IEEE-SA - IEEE Announces No-Cost Public Access to Select IEEE C95 Standards for Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields, 15 Feb 2012 [cached]
"The publication of these standards provides, more easily than ever before, the factual information that underlies the standards that most countries, including the U.S., base their safety regulations on," said John M. Osepchuk, PhD, an IEEE Life Fellow and Past Chairman of the ICES Technical Committee C95.

Dr. John M. Osepchuk, Independent Consultant; Full Spectrum Consulting
Education: A. B. ('49), Harvard College; A. M. ('50), Ph. D. ('57), Harvard University.
Dr. Osepchuk worked for Raytheon Company in microwave R&D (ferrites, plasmas, tubes and heating systems). He played a leadership role in founding and operating many activities in the IEEE (Life member of COMAR; Chairman Emeritus of IEEE/ICES SCC-28; Adcom member in MTT-S and SIT-S); IMPI (JMP editor and President); EEA (Organizer and officer); and BEMS (Sustaining member). He is a Fellow of the IEEE and IMPI, a member of ,,, and ,,, and was awarded the IEEE Standards medallion in 1998, and the IEEE Millennium medal in 2000. He has authored many patents and publications, including a key patent on microwave-oven door-choke seal design. His present activities include studies of the microwave auditory effects, microwave heating (for Amana) and safety (for wireless companies and the U. S. Air Force). He has led the effort to strengthen the global influence of the IEEE, through the International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES) in developing international consensus standards for safe use of electromagnetic energy. He is also leading the global effort by the ISM community to resolve the RFI issues accompanying the shared use of ISM bands by wireless systems and ISM equipment.

One of the subject matter experts on this topic is John Osepchuk, who worked at Raytheon during the 60s, 70s and 80s. His papers on the topic include:
"A History of Microwave Heating Applications", IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, Vol. MTT-32, No. 9. Page 1205
John has complained in recent years at IEEE talks that some web sites propose that the microwave oven was invented in Russia, or Germany, but then again, you can find almost anything you want on the internet. We hereby invite John to give us a hand telling the real microwave oven story!
Maybe John will send us a picture of the burn-in stand one of these days...
Spencer's thoughts turned to heating food; legend has it that a candy bar melted in his pocket from stray radiation. However, he could not have been thinking of a consumer application, as the high cost of microwave equipment would prevent widespread home use.
This quote is from Osepchuk's 1984 article, which confirms Bock's contribution:

Finally, John Osepchuk, Raytheon Corporation physicist, spoke on "Dishonesty in Industry and Government. After mentioning some examples of dishonesty in industry, John focused on the growing social problem of technical misinformation which arises from incompetence, self-deception, or downright charlatanry, and is aggravated by sensation-seeking journalism. The general public's widespread misunderstanding of the hazards of electromagnetic radiation was illustrated with a number of examples, from the E.L.F. (extremely low frequency) of high-voltage lines or the Navy's project Seafarer, to microwave and even RF radiation. Recently this irrational perspective has resulted in attacks on international missionary broadcasting, on the grounds that it poses a radiation hazard to the environment--even though radiation levels are far below U.S. safety standards. Christian scientists in particular, John emphasized, should be using our expertise to help correct false information and restore a realistic perspective to the general public.
