Microwave protection barrier. Close-up of a microwave oven glass door, showing the conductive mesh that prevents the microwave radiation escaping. The mesh forms a type of Faraday shield, which works on the principle that electromagnetic radiation will always find it easier to hit a bar than pass in between to another object. In this instance the mesh acts as a Faraday shield because the distance between the bars is much less than the microwaves' 12 centimetre wavelength.
