There are a lot of epidemiology studies focused on the effects of microwave in life phenomena; however, there are few studies about effects on biomolecular behaviors by microwave irradiation. We constructed microwave irradiation systems for detailed analyses of biomolecular behaviors in this study. We developed a one-direction linear-polarized microwave irradiator with alinear polarization antenna, and a two-direction linear-polarized microwave irradiator with two linear polarization antennas.Finally, a study about influence of microwave in biomineralization, an example of the effects on biomolecular behaviors in life phenomena, was conducted with a precipitating peptide using the developed microwave irradiation systems. Throughout this study, the linear-polarized microwave irradiation systems would be one of the most powerful tools for studies about life and biological phenomena as well as biomolecular behaviors.
