A Rieke diagram, shown in Figure 1, shows the output power and frequency of the magnetron as a function of the phase and magnitude of the impedance mismatch.
As a consequence, both magnetrons and ovens were designed for operation closer to the sink region, the region on the Rieke diagram where all frequencies meet.
