Transparent conductors exist [link].

Why not use one of these materials for the window into a microwave oven, instead of a piece of metal mesh?

       Possible answer to your question: they are not conductive enough. Modern electronic gadgets with touchscreen only need to handle milliwatts of power; microwave ovens routinely employ hundreds of watts of power.

       A composite of wires fine enough and the conducting film might make things a bit clearer.

       Now can we have the same for the Faraday cage I have set up around my lab?

       There's a patent for microwave glasses that have two transparent conductive films, spaced 1/4 wavelength apart.

       These glasses, if you wear them, you can see in the microwave band, right ? That would be cool ...   

       Is there a choice of frames ? Maybe Ray-Ban Wayfarers ?
