Abstract

A comparative study of grain growth behavior in silicon nitride under conventional and microwave annealing is presented. Microwave annealed specimens showed a faster growth rate as indicated by the quantitative microstructural analysis. The phenomenon was used in combination with seeding techniques to develop a silicon nitride exhibiting a bi-modal microstructure. Microwave annealing was carried out using a microwave radiation frequency of 28 GHz.
