Microwave Sintering of Oxide Ceramics

  • J.R. Brandon (a1), J. Samuels (a1) and W.R. Hodgkins (a1)

Abstract

The activities of EA Technology in microwave processing of oxide ceramics are reviewed. Comparative sintering rate measurement techniques have been used to demonstrate microwave enhanced densification of oxide ceramics. Temperature distributions within microwave and conventionally heated ceramics are simulated. Based on these simulations a method for firing large components has been developed which achieves uniform microstructures and low thermal stresses by careful control of temperature distribution.
