Paper Title:
Fabrication of Porous Hydroxyapatite Ceramics by Microwave Sintering Method
  Abstract

Microwave processing of porous hydroxyapatite ceramics was investigated in a dual frequency microwave-sintering furnace. The results revealed that microwave-sintering process could get sintered ceramics at much shorter sintering time and at lower sintering temperature than that of the conventionally heat-sintering process. Further, the microwave-sintered samples showed much smaller grain size and more uniform microstructure and reached a comparable compressive strength. The mechanism of rapid heating behavior of hydroxyapatite ceramics in microwave was also discussed. The results revealed that microwave processing was a promising method for sintering porous hydroxyapatite ceramics.
