Intelligent Materials Synthesis Based on Millimeter-Wave Heating and SPS Methods


Article Preview

Characteristics of heating processing based on millimeter-wave or pulsed high current are discussed from the standpoint of the interaction between electromagnetic energy and solid materials. Capabilities of the electromagnetic processing are indicated by exemplifying several successful results such as millimeter-wave sintering of AlN, millimeter-wave post-annealing of aerosol-deposited PZT films and synthesis of single-phase nano-structured anatase by SPS (or pulsed high current heating). It is shown in these examples that well-characterized properties such as high thermal conductivity and preferential orientation are created by the inherent effect due to the electromagnetic field, which is called microwave or SPS effect in millimeter-wave or SPS processing.
