Abstract : The heating of a ceramic slab under TM-illumination is modeled and analyzed in the small Biot number regime. The steady state temperature is nearly constant in this limit and its value is a function of the microwave power. This function is multivalued when the electrical conductivity is modeled as an exponential function of temperature. Limiting cases and examples are presented and physically interpreted.
