Abstract : This is an overview of practical aspects for ultra-rapid sintering of ceramics in single mode applicators. The efficiency and performance of microwave systems can be markedly improved by innovative designs. Discussion will focus on the main problems and their solutions in microwave sintering such as arcing, temperature heterogeneity, thermal runaway, cracking and inability to heat up ceramics with low loss factors.
