Abstract : Magnetite, Fe3O4, is a strong absorber of microwave energy, which can be used to enhance heating in microwave transparent or low absorbing matrices. To examine the heat generation of magnetite for ultimate use in materials consolidation, magnetite was dispersed in relatively low absorbing soda-lime glass particles. The effects of magnetite weight fraction, microwave power, and sintering time on temperatures and bulk properties of the sintered specimens are presented.
