Abstract : Microwave sintering of Y(3%)-TZP has been performed in a TE10n single mode rectangular applicator. Ultra-fine grain sizes of 0.2-0.35 micron and high densities of 98 to 99.5%(TD) were achieved as the sintering temperatures ranged from 1250 to 1600 deg C. The problem of phase transformation induced cracking may be solved by raising the presintering temperature to remove the residual monoclinic phase in green samples.
