NiZnFe 2O 4 are usually prepared by conventional ceramic procedure, in which the stoichiometric compositions and final microstructures are difficult to control. The prolonged heating may cause constituents to evaporate, thereby modifying the stoichiometry. Volatilization of zinc at high temperature results in formation of Fe2+ ions, which in turn increases electron hopping and reduce resistivity. The microwave sintering procedure can offer rapidity in heating that can effectively reduce the sintering time. The microwaves can also alter the microstructure considerably as a result of enhanced diffusion process. In this study, the differences between microwave sintered NiZnFe 2O 4 and conventional sintered NiZnFe 2O 4 will be stressed. The difference in microstructure, magnetic properties, and dielectric properties will be highlighted. The diffusion mechanisms in the case of conventional sintering and microwave sintering will be discussed. The magnetic and dielectric property differences by using Fe 3O 4 and Fe 2O 3 as ingredients will also be discussed.
