Microwave processing of ceramics is fast emerging as a new field of ceramic processing and material synthesis. The past year has witnessed significant progress in the aspect of commercialization and application of the technology to new areas. The most significant developments have been the use of microwaves in the sintering of non-oxides, such as tungsten carbide-based components and powdered metals, fabrication of transparent ceramics, and the design of continuous microwave systems.
