Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The solid state reactions carried in a multimode microwave chamber was investigated. A single mode TE 103 cavity are treated inside a quartz reaction tube in which, the position of E-field lies at centers whereas the position of H-field lies along the sides of the cavity. Highly doped n-type silicon powder responded aggresively to a 2.45 GHz microwave E-field whereas it remained completely unpertubed in the H-field. Results show that the E-field treatment has considerably distorted the lattice structure creating lattice strains throughout the sample.
