Results are given for preliminary experiments on processing of conventional and nanophase ceramic materials by conventional (2.45GHz) and high frequency (≥35 GHz) microwave processing. Characterization of materials processed under different conditions (time, temperature, frequency) includes XRD, density, and microstructure. The basis for such experimentation is discussed briefly, including results of previous measurements showing significant advantages in high frequency microwave processing of nanophase ceramics, and previous experi-ments, showing enhanced sintering of aluminum oxide with 28 GHz microwave processing. The results to-date, while somewhat promising, do not show these dramatic results.
