Abstract : The symposium was held during the 93rd Annual Meeting of The American Ceramic Society in Cincinnati, OH, April 29-May 3, 1991. One objective was to assemble the experts in this emerging technology for the purpose of identifying problem areas and defining potential solutions. A second objective was to explore new applications where microwave energy can have significant impact. A third objective was to bring together researchers, materials fabricators, and microwave equipment manufacturers for the purpose of expediting technology transfer and commercialization of important discoveries in this field. Participants from 7 countries presented 80 papers at the symposium. A combination of keynote, invited, and contributed presentations provided excellent overviews of existing programs, microwave/materials interactions, measurements, equipment design, modeling, and applications. Microwave/Material Interactions; Modeling; Dielectric Measurements; Microwave sintering; Microwave Processing of Nonoxides; Microwave Applications in Waste Management; Joining/ Composite Fabrication with Microwave Energy; Novel.
