A Detailed and Comparative Study on Conventional Sintering with Microwave Sintering and Vacuum Sintering of Y2O3-Al2O3-ZrO2 Ceramics

This chapter focused on comparative studies on conventional, microwave and vacuum sintering of alumina-added stabilised zirconia yttria (YSZ). When energy and time savings are involved, microwave sintering has been found to be the most effective sintering technique. In contrast to
