Abstract

The sintering behavior of coprecipitated Sb-doped SnO2 was investigated using microwave power absorption. With microwave power, samples were sintered at 1450°C for 20 min and showed a density as high as 99.9% of theoretical. However, samples fired in conventional electric furnace at the same temperature for 4 h showed only 60% of theoretical density. Microwave sintering also led to improvement in terms of uniform structure and electrical properties.
