dc.description.abstract A new method for plasma enhanced microwave joining of high purity (99.8%) alumina has been developed. The controlled application of a plasma between the adjoining surfaces of two rods permits the initial heating of low microwave absorbing alumina to sufficiently high temperatures where they can effectively absorb microwave energy. With this technology, the adjacent surfaces of alumina rods can be melted and welded together in less than three minutes using approximately 400 watts of microwave energy. Four point bending tests measured fracture strengths of up to 132 MPa at the joined interface. en_US
