The joining of Al2O3 rods using SiC particles in a microwave field was examined. SiC with high microwave absorption characteristics is coated on the fracture surface of Al2O3 rods. Then, microwave irradiation is performed using a 2.45 GHz single-mode cavity and the Al2O3 rods are rapidly joined. Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy reveals that the substance generated on the joining surface comprises Al and O. It is believed that the SiC interacts with the microwave to generate microwave plasma and that the plasma melts the Al2O3 rods. Thus, the matrix melts and the fracture surfaces are joined.
