Model experiments for the initial stage of microwave sintering have revealed volume diffusion that can be accompanied by evaporation-condensation and surface diffusion. The volume diffusion is also confirmed by closer distances between the particles. The experimental data show that the mass transfer is intensified during microwave heating.
