Microwave (MW) processing is emerging as an innovative and highly effective material processing method offering many advantages over conventional methods especially for sintering application. In the present study, using a mixed powder of the Ni55Nb25Ti15Pt5metallic glassy powder prepared by an argon gas atomization process blended with 50 vol.% Sn powder, the MW-induced heating and sintering were carried out by a single-mode 2.45 GHz MW applicator in a magnetic field maximum. The structure and thermal stability of the sintered glassy composite specimens were investigated. The addition of Sn particles enhanced densification of the sintered Ni-based metallic glassy alloy powders.
