Microwave Energy

Microwave energy has become an integral part in all types of Materials Science. Microwave synthesis systems are used to provide the required energy to achieve high temperatures that enable reactions to be performed rapidly and efficiently as possible. Microwaves are an “instant on/instant off” energy source used to rapidly raise the temperature of the reactants, while also significantly reducing the risk of overheating, resulting in high quality materials.

Microwave energy has been used to make materials such as:

Quantum Dots


Metal Oxides

Nitride powders

Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

Gold, Silver, and other metal nanomaterials

Nanocomposite materials

Lithium ion materials and more…
