Alumina gel was used in microwave joining of alumina ceramics. Both high purity and low purity alumina samples were joined successfully. Direct joining and joining with gel were both carried out and a comparison between the two types of joints was made. The effect of joining time, temperature, and gel concentration on the joining process was studied. The results showed that joint strength is highly dependent on joining temperature and time, and less dependent on gel concentration. SEM micrographs taken at the joint region showed that for specific joining conditions, the joint line was undetectable. Knoop microhardness Measurements showed joint microhardness higher than the microhardness of the as-received alumina.
