Microwave has been often used for nano-particle synthesis because rapid growth and mono-dispersed particle size are obtained. However, superheat behavior causes larger bubble and disorders temperature distribution when higher power of microwave is irradiated. Accordingly, superheat must be prevented for stable operation of nano-particle process. In previous study [1], we found that bubble formation happened during particle formation at the same time when FeCl3 aqueous solution is heated by… CONTINUE READING
