Abstract

The self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) reactions, combined with an applied magnetic field offer a fast, cheap and efficient route for manufacturing a host of commercially relevant ceramic materials. The external magnetic fields can be used to control the nature of the combustion wave, including its velocity and temperature, allowing a wide range of unique products to be made. SHS reactions can be thought of as `controlled fireworks' because they proceed through a propagation wave that moves away from the initial source of ignition at a uniform speed. Imagination and an eye for novel applications of the process are all that is needed for further exploitation of the method.
