This paper describes a new instrument for performing thermal analysis using microwaves both as a form of heating and as a novel means of detecting thermally induced transformations in materials. Results are presented for a selection of processes including decompositions, dehydrations and phase changes. The capability of the instrument to be coupled with ancillary techniques such as EGA is also demonstrated.
