报告摘要:

A recent development of millimeter-wave thermal rocket has proposed α-alumina as a promising candidate material for the absorbing heat exchanger of the millimeter-wave thermal launch system. Successful design of microwave thermal propulsion systems requires fundamental understanding of the dielectric and thermal properties of heat-exchanger materials under high frequency microwaves at high temperature (> 1,000 K). Using molecular dynamics simulations, we found that drastically different melting temperatures and behaviors can be achieved for α-alumina using microwave heating, where the electric field is aligned with different crystallographic orientations. Namely, alumina melts much earlier at lower temperatures when the electric field is parallel to the c-axis. The atomistic mechanism was identified as selective liberation of the Al sublattice due to the shear instability along the c-axis. This directional melting concept may be used for triggering distinct dynamical instabilities and melting of dielectric crystals using polarized microwave fields.
