Abstract: Microwave assisted preparation has been shown to improve the performance of hematite photoelectrodes for solar driven water splitting. To understand the microwave heating process further, the distribution of the electromagnetic (EM) fields within the material is analysed using finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) EM software. The rate of the increase in temperature is calculated from the simulated EM field distributions. In order to validate the simulation results, the calculated temperatures were compared with the experimental temperatures obtained using a thermal imaging camera.
