For the purpose of rapid heating of DFP on occasion of engine ignition, microwave heating has been taken into consideration. We have attempted to develop DPF materials for this purpose. We fabricated porous ceramic/metal composite materials and examined their microwave rapid heating characteristics. Microwave absorbing ceramics can be heated well, but not necessarily suitable for the internal heating. As metal particles can be heated rapidly by microwave, we attempted fabrication of DPF material with metal particles dispersed in microwave non-absorbing inorganic materials, through which microwave can penetrate deep inside. Hence, volumetric heating can be attained. In this paper, it will be shown on the combustion experiments of the soot simulants.
