The microwave-drill technology employs concentrated microwave energy in order to drill thermally in hard non-metallic materials such as silicon, ceramics, glasses, concrete, and rocks. Besides drilling, this technology enables insertion of pins and nails, melting, cutting, and jointing operations. This paper describes the microwave-drill principles and its experimental implementations, and presents some of its possible applications.
