||This symposium focuses on the discovery of novel processing methods, manufacturing, and performance of materials systems under the influence of microwaves, electric and magnetic fields (ac or dc), laser, ultrasound and mechanical energy. The symposium explores the fundamental science and mechanisms underlying these processing methods. Phenomena where electric and magnetic driving forces are coupled with mechanical and chemical effects will be emphasized especially at the system level. Sessions at the symposium will cover but not limited to the following topics: (i) Microwave Materials Processing, (ii) Electric Field Assisted Sintering, (iii) Phenomena in Li+ Batteries, (iv) Biological Phenomena in Electric and Magnetic fields, and (v) Microstructure Evolution and Phase Transformations under the influence of Electric and/or Magnetic fields.
