The overall objective of this project was to build an in-situ characterization system to observe the dynamics involved in EM field-assisted materials processing. To achieve this objective, the project was divided into the following tasks 1. Identify, purchase, and integrate each piece of equipment hardware required to set-up the COMPACT system COMPLETED 2. Perform an ex-situ measurement using reference materials i.e. polymer, ceramic to confirm the successful set-up of COMPACT system. COMPLETED 3. Perform an in-situ measurement to understand the mechanism of the field-assisted synthesis. IN PROGRESS
