We develop a method to calculate the electromagnetic field distribution in complex materials. The system contains multiple phases with different electrical and magnetic properties and also contains multiple components which can diffuse around to affect the local electromagnetic properties. Based on the calculations we are able to determine the interaction between electromagnetic field and materials microstructure and property evolutions. It is possible to use electromagnetic field to drive materials phase and compositions to redistribute. Using the theoretical predictions we have made many novel materials which are not possible to achieve by other conventional method. It is possible to use electromagnetic field to manipulate nano-scale gas bubbles, liquid droplets and solid inclusions in materials matrix.
