    Talk Title: The Physics of Flash Sintering and Related Phenomena

    Abstract: Flash sintering, first discovered in 2010, has three features, a non-linear increase in electrical conductivity, electroluminescence and a massive increase in solid state diffusion. More recently the experiments have expanded into new regimes of physics and materials science. For example powders of elemental oxides sinter and transform into single phase ceramics of complex chemistries in a few seconds at furnace temperature well below 1000 C. The simplicity and frugality of the method is striking. Flash is emerging as an enabling technology for the synthesis of compounds, such as solid-state electrolytes for lithium ion batteries, which are difficult to make by conventional methods
