Has anyone come across an example where electromagnetic fields have been applied
during crystallization processes. For example to modify crystal properties like magnetization or to change the polymorphism.
In principle the use of electric / magnetic fields should change the formation of a micro/nano crystal because it changes the potential of the individual atoms in solution.
What do you think about this?

Thanks for any constructive discussion on this.

Yes, it is all through the literature - just google your question and look for scholarly articles.
