Students submitted 41 posters to the 239th ECS Meeting Z01 General Student Poster Session. Judges reviewed the digital presentations and chose the following for awards. Congratulations to the winners! Please take a moment to celebrate the excellent work of the authors listed below. If you missed viewing the poster presentations, they are accessible online through June 26, 2021. There is no fee, however registration for the meeting is required.

The following guest post is by Morgan Frey, Marketing Lead, Ereztech LLC Logistics may not be top-of-mind when thinking about electrochemical and solid state manufacturing processes, but one failed shipment can throw an entire production schedule off target. Specialty chemicals, such as atomic layer deposition (ALD) precursors for the manufacture of thin films, are considered hazardous materials (hazmat) and therefore require special care and preparation for transportation.

The following guest post is by Telpriore G. Tucker, PhD, founder of the ECS Valley of the Sun (Central Arizona) Student Chapter. In it, Tucker discusses his life and work, his experiences with the Society, and his continual efforts to promote the study of electrochemistry throughout the Valley of the Sun.  My name is Telpriore “Greg” Tucker. I’m a postdoctoral research associate in the School of Molecular Sciences at Arizona State University (ASU) in Tempe, AZ. I simply go by…

Guest post by Jennifer Bardwell, Technical Editor of the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS). This paper, from Kumamoto University in Japan, concerns a technique for abrasive-free polishing of silicon carbide (SiC). This topic is timely as SiC is an important material for wide bandgap electronics, both in its own right, and as a substrate for gallium nitride electronics. The reviewers note that: “Defect free polishing of SiC surface has high significance” and that “The results are…

Photos and text by Galina Strukova and Gennady Strukov. In a response to a recent call for photos, Galina Strukova sent us some great shots of the microworld of palladium-nickle alloy. You’re looking at pictures of real objects of the palladium-nickel alloy, the size of the samples ranging from tens of micrometers to 1-2 millimeters. They are produced via self-organization of nano-sized (several nanometer in diameter) wires growing on porous membranes under the action of electric current pulses. The authors…

Photos and text by E. Jennings Taylor. In a response to a recent call for photos, ECS Treasurer E. Jennings Taylor sent us some great shots of the innovative research coming out of Faraday Technology Inc. Here’s the first one: Regarding this photo, it is a superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavity made of niobium. These SRF cavities are used in particle accelerators, such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), as well…
