You are cordially invited to the January meeting of the ECS Detroit Section on Thursday, January 23!

The meeting will feature Jeff Yambrick, from SVOLT Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (Chinese: 蜂巢能源), who will introduce SVOLT Energy, a new and fast-growing player in battery manufacturing space.

The meeting will take place at the Lawrence Technological University (21000 West Ten Mile Road, Southfield, MI 48075) Building #5 (Taubman Welcome Center) 4th floor, Room 406. (more…)

Rethinking Plastic

Plastic, it’s very handy. It’s lightweight, corrosion-resistant, durable, and yet, it’s also hazardous to the environment.

This led to the workshop “Closing the Loop on the Plastics Dilemma”—hosted by the Chemical Sciences Roundtable in Washington, DC—which asked chemists, chemical engineers, and participants in related fields to reimagine how plastics are created, used, and managed.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicines shares what took place at the May 2019 workshop, including presentations and discussions, available now in the Proceedings in Brief. (more…)

Accepting Submissions: December 26, 2019 – March 25, 2020

Submit your manuscripts to the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology Focus Issue on Gallium Oxide Based Materials and Devices II.

About the focus issue

This issue of the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is the second in a series that aims to cover the growth, characterization, processing and device applications of Ga2O3. GaN and SiC based wide bandgap device technologies have matured and become limited by fundamental material properties. A new class of oxide wide band gap materials are emerging (gallium oxide and aluminum gallium oxide) that offer potentially improved figure of merit over GaN and SiC for power devices. The availability of Ga2O3 single crystals and epitaxial films with large area and excellent quality has led to renewed interest in this ultra-wide bandgap semiconductor for solar-blind photodetectors, sensors, and power electronics.
