Join us as the 237th ECS Meeting and the 18th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS 2020) comes to the Palais des Congres de Montréal in Montréal, Canada from May 10-15, 2020. This is a can’t miss event for electrochemists and solid state scientists, featuring over 50 symposia in the following areas:
Book your sponsorship by Friday, August 2
By sponsoring a symposium at the 236th ECS Meeting, October 13-17, 2019 in Atlanta, GA, you will be directly supporting the scientists and engineers who make the meeting possible. Sponsorships offset travel expenses, registration fees, complimentary proceedings, and/or host receptions for invited speakers, researchers, and students. Symposium sponsorships offer a unique opportunity to highlight your brand to a targeted audience at ECS. (more…)
Call for Papers: Recent Advances in Wide Bandgap III-Nitride Devices and Solid State Lighting: A Tribute to Isamu AkasakiPosted on July 11, 2019 by ECS Staff
Submit your manuscripts to the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS) Focus Issue on Recent Advances in Wide Bandgap III-Nitride Devices and Solid State Lighting: A Tribute to Isamu Akasaki.
About Isamu Akasaki
Isamu Akasaki has devoted much of his research career to the development and advancement of efficient GaN light-emitting diodes via a metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy growth process. This approach led to the discovery of p-type GaN with magnesium doping and ultimately to the invention of the first GaN p-n junction blue/ultraviolet LED in 1989. Subsequent work by Akasaki’s group led to advances in conductivity control of n-type GaN and related alloys by doping with silicon, allowing for the use of hetero structures and quantum wells in the design and fabrication of even more efficient p-n junction structures and the development of wide bandgap III-Nitride semiconductors for solid state lighting and related technologies. These groundbreaking efforts were recognized in 2014 with the Nobel Prize in Physics. (more…)
ECS meetings are well known for their strength in areas such as batteries/energy storage, fuel cells/energy conversion, electrochemical engineering, semiconductors, sensors, corrosion, carbon nanostructures, and more. With a technical program of over 2,400 abstracts being presented in 52 symposia over 5 days, the 236th ECS Meeting in Atlanta, GA will also feature newer symposia such as: ionic liquids as reactive media for electrodeposition processes; reduction of CO2: from laboratory to industrial scale; sonoelectrochemistry; and electrochemistry in space.
You can also take a moment and read topic close-ups for the following symposia: (more…)
