The development of next-generation solid state ion conductors hinges on an understanding of microscopic diffusion mechanisms and the identification of roadblocks along macroscopic diffusion pathways (e.g., intragrain defects and grain boundaries). (more…)

Dr. Ahok Vijh

The ECS Canada Section is now accepting nominations for the Canada Section Electrochemical Award, established in 1981 to recognize significant contributions to the advancement of electrochemistry in Canada. The recipient’s achievements are recognized with a gold medal at the section’s 2022 annual meeting.

This award is conferred every four years. Ashok Vijh, a distinguished scientist and founding member of the Hydro-Québec Institute of Research, received the last award in 2018.

Consider your fellow Canada Section electrochemists and acknowledge their hard work by submitting a nomination today! Please review the full award details carefully before completing the application.

The ECS Canada Section bestows four awards that are part of the ECS Honors and Awards Program—a program that has recognized scientific accomplishments in the Society’s disciplines for decades.

Sponsored by BioLogic

Through this award sponsored by BioLogic since 2012, the ECS Energy Technology Division recognizes the accomplishments of a promising young engineering or science graduate student in the fields pertaining to this division. Congratulations to Charles Tai-Chieh Wan, the winner of this year’s ECS Energy Technology Division Graduate Student Award!

Charles Tai-Chieh Wan

Charles Tai-Chieh Wan is a PhD candidate in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, U.S., under the co-supervision of Prof. Fikile R. Brushett and Prof. Yet-Ming Chiang. In 2017, he completed a BS summa cum laude in chemical and biomolecular engineering at Cornell University, U.S.

Wan’s graduate thesis work focuses on developing designer electrode microstructures and surfaces for redox flow batteries by advancing unconventional yet potentially beneficial paradigms. His research efforts include leveraging principles of phase separation to synthesize and probe new electrode microstructures, investigating thin-film organic coatings to mediate the electrode-electrolyte interface, and examining biomass-derived materials for use in redox flow batteries.
