The Electrochemical Society is now accepting nominations for the newly established John B. Goodenough Award of The Electrochemical Society
The Society announced the creation of the new biannual award at Nobel laureate and longtime ECS member John B. Goodenough’s 100th Birthday Celebration on July 25, 2022. The award recognizes distinguished and outstanding contributions in:
- Fundamental and technological aspects of electrochemical materials science and engineering;
- Materials innovations in the areas of batteries, solid ion conductors, fuel cells, transition-metal oxides, and/or magnetic materials.
Nomination deadline: October 23, 2022
There are still opportunities before the end of the year to recognize colleagues, students, and fellow scientists and engineers for their outstanding efforts and contributions to electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. The list of upcoming deadlines for ECS Society, division, section, and student awards follows. Nominate today!
The Daniel Cubicciotti Student Award recognizes a deserving undergraduate student from a college or university in Northern California pursuing a career in the physical sciences. First prize recipients receive an etched metal plaque and $2,000 prize. The section also recognizes up to two students with honorable mentions. They receive framed certificates and $500 prizes.
The Electrochemistry Society announced the creation of a new biannual award at Nobel laureate John B. Goodenough’s 100th Birthday Celebration on July 25, 2022. “When we announced the new award at his 100th Birthday Celebration, Prof. Goodenough turned to the audience and said, ‘Thank you. Thank you all very much, and remember this: one step at a time!’ John’s unprecedented years of service to the scientific community are an inspiration to us all,” said Christopher Jannuzzi, ECS Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer.
The John B. Goodenough Award of The Electrochemical Society
The new award recognizes distinguished contributions to the fundamental and technological aspects of electrochemical materials science and engineering. The recipient will be renowned for paradigm-shifting contributions in the fields of electrochemical and/or solid state science and exceptionally creative experimental or theoretical studies that opened new directions in electrochemical energy storage, electrocatalysis, and/or solid ion conductors and high temperature materials for electrochemical devices. The first recipient will receive the award and present a general address at the 243rd ECS Meeting in Boston, MA, in May 2023.
Congratulations to the 2022 Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division student award winners: Arghya Patra and Matthew Liu. Learn about the award winners below!
Award Recipient: Matthew Liu
Matthew Liu is a PhD student in the Chemical Engineering Department at Stanford University and a NASA space technology graduate research fellow. A member of William Tarpeh’s lab, Matthew researches electrochemical reactive-separation processes to recover ammonia from nitrogen-rich wastewaters. He has a particular focus on electrocatalytic nitrate reduction, which has led him to investigate systems driven by heterogeneous catalysis, molecular catalysis, and single atom catalysis. Matthew is also interested in how the structure and composition of the microenvironment at the electrode-electrolyte interface directs nitrate reduction performance. (more…)
Congratulations to Sho Fujita of Queen’s University, Canada, recipient of the 2022 ECS Canada Section Student Award! For over 20 years, the section has recognized promising young engineers and scientists in the field of electrochemical power sources with this award. To qualify, students must be pursuing PhDs at Canadian universities in any area of science or engineering in which electrochemical science and technology and/or solid state science and technology is the central consideration. A Canadian university faculty member nominates them.
Support your colleagues, students, and fellow scientists and engineers’ noteworthy contributions by nominating them for an ECS award! They deserve to be recognized for their hard work and accomplishments.
You are invited to nominate qualified candidate(s) for the ECS Electronics and Photonics Division Award.
The award was established in 1969 to encourage excellence in electronics research and outstanding technical contributions to the field of electronics science. The award recognizes authors who have made noteworthy scientific contributions and enhanced the scientific stature of the Society by the presentation of well-received papers in ECS journals and at Society meetings.
The 2023 award recipient is recognized at the 243rd ECS Meeting in Boston, MA, in May 2023, and presents their award talk there. Explore the full award details on the ECS website prior to completing the electronic application.
The award consists of a scroll; US $1,500 prize; and either ECS lifetime membership or up to US $1,000 for non-reimbursed travel expenses to the conference. Award winners join a long list of distinguished recipients including the most recent, Eddy Simoen.(more…)
