Monday, April 5 – Saturday, April 11

On April 5—when the ECS paywall comes down—more than 160,000 scientific journal and magazine articles and meeting abstracts become available at no charge. Free the Science Week 2021 reaffirms the Society’s long-term vision for open access: research that is openly available to anyone, anywhere in the world. Tag articles of interest now, to access them quickly when the paywall comes down!

Fifth annual Free the Science Week

ECS is celebrating its fifth annual Free the Science Week from April 5-11, 2021. For the duration of the week, the ECS Digital Library, hosted on IOPscience, is freely accessible to everyone. The Library includes the Society’s entire collection of published research including the Journal of The Electrochemical Society, the oldest peer-reviewed journal in its field. (more…)

Focus Issue on Molecular Electronics

Call for Papers

ECS Journal of Solid State Science and TechnologyThe ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue on molecular electronics, covering emerging molecular electronic devices and allied topics. This issue features novel molecular systems, their organization or their grafting on surfaces, and their integration in molecular junctions or molecular transistors of various sizes. It presents transport mechanisms within such systems, new paradigms, and new electronic and optoelectronic functionality obtained using molecules as the active components in devices (rectifiers, transistors, memories, etc.). Also addressed is the development of devices of academic and technological interest with superior properties and size shrinkage advantages. The needed characterization tools (spectroscopic, microscopic, etc.) are of interest, too. (more…)

The long-anticipated fourth edition of Electrochemical Systems by John Newman and Nitash P. Balsara is now available.* The fourth edition updates all of the chapters, adds content on lithium battery electrolyte characterization and polymer electrolytes, and includes a new chapter on impedance spectroscopy. Topics covered include electrochemical theories as they relate to the understanding of electrochemical systems; the foundations of thermodynamics; chemical kinetics; transport phenomena including the electrical potential and charged specials; and how to apply electrochemical principles to systems analysis and mathematical modeling.

ECS thanks Drs. John Newman and Nitash Balsara, authors of Electrochemical Systems Fourth Edition, for generously speaking with us in December 2020.

Interface Winter Issue is Here!

The cold winds are blowing and with the first falling snowflakes comes winter Interface. As we are still affected by the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to publish the winter 2020 issue of Interface in a digital-only format. As a member of the Society, I’m thrilled to give you a first glimpse into our most recent issue. Published today, it focuses on Advanced Manufacturing for High-Temperature Materials, guest edited by Sean Bishop and Jianhua (Joshua) Tong.
