The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 241st ECS Meeting symposium, Heterogeneous Functional Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage 3.

Heterogeneous functional materials (HeteroFoaMs) are pervasive in electrochemical devices. These devices consist of multiple materials combined at multiple scales (from atomic to macro) that actively interact during their functional history in a manner that controls their collective performance as a system at the global level. The principal motivation for this focus issue is to provide a place to publish the science that controls emergent properties in heterogeneous functional materials as a foundation for design of functional material devices with performance not bounded by constituent properties.

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 241st ECS Meeting Carbon Nanostructures and Devices symposia.

The ECS Nanocarbon Division offers eight to 10 symposia covering different aspects of nanocarbon research in the Society’s spring meeting and a general nanocarbon symposium in the fall meeting. About 15-20 percent of the presented papers in the spring meeting are from symposia offered by the nanocarbon division. Researchers across the globe participate in these meetings.

This focus issue is intended to encourage the up-and-coming younger generation of scientists working on nanocarbons to participate in ECS Nanocarbon Division activities and publish their work in Society journals. This intended high-impact issue will provide up-to-date information on all areas of nanocarbon research. (more…)

The Electrochemical Society is proud to announce the Society’s distinguished members recognized as 2021 Highly Cited Researchers. The prestigious list, published by the Web of Science Group at Clarivate Analytics, identifies scientists and social scientists who produced multiple papers ranking in the top 1 percent by citations for their field and year of publication, demonstrating significant research influence among their peers.

The total number of highly cited researchers in 2021 was 6,602, which includes 2,828 for cross-field performance and 3,774 in specific fields. According to Clarivate, Highly Cited Researchers are one in 1,000 of the world’s population of scientists and social scientists.

Research by the following ECS members is shaping scientific discourse today and into the future. (more…)
