The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 241st ECS Meeting Nucleation and Growth symposium.

This focus issue aims to capture the latest findings and insights related to phase transformation in electrochemical systems. Contributions for this cross-disciplinary pursuit are sought from researchers with diverse expertise and backgrounds reporting on the latest experimental and computational approaches to understanding nucleation and growth phenomena during electrodeposition and dissolution.

Modern imaging, scattering, and spectroscopy tools along with related methods are enhancing our understanding of phase transformations across a wide range of length scales. In the case of electrodeposition, nucleation and growth play a central role in applications ranging from microelectronics and MEMS to energy conversion and storage systems. This focus issue brings together researchers with diverse expertise and backgrounds to share new experimental and computational approaches to enable progress in the mechanistic understanding of nucleation and growth phenomena. Interest is focused on resolving and explaining the morphological, structural, and compositional evolution of electrode surfaces during electrodeposition. Understanding shape selection, stability criteria, and exploring engineering strategies aimed at specific technological ends are also of interest. (more…)

IOP announces a significant investment in the range of ECS Digital Library on IOP Science features. The investment is part of ECS’s and IOP’s commitment to ensuring the platform’s functionality, accessibility, performance, and security. In the coming weeks, to modernise and improve the platform, a small number of features will be temporarily unavailable with some withdrawn completely where usage is low or alternatives are available. This is necessary to replace old technologies with modern, secure, scalable cloud services with improved functioning and reliability. (more…)

For over thirty years, The Electrochemical Society Interface magazine has been the voice of ECS members. The Society’s for-members by-members publication has shared announcements of great achievements, awards, and milestones; technical information; and hot topics from the community—including announcements of losses and memorials. For years, ECS members enjoyed having Interface reach their mailboxes and rest on their coffee tables. However, the organization has grown and its membership spans the globe. The importance of minimizing one’s carbon footprint has risen in criticality. Therefore, as the organization seeks to expand its reach digitally, Interface will no longer be printed, packed, and shipped to members. It will be available exclusively on the ECS Digital Library.

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue on Emerging Trends in CMP. Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) is a widely accepted global planarization technology that has been deployed by integrated circuit (IC) manufacturers across the globe. It is considered a critical and enabling step in IC manufacturing. A CMP process requires a correct combination of CMP consumables such as slurry, pad, pad conditioner, and cleaning chemistries, along with equipment and end point technology. As device fabrication advances to sub-7 nm nodes, it is critical that advances in CMP can meet future challenges for these advanced CMP processes. A lot of research is being performed in the CMP area. This focus issue is intended to bring high quality research articles to the scientific community.

This virtual issue focuses on papers covering the following topics:  (more…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 240th ECS Meeting symposium on Electrochemical Separations and Sustainability 4.

Electrochemical separations can recover or harvest value products at high purity and efficiency, as well as contribute technologies for environmental management and cleanup. These innovative processes become extremely meaningful when integrated with sustainable resources and renewable energy. The current focus issue intends to address fundamental topics as well as modern applications of electrochemical separation technologies.  

Electrochemical separations have received renewed attention due to growing challenges in energy, environment, and sustainability.  Now the electrochemical separation has been applied in many important areas including gas purification, critical materials recovery, environmental remediation, desalination, and materials recycling. Therefore, it is great timing to have this focus issue to summarize the progress and provide perspective for the future. This topic covers from fundamental electrochemical principles behind separations, to a range of applications.
