Focus Issue on Advanced Energy, Electronic and Dielectric Materials: Fabrication, Characterization, Properties, and ApplicationsPosted on September 16, 2021 by Beth Schademann
Call for Papers
The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a special collection of papers being presented at the International Conference on Advanced Materials and Mechanical Characterization (ICAMMC-2021). The meeting takes place December 2-4, 2021 in virtual format.
ICAMMC 2021 covers a wide range of emerging inter- and multi-disciplinary topics in developing advanced materials and their characterization at multiple length scales, manufacturing, and growth of innovative materials. It is an international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, computation, synthesis, fabrication, and characterization of advanced materials in structural, microstructural, small-scale mechanical aspects (not limited to), structure-property correlations, and technological applications. It is a common platform to present and discuss path-breaking research ideas and is expected to be an interface between academia and industry for societal needs. This focus issue centers on the advancements in design/fabrication, characterization and properties of next-generation materials for energy, electronic and dielectric applications. (more…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue dedicated to the late Professor Nongjian Tao for his longstanding contribution to the development of chem/biosensors and nanoscale measurements. This issue also serves as a celebration of the 70th birthday of Professor Stuart Lindsay, Professor Tao’s doctoral advisor and longtime collaborator for over 35 years.
Contributions are invited in all aspects of chem/biosensor technology with topics that include, but are not limited to: Electric, magnetic, and optical biosensors; novel transduction modes; molecular recognition elements; nanomaterials and their system level integration for biological/medical applications such as point-of-care, implantable, and wearable sensors. In addition, novel nanoscale measurements of cells and cellular/molecular components (e.g., nucleic acid, proteins, organic molecules), including scanning probe microscopy, plasmonic, and optical imaging of biomolecules, are also highly encouraged. Many of these measurements lead to improved understanding of transduction mechanisms and novel biosensor platforms that allow for ultrasensitive and dynamic detection in living systems. (more…)
