The ECS Board of Directors chartered a new ECS section on October 16, 2020. With the addition of the ECS Pacific Northwest Section, the Society now hosts over 24  region-specific sections providing opportunities for regional scientists and engineers to connect with researchers and participate in various events. Jie Xiao, ECS Battery Division Secretary, took the lead in chartering the section and now serves as its chair.

The ECS Pacific Northwest Section seeks to connect all interested parties from academia, industry, and government, and bridge a scientific gap while providing networking opportunities that could lead to new developments—and help members advance their careers. The section serves all of the universities and national labs in Washington State, Idaho, and Oregon. Xiao believes the section will bolster the growth of the electrochemistry and solid state science fields in the Pacific Northwest. (more…)

Topic Close-up #1

Symposium M03 – Electrochemical and Metal Oxide Sensors

Deadline for Submitting Abstracts: December 4, 2020

Submit today!

Symposium focus: The development of electrochemical (based on ionic conduction—potentiometric, amperometric, and mixed potential) and metal oxide (based on electronic conduction—conductometric) gas sensors has a long history, and their optimization and miniaturization is a source of continued research. The major focus is to improve selectivity, stability, and reproducibility of the sensor response, in addition to novel methods for synthesis of metal oxide nano-hetero-structures with unique properties and novel sensing mechanisms, and the characterization of the arrays of metal oxide sensors. All relevant topics on gas sensors and biosensors based on electrochemical principles including amperometric, potentiometric, mixed potential, and conductometric devices for both room temperature and high temperature gas sensing are welcome. Please check out the call for papers for more details. (more…)

Akira Yoshino

M. Stanley Whittingham

A highlight of The Electrochemical Society’s record-breaking PRiME 2020 digital meeting was the live session honoring M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino, long term ECS members and 2019 Nobel Chemistry Laureates. That same day—October 7, 2020—the Royal Swedish Academy of Science announced that Emmanuelle Charpentier (Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens, Berlin, Germany) and Jennifer A. Doudna (University of California, Berkeley, US) received the 2020 Nobel Chemistry Prize “for the development of a method for genome editing.” (more…)
