Microfluidic Systems for the Skin: Quantitative Sensing of Biomarkers in Sweat – Webinar Q&A with Prof. John A. RogersPosted on June 30, 2021 by Kellie Gilbert
The Electrochemical Society hosted Prof. John A. Rogers’ live online webinar, “Microfluidic Systems for the Skin: Quantitative Sensing of Biomarkers in Sweat,” on June 23, 2021. Below are answers to questions posed during the presentation.
NOTE: Registration is required to view the webinar.
Professor John A. Rogers is the Louis Simpson and Kimberly Querrey Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Neurological Surgery at Northwestern University, with affiliate appointments in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Chemistry. He is also Director of Northwestern’s recently endowed Querrey Simpson Institute for Bioelectronics. Rogers completed an SM in physics and chemistry in 1992, and PhD in physical chemistry in 1995, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was a Junior Fellow in the Harvard University Society of Fellows from 1995 to 1997; worked at Bell Labs from 1997 to 2002; then served on the faculty of the University of Illinois for 13 years. Rogers received many important awards including a MacArthur Fellowship and membership in the National Academies of Engineering, Sciences, Medicine, Inventors, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Rogers has published more than 750 papers, is a co-inventor on more than 100 patents, and co-founded several successful technology companies. (more…)

Be it improving energy density or cycle life or reducing cost, understanding the failure modes of batteries in a non-destructive mode is critical during the design, product development, and manufacturing of lithium ion batteries. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) provides the ability to access and decouple the failure modes based on the processes’ time scale. Analysis of recorded EIS can be done either through phenomenological modelling or equivalent circuit modelling, with each having its own pros and cons.
This webinar reviews the basics of applying EIS for understanding the phenomena in lithium ion batteries, the experimental details and protocols, and the types of models with a few case studies. (more…)

ECS announces the release of Adapting and Advancing, the 2020 Annual Report of The Electrochemical Society.
“The COVID-19 pandemic, with the compounding crises of faltering economies, social unrest, and science denial on an unimaginable scale, changed virtually every aspect of how we live and work,” said Stefan De Gendt, ECS President, 2020-2021. “Casting aside our best laid plans, the Society was forced to adapt and innovate in order to continue to support, convene, and advocate for our science. Together, we achieved our goals and realized the mission.”
