Submission Deadline EXTENDED: February 12, 2020 March 15, 2020

Submit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society‘s Focus Issue on Battery Safety, Reliability, and Mitigation.

About the focus issue

This Journal of The Electrochemical Society focus issue addresses the fundamental risks and issues associated with battery safety and reliability. Industry challenges with fielding safe and reliable batteries are increasing as new cell designs are introduced into advanced energy storage applications requiring higher specific energies, fast charging, and lower cost alternatives. As such, improvements in cell and battery safety design without compromising performance continues to be a major focus for researchers, manufacturers and users across all sectors of the energy storage marketplace. Better understanding of battery failure mechanisms will further enable regulatory agency approval and public acceptance of early deployment of advanced battery energy storage systems for high reliability applications.

Submit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society‘s Focus Issue on Challenges in Novel Electrolytes, Organic Materials, and Innovative Chemistries for Batteries in Honor of Michel Armand.

About the focus issue

This focus issue of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society is devoted to the novel electrolytes, organic materials, and innovative chemistries for batteries. This issue is inspired by the work of Michel Armand, Emeritus Researcher at French CNRS, and presently working at CIC-Energigune in Spain and at Deakin University in Australia. Armand, after ushering the intercalation concept, has led the community with outstanding and inspiring contributions to the field of battery electrochemistry with major industrial applications. Armand’s most important renown findings are solid state polymer electrolytes for Li Metal Polymer batteries now commercialized, new highly conductive salt families like LiTFSI (commercialized) and LiFSI for advanced electrolytes, and carbon-nanopainting of LiFePO4 leading to wide-scale commercialization of this olivine in EV and grid storage batteries.

Submit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society Focus Issue on Heterogeneous Functional Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage.

About the focus issue

This special issue focuses on Heterogeneous Functional Materials (HeteroFoaMs), which 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 special issue will be to provide a forum to discuss 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.

Submit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society Focus Issue on Mathematical Modeling of Electrochemical Systems at Multiple Scales in Honor of Richard Alkire.

About the focus issue

This focus issue of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society is devoted to the mathematical modeling of electrochemical systems across multiple scales. Advances in electrochemical systems will be greatly influenced by the use of advanced simulation tools for the design and control of materials and processes. The figure below illustrates some of the computational methods that have been developed to deal with phenomena at different time and length scales, ranging from atomic to macro, in order to compute properties and model phenomena. This issue is inspired by the work of Professor Richard Alkire from the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, who has been a pioneer in the multiscale modeling of electrochemical systems. In addition, Professor Alkire has led the community in establishing a vision for such work and has trained and influenced countless researchers on this topic over the years. The issue will be dedicated to him in recognition of his contributions to this field. (more…)
