The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the Multiscale Modeling, Simulation, and Design 5: In Honor of Ralph E. White symposium at the 243rd ECS Meeting.

This focus issue is in honor of Professor Ralph E. White on the occasion of his 80th birthday. Professor White made significant contributions to the field of modeling and simulation of electrochemical systems—including capacity fade prediction of lithium-ion batteries, efficient algorithms for battery models, and models for chlor alkali industries. Dr. White has received several international awards, including the 2013 ECS Olin Palladium Award for contributions to the science of electrochemistry, 2016 ECS Vittorio de Nora Award for contributions to the field of electrochemical engineering and technology, and 2018 Henry B. Linford Award for distinguished teaching. As a department chair and Dean at the University of South Carolina, he was instrumental in training the next generation of students, researchers, and colleagues who have gone on to make significant contributions in academia and industry.

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a collection of papers on perovskite solar photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical cells.

To achieve carbon neutrality, perovskite solar photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical cells are promising technologies to catalyze the growth of solar energy deployment. As the power conversion efficiency of the laboratory-scale single-junction photovoltaic cell surpassed 25 percent, it attracted huge interest from the solar industry. Additionally, perovskites have recently emerged as promising next-generation photoelectrochemical photoelectrode materials. However, major challenges remain to be overcome before the industrialization of these promising solar technologies. The technical contents covered in this focus issue should provide important electrochemical and photophysical insights for the development of commercial perovskite photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical devices and systems.

Professor Baldassare (Rino) Di BartoloCall for Papers

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a collection of papers dedicated to the contributions to the field of luminescence by Professor Baldassare (Rino) Di Bartolo.

Professor Di Bartolo recently retired after 50 years with the Department of Physics at Boston College. He was a dedicated teacher, prolific researcher, author of six books, and editor of over 25 volumes. His Optical Interactions in Solids remains a standard reference text in the field of luminescence. He is perhaps best known as the Director of the School of Atomic and Molecular Spectroscopy at the Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture in Erice, Sicily, where he organized 23 summer schools and 11 workshops. The success of these meetings was due to Professor Di Bartolo’s ability to attract top researchers in the field, as well as his warmth, generosity, didactic teaching style, and desire to bring people together to enrich their lives and advance science. His legacy in luminescence continues through the graduate students and researchers trained in his laboratory and Erice schools and workshops.

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a collection of papers on sustainable materials and devices.

Advanced materials are pervasive in sustainable energy storage devices, sensors, and actuators. These devices consist of multiple materials combined at multiple scales (from nano to submicrons) 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 focus issue is to provide a place to publish the science that controls the properties in emerging energy storage materials, and sensors as a foundation for design of sustainable development for the next generation. This virtual issue focuses on papers covering the following topics:

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the Frontiers of Chemical/Molecular Engineering in Electrochemical Energy Technologies 2 symposium being held in honor of Professor Robert Savinell’s 70th Birthday at the 242nd ECS Meeting. 

The focus issue deals and the connected symposium address current and emerging ideas in electrocatalysis, electrolytes, and device design for fuel cells and flow batteries. Topics include molecular-level understanding of small-molecule electrocatalysis (including hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon- and nitrogen-containing molecules such as alcohols, ammonia, urea, carbon dioxide, and others); membranes and electrolytes including additives, nanoparticles, and deep eutectic chemistries; redox-active molecules; and new concepts in fuel cells and flow batteries. Contributions from both theory and experiment are welcome. Studies that connect molecular-level understanding to macroscopic electrochemical technologies are of particular interest. (more…)

Gerald FrankelThe Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 242nd ECS Meeting symposium, Critical Factors in Localized Corrosion 10: In Honor of Gerald Frankel.

The focus issue deals with all aspects of localized corrosion with the purpose of summarizing recent advances in fundamental and applied aspects of passivity breakdown, techniques to study initiation and propagation of localized corrosion, the effect of microstructure, advanced materials, as well as mitigation methods for localized corrosion. Papers presenting experimental and theoretical approaches to understanding localized corrosion are welcome. The issue is open to all interested authors who may submit review, critical review, perspective, methods, communication, and original research articles.

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a collection of papers on Complex Multi-Metal Carbides.

Transition metal carbides are experiencing a resurgence in recent years due to their interesting properties and applications including catalysis, energy storage, and mechanical properties. However, moving beyond simple single-metal carbides can be quite challenging synthetically. Over the last 10 years, complex multi-metal carbides have seen a significant increase in research funding and publications. These complex metal carbides have a range of compositions, crystal structures, and phases, including solid solutions, true ternary compounds, MAX phases and related MXenes, and high entropy alloys. Most publications focus on the properties of these materials, leaving the synthesis details to the experimental section—and less explained and understood. This focus issue helps researchers understand the complexities involved in synthesizing these materials and how the properties can be tuned through synthetic manipulation. (more…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 241st ECS Meeting symposium, Heterogeneous Functional Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage 3.

Heterogeneous functional materials (HeteroFoaMs) 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 focus issue is to provide a place to publish 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.

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 241st ECS Meeting Carbon Nanostructures and Devices symposia.

The ECS Nanocarbon Division offers eight to 10 symposia covering different aspects of nanocarbon research in the Society’s spring meeting and a general nanocarbon symposium in the fall meeting. About 15-20 percent of the presented papers in the spring meeting are from symposia offered by the nanocarbon division. Researchers across the globe participate in these meetings.

This focus issue is intended to encourage the up-and-coming younger generation of scientists working on nanocarbons to participate in ECS Nanocarbon Division activities and publish their work in Society journals. This intended high-impact issue will provide up-to-date information on all areas of nanocarbon research. (more…)
