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…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 241st ECS Meeting Nucleation and Growth symposium.

This focus issue aims to capture the latest findings and insights related to phase transformation in electrochemical systems. Contributions for this cross-disciplinary pursuit are sought from researchers with diverse expertise and backgrounds reporting on the latest experimental and computational approaches to understanding nucleation and growth phenomena during electrodeposition and dissolution.

Modern imaging, scattering, and spectroscopy tools along with related methods are enhancing our understanding of phase transformations across a wide range of length scales. In the case of electrodeposition, nucleation and growth play a central role in applications ranging from microelectronics and MEMS to energy conversion and storage systems. This focus issue brings together researchers with diverse expertise and backgrounds to share new experimental and computational approaches to enable progress in the mechanistic understanding of nucleation and growth phenomena. Interest is focused on resolving and explaining the morphological, structural, and compositional evolution of electrode surfaces during electrodeposition. Understanding shape selection, stability criteria, and exploring engineering strategies aimed at specific technological ends are also of interest. (more…)

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue on Emerging Trends in CMP. Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) is a widely accepted global planarization technology that has been deployed by integrated circuit (IC) manufacturers across the globe. It is considered a critical and enabling step in IC manufacturing. A CMP process requires a correct combination of CMP consumables such as slurry, pad, pad conditioner, and cleaning chemistries, along with equipment and end point technology. As device fabrication advances to sub-7 nm nodes, it is critical that advances in CMP can meet future challenges for these advanced CMP processes. A lot of research is being performed in the CMP area. This focus issue is intended to bring high quality research articles to the scientific community.

This virtual issue focuses on papers covering the following topics:  (more…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 240th ECS Meeting symposium on Electrochemical Separations and Sustainability 4.

Electrochemical separations can recover or harvest value products at high purity and efficiency, as well as contribute technologies for environmental management and cleanup. These innovative processes become extremely meaningful when integrated with sustainable resources and renewable energy. The current focus issue intends to address fundamental topics as well as modern applications of electrochemical separation technologies.  

Electrochemical separations have received renewed attention due to growing challenges in energy, environment, and sustainability.  Now the electrochemical separation has been applied in many important areas including gas purification, critical materials recovery, environmental remediation, desalination, and materials recycling. Therefore, it is great timing to have this focus issue to summarize the progress and provide perspective for the future. This topic covers from fundamental electrochemical principles behind separations, to a range of 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.

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue on advanced electrolysis for renewable energy storage. The utilization of renewable energy has substantially driven more attention into electrolysis technologies. As renewable energy emerges and penetrates further into the energy market, the storage of surplus “off peak” electricity has received widespread considerations. An electrolyzer (ELX) can utilize “off peak” electricity from solar or wind farms to produce hydrogen or other fuels (e.g., ammonia, methanol, ethylene). These chemicals can subsequently be operated in a fuel cell mode to generate electricity or used as intermediates for other industrial applications. Compared to conventional batteries, the chemical storage of renewable energy has advantages of high energy density, long duration, and more flexibility. The covered technologies can include water electrolysis, CO2 conversion, NH3 synthesis, or other new electrolysis technologies. (more…)
