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:
