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…)

ECS Sensors Plus and ECS Advances

The Electrochemical Society is excited to announce the addition of two new gold open access journals to its family of high-quality publications! 

ECS Sensors Plus

ECS Sensors Plus is a multidisciplinary, open-access journal that provides an international platform to publish high-quality impactful articles, and promote scholarly communication and interactions among scientists, engineers, and technologists whose primary interests are focused on mechanisms, materials, structures, properties, performance, and characterization of sensing and detection devices and systems, including sensor arrays, networks, and actuators. The goal of ECS Sensors Plus, as a one-stop shop journal for sensors, is to advance the fundamental science and understanding of sensors and detection technologies for efficient monitoring and control of industrial processes and the environment, and improving quality of life and human health.

To celebrate and promote the many achievements of women investigating the myriad aspects of electrochemistry, the Journal of The Electrochemical Society is announcing a focus issue on Women in Electrochemistry, to be published in 2022. The Electrochemical Society (ECS) celebrates the achievements of women researchers from all over the world with the aim of reducing gender inequality in STEM.

The issue is open to research papers and communications reporting new research results, methods papers discussing analytical techniques and standards, review papers looking at the history and development of specific fields, and perspectives on the future of certain areas of research. Showcasing the outstanding work of a growing list of eminent and talented female scientists, it pulls together the entire scope of topical interest areas covered by the Journal of The Electrochemical Society. In addition, the issue will be edited by 50 top female scientists from around the world, with their direct input on the peer-review of each submission.

The sole requirement for submission is that a female researcher is the primary author or co-author responsible for the study reported or opinions expressed. Male co-authors are welcome, as the issue aims to celebrate the diversity of our community, in addition to the important advances being made by women in the sciences. (more…)

Volume two of this focus issue is a collection of papers accepted to the 2020 International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS) which was postponed. Although IMCS takes place every two years, the postponed 2020 meeting is scheduled (in a digital format) for May 30-June 3, 2021. IMCS was founded in Fukuoka, Japan, in 1983. Today it is the largest and most-renowned conference in the scientific area of chemical sensors. IMCS meetings provide an excellent opportunity to network with leaders in the field and with companies commercializing chemical sensors for environmental, medical, healthcare, industry, and food safety applications. Papers are being accepted covering topics related to the planned IMCS symposia, which include: (more…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society invites submissions for a 2022 Focus Issue centered on energy storage research in China. Under the Paris Agreement, China committed to peak its CO2 emissions and to supply 20 percent of its energy demand using non-fossil sources by 2030. Energy storage technologies are required in order to promote renewable energy sources utilization and economic performance. China’s energy storage research develops rapidly, especially in the field of “beyond lithium-ion” technologies. This focus issue aims to present transformational advances in scalable energy storage to go beyond the current state of the art lithium-ion batteries. (more…)

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue dedicated to the memory of Professor George Blasse: Recent Developments in Theory, Materials, and Applications of Luminescence. On December 30, 2020, Prof. Blasse passed away unexpectedly at the age of 86, in Munich, Germany, where he lived since his retirement in 1996. Prof. Blasse was highly recognized internationally and shaped the field of luminescent materials research. He combined groundbreaking fundamental discoveries with societal relevance including the discovery of the phosphor that enabled white light LEDs. He had a deep and also intuitive understanding of luminescence phenomena, and often relied on clever chemical variations in host composition and structure to obtain insight into the underlying physics of luminescence and energy transfer phenomena of ions in solids.
