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 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 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…)

During his ECS Masters Interview at the 2016 ECS PRiME Meeting, John Goodenough vulnerably disclosed that as a child, he had dyslexia and could not read like others his age. He described leaving home at the age of 12 for an affluent boarding school as a struggling scholarship student. Stories were shared about life events that led John on the path of science and discovery, as well as the individuals who supported and guided him along the way. And when asked about the dissemination of scientific content, John imparted his belief that scholarly societies are essentially in the business of fostering partnerships to serve the community at large. He emphasized the role of societies in creating space to convene the community to further scientific advancement.

The editorial teams of the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology and Journal of The Electrochemical Society have come together in the spirit of this belief. They are publishing a focus issue comprised of 80+ select invited papers celebrating and honoring the life, legacy, and contributions of beloved professor and longtime ECS member Dr. John B. Goodenough.

The full issue is scheduled to be available in May 2022—just two months before John’s 100th birthday.

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue on molecular electronics. It also includes selected papers from the 10th International Conference on Molecular Electronics held from November 29–December 2, 2021, in Lyon, France. The first International Conference on Molecular Electronics (ElecMol) was organized in 2004. Three successful conferences in 2004, 2005, and 2006 led to scheduling this event biennially. Molecular electronics is a widely interdisciplinary field at the frontiers of chemistry, physics, biology, electronics, and their many interfaces. The design and use of electronic components and devices at the nanometer scale stands as a major challenge for the near future.

This virtual issue focuses on papers covering the following topics: 

  • Single Molecule Junctions: Memories and Switches
  • Large Area Junctions: Memories and Switches
  • Organic Electronics and Spintronics: Molecules and Devices
  • Organic Optoelectronics and Photonics: Molecules and Devices
  • 2D Systems, Nanotubes, Nanowires, Nanosheets
  • Self-Assembly and Supramolecular Architectures
  • Scanning Probe Microscopies and Near Field Approaches
  • Carrier Transport and Device Theoretical Simulation and Modelling

Reviews, critical reviews, and perspective papers are welcomed. (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.
