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 special collection of papers being presented at the International Conference on Advanced Materials and Mechanical Characterization (ICAMMC-2021). The meeting takes place December 2-4, 2021 in virtual format. 

ICAMMC 2021 covers a wide range of emerging inter- and multi-disciplinary topics in developing advanced materials and their characterization at multiple length scales, manufacturing, and growth of innovative materials. It is an international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, computation, synthesis, fabrication, and characterization of advanced materials in structural, microstructural, small-scale mechanical aspects (not limited to), structure-property correlations, and technological 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 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.

Focus Issue on Semiconductor Wafer Bonding: Science, Technology, and Applications

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue in connection with the Semiconductor Wafer Bonding: Science, Technology, and Applications 16 Symposium that took place during PRiME 2020.

Submissions are open to all authors working in this field, including authors who presented during PRiME 2020.

Wafer bonding as stacking and joining of semiconductor and similar wafers is an important process step in microelectronics, microsystems, and related technologies. It allows the realization of engineered substrates like SOI wafers for modern microelectronics, 3D integration for very high-density electronics, capping and integration of MEMS, silicon based micro fluidics, and thin wafer processing, for example. Wafer bonding processes are typically very complex. The materials of the substrates and bonding layers, the physical understanding of the actual wafer bonding process, and its successful and reproducible execution in product development and production, specialized equipment, characterizations and metrology are all very important. The significance of wafer bonding and the complexity of the related technologies ensures that it is a very interesting field of research and development, which attracts many industry and institutional researchers.
