Submission Deadline: September 30, 2019

Submit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society Focus Issue on Mathematical Modeling of Electrochemical Systems at Multiple Scales in Honor of Richard Alkire.

About the focus issue

This focus issue of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society is devoted to the mathematical modeling of electrochemical systems across multiple scales. Advances in electrochemical systems will be greatly influenced by the use of advanced simulation tools for the design and control of materials and processes. The figure below illustrates some of the computational methods that have been developed to deal with phenomena at different time and length scales, ranging from atomic to macro, in order to compute properties and model phenomena. This issue is inspired by the work of Professor Richard Alkire from the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, who has been a pioneer in the multiscale modeling of electrochemical systems. In addition, Professor Alkire has led the community in establishing a vision for such work and has trained and influenced countless researchers on this topic over the years. The issue will be dedicated to him in recognition of his contributions to this field. (more…)

ECS’s mission is to advance theory and practice at the forefront of electrochemical and solid state science and technology, and allied subjects by encouraging research, discussion, critical assessment, and dissemination of knowledge in these fields. We couldn’t do this without the help of our sponsors! Their support plays a key role in the advancement of the sciences.

Most recently, the Army Research Office, an element of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory, contributed $5,000 to the 19th Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells & Electrolyzers 19 (PEFC&E-19) symposium taking place at the 236th ECS Meeting. (more…)

Editors’ Choice—Development of Screen-Printed Flexible Multi-Level Microfluidic Devices with Integrated Conductive Nanocomposite Polymer Electrodes on Textiles

Bonnie Gray, a professor at Simon Fraser University’s school of engineering science, was inspired by the city of Vancouver in British Columbia in her latest work.

“Vancouver is well-known for its technical clothing, and I have a lot of friends in the film industry who work in costume design. A combination of these influences and my own engineering background caused me to look further into integrating clothing with technology. That’s how I went on to become involved in developing screen-printed flexible multi-level microfluidic devices on textiles,” said Gray, which led to the fruition of her and lead author Daehan Chung‘s research paper, “Development of Screen-Printed Flexible Multi-Level Microfluidic Devices with Integrated Conductive Nanocomposite Polymer Electrodes on Textiles.”

In their open access paper, published in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society, the pair “present a flexible plastisol-based microfluidic process integrated with conductive nanoparticle composite polymer (C-NCP) electrodes for flexible active microfluidic devices on textile substrates.”

According to Gray, flexible and wearable microfluidic devices are among the newest wearable devices for applications in health monitoring, drug delivery systems, and bio-signal sensing. (more…)

Submit your manuscripts to the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS) Focus Issue on Recent Advances in Wide Bandgap III-Nitride Devices and Solid State Lighting: A Tribute to Isamu Akasaki.

About Isamu Akasaki

Isamu Akasaki has devoted much of his research career to the development and advancement of efficient GaN light-emitting diodes via a metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy growth process. This approach led to the discovery of p-type GaN with magnesium doping and ultimately to the invention of the first GaN p-n junction blue/ultraviolet LED in 1989. Subsequent work by Akasaki’s group led to advances in conductivity control of n-type GaN and related alloys by doping with silicon, allowing for the use of hetero structures and quantum wells in the design and fabrication of even more efficient p-n junction structures and the development of wide bandgap III-Nitride semiconductors for solid state lighting and related technologies. These groundbreaking efforts were recognized in 2014 with the Nobel Prize in Physics. (more…)

AtlantaECS meetings are well known for their strength in areas such as batteries/energy storage, fuel cells/energy conversion, electrochemical engineering, semiconductors, sensors, corrosion, carbon nanostructures, and more.
