Symposium A07: Solid State Batteries

Symposium focus: Batteries employing solid-electrolytes have the potential to significantly improve the safety and performance electrochemical energy storage, by replacing the flammable liquid electrolytes currently employed in Li-ion batteries. In recent years, there has been an explosion of research into new solid electrolyte chemistries, including ceramics, polymers, and composites. However, there are several critical challenges that remain, including interfacial compatibility with electrodes, coupled chemical-electrochemical-mechanical phenomena at solid-solid interfaces, degradation under high power densities, and manufacturing. This symposium takes an interdisciplinary look at the challenges and opportunities facing solid-state battery systems, including materials processing, characterization, and device performance.

Symposium G01: 16th International Symposium on Semiconductor Cleaning Science and Technology (SCST 16)

Symposium focus: With the very first meeting held in Hollywood, FL, in 1989 the SCST Symposium is among the longest running meetings organized under the auspices of ECS. The focus of this symposium is on the science and technology of surface cleaning and conditioning in semiconductor device manufacturing. The symposium covers a wide range of topics related to the surface processing of elemental semiconductors Si(SOI) and Ge and compound semiconductors such as SiC, SiGe, III-V, and II-VI materials as well as non-semiconductor surfaces including sapphire, glass, ITO, and flexible plastic substrates. Topics of interest include contaminants removal, broadly understood surface conditioning processes, cleaning media, including non-aqueous cleaning methods, and cleaning tools. More detailed description of the topics remining within the scope of the Semiconductor Cleaning Science and Technology Symposium can be found in the symposium’s Call for Papers. (more…)

Topic Close-up #6

Symposium G06: Materials and Processes for Semiconductor, 2.5 and 3D Chip Packaging, and  Interconnection PCB 2

Symposium focus: This symposium focuses on issues pertinent to advances in semiconductor interconnects beyond the 20 nm technology node as well as novel materials and integration methods for 2.5D and 3D interconnects. Damascene interconnects using copper or cobalt, introduced at the 10-20 nm node, are expected to be used for the foreseeable future. The 2.5D or 3D concept replaces long 2D interconnects with shorter vertical interconnects, which have the potential to alleviate the interconnect delay. Since electrochemical processes are the ultimate solution to create smaller size and lower cost devices, both practical and fundamental aspects of electrochemical processes are of high interest. This symposium will bring researchers together to discuss various aspects of device design and architecture, novel materials, chemical formulation, packaging approaches, and nano-scale fabrication methodologies.
