Topic Close-up #11

Symposium E04: Electrodeposition of Reactive Metals and Alloys for Energy Storage

Symposium purpose is to bring together experts from the fields of electrodeposition and energy storage to discuss and learn about the science and technological issues in this fascinating topic which we share. Electrodeposition or plating of reactive compounds is common place in energy storage applications such as metal-air, lithium metal and next generation sodium, magnesium or calcium battery concepts. On the other hand, high quality coatings of reactive metals and alloys such as aluminum, magnesium, vanadium and zinc find applications in anti-corrosion coatings, microelectronics, fuel cells, electrolyzers, supercapacitors and sensors. We welcome all abstracts about novel deposition processes, electrolytes and additives, insights in kinetics, nucleation and growth phenomena, as well as on advanced applications in this field.

Confirmed Invited Speakers include Dr. Fanny Barde of Toyota Motor Europe, Dr. Debra R. Rolison of NRL, Prof. Craig B. Arnold from Princeton University, Prof. Takayuki Homma from Waseda University and Snehashis Choudhury, young investigator at Cornell University (group of prof. Lynden Archer).

Symposium G01: Semiconductor Wafer Bonding: Science, Technology, and Applications 15

Symposium Focus: The fifteenth symposium solicits original theoretical and experimental papers that document new developments and cover the full range of basic science, process technologies, and product applications of semiconductor wafer bonding (direct, anodic, thermo-compression, eutectic, adhesive bonding). Besides permanent bonding, temporary wafer bonding technique deserves also to be discussed regarding all the recent development in many 3D applications. Fundamental aspects of interest include surface preparations for bonding, film transferring, low temperature bonding, surface activation at bonding interfaces, bonding techniques, novel material composites to synthesize heterostructures. Presentations characterizing currently utilized materials and processes, as well as novel approaches to new materials systems and modeling and process simulations are encouraged. Practical aspects of interest include innovative developments in product architecture and new integration and processing schemes for microelectronics, photonics, MEMS, microtechnologies, nanotechnologies and other relevant applications.

Invited Speakers from CEA-Leti, imec, EVG, KTH, Qromis, and more will be featured during the symposium.

Symposium G05: Materials, Formulation, and Processes for Semiconductor, 2.5 and 3D Chip Packaging, and High Density Interconnection PCB

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. An emerging technology or device architecture called 2.5D and 3D integration is based on the system performance gains that is achieved by chip stacking and vertically interconnecting distinct device layers. 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 demand. Ideally, this symposium will bring researchers together to discuss various aspects of device architecture, novel materials, chemical formulation, packaging approaches and nano-scale fabrication methodologies.
