According to the Federal Aviation Administration, nearly 7,000 laser strikes on aircrafts were reported in 2017.
“In cities like Chicago this problem is real as people are shining laser pointers on aircrafts during critical phases of flight, which is a big nuisance to pilots,” said Jason Keleher, a professor and chair of chemistry at Lewis University, who was approached by the aviation department at Lewis University to collaborate on a solution to this growing problem .
“Is it a bunch of kids? Is it accidental? Is somebody just like, ‘I bet you can’t hit that plane with those lasers.’ It’s really hard to identify who’s actually doing it. It’s a very interesting problem,” said Keleher, one he, the project’s principal investigator, was prepared to solve.
Keleher explains that although the lasers don’t cause permanent eye damage to pilots as they maneuver the aircraft, it does cause temporary flash blindness which may make it difficult for pilots to see control systems as they prepare for take-off and landing. He explains it is similar to the way high beams can disorient a driver upon direct exposure.
The 235th ECS Meeting in Dallas, TX will feature six professional development workshops, providing attendees critical opportunities to develop and further their professional careers. These workshops are available to you whether you are a student looking for some help with your resume or a mid-career researcher looking for a refresher on team management. Don’t miss out!
Attendees can register by adding the session to your registration. Login to your ECS profile to add one today. For questions or assistance registering, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Open data is the only way to move the world forward, learning from give and take to find new ways to connect the dots and have new insights, that is what electrochemistry has done already for hundreds of years.”
Koen is a professor of oncology at Ghent University in Belgium and chairs the scientific committee of the European Cancer Prevention Organization. He is also the founding CEO of HealthSkouts and partner at HealthStartup.eu, a social network of novel health start-ups.
Early registration ends April 22, 2019.
ECS short courses will be offered on Sunday, May 26, 2019.
These small classes, taught by industry and academic leaders, are an excellent opportunity to receive personalized instruction, helping both novices and experts advance their technical expertise and knowledge. (more…)
ECS Meeting Abstracts contain extended abstracts of the technical papers presented at the ECS biannual meetings, ECS joint meetings, and ECS-sponsored meetings. This publication offers a first look into the current research in the field. ECS Meeting Abstracts are freely available to all visitors of the ECS Digital Library. Learn more about our other open access publishing opportunities here!
Did you know? All ECS Transactions, Journal of The Electrochemical Society, and ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology articles that develop out of ECS Meeting Abstracts are linked back to their original abstracts in the digital library.
Don’t forget to join us in Dallas! The deadline for early registration and discounted hotel rooms at the Sheraton is April 22. Make sure to register for the meeting and book your hotel rooms as soon as possible!

Symposium A03: Large Scale Energy Storage 10
Symposium Focus: The symposium is sponsored by Sumitomo Electric of Japan and supported by three divisions in the ECS, IEEE, ETD, and Battery. Funds from these sponsors are used to invite major industrial developers of large scale energy storage systems from the US and Asia and established speakers from the academia, national labs, and DOE Office of Electricity. The main focus of this symposium is on technical issues at the industrial scale and new directions for Large Scale Electrical Energy Storage. (more…)

Symposium B07: Light Energy Conversion with Metal Halide Perovskites, Semiconductor Nanostructures, and Inorganic/Organic Hybrid Materials
Symposium Focus: Metal, semiconductor, and organic nanoparticles and nanostructures play important roles in fuel cells, solar energy conversion, catalysis, and hydrogen production. Recent advances in the area of inorganic/organic hybrid nanostructures, in particular metal halide perovskites, and nanomaterials have led to new understanding of their catalytic, photoelectrochemical, and photovoltaic properties. This symposium especially encourages and welcomes contributed presentations.
Session chairs serve as an integral role in the ECS meetings. We try our best to encourage early career risers, post-grads, and young authors to get involved in the meetings by acting as session chairs. Although this is a volunteer-based program, it is a great networking opportunity, as it puts you in front of other scientists, engineers, and researchers sharing their work.
