The ECS Lecture
Hydrogen from Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting – What’s it gonna’ take? was the title of the ECS Lecture given by Dr. John A. Turner, Research Fellow at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. He highlighted novel developments in solar-to-hydrogen efficiencies, challenges and opportunities facing the photoelectrochemical (PEC) community, and PEC solar water splitting systems that could lead to commercial devices. His discussion also focused on metal oxides, surface treatments, and tandem cells for PEC water splitting. Listen to Dr. Turner’s podcast to learn more about PEC water splitting and the future of the energy infrastructure.

Designing the Allen J. Bard Award

Arizona State University's Yixian Wang and the Allen J. Bard Award.

Arizona State University’s Yixian Wang and the Allen J. Bard Award.

The 227th ECS Meeting is in full swing, and today the first ever Allen J. Bard Award was presented to Henry White. While we’ve featured White’s immense contributions to science and Bard’s impact in shaping modern electrochemistry, we’ve yet to talk about the award itself

The Allen J. Bard Award was designed by Arizona State University student Yixian Wang. Under the guidance of Dr. Michael Mirkin—who was part of Bard’s group at the University of Texas at Austin—Wang used a culmination of her scientific and artistic skills to design the Allen J. Bard Award.

The design is based in electrochemistry, featuring a fundamental electrochemical double layer.

Wang is currently completing her PhD in electrochemistry and will be presenting at the poster session during the ECS 227th Meeting.
