Li-Ion Batteries

A03 Battery Division / ECSJ The Year 2016 is the 25th silver anniversary of the birth of the modern day Li-ion battery (LIB). Sony Corporation essentially ushered in the portable consumer electronics age in 1991 selling the very first rechargeable LIB; a cylindrical cell design with about 1 Ah of storage capacity. Twenty five years later, a typical ‘18650’ cell now provides nominally 3.4 Ah of energy; and in this format bundled in x thousands of said individual cells can power an electric vehicle for 300 miles on a single charge while providing dizzying acceleration and performance. Certainly we are at the precipice of complete launch to new heights in LIB in the next twenty-five years and beyond. In perspective, in the science and engineering technical field, over 3000 LIB-topical papers are published every year (circa partial 2015) in peer-reviewed publications, and the trend (taken over 25 years) essentially follows an exponential function. Therefore, we undoubtedly conclude that the so-called ‘simple’ process of moving or ‘intercalating’ lithium cations into and out of host electrode crystal lattices indeed is feasible, reversible and reliable, and is capable of achieving over thousands of charge-discharge cycles with at least >95% energy efficiency. The technology has withstood the test of time, and truly is a remarkable electrochemical process feat. In this special ‘all-encompassing’ Li-ion battery symposia to be held during the full week (Sun. to Fri.), the organizers solicit papers in the area of LIB that are not specifically called-for in other Battery Division symposia (such as electrolytes, characterization (Ogumi symposium), and failure analysis). For example ‘Li-ion Batteries’ will principally cover subject areas of anodes, cathodes, testing, modeling, synthesis, system measurements and engineering, structures, mechanisms, and the application of nanotechnology to LIB. Certainly such a large breadth of subject matter for this symposium will necessitate the organizers to carefully rank submissions for elevated oral status, and thus we are stressing only submission of high-quality, top-notch competitive papers. Papers deemed insufficient will be placed either directly in the General Poster session Symposia, or invited by the organizers to be submitted as an oral talk in the General Battery/Energy Technology parallel session Symposium. A commitment from authors to publish some short aspect of their presented work in ECS Transactions is highly encouraged. A “standard” issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors accepted for presentation are encouraged to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than October 16, 2016.

Atomic Layer Deposition Applications 12 Dielectric Science and Technology Division / Electronics and Photonics Division

Continued progress in nanotechnology and nanomanufacturing requires precise, conformal coatings of thin film materials. Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) enables the deposition of ultra-thin, highly conformal coatings over complex, 3D topographies with precise control over both thickness and composition. Consequently, ALD has become the technology of choice for a large variety of applications beyond microelectronics. Over the last eleven years, this symposium has earned a leading position among the meetings where ALD is discussed. This symposium offers an excellent forum for sharing cutting edge research on both existing and emerging ALD applications, as well as fundamental aspects of ALD technology. Contributions are solicited in the following areas: (1.) semiconductor CMOS applications: development and integration of ALD high-k oxides and metal electrodes with conventional and high-mobility channel materials; (2.) volatile and non-volatile memory applications: extendibility, Flash, MIM, MIS, RF capacitors, etc.; (3.) interconnects and contacts: integration of ALD films with Cu and low-k materials; (4.) fundamentals of ALD processing: reaction mechanisms, in-situ measurement, modeling, theory; 5.) new precursors and delivery systems; (6.) optical and photonic applications; (7.) coating of nanoporous materials by ALD; (8.)

Processing Materials of 3D Interconnects, Damascene and Electronics Packaging 8 Electronics and Photonics Division / Dielectric Science and Technology Division / Electrodeposition Division / ECSJ

This symposium focuses on issues pertinent to advances in traditional damascene interconnects and new materials and integration methods for 3D interconnects. An emerging technology or device architecture called 3D integration is based on the system performance gains that can be achieved by stacking and vertically interconnecting distinct device layers. The 3D concept of replacing long 2D interconnects with shorter vertical (3D) interconnects has; the potential to alleviate the well-known interconnect (RC) delay problem facing the semiconductor industry today. Additional benefits of the 3D process include reduced die size and the ability to optimize distinct technologies (analog, logic, RF, etc.) on separate vertically interconnected 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 highly demanded in this area. Special interests are shape evolution and additive chemistry of high-aspect ratio, mathematical modelling of deposition. Ideally, this symposium will bring together researchers to discuss the various merits of the presented 3D device architectures, materials, packaging, and fabrication methodologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: (1) 3D process integration methodologies; (2) 3D design and architectures; (3) simulation and modeling of 3D integrated devices; (4) materials and techniques for die and wafer bonding; (5) processing and handling of thin wafers and dice; (6) materials for temporary die and wafer bonding; (7) vertical interconnect fabrication technology; (8) materials for vertical; interconnects: insulators, barriers, and metals; (9) reliability of 3D interconnects; (10) novel test and measurement of 3D integrated devices; (11) thermal management in 3D integrated devices damascene copper interconnects, introduced at the 0.25 μm node, have spanned six technology nodes, and are expected to be used for the foreseeable future; (12) advanced substrates and packaging, system in packaging (SIP), high speed and optical packaging, wireless and micro CSP; (13) chip interconnect metallization, damascene plating, copper, copper-alloys, silver, etc., seed/ barrier layers, sputter seeding, metal migration and planarization and (14) chip-package interconnection flip-chip (C4) technology, Pb-free C4s, wire bonding, TAB, compliant chip-package interconnection and room temperature joint. This symposium topic will bring together researchers to discuss; the challenges and solutions to extending damascene copper; interconnects, well beyond the 32 nm node.
