Beyond Lithium-Ion Batteries

Division, Energy Technology Division, A05 Battery Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division Lithium ion batteries are the current state-of-the-art rechargeable battery, and therefore are used to power virtually all portable electronics, powertools, and plug-in hybrid and full electric vehicles. Nevertheless, the demands for higher energy and power capability in these applications, particularly for electric vehicles, continue to fuel research in other battery chemistries that possess high theoretical specific and volumetric energy densities. Another important goal is the development of new chemistries that provide cost-effective, highly cyclable stationary energy storage for grid-scale and distributed renewable energy sources. This symposium welcomes presentations on new concepts, materials, and designs to advance these ‘beyond Li-ion’ chemistries, including lithium-air, lithium-sulfur, new flow batteries, sodium and magnesium chemistries. The topics include, but are not limited to, materials synthesis, electrode processing, safety issues, modeling and simulation, testing and evaluation, characterization and diagnosis. Topics on electrolytes specifically for Beyond Li-ion chemistries are welcomed here instead of the ‘Electrolytes and Interfaces’ symposium. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors are strongly encouraged to submit a full text preprint, slides, or other presentation-related materials to the new preprint server, ECSarXiv (http://www.electrochem.org/ecsarxiv/).

A06

Electrolytes and Interfaces in Lithium Ion Batteries Battery Division

The organizers would like to invite contributions that provide better understanding of the mechanism of electronic and ionic transport phenomena across electrode-electrolyte interfaces and solid-state interphases in lithium-ion batteries. The underlying principles that govern these phenomena is inextricably linked to our ability to sense and monitor electrode surface processes in situ, in real time, and with adequate spatial and temporal resolution. A better understanding of the elementary processes involved in the formation of the electrolyte/electrode interface and charge transfer kinetics in relation to solvent, salt, additive and electrode material is crucial to the further optimization of Li ion batteries. This symposium will focus on both the fundamental and applied aspects of the electrolyte and interfaces for Li and Li-ion batteries.. Papers that leverage advances in experimental and theoretical modeling approaches to characterize and describe the mechanism of electrolytes or interfacial phenomena and their impact on the electrochemical performance of the materials, composite electrodes, and energy storage systems are welcome. Electrolyte and interface studies that primarily concern other 6

cell chemistries including Li/O2, Li/S, and Mg ion are directed towards the Beyond Lithium Ion Symposium. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors are strongly encouraged to submit a full text preprint, slides, or other presentation-related materials to the new preprint server, ECSarXiv (http://www.electrochem.org/ecsarxiv/).

Battery Safety and Failure Modes Battery Division, Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division

The severity of an energetic battery safety incident has the potential to make high specific energy battery chemistries an at-risk technology for some applications. As such, improvements in cell and battery safety design without compromising performance continues to be a major focus for researchers, manufacturers and users across all sectors of the energy storage marketplace. Better understanding of battery failure mechanisms will further enable regulatory agency approval and public acceptance of early deployment of advanced battery energy storage systems for high reliability applications. The goal of this symposium is to address battery safety from the perspective of materials and cell level design improvements which reduce the severity of an energetic safety incident. Specific topics and areas to be discussed in this symposium include but are not limited to (1) improvements in safety design from materials engineering; (2) advancements in electrode architecture design; (3) cell designs that enhance safety features; (4) safety of large-size cells; (5) novel cell structures that provide inherent safety; (6) advanced system and cell diagnostic and prognostic protocols and tools to alleviate or prevent battery safety incidents; (7) analyses that can improve understanding of battery failure mechanisms and hazards; and (8) other safety features that are not covered by the above or in other symposia. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors are strongly encouraged to submit a full text preprint, slides, or other presentation-related materials to the new preprint server, ECSarXiv (http://www.electrochem.org/ecsarxiv/).

Photovoltaics for the 21st Century 14

Technology Division, Dielectric Science and D02 Energy Technology Division, Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division

This symposium provides a forum for solar-to-electrical conversion technologies which are terawatt-capable, i.e. they can reach a scale comparable to the global energy demand and have the potential to become an impactful source of energy in the 21st century. In addition to lowering the cost and improving the efficiency, major barriers to terawatt solar photovoltaics include availability of natural resources such as raw materials and electricity, recycling of end-of-life solar modules and cells, innovative approaches for solar electricity storage and transport, innovative applications for the less predictable solar electricity, among others. Electrochemical and solid-state sciences have major roles to play in removing many of these barriers to terawatt solar photovoltaics. This symposium invites contributions in both current and emerging areas of solar photovoltaic research and covers a whole spectrum of cell technologies from 1st generation wafer-Si to 2nd thin-films to 3rd generation. Sample topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 1. Applications of electrochemistry in cell fabrication for lower cost and/or higher efficiency; 2. Emerging perovskite and Earth-abundant solar materials: their synthesis and properties; 3. Scalable and green solution-based processing technologies for cell fabrication; 4. Cost-effective approaches to recycle current and future solar cells and modules; 5. Sustainable practices in solar cell and module fabrication such as waste treatment; 6. Innovative applications which match the characteristics of solar electricity without storage. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium.

Processing Materials and Integration of Damascene and 3D Interconnects 9 Dielectric Science and Technology Division, Electrodeposition Division, Electronics and Photonics Division

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. An application area where large performance gains can be obtained is high-density device/sensor arrays where processing power is placed within each individual device. 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. Despite the history of success, there are several new challenges including: increases in effective resistivity, electromigration and stress migration resistance, and the integration of porous low-k dielectrics and air-gaps. This symposium topic will bring together researchers to discuss the challenges and solutions to extend damascene copper interconnects well beyond the 45 nm node. The aim of this symposium is to discuss the proposed architectures and applications of 3D integration, and the various enabling materials and processes that are required to bring the technology into full commercialization. Broadly, the enabling process technologies include: wafer/die thinning, wafer/die bonding, and vertical interconnect fabrication. Each of these process technologies will leverage novel materials, and much of the emphasis of this symposium will be on the materials science of these 3D integration materials. Ideally, this symposium will bring together researchers to discuss the various merits of the presented 3D device architectures, materials, and fabrication methodologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: (1.) methods to reduce increases in effective resistivity; (2.) methods to mitigate electromigration and stress migration issues; (3.) advanced barrier /seed processes including ALD and electroless films; (4.) porous low-k ILDs and air gap processing (including deposition and etching); and (5.) novel electrodeposition and CMP processes. (5.) 3D process integration methodologies; (6.) 3D design and architectures; (7.) simulation and modeling of 3D integrated devices; (8.) materials and techniques for die and wafer bonding; (9.) processing and handling of thin wafers and dice; (10.) materials for temporary die and wafer bonding; (11.) vertical interconnect fabrication technology; (12.) materials for vertical interconnects: insulators, barriers, and metals; (13.) reliability of 3D interconnects; (14.) novel test and measurement of 3D integrated devices; (15.) thermal management in 3D integrated devices; (16.) epitaxial and recrystallization approaches to 3D integration; and (17 ) 3D integration of heterogeneous materials, (18) thermomechanical reliability and electromigration in 3D integrated devices. An “enhanced” edition of ECS Transactions is planned to be available at the meeting. All authors accepted for presentation are strongly encouraged to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than June 29, 2018. All manuscripts will be submitted online, and must be in either MS Word or PDF format.

Electrochemical Treatment of Contaminated Water, Soil, and Air: State of the Art and Trends in Research and Technology of Environmentally Oriented Electrochemical Approaches Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division, Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division, Sociedad Mexicana de Electroquímica (SMEQ)

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) is an international scientific association that promotes research and technology development in all the fields related to electrochemical science. In the case of applied electrochemistry, it is interesting to note that over the last few decades, many electrochemical approaches have been worked out for the remediation of environmental problems and some of them have actually become technologies that are now the most popular choice to deal with an important number of environmental challenges. In this context, a growing number of research groups all around the world are working not only on improvements or innovations on current electrochemical technologies, but also on the exploration of novel approaches for the electrochemical remediation of a wide variety of old and new environmental problems that involve polluted water, soil and air. The goal of the proposed symposium is therefore to bring together scientists, engineers and other professionals to present their findings and discuss future trends and directions on the development of electrochemical technologies for environmental problems. In addition to the electrochemical water treatment processes that include direct and indirect pollutant degradation, as well as electrochemically induced physical separation, the presentations that are expected for this symposium will deal with mature technologies and novel approaches for the treatment of recalcitrant pollutants in air and soil. In this way, and not limited to, papers dealing with the design, construction and evaluation of electrochemical reactors for the treatment of organic and inorganic pollutants in different phases, operation parameter assessment and optimization, electrode arrangement studies for soil electrochemical treatment, air disinfection and purification using electro- and photoelectrochemical based technologies, and integration of chemical, physical or biological purification and/or disinfection technologies with electrochemical operations; are all welcome. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium.

Thermoelectric and Thermal Interface

4 G04 Materials Electronics and Photonics Division, Energy Technology Division

Today’s electronics are smaller and more powerful than ever, leading to ever increasing thermal challenges. Approximately 90% of the world’s electricity is generated by heat energy, typically operating at 30-40% efficiency, losing roughly 15 terawatts of power in the form of heat to the environment. Heat sinks and liquids can be used to provide cooling. Advances in thermoelectric materials and devices with high Seebeck coefficients and figures of merit offer possible routes for thermal management, but also waste heat harvesting and power generation. Thermal interface materials importantly help to transfer heat from hot spots to the cooling hardware, and advances in both thermoelectric materials and interface materials are required. This symposium will address the most recent developments in thermoelectric and thermal interface materials and strategies for modern devices and applications. Papers on both practical and fundamental issues are solicited on topics related to thermoelectric material growth, analysis, processing, and applications, as well as thermal interface material applications and properties. The symposium will address basic and applied research and development, which will include the following areas of particular interest: (1) advances in bulk and nanoscale growth methods; (2) advances in device processing of thermoelectric and thermal interface materials; (3) power generation and energy harvesting and scavenging; (4) refrigeration and cooling; (5) semiconductor materials, growth, and processing; (6) phonon engineering and transport; (7) in situ and ex situ examination; (8) modeling of nanoscale effects in modern thermoelectric materials; (9) bismuth chalcogenides; (10) inorganic clathrates; (11) group IV and related compounds; (12) oxide and transition metal silicides, properties, and processing; (13) advanced thermoelectric materials; and (14) high ZT materials and devices. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors are strongly encouraged to submit a full text preprint, slides, or other presentation-related materials to the new preprint server, ECSarXiv (http://www.electrochem.org/ecsarxiv/).

September 30-October 4, 2018

Materials, Formulation, and Processes for Semiconductor, 2.5 and 3D Chip Packaging, and High Density Interconnection PCB Electronics and Photonics Division, Dielectric Science and Technology Division

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. The 2.5D or 3D concept replaces a long 2D interconnects with shorter vertical (3D) interconnects, which has the potential to alleviate the well-known interconnect (RC) delay problem that limits 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 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. Topics of interest in 2.5D and 3D integration include, but are not limited to: (1.) 2.5D and 3D process integration methodologies; (2.) 2.5D and 3D design and architectures; (3.) simulation and modeling of 2.5D and 3D integrated devices; (4.) materials and techniques for die and wafer bonding; (5.) processing and handling of thin wafers; (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 2.5D and 3D interconnects; (10.) novel test and measurement of 2.5D and 3D integrated devices; and (11.) thermal management in 2.5D and 3D integrated devices. Damascene interconnects using copper or cobalt, introduced at the 1020 nm node, are expected to be used for the foreseeable future. However, continuous improvements and innovations are necessary to adapt this technology to aggressive scaling demands. Fan-Out and Fan-In Waferlevel packaging also has advanced considerably through the introduction of novel materials and packaging technologies. This symposium will also provide an avenue for pertinent discussion to: (1.) methods to reduce effective interconnect resistivity; (2.) methods to mitigate electromigration and stress migration issues; (3.) advanced barrier/seed/plating processes including ALD, CVD and electroless deposition; (4.) porous low-k ILDs and air-gap based processing; (5.) novel electrodeposition and CMP processes; (6.) advanced substrates and packaging, high speed and optical packaging, wireless and micro CSP; (7.) chip-package interconnection; flip-chip; fan-out wafer level packaging (FOWLP); (C4) technology, Pbfree C4s, wire bonding, and compliant chip-package interconnections. An “enhanced” edition of ECS Transactions is planned to be available at the meeting.

Electronic, Thermal, and Electrochemical

of Metal Organic Frameworks H07 Properties (MOFs): Technology, Applications, and

Emerging Devices 1 Electronics and Photonics Division, Energy Technology Division, Organic and Biological Electrochemistry Division, Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division

During recent years research on electronic and electrochemical properties of Metal Organic Framework (MOF) based thin film materials and applications has created a new research field for specific functionalization of interfaces and surfaces. The work of various international research groups has contributed to discoveries of new physicochemical properties of MOFs with high application potentials. MOF synthesis and characterization have been supported by recent advances in theoretical models leading to better understanding of the fundamental materials science of MOFs. Today, highly porous and layered MOF materials have been successfully integrated into new technological applications ranging from microelectronics to sensors, batteries and photovoltaic devices as well as to functional thin film materials in the field of electrochemistry, optoelectronics, thermoelectrics, magnetism, data storage as well as to photo-/electrocatalysis chemical reactors and gas storage. The 1st International Symposium sponsored by the Electronics and Photonics Division of the Electrochemical Society brings together researchers in chemistry, materials science, physics, devices and process engineers and related interdisciplinary areas, to seek and capture the stateof-the art in MOF based fundamental aspects and latest technological applications. This symposium offers a new interdisciplinary and international platform, and aims to contribute towards advancing the fundamental understanding of the layered MOF thin films and aiming to improve technological applications thereof. Original contributions are solicited that cover all fundamental and applied aspects including electronic, thermal and electrochemical transport properties and phenomena, device/ system fabrication and integration of MOF thin films into emerging technological device applications. All oral presentations will be grouped into topical sessions. Invited Keynote speakers will present critical reviews covering recent advances and future directions in the diverse field of fundamental and applied MOF properties. Authors who wish to present a paper in the Symposium must submit an electronic abstract in English to the Electrochemical Society

Electrochemical Energy Summit: Sustainable and Responsible Supply of Energy Storage Materials, Components, and Devices All Divisions, Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Subcommittee

Increasing energy demands, environmental impacts, and aging infrastructure have advanced technologies to address societal needs. Increased demand for energy storage arises from its use in electronics, transportation and from the increased implementation of renewable energy. While the implementation of energy storage is advancing, its increased demand poses new challenges relating to the supply of energy storage materials, components and devices.

This summit discusses the need and solutions to achieve a sustainable and responsible supply chain for energy storage. The summit consists of invited speakers and a panel discussion with experts from the electric vehicle industry, processing chain such as mining and brine as well as materials, components and device manufacturing. Poster and oral paper contributions are solicited describing the role electrochemistry can play in establishing a sustainable and responsible supply chain for energy storage. Solicited abstracts are not limited to electrochemical technologies for the supply chain such as desalination to process raw materials, but may also encompass the energy demand of producing energy storage materials and components, as well as papers related to recycling of energy storage materials, components and devices. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors are strongly encouraged to submit a full text preprint, slides, or other presentation-related materials to the new preprint server, ECSarXiv (http://www.electrochem.org/ecsarxiv/). Abstracts should be submitted electronically to ECS headquarters, and questions and inquiries should be sent to the symposium organizers: C. Bock, National Research Council of Canada, email: Christina.Bock@ nrc.ca; Marca M. Doeff, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, email: MMDoeff@lbl.gov; Luis A. Diaz Aldana, Idaho National Laboratory, email: luis.diazaldana@inl.gov.

Scientific research is crucial to solving our world’s most pressing problems. Today, this research is not freely available: there are huge costs to publish and to access knowledge. Through Free the Science, ECS will remove publishing barriers to ensure that the sciences of sustainability and progress are free and open to everyone.
