Advanced Manufacturing Methods for Energy

Devices 2 A04 Storage Battery Division, Electrodeposition Division

Energy efficient, high-speed, and smart manufacturing methods are rapidly being developed for the production of advanced energy storage electrodes and full cells, including the integration of 3-D printing and additive manufacturing processes. Novel coating architectures are being designed that include patterned electrodes with 2-D and 3-D features, and electrode processing methodologies are being developed that significantly reduce or eliminate the amount of organic solvent, or completely eliminate the liquid phase altogether. Cell manufacturing methods and associated componentry are being researched that significantly reduce the mass of inactive material (binders, separators, current collectors, etc.). When combined, these technologies reduce both the operating and plant capital expenditures while simultaneously improving cell performance, energy density, and power density. Papers are solicited for introducing: (1) new lower-cost component manufacturing processes; (2) strategies for simplifying cell production; (3) advanced electrode architectures with higher performance; (4) novel inactive cell components and assembly methods; (5) introduction of new binder components to cells; and (6) improved electronic coordination of cells.

Beyond Lithium Ion Batteries Battery Division, 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.

Thermoelectric and Thermal Interface Materials 5 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.

Materials and Processes for Semiconductor,

and 3D Chip Packaging, and High Density G06 2.5 Interconnection PCB 2 Electronics and Photonics Division, Dielectric Science and Technology Division, Electrodeposition 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 long 2D interconnects with shorter vertical (3D) interconnects, which have the potential to alleviate the wellknown 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 interest. 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 10-20 nm node, are expected to be used for the foreseeable future.

If you are submitting multiple abstracts for oral contribution to the same Section, please be aware that we might have to limit the number of oral presentations to one per research group per Section, which means that we might have to move oral contributions into the Poster Session, depending on how closely the papers overlap. Therefore, if you are submitting more than one oral contribution to one Section, we will have to downselect and you should send a prioritized list of your contributions to the Section’s Section Lead Organizer (indicated above for each Section). We appreciate your cooperation in this regard. 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 July 12, 2019. All manuscripts will be submitted online, and must be in either MS Word or PDF format.

Photovoltaics for the 21st Century 15: New Materials and Processes Energy Technology Division, Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division, Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division

This symposium provides a forum for terawatt-capable solar-toelectrical conversion technologies that have the potential to scale to meet the global energy demand and become an impactful source of energy in the 21st century. The path to achieving terawatt scale photovoltaics focuses primarily on device efficiency and costs, driven in part by the choice and availability of materials, device architecture and manufacturing processes. Also important to the life cycle cost of photovoltaics is intermittency and consideration of the module and cell end-of-life. 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 silicon wafer to thin-films and emerging technologies. Sample topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 1. Applications of electrochemistry in metallization of crystalline silicon solar cells for lower costs and/or higher efficiency; 2. Scalable and green solution-based processing technologies enabled by electrochemistry for thin film solar cells; 3. Emerging perovskite solar cells: device architecture and materials towards scalable manufacturing, durability and photovoltaic performance; 4. Earth-abundant solar materials: synthesis and properties; 5. Investigations of device degradation and reliability for current and future deployable systems; 6. Cost-effective approaches to recycle current and future solar cells and modules; 7. Sustainable practices in solar cell and module fabrication such as waste treatment; 8. Innovative applications that match the characteristics of solar electricity without storage. 9. Manufacturing and applications of full cells. 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 July 12, 2019. All manuscripts will be submitted online, and must be in either MS Word or PDF format.

Education in Electrochemistry 2

and Analytical Electrochemistry Division, L06 Physical Energy Technology Division While the lion’s share of research is accomplished by graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, there are a number of institutions that are undergraduate only who are making significant contributions to electrochemistry. These are wonderful opportunities for the students, but certainly present additional challenges to the primary investigator not seen at the more research focused institutions. This symposium calls not just for research methods and papers from an undergraduate dominated setting, but also teaching and curriculum ideas for incorporating electrochemistry into undergraduate programs. We look for this symposium to shed some light on what has been accomplished and some thoughts on what may be. Papers on basic and applied research and teaching in all areas of electrochemistry, electrochemical systems, and physics related to solid state and electrochemical science and technology are solicited. The topics will include: 1. Power & Energy Applications; 2. Corrosion Phenomena; 3. Electrochemical Synthesis and Engineering; 4. Sensors and Biosensors; 5. Luminescent Processes; 6. Materials and Biomaterials; 7. Electron Transport and Electrochemistry; 8. Biochemical and Biomedical Applications; and 9. Novel Approaches to Teaching Electrochemistry. Keynote lectures will be presented by invited speakers. A poster session will be planned. Student participation is highly encouraged, and it is anticipated that some funds will be available for student and young scientist support.

M—Sensors Sensors, Actuators, and Microsystems

Session M01 General Sensor Division

This symposium will address all aspects of chemical and biological sensors, actuators and microsystems. A companion symposium concerning the corresponding aspects of physical sensors and actuators may be found under Topic S. Chemical and biological sensors find extensive application in environmental monitoring, health care, food security and industrial quality assurance, safety and process control. Sensors and actuators are often integrated into “smart” microsystems: microfabricated sensors and/or actuators combined with electronics which enable, for example, signal conditioning and data processing. The need for multifunctional, smart technologies, which depend on sensors, actuators and electronics, is expected to increase in coming years as further demands and expectations are placed on systems and devices. This general session welcomes papers on all aspects of chemical and biological sensors, actuators and microsystems not covered in other sessions. This symposium intends to bring together a range of interdisciplinary topics and covers all materials aspects of sensors, actuators and microsystems. Primary emphasis will be placed upon applied aspects of the materials, synthesis, evaluation, and development strategies of novel materials/device configurations for sensing and actuating functions as well as integrated microsystems. Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas: (1.) physics and chemistry of sensor and actuator materials, fabrication, and characterization of novel compositions; (2.) novel sensor and actuator concepts, design, modeling, and verification, system integration and actuating functions; (3.) sensing systems that include sampling systems and actuators, like sensor arrays, and electronic noses/tongues; (4.) chemical and biological sensors and actuators based on various transduction mechanisms including electrochemical, resistive, fluorescence, surface plasmon resonance, surface-enhanced Raman scattering, fiber optics, radio frequency, microwave and surface acoustics; (5.) emerging technologies and applications including chemical and biological sensors based on nanotechnology, (6.) wireless integrations; and (7.) novel techniques to expand and ensure sensor stability and reliability. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors are 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: Dong Joo Kim, Auburn University, email: dkim@auburn.edu; Jessica Koehne, NASA Ames Center, email: jessica.e.koehne@nasa.gov. 17

Nano/Bio Sensors 7 Sensor Division, Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division

This symposium will address all aspects of Nano/Bio Sensors using nanomaterials as well as other materials. Nanomaterials have structural features and properties in between those of single atoms/molecules and continuous bulk materials. Nanomaterials have at least one dimension in the nanometer range (1 nm = 1 x 10-9 m). The nanoscale dimensions of nanomaterials bring optical, electronic, magnetic, catalytic and other properties that are distinct from those of atoms/molecules or bulk materials. In order to exploit the special properties that arise due to the nanoscale dimensions of materials, researchers must control and manipulate the size, shape, and surface functional groups of nanomaterials and structure them into periodically ordered assemblies to create new products, devices and technologies or improve existing ones. The art of controlling/manipulating the properties and utilizing these nanomaterials for the purpose of building microscopic machinery is termed as nanotechnology. Papers are solicited in nanostructure technology that has opened up a new perspective for the development of improved bio sensors. These sensors are employed in the areas of medicine, food, agriculture, industry, and environmental monitoring. These technological innovations have improved the sensitivity, accuracy, and flexibility for the analysis of chemical and biochemical compounds. Moreover, the recent progress in micro and nanotechnology allows a cost effective production of miniaturized devices in various types of materials. Progress in polymer micro technology providing the opportunity of using disposable devices in various fields of application is also solicited. As a result, life sciences research and development methods are becoming faster, more automated, and less subjective or error prone. Furthermore, nano/biosensors that are used as novel tools for the analysis of genetic structures and their influence on cellular functions that allows the entire focus of medicine to shift from diagnosis and treatment to identification and prevention are amongst the current hot topics in sensors. These technologies may also augment drug discovery with diagnostics that could eventually allow widespread production of individually tailored patient-specific treatments and therapies. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors are encouraged to submit a full text preprint, slides, or other presentation-related materials to the new preprint server, ECSarXiv (http://www.electrochem.org/ecsarxiv/).

Electrochemistry in Space High-Temperature Energy, Materials, and Processes Division, Battery Division, Dielectric Science and Technology Division, Energy Technology Division, Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division, Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division, Sensor Division, Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Subcommittee

The ECS Electrochemical Energy Summit (E2S) brings together policy makers and researchers to educate about the critical issues of energy needs and the pivotal research in electrochemical energy that can address societal needs and sustainability issues. The Summit facilitates interactions between policy makers and researchers through a variety of formats: keynote presentations, panel discussions, poster sessions, demonstrations, workshops, and associated social events and receptions. The growth in space-related activities is spurring development and investment from private entities as well as public government agencies from around the world. The potential for increase lunar and Martian activities with in situ resource utilization (ISRU), human space flight, and in-space satellite maintenance and space debris management present many technical challenges and opportunities where electrochemistry will play a central role. These include but are by no means limited to: 1) Electrochemical power sources with high specific power and robust materials to survive harsh environments of space 2) Long-term energy storage for transient management of solar resources in various extraterrestrial environments

19

3) Electrochemical processes for efficient environmental controls for extraterrestrial activities 4) Sensors for materials, chemical, and radiation detection and for environmental and human health monitoring 5) Sensors for planetary and extraterrestrial explorations. 6) In situ resource utilization and conversion of lunar, Martian, and asteroid materials to produce propellants, clean water, oxygen, and structural or functional materials/devices There is a rapidly growing awareness that space travel, development, and other activities will be fueled through processes and systems that enable extraction of materials and propellants in space for more affordable and flexible transport and facilities construction. The role of electrochemistry in establishing the processes, systems, and infrastructure to support such advances in space activities will be critical. This interdisciplinary symposium will bring together speakers from across a broad range of disciplines to discuss how advances in research and development for electrochemistry in space are addressing these exciting challenges and opportunities. We look forward to facilitating broad interdisciplinary conversations through this new and exciting symposium. No issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium.
