SYMPOSIUM 11: Ion Conducting Ceramics



Ion conducting membranes are expected to be vital components of an increasingly demanding global energy future.  New technologies ranging from clean energy production to electrical energy storage and chemical separations will require the development of robust, highly functional ion conducting ceramics.  This symposium will bring together researchers from academia, government labs, and industry to discuss critical properties-process-performance relationships central to the effective development of ion conducting ceramics. Presentations and discussions are expected to address technical challenges and insights across a wide range of length scales (atomic to macroscopic), address both cation and anion conductors, and consider a variety of ion conducting materials relevant to a diverse application space.  


Proposed Sessions:

  • Novel ion conducting materials
  • Influences of ceramic processing on ion conduction
  • Cation conducting ceramics for energy storage
  • Oxygen conductors
  • Membranes for chemical separations
  • Computational studies in ion-transport ceramics
