S5: Functional Ceramics for Energy Storage & Conversion

Register Today!

The performance of current energy conversion & storage technologies falls short of requirements for using electrical energy efficiently in transportation, commercial and residential applications. Ceramic materials have always played a critical role in energy conversion and storage, and they are facing greater challenges today to meet higher performance demand. Key materials science and engineering issues underpinning the performance of the energy storage systems such as batteries and capacitors include crystal and electronic structures of electrode materials, phase stability and phase transformation during electrochemical processes, ionic diffusion in the bulk of solid and at the solid/liquid interfaces. Similar problems are of importance in fuel cells and photovoltaics. This symposium will provide a forum for academic, industrial, and national laboratory researchers to present and discuss the latest advances and fundamental research in the area of functional ceramic materials for energy storage and conversion systems including batteries (primary and secondary) of different chemistries (Li-ion Mg-ion, NiMH etc.), supercapacitors and hybrids. Advances in computational/modeling aspects will also be emphasized.
