S5. Ion-conducting ceramics

Ion-conducting ceramics 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 brings together researchers 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 cation and anion conductors, and consider a variety of ion-conducting materials relevant to a diverse application space. This symposium welcomes relevant presentations and contributions from experimental work, theory and modeling, and advanced characterization of these technologically interesting and important materials.


Proposed session topics

  • 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
  • Mechanisms for ion transport
