About this Symposium
Meeting Materials Science & Technology 2018
Symposium International Symposium on Defects, Transport and Related Phenomena
Organizer(s) Tatsuya Kawada, Tohoku University
Manfred Martin, RWTH Aachen University
Sangtae Kim, University of California, Davis
William Chueh, Stanford University
Scope Following the precedent set through past annual meetings of the American Ceramic Society, this symposium focuses on defects, transport and related phenomena in crystalline, nanocrystalline and amorphous ceramics (but not traditional glasses). The symposium covers the topic of "Defects, Transport and Related Phenomena" in a holistic sense. The materials to be covered will include ionic, electronic and mixed conductors for SOFCs, batteries, sensors, electrochromics, transparent conductors, and magnetic, magnetoresistive, ferroelectric, dielectric, superconducting and other ceramic materials. Contributions related to the high-resolution microanalysis of defect structures are also very welcome as well as such related to the computer modeling of defect energetics.
Session topics include but are not limited to:
- Structure, including point and other defects in crystalline ceramic and amorphous ceramic solids, different types of in-situ and spectroscopic studies (NMR, EPR, etc.), thermodynamics, modeling and energy calculations.
- Transport, including crystalline and non-traditional amorphous ceramic materials, diffusion, conduction, experimental work, modeling and computational work.
- Relaxation phenomena, including ionic, electronic, impedance spectroscopy, NMR (dynamics), experimental work, modeling, and calculations.
- Other defect-related phenomena, such as creep, solid-state reactions, optical properties, magnetic properties.
