||Functional ceramics that exhibit fast ionic transport or significant levels of concurrent ionic and electronic conduction continue to be of great interest in technologically important systems such as batteries, fuel cells, electrosynthesis, membranes, and sensors. This symposium will provide a forum to share both experimental data and theoretical and simulation studies, and discuss research activities and needs in this exciting field. Some of the topics that will be covered in this symposium are: solid oxide fuel cells, battery electrolyte and electrodes, advances in ceramic protonic conductors and ceramic proton conductor fuel cells, fuel production through electrolysis, lattice strain effects in transport and catalysis, mechanisms of mixed conduction in ceramics, role of microstructure in conduction, gas separation membranes, electrocatalytic phenomena, ceramic sensors, electrochemistry of nanoceramics and transport in corrosion-resistant ceramic films.
This symposium is sponsored by the ACerS Basic Science Division.
