Call for Papers <Mater. Trans. Special Issue>“Recent Advances in Solid State Ionics and Its Applications”
February 20, 2017     From: Materials Transactions
The editorial committee of Materials Transactions is planning to publish a special issue on “Recent Advances in Solid State Ionics and Its Applications” as December 2017.
The committee would like to invite many contributions of original articles from around the globe for this special issue.

Objective and topics of coverage are as follows:
 Recent advances in solid state ionics including ion-transport phenomena, materials development, and its applications are quite remarkable. As for the ion-transport phenomena, the visualization of bulk diffusion is being developed in conjunction with computational approaches, and new spectroscopic and diffraction techniques. Conduction mechanism and electrochemical reactions around surface and nano-scale interfaces are also being well interpreted. As for the materials development, in addition to high ionic conductors and mixed conductors, recently, a new class of materials such as polyanionic and organic-inorganic hybrid materials is of great interest. Their high quality thin films can be also fabricated by using the state-of-the-art deposition techniques. Furthermore, secondary batteries and fuel cells now show better and reliable performances. Operando analyses on such the devices have been also attracting attentions. Atomic switches and memristors are novel applications
 utilizing solid state ionics. This special issue covers all of these topics to overlook the current status and future trends in this research field; overview and original papers on the following topics are highly welcomed.

Topics: ion transport phenomena, ionic conductors, mixed conductors, cathode and anode materials, nonstoichiometric compounds, secondary batteries, fuel cells, gas separation membranes, operando analysis, advanced analysis techniques, atomic switches, memristors
