Z02 - Electrochemistry in Space 3

Recent deployment of electrochemical devices in space, such as on the International Space Station and on Mars-based rovers, has highlighted the potential for using electrochemical processes and devices for critical space functions such as life support, in situ resource utilization, and vital probes for extraterrestrial exploration. The uniqueness of extraterrestrial environments such as microgravity, extreme temperatures, and the usual need for autonomous operation raises both fundamental questions about electrochemical processes and application challenges for device design. Electrochemical power with robust fuel cells, energy storage with batteries, and electrolyzers for production of metals, fuel and oxygen production present promise for increasing the viability of self-sustaining spaced based activities. This symposium invites research and developers to present recent advances in electrochemistry in and for space applications in a wide array of topics including but not limited to the following:

(1) fundamental impacts of extraterrestrial environments on electrochemical processes;

(2) in situ resource utilization through conversion of lunar, Martian, and asteroid materials into propellants, clean water, oxygen, and structural or functional materials/devices;

(3) electrochemical power sources to survive harsh environments of space;

(4) energy storage for power management in various extraterrestrial environments;

(5) sensors for chemical and radiation detection and for environmental and human health monitoring in space applications;

(6) electrochemical processes for environmental controls in extraterrestrial environments

This interdisciplinary symposium will bring together speakers from across a broad range of disciplines to discuss advances in research and development for electrochemistry in space. This symposium will also address how the extraterrestrial environments impact electrochemical processes as well as component design and operation. We want to facilitate broad interdisciplinary conversations through this symposium.

Z03 - Young Researchers in Europe: A Special Symposium and Workshop

The ECS Europe Section is organizing a special day-long event aimed at early career professionals in electrochemistry and materials science hailing from the geographical region of Europe. The purpose will be to facilitate connections between scientists and engineers in the field, introduce calls for research grants, in particular those requiring teams from several countries, allow time in between presentations to learn about participant’s research and projects and communicate similarities, differences, concerns and anxieties in seeking to do research across the countries of Europe.

Several keynote speakers will be invited, in particular representing grant institutions or international research consortia. These experts will be available during deliberately planned extended coffee breaks. While it is assumed that participants at the symposium will choose other symposia in their own technical interest area for their full papers, informal opportunity will be offered to young and early career researchers during the workshop period to highlight in a 2-3 minute "elevator speech" their own work. Young and early career participation is suggested to mean 35 years or younger OR within 5 years of embarking onto new topic or career track. When submitting to other Gothenburg symposia, please indicate your desire to also be included for consideration in Z03. The ECS Europe Section will hold its traditional reception one of the meeting evenings. All participants in this symposium and workshop are invited to attend.

D03 - Advanced 3D Interconnect Technologies and Packaging 2

This symposium focuses on issues pertinent to advances in traditional damascene interconnects, and new materials and integration methods for 3D interconnects. An emerging technology or device architecture called 3D integration is based on the system performance gains that can be achieved by stacking and vertically interconnecting distinct device layers. The 3D concept of replacing long 2D interconnects with shorter vertical (3D) interconnects has the potential to alleviate the well-known interconnect (RC) delay problem facing the semiconductor industry today. Additional benefits of the 3D process include reduced die size and the ability to optimize distinct technologies (analog, logic, RF, etc.) on separate vertically interconnected layers. An application area where large performance gains can be obtained is high-density device/sensor arrays where processing power is placed within each individual device. Damascene copper interconnects, introduced at the 0.25 µm node, have spanned six technology nodes, and are expected to be used for the foreseeable future. Despite the history of success, there are new challenges including increases in effective resistivity, electromigration and stress migration resistance, and the integration of porous low-k dielectrics and air gaps. This symposium brings together researchers to discuss the challenges and solutions to extend damascene copper interconnects well beyond the 45 nm node. The aim of this symposium is to discuss the proposed architectures and applications of 3D integration, and the various enabling materials and processes that are required to bring the technology into full commercialization. Broadly, the enabling process technologies include wafer/die thinning, wafer/die bonding, and vertical interconnect fabrication. Each of these process technologies will leverage novel materials, and much of the emphasis of this symposium is on the materials science of these 3D integration materials. Ideally, this symposium brings together researchers to discuss the various merits of the presented 3D device architectures, materials, and fabrication methodologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
(1) Methods to reduce increases in effective resistivity
(2) Methods to mitigate electromigration and stress migration issues
(3) Advanced barrier/seed processes including ALD and electroless films
(4) Porous low-k ILDs and air gap processing (including deposition and etching)

L10 - Interfacial Analysis for Energy Storage

For electrochemical energy storage systems such as batteries, (pseudo-) capacitors and other emerging storage devices, the gas/solid, liquid/solid, and solid/solid interfaces are critical nexus where many important physical and chemical processes take place. For example, the formation of the solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI) is one kind of electrochemical deposition at the electrode surface. How the SEI is formed and what it is composed of are strongly related to battery performance and safety (e.g., dendrite formation at lithium metal anode). Electrode/electrolyte interfaces usually experience transformations during battery charge-discharge cycling, resulting in changes in cycle life and energy capacity. Similarly, the interfacial couplings and reactions between electrodes and solid electrolytes dictate the operation and performance of solid-state batteries in distinct ways. Analysis of such interfacial processes provide critical information for materials design and operational improvements for numerous energy storage systems. Examining the methodology used for diagnosis of interfacial (heterogeneous) charge transfer processes is also key to understanding the involved chemistries. This symposium seeks oral and poster presentations on advanced methodology, innovative structure design, and research frontiers on interfacial analysis for energy storage.
