With the efforts to mimic biological neural systems and demonstrate brain-like energy efficiency in silicon-based computing systems novel materials processing, devices and circuits are evolving. This symposium addresses the devices for the hardware requirements using nanoscale solid state and electrochemical materials that enable neuromorphic computing and next-generation AI technologies. This includes in-memory computing and implementation of deep neural network circuits. In some instances, materials and device co-design, and device and circuit co-design, are required through extensive simulation and processing for system implementation. Issues like energy-efficiency performance enhancement are required to emulate the brain's connectivity in hardware. The switching devices that replicate the electronic synapse need to reduce the device-to-device or in-device stochasticity.

The following are indicative topical areas to be covered by the symposium:

  1. Neuromorphic computing and AI hardware related materials and devices: New devices, metals, and different switching layer materials are being considered for AI and neuromorphic computing. For example, resistive RAM, ferroelectric RAM, STT-MRAM ,and phase-change memory (PCM) are taking the lead to reduce power requirements. Materials optimization and development for neuromorphic purposes, such as CMOS-compatible ferroelectrics, multiferroics, etc.
  2. Materials and device co-design for AI: DFT and other simulation approaches to build devices with optimal performance with energy efficiency. This can involve transition metal oxides, and different layered materials.
  3. Device and circuit co-design: Fabrication of different resistive switching devices, circuits, and arrays for different applications. Device optimization for circuit design requirements.
  4. Impact of variability: Analyzing the impact of variability on the performance of crossbar arrays of resistive switching devices for different applications. Account for thermal effects on the performance (thermal management). Optimization of switching layer.

A04 - Battery Material Scale-up and Manufacturing

A key prerequisite for battery manufacturing is designing cell components that fulfill the targeted performance metrics and can be scaled up in a cost-effective manner. Conventional experimental R&D efforts employing design of experiments (DoE) methods have been successfully used for materials discovery and process optimization. However, these empirical methods are often time and resource expensive. Thus, a new battery innovation may take years to be deployed in production. Recently, high throughput (HTP) experimentation and machine learning (ML) have been introduced to accelerate battery materials discovery and manufacturing optimization by rapidly revealing patterns that are difficult to recognize using conventional analysis methods. Therefore, combinations of DoE, HTP experimentation, and digital tools including ML/AI have received increasing attention. Furthermore, there has been increased attention paid to sustainable manufacturing, including design of battery cells, modules, and packs with reduced energy and raw material waste streams. Ultimately, end-of-life considerations must be taken into account, which requires new processes for recycling. Finally, new manufacturing processes have been developed for control of advanced electrode architectures, including solid-solid interfaces in solid state batteries. Accordingly, researchers seek to speed up materials discovery, manufacturing optimization, technology integration in real battery cells, and battery recycling, with the goal of overcoming tradeoffs between performance, quality control, throughput, cost, and sustainability during manufacturing.

In this symposium, we invite world-leading experts/researchers in this area to discuss topics broadly covering the science of materials scale-up, high throughput synthesis and characterization, ML/AI assisted materials discovery and manufacturing optimization, sustainable manufacturing, recycling, and advanced cell integration, and manufacturing technologies. The scaled-up material systems and processes covered include, but are not limited to, cathodes, anodes, separators, liquid electrolytes, and solid electrolytes. Experimental and computational studies are equally welcome. Student participation is highly encouraged.
