1st Solid-state Chemistry & Ionics (SCI) workshop: Recent progress in solid-state ionics


Solid-state chemistry and solid-state ionics are the fields dealing with the breadth of advanced energy technologies such as lithium ion batteries, solid oxide fuel cells, electrolyzers, sensors, catalysts, photocatalysts, and so on. Fundamental understanding of the structure-chemical bonding-property relationship is the heart of the fields. Discovery of new compound always fascinated chemists and scientists, which brought tremendous advances in energy technologies. LiFePO4 for Li-ion battery is a great example. Although the activities accelerate in both fields, it is getting difficult to cover progress in both fields. To address the situation, we started this workshop. Each workshop focuses on a specific theme covered by specialists in the fields.

The first series focuses on recent progress in solid-state ionics featuring Prof. Haile from Northwestern University, USA. We hope that this workshop broadens your perspectives, provides catalytic activities between the fields, and ultimately creates a new direction of our disciplines.
