Symposium 19

Ionic and Mixed Conducting Ceramics

Ceramic materials that are ionic conductors or exhibit simultaneous ionic and electronic conduction have been attracting extensive attention worldwide in the recent years due to their scientific and practical significance in emerging technologies such as solid-state batteries, fuel cells, electrolyzers, and sensors. The chemical functionality of ionic and mixed conducting ceramics originate from equilibrium and non-equilibrium defects in the lattice and at interfaces, and enables unique capabilities for ion/charge/mass transport and electrochemical reactions. These materials offer high promise for future applications, for example, eliminating flammable components in high-energy-density batteries, and harnessing natural hydrocarbon energy resources through efficient environmental friendly methods.
This symposium seeks to cover both scientific fundamentals and technological applications of ionic and mixed conducting ceramics and their composites, thus bridging materials theory, simulations, advanced characterizations, functional properties and real-world applications. It will provide a platform for in-depth discussions and exchange of knowledges among researchers exploring solid state ionics in ceramic-based materials on different contexts and diverse applications.
