Symposium 2
Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy: Reading, Writing, Monitoring of Functional Interfaces
Sponsored by: Division 1, Analytical Electrochemistry

A wide variety of surface modification procedures exploits electrochemical principles to achieve desired properties of materials, coatings or molecular layers. Electrochemical techniques are also used to interrogate or activate the functional properties of such and other layers. Procedures are particular effective if they integrate surface preparation and examination possibly also connected with parallelization, multiplexing and miniaturisation. This symposium addresses new developments towards integrated electrochemical preparation and characterization techniques in such areas as bioelectrochemical assays, diagnostics, materials deposition, surface coating, corrosion, electrocatalysis, photoelectrochemistry, electrochromism and display technology.

Techniques will include but are not limited to electrochemical scanning probe techniques (SECM, scanning droplet cell, scanning photoelectrochemical microscopy, etc.), application of addressable electrode arrays including their integration with microfluidics, combinatorial material libraries and testing.

Symposium 10
Electrodeposition for Energy Applications
Sponsored by: Division 4, Electrochemical Materials Science

Electrodeposition is poised to play an important role in the development of any electrochemical energy conversion technology as well as in the design and manufacturing of devices, both at the micro- and macro-scale.

In particular, selective growth at regions of high conductivity favors the presence of high mobility paths for charge carriers, enhancing conversion efficiency and performance.
Electrodeposition is used in the synthesis of a wide variety of materials, ranging from metals and alloys, to compound semiconductors, dielectrics and polymers; the availability of novel processes and materials may open the way to enhanced device fabrication or entirely new means of energy conversion, facilitating innovation and market penetration.
