A02: Challenges in Advanced Analytical Tools and Techniques for BatteriesF in Honor of Prof. Zempachi Ogumi

(Sponsored by The Committee of Battery Technology, Japan)

A Symposium A02 gChallenges in Advanced Analytical Tools and Techniques for Batteries: in Honor of Prof. Zempachi Ogumih, which was sponsored by The Committee of Battery Technology, Japan, was held as a special symposium in Pacific Rim Meeting on Electrochemical and Solid-State Science 2016 (PRiME2016) at Hawaii Convention Center & Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki, Honolulu from Oct. 2-7th, 2016.  The symposium focused on advanced analytical tools and techniques for all types of batteries including aqueous, non-aqueous, polymer electrolyte, solid electrolyte, and flow systems such as (1) in-situ and operando analytical techniques using X-ray, TEM, SEM, AFM, NMR, Raman, FT-IR, etc., (2) analysis using model electrodes such as thin films, single crystals, etc., (3) analysis on the interfacial phenomena at the electrode/electrolyte interfaces such as SEI formation.  The symposium started with an invited lecture gIn-Situ Analysis of Lithium Ion Batteriesh by Prof. Zempachi Ogumi, and 8 invited lectures from distinguished researchers, 58 oral presentations, and 9 posters were presented with active and fruitful discussion from Monday to Thursday.

The organizers selected three Best Oral Presentation Awards and one Best Poster Presentation Award from the presentations in the symposium.  The winners are as follows:


Best Oral Presentation Award

Dr. Saya Takeuchi

Theiss Research, National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA

gFocused Ion Beams for Lithiation of High Capacity Host Materials for Negative Electrodesh
