Dr. James Trevey, Vice President Engineering for Forge Nano will present at The International Conference on Solid State Ionics in Padua, Italy June 18-23. The SSI Conference is a major event in the field, which is held every two years and attracts a world-wide audience. It provides an unparalleled opportunity to gather leading international scientists and engineers, top-level industrial, management and business executives to discuss all the different aspects of the science, technology and applications of ion-conducting materials. The conference facilitates the exchange of ideas between people with different backgrounds and fosters the development and professional growth of both young and experienced researchers alike.

The Organizing Committee of the 21st International Conference of Solid State Ionics (SSI-21) comprises world-level experts in the preparation and study of a large variety of traditional and innovative ion-conducting materials for application in the modern fields of:

  1. Energy conversion and storage (e.g., batteries, fuel cells, redox flow batteries, supercapacitors, photovoltaics);
  2. Sensors and transducing devices;
  3. Actuators;
  4. Next-generation microelectronics (e.g., electroactive materials for memristors, capacitors and field-effect transistors);
  5. Photo-electrochemical and photoactive devices;
  6. Ionics in biologic systems and life sciences.

The topics of SSI-21 will cover fundamental and applied aspects of ion-conducting materials, both conventional and innovative. Experimental and theoretical studies of their properties, mechanisms of charge migration and interactions will also be highlighted. Finally, the fundamental studies will find their justification in the application of ion-conducting materials in batteries, fuel cells, redox flow batteries, capacitors, supercapacitors, sensors, actuators and photo-electrochemical devices, not to mention the fields of microelectronics and biotechnology. Particular emphasis will be given to cutting-edge topics of high fundamental and practical interest, comprising secondary batteries beyond the lithium ion, anion-exchange membrane fuel cells, redox flow batteries and new microelectronic devices.
