Special Journal Issue Now Available on Emerging Investigators


Feb. 9, 2018


 

The ASME Journal of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage recently published a special issue, Emerging Investigators in Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage 2018,” which showcases the work of 13 up-and-coming scientists and engineers in the field of electrochemical energy conversion and storage.

Emerging investigators are researchers who are usually in the early phases of their independent careers, within 12 years of receiving their doctorates, who have demonstrated potential for high impact in the field. This special issue is intended to highlight emerging engineers and scientists who are internationally recognized for making outstanding contributions to the electrochemical energy conversion and storage field.

In addition to an editorial presenting profiles of the 13 contributing emerging scientists and engineers, the issue features two review articles: “Redox Flow Batteries for Energy Storage: A Technology Review” and “Mesoscale Physicochemical Interactions in Lithium–Sulfur Batteries: Progress and Perspective.” The issue also includes 10 research papers, including “An Interdisciplinary View of Interfaces: Perspectives Regarding Emergent Phase Formation,” “A Three-Dimensional Agglomerate Model of an Anion Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell,” “Innovating Safe Lithium-Ion Batteries Through Basic to Applied Research,” and “Blue Refrigeration: Capacitive De-ionization for Brackish Water Treatment.”

The new issue is the latest in a series of special ASME Journal of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage issues, including “Multiphysics Coupling in Energy Storage,” which was published in August 2016.

Visit the ASME Digital Collection now to read the editorial for the special issue on “Emerging Investigators in Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage 2018,” as well as the issue’s review articles and research papers, which will be open to the public for two weeks.To learn more about the ASME Journals Program, visit https://journaltool.asme.org.
