Nonstoichiometric Compounds V - An ECI Conference Series

The aim of this conference is to bring together scientists from diverse disciplines, who are working on nonstoichiometric compounds (oxides, nitrides, oxynitrides, chalcogenides, intermetallics, etc.).

Traditionally, the effects of stoichiometry deviations in oxides were investigated by those looking to understand and control the electrical, diffusional, and in many cases, the mechanical properties of these materials, with the aim of using them as solid oxide fuel cell electrodes, as battery electrodes, as sensors, as permeation membranes, and in various other electrochemical reactors. Complex oxides that exhibit nonstoichiometry are now also employed for high-temperature thermoelectrics, all-oxide electronics, high speed photonics and switching, memory and magnetoresistive devices. These and other oxides are also being developed as electrodes for energy conversion and photovoltaic applications.

Furthermore, driven by the semiconductor industry interest has also expanded to include nitrides, chalcogenides, oxynitrides, oxychalcogenides, etc. Given the diverse fields of applications, it is clear that a truly international conference devoted specifically to compounds that display nonstoichiometry will allow scientists from these various fields to learn from the other fields and from other approaches, to assess the state of the art, and to discuss future developments.


This conference will cover all aspects of nonstoichiometry in inorganic compounds. Topics will span from fundamental theory to advanced characterization and device demonstrations at both the macro- and nano-scale.

The conference will last four and a half days and each half day session will consist of two keynote talks, followed by shorter presentations on current research topics germane to the keynote talks. There will also be two poster sessions.

Contributions that include one of the following aspects are welcome:

Bulk defect properties
Surface/Interface defect properties
Mass and charge transport
Structural studies
Thin films and coatings
Theory and simulation of defects
Nanoscale phenomena
Materials synthesis and processing
Materials and devices for information conversion and storage
Materials and devices for energy conversion and storage
New techniques and methods for characterization
We plan sessions on the following specific topics, depending on the submission of abstracts:

Fundamental studies of defects
SOFC materials (Symposium in honor of the 65th birthday of J. Mizusaki)
Energy Materials (high-temperature thermoelectrics, photocatalysis, photovoltaics, transparent conductive oxides, )
Materials for Lithium-ion batteries
Interfaces, surfaces and nanosize effects
Materials for information storage
Piezo- and ferroelectrics
Emerging subjects: New materials and future applications
