    Flyer

    The electrification of road transportation is generally considered the next important frontier for electrochemical energy storage, and it is currently debated whether prevailing Li ion batteries will ever be suitable for full mass-market electrification. Presently, a wave of optimism is building in the battery community that most of the limitations of conventional Li ion batteries for electric vehicles (safety, limited energy densities) can be addressed by using a solid-state electrolyte (SSE) in place of the traditional liquid one. Unfortunately, present-day all-solid-state batteries are still largely characterized by extremely low current (power) densities. This is ascribed to interfacial resistances, possibly arising from imperfect morphology or chemistry (in particular Li depletion layers) at the interfaces. The use of super-ionic SSEs, nanostructured interfaces, or blending with ion-conducting polymer gels appear as promising routes to overcome these resistances. However, as the exact reason for interfacial resistances is not even known for simple model systems, research along these lines is thus far largely empirical. A more directed exploration and therewith shortened innovation cycles require a detailed, atomic-scale characterization and concomitant understanding of the structures and the ionic transport at the buried electrode–SSE interfaces. Unfortunately, current characterization techniques do not yet provide a comprehensive picture. For example, microscopy methods provide direct structural information, but do not cover mobility on the relevant timescales, and electrical contacting to apply an external potential is extremely challenging. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is suitable to investigate mobility and resistance in battery cells and half-cells, but the information is indirect and requires modeling of the data using ad-hoc equivalent circuit models. Magnetic resonance is able to study ion mobility in materials as well as in cells, but the sensitivity of the method only allows for non-localized investigations, in particular when considering interfaces. This highlights the necessity for a multimodal analytical approach combined with theoretical multiscale modeling to obtain a mechanistic understanding that will facilitate rational material design for solid-state batteries. This symposium will highlight corresponding studies and discuss current frontiers.

  • Topical session (Symposium MM): Interface-Controlled Microstructures: Mechanical Properties and Mechano-Chemical Coupling

    Flyer

    Materials with a large specific interface area, such as nanocrystalline or nanoporous structures exhibit many interesting interfacial phenomena, which may be derived from energy functions that depend strongly on deformation variables or stresses, as well as on the local chemical composition. Such mechano-chemical coupling has important implications for materials properties such as toughness, deformability, compliance, and it enables novel functionalization schemes, for instance for sensing and actuation. With this workshop, we aim at presenting and discussing the state of the art in experiment, modeling and theory of interfacial properties – mechanical, chemical, and coupling-related – and of how they feed into interface-controlled mechanical and functional materials behavior.

    We welcome abstracts on topics related (but not limited) to
    • Chemo-mechanical coupling at interfaces and in materials functionalization schemes
    • Segregation and embrittlement
    • Local deformation at interfaces and the conjugated interfacial stresses
    • Dislocation interaction with interfaces, size effects
    • Crack initiation and propagation at interfaces, grain boundary engineering

  • Topical session (Symposium MM): Dynamics, relaxation and deformation in deeply supercooled metallic liquids and glasses

    Flyer

    Metallic glasses are advanced metallurgical materials with growing technological and scientific interest. Atomic-scale processes occurring in the liquid state control the properties of mass transport, structure formation and solidification, which greatly impact the material properties of the resulting glass. Thus, in order to ensure the success of metallic glasses as viable commercial products, and to facilitate better knowledge-based design strategies from the melt, it is imperative to establish a deeper understanding of the physical properties across atomic, nanometer and mesoscopic length scales. This topical session aims to bring together researchers working across various branches of experiment, simulation and theory. Special emphasis will be placed on the application of innovative techniques and methodology for exploring the microscopic link between structure, dynamics and materials properties in these systems. The scope of this topical session includes related themes relevant to the larger glassy dynamics community. We therefore especially encourage participation from those in the fields of granular and soft matter glasses.

    The following topics will be broadly covered during the topical session:
    • Atomic structure and dynamics of metallic liquids
    • Aging and out-of-equilibrium dynamics in glasses
    • Microscopic processes of deformation
    • Simulation and theoretical techniques

    Invited speakers:

    • Alexandra Lagogianni (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany)
    • Andreas Meyer (DLR Köln, Germany)
    • Beatrice Ruta (ESRF Grenoble, France)

  • Topical session (Symposium MM): Data driven materials design

    Today more and more easily accessible data is available than only a few years ago. This comprises results from combinatorial or automated experiments as well as data from high-throughput calculations or information stored in thermodynamical, chemical and physical databases. The availability of big data has led to establish data science as a new focus in materials physics with the overarching aim of developing new materials faster and more efficiently than it was possible before. In this symposium we will review the current state of the art of data in the field of materials science. Topics that will be addressed and where abstracts are welcome are:

    • Generation, organization, and integration of data from various experimental and computational sources
    • Characterization, curation and error analysis of available data
    • Development of models and materials from data
    • Coverage of all length and time scales relevant for materials science

    The symposium will consist of invited and contributed talks and a poster session. Contributions should highlight the importance of data for progress in materials science by providing best practice examples, by addressing open questions, by contributing to method development or similar.

    Invited speakers:

    • Igor Abrikosov (Linkoping University, Sweden)
    • Bill Curtin (EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland)
    • Martin Friák (Czech Academy of Sciences, Brno, Czech Republic)
    • Alfred Ludwig (Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany))
