Solid State Ionics: Advanced Materials for Emerging Technologies, Proceedings of the 10th Asian Conference

The field of solid state ionics deals with ionically conducting materials in the solid state and numerous devices based on such materials. Solid state ionic materials cover a wide spectrum, ranging from inorganic crystalline and polycrystalline solids, ceramics, glasses, polymers, composites and nano-scale materials. A large number of Scientists in Asia are engaged in research in solid state ionic materials and devices and since 1988. The Asian Society for solid state ionics has played a key role in organizing a series of bi-ennial conferences on solid state ionics in different Asian countries. The contributions in this volume were presented at the 10th conference in the series organized by the Postgraduate Institute of Science (PGIS) and the Faculty of Science, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, which coincided with the 10th Anniversary of the Postgraduate Institute of Science (PGIS). The topics cover solid state ionic materials as well as such devices as solid state batteries, fuel cells, sensors, and electrochromic devices. The aspects covered include theoretical studies and modeling, experimental techniques, materials synthesis and characterization, device fabrication and characterization.
