Special Issue on
Mass Transfer in Electrochemical Energy Materials and Devices

The world has entered an era featured with fast transportation, instant communication, and prompt technological revolution, the further advancement of which all relies fundamentally, yet, on the development of cost-effective energy resources allowing for durable and high-rate energy supply. Current battery and fuel cell systems are challenged by a few issues characterized either of insufficient energy capacity or of operation instability and, thus, are not ideal for highly-demanded applications, such as electrical vehicles and portable electronic devices. Inefficient mass transfer in energy conversion/storage devices has been the key factor leading to these aforementioned challenges.
This special issue provides a comprehensive overview of contemporary scientific research advances and emerging technological innovations associated with mass transport in energy conversion devices including primarily fuel cells and Li ion batteries. This issue discusses the underlying fundamental mechanisms of gas diffusion and ionic conduction in fuel cells and Li ion batteries, general theoretical mathematical models for gas diffusion/ionic conduction, advanced materials/devices with high-efficiency mass transfer properties, and traditional and advanced techniques for gas diffusivity and ionic conductivity measurement. The ultimate goal of this issue is to provide both theoretical and practical guidance for future research activities for seeking viable materials solutions for addressing the capacity, durability, and cost shortcomings associated with current battery/fuel cell devices.
Journal of Electronic Science and Technology (JEST) plans to publish the Special Issue on Mass Transfer in Electrochemical Energy Materials and Devices (MTEEMD) in March, 2016 (vol. 14, no. 1, JEST). Authors are invited to submit unpublished manuscripts, which are not under review in any other conferences or journals, in the following topic areas, but not limited to:
• Gas transport in fuel cells and Li-air batteries;
• Ionic conduction in energy conversion devices;
• Advanced materials with high-efficiency mass transfer properties;
• Traditional and advanced techniques for gas diffusivity and ionic conductivity measurement.
