to the 16th Solid State Proton Conductors (SSPC16) conference site.
The conference will take place in Grenoble (France) -- September 10-14, 2012
General Scope. Solid state protonics is a burgeoning field focused on the fundamental mechanisms and ultimate applications of proton transport through solid materials. The subject addresses both hard (oxide, oxyanion salt) and soft (polymeric) materials and incorporates advanced experimental methods as well as advanced computational strategies. Topical areas span from new materials to proton transport mechanisms at the atomic scale, from characterization and modeling at the meso/macro scale to the multi-scale transport/structure/properties relationship. Technology applications and issues related to durability in fuel cells will also be covered. Given the rising urgency of energy solutions and the key role of solid state protonics in energy technologies such as fuel cells and batteries and in environmental technologies such as sensors, this meeting will provide an ideal venue for lively information exchange.
Special Scope. Special attention will be devoted to the use of modern scattering techniques (Neutrons / X-rays) for studying properties of materials for novel energy. The conference will benefit from the unique scientific environment of Grenoble including world-class large scale facilities as the ESRF and ILL. A guided tour of both facilities will be organized and a special scientific afternoon will be dedicated to Neutron and/or X-rays studies.
