A hundred and 85 chemists, physicists, and engineers met in Schenectady, ny, for the 3 days could 10-12, 1976, to debate the topic of Superionic Conductors. This overseas convention was once held on the study and improvement heart of the final electrical corporation. the topic of the convention was once speedy ion shipping in solids. those fabrics have strength software in new kinds of batteries, gas cells, and sensors. a few like beta alumina are below energetic improvement in nov'el new structures. Their learn has additionally turn into a favored zone of medical research. One goal of the convention used to be to supply a discussion board for interdisciplinary communique among chemists, physicists, and engineers. The convention was once an try to carry those teams jointly, on the way to take heed to every one others difficulties and development. We started organizing the convention within the spring of 1975. It used to be prompt to normal electrical managers Drs. Craig S. Tedmon, Jr. and Roland W. Schmitt.
