International summer school on materials for  energy storage and conversion(mESC-IS School 2019)  is an integral part of  the symposium held with the same name ( International Symposium on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion, mESC-IS 2019).   The summer school, will take place 7-11 September  2019 preceding ( the last day overlapping with)  the symposium. The school will take place  at Mugla   Sıtkı Koçman University  for the first 4 days and  where it overlaps with the symposium at Yücelen Hotel, Akyaka for the fifth day. 

The school  follows the structure of the earlier schools, mESC-IS School 2017 and mESC-IS  School 2015 and aims to bring  new comers-early researchers with those experienced in the field. The school covers the state-of-the-art reviews in selected topics plus in depth coverage of materials and electrochemical characterization techniques.

Topics to be covered in the summer school are as follows;

Material/Electrochemical Characterization

Mario El Kazzi (Paul Sherrer Institut): X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy in battery research
Y.Eren Kalay(METU):In Situ Synchrotron Diffraction and Rietveld Analysis
Matthew Lacey(Uppsala University): EIS  for Battery Research
Meltem Sezen(Sabancı University):Focus Ion Beam Techniques in Mat.  Characterization
Servet Turan( Eskisehir Technical University) Adv. Techniques in Electron Microscopy



M. Kadri Aydınol (METU):How to make batteries-cell making pocesses
Michael Aziz(Harvard University): Organic Flow Batteries 
Aligul Buyukaksoy(Gebze Technical University): Int. Temp. Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
Babu Chalamala (Sandia National Laboratories):   Grid-Scale Energy Storage
Rezan Demir-Cakan(Gebze Technical University): Li-S batteries
Duncan Paul Fagg (Aveiro University) : Protonic Fuel Cells.
Mehmet Oguz Guler (Sakarya University):Li-ion Batteries
Onder Metin(Koç University) : Catalysis-A Brief Overview
Mustafa Urgen( Istanbul Technical University) : Supercapacitors

Hands-on sessions/case studies   are planned  for 

i) Rietveld refinement of XRD/Synchrotron data
ii) Photoelectron spectroscopy in battery reserach
iii) Electrochemical impendence spectroscopy in  battery  Research

Details as to how this will be implemented  will be announced soon.
