Four Lewis University Research Teams Present at International Electrochemical Society Meeting

Published: June 21, 2022.

Several student research teams of Lewis University chemistry presented at the 241st Meeting of The Electrochemical Society in Vancouver, Canada. The May 29-June 2 ECS Meeting was a forum for sharing the latest scientific and technical developments in electrochemistry and solid-state science and technology. It included technical presentations, full-day short courses, professional development workshops, career opportunities, poster sessions and a dynamic technical exhibit. Over 2,000 international scientists and engineers from industry, government, and academic institutions attended. 

All the Lewis University teams were mentored by Dr. Jason J. Keleher, professor and chair of Chemistry. 

Keleher gave an oral presentation at the 17th International Symposium on Semiconductor Cleaning Science and Technology. The presentation, “Design of “Low Stress” Post-CMP Cleaning Processes for Advanced Technology Nodes,” was composed of the work done by Lewis University students Kiana A. Cahue, Abigail L. Dudek, Mantas M. Miliauskas, and Tatiana R. Cahue, along with Amy Mlynarski, instructor of chemistry. 

Three Lewis University posters were exhibited during the general session.  

Dudek presented “Utilization of an α,β-Unsaturated Carboxylic Acid to Employ an “over Cutting” Mechanism for Defect Mitigation during Cu Post-Chemical Mechanical Planarization (p-CMP) Cleaning.” Cahue also was an author of the work.  

Miliauskas presented “Coupling Supramolecular Assemblies and Megasonic Energy for Improved p-CMP Cleaning of Silicon Carbide.” Lewis University students Adam T. Caridi, Ryan J. Gentile, and Joseph L. Powell also authored the work. 

Lewis University Ian D. Deninger presented “Optimizing the Electron Transfer Efficiency in a Conductive Biomimetic Polymer Electrode for Microbial Fuel Cell Applications.” Contributing authors also included Lewis University students Caitlin J. Shanahan and Ashna K. Sran. 

Lewis University offers a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry. Master’s degree programs include Chemistry and Chemical Physics. The challenging curriculum is led by industry-leading chemists. Students engage in innovative research in state-of-the-art facilities and innovative lab equipment.
