SCAN-Lab Technical Notes 11: Determining the probe diameter and RG ratio in an SECM experimentLatest updated: August 4, 2021
When performing SECM measurements the diameter and the RG ratio of the Ultra MicroElectrode (UME) probe are of the utmost importance. As the diameter of the probe
ultimately determines the resolution of the experiment the probe is usually selected to be on the order of, or smaller than, the features of interest. The RG ratio is the ratio of the insulating sheath, which is ideally 10 or less for the most sensitive measurements. This note demonstrates how the probe diameter and RG ratio are determined.

Compact SECM built for high-resolution imaging, x,y stages are fully separated from z stage to reduce crosstalk
A modular, state-of-the-art instrument allowing users to exploit 9 local electrochemistry techniques.
LEIS – M470
Used extensively for research in coatings and corrosion. LEIS is of particular use for measuring the impedance of coated samples.
OSP – M470
The Optical Surface Profiler option of Bio-Logic’s modular M470 scanning electrochemical workstation.
SKP – M470
SKP sensitively measures changes in sample work function related to surface state changes
SVET/Vibrating Probe – M470
Scanning vibrating probe, or SVET, is often used by researchers to investigate corrosion processes in situ, in real time.
ac/dc-SDS – M470
The SDS470 is perfect for any conducting or semi-conducting sample. Because the technique is centred on a confined, local electrochemical cell, it can potentially be used for applications in a wide variety of fields from sensors to catalysis
