Different grounding options based on application type
Corrosion basics: determination of the corrosion current and potential
This article describes a simple method for the determination of the potential and corrosion current of a uniformly corroding electrode based on the Stern or Wagner-Traud relationship.
Why use Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy for battery research?
Understand which information you can accurately obtain from your insertion material using Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy.
Rotating Disk Electrodes: their value and use
The Rotating Disk Electrode is a widely used device in electrochemistry research? But what exactly makes it so useful?
Cyclic Voltammetry: how to obtain good results…
What are the critical Cyclic Voltammetry parameters and how should you tune them correctly to ensure you get the best out of your instrument?
ac-, dc-, ic-, ic-ac, FB, GC… What does this SECM alphabet soup even mean?
A breakdown of the different techniques that make up SECM
Understanding bandwidth & its effect on measurements
An article which gives an overview of the electronic system that sits behind a potentiostat/galvanostats and describes how it can affect your measurements.
How to check and correct the time-variance of your system under EIS measurements
Are you running EIS experiments on a corroding electrode or on a charging or discharging battery and obtaining unusual or strange data at low frequencies? You should check that the change of your system does not affect your EIS measurements. Here are a few tools available in EC-Lab® to help you deal with such situations.
Scanning probes & catalytic systems
The role of scanning probe electrochemistry in research for catalytic systems.
One of the possibilities of characterizing intermediate species created during a redox process, is to couple a spectrometer with a potentiostat
What is EIS ?
Electrochemical Impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful tool enabling the study of processes that occur at the interface of the electrode.
Data of interest -work more efficiently.
Get the most out of your blue box : how EC/BT-Lab can help you work more efficiently as well as save valuable time.
Resolution, Precision, Accuracy, Temperature stability and Time base: The five to watch
The five characteristics that should be on every electrochemist’s radar
No need to plan your future analysis… Go straight ahead
It is time to demystify a false truth. You really do not always need to add points in the record settings of BT-Lab® and EC-Lab® in order to obtain highly accurate measurements.
Freedom, flexibility and control with Modify on-the-Fly
No need to stop the experiment with EC-Lab®’s “modify-on-the-fly” functionality
Why 4-point measurements?
A potentiostat / galvanostat is an instrument that can control both the current and the voltage imposed to a cell. For this purpose, Bio-Logic instruments require at least 4 cables:
