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.
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?
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 & corrosion research
The role of scanning probe electrochemistry for research in corrosion
One of the possibilities of characterizing intermediate species created during a redox process, is to couple a spectrometer with a potentiostat
A local view of corrosion
The effects of corrosion need to be considered in almost every industry. A recent NACE report  estimated that corrosion costs $2.5 trillion USD globally
DC electrochemical characterisation of a corrosion system
Corrosion is an unwanted spontaneous electrochemical process leading to a structural degradation of a material.
What is EIS ?
Electrochemical Impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful tool enabling the study of processes that occur at the interface of the electrode.
