Coatings, Corrosion and Scanning Probe Electrochemistry

Latest updated: September 22, 2020

Scanning probe electrochemistry is a family of local techniques that provides complementary information to bulk electrochemistry. This family includes Local Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (LEIS), Scanning Droplet Cell (SDC), Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM), Scanning Kelvin Probe (SKP), and Scanning Vibrating Electrode Technique (SVET). Scanning probe electrochemistry has found widespread use in the related fields of corrosion and coatings, due to its ability to obtain local corrosion data which is difficult to achieve through bulk techniques. Using scanning probe electrochemistry, experiments can be performed in situ to allow experimental results to be compared to real-world applications. With scanning probe electrochemistry, the local initiation and evolution of corrosion processes can easily be visualized and followed over time.
