Scanning probe electrochemistry for sensor research

Latest updated: June 2, 2023

In the study of sensors an understanding of the local properties of the sensor, particularly the activity of different regions, can provide invaluable information about the system. To obtain truly local information the scanning probe electrochemistry techniques are used. For sensors studies Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM), and Scanning Kelvin Probe (SKP) are of particular interest. SECM and SKP have been used to study a variety of sensor systems investigating the local activity of both bare and modified electrodes without the need for pre-treatment, and in the case of SECM with chemical selectivity.
