Batteries-Supercaps-Fuel Cells-DSSC

Batteries, supercaps, fuel cells, and [dye sensitized] solar cells have some similar characteristics: they are low impedance devices with large surface areas often made using highly porous electrodes.  So similar techniques are useful and similar issues can arise.

Demystifying Transmission Lines: What Are They? Why Are They Useful?

Posted on 26 July 2013

Porous electrodes offer a high surface area to volume or weight ratio which is highly beneficial to a number of energy generation or storage devices. Transmission lines are heavily used in modeling in Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) experiments where porous systems are employed.

Compliance Voltage: How Much is Enough

Posted on 26 July 2013

The compliance voltage of a potentiostat is the maximum voltage that the potentiostat can apply to the counter electrode in order to control the desired voltage in the electrochemical cell.
