Supercapacitors using an EQCM: Supercapacitors have high charge/discharge rates, long cycle life, operate over a large temperature range and have a low cost-per-cycle. (EQCM) is a Quartz Crystal Microbalance that has been interfaced to a potentiostat such that one of the crystal faces is used as a working electrode.
Physical Electrochemistry Techniques
The Applications and Technical Notes below cover, broadly, "electrochemistry" from what a potentiostat is to advanced physical electrochemistry techniques. Click on a link below to download the PDF version of the Application or Technical Note.
This Application Note deals specifically with bacterial biofilms that convert chemicals to electrical current on electrodes. Because of this function, we refer to them as electrochemically active biofilms (EABs).
Intensity modulated photocurrent spectroscopy (IMPS) and intensity modulated photovoltage spectroscopy (IMVS) can offer valuable information about dye solar cells (DSCs).
This application note discusses the spectroscopic experiments in Gamry’s Framework and explains their setup parameters.
Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) is inarguably the most popular electrochemical technique. It owes its well-deserved reputation to its ability to deduce reaction mechanisms with relatively low-cost equipment and quick experimentation.
Layer-by-Layer (LbL) assembly is a technique where alternating layers of positively and negatively charged layers are assembled in sandwich-like fashion.
