Webinars & Live Demonstrations
2021 Events Schedule
Presented by Dr. Chris Arges, Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering at Louisiana State University (LSU) in Baton Rouge
Polymer electrolytes are important material components to the efficiency of numerous electrochemical processes. This webinar will be presented in two parts:
- Part 1 of this talk presents the impetus behind the re-emergence of high-temperature polymer electrolyte membrane (HT-PEM) fuel cells for vehicular applications.
- Part 2 of the talk presents our work on probing the ionic activity coefficients in thin film polymer electrolytes interfaced with liquid aqueous electrolytes using advanced metrology (e.g., environmental GI-SAXS and QCM) and classical molecular dynamics simulations.
Corrosion Resistance of Metals for Orthopedic Implants in Simulated Synovial Fluids under Inflammatory ConditionsMay 20, 2021 11:00 AM EST (US & Canada) ZOOM Event
The talk will include studies of electrochemical measurements on two metals for implants (CoCrMo-alloy and a high nitrogen austenitic steel), with a part focused on Rp results from LPR measurements.
