How to check and correct the time-variance of your system under EIS measurements

What is the problem? For valid impedance measurements, the system under investigation should be linear, stable, causal and stationary. EC-Lab®’s THD Quality Indicator can be used to test the linearity of the system. Stationarity here means two different things: steady-state and time-invariance. Steady-state is the state of a system that is not in a transient state. For example, an R/C circuit with a definite time-constant is submitted to a potential or current step. Its response will vary over time after reaching a... + READ MORE

Electrochemical characterisation of a corrosion system by Impedance spectroscopy

EIS allows the differentiation of physical and chemical processes occurring during corrosion. The modeling of the impedance data with equivalent circuits allows a quantification of the kinetic and diffusion/passivation/adsorption processes involved in the corrosion at the interface material/electrolytes. 

Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful analytical method used to investigate the electrochemical properties of a wide range of electrochemical systems, especially for corrosion and applications for protection against corrosion. Impedance measurements are fast and non-destructive, as the corrosion system undergoes small AC amplitude excitations. Indeed, the measurements are performed at the steady state and have to comply with certain conditions in order to be valid (linearity, stationarity & causality).

EIS made easy: online training

If you are working from home or don’t have access to the lab, these online webinars could be the perfect way to fine-tune your EIS skills.

EIS or Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy has become a valuable research tool in research and industry across a wide variety of applications. Due to its frequential nature, EIS can be used to study a wide range of phenomena: materials degradation, electrode kinetics and mass transport processes etc. These phenomena are involved in an extremely large number of applications: sensors, batteries, corrosion, fuel cells, photovoltaics, hydrogen storage, catalysis amongst others ...+ READ MORE

EIS and Battery Screening

Battery screening is an essential process present at practically every level of the battery value chain from R&D through to second life. At the R&D phase, for example, it is used to select and validate the best battery chemistries. Screening is also used in order to select the right batteries for specific applications as well as being used to validate pilot studies.
The screening process often involves electrical testing on the battery through charge/discharge cycles. During these cycles, different parameters are measured.+ READ MORE
