Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy EIS is a powerful and non-destructive analytical technique to characterize bulk material, surfaces and electrochemical systems. The application of EIS in several research areas has rapidly developed. Examples are sensors, battery and fuel cell research, corrosion science, characterization of coatings and materials, electroorganic and bioelectrochemical science.
Effective application of EIS requires knowledge of the experimental method and of the systematic interpretation of measured data. The objective of this course is to provide an introduction for scientists and engineers who are newcomers in EIS. The fundamentals of measurement technique and interpretation of data are presented in seminars. In the experimental part the participants get hands-on experience. Application of EIS in coatings, bioelectrochemistry, fuel cells and batteries and corrosion science are presented by experts from industry and academia.
