DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP

The research interest of the group Electrochemistry of New Materials includes the theory and application of Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) in electrochemical systems. Impedance Spectroscopy can be applied to exploration of interactions of matter with changing electric field, resulting from movement of static or induced dipoles and charge carriers.

Our research interests covers the following problems:

  • Theory and application of Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS)
  • Kinetics and thermodynamics of adsorption and absorption processes
  • Electrosorption of hydrogen on metals and semi-conductors
  • Electrocatalysis, catalytic reactions with redox mediators
  • Electrical properties of new materials
  • Photoelectrolytic cells

For our research we use i.a.potentiostat/galvanostat Solartron 1287, potentiostat PAR (Princeton Applied Research) 263 A, potentiostat PAR (Princeton Applied Research) 4000, frequency analyzer Solartron 1260 with dielectric interface 1296A.
