Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy




ECS is proud to announce the publication of a new monograph, Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy, by Mark E. Orazem (University of Florida) and Bernard Tribollet (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and Pierre and Marie Curie University). Dr. Orazem has taught a short course on this topic at ECS meetings since 2000. ECS members receive a special discount on this book.

This book provides the background and training suitable for application of impedance spectroscopy to varied applications, such as corrosion, biomedical devices, semiconductors and solid-state devices, sensors, batteries, fuel cells, electrochemical capacitors, dielectric measurements, coatings, electrochromic materials, analytical chemistry, and imaging. The emphasis is on generally-applicable fundamentals rather than on detailed treatment of applications. With numerous illustrative examples showing how these principles are applied to common impedance problems, Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy is ideal either for course study or for independent self-study, covering:

Essential background, including complex variables, differential equations, statistics, electrical circuits, electrochemistry, and instrumentation
Experimental techniques, including methods used to measure impedance and other transfer functions
Process models, demonstrating how deterministic models of impedance response can be developed from physical and kinetic descriptions
Interpretation strategies, describing methods of interpreting impedance data, ranging from graphical methods to complex nonlinear regression
Error structure, providing a conceptual understanding of stochastic, bias, and fitting errors in frequency-domain measurements
An overview that provides a philosophy for electrochemical impedance spectroscopy that integrates experimental observation, model development, and error analysis

This is an excellent textbook for graduate students in electrochemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering. It's also a great self-study guide and reference for scientists and engineers who work with electrochemistry, corrosion, and electrochemical technology, including those in the biomedical field, and for users and vendors of impedance-measuring instrumentation.
