Electrochemical Methods for the Micro- and Nanoscale
Theoretical Essentials, Instrumentation and Methods for Applications in MEMS and Nanotechnology
- This textbook brings together knowledge from electrochemistry and electrical engineering with a strong focus on application orientation.
- The detailed understanding of the methods helps the reader successfully apply electrochemistry, especially at the micro- and nanoscale.
- Selected aspects illustrate the application of electrochemical methods in the fields of sensors, neurotechnology, biomedical engineering, and electrochemical energy systems.
Are electrochemical methods like asking the crystal ball?
Once you read this book about electrochemistry on the micro- and nanoscale, you know it better. This textbook presents the essentials of electrochemical theory, sheds light on the instrumentation, including details on the electronics, and in the second part, discusses a wide variety of classical and advanced methods. The third part of the book covers how to apply the techniques for selected aspects of material science, microfabrication, nanotechnology, MEMS, NEMS, and energy applications.
With this book, you will be able to successfully apply the methods in the fields of sensors, neurotechnology, biomedical engineering, and electrochemical energy systems. Undergraduate or Master students can read the book linearly as a comprehensive textbook. For Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers as well as researchers in industry, the book will help by its clear structure to get fast answers from a specific section.
