General Electrochemistry

 

Performing standard electrochemistry measurements, studies on analytes, ion determination, analytical chemistry, electrochemical cell characterization & modeling, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry and determination of redox potentials fall into this category. Cyclic voltammetry, square wave voltammetry, potentiometry and coulometry are just a few of the methods to be mentioned when it comes to electrochemical analytics. Samples of organic and inorganic chemistry can be evaluated by these techniques in order to gain insight into their composition and the quantity of specific redox active species.

Energy Storage & Conversion Systems

 

Research on batteries, fuel cells, electrolysis cells and supercapacitors fall into this application category. Determination of State-of-Charge/State-of-Health (SOC/SOH) and of current and power density are performed on a routine basis using AC and DC measurement methods. Recording true parallel Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) data of stacked cells is of prime importance. Solar induced hydrogen production, water splitting, and artificial photosynthesis are also areas where our selection of products can be used to help develop the new generation of energy storage and conversion systems worldwide.

Solar Cell Research & Optimization

 

Zahner's CIMPS and QE/IPCE workstations, which utilize a combination of a Zennium workstation and external potentiostat powering a lightsource, are well-known within the solar PV research community as among the best equipment available to carry out the investigation of silicon solar cells (SC), dye sensitized SC, perovskite SC, Grätzel SC, organic photovoltaics (OPV), and other photoactive devices such as photo sensors. Determining power conversion efficiency, incident-photon-to-current-conversion efficiency IPCE, fill factor and charge extraction are common methods that can be run easily and reliably with our equipment.

Corrosion Monitoring & Prevention

 

Corrosion is one of most prominent phenomena dealing with the aging of materials. In many brachnes of industry and science, corrosion plays a subtle yet key role affecting processes ranging from the moving parts of complicated mechanical systems or the packaging of food. Research on steel, concrete, and corrosion under environmental conditions, aging of metal surfaces, aging of coatings and lacquers, and research on alloys are of interest to professionals in this field. The development of foils, lacquers, and laminates with the ability to protect sensitive goods against unwanted environmental impacts is important as well.

Frequently Used Methods

  • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS)

  • Multichannel Sequential EIS

  • Electrochemical Noise Test

  • Correlated Two Electrode I/V Noise Test

  • Relaxation Voltammetry

  • Equivalent Circuit Modeling & Simulation

  • AC-DC-AC Corrosion Simulation Method

  • Delamination Test

  • D-layer Test

  • Surface Stability Analysis

  • RDE & RRDE Experiments

Photo-Electrochemical Systems

 

Photo-electrochemistry covers many areas where photons comprise the fundamental functionality within a device or system, either through the emission or absorption of them (or both). New materials are developed all the time to harness the value of photo-electrochemical principals. Liquid crystalline displays (LCDs), light emitting diodes (LEDs), and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), all examples of such technologies, can be deeply investigated using products within our portfolio. Other types of light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) are being optimized for reduced energy consumption as well.

Sensor Development & Calibration

 

A majority of sensors, regardless of industry application, rely upon detection of an electrical or electrochemical signal triggered by a reaction or change of state of some kind. Instruments capable of measuring changes in current down to picoamp levels, or even as low as attoamp levels, are oftentimes necessary to develop and calibrate sensing elements. Admiral Instruments carries multiple electrochemical workstations and accessories that are well-suited for sensor optimization. Additionally, our potentiostats can be used in conjunction with a variety of sensing elements to function as the detector itself.
