Every day, we all use battery powered devices at home, drive vehicles, eat packaged foods, and drink clean water. These are a few examples of the countless aspects of our modern lifestyles which are reliant on electrochemistry - broadly defined as the study of how electricity interacts with materials.
As an electrochemistry instrumentation company, Admiral Instruments proudly serves our customers who are among the millions of scientists, engineers, & technicians around the world using potentiostats and battery cyclers to uncover new ways electrochemistry may benefit us all.
To celebrate how electrochemistry has shaped the past, touches our present-day lives, and influences the future, every month Admiral Instruments posts five notable news articles, publications, & trivia somehow related to electrochemistry. Click on each entry to read more from the source article!
Electrochemistry News Items & Facts for January 2024:
The insulating oxide layer in modern transistors is just 10-20 hydrogen atoms wide, which is small enough for quantum effects to disrupt traditional charge-pumping measurements. Researchers at NIST found a way to replace traditional charge-pumping single-frequency square waves with a frequency-modulated signal to detect defects as small as the width of a single hydrogen atom.
