Webinar - The Wonderful World of Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM)

The Wonderful World of Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy_F1

In this webinar, Dr. Janine Mauzeroll will discuss the fundamentals, critical experimental parameters and recent applications for scanning electrochemical Microscopy (SECM).

In its simplest form, SECM is a scanning probe technique in which a small- scale electrode is scanned across an immersed substrate while recording the current response. This response is dependent on both the surface topography and the electrochemical activity of the substrate. Consequently, using an array of operational modes, a wide variety of substrates and experimental systems can be characterized. The strength of SECM lies in its ability to quantify material flux from a surface with a high spatial and temporal resolution. It has been used in a variety of applications fields.

Dr. Janine Mauzeroll will first describe the fundamentals of SECM, including the required instrumentation and the principles of the most frequently used operational modes. Following this basic understanding of SECM principles, she will then move towards a comprehensive summary of the critical parameters for any SECM experiment. Specifically, she will discuss in detail redox mediators, probes, and solvent systems that are used in SECM experiments. Finally, she will present recent applications of SECM with an emphasis on her work in the last five years related to material characterization, corrosion and batteries.

About DSI Events

Data Sciences International (DSI) is involved in over 60 events every year. These include scientific meetings such as industry trade shows, courses and seminars, workshops, as well as educational user groups and symposia all over the world.

DSI supported educational events are scientific meetings organized in cooperation with a local institution or society, pharmaceutical company, university, or local telemetry user group. Educational event meetings serve as an educational forum in which researchers can freely share current scientific information with their peers, students, and other interested scientists.

Common to the general theme of the meetings is the data collected through physiological monitoring of freely moving conscious laboratory animals made possible through the use of fully implantable telemetry technology.

Presentations and posters on the latest methods employed by the presenting researchers enable those attending to benefit from the as yet unpublished work of peers. Presentations can be on a wide range of related research topics including surgical implantation methods, data analysis methods, treatment effects of new pharmaceutical compounds, new animal models, behavioral and physiological interactions, basic research on physiological systems, and numerous other whole animal chronic monitoring research topics.

Meetings are held in classroom style with ample time allowed for questions and discussion among the participants. Typical audience sizes run from 40 to 120.
