Training Course: Impedance Spectroscopy

ProductsServicesTraining Course: Impedance Spectroscopy
Product Description
This 2-day training seminar starts with the very fundamentals of impedance spectroscopy and works its way up to practical applications. It consists in one part of a lecture given by rhd staff and in another part of practical experiments performed in our lab.
The experiments show the cell preparation, setup of the measuring routine and data analysis. Each experiment is complimented by explainations of experimental and theoretical details and gotchas.

Training Course - for Impedance Newcomers

Impedance spectroscopy? Have you ever thought about expanding your analysis portfolio with this powerful technique?

This course helps you discover the secrets of impedance spectroscopy. From basic theory, explained with illustrative examples, over best practices to avoid measurement artifacts, to data evaluation for getting the best results out of your data.

Let impedance spectroscopy become a transparent, valuable and very helpful tool during every day working life for you!

Course content

  • Basic concepts and equations of impedance spectroscopy
  • Why are there so many different representations of impedance data and what can be learned from them?
  • The concept of equivalent circuits - which one fits to my measurement problem?
Best Practices
  • Artifacts and pitfalls in impedance spectroscopy and how to avoid them.
Practical demonstration of real lab experiments
  • Determination of the temperature dependent dc-ion conductivity, MacMullin number
  • Investigation of a commercial lithium ion battery (single cell)
  • Measurement of electrochemical kinetics
Data Evaluation
  • What information can be gained from my data, and how can I get them quickly?
  • Introduction into the RelaxIS analysis software
Exclusively for participants: get an extended test version of the impedance data evaluation software RelaxIS!
