High-Resolution Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy


Scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) is an advanced and powerful electroanalytical tool used for highly localized analysis of the electrochemical activity of surfaces. SECM employs ultra-micro electrodes (UME) as probes for scanning the catalyst surfaces providing detailed information of the catalyst activity on micro and nano scale, in short, to see the active sites on large piece of catalyst. The great versatility of this innovative technique by applying different operational modes provides unique opportunities for the future development of catalytic surfaces related to energy application.
