EIS Tutorial added values

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) has become an important tool in Solid State Ionics for studying mass and charge transport in electrochemical systems. It is not only of importance for fundamental research, but also for characterizing batteries, fuel cells, sensors, etc.

The EIS Tutorial contains 5 lectures and an  ‘EIS challenge’: The lectures will range from the basic principles of EIS to more advanced applications of EIS to very sophisticated cases and many experiences from the praxis. Many results were presented and the right interpretation discussed.
The  lectures are followed by an ‘EIS challenge’, where all kinds of impedance questions, problems and latest experiences from the participants can be discussed and exchanged with other participants.

The EIS Tutorial will provide a basic understanding of technical and physical principles that makes EIS one of the most powerful analysing instruments. However the EIS Tutorial is focused on already medium to good experienced users....

The EIS Tutorial will provide an excellent extension of your current know-how. It will support you with new findings and relavant experiences. You will come into contact with other users and specialist and can enlarge your exchange and discussion community. During the EIS Tutorial you will receive answers to questions before you have to ask them, as well as the chance to ask questions you may not dare to voice in front of a general audience. Opportunity for discussions and exchange is provided especially in the ‘EIS challenge’.

Each participant will receive a complete documentation of the Tutorial lectures, with many useful illustrations, tables and graphs. 

The EIS Tutorial will cover the following contents:
