Princeton Applied Research

There are many electrochemical techniques that find use in a wide array of research fields. These range from different types of voltammetry used for electroanalysis and sensor research to electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) used in corrosion studies of coatings and failure analysis of batteries. Below is a collection of Application Notes designed to provide Princeton Applied Research users with practical information to ensure our instruments are used to their fullest capability.
