About This Webinar
Combining vibrational spectroscopy with electrochemistry is helpful for studying electrochemical reactions, battery research, and failure analysis. Each molecule has a unique infrared and Raman signature that provides high specificity for the analysis of molecular change during electrochemical reactions.

Sergey Shilov, Ph.D., of Bruker Optics presents an overview of spectroelectrochemical tools and the optimization of their setup, and he shares details about the communication between the potentiostat and the spectrometer.

Applications for vibrational spectroscopy combined with electrochemistry include the electro-oxidation of metal-organic complexes, carbon analysis in flexible electrodes, the chemical mapping of the solid electrolyte interface of lithium metal batteries, and the analysis of the gases that are evolved during the batteries' decomposition.


Who should attend:
Engineers, manufacturers, and R&D scientists who utilize or are interested in vibrational spectroscopy or electrochemistry. Those whose work includes electrochemical reactions, battery research, and failure analysis. Anyone who works with technologies such as imaging, microscopy, nanophotonics, and test and measurement in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and medicine.
