Broadband Dielectric and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy
Novocontrol Technologies announces its next Training Course on Broadband
Dielectric and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy to take
place October 10-12, 2018, at the Novocontrol Technologies Head Office Site in Montabaur, Germany under the guidance of Profs. F. Kremer and B. Roling.
Registration deadline: September 17, 2018
Registration closedThe workshop will not only give an overview on the basics of this experimental technique, but also will elaborate on the following topics:
- Fundamentals of Broadband Dielectric and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (BDS/EIS)
- Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopy on polymers and glass forming liquids
- Relaxational dynamics in confined systems, including thin films
- Characterisation of electrochemical cells
- Analysis of dielectric and impedance spectra dominated by charge transport
Broadband Dielectric and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (BDS/EIS) have emerged in manifold areas of modern science and technology.
Topics like molecular dynamics in nanometric confinement, scaling of relaxation processes of glass-forming liquids and polymers, charge transport in ion-conducting systems etc. require a detailed understanding of the underlying physical mechanisms which can be achieved by BDS/EIS.
The development and understanding of high-tech materials like Liquid Crystals (LC), Ionic Liquids (IL), "Organic Metals", colloids and polymers incorporated in displays, fuel cells, organic electronics, colloidal suspensions or polymer-based components requires a detailed knowledge of the complex dielectric and conductivity function response, preferentially measured over a broad spectral and temperature range by BDS/EIS.
The proposed short course provides an introduction into this exciting field of modern science. It will demonstrate both in theory and in practical exercises the extraordinary potential of BDS/EIS and their applications.Seminar blocks will be complemented by hands-on experience - under professional guidance, participants perform and evaluate their own experiments, if possible on their own samples. The regular participation fee will be
€ 1800 for industrial attendants
€ 850 for academic attendants
The number of participants is limited. Spaces are allocated on a first come - first serve basis.
Prospective attendants please register using the Registration Form. Please also fill our Questionnaire for Attendees and submit both forms by fax to +49 2602 9199120 or scanned copies to firstname.lastname@example.org.
