Broadband Dielectric and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy

Novocontrol Technologies announces its next Training Course on Broadband Dielectric and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy to take place October 4-6, 2017, at the Novocontrol Technologies Head Office Site in Montabaur, Germany under the guidance of Profs. F. Kremer and B. Roling.

Registration deadline: September 11, 2017

The workshop will not only give an overview on the basics of this experimental technique, but also will elaborate on the following topics:

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
