Book Description

Impedance Spectroscopy is a powerful measurement method used in many application fields such as electrochemistry, material science, biology and medicine, semiconductor industry and sensors.

Using the complex impedance at various frequencies increases the informational basis that can be gained during a measurement. It helps to separate different effects that contribute to a measurement and, together with advanced mathematical methods, non-accessible quantities can be calculated. This book is the third in the series Lecture Notes on Impedance Spectroscopy (LNIS). The series covers new advances in the field of impedance spectroscopy including fundamentals, methods and applications. It releases scientific contributions from the International Workshop on Impedance Spectroscopy (IWIS) as extended chapters including detailed information about recent scientific research results.

This book is of interest for graduated students, engineers, researchers and specialists dealing with impedance spectroscopy. It includes fundamentals of impedance spectroscopy as well as specific theoretical and practical aspects from many applications in various fields.

Prof. Olfa Kanoun received the Dipl.-Ing. Degree in 1995 from the Technische Universität München and the Ph.D. degree in 2001 from the institute for measurement and automation at the Universität der Bundeswehr München in Germany. She was awarded from the Commission of Professors in Measurement Technology (AHMT) in Germany for the best dissertation in 2001. In 2004 she founded the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Chapter within the IEEE Section Germany. Since 2007 she is professor at Chemnitz University of Technology in Germany leading the chair for Measurement and Sensor Technology (MST). In 2008 she founded the International Workshop on Impedance Spectroscopy (IWIS). Her main research fields are: Impedance spectroscopy, sensors, measurement systems and energy harvesting.


The papers included in this book cover a broad range of topics, showing the usefulness and broad applicability of IS techniques. They are very well written, many of them including discussion of background theory and the measurement techniques used to obtain the data presented. Thus they would be fairly readily understood, even by a nonexpert.
