“Electrochemistry at one nanoparticle”

Host: Mark Allen


“The rapid progress in nanoelectrochemistry enabled the transition from studies of large ensembles of microscopic objects such as metal particles, vesicles or living cells to probing individual specimens.  The focus of this seminar is on the use of nanoelectrodes and scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) for experiments involving one specific nanoparticle.  We will discuss high-resolution imaging of and quantitative experiments at immobilized nanoparticles.  Another project is concerned with collisions of a single particle trapped inside the carbon nanopipette with the pipette wall.”
