Scanning electrochemical microscopy into the nanoscale

Scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) has developed to a standard tool for investigating electrochemical and (bio)catalytic activities on surfaces. However, until now it was still difficult to reduce the size of the used microelectrodes and to scan a surface with resolution in the 10 to 100 nm range. However, this resolution will become more and more important for understanding processes at surfaces and elucidate local electrochemical activity. The tutorial lecture will give an introduction into SECM and will describe the challenges to extend its application into the nm range.
