Workshop Electrochemistry

The team of the PI Timo Jacob at university Ulm organized a workshop on the basics and applications of electrochemistry. The similarity to plasma science is striking with the Debye-Hückel theory being at the core of both systems - plasmas and electrochemistry in the electrolyte. Nevertheless, important differences exist, because the boundary layer in the electrolyte in front of an electrode is much more complex than a plasma sheath region. The topics of the workshop ranged from a general introduction to electrochemistry, to methods, to eletcro catalysis up to the theoretical modeling of electrochemical processes.
