Development of programmable potentiostat

Potentiostat is most important instrument needed to start analyzing electrochemical reactions. One programmable potentiostat has been designed and validated for number of standard electrochemical experiments.

A potentiostat plays with three electrode setup – working electrode, counter electrode and reference electrode. Some specific potential is applied on WE with respect to RE and resulting current is measured which flows between CE and WE.

Our potentiostat contains two parts

  • Analog circuit (to control WE potential and to measure resulting current)
  • Digital circuit (to read / send analog signals and communicate with computer)
