Special Session 9

Impedance Spectroscopy for Measurement and Sensor Solutions



Impedance Spectroscopy is a highly performant measurement method which can be used in many fields of science and technology including medicine, chemistry and material science. It measures the complex impedance over a range of frequencies and opens possibilities to for separating effects, accurate measurements and measurements of non-accessible quantities. Especially in the field of sensors an improvement of measurement information and multifunctional measurement can be realized.

Within the system design for systems realizing impedance spectroscopy, several aspects should be specifically addressed such as, measurement procedures, investigations of physical and chemical phenomena taking place, development of suitable impedance models and extraction of target information by optimization techniques. In some applications the low cost realization in embedded systems leads to highly interesting scientific challenges.
