Über den Autor
Andrzej Lasia obtained his PhD at the University of Warsaw in 1975. He continued to work at the University of Warsaw until 1982. In 1975-1976, and 1982-1983, he worked as a research associate at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Since 1983, Lasia has worked at the Université de Sherbrooke. Since his retirement in 2012, Lasia has continued to work at Université de Sherbrooke as an Associate Professor. Lasia's main scientific interests are in the area of electrode kinetics, electrocatalysis, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. He is the author of over 150 articles in scientific journals.

This book presents a complete overview of the powerful but often misused technique of Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS). The book presents a systematic and complete overview of EIS. The book carefully describes EIS and its application in studies of electrocatalytic reactions and other electrochemical processes of practical interest. This book is directed towards graduate students and researchers in Electrochemistry. Concepts are illustrated through detailed graphics and numerous examples. The book also includes practice problems. Additional materials and solutions are available online.
