Electrochemical processes

Gas-evolving electrodes are a central element in technologically important processes such as chlor-alkali or alkaline water electrolysis. However, an in-depth understanding of bubble nucleation, growth, coalescence and bubble detachment is not yet achieved. The studies aim on fundamental understanding of bubble dynamics, especially single hydrogen bubble generated by water electrolysis at micro-electrode. Electrochemical investigations are supported by high speed optical imaging, velocity and temperature measurements and numerical simulation in cooperation.
