Electrodes of the smallest characteristic dimensions less than few micrometers have unique properties which make them very attractive for use in many electrochemical and biomedical applications. Because of the response of these small electrodes it is possible to change their properties drastically just by variation of the electrode diameter. Depending on their size it is possible to decrease their sensitivity to the effects of solution resistance as well as also to increase their temporal electrochemical resolution.
