Part of the Monographs in Electrochemistry book series (MOEC)


In this chapter, selected results of bending beam (bending plate) experiments with optical detection are presented as illustrative examples. In order to demonstrate the capabilities and limitations of stress measurements in electrochemical systems, relevant results obtained using the bending beam method and Kösters laser interferometry are discussed (e.g., platinum and gold in contact with electrolyte solutions, cyclic voltammetry and potential pulse experiments, stress changes in thin films and passive layers on metals, insertion of species into materials, monitoring of the electrochemical degradation of polymer films, simultaneous oscillations of electrode potential, surface mass and interfacial stress in the course of galvanostatic oxidation of formic acid on platinum, etc.).
