Theorical Investigation of Linear Response for Passivated Metallic Electrode Under Potential Step (RESEARCH NOTE)


Elecrtical and Computer Enginnering, Isfahan University of Technology


The transient response of passivated metallic electrode system under potential step was analyzed based on a linear model, and a technique for calculating the parameters characterizing the growth and dissolution of passive film was proposed. It is believed that the information which is expected to be gained from the impedance measurement can be obtained by this technique and that this technique is superior to impedance measurement as it is much more rapid than the latter.
