Controlling the electrochemically active area of carbon fiber microelectrodes by the electrodeposition and selective removal of an insulating photoresist
Journal article, 2006
A new and simple method permits control of the electrochemically active area of a carbon fiber microelectrode. An electrophoretic photoresist insulates the 10-mu m-diameter carbon fiber microelectrodes. Photolysis of the photoresist followed by immersion of the exposed area into a developing solution reveals electroactive carbon fiber surface. The electroactive surface area exposed can be controlled with a good degree of reproducibility.
