  • Title: Opto-Electrochemical Sensors
  • Abstract: Opto-electrochemistry is the state of the art and technology of not only imaging surfaces of a condensed matter, i.e., solid metal, submerged in aqueous solutions, but also, the science of measuring electrochemical properties of the condensed matter by solely light. In the present work, two sensors of laser optical interferometry will be used to detect crevice (shield) corrosion of low carbon steel samples in aqueous solutions. The first technique will use an optical corrosion-meter to detect localized shield corrosion known as a crevice corrosion, of the low carbon steel samples in seawater. The concept of the optical corrosion-meter is based on incorporating holographic interferometry and the cyclic polarization test. The second sensor will use a modified electrochemical noise technique based on holographic interferometry to detect the crevice corrosion of the low carbon steel samples in 1 M of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution.
