Theory of Experimental Techniques

  • Andreas S. J. L. BachmeierEmail author
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter reviews the theoretical principles underlying the experiential techniques utilised in thesis, in particular protein film and semiconductor electrochemistry. An introduction to electron transfer (‘Marcus’) theory is provided as well, including treatments of photoinduced electron transfer and electronic transfer in biological systems.
