Electrode Array

An electrode array is a configuration of electrodes used for measuring either an electric current or voltage. Some electrode arrays can operate in a bidirectional fashion, in that they can also be used to provide a stimulating pattern of electric current or voltage.

Common arrays include:

  • Schlumberger (Wenner)
  • Wenner alpha
  • Wenner beta
  • Wenner gamma
  • Pole-pole
  • Dipole-dipole
  • Pole-dipole
  • Equatorial dipole-dipole

Famous quotes containing the word array:

    Any one who knows what the worth of family affection is among the lower classes, and who has seen the array of little portraits stuck over a labourer’s fireplace ... will perhaps feel with me that in counteracting the tendencies, social and industrial, which every day are sapping the healthier family affections, the sixpenny photograph is doing more for the poor than all the philanthropists in the world.
