This paper presents an introduction of the polarization techniques using a micro-scale electrode area. It starts with the information about a capillary-based micro-electrochemical cell and a micro-scale electrode fabricated by a coating method, followed by several characteristic features and existing problems. Finally, the paper provides some applications of micro-scale polarization to corrosion research.
