Stepped Impedance Filter Design

filter design
• Filter design is the process of designing a filter (in the sense in which the term is used in signal processing, statistics, and applied mathematics), often a linear shift-invariant filter, which satisfies a set of requirements, some of which are contradictory.
impedance
• A measure of the opposition to the flow of an alternating current in a circuit; the aggregation of its resistance, inductive and capacitive reactance.
• The effective resistance of an electric circuit or component to alternating current, arising from the combined effects of ohmic resistance and reactance
• electric resistance: a material's opposition to the flow of electric current; measured in ohms
• Electrical impedance, or simply impedance, describes a measure of opposition to alternating current (AC). Electrical impedance extends the concept of resistance to AC circuits, describing not only the relative amplitudes of the voltage and current, but also the relative phases.
stepped
• (step) measure: any maneuver made as part of progress toward a goal; "the situation called for strong measures"; "the police took steps to reduce crime"
• (step) footstep: the distance covered by a step; "he stepped off ten paces from the old tree and began to dig"
• Having or formed into a step or series of steps
• Carried out or occurring in stages or with pauses rather than continuously
• (step) shift or move by taking a step; "step back"

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (The ECS Series of Texts and Monographs)
Using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy in a broad range of applications
This book provides the background and training suitable for application of impedance spectroscopy to varied applications, such as corrosion, biomedical devices, semiconductors and solid-state devices, sensors, batteries, fuel cells, electrochemical capacitors, dielectric measurements, coatings, electrochromic materials, analytical chemistry, and imaging. The emphasis is on generally applicable fundamentals rather than on detailed treatment of applications. With numerous illustrative examples showing how these principles are applied to common impedance problems, Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy is ideal either for course study or for independent self-study, covering:
Essential background, including complex variables, differential equations, statistics, electrical circuits, electrochemistry, and instrumentation
Experimental techniques, including methods used to measure impedance and other transfer functions
Process models, demonstrating how deterministic models of impedance response can be developed from physical and kinetic descriptions
Interpretation strategies, describing methods of interpretating of impedance data, ranging from graphical methods to complex nonlinear regression
Error structure, providing a conceptual understanding of stochastic, bias, and fitting errors in frequency-domain measurements
An overview that provides a philosophy for electrochemical impedance spectroscopy that integrates experimental observation, model development, and error analysis
This is an excellent textbook for graduate students in electrochemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering. It's also a great self-study guide and reference for scientists and engineers who work with electrochemistry, corrosion, and electrochemical technology, including those in the biomedical field, and for users and vendors of impedance-measuring instrumentation.

Resistors & Capacitors: The Life of Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy
I did my chemical engineering thesis on fouling of reverse osmosis membranes using Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy. These resistors and capacitors were the standards we used and somehow managed to always go missing (considering there was about 10 of us using them at the same time). This was one of the few times they were all together in one spot. While I was bored waiting for my experiment to finish, this was something I was able to come up with.
Impedance Bridge
A fifties style impedance bridge (ESI 250DA). Extremely versatile. A Wheatstone, Capacitance Comparison, Maxwell and Hay Bridge rolled into one. Accuracy is basically 0.1% without going into detail. Also notice the great Fluke 887A in the background. Everybody should have one.
