Lecture and lab on bio-impedance measurements

Bio-impedance is a quantity useful for a growing number of application from lab on chip (impedance flow cytometry) to embedded diagnosis (detection of fibrosis on implanted electrodes) to medical imaging (Electrical impedance tomography). This lecture and related lab intend to a first discovery of what is a bio-impedance and how to measure it. Because science is actually fun and patients experiments are not allowed in engineering schools, we measure impedance of potatoes.

This lab uses a measurement developed for research purpose at the laboratory ETIS. Installation is fast using python tools. Two librairies have been developed:
