I'm reading about electrodeposition of conductive polymers in a chemistry textbook, and the author mentions 'trace-crossing' in the 'potentiodynamic response'. From the context I can figure out that 'potentiodynamic response' means cyclic voltammogram. But what is the 'trace crossing'?
'Trace crossing' is in the literal sense, where 'trace' is another word for 'line'. 'Trace crossing' basically means that the line in the voltammogram crosses itself.
