double-layer current

The non-faradaic current associated with the charging of the electrical double layer at an electrode-solution interface, given by:
i DL = d ( σ A ) d t
where σ = surface charge density of the double layer, A = area of the electrode-solution interface and t = time. Capital letters should be used as subscripts to avoid the possibility of confusing this symbol with that for the limiting diffusion current.
