Phenom ParticleX Battery Desktop SEM - Battery Production and Analysis

The quality of materials is becoming increasingly important in battery research and manufacture. For instance, minute impurities in the NCM powder can have catastrophic effects on the finished product.

High-resolution SEM imaging with EDS analysis for chemistry is needed to trace these contaminants effectively. When fully automated, this combination is a powerful tool for powder quality inspection.

Phenom Particlex Battery Desktop Sem Key Features

Conductance Classifications

Users can sort based on particle conductance by assigning a conductance label to each class of particles. This allows users to assess the impact of contamination much more accurately since a small organic contamination is not as severe as a metallic conductive contamination.

Ternary Diagram

A ternary diagram with representations for every particle can be created to see the overall chemistry of the particle population. With Ni, Co, and Mn on each axis, the outyears and general trends can be easily spotted.
