Battery Innovation through advanced structural, chemical and mechanical characterisation

Coventry Transport Museum, Wednesday 25th April 10:00 – 16:00

Event Highlights

This interactive workshop highlights how different characterisation techniques combine to address the development, performance and degradation challenges for lithium-ion and solid-state batteries.

  • Discover how characterisation techniques accelerate battery development
  • Explore how correlative methods can predict lifetime and degradation
  • Network with academics and industrialists at the cutting edge of battery innovation

Presentations on key topics identified by our battery customers

  • Understanding the effects of Secondary Electrode Interphases (SEI)
  • Quantifying kinetically and thermodynamically driven electrochemical processes
  • Correlating crystalline structure and mechanical properties to capacity and failure
  • Relating anode and cathode nanoscale materials properties to battery energy density

Characterisation techniques for battery R&D and failure analysis

Battery applications of selected characterisation methods being discussed include:

Atomic Force Microscopy – correlative nanoscale electrical, electrochemical, and morphological properties of cathodes, quantifying SEI growth and capacity loss from cracking

NMR Spectroscopy – atomic level insights in kinetic and thermodynamic process during electrochemical cell cycling

FTIR Spectroscopy – characterises mechanistic pathways at the cathode (ATR with EC cell)

X-ray Diffraction – understanding lithium ion migration processes and state of battery charge

Micro-CT – tomographic studies of cathode porosity and ageing phenomena

Nanomechanical testing – electrode creep/stress, phase separation and delamination of separators

Who should participate this event?

  • Scientists/engineers working on batteries, fuel cells and smart energy
  • Faraday Institution, automotive sector and supply chain
  • Individuals looking to exploit current funding opportunities

Event Venue

The Coventry transport museum with extensive displays of past and future technologies will be open for delegates before and after the event and has excellent road and rail access. Bruker look forward to your participation in this highly topical workshop.
