Lithium-ion Batteries; The Future of Batteries is Here

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are an advanced battery technology which have four major components: anode, cathode, separator, and electrolyte.

At Micromeritics we have instrumentation for all stages of battery production starting from the raw material precursors to the final battery cell. Our world leading analytical equipment offers convenient solutions to realize your RD, quality assurance, manufacturing, and quality control needs to revolutionize the future of lithium-ion batteries.

What We Do Best in Li-ion Batteries:

Surface Area:

  • Understanding the porosity of the electrode materials is important to guarantee the right ion accessibility and charging speed.
  • BET surface area, pore volume and pore size distribution help to optimize your battery components.

Density:

  • High T.A.P. density of precursors is expected to obtain a high volumetric energy density.
  • The true density is a good indicator of purity and composition of the cathode which can be used to improve the overall performance of the battery.

Porosity:

  • Understanding the porosity of the electrode materials is important to guarantee the right ion accessibility and charging speed.

Particle Size:

  • The SediGraph is the only instrument that can precisely report weight percent of particles <0.1μm.
  • Optimize particle size ratio of cathode and solid electrolyte to maximize the energy density.

Powder Flow:

  • Understanding a powder’s Specific Energy, an indicator of inter-particular friction and mechanical interlocking, can help reduce agglomerates in the electrode slurry.
  • Determining and optimizing Permeability, a measure of a powder’s ability to release air, can improve slurry dispersion and cavity filling in wet or dry systems.
