Beschreibung:

Information about the electric nanostructure is crucial in the development of the materials for future energy storage. In this webinar we will discuss the application of conductive atomic force microscopy (C-AFM) for the characterization of materials for batteries, fuel cells, and microelectronics. C-AFM is a helpful tool for understanding the nanoscale electrical phenomena within cathode materials in order to optimize the performance of lithium-ion batteries. We also show examples of C-AFM for investigating the correlation of conductivity with topography for bipolar plates for fuel cells as well for investigating the distribution of conductive and isolating regions for thick film resistors.
