Characterizing Battery Material to Ensure Optimal Performance

Characterizing Battery Material to Ensure Optimal Performance

Research, development, and utilization of lithium-ion batteries is one of the fastest-growing industrial segments in the world. Numerous products, including phones, laptops, pacemakers, drones, cars, and now even airplanes, rely on batteries for power. Ensuring batteries are safe, powerful, and reliable is more critical than ever before.

However, the safety, performance, and lifetime of a battery will only be as good as the materials that go into making it. Specifically, the electrodes, separators, current collectors, and electrolytes need to be fully characterized and monitored from the time they enter the production facility until they are incorporated into the final product. In this webinar we will be discussing Anton Paar’s solutions to characterize the battery material and their correlation with the battery performances. We will cover - 

  • Role of surface area and porosity in characterizing battery materials
  • Impact of solid electrode material’s particle size on battery performance
  • Characterization of separator using Capillary flow porometery
  • Rheological characterization and flow behavior of electrode slurries
