On-Demand Webinar

The rising demand of energy and the technological transformation of our energy systems require new and better battery materials. The success of the electric vehicle and the introduction of alternative energy sources are highly dependent on new batteries with higher energy density and longer life-time. Lithium-ion batteries are the actual state of technology, with a lot of potential for improvement and research beyond the lithium-ion technology, such as magnesium and sodium. The key for development is in new materials and the improvement of existing materials for better anodes, cathodes, separators and electrolytes. However, before using these new materials in commercial batteries, it is necessary to characterize and test them in a laboratory environment.

This webinar introduces the basics of characterizing battery materials and the special equipment required to run these tests. We will specifically cover:

  • Basics of testing battery materials:
    • 2 vs. 3 electrode measurements
    • Optical in situ measurements

  • Exemplary case studies:
    • PAT-Series test cells
    • An in situ test cell for Raman spectroscopy.
