The increasing demand for electric vehicles and consumer electronics in recent years has caused Li-ion batteries to attract significant attention due to their high energy and power density compared to other commercial rechargeable battery technologies. To gain the fundamental understanding of how the battery’s structure and performance align in different stages of the lifecycle, researchers conduct imaging and analysis at multiple length scales and in 3D. 3D imaging is necessary to provide a complete geometric evolution of the electrode microstructure upon cycling.
