Battery/Energy Storage Analysis
Pack more power into longer-lasting energy sources
Longer-lasting energy sources and batteries continue to be pivotal for many industries, particularly the automotive industry.
Avenues of investigation surrounding energy often focus on lithium-ion batteries, solar cells, fuel cells and other sources of energy storage and conduction. Through application notes and webinars, we’ll demonstrate how to analyze the battery/energy storage component using critical technologies like Raman and XPS, as well as XRF and XRD. Rheometry can also be utilized for the mechanical analysis of electrode coating materials and printing pastes for solar panels.
