Lithium ion batteries

Lithium ion batteries are a ubiquitous feature of modern technology, playing a crucial role in everything from handheld consumer electronics to electric vehicles. As these batteries become increasingly more advanced, so do the manufacturing processes required to create them. Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a broad range of tools and instruments for the production of advanced battery technology. Our systems touch every part of battery manufacturing, from the extraction and processing of raw materials, to quality assurance in the production line, to the research and development of the next generation of batteries.

Explore the categories below to see how Thermo Fisher Scientific is enabling the latest advances in battery technology.

Advanced Battery Technology


Battery structure characterization

Battery materials science

Investigate the structural and chemical characteristics of batteries across a range of scales in both 2D and 3D. Visualize battery samples from their cell-level architecture to their atomic structure.

Battery degradation

Battery degradation insights

By using Ion Chromatography, scientist can gain insights into the fundamental processes and degradation mechanisms in lithium-ion batteries to ensure product quality during manufacturing.

Thickness and Basis Weight Measurement

Battery thickness and basis weight measurement

Our measurement and control systems provide precise measurement of electrode coatings, separator films, and calendared electrodes. The combination of sensor accuracy, reporting, and innovative measurement ensures efficient production of high-quality batteries. 

Laboratory equipment

Lab equipment for battery manufacturing

From vacuum ovens, to water bath circulators and chillers, to electrochemistry  and water purification systems, we offer a full range of lab equipment for battery manufacturing, supporting production and testing, quality assurance, and failure analysis.


Trace element analysis

Battery composition and purity

Materials within a battery require elemental analysis to ensure the composition and purity before use, since the presence of impurities significantly degrades the charge-carry capacity of the battery.

Laboratory supply

Laboratory information management systems (LIMS)

Our digital capabilities enable the latest advances in battery technology, providing complete sample traceability, data integrity, statistical quality control, and instrument/system connectivity across the battery value chain.

Trace element analysis

Quantify electrolyte aging

By identifying and quantifying compounds formed during electrolyte aging, GC-MS systems can provide new insight into Li-ion battery degradation.
