Powering Battery Research and Manufacturing

Electron microscopy, spectroscopy, and software solutions across the battery value chain

With superior energy and power density performance compared to other commercially available battery technology, lithium-ion batteries are highly efficient energy storage devices with a market that continues to grow at double-digit rates. Now, the ongoing challenge is developing batteries that are safer, more powerful, longer lasting, more environmentally friendly, and more cost effective.


We work in partnership with the battery industry to provide the electron microscopy, image analysis, and spectroscopy tools you need to characterize and analyze battery materials and components and their performance. Our systems touch every part of the battery value chain, from extraction and processing of raw materials, to quality assurance in the production line, to research and development of new battery designs. Whether you are producing current or improved lithium-ion batteries or designing and testing next-generation battery technologies, Thermo Scientific instruments and software will help you understand their chemistry and maximize their performance and efficiency.
