TITLE: Microscopy for Materials Research – Energy Materials
SPEAKER: Andy Holwell, Manager, Business Sector Industrial Research
So much attention is paid to battery integration and battery management, and some to cathode materials, but these are only part of the story of the battery revolution. Innovation and scale-up are needed in all the component parts; what will be the perfect combination of cathode, anode, electrolyte, separator, and binder material? Which has a head start? What do they look like under the microscope, and how do we truly understand them by imaging and characterizing them in high resolution in 2D and 3D?
Advances in microscopy allow us to image and understand these materials, and what they look like under the microscope down to the nanometer scale.
In this webinar, attendees will learn about:
· How studying a battery's microstructure helps make better batteries
· Materials innovations that are driving the development of battery technology
· Materials characterization that is needed to evaluate the battery materials of the future
