    Date/Time: Wednesday, June 23 at 11 AM EDT


    Title: 3D Imaging of Lithium-ion Batteries

    Advances in 3D imaging with x-rays and electron microscopes are enabling scientists and engineers to improve failure analysis and better understand the relationship between performance and structure. A detailed understanding how the 3D structure impacts the performance and how this structure changes upon cycling, is needed to optimize current battery designs and to develop next-generation battery materials.


    In this webinar, attendees will learn from case studies about:

    • Nondestructive imaging of large battery cells
    • Failures in battery cells such as voids in electrodes, foreign material, electrode overhang, and housing/connector welding issues
    • Structure-performance relationship in a thick cathode battery
    • Porosity in the battery polymer separator
    • Dendrite formation in a solid-state battery
