This webinar will explore the use of NMR and analytical electron microscopy to better understand the material properties that govern the performance of Li-ion and Na-ion batteries.
You will learn how these techniques ensure battery safety and performance through quality control of electrode precursor material and final electrodes as well as the liquid (or solid) electrolyte that sits between them. You will also learn how simple NMR techniques can guide your development of new electrolytes and how electron microscopy techniques can help you improve next generation cathode materials through understanding their microscopic grain structure.
By the end of the webinar, you will have learnt:
- About key material challenges facing current battery technologies
- How materials characterisation improves safety and lowers cost of current battery technologies
- How detailed characterisation is crucial to engineering the performance of future battery technology
