Carbon

In the dynamic landscape of the energy sector, carbon stands as a key element with immense potential for revolutionizing energy storage. From traditional fossil fuels to cutting-edge carbon nanotubes, every form of carbon plays a crucial role in advancing energy storage devices.

From traditional fossil fuels to cutting-edge carbon nanotubes, and including carbon reinforcing composites and semiconductors, carbon in all its forms plays a crucial role in advancing energy storage devices.

However, harnessing this potential requires continuous research, innovative manufacturing processes, and sustainable recycling solutions.

HORIBA provides a full characterization of carbon materials to solve the key challenges of R&D and Quality Control:

  • Precise characterization of carbon materials to optimize energy storage and conversion processes;
  • Understanding the complex structure-property relationships of different carbon forms and ensuring consistency and reliability in manufacturing;
  • Developing carbon-based materials and technologies with minimal environmental impact;
  • Accurate testing and analysis methods to validate material properties and product integrity.

Efficiently storing and releasing energy without significant losses, mitigating air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, and scaling up technologies while maintaining cost-effectiveness are paramount.

Overcoming these challenges requires innovative research, technological advancements, and a shift towards cleaner and more sustainable energy solutions.

HORIBA Solutions for Carbon

Various techniques can be used to characterize carbon.

Raman and AFM-Raman spectroscopy can be used for:

  • Characterization of the different forms of carbon (with QCarbon)
  • 2D material structure
  • Graphene – (Layers, defects..)
  • Carbon nanotubes – (Diameter, chirality, doping..)
  • DLC coating properties – (Diamond quality and provenance)
     

The particle size distribution and surface area of carbon materials influence their electrochemical performance, while in catalysts, the pore structure and surface morphology affect catalytic activity, that is why particle characterization are so important.

The elemental analyzers can measure impurities of carbon materials as well as the concentration of the carbon in the carbon material.

ICP-OES coupled with ETV (Electrothermal Vaporization) can measure simultaneously the ultra-trace and major elements without sample preparation.
