A Li-ion battery is a rechargeable battery in which lithium ions move between the anode and the cathode creating an electricity flow.
The chemical reactions do not simply take place at the surface of the electrodes but rather affect depths of several tens of micrometers. Pulsed RF Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry provides Ultra Fast Elemental Depth Profiling of thin and thick films and has been successfully applied for the characterisation of both positive and negative electrodes of Li ion batteries.
HORIBA Scientific has more than 15 references world wide in this field. Most results obtained are protected by Non Disclosure Agreement and cannot be communicated. We therefore invite people interested in the technique to contact us so that we could also describe more in depth, the unique proprietary features of our instrument and set up some performance tests.
