Material Characterization

Electrified mobility starts at the lowest level, characterizing the materials in batteries and fuel cells amongst other components. Advanced materials research is necessary to optimize performance and cost. Highly precise technologies for fundamental research support the different development needs, including increasing capacity needs, ensuring the safe operation, reducing material weight or charging times and enhancing the lifespan.

At HORIBA, we offer a wide range of analytical solutions for fundamental research and industrial quality control. Our measurement technologies contribute to the development of a wide range of components that are essential for the next generation of mobility development, including fuel cells, secondary batteries, sensors and electrical components. Especially our non-destructive sampling and analysis methods for particular research tasks offer a more cost-efficient and safer testing option, e.g. in battery research.

Raman Spectroscopy and Imaging

Raman Imaging and Spectroscopy

Raman microscopy allows the non-destructive, non-contact and in-situ analysis of different materials. It can be utilized to analyze the crystal and molecular structures of battery or fuel cell materials, e.g. to determine structural changes and differences.

X-Ray Fluorescence Analysis

X-Ray Fluorescence Analysis

X-Ray Fluorescence Analysis enables the qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis, whilst providing detailed element distribution images via mapping analysis. The method can also be used to analyze the internal structure of different materials or microscopic foreign substances.

GD Optical Emission Spectrometry

Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry

Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry (GDOES) allows for the ultra-fast elemental depth profile analysis of layered materials. It is applied in R&D and thin film formation evaluation to analyze surface effects and layers.

Particle Characterization

Particle Characterization

The area of Particle Characterization includes different types of analysis, such as particle size and shape, surface area or particle concentration. These methods can for example be applied to track contamination sources or control the size of particle types in electrode molding.
