Features and Benefits of Pulsed RF GD OES for the Characterisation of Electrodes of Li-ion Batteries.
Features and Benefits of Pulsed RF GD OES for the Characterisation of Electrodes of Li-ion Batteries.
A Li-ion battery is a rechargeable battery in which lithium ions move between the anode and the cathode creating an electricity flow. Whether you study new electrodes or coatings behaviors, charge and discharge processes, process controls, or perform comparative studies for Li-ion batteries, Pulsed RF Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry is a valuable companion tool.
H&D Measurement of Hydrogen (and Deuterium) by RF GDOES
H&D Measurement of Hydrogen (and Deuterium) by RF GDOES
RF GD OES is well known for ultra fast elemental depth profile of thin and thick films. All elements can be measured including Hydrogen (H) which is important in many application fields - for corrosion studies, for PV, in metallurgy, for the development of hydrogen storage materials and for all polymeric coatings studies to name a few. The most sensitive emission line for H is in the VUV range at 121,567 nm.
GDOES, the Analytical Companion Tool for Magnetron Sputtering Deposition
GDOES, the Analytical Companion Tool for Magnetron Sputtering Deposition
Pulsed RF GDOES is a companion analytical tool for magnetron sputtering deposition. Magnetron sputtering is a type of Plasma Vapour Deposition. The vacuum chamber of the PVD coating machine is filled with an inert gas, such as argon. By applying a high voltage (RF, HIPIMS etc), a glow discharge is created, resulting in acceleration of ions to the target surface and a plasma coating. The argon-ions will eject sputtering materials from the target surface (sputtering), resulting in a sputtered coating layer on the products in front of the target.
