Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are used in many electronic devices and newly developed electric vehicles. The performance of a battery depends on many factors, including the structure of the cathode and anode. The characteristics of the cathode and the anode active materials are essential to understanding the ion mobility in the material. Raman spectroscopy provides chemical specificity and the ability to monitor structural changes occurring in analyzed materials. Fast and noncontact, Raman spectroscopy also allows one to follow changes in a battery cell during the charge and discharge cycle.
What you will learn:
In this webinar, we will present the Raman spectra of commonly used metal oxides, NMC and LFP; discuss the effect of the measurement conditions; and explore chemical imaging of the electrodes (active materials, binder, carbon, etc.)
You will also discover also how Raman spectroscopy may be applied for quality control (QC) of battery materials processing. We will showcase a complete workflow for analyzing the degree of carbon coating and defects in electrode materials, from sample preparation to Raman acquisition, data analysis to final reporting.
