Batteries are ubiquitous in modern life and our reliance on them has never been greater. The primary objectives of current battery design strategy include a long service life, a multitude of complete charging and discharging cycles, and a continuous release of the stored electric energy. For the development, the manufacturing and the use of the most varied of batteries, knowledge of key mechanisms and material properties plays a decisive role.
The analytical capabilities of Malvern Panalytical and NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing can be applied to broad areas of the battery manufacturing process. In a two-part webinar series on March 11, 2021, the two companies will present their collaboration, potential applications and answer your questions!
In the first session, our experts on battery explain fundamentals of the development and manufacturing control of batteries. In addition, they introduce proven methods and instruments used to develop new materials and ensure optimum battery performance. These include:
- Better Batteries with the Aid of XRD – The Use of XRD in the Characterization of Battery Materials – By Marco Sommariva
- How Particle Size Effects Battery Properties – By Maximilian Münzner
- Rheological Properties of Battery Slurries – By Torsten Remmler
- Thermal Behavior with Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Battery Cycling with Multiple Module Calorimetry (MMC) – By Dr. Ekkehard Füglein
In the afternoon, we are moving from theory to practical experience. In four live demonstrations, battery experts from Malvern Panalytical and NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing will show how to prepare samples, measure these samples and evaluate the results with the respective software solution.
