In-operando X-ray diffraction (XRD) on a pouch cell battery

Video   Jun 16, 2020


Often X-ray synchrotron or neutron radiation-based methods are used to study Lithium-ion batteries. While neutron scattering is very sensitive to light elements such as Li, X-ray powder diffraction provides a much higher resolution of the cell parameters and therefore both are complementary techniques.

Pouch cell batteries can be used in combination with hard X-rays in transmission geometry to perform in-situ and in-operando studies during charge/discharge cycles and for aging studies. It is then possible to correlate variations in the crystallographic structure of the elements in the cell, directly with the amount of Lithium incorporated in the electrodes.

This video shows a demonstration of how to set up in operando XRD experiments on full batteries.

Why don’t we have baby formula that’s just as good as breast milk? Sam at ACS Reactions chats with chemist Dr Steven Townsend, who’s trying to figure out which sugar molecules in breast milk make it so unique and difficult to recreate in the lab.


Making of Neoma MC-ICP-MS


For scientists whose research requires high-precision isotope ratio data in fields of cosmo- and geochemistry, geochronology and biology, nuclear safeguards, forensics, metalomics, and provenance studies, we have created a new multicollector ICP-MS. Designed and developed in Bremen, building on the strengths of our multi-collector platform with field-proven technologies such as RPQ, 10^13 ohm Amplifier Technology and Jet Interface.
