THE SUSTAINABLE GLOBAL ECONOMY RUNS ON BATTERIES 

Advances in battery technologies are at the forefront of a sustainable global economy, and refinements that further reduce the cost and optimize the performance of batteries are essential. SRC, through our technology partner suppliers, provides laboratories pursuing these refinements with pivotal technologies for battery R&D and QA/QC. Please keep reading to learn more about instrumentation from SRC and our innovative suppliers.

OXFORD INSTRUMENTS

OXFORD INSTRUMENTS

Electrolytes are a key component in battery performance. Oxford Instruments’ benchtop NMR technology can quickly and easily distinguish between the diffusion behavior of different electrolyte
solvents and help characterize important parameters such as conductivity and ion transference. For battery R&D, the Oxford Instruments X-Pulse Broadband Benchtop NMR Spectrometer provides critical data for electrolyte design.To learn more, click here to download the X-Pulse Application Note 20

PHYSICAL ELECTRONICS

PHYSICAL ELECTRONICS

X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) from Physical Electronics (PHI) is an important tool for
battery material research and development. XPS can provide insights into battery performance at realistic operating conditions, and help determine the precise location of interfaces between battery components. Electronic band structure of organic and inorganic materials can also be characterized using XPS.To learn more, click here to download the PHI XPS Battery Characterization Application Note.

NANOSURF

NANOSURF

The Flex AFM Atomic Force Microscope from Nanosurf can be used to characterize the surface topography of battery materials and components. The AFM tip can also be made electrically active and
used as a probe for nanoscale conductive/ resistive pathways. Measurements can be done within an
electrochemical cell to passively observe changes due to charge/discharge events.To learn more, click here to download the Nanosurf Flex AFM Brochure

WITEC

WITEC

Raman Imaging Systems from WITec provide comprehensive battery material characterization.
Raman imaging can highlight the distribution of electrolyte and electrode materials and investigate
their crystallinity.To learn more, click here to download the WITec Alpha300 R Brochure.

BROOKHAVEN INSTRUMENTS

BROOKHAVEN INSTRUMENTS-2

Battery particle charge (zeta potential) can affect slurry production and stability. The Brookhaven
Instruments NanoBrook Omni provides fast, routine measurement of submicron particle size and zeta
potential. This technology will help you understand sedimentation and agglomeration.To learn more, click here to download the NanoBrook Omni Brochure

AMBIVALUE

Battery AMBIVALUE

AmbiValue’s EyeTech™ Particle Size and Shape Analyzer provides fast and accurate particle size and
shape analysis. Particle morphology is key for achieving optimal battery performance because particle shape affects slurry rheology, electrode coating density, porosity and uniformity.To learn more, click here to download the EyeTech Brochure
