|Thermo Scientific helps innovate in dry or low-solvent electrode manufacturing. The twin-screw extruder compounds
anode material with minimized solvent addition. The highly viscous pastes are processed into pellets which are easily
transported and stored without aging. The pellets can later be coated onto collector foil and calendared in one step.

|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.

|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.

|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.
