    Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) in Solid-State Battery Development – A Novel and Cost-Effective Approach

    Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is a method widely used across industry to deposit a very thin layer of a material on a surface to alter its properties. The technique has been utilized in various areas of battery research, including solid-state batteries.

    A key challenge with solid state batteries is the high impedance at the interface between the cathode and the electrolyte. PVD is ideally suited to develop model systems to study and look to improve this problem.

    PVD also allows high throughput screening of different materials to accelerate new composition developments with enhanced electrochemical properties.

    The HEX series of PVD instruments has some key benefits for battery research. It is a cost-effective solution that is mounted below an existing glovebox, allowing continued use of the glovebox for other purposes and easy access to the vacuum chamber for modification and cleaning. The highly modular nature allows configuration changes without specialist tools, enabling changes in research direction without additional costs.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • PVD techniques are a valuable tool in a wide spectrum of battery research
    • Develop model systems to study interfacial phenomena
    • High throughput screening of different materials to accelerate new composition developments with enhanced electrochemical properties
    • Introduction to the HEX series of PVD instrument and its unique advantages for research

    Advances in Battery Performance and Safety Testing using Calorimetry

    This presentation describes two main types of calorimetric techniques that can be used to carry out performance and safety testing on high-energy batteries.

    The first half of the presentation introduces isothermal calorimetry; focused on the new IBCx system from Thermal Hazard Technology (THT). Method of operation, hardware overview and examples of data will be presented.

    The second half of the presentation covers battery testing methods for the ARC adiabatic calorimeter system. The theoretical background of the test method will be described, and new developments to address blade-type batteries and high ampere-hour cells will be presented.

    The presentation also mentions complementary test methods and optional modules that can be integrated with calorimetry to provide more useful analysis. For example; fast-tracking heaters, online gas analysis etc.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Principles of isothermal and adiabatic calorimetry testing for high-energy batteries
    • Advantages and limitations of these two methods
    • New product developments from THT to address market test requirements
    • Discussion of THT lab testing results

    Detailed Approaches for Post-Mortem Analysis of Lithium Ion Batteries

    Performance degradation of Lithium Ion Batteries (LIBs) is an important problem not only battery users, but also for battery manufacturers and material suppliers. In this webinar, we will present two topics related to the Post-Mortem analysis of LIBs – one is the performance degradation of SiO anode, and the other is a detailed procedure for the quantitative analysis of electrolyte decomposition and SEI formation on graphite negative electrode.

    Toray Research Center can provide detailed and comprehensive data analysis of chemical and morphological changes, using latest instruments, to support material and product performance improvements. Customers can utilize the data set to investigate what may have happened inside the battery, and can correlate the performance degradation with that data analysis.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Lithium Ion battery
    • Post-Mortem analysis
    • SiO anode
    • Electrolyte degradation and SEI formation
    • Morphological observation and Composition analysis
