    Fundamentals of Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy and Application to Li-Ion Batteries

    Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is a high-information content technique that provides insight into complex systems. EIS has gained tremendous popularity since innovation with the line of Frequency Response Analyzers from Solartron Analytical – but remains intimidating to many users. Join this webinar to gain confidence in your understanding of the technique itself and its application to the Li-Ion battery activity chain. EIS is used to: 1.) study diffusion characteristics and SEI formation during material development, 2.) identify degradation modes, ESR, State-of-Charge during cell characterization, and 3.) rapid grade State-of-Health during modules evaluation.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Fundamentals of data acquisition and data analysis of EIS
    • How EIS theory is applied in practice by beginners and experts
    • The value of EIS as a tool in evaluation of Li-ion batteries
    • How AMETEK’s portfolio meets uniquely defined needs at different points of the value chain

    Cause Analysis for Performance Degradation of LIBs and Analytical Methods for All Solid-State Batteries

    In Part 1, we showcase the analytical approaches of cause analysis for performance degradation of Lithium-Ion Batteries (LIBs). By the combination of electrochemical and teardown analysis, we’ll get you to find the main cause of performance degradation, and help you improve the materials optimized for the charge/discharge conditions.

    Part 2 covers various analytical methods of sulfide/oxide based All Solid-State Batteries (ASSBs), in terms of composition of solid electrolyte, coverage ratio of coating layer on cathode, and component distribution in cells. In addition, brand-new analytical methods such as in situ SEM will be presented, which will expedite your R&D.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Cause analysis for performance degradation of LIBs
    • Comprehensive estimation of performance degradation, and electrochemical and teardown analysis of LIBs
    • Useful analysis for material development/process optimization of ASSBs
    • Use cases for sulfide/oxide based solid electrolyte, and coating layer on cathode
    • Cutting-edge analytical methods: in situ analysis/micro analysis

    The US Electric Vehicle Market – From Niche to the Mainstream

    Sales of battery electrics are growing, with the number of entries seemingly growing too fast relative to projected sales volume. Costs are coming down (albeit not fast enough?), capability is increasing, infrastructure is being developed (albeit not fast enough?), and the target market is becoming more mainstream.

    What needs to happen to facilitate the projected growth?

    We will discuss key products, marketing approaches of the vehicle makers, what potential customers want (and fear), opportunities as battery and electronic technologies evolve, and the products most important to reach high volumes and facilitate company profits.

    We will identify some of the potential winners and losers among the vehicle makers and suppliers, both within the current industry and beyond.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Review of Current Sales and Products, Forecasted to 2025
    • Product Range Moving Across Segments to Target the Mainstream Buyer
    • Regulation in the US and Beyond Is Moving the Market
    • Regulation Matters, But Company Strategies and Consumer Preferences Matter More
    • Trends in Batteries, Range, and Cost

    Adiabatic Calorimetry for Performance and Safety Testing of Li-Ion Batteries

    This presentation describes how Accelerating Rate Calorimetry (ARC®) is the adiabatic method of choice to carry out performance and safety testing on Li-ion batteries. This technique is widely used within the industry to understand the thermal characteristics of cells.

    The theoretical background of the technique is described, with recommendations made across different testing types. Examples are shown across multiple form factors, from coin cells up to small modules.

    Test methods discussed include decomposition tests, nail penetration, overcharge, short circuit, infrared, optical, gas generation and analysis, heat capacity and cycling.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Principle of adiabatic calorimetry for batteries
    • Advantages of this method
    • Discussion of applications and results
    • Recommended testing practices
