ADVANCED IMAGING AND DIFFRACTION TOOLS FOR TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY
BATTERIES & ENERGY
Understanding the Li insertion /extraction mechanism at microscopic level is important to design next generation batteries. Orientation and phase mapping with ASTAR sheds light to the mechanism of Li insertion/extraction down to nanometer level where 3D electron diffraction tomography can help to structurally characterize phases formed in battery materials.
