Do you want reliable tools to predict battery electrode quality and performance in development and production? Do you want to reduce scrap and increase process yield? The use of appropriate analytical technologies can allow you to accelerate electrode design based on new formulations and processes, and reliably control product quality. Rigaku and Micromeritics will together show how X-ray and physical textural analysis technologies can provide reliable determinations of density, elemental purity, surface area, porosity, and crystal structure that are essential to a high-quality anode or cathode.
You will learn:
- Effective tools for measuring critical quality attributes of density, elemental purity, surface area, porosity, and crystal structure for cathodes and anodes
- Basic principles of operation and examples of: XRD, XRF, X-ray CT, gas adsorption, mercury intrusion porosimetry, gas pycnometry
Who should attend:
- R&D scientists who want to speed-up development and transfer to production
- Analytical chemists who want to know how to choose the correct technique for each measurement
- Production engineers who need effective tools for process control
Dr Katharina Peikert
Technology and Application Consultant, Micromeritics Instrument Corporation
Dr. Katharina Peikert studied chemistry at the University of Hamburg. The area of materials science fascinated her already during her main studies. Her PhD under Prof. Michael Fröba has taken her into the world of porous materials, where she has focused on the synthesis and characterization of nanoporous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for the specific storage and release of nitric oxide. In 2016, Dr. Peikert joined the German Micromeritics team and since then she supports our customers with her experience in the characterization of porous materials.
Dr. Stephan Wollstadt
Applications Scientist, Rigaku
Dr. Stephan Wollstadt graduated from Technical University of Darmstadt in the field of Materials Science. His PhD thesis was focused on the development of fluorinated oxide materials for cathode applications in solid oxide fuel cells and other electrochemical systems. The easy to apply method of powder x-ray diffraction was a centerpiece of his thesis and with its help, he was able to perform insightful structural analysis and thermodynamic calculations. Stephan joind in early 2022 the application team of Rigaku Europe SE as a specialist for powder x-ray diffraction and Rietveld refinement.
