Discover our optimized solutions for battery research at MC 2023 in Darmstadt



From our mobile devices and home energy storage units to vehicles and other transportation applications, batteries—and their capacity to store energy—are critical for a sustainable future. New and improved battery technology is paramount to decreasing our impact on the planet because electric vehicles and sustainable energy sources all require energy storage. While the strategy toward utilization of batteries is set, the ongoing challenge remains to develop batteries that are safer, longer lasting, and more cost-effective.

Electrode particles’ degradation after the cycling process (from the left): anode graphite particle (electrode surface characterization), NMC cathode particles (imaged at the cross section).


Image 3

TOF-SIMS analysis of cathode particles for the battery's fully charged state (analysis in the cross section), where trapped lithium within the particles represents lost active material that is no longer contributing to battery charging.


Image 4

Correlation of Raman spectroscopy data with SEM images of NMC cathode after the cycling process (analysis in the cross section) shows a change in the phase of the particles after cycling and the presence of a particle not fully contributing to the cycling process.

Make advancements in your battery research by leveraging a unique combination of high-current FIB, field-free UHR SEM, and integrated TOF-SIMS.




  • Perform a high-resolution study of anode particles’ degradation using SEM imaging and STEM capabilities, adding the ToF-SIMS technique, and an overview study using Raman spectroscopy.


  • Investigate SEI properties such as its distribution, homogeneity, thickness, and chemical composition using ToF-SIMS for high-sensitivity detection of light elements including lithium.


  • Evaluate electrode cracking and delamination with detailed or large-scale SEM imaging of a cross section through the complete battery cell.


  • Identify chemical contaminants and the by-products of parasitical chemical reactions in electrodes using EDS or ToF-SIMS techniques in 2D or 3D.


  • Carry out a high-resolution study of the porosity and interconnectivity in electrodes and/or separators by 3D tomography or SEM imaging with SE/BSE detection capabilities providing topographical and material contrast.


  • Protect sensitive samples against air or moisture by utilizing an inert gas transfer system.
