In our mobile society, we heavily rely on portable energy sources, leading to driving improvements in battery technology. Although lithium-ion batteries offer the highest energy density among present commercial rechargeable batteries, the technology is still evolving and improving. Raman spectroscopy is a very versatile analytical tool that can be used to analyze the diverse materials that are used in lithium-ion batteries.

This presentation will illustrate how the structural and chemical information obtained from Raman spectroscopy can be applied to the analysis of lithium-ion battery components, including cathodes, anodes and electrolytes.

Key Learning Objectives

  • How Raman spectroscopy can be applied to the analysis of lithium-ion battery materials
  • The type of structural and chemical information that Raman spectroscopy can supply
  • Examples of the analysis of cathode, anode, and electrolyte materials

Who Should Attend?

  • Researchers who develop and study new materials for lithium ion batteries
  • Individuals who are interested in a powerful spectroscopic method for the analysis of the chemical and structural properties of materials
