Faraday Institution Battery Characterisation Project

13/09/2021, 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Faraday Institution Battery Characterisation Project: new, novel techniques for the advanced characterisation of battery materials

This event showcases several new, cutting-edge, analytical techniques developed for the improved characterisation of battery materials. These techniques provide new measurement capabilities and enhanced options for in-situ studies and measurements under operando conditions. The day will include presentations on advanced imaging techniques, high resolution combined imaging and chemical speciation measurements, and will include discussion of optimised sample preparation for the study of highly reactive battery materials. The presentations will include experimental case studies of these techniques applied to current and topical battery chemistry materials.

In-person ticket applications have now closed. Lunch and refreshments will be provided to in-person ticket holders, but any accommodation needs should be booked directly by you. (FI Researchers and Steering Group will be able to claim their accommodation expenses up to £100).

Any researchers can apply for an online ticket, where the closing date for registration is 8th September.
