Beyond Electrochemical Analysis

Microscopy Techniques for Battery Research & Electromobility

We cordially invite you to the workshop series "Technologies for the Evaluation of Materials and Components for Electric Motors and Li-Ion Batteries".

Products with electric motors and Li-ion batteries and their components introduce new challenges to the previous testing technology. Get insight into the latest developments.

Join us for this workshop to discuss how microscopy is being used to help tackle characterization challenges in battery research.

  • Li-ion batteries and electric motors - Research and latest materials
  • Challenges in sample preparation
  • Microscopic methods and structural interpretation
  • Microscopy in process control and quality evaluation

The workshopseries is free of charge and is offered in cooperation with Matworks GmbH, Struers GmbH and ZEISS.
