Impact of Formulation and Slurry Properties on Lithium-ion Electrode Manufacturing

Impact of Formulation and Slurry Properties on Lithium-ion Electrode Manufacturing

The impact of formulation and slurry properties on lithium-ion electrode manufacturing is significant. The combination of materials in the electrodes, including the active material, conductive additive, and binders, plays a crucial role in determining the characteristics and performance of LIBs. Dr. Carl Reynolds, Dr. Mona Faraji Niri, Dr. Marc Francis Hidalgo, Robert Heymer, Dr. Luis … Read more

Bipolar Battery

bipolar solid state cell

The bipolar battery essentially moves the series connections inside the cell. This brings a number of advantages and significant challenges. This is shown very clearly in the Toyota battery technology roadmap [1]. The expectation from Toyota is to deliver the following benefits in 2027-2028: Gambe et al [2] show the bipolar semi-solid state cell and … Read more

How Can Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry Improve Li-ion Battery Performance?

Maintaining battery production quality and improving performance, lifetime, and safety requires application of a variety of analytical techniques. Confirming material composition and purity, ensuring the homogeneity of electrode slurries, detecting defects that can cause short circuits and certifying feedstock materials extracted from recycled batteries are all processes that depend on analytical testing. Investigating the mechanisms … Read more

Using an ECM to Model HiPot Tests

circuit schematic for HiPot test modelling

Author: Siddharth Kurwa A DC high-potential test (HiPot) is used to detect manufacturing defects in the electrode stack/jelly roll. During the test, a high voltage (orders of magnitude higher than the cell operating voltage) is applied to the cell to screen out early-in-life and latent risks from the production cell population. It is preferred to … Read more
