Battery Testing Workshop

This workshop is for those working in battery research and development. Find out more about the technologies and techniques available for battery testing and analysis:

Focussing on battery testing in R&D to improve capacity, discharge rates and cycle life, the workshop will discuss best practices in:

  • High accuracy DC measurement techniques
    eg cyclic voltammetry and constant-current charge-discharge with optional voltage hold.
  • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) tests
    Including the comparison of Galvanostatic EIS and Potentiostatic EIS in diagnostics and the complexities that can arise.
  • Advanced understanding of the electrochemical system
    The potentiostat, cable and software – for improved experiment design and confidence in your results.

There will be talks and presentations in the morning, followed by hands-on demonstrations in the afternoon. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Battery Testing Workshop: Live Demos

Talks and Presentations

The full list of invited speakers is to be confirmed – currently there will be presentations from:

  • Dr Carmen Murphy, Johnson Matthey
  • Dr Gareth Hinds, NPL
  • Dr John Harper, Ametek
  • Dr Rob Sides, Ametek
  • … plus more invited speakers TBC

Learn about new technology from specialists at Solartron Analytical and Princeton Applied Research, including:

  • Battery cycler technology currently under development.
  • New PMC-200 module for the PARSTAT MC, which doubles the capacity of each module with two potentiostats per card.

Hands On Demonstrations

There’s no better way to learn about testing techniques than trying them out for yourself. Small group demonstrations in the afternoon will give you the opportunity to see the testing process and results, and ask any questions you may have.
