Webinar: AFM in Smart Energy Generation Research 17/10/17
Join Bruker for a webinar on Tuesday 17th October 2017 about how nanoscale characterisation using AFM can accelerate Smart Energy Research.
Energy Generation and Storage Research
Nanoscale characterisation with AFM can provide useful insights into the performance of materials and devices used in smart energy generation, including lithium batteries and fuel cells.
Recent advances in Atomic Force Microscopy technology have made it possible to perform routine quantitative mapping of nanomechanical properties, to identify materials within complex composite structures. Correlative electrical properties can be mapped, including:
- Work function
- Spreading resistance
- Piezo response
- …and more
New technology developed this year has extended these capabilities to work in solution and electrochemical environments, for a greater understanding of phenomena including battery degradation, crack formation in SEI and quantification of charge performances.
This interactive webinar will explain the latest developments, with case studies and selected high impact publications.
- New advances enabling routine, quantifiable modulus, deformation and adhesion mapping.
- How simultaneous electrical property mapping can now be performed in liquid and electrochemical environments.
- Battery research case studies, including SEI evolution and correlating cathode micro-structure to battery performance
The webinar is for academics and industrialists evaluating new methods for energy-related research projects, as well as researchers already using AFM.
The live webinar will be on Tuesday 17th October 2017 from 9-10:30am CEST. Register on Bruker’s website, and you’ll receive a link to attend.
