October 2019 – Battery Research using High Resolution ICP-MS

 

In Münster, Germany, an international team of around 140 scientists work on the research and development of innovative electrochemical energy storage devices with high energy density, longer durability and maximum safety. The research center at the Münster University MEET (Münster Electrochemical Energy Technology) has the aim to improve batteries for use in electric cars and stationary energy storage systems. One of the major problems of lithium batteries is the aging and loss of performance over time.

 

Read case study CS30594 how MEET is using the Thermo Scientific™ Element XR™ High Resolution ICP-MS to investigate the ageing mechanisms of batteries.
