Enhance Battery Cell Performance Through In-Operando Thermal Analysis

A Guide to Predictive Thermo-Electrochemical Characterization of Battery Cells

As batteries are pushed to accommodate increasing demand and new capabilities, battery research and development must keep apace with new breakthroughs without sacrificing quality. In particular, new battery chemistries need greater efficiency, safety, and stability. From choosing the right materials to predicting long-term battery behavior, each stage of development benefits from reliable, efficient diagnostic thermo-electrochemical characterization.

Leading battery research, development, and quality control teams have adopted in-situ and in-operando isothermal microcalorimetry to measure their batteries’ parasitic heat during cycling. Measuring parasitic thermal reactions offers insight into a battery’s efficiency and underlying chemistry. This eBook offers a foundational introduction to in-operando isothermal microcalorimetry, featuring real experiment examples from labs around the world embracing this technique in their battery research. After reading this eBook, you’ll be empowered to answer key questions, including:

  • How can I measure the thermal management of my battery cell?
  • Which electrolyte additives will support improved performance?
  • How can I formulate active materials for better batteries?
  • When will my battery fail?
  • Is my battery quality verified by data?

The studies in this eBook demonstrate in-operando thermal analysis for efficient, successful battery development and quality assurance. Complete the form to the right for free access to this valuable resource.
