Advances in XPS Analysis of Battery Materials Webinar

Presented by Sarah Zaccarine, Ph. D., Staff Scientist

Registration for webinar

Energy storage (batteries, capacitors) and conversion (solar cells) systems are increasing demand for vehicles, mobile electronics, and other areas as alternatives to fossil fuels. These systems are multi-layered, complex systems with many materials and interfaces that are difficult to handle and characterize. To optimize materials properties and improve battery lifetimes, there is a pressing need for physicochemical characterization approaches with air-free handling capabilities, high spatial resolution, analyzing buried interfaces without damaging the chemistry, and the need to bridge the gap by in situ and operando surface analysis.

Developments in X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometers open up new capabilities to address these challenges. PHI Genesis - fully automated multi-technique scanning XPS/HAXPES microprobe - provides a variety of operating modes and analytical accessories to enable thorough characterization of battery materials.

In this webinar, we will discuss how we can address many of the challenges of analyzing battery materials using:

  • inert environment transfer vessel;
  • microprobe X-ray source with <5 µm spatial resolution for 100 % certainty of small area spectroscopic analysis and chemical mapping;
  • the hard X-ray source and cluster ion gun source for analyzing buried interfaces;
  • in situ energy gap measurements, and
  • operando XPS experiments for a direct link between chemistry and performance.
