From Sample Preparation to 3D Reconstruction and Quantification
Li-ion battery electrodes consist of active material, binder and carbon additives. As these three components and the respective interfaces influence for example the charge transfer reactions and thus the capacity of the battery, it is of major interest to understand their detailed properties in depth.
For reliable results it is crucial to master the sample preparation, to understand the image processing algorithms and optimize the reconstruction procedure.
In this webinar Stefanie Freitag from ZEISS will first give an introduction about existing advanced microscopic techniques for battery research including the presentation of possibilities for in-situ observations. In the second part Dr. Jochen Joos from KIT will explain his established workflow from sample preparation to 3D reconstruction and describe hurdles and solutions concerning image processing.
