ZEISS Battery Workshop 2023

Learning event on Thursday,
August 31st in Dublin, California

Battery research and quality assurance solutions

ZEISS eMobility Solutions and Materials Science

Batteries play an important role in the performance and longevity of the devices in which they are used. Optimizing a battery means understanding its structure on multiple scales. Safety, service life, performance, and cost are essential to ensuring the success of battery technologies. These factors need to be addressed every step of the way, from R&D, raw material processing, production to assembly.

For the one-day event on August 31st, 2023, we will discuss practical applications of ZEISS microscopy technology to all aspects of battery research, development and production. The keynote address will be given by guest speaker Celina Mikolajczak, Chief Battery Technology Officer at Lyten, who has an extensive history of working in the automotive, stationary, and consumer electronics lithium-ion battery industries.

Arrive for the reception, greeting and refreshments at 8:00 am. The Welcome address begins at 8:45 am.
