X-ray Nanotomography for Advanced Materials and Battery Research Applications

Aging of battery materials is a process that results in reduced performance. This can manifest itself in reduced capacity, which means that the amount of charge that can be stored in a battery is reduced. Simply put, our electric car will not go as far as it did when it was new. However, the processes responsible for this happen on a very small scale - in the micro- to nanometer range.

Understanding these processes requires highly specialized analytical techniques such as electron and X-ray microscopy. X-ray microscopy has established itself as a key characterization method in materials science due to its non-destructive 3D imaging capabilities.
By combining these different techniques, it is possible to gain a deeper understanding of aging processes from the component level down to the material level.

This webinar will highlight advances in X-ray microscopy made possible by new developments in instrument hardware, followed by a customer presentation on the application of these techniques to battery research.

Adrian Mikitisin Correlative X-ray and Electron Microscopy for Investigating Aging Processes in Batteries

Adrian Mikitisin is a research associate at the Central Facility for Electron Microscopy (GFE) at RWTH Aachen University. He completed his PhD in the field of damage analysis with a focus on microstructural changes in steel materials at the same institution, where he previously studied materials science. His work primarily involved electron microscopy (EM), covering the full spectrum of SEM and TEM techniques. Since 2022, Adrian Mikitisin has been managing an analytical laboratory at the Center for Ageing, Reliability, and Lifetime Prediction of Electrochemical and Power Electronic Systems (CARL) at RWTH Aachen University. He was also responsible for setting up and establishing the laboratory. His current research focuses on energy materials, investigating aging processes in the battery sector. In addition to electron microscopy techniques, he now also employs X-ray microscopy (XRM). By combining EM methods with XRM, one can create a unique correlative workflow that significantly enhances the understanding of material processes.
