Atomic Force Microscopes For Materials

Battery Research: Characterizing the Future E-Book

An introductory e-book on the nanoscale characterization of Li-ion battery materials

This thirty page introductory e-book introduces the main analytical techniques used to characterize Li-ion battery materials. In particular, it focuses on nanoindentation, a very common method for measuring the mechanical properties of materials, and atomic force microscopy (AFM) characterization, which works by ‘touching’ the surface of materials with a mechanical probe to map their topography and properties with nanoscale resolution.

The e-book explains how these techniques and their various modes work, and details how they are used for analyzing battery materials and what kind of information they can produce. It also presents case studies to illustrate how the techniques are being applied by working scientists in the laboratory.

Looking to the future, it explores what new lithium based battery technologies are in the pipeline – including metal, sulfur and air-based technologies – and the specific challenges associated with their characterization.


Readers can expect to:

  • Understand what nanoindentation and AFM characterization can be used for — and how they work — in the field of Li-ion battery research.
  • Learn how working scientists use these techniques to improve and develop new lithium-based battery technologies.
  • Gain new insight into the common challenges of characterizing battery materials at the nanoscale and how these approaches help researchers overcome them.
