Improved battery technology is essential to support next-generation electronic devices, reliable and affordable electric vehicles, and to allow time-shifting of renewable energy sources like wind and solar. Common themes in battery R&D are to increase energy and power density and to decrease cost.
Important insights can be gained from analysis at the nanoscale, but many common techniques struggle to do so, especially under conditions where the battery is operating. Here, Asylum Research atomic force microscopes (AFMs) are uniquely well suited because of their ultra-high resolution, exceptional environmental control capabilities, and versatile electrochemical cell accessories.
