X-Ray micro-tomography provides a technical solution to this challenge. Understanding the mechanisms of electrode degradation over cycles, means visualizing:
- “In-situ” measurements: produce images during charge & discharge cycles
- 3D rendering results of the electrode on a submicron scale
Work carried out by the MATEIS laboratory, equipped with an EasyTom 160, jointly with the National Institute for Scientific Research (INRS) in Varennes (Canada) has made it possible to improve the electrode manufacturing process and thus reduce electrode degradation during charge and discharge cycles.
