Battery manufacturers face quality and process control challenges when battery components need to be inspected without being destroyed, for purposes such as mapping the battery electrode’s microstructure in 3D, its heterogeneities, foil stacking, welding joints, contacts, and their effect on battery aging and performance through several cycles of charging and discharging.

X-ray microscopy and computed tomography are non-destructive evaluation techniques that can generate detailed internal and external views of the full 3D battery microstructure without disassembling the battery. These techniques can be used to reveal critical structural defects in batteries, such as aging mechanisms or mechanical deformation effects, among others. Light and electron microscopy solutions round out the inspection portfolio, supporting surface defect analysis, roughness evaluation, cross-sectional measuring, particle contamination, etc. All of these capabilities speed up product development time, increase cost-effectiveness, and simplify failure analysis and quality inspection of lithium-ion cells and other deliverables of new battery technologies.

Highlights from this session will include:
- ZEISS X-ray CT and Microscopy experts illustrate common inspection applications
- NEV Industry Manufacturing professional shares real-world hurdles
- Panel discusses challenges and solutions
