Microscopy for emerging technologies: case studies of energy storage materials and 3D-printed components

Register for this webinar by Logging In or Signing Up below.

The webinar will discuss the application of high-resolution microscopy techniques including X-ray microscopy, optical microscopy, scanning electron and focused ion beam microscopy to the characterization and analysis of energy storage materials and components fabricated via selective laser melting (SLM).

In a first part, Dr Timo Bernthaler will demonstrate how this array of techniques enables investigation of microstructural features at different scales, ranging from layer thickness, particle size and homogeneity in Lithium-ion batteries. This demonstrates how microscopy is increasingly becoming crucial to understanding aging and degradation mechanisms.

In a second part, Tim Schubert will introduce the principles of additive manufacturing via SLM and demonstrate how microscopy highlights the direct link between microstructural defects, e.g. pores or inhomogeneities in the microstructure of 3D-printed components fabricated with steel, aluminum and composites, thereby allowing for optimization of the fabrication process.

Overall, the webinar will emphasize how microscopy is used to further our understanding of the process-structure-performance relationship, and allows for quality inspection in an R&D environment.
