Application Note: Looking into batteries with RISE microscopy
19 April 2023

Understanding structure-composition-property-performance relationships is fundamental in developing better batteries. RISE (Raman imaging and scanning electron) microscopy is an extremely useful technology for investigating these features. Non-destructive Raman imaging microscopy can visualize structural and chemical information acquired from the battery’s internal components such as their molecular composition, grain fractures, the formation of solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) layers and degradation processes at the electrodes. In the application note, WITec documents changes of new and used electrodes with correlative RISE microscopy.
