Workshop on Advanced Characterisation of Energy Storage Materials

This workshop will explore the application of advanced X-ray techniques and beyond in the characterisation of the next generation of lithium and sodium-ion battery materials. There will be a plethora of talks from academic researchers working on energy storage materials directly, reinforced with three presentations from Malvern Panalytical application specialists on the latest characterisation techniques. Talks will cover a range of topics, including in-situ/operando methods, total scattering techniques and on both Li-ion and Na-ion cell technologies.
