Identification of materials
inVia can analyse all the key material types: organic and inorganic; crystalline and amorphous; solids, liquids, and gases.
Its high sensitivity makes identifying all the key battery components easy
- carbon materials
- metal oxides
Determination of distribution and structure
Raman mapping and imaging enables the study of the distribution of materials on electrode surfaces, or across cross-sections. The resulting data can be quantified, giving metrics such as fraction estimates and particle statistics.
In situ measurements
Use inVia with a wide range of sample chambers, electrochemical cells and inert gas glove boxes. Raman data acquisition on inVia can also be triggered from devices such as potentiostats, enabling in situ and operando measurements.
Getting data, without damage
Lithium-ion battery components can be altered or damaged by high laser power densities. With Renishaw's line-focus laser illumination technology, power densities are reduced but total laser power is retained, so you can collect high quality data rapidly, and with confidence.
Combine inVia with an atomic force microscope and get not only chemical information from Raman spectroscopy, but also correlated surface topography information from AFM.
