hATR Microscope Reveals Post-Cycling Changes of Advanced Electrolyte Materials
June 12, 2024
Researchers from the University of Alberta and the University of British Columbia use the horizontal attenuated total reflection (hATR) microscope of the Mid-IR beamline to study solid-state batteries. They made use of our focal plane array (FPA) detector to track heterogeneities in the electrolyte surface during changing/discharging.Read the paper!Dong, S.; Xie, G.; Xu, S.; Tan, X.; Chaudhary, M.; Zhang, Y.; Wu, R.; Wen, F.; Ayranci, C.; Michaelis, V.K.; Quirk, A.; Rosendahl, S.M.; Liu, J.; Fleischauer, M.D.; Sang, L.
