Novel electrochemical strain microscopy developed to study Li-ion movement

By / September 14, 2010

According to a press release, Oak Ridge researchers have developed a new type of scanning probe microscopy called electrochemical strain microscopy that examines the movement of Li-ions through a battery’s cathode material. The research, “Nanoscale mapping of ion diffusion in a lithium-ion battery cathode,” is published in Nature Nanotechnology. Results were achieved by applying voltage…
