Exploring the effect of carbon microstructure on lithium-ion battery performance

This application note describes the combined use of static optical microscopy and Raman spectroscopy in the Morphologi G3-ID to assess the various morphological classes of carbon for use in lithium-ion battery manufacture.  High levels of crystallinity, visible in the Raman spectra as the G band, are valued in the production of High Specific Charge (HSC) graphite, which increases battery performance by assisting lithium intercalation.
