NMR For Battery Research Workshop

The ever-increasing demand of batteries to supply the vast fields of applications, brings new challenges to the measuring techniques and their methodology. Furthermore, new impulses in the respect to electrochemicals within the batteries are demanded. NMR has proven its capability and offers a great possibility for non-invasive analysis to satisfy the rising interest in observation of inner processes and mechanisms of ion transport.

To further explore the latest methods and research, Bruker is teaming up with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to host a workshop. For more information contact Dieter.gross@bruker.com or Klaus.Zick@bruker.com.
