Energy Storage

Synchrotron techniques provide ways to see inside operating batteries and fuel cells, providing new insights into chemicals and physical changes within devices.

Many advanced electrochemical tools are available to battery and fuel cell manufacturers, but these techniques often don't provide information on the underlying mechanisms and material changes that occur inside the cell. Synchrotron techniques provide a way to observe changes in material properties such as oxidation state or crystalline phase. They also allow for the non-destructive, in situ analysis of complex electrochemical reactions in operating devices. Many synchrotron techniques are also element-specific, which is especially important for targeted analysis of alloy-based electrode materials.

Uncovering the complex physical and chemical interactions between the components of composite materials is a unique advantage of synchrotron-based techniques.

Synchrotron-based x-ray imaging has proven extremely useful for imaging the microstructure of composite materials like carbon fiber, alloys, fiberglass, and laminar structures. Synchrotron-based imaging is also much faster than conventional techniques, allowing for in-situ imaging of defects, damage, stress, and manufacturing processes like resin curing. Other techniques allow us to probe the chemistry of material interfaces at the nanometer scale, which can provide invaluable information about how component materials interact with each other.

Catalysis is a well-established application of synchrotron spectroscopy, where experiments can be carried out in situ to monitor changes in metal chemistry and reaction intermediates. 

Synchrotron-based spectroscopy is uniquely suited for the chemical analysis of catalytic systems. Many synchrotron techniques are surface-sensitive and element-specific, allowing for targeted analysis of complex catalytic reactions. Several facilities within the CLS are outfitted with gas- and fluid-flow cells so that processes like degradation and catalyst poisoning can be monitored in situ. Synchrotron techniques provide direct information on important catalytic properties like oxidation state, crystalline phase, and coordination chemistry.

Materials Chemistry

Designing new materials with novel functional properties requires understanding the interplay of structure and composition across different length and time scales, a major strength of synchrotron techniques.

Understanding the function of new materials requires capabilities that bridge length scales, from atomic to macroscopic, for both bulk materials and surfaces. Synchrotrons provide a wealth of techniques to aid a complete understanding of the chemistry and function of new materials, from determining crystal structure or the functional role of a trace element, to imaging surfaces or mapping three-dimensional microstructure. Many of these techniques can be applied in situ or operando, to gain insight into material performance under real operating conditions.
