The Importance of Weighing in Battery Material Characterization

Last updated: March 21, 2023


In this interview, AZoM talks to Sartorius and Anton Paar about battery cell development and the important role that weighing plays in this. Characterization of cathode and anode material during battery development includes specific surface area, density, and pore size distribution calculations. To determine these parameters, you need precise weight measurement, which is hard to do when electrostatic effects and other common environmental factors are present.
