Specially equipped laboratories for the synthesis, analysis and validation of material in small-sized cells open the door to comprehensive battery materials research. The focus is primarily on the development of high-voltage cathodes and high-energy anode materials as well as on the optimisation of known cell chemistries. The characterisation of materials from customers and project partners completes the offer.
