Post-Mortem Analysis

For models, simulations, and indeed most fault analyses, key parameters can only be determined by opening specimens and performing further investigations thereon. We carry out so-called tear-down analysis of lead and primary batteries with our own means; for further investigations on Li-Ion cells, we work closely with the Department of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage Systems at RWTH Aachen University. This institution operates a complete, specialised and well-equipped chemical laboratory for accurate analysis in an inert gas atmosphere.
