Advancements in Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) for Battery Research

24 April @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+1

Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is used industrially for depositing nanometers-to-microns of a material to produce functional layers/alter surface properties. The technique is paramount in pioneering the development of solid-state/lithium-ion batteries.

Key solid-state challenges are impedance at the cathode-electrolyte interface, volumetric energy density, and dendrites/crack formation during cycling. PVD is ideally suited to manufacturing promising solutions, whilst allowing high-throughput screening of novel material compositions to enhance electrochemical properties.

The HEX is a cost-effective system, mountable beneath an existing glovebox for fully inert development. The unique configuration maximizes glovebox space and enables easy atmosphere-side modification/cleaning. The high modularity facilitates changes without specialist tools, enabling rapid changes in research approach without additional costs. Integration of sputtering/thermal/e-beam/organic evaporation/substrate heating allows extensive material production capabilities.


This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

• PVD techniques used to produce functional layers/alter surface properties

• Development of model systems to study interfacial phenomena

• High throughput screening of novel materials to enhance electrochemical properties

• Introduction to the HEX series of PVD instrument and its key advantages for research, including unique mounting position below the glovebox


A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.
