Latest applications note

May 9th 2022

In collaboration with our Japanese Applications Lab., we're excited to share our latest applications note, XPS analysis of solid-electrolyte interphase layer formed on a lithium-ion battery negative electrode.  

The work demonstrates the use of the air-sensitive transporter, moving samples from a glove box at the battery manufacturer's site to our instrument in the Kyoto demo. lab.  We also use both conventional Al Kα and the HAXPES Ag Lα monochromatic X-ray source to determine the depth distribution of the Li chemical states.
