Join Exponent as we unravel complex failures across diverse products and battery formats
Failure of lithium-ion batteries can lead to a range of consequences, from failure to meet performance expectations to exposure of toxic electrolyte liquids or vapors to dangerous release of heat, toxic gases, or fire in the case of a so-called "thermal runaway event." Root-cause failure analysis of lithium-ion batteries provides important feedback for cell design, manufacturing, and use to help prevent such failures.
What you'll learn:
- Exponent's outside-in methodology from exterior electronics to interior cell chemistry
- Essential analytical techniques used to pinpoint the root cause
- Challenges and adapted methodologies for larger form factors and higher energy densities
