ZEISS eMobility Solutions – From energy to eMotion

Because of the large demand for electric vehicles all over the world, the automotive industry is seeing a rise of the electric engine and powertrain. This results in increasing demands on precision and poses new challenges to the quality assurance process. ZEISS Industrial Quality Solutions is the expert when it comes to developing new testing, inspection and metrology concepts for electric vehicle components. This has been achieved with joint projects, implemented in cooperation with the automotive and supplier industry.

ZEISS eMobility Solutions features a selection of products from the ZEISS portfolio, providing unique holistic quality inspection solutions for all components of the E-Mobility: Battery, Power Electronics, E-Motor and Transmission – From energy to eMotion.

Imaging 4D Failure Mechanisms in Lithium-ion Batteries

Besides understanding the performance characteristics throughout a battery’s life, it is equally important to understand when, why, and how batteries fail. Microscopy can serve as a beneficial tool for studying battery microstructures to understand what aspects of the microstructure lead to certain failure characteristics.

With X-ray microscopy (XRM), researchers are able to perform a 4D imaging experiment over a battery’s lifetime. A fresh battery was studied intact, then subjected to aging until failure and imaged again. The results of electrochemically aged batteries were compared to those of temporally aged batteries, which showed a systematic microstructural change uniquely in response to the electrochemical aging routine.
