StoRIES Infrastructures: KIT FromMATtoBATT

FromMATtoBATT of of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is an infrastructure platform combining MAP and battery laboratories of Helmholtz Institute Ulm (http://www.hiu-batteries.de/battery-research-center-in-germany/) and Battery Technology Centre of Institutes of Applied Materials, Electrical Engineering and Production Science for bridging the gap between fundamental research and industrial needs (http://www.batterietechnikum.kit.edu/english/index.php#)

State of the art: Multi-purpose lab-scale plant for the characterisation of battery materials and lab-scale cells, including the Platform for Accelerated Chemical ES Research (PLACES/R) offering the capability for combinatorial syntheses of electrodes and electrolytes.

Services currently offered by the infrastructure: Semi-automatic line for manual manufacture of pouch cells in a dry room, physical and chemical characterization of materials, making of electrodes and lab-scale cells, post-mortem analysis, characterization and performance testing of battery materials and cells including Coulombic, Voltaic and energy efficiency. A large suite of mechanical, thermal, electrical, and other physical characterization and test equipment for ex-situ and in-situ examination of battery materials and cells.
