These unique glass chambers allow Argonne researchers to conduct controlled environment testing of lithium-oxygen batteries. Created by Argonne glassblower Joe Gregar, the chambers are modeled after cells being used by Professor Peter Bruce's research group at University of St. Andrews, Scotland.

Argonne materials scientist Swati V. Pol loads an in-situ lithium-ion battery into the low-energy resolution inelastic X-ray (LERIX) system at the Advanced Photon Source. This multi-element X-ray scattering instrument is helping Argonne researchers to understand the fundamental mechanisms that limit the performance of batteries.

Argonne scientist Ira Bloom examines a metallographic sample using an optical microscope to determine its microstructure in the laboratory's Battery Post-Test Facility. This information helps researchers learn what chemical and physical changes have occurred during the aging of battery materials.

Argonne's battery research is aimed at lowering the cost and increasing the lifetime and safety of high-power lithium-ion HEV batteries.

Lithium-ion battery cells are prepped for testing at Argonne’s Electrochemical Analysis and Diagnostics Laboratory. With the lab’s state-of-the-art, custom-built equipment, simulations are performed to provide information on battery characteristics such as life cycle and calendar life.
