Cross Section Ion Beam Milling of Battery Components
A step by step preparation protocol of Lithium battery components including mechanical pre-treatment and ion beam polishing for high quality SEM analysis using Leica Microsystems EM TXP and EM TIC 3X.
Sample Preparation of Lithium battery systems requires high quality surface preparation to evaluate their internal structure and morphology. Due to the brittle materials involved, preparing pristine cross sections can be very challenging. Pure mechanical preparation alone will not be enough to allow high resolution SEM analysis of the battery. In this preparation protocol it is described how broad ion beam milling eliminates the artefacts from mechanical preparation resulting in high quality SEM images with a smooth defect-free surface of the sample.
