Fig. 1: Illustration of the cell operation, discharge curves and virtual unrolling technique.

From: 4D imaging of lithium-batteries using correlative neutron and X-ray tomography with a virtual unrolling technique

Fig. 1

Image a shows an illustration of the studied Li/MnO2 CR2 primary cell from Duracell. Graph b shows the constant resistance discharge curve for the CR2 cell over 4.5 Ω, where simultaneous fast X-ray CT was carried out. Graph c shows the constant resistance discharge curve over 4.7 Ω, where the discharge was interrupted for each neutron tomography after a certain time interval. Image d displays the reconstructed tomograms from neutron and X-ray CT along with examples of sections extracted following virtual unrolling of the reconstructions. Clearly visible in the X-ray images is the nickel current collecting mesh, which appears brighter than the LixMnO2 active electrode material.
