NCM cathode material characterised using EBSD

This application note demonstrates how grain size and texture information can be acquired from NCM (nickel, cobalt, manganese) cathode material using Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD). By characterising and comparing samples of different cathode materials at different stages of the battery’s lifetime, it is possible to link the performance with the microstructure and improve understanding of how the materials can be optimised.
