Below is one of our silicon items that is great for FTIR Spectroscopy.
Si Item #3193
100mm Undoped <100> >10,000 ohm-cm 525um DSP Prime
Silicon shows promise to be the next-evolution anode material for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). But Silicon electrodes exhibit significant capacity fade with cycling.
Researchers theorizes that the capacity loss is due to the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) forming in the first cycle and becoming destabilized by large cyclic volume changes.
A client researcher used our item 3193 for the following cell for in situ attenuated total reflection-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy with controllable penetration depth was used to study the chemistry at the electrode–electrolyte interface.
