QWED application among the 12 finalists for Innovation Radar Prize 2021

Thank you all for your support! With their application "QuickWave", QWED made it among the 12 finalists pitching their innovation to the jury on October 21, 2021.

NanoBat publication: Accelerated electrochemical investigation of Li plating efficiency as key parameter for Li metal batteries utilizing a scanning droplet cell

The implementation of scanning droplet cell (SDC) for non-aqueous battery research is discussed in this publication as well as the necessary adaptations for operation inside an Ar-filled glovebox in absence of oxygen and moisture.

NanoBat publication: Assessment of Lithium-Ion Battery Ageing by Combined Impedance Spectroscopy, Functional Microscopy and Finite Element Modelling

In this work we show how EIS complemented by microscopy data can be successfully used to follow battery ageing.

NanoBat aims to develop a novel nanotechnology toolbox for quality testing of Li-ion and beyond Lithium batteries.

Sustainable electricity storage is among this century’s main challenges. Being faster and more accurate than existing methods, the radio frequency (RF)-nanoscale techniques to be developed in NanoBat have the potential to redefine battery production in Europe and worldwide and greatly benefit the clean energy and e-mobility transition in Europe.

“Covering the EU demand alone requires at least 20 large-scale battery production facilities. We are confident that the NanoBat technologies could effectively support European manufacturers and SMEs to exploit this enormous market potential and keep up with global competition. ”
