Vancouver "Nano One" Lab Pilots Battery Testing Research at SFU
Nano One Materials Corp, based in Vancouver B.C., is constantly finding new ways to create low-cost processing technology to produce high performance battery materials. One of their recent projects involves the testing of next generation cathode material known as lithium manganese rich lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (LMR-NMC). They are creating ways to improve cell-to-cell consistency and increasing cycle capacity, seeing about 0.03% capacity fade per cycle when charging and discharging once per hour.
They are collaborating with 4D LABS research institute at Simon Fraser University, which allows them to use a number of analytical tools to characterize the structural properties, chemical composition, porosity, surface area and mass of Nano One’s materials.
Battery testing technology is in constant demand, with new innovations being made annually across the globe. The C8000 Battery Tester allows for the testing of a wide array of battery models and showcases lab-grade capacity-testing and accuracy levels.
With installations ranging from MIT and Virginia Tech to the University of Lagos in Nigeria, and from Boeing to BAE and the FDA, the Cadex C8000 Advanced Battery Analyzer has become the affordable industry standard for battery technology testing and validation.
