MCL Leoben

Roseggerstrasse 12, 8700 Leoben, Austria

The Materials Center Leoben Forschung GmbH (MCL) is the leading Austrian institution in the field of applied materials science with around 150 employees. In particular, it is operating the Comet K2 Center on Integrated Research in Materials, Processing and Product Engineering (MPPE) which is the largest competence center in the field of research on application of materials in Austria. The research focuses on Integrated research in materials, processing and product engineering and covers the entire supply chain from material synthesis via materials processing and manufacturing and is also including the behavior of components in service till their deployment. About 50 scientific institutions and about 90 companies are collaborating in this network on material based innovations in the fields of (a) new materials and novel material solutions for future applications like energy storage and harvesting, (b) new and optimized processes and process chains, (c) new design concepts, (d) innovative material driven products, and (d) reliability of products in service.

The MCL has modern Lab equipment suitable for cutting edge failure characterization and material characterization.


 Main tasks within Sintbat:

The cell design examination by X-ray computed tomography (XCT) within WP5 will be performed at the Materials Center Leoben Forschung GmbH, Austria. The main aim of the research will be the non-destructive structural 3D analysis of the whole 26650 cell for various designs, and after different test procedures. Additionally, the 3D structural analysis of educed defined components, like from the cathode and anode material, is part of the project.

The XCT 3D data obtained from different cell designs and after various tests will be analyzed by using modern 3D analysis tools. Hence, for the proposed 3D structural analysis of the cells and components, high resolution, high contrast, the reduction of measurement artefacts sufficient applied X-ray power, as well as analysis algorithms are essential. Analyzing algorithm to compare properly the internal structures of different cell designs and after various test cycles shall be developed and applied. Inhomogeneity within the cell and the geometry data of the cell shall be documented. The gained 3D information shall be used to improve the cell design. The gained information from the XCT scans will be highly relevant for WP-6 for prototyping and demonstration. In addition the information regarding the internal structure of the whole cell and selected components will be also delivered to WP-4 "parameter setting, simulation and modeling".
