A new study led by Berkeley Lab reveals surprising clues into the causes behind the rare event of a lithium-ion battery catching fire after fast charging. The researchers used an imaging technique called “operando X-ray microtomography” at the Advanced Light Source to probe lithium-graphite battery materials at high resolution.

World-class facilities, centers, research equipment, and advanced instruments are available to support the experimental and data needs of researchers, agencies, and companies.
