Title: Note: Sample chamber for in situ x-ray absorption spectroscopy studies of battery materials

Abstract

In situ x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) provides element specific characterization of both crystalline and amorphous phases and enables direct correlations between electrochemical performance and structural characteristics of cathode and anode materials. In situ XAS measurements are very demanding to the design of the experimental setup. We have developed the sample chamber that provides electrical connectivity and inert atmosphere for the operating electrochemical cells and also accounts for x-ray interactions with chamber and the cell materials. The design of the sample chamber for in situ measurements is presented along with the example XAS spectra from the anode materials in operating pouch cells at Zn and Sn K-edges measured.in fluorescence and transmission modes respectively.
