Title: Batch and continuous methods for evaluating the physical and thermal properties of films

Abstract

Thermal methods and systems are described for the batch and/or continuous monitoring of films and/or membranes and/or electrodes produced in large-scale manufacturing lines. Some of the methods described include providing an energy input into a film, measuring a thermal response of the film, and correlating these to one or more physical properties and/or characteristics of the film.
