This video shows two X-ray #tomography (XRM) scans of an 18650 #Lithium ion #battery, performed with Xradia 620 Versa. Visualization and movie performed with ORS Dragonfly Pro.
Both scans were performed nondestructively without opening the battery. The high #resolution interior tomography is a very impressive result within an intact battery. It is important to note that this was performed at full kV (160) and full #power (25 W). The interior tomography was still quite a long scan to achieve high signal (30 hours) but would have been impossible on a Versa 5XX series. Seeing such high level of detail requires the higher power of Versa 6XX to be possible in a realistic time.
The colors of the interior tomography refer to different segmented layers of the electrode and current collector components.
