Battery and Cell Testing

The Fraunhofer ISC offers extensive services around the analysis, testing and characterization of materials, components, cells and battery systems. Our state-of-the-art laboratories and pilot plant facilities feature the required infrastructure for complex and detailed screening and evaluation tasks.


Current R&D priorities

  • Battery and cell tests, evaluation and monitoring of operating conditions, lifespan, charging behavior and other battery properties
  • Tests to locate chemical alterations
  • Post-mortem analysis to investigate aging processes


Our competencies

  • Laboratory and industrial scale testing: 350 test channels, up to 600 V, -40 °C to +80 °C
  • Advanced analysis methods (e.g. aging or non-destructive methods) and comparative measurements
  • High-throughput testing under controlled atmosphere
  • Cell characterization in inert gas atmosphere
  • Cyclization under extreme ambient conditions
  • Sample preparation for artifact-free characterizations


Our services to customers

  • Testing of novel materials and battery systems
  • Data for simulation models for the development of new battery cells
  • Comparative prototype testing
  • Manufacturing of test cells
  • Evaluation of existing battery technologies to optimize production yields
  • Compilation of solid databases for subsequent optimization or development tasks
  • Consulting on the selection of materials or components
  • Battery assessment
