Can MRI technology help develop new battery materials?

The University of Birmingham has researched into using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to support the development of high-performance rechargeable batteries.

The technique being researched looks into detecting the movement and deposition of sodium metal ions within a sodium battery. This would result in the faster evolution of new battery materials and help accelerate commercialisation.

Furthermore, these sodium batteries are seen as a suitable alternative to lithium-ion. Despite this, there are challenges when it comes to understanding how the sodium behaves when inside the battery and optimising the performance.
