Split Test Cell with Quartz Window for Battery Electrode In-situ Analysis: Optional Insert Size & Au Coating - EQ-STC-QW

Product Options

Inserts Size:


EQ-STC-QW split-able test cell is designed for R&D of rechargeable battery material. A 16.8 mm Dia. quartz window on its bottom allows in-situ X-Ray analysis of battery material phase transition during charging and discharging. Such a cell can accept various sizes (19, 20, and 24 mm diameter) of electrodes and separators and test the electrodes easily and quickly.



  • Electrolyte corrosive-proof PTFE Guide Sleeve capable of withstanding up to 250 ºC. (Please select the size of the PTFE sleeve I.D. at Product Options: 5,10,12,15,19,20,and 24 mm) 
  • Sealed by electrolyte corrosive-proof PTFE O-rings.
  • A 6 mm height spacer inside the test cell to press down on the electrode and prevent the electrode from curling.
  • Small enough to be put in and taken out from a glove box.
  • Easy to separate and clean after testing.
  • Same functionality to "Swagelok Coin Cell" but with more size options for electrode and separator and also the proper dimensions for glove box compatibility.
  • Stainless Steel
  • Quartz Window
  • PTFE Sleeve
  • PRFE O-ring
  • Height: 67mm min. without load.
  • Diameter: 63mm (widest diameter without lead.)
  • Lead exposed length: 21mm
  • Quartz Window: ⌀17mm
  • Quartz Window fixture: ⌀42mm
Quartz Observation Window

  • Observation Area = 2.0 mm Dia. Quartz Observation Window allows the X-Ray beam penetration
  • Customized split cell with enlarged observation area up to 8.0 mm Dia. is available at extra cost (See picture below)

Application Notes
  • For In-situ Laser Raman Spectroscopy, the typical wavelength used is ranging from ultra-violet (244 nm~364 nm) to near infrared (785 nm~1064 nm). The quartz observation window we used can provide  >80% light-throughput for this wavelength range.
  • For better in-situ observation, electrode material shall face the window.  you may use lab press and dry pressing die below to prepare an electrode pellet instead of using electrode coated Al or Cu foil.
  • Optional: Purchase a vacuum pen for easy component placement.
