The Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science is home to a large suite of advanced electrochemical facilities for battery and cell testing and research studies:

  • Potentiostats and impedance analysers.
  • Scanning electrochemical probes.
  • Potentiostatic battery test banks.
  • Array electrode systems.
  • Rotating ring disk electrodes.
  • Custom designed electrochemical and flow cells.

You can also access a variety of surface characterisation equipment for materials imaging and analysis:

  • Advanced Characterisation Facility
  • Optical profilometer.
  • ATR-FTIR spectrometer.

Battery and coin cell fabrication equipment to manufacture and assemble electrodes and coin cells for testing, including an argon glovebox laboratory.

Synthetic laboratory for preparation and synthesis of novel chemical compounds and electrolytes.

Analytical Instruments for chemical, physical and mechanical characterisation:

  • Viscometer.
  • Conductivity measurements.
  • Karl Fisher titrator.
  • Dynamic Mechanical Analyser.
  • Differential Scanning Calorimeters.

State of the art Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility for micro surface imaging and solution testing:

  • Bruker AVANCE III 500 MHz wide bore.
  • Bruker AVANCE III 500 MHz standard bore.
  • Bruker AVANCE III 300 MHz wide bore.
  • JEOL Eclipse+ 400MHz.
  • JEOL EX 270 MHz.

We work closely with the synchrotron and neutron facilities at the Australian Synchrotron and the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation.

Case studies provide an indication as to the types of outcomes that can be achieved through connecting industry and research. Read the ‘Seamless energy supply in heavy demand’ case study to discover how ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science  connected with AusNet services.



The Centre offers dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), differential scanning calorimeters, and also access to Deakin’s Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility, based in Waurn Ponds.
