Inside-out MRI maps the internal current distribution of commercial cells

A new paper published by professor Alexej Jerschow’s group at New York University has shown the map of DC current distribution inside commercial pouch cells at different current rates and state of charge of the battery.

The technique could help improvement in cell design and fast charging as well as quality control by indicating the electrical current distribution map inside pouch cells at a specific rate and SOC. The article describing the work is available here:
