  • Publication number: 20210057218
    Abstract: A laser annealing device includes a stage, a laser generator, and a reflective member. The stage supports a substrate with a thin film formed thereon to be processed, and may be moved in a first direction at a set or predetermined speed. The laser generator irradiates a first area of the thin film with a laser beam while the stage is moved. The reflective member reflects a part of the laser beam, which is reflected from the first area of the thin film, to a second area of the thin film. The first area and the second area are spaced apart from each other.

    Abstract: An apparatus and method for determining electrode information of a battery including a positive electrode and a negative electrode, and a battery pack including the apparatus. The apparatus includes a sensing unit configured to measure a voltage and a current of the battery, and a processor. The processor generates a V-dQ/dV curve based on the voltage and the current of the battery. The V-dQ/dV curve indicates a relationship between V (the voltage of the battery) and dQ/dV (a ratio of an amount of change dQ of the remaining capacity to an amount of change dV of the voltage of the battery). The processor detects a plurality of feature points from the V-dQ/dV curve. The processor determines information associated with each of the first electrode and the second electrode as the electrode information based on the plurality of feature points.
