Form 9.B Project Summary

Chron: 972475

Proposal Number: 19.02-0749

Project Title: An Improved Polymer Electrolyte Cell

Technical Abstract (Limit 200 words)

A research program to improve the performance of polymer electrolyte-based Li ion batteries is proposed. The cell will use a proprietary electrolyte, a high capacity insertion cathode and a high capacity intercalation anode. The major emphasis in Phase I will be to identify polymer electrolytes which will meet NASA's requirement of operating in low temperatures down to -60 degree Celsius. The cell will have high rate capability and a cycle-life of over 1000 cycles. The use of the high capacity cathode will increase the specific energy of the cell to >170 Wh/kg and volumetric energy density of about 310 Wh/l.

Potential Commercial Applications (Limit 200 words)

A high capacity polymer electrolyte Li ion cell having good low temperature performance will find immediate application in a number of consumer and military devices. These include cellular phones, camcorders, portable computers and other hand-held devices, as well as electric vehicles.
