Abstract:

Hybrid power sources combining conventional batteries with electrochemical capacitors are being designed toward advanced military, space, and commercial uses. Giner,Inc has developed a high-power density, all-solid proton exchange ionomer-based electrochemical capacitor that represents a potentially more reliable, safer and longer-life alternative burst power source to typical liquid electrolyte electrochemical capacitors. In Phase I, methods are addressed to increase energy density of the all-solid capacitors to 15 kJ/kg by decreasing the particle size and improving the ionomer coating of the alloy noble/transition metal oxide particulates used to fabricate the electrodes. In Phase II, capacitor packaging, scale-up and extension of the unique structure to longer-duration power applications of interest to SDI will be investigated. Possible uses include military (defensive weapons, fast switching devices), CMOS memory backup and load leveling.
