  7. High Performance Lithium Sulfur Battery with Novel Separator Membrane for Space Applications

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: Z102

    For NASA's human and robotic mission, the battery with extremely high specific energy (>500 Wh/kg) and long cycle life are urgently sought after in order to reduce the payload weight. Current state-of-the-art lithium ion batteries, such as graphite/LiCoO2 or graphite/LiFePO4 systems, have limited specific energy to around 220 Wh/kg on the cell level. In order to meet the future NASA mission requ ...

  8. Highly Conductive Polymer Electrolyte Impregnated 3d Li-Metal Negative Electrode

    SBC: Xerion Advanced Battery            Topic: Z102

    XABC (Xerion Advanced Battery Corp) proposes a novel anode with three unique features, each designed to 1) control or 2) prevent dendrite growth. The first feature is a 95% porous electrode architecture. This electrode is an open-cell, nanostructured conductive foam whose internal structures are conformal coated with lithium metal. Dendrites growing outward from an internal pore surface will propa ...

  9. High-Efficiency, Radiation-Hard, Lightweight IMM Solar Cells

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: S301

    Future NASA exploration missions require high specific power (>500 W/kg) solar arrays. To increase cell efficiency while reducing weight and maintaining structural integrity, we propose an approach to cell design that involves the use of quantum dots and epitaxial lift-off. In the near term, this approach will allow us to improve on what are currently the best space solar cells available in term ...
