Abstract
The Li-Air polymer cells offer the potential of an extremely high energy density system with a specific energy in the 500-1000 Wh/kg range and an energy density of ~1000 Wh/l. Cell performance is determined mainly by the cathode, which controls thecapacity and to a large degree also cell polarization. Therefore, the development and characterization of improved, efficient cathode structures is proposed. The performance of the new components will be demonstrated in complete thin layer pouch cells. Successful development of Li-Air polymer cells will result in a thin flexible battery with extremely high specific energy and versatility. The load voltage will be about 2.5V. The cell can adapt to any shape. It can be stored without degradation forextended time prior to activation. The cell is extremely environmentally friendly and can be easily and safely disposed of after use. The cell will find broad applications in portable devices such as radios, Telephones, sensors, cameras, night visiondevices and computes.
