Abstract
The Li-air polymer battery offers the potential of extremely high specific energy of greater than 500 Wh/kg. Cell performance is determined primarily by the cathode, which controls the capacity and to a large degree also cell polarization. Therefore, the development and characterization of improved, efficient cathode structures and polymer electrolytes is proposed. The performance of the new components will be demonstrated in complete thin layer pouch cells.
