Abstract
THE HIGH ENERGY DENSITY, HIGH RATE CAPABILITY SYSTEM PROPOSED TO PROVIDE PULSE-POWER FOR ELECTRIC WEAPONS EMPLOYS VERYHIGH SURFACE AREA ELECTRODES AND A SOLID ELECTROLYTE WITH HIGH CONDUCTIVITY AND A HIGH DECOMPOSITION POTENTIAL. THE SYSTEM WILL BE PRIMARILY EVALUATED AS A CAPACITOR, BUT WITH MINOR MODIFICATIONS WILL ALSO BETESTED AS A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY. THE DEVICE DESCRIBED HERE WILL PROVIDE AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE HIGHER ENERGY DENSITY THAN COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE DOUBLE LAYER CAPACITORS AND IS OVER THREE TIMES HIGHER THAN THEENERGY DENSITY OBJECTIVE SPECIFIED IN THE PROPOSAL. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS/POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS - THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OFTHIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL PROVIDE AN ADVANCED CAPACITOR WITH HIGHER ENERGY DENSITY THAN ANY COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE. THIS DEVICE WILL ALSOFULFILL MANY RECHARGEABLE BATTERY APPLICATIONS THAT REQUIRED MORE COULOMBIC CAPACITY THAN A CAPACITOR HERETOFORE COULD OFFER. SINCE THIS DEVICE WILL CYCLE WITHOUT CHANGES IN THE MORPHOLOGY OF THE ACTIVE COMPONENTS, IT WILL DELIVER MANY MORE RECHARGING CYCLES THAN ANY BATTERY SYSTEM.
