Abstract
Not Available Yardney Technical Products as the prime contractor and Professor Bruce Dunn of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), as a subcontractor, propose to develop a novel, thin film Li-ion battery technology. Unique to the innovation, the technology will incorporate an inorganic thin film polymer electrolyte which will permit the development of dimensionally and mechanically flexible thin film Li-ion cells appropriate for application in small satellites and related aerospace applications. The technology will offer high cycle life, high energy density and high specific energy, as required of satellite applications, in a dimensionally flexible, thin film device able to conform to virtually any configuration. Energy density will be enhanced through the use of less electrolyte, thinner separator and lighter weight packaging. Additional features of the thin film battery will be thermal stability, enhanced through the use of a silica based polymer, and low temperature performance, enhanced through both confinement effects and the use of materials with high ionic conductivity. Finally, the fabrication of the thin film cells addresses manufacturing issues which have inhibited the commercialization of gel polymer electrolyte systems and lead to the success of solid polymer electrolyte systems. The form factor of the resulting cells will be unrestricted.
