AbstractWe propose to develop a new type of primary lithium battery using an available polymer lithium ion battery technology. We will use manganese dioxide-polymer matrix as the cathode, lithium ion containing polymer as the electrolyte and lithium as the anode.The plastic lithium primary battery will combine the advantages of lithium primary batteries and plastic lithium ion rechargeable batteries. This research will lead to the development of batteries with high capacity, high power density, flexible andconformable shapes, durability for operation in extreme environments, and long shelf life. This kind of battery will be less expensive since low cost manganese dioxide and plastic packaging can be used. Batteries with this structure will be fabricated andevaluated by electrochemical measurements under various conditions. This kind of battery will be the idea source for application in missile monitoring system. The success of this project will provide a convenient and cost effective way to make high energy,long life plastic lithium manganese dioxide primary batteries in various shapes. This approach will enable us to provide a solid state primary battery for electronic and military applications. The battery developed in this project will be highly marketableto semiconductor and MEMS manufactures. It can also replace the conventional liquid primary lithium manganese dioxide and other types of batteries used for camera, toy, and other electronic and medical devices.
