Abstract
This proposal is for an all solid state battery having a specific energy more than twice conventional lithium batteries. The rechargeable battery uses a lithium metal anode with ceramic electrolyte. There are no liquids to leak out, catch fire, boil or increase in pressure. There is no mechanism for lithium dendrite evolution during recharge. Research under this proposal will also address unique processes for refining ceramic electrolyte and cathodes. BENEFIT: Space missions have several critical requirements for batteries. This new battery will be capable of operating in high vacuum and able to withstand severe launch environments such as vibration, shock and acceleration. It will also have high energy and long cycle life.
