Abstract
This proposed Phase I SBIR program will produce safer, higher-rate, high energy density, thermal batteries through the development of improved nanocomposite anode materials. This development will increase the anode side of the thermal battery by replacing traditional lithium using a nano-lithium silicon. The program addresses high rate capacity by taking a proven high capacity material with poor rate capability (LiSi) and producing a nano-particle version.
