Presentation Summary

  • Development of Polymer Gel Electrolytes (PGE) to form tough, flexible films with conductivities of 10-3 S/cm.
  • Production of thin-film batteries using a roll-to-roll process at 10m/min
  • Production of cells with PGE thickness less than 0.1 mm and with energy densities approaching 170 Wh/kg.
