Abstract:

Research and development leading to improved, long life, reliable, high watt-hour-per pound, sealed nickel-cadmium batteries are reported. Fundamental studies on electrode mechanisms were treated theoretically. Improved techniques were developed to impregnate active material into electrodes so as to gain increased output. Studies were made of the parameters involved in a sembling sealed cells so as to achieve high overcharge capability without sacrificing capacity. Development progressed on techniques to produce ceramic-to-metal terminal seals mechanical configurations and designs of prototypes were worked out. Five possible designs of sealed cells to meet the desired performance requirements are discussed. Author
