Abstract:

The object of this program is to demonstrate the feasibility of a thermally regenerative energy conversion device in which bismuth trilodide is decomposed thermally to liberate bismuth and iodine, which then separate and ionize at their respective electrode surfaces, producing an electric current. The ions recombine to form the bismuth triiodide, thereby completing the regenerative cycle.
