Abstract:

The objective of this program is the realization of a practical, reserve-type primary battery based on the NOLC liquid-ammonia activated cell. Theoretically, the active constituents of the NOLC liquid-ammonia activated cell have the capability of meeting the energy requirements. The solvent for the system, liquid ammonia, fulfills the temperature requirement. The investigation of single-cell characteristics has demonstrated the practicability of utilizing the NOLC cell at high-drain rates. However, the transition from a single-cell unit to a multi cell device is accompanied by many difficulties of a practical nature. It is the immediate goal of the program to accomplish this transition. During this report period, several encapsulated devices were fabricated and evaluated. Addi tionally, a new multi-cell test fixture was designed and constructed.
