Abstract:

The objective of this study was to determine the feasibility of preparing solid-electrolyte batteries using only vacuum-deposited thin films. This feasibility has been demonstrated. Batteries were made in two configurations non overlapping and overlapping electrodes. In all cases the anode material was an evaporated Ag film a variety of electrolytes were studied evaporated AgI, co-evaporated AgI and KI, evaporated AgBr, a double electrolyte of AgI evaporated onto a film of evaporated AgCl, a double electrolyte of AgI evaporated onto a film of AgI prepared by iodizing a thin film of Ag previously evaporated onto a film of sputtered Pt cathode materials were sputtered Pt films usually or evaporated Au. Overall cell thicknesses were in the range of 6-12 microns. Preliminary tests indicate that such thin cells are rechargeable and some are apparently of long shelf-life. Author
