Abstract:

Advanced batteries, both secondary and primary, have a potentially important role to play in the development of many areas of technology in the late 20th century and beyond. Applications include stationary storage, vehicle traction and remote power sources, as well as industrial and domestic cordless products and consumer and military electronics. The concept of an all-solid-state battery is not new but, until recently, their performance has precluded their use in other than specialist low power, primary, applications. Recent materials developments, however, make the solid-state battery a real possibility in all of the application sectors mentioned above. Further, such cells offer many attractive features over alternative present-day and advanced systems. To give both structure and continuity to the programme, the lectures were divided, on a roughly daily basis, into groups, each with a particular theme Basic Concepts Solid Electrolytes Electrode Processes Electrode Materials Experimental Techniques Introduction to Batteries Solid-State Batteries and New Technology.
