Detailed information is presented on two aspects of work on Cerolyte Fuel Cells 1 the measurement of polarization voltage losses and 2 the overall design of a 50-watt Cerolyte Fuel-cell Battery. The effects of curent density and temperature on polarization voltage losses for fusedplatinum electrodes both absorbing and desorbing oxygen in a H2-H2O atmosphere were obtained. The measurement techniques developed will be useful in determining the fabrication conditions for producing optimum electrodes for cerolyte cells. A preliminary design for a 50-watt battery was completed it consists of 1 a metal base-plate including the battery manifolding and tubular battery support 2 battery casing and 3 insulation. The testing work on 5-cell batteries was continued.
