Abstract

Novel polyethers doped with insulating oxides are used to prepare solid polymer electrolytes for high energy density lithium batteries. The electrolytes are characterized for conductivity and electrochemical stability. Prototype lithium-polymer cells with high voltage cathodes will be fabricated and feasibility demonstrated for rate capability and cyclability.
