Abstract : Fundamental properties of research cells were correlated with the projected performance of full scale power sources, considering both battery and supercapacitor concepts. In addition to establishing the data base for modelling and performance projections, the program had the additional objective of identifying loss mechanisms and degradation reactions, especially those unique to polymer thin film cell designs. Because of the intrinsic high electrode/electrolyte interface areas, interfacial reactions must be understood. Many applications require power under extreme conditions, and low temperature performance needs to be improved.
