The overall goal of this project is to develop electrochemical capacitors utilizing a solid ionomer electrolyte. An advantage of these devices over conventional double layer capacitors would be the absence of free liquid electrolyte and thus greater safety and reliability. In the sixth quarter, we concentrated our efforts in three areas: (1) preparation and characterization of electrode materials, (2) preparation of membrane and electrode (M and E) assemblies that have high capacitance and minimum internal resistance, and (3) development of cell hardware that can contain the M and E for extended periods of time without loss of water and contributes negligibly to the total internal resistance.
