Abstract : A study was conducted to explore the usefulness of ferroelectric energy conversion for flight vehicle power supplies. The development of bariu titanate-based materials was encouraging and fruitful. Ceramic sheets with very high v lue of polarization, permittivity, and insulation resistance were prepared. A new approach for introducing low valency anions such as fluorine simultaneously with high valency cations such as uranium proved successful and practical. The conversion efficiency does no exceed 1% with BaTi03-based compositions, bu goo sp cific outputs can be calculated for very thin ferroelectric films. (Author)
