Abstract : The purpose of this program segment is to improve the calcium-thionyl chloride technology in order to produce a power cell with an acceptable shelf life. This task involves efforts to further develop a basic understanding of the electrochemical behavior of the cell components. Component stability tests, quality control techniques, cathode optimization studies, and electrochemical research all aid in the determination of the calcium corrosion reaction mechanism. Knowledge of the corrosion mechanisms is a necessary step toward passivating the calcium anode of removing the corrosion causing species. (Author)
