Abstract : The invention described herein may be manufactured, used, and licensed by or for the Government for governmental purposes without the payment to us of any royalty thereon. This invention relates in general to a cathode for use in a lithium electrochemical cell and in particular to such a cathode including a cathode mix of amorphous materials from the mixed - metal oxide (V0.7Mo0.3)205 and P205 as the cathode active material. The general object of this invention it to provide an improved cathode for use in a lithium electrochemical cell. A more specific object of the invention is to provide an inexpensive high energy material with excellent cycle-life and rate capabilities for use as the cathode of a lithium electrochemical cell. A specific object of the invention is to provide a cathode for use in a lithium electrochemical cell that will be capable of dischargig the cell to even lower voltages than were obtained with the cathode of S.N. 059,346.
