Description: This image shows thin beta-alumina electrolyte membrane used in a new, planar sodium-beta battery design being developed by EaglePicher Technologies and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Using a planar, stacked, modular battery design that employs thinner electrolyte materials, will enable an estimated 30% reduction in operating temperature.
