AN OVERVIEW OF THE SODIUM-SULFUR BATTERY

This paper reviews the current status of work on the sodium-sulfur battery with emphasis on the ceramic electrolyte and container and electrode materials for the sulfur electrode. In addition, test results are compared with results from cells which were identically constructed except that they were metal-free. Whereas problems still remain, it is concluded that no fundamental obstacle is known which would preclude the commercial development of the sodium-sulfur battery. /GMRL/
