KSEF R&D Excellence: Development of Batteries Containing Depleted Uranium

  • Dunbar, Paul (PI)
  • Lee-Desautels, Rhonda (CoI)

Grants and Contracts Details


The goal of this project is to determine the commercial feasibility of constructing secondary or other type of power batteries consisting of depleted uranium materials. The objectives are to investigate the several options available for cathode and anode electrode materials to provide the highest cell voltage combined with high capacity. The depleted uranium starting materials of interest include the uranium oxides ofUOz and U30g. The investigation will target operating the battery at ambient temperature.
