Original Paper


Silver-based fast ion-conducting, (FIC) 60%AgI-[M Ag2O-F{(0.4)B2O3-(0.6)TeO2}] (SBT2 system) where M/F = 0 to 2 in steps of 0.25, samples are prepared through melt-quench technique. The glassy nature is up to SBT2-6 (M/F = 1.50) samples. The highest conductivity (σ = 8.87 × 10−1 S/cm) and highest ionic transport number (Ti = 0.9994) is found for the sample SBT2-6 ([60%AgI-22%Ag2O-18%{(0.4)B2O3-(0.6)TeO2}]). Hence, SBT2-6 sample can be used as a solid electrolyte (SE) in fabrication of primary solid-state batteries (SSBs). The batteries are made up with anode (SE + Ag powder); SBT2-6 sample as SE using different cathode materials (cathode-I: [I:C] and cathode-II: [I + C:SE], where I is Iodine and C is graphite) are taken in the ratios of 6:4, 7:3, 8:2, and 9:1. Open-circuit voltages (OCVs) and short-circuit currents (SCCs) are measured, and the discharge characteristics are measured to estimate the lifetime of all batteries.
