Abstract: In order to model the lifetime of the electrochemical cell in an Alkali Metal Thermal to Electric Converter (AMTEC), studies of TiN Electrodes on Beta-alumina solid electrolytes (BASE) have been made to determine the performace parameters over time. The first of a series of experiments in which TiN electrodes are studied in a Vapor Exposure Test Cell is described here, with preliminary results from electrochemical measurements made on the cell. The TiN electrodes tested here perform well, with minimal degradation over 1000 hours of operation at 850 degree C.
