Title: Electrochemical cells and methods of manufacturing the same

Abstract

Electrochemical cells and methods of making electrochemical cells are described herein. In some embodiments, an apparatus includes a multi-layer sheet for encasing an electrode material for an electrochemical cell. The multi-layer sheet including an outer layer, an intermediate layer that includes a conductive substrate, and an inner layer disposed on a portion of the conductive substrate. The intermediate layer is disposed between the outer layer and the inner layer. The inner layer defines an opening through which a conductive region of the intermediate layer is exposed such that the electrode material can be electrically connected to the conductive region. Thus, the intermediate layer can serve as a current collector for the electrochemical cell.

  • A stainless steel PWR fuel element and its manufacture are described. A number of stainless steel rods containing UO/sub 2/ pellets are formed into a bundle to the ends of which flow nozzles are attached. A brazing fixture for this purpose is described. Short tubular ferrules are placed between the rods for spacing and rigidity Tubes are provided in some of the spaces for control rod movement. The structure offers mechanical integrity, corrosion resistance, adequate coolant flow, and satisfactory nuclear properties at an economy (T.R.H.)
