The development of advanced batteries for micropower applications is intimately linked to the availability of new materials and the development of miniature battery designs. The need for such new power sources results directly from the continuing evolution of smaller electronic circuitry with very high component density. The range of power requirements is illustrated by the variety of relatively new miniature portable electronic devices such as cardiac pacemakers, hearing aids, smart cards, personal gas monitors, and remote sensors with RF capability.
