In this study, we demonstrated the use of DNA-CTMA (DC) in combination with PolyVinylidene Fluoride (PVDF)
as a host matrix or separator for Lithium based electrolyte to form solid polymer/gel like electrolyte for potential
application in Li-ion batteries. The addition of DC provided a better thermal stability of the composite electrolyte as
shown by the thermos-gravimetric analysis (TGA). The AC conductivity measurements suggest that the addition of
DC to the gel electrolyte had no effect on the overall ionic conductivity of the composite. The obtained films are
flexible with high mechanical stretch-ability as compared to the gel type electrolytes only.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
