Synthesis and characterization of new Ag+ ion conducting glassy systems: x[0.75AgI:0.25AgC1]: (1 – x)[Ag2O:P2O5], where 0.1 < x < 1 in molar weight fraction, are reported. The present glassy electrolytes have been synthesized by melt-quench technique using a high-speed twin roller-quencher. An alternate host salt: “quenched [0.75AgI:0.25AgC1] mixed system/solid solution”, has been used in place of the traditional host AgI. The compositional dependence conductivity studies on the glassy systems: x[0.75AgI:0.25AgC1]:(1 – x)[Ag2O:P2O5] as well as xAgI:(1 – x)[Ag2O:P2O5] prepared identically, indicated that the composition at x = 0.75 exhibited the highest room temperature conductivity (σ ~ 5.5 x 10−3 S cm−1). The composition: 0.75[0.75AgI:0.25AgC1]:0.25[Ag2O:P2O5] has been referred to as optimum conducting composition (OCC). The some basic ion transport parameters viz. ionic conductivity (σ), ionic mobility (μ), mobile ion concentration (n), ionic drift velocity (vd), ion transference number (tion) and activation energy (Ea) values have been characterized with the help of various experimental techniques. A solid state battery was fabricated and its basic cell parameters calculated.
