Batteries that run on BETA DECAY?! How exactly does a nuclear diamond battery work and why would we even want one?This Fluoride Battery Could Mean Phone Batteries That Last a Week - https://youtu.be/kPXQ6zNFFaIRead More: Nuclear Batteryhttp://www.ijlemr.com/papers/volume3-issue4/31-IJLEMR-33180.pdf "Like nuclear reactors nuclear battery generates electricity from radiation energy, but differ from them as they do not use a chain reaction. Also known as Atomic Battery andRadioisotope Generator, these batteries generate power in the range of 10 KW to 100 KW. Nuclear batteries hasa life span of decades and has the potential to be almost 200 times more efficient than presently availablebatteries."‘Diamond-age’ of power generation as nuclear batteries developedhttp://www.bristol.ac.uk/news/2016/november/diamond-power.html "Tom Scott, Professor in Materials in the University’s Interface Analysis Centre and a member of the Cabot Institute, said: “There are no moving parts involved, no emissions generated and no maintenance required, just direct electricity generation. By encapsulating radioactive material inside diamonds, we turn a long-term problem of nuclear waste into a nuclear-powered battery and a long-term supply of clean energy.”"A 25-Year Batteryhttps://www.technologyreview.com/s/416312/a-25-year-battery/ "Widetronix’s batteries are made up of a metal foil impregnated with tritium isotopes and a thin chip of the semiconductor silicon carbide, which can convert 30 percent of the beta particles that hit it into an electrical current. “Silicon carbide is very robust, and when we thin it down, it becomes flexible,” says Widetronix CEO Jonathan Greene." ____________________Elements is more than just a science show.
