Tom Scott, a Professor in Materials at the University of Bristol Interface Analysis Centre, 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.”
Plans are in place for the first carbon-14 batteries to be created in the New Year, which would deliver an electrical charge of just 300 joules each day, compared with a standard and commonly used AA battery which outputs 14,000 joules per day.
This could be an energy friendly alternative to current batteries, with interests from scientists at NASA, as well as technology firms which would use them for internet devices.
