Invented battery from radioactive nanoalmazs with service life of more than 90 years

NDB declared the development of a nanoalmask battery, the principle of operation of which resembles a nuclear generator.

The key component of the new battery is spent graphite from the details of the nuclear reactor, which absorbed the radiation of the fuel rods and the radioactive themselves themselves. The team found a way not only to use it as an energy bar, but also to make it safe.

NDB cleans graphite with a high content of carbon-14 radioisotope and makes tiny diamonds from it, which, thanks to their structure, act as a semiconductor and heat sink, collecting charge and removing it out. Since this material is subjected to beta decay, the team additionally covers it with a diamond layer of cheap, non-radiocitive carbon-12 isotope. The protective layer not only blocks hazardous radiation, but increases the strength of nanoalmaz.

To create battery elements, several layers of such a nanoscale material are folded and combined with a microcircuit and a small supercapacitor for accumulation, storage and transfer of charge.

According to the developers, such a device is significantly cheaper than existing lithium-ion analogues, while having high power, energy intensity, and its service life exceeds 90 years. When the battery breaks, it can be recycled, and at the end of the service life, only harmless sliding spree products remain.

The existing prototype NDB nanoalmasters is built into the integrated circuit and is able to feed a small sensor, but in the next five years the company plans to scale the device to a car battery.
