"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 and
Radioisotope Generator, these batteries generate power in the range of 10 KW to 100 KW. Nuclear batteries has
a life span of decades and has the potential to be almost 200 times more efficient than presently available
batteries."

"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.”"

"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."
