NUCLEAR WASTE BATTERIES THAT LAST THOUSANDS OF YEARS

Diamond batteries, which are highly durable, provide charge for thousands of years and serve well as a low-voltage energy source. There are several low-voltage devices like pacemakers, satellites, and space probe components that cannot be easily accessed for replacement of their batteries.

A team of scientists from the University of Bristol in the UK has grown an artificial diamond in the lab. When placed in a radioactive radiation field, it generates a small electrical current. This development is expected to provide solutions for better management of nuclear waste and make clean electricity available
