According to a report on an international website, a California company has developed a nano-diamond battery from nuclear waste that can be charged for more than 5,000 years.
Battery power is derived from the radioactive material used in nuclear reactors. Scientists say the Nano Diamond battery is made of the hardest metal diamond, emitting less radiation than the human body.
Scientists say they have completed 2 laboratory tests of the said battery; the battery was charged to 40% by solar power, which is a significant achievement because it usually uses 15 to 20% of solar power. It is charged.
Experts say they will soon be able to charge the battery to 90%.
The battery is surrounded by several protective layers of synthetic diamond, the hardest metal. The energy from the isotope is absorbed into the diamond by a process called elastic scattering, which is used to generate electricity.
Energy will be stored in secondary charge storage such as capacitors, supercapacitors, and cells, etc. In addition, this battery is capable of automatically charging itself. The battery, developed in 2016, can last up to 7746 years.
The company says the first NDB commercial prototype battery will be available later this year, and several companies, including an aerospace company, are among the buyers.
