Researchers from the University of Bristol have discovered a method to convert nuclear waste into long-lasting batteries using diamonds. That's right, this new technology transforms thousands of tons of toxic nuclear waste into lab-grown diamond batteries that could last essentially forever. Early prototypes of the battery use nickel-63 as the radiation source, which is encased within the man-made diamond, while carbon-14, a radioactive version of carbon which can be easily harvested from graphite blocks, is next in line for testing. "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," said Tom Scott, Professor in Materials in the University of Bristol's Interface Analysis Center.
