Scientists Invent Nuclear Waste–Powered Diamond Battery that Lasts Over 5,000 Years

A team of physicists and chemists from the University of Bristol have developed nuclear waste–powered radioactive diamond batteries that last more than 5,000 years. The new technology — which uses a man-made diamond that generates a small electrical current when placed in a radioactive field — could simultaneously help solve the problems of radioactive nuclear waste, clean electricity generation, and battery life, the researchers claim.
