What’s shown here is a small circuit board mount design. The nano diamond battery has the potential to completely subvert the energy equation because it never needs to be charged and can last for many years. The California company NDB says its nano diamond batteries will revolutionize the energy equation, just like a small nuclear generator. They last 10 to 28, 000 years without charging. < / P > < p > they will provide higher power density than lithium ion. They are almost indestructible and completely safe in an electric car crash. In some applications, such as electric vehicles, despite their huge advantages, they are much cheaper than current lithium-ion battery packs. At the core of each battery is a small piece of recycled nuclear waste. The graphite nuclear reactor components used in NDB absorb the radiation from the nuclear fuel rods and are radioactive in themselves. If left untreated, it is a high-level nuclear waste: dangerous, difficult to store, expensive, and with a long half-life. < / P > < p > this graphite is rich in carbon-14 radioisotopes. It decays into nitrogen through beta decay, which releases an antineutron and a beta decay electron. NDB purified the graphite and used it to make tiny carbon-14 diamonds. The diamond structure acts as a semiconductor and a heat sink, collecting and transmitting electrical charges. The complete coating of the radiocarbon-14 diamond is a cheap, non radioactive, laboratory made carbon-12 diamond, which contains high-energy particles to prevent radiation leakage and acts as an ultra hard protective and tamper proof layer. < / P > < p > to make batteries, several layers of the nanodiamond material were stacked and stored with a tiny integrated circuit board and a small supercapacitor to collect, store and distribute charges instantly. NDB indicates that it will conform to any shape or standard, including AA, AAA, 18650, 2170 or various custom sizes. So what you get is a tiny micro generator in the shape of a battery that never needs to be recharged – NDB says it costs as much as, and sometimes much less than, current lithium batteries. Some suppliers of original nuclear waste will pay NDB to take the waste from them, which will also help to achieve this equation. < p > < p > NDB tells us that the radiation level of the battery will be lower than that of the human body, making it completely safe in various applications. On a small scale, these applications can include pacemaker batteries and other electronic implants whose long life will prevent the wearer from undergoing replacement surgery. They can also be placed directly on the circuit board to provide power for the life of the device. On the iPhone, a battery of the same size can charge the iPhone from zero to full five times an hour. And it can be extended to the size of an electric car, providing super high power density in a battery pack that can last for 90 years, something that can be pulled out of your old car and put into a new one. If one part of the battery fails, the active nano diamond part can be recycled to another battery for reuse. For low-power sensors, this battery can power up to 28000 years, < / P > < p > in the words of Dr. John Shawe Taylor, President of UNESCO and professor of University College London, NDB has the potential to solve the major global carbon emission problem without expensive infrastructure and negative impact on the environment.
