Could your phone battery last 5730 years?

A team of physicists and chemists from the University of Bristol have developed a new technology that uses nuclear waste to generate electricity in a nuclear-powered diamond battery. The development could solve some of the problems of nuclear waste, clean electricity generation and battery life.

In this talk organised by the South West Nuclear Hub in conjunction with the  Nuclear Institute, Professor Tom Scott will explain how the diamond battery technology has been developed and explore some of its potential applications.
