From VNU Network:
US researchers have claimed a breakthrough that promises nuclear battery technology with a lifespan measured in decades.
The project, which is in development at the US University of Rochester, has demonstrated an enhanced fabrication method that “in its roughest form” is already 10 times more efficient than current nuclear batteries.
The academics claim that once refined the technology has the potential to be nearly 200 times more efficient.
“Our society is placing ever-higher demands for power from all kinds of devices,” said Philippe Fauchet, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Rochester, and co-author of the research.
