The diagram of a dynamo machined p-n junction is shown below. Micro electro mechanical systems MEMS comprise a rapidly expanding research field with potential applications varying from sensors in air bags, wrist-warn GPS receivers, and matchbox size digital cameras to more recent optical applications. Browns first prototype power cell producedtimes as much energy per gram of strontium the energy source than the most powerful thermal battery yet in existence. Can be used in extreme conditions and reduce the rate of replacements.

This process will repeat as long as the source is active. Published on Apr View Download 7. Nucler ECE 4th Year.

On this cantilever beam there is a copper sheet attached to it. Reduces green house and associated effectsFuel used is the nuclear waste from nuclear fission. First the beta particles, which are high-energy electrons, fly spontaneously from the radioactive source.

It consists of a core composed of radioactive elements. As the Ni decays it emits beta particles, which are high-energy electrons that spontaneously fly out of the radioisotope’s unstable nucleus.


The word ‘dainty’ means pretty. These separated electrons and holes streamed away form the junction, producing current. This is very important since the current generated by the powered p-n junction is proportional to the junction area. Effect of silver co-sputtering on amorphous V2O5 thin-films for microbatteries Documents. The following figure shows the experimental setup.

Need for compact, reliable, light weight and long life power supplies. Energy Production Mechanism 5. Unaffected by long period of darkness and radiation. Avoidance of gamma in the decay chain Half life Should be more Cost should be less. New microbatteries a boost for electronics. Amount of energy obtained is very high. Daintiest dynamos [nuclear microbatteries Documents. NASA is trying to harness this technology in space applications.

Lighter with high energy density. Automobiles No need for frequent recharging as in case dynxmos present electric vehicles. To gain social acceptance. Scientists have developed two types of micro nuclear batteries.

The concerned p-n junction microbattwries 13 micro machine channels and the total junction area is Compared with planar p-n Junctions, the three dimensional structure of our device allows for a substantial increase of the junction area and the macro machined channels can be used to store the liquid source.

Thus an electrostatic force of attraction is established between the silicon cantilever and radioactive source.

It is made of a rectangular piece of silicon. The device consists of a small quantity of Ni placed near an ordinary silicon p-n junction – a diode, basically.

They have high energy, typically in the MeV range. Nanostructured negative electrodes based on titania for Li-ion microbatteries Documents.


It is similar to the mechanics of converting sunlight into electricity in a solar panel. Nuclear batteries use the incredible amount of energy released naturally by tiny bits of radio active material without any fission or fusion taking place inside the battery. Beta particles emitted by radioactive gas is captured in Silicon wafer coated with dynamo material. Because of the high energy density nuclear batteries are extremely small in size.

PPT on Nuclear Microbatteries

Chemical batteries require frequent replacements and are bulky. Ppt for Nuclear Power Plant Documents. RTGs are particularly used for generating electricity in space missions. All these difficulties can be overcome up to a large extend by the use of nuclear micro batteries.

A radio isotope electric power system was developed by inventor Paul Brown which was a scientific break through in nuclear power.

As the charge is daintiwst, the deflection of a cantilever beam increases until it contacts a grounded element, thus discharging the beam and causing it to return to its original position. Radioisotope thermo electric generators RTGs exploited the extraordinary potential of radioactive materials for generating electricity.

Understanding the terms used. Radiations Alpha – These are fast moving helium atoms.

They have succeeded by developing nuclear batteries.
