Beta Emitter Power Supplies

Challenges Ahead

Challenges Ahead

The power output of a Betavoltaic cell is not neccessarily uniform over its lifetime. The internal beta emitter decays, slowly decreasing in activity, and outputing less and less power.
Betavoltaic batteries suffer internal damage from the electrons activity within.
Betavoltaic batteries may be politically controversial, and therefore licensing may be an issue.
May need to develop recovery procedures for spent Betavoltaic batteries.
