Carbon-12 Diamond Radiation Shield creating a Safe Battery
NDB takes the ethical responsibility of public safety extremely seriously to develop a safe battery.
As such, NDB has carried out extensive safety measures to protect the public.
The device is designed to perform above and beyond the minimum requirement.
NDB conforms comfortably to both national and international safety standards set by governing bodies such as ISO, IEC, OSHA, HSE, and IAEA amongst others.
NDB is a safe battery that harvests energy from β-radiation to generate electricity using a diamond. Another way of looking at this is that because diamond is a good absorber of β-radiation. It could generate electricity by converting the absorbed radiation energy into electricity.
This radiation, when exposed directly and unshielded, is harmful to humans. However, NDB has a radiation shield coated on the outside made from the non-radioactive diamond that absorbs and stops the radiation comprehensively.
Because there is a substantial amount of diamond there to contain the radiation. There is less radiation coming out from the NDB than what you are exposed to naturally on a day to day basis as background radiation.
Another way of looking at it is that a human body emits β-radiation naturally because our body is carbon-based. We typically have one C-14 atom out of 1 trillion carbon atoms in our body emitting radiation constantly.
Because NDB contains the β-radiation completely, it releases less radiation than what your body does naturally.
Making NDB a safer entity than your own body.
NDB will also have an additional layer of metal on top to stop secondary radiation. Containing all forms of radiation, making the device completely safe. For both the diamond and the metal. The thickness used in the NDB will be more than twice the required amount for added safety.
When it comes to safe battery technology like the NDB. Wearable tech has the strictest regulation to heating because it comes into contact with the skin.
IEC, the international standard organization, has set the maximum allowable temperature to be 109 °F (43 °C). Therefore to ensure thermal safety, it is essential for NDB to stay below this recommended temperature as a safe battery.
One key fact that works in favor of NDB is the material used in the diamond radiation shield. Diamond is the most thermally conductive material in the world. What this means is that the diamond radiation shield. Which is in direct contact with the NDB core, is going to act as a heatsink.
Allowing the NDB’s core temperature to quickly and efficiently be wicked away, preventing overheating. Even in the absolute worst-case scenario where all of the electricity generated turns into heat.
NDB has a near 100% conformity to the internationally recognized and recommended safety standards.
Making NDB a very thermally stable and reliable safe battery solution.
The majority of the materials used in an NDB is diamond. Both radioactive and non-radioactive. The benefit this brings mechanically is its robustness and the fact that it is tamperproof creating a safe battery.
Therefore if for instance, two electric vehicles that are powered by NDB is to have a head-on collision. The last thing that will break in that situation is the NDB.
Simply because diamond, the base material of the NDB is the hardest material in existence.
In fact, due to this toughness. Oil excavation drill bits use diamond teeth to deliver crushing blows to rocks. Diamond is so tough that it has a fracture strength of 7,100 MPa. A value is 11.5 times greater than standard steel (316 stainless steel, 620 MPa).
What’s more, because the diamond radiation shield is connected natively to the nuclear diamond core, NDB is in effect a solid block of the diamond. This then contributes to its tamper-proof nature since to access the nuclear material, one would have to cut through the diamond, which requires expensive specialized equipment.
Not only that even if someone was to be able to cut through the diamond, then they will then need to break down the NDB into the form that they want. The fact that they need to go to extreme extents to tamper with NDB is a strong deterrent for any use other than as an NDB as a safe battery.
Atomic agencies studied the content of graphite reflectors and moderators. They found that the area with the highest amount of C-14 is in the core where it was most irradiated.
The core graphite, for example, had 26 times more C-14 than graphite from other parts of the reactor. Therefore, by removing the section with the highest concentration of C-14 from the rest of the graphite.
One could effectively reduce the radiation level of the rest of the graphite to a lower level. The graphite will then be processed to reduce the radiation to an acceptable standard set by the IAEA of 1Bq/g.
The denuclearised graphite is then recycled for other applications once recycled. This process will reduce the amount of radiation in nuclear waste, contributing to public safety as well as recycling.
