– Betavoltaic cells work on the principle of stimulated nuclear beta-decay. When a beta-decay event happens, a high-energy electron is released, which can be captured and used to create a small, high-voltage current.

In McDonnough’s model, the high-voltage electrical charge from the beta-events also stimulates further decay events, which may allow the creation of a battery capable of producing abundant, safe and clean electric energy.

The Feb 26th conference event features Bryan St. Clair & Ross Small on Inertial Propulsion, Michael McDonnough on Stimulated Beta-Decay Nuclear Batteries, Todd Desiato on the Graviflyer and John Hutchison on the Hutchison Effect. Mark Sokol & Falcon Space provide detailed lab updates and the results of their latest experiments, and we’ll be finishing off the event with an open discussion and ad hoc presentations by conference attendees!
