what do? i unironically just discovered a new material which can be made from a high specific power radioisotope which acts as a all in one power supply. emits the radiation, collects the radiation and converts it to electrical current, at 75+% fucking efficiency with a power producing lifetime of a decade... the new material even diluted by other atoms in the material, still averages out to 0.7 watts per gram ( for reference plutonium 238 used for RTG's is 0.5 watts/gram) . All with zero negative radiation emission like gamma rays or neutrons shielding would be provided by 15 micron gold fucking foil. what do i do /sci/? its not gonna run a car anytime soon ( although it technically could) because energy effiency to MAKE the material is low, but for medical implants and prosthetics and space probes and rovers and shit this could REPLACE PU 238 and Sr 90.

I like the narrative in the image and lets be clear.
Its lifted mostly from Adam Curtis.
Which is fine, but Adam Curtis has his own paranoia and the OP in the image fell into the same apocalyptic narrative which the Left and Right subgroups fall into who think that civilization will end next week.

The Watchowsky sisters made a movie called Cloud Atlas which explores these ideas with "Consumer Speak" and corporate religion.

All in all 7/10. Just coolit on the French Revolution bits.
Remember Curtis' other contention: We're locked into negative freedom which means which means revolutions such as the French is no longer possible.

Give it all out for free in your name. Spam the details everywhere until they cannot be erased.
If you are serious someone is probably going to come for you to shut you up, as paranoid as that may sound. When you threaten energy monopolies they tend to react.
Anyways, best of luck anon. It was a pleasure being able to talk to you, if even for a brief moment.

The fact that you're honest about this means I think you might actually have something. If you have a demonstration, as in a working model, not just calculations, just take it to some company and say "buy the rights to my thing". Make sure it's patented first, send a copy of a detailed plan of how to build it to yourself in the post. Maybe get a lawyer beforehand if you're confident it actually definitely works, otherwise get one after they agree to buy the patent from you to negotiate terms.
What company to go to? It depends what you think it's main application will be. See who makes these things currently. You could always just go to NASA.
>>13418541
It should be "an all in one", it's also usually hyphenated: "all-in-one".

Pretty sure it can also be A instead of AN if what you are referring too is singular not plural, no other all in one nuclear battery exists so A is correct, when another one is made then it would become AN

Ackchyually, after you set up a dead man's switch you can try contacting SpaceX (or maybe Musk directly if that's possible). He very much has vested interest in better batteries even if they can't yet power a car for obvious reasons.

Yes you are correct or a 40 kg version could power a car for a decade

>>13422136

It's not. It COULD run a car, but it wouldn't be energy efficient to do so, less than 1% energy efficient to "charge" it

>>13422288
>>13422285
Well its probably still in the question how a bigger sized Battery like this would work, regarding radiation, and longevity and poweroutput. If OP is right though. He discovered sometihngh like the holy grail in Batterytechnology. Allthough The question here is the material. I doubt theres enough Of whatever it needs on the planet to provide every human beeing such a battery

I just looked up Betavbltaics, known Efficiency levels range around 33% with tritium, a rather abundand Ressource(waste product of nuclear reactor) as OP himself claimed. Allthough I don't tihnk it is necessarily Tritium. If it is though, congrats he managed ot get 70% efficiency out of a betavoltaic battery. He could literally become something like Ironman with it. Imagine powering an exoskeleton with a 40kg battery(if it even needs that much). FOR FUCKING DECADES.
>>
>>13425903
Also Common Beta emittors are Nickel, Tritium, Carbon, Phosphorus, Strontium, Ytrium, Plutonium. I'm really curious Which one OP used. Since he Talked about easy shielding the Emittor seems to be low energy, thus its most likely tritium or Carbon.

Am I wrong with my Semi knowledge of betavoltaics?

Am just supercurious how he could have gotten such a material

Great for submarines too, that battery of yours. I happen to know of a similar but quite different discovery that will make a portable very energy dense device myself. It will replace fossil fuels in most fields. I can hardly wait to get my patent on that. Oil stocks will drop hard.

>Keyword Starlight
The inventor never disclosed the formula because it was not practically something that can remain patent protected (really, it can't be) and maybe he also had some doubts about all the nuclear powers primarily getting interested because of their weapons of mass destruction. [Trolling them seemed like the better option at the time, maybe?]

But some Youtube dude found out how to make it anyhow:
