Abstract

Battery is very important for the present daily life, especially for portable devices. The longer utilization time the better performance of battery. Betavoltaic battery is a device that converts energy from beta decays of radioactive nuclide into electric current. One of merits of the later battery is the life time that can be more than ten years without recharging. To develop the betavoltaic battery for energy source of portable devices we have performed a preliminary simulation design of betavoltaic battery using Pm-147 and Co-60 a beta emitter radionuclides with n-GaAs substrate. From the results we found that the combination of Pm-147 with n-GaAs substrate results in 9.0% of efficiency and higher output current compared to references.
