City Labs, Inc., a Florida corporation, designs, develops, and manufactures proprietary long-life betavoltaic batteries used in defense, electronics, homeland security, and medical device technologies. Dr. Peter Cabauy and Mr. Denset Serralta, co-founders of City Labs, recognized that chemical (lithium) batteries suffer from significant drawbacks. These batteries are short lived, need to be replaced frequently, are limited to narrow temperature ranges, have explosive and toxic risks, and are generally low in energy density. Billions of dollars of lithium batteries are sold annually with such limitations.
The City Labs team developed the NanoTritium™ betavoltaic battery, which is a small, reliable, long-life power source capable of continuously working in adverse environments for over 20 years. The Corporation’s technology creates energy through the use of tritium (a radioisotope of hydrogen) that is now safely utilized in many products such as medical tracers, exit signs, watch faces, and gun sights.
The basic concept of operation for a betavoltaic is shown in the below figure. Beta particles (derived from tritium decay) enter the power source’s semiconductor p-n junction, creating electron-hole pairs (EHP) as they interact with lattice atoms. Typically, a 5.0 KeV beta particle will create nearly a thousand EHPs, and those created in or within a few microns of the intrinsic (or depletion) region contribute to the generated current collected at the contacts. The holes are accelerated to the p-side collector,whereas the electrons are accelerated to the n-side collector. The subsequent open-circuit voltage is proportional to the band-gap energy of the semiconductor material.
City Labs’ patented NanoTritium™ technology is recognized by an independent third-party as having the highest reported combination of power- and energy-density for any betavoltaic power source. Defense agencies and contractors have affirmatively vetted City Labs’ technology for various defense-related applications. In July 2010, City Labs was awarded a $1 million dollar U.S. Air Force contract for development of a betavoltaic power source for the security of defense weapons. It has soldits Generally Licensed batteries to Lockheed Martin, NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and other defense agencies. In 2012, City Labs successfully launched the first commercial version of its NanoTritiumTM long-life betavoltaic battery for defense electronics encryption. Recognizing the superior market potential of affordable high energy-density betavoltaics to power medical devices and sensors, the Corporation has filed patents for an improved higher-power battery that it seeks to refine and manufacture.
Peter Cabauy, PhD is co-founder, Chief Executive Officer and a director of City Labs, Inc. In 2002, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in Applied Physics. His thesis work was in Quantum Information Physics at Argonne National Laboratories (ANL), and he co-authored a publication with his thesis advisor, Dr. Paul Benioff, a seminal pioneer in the field of Quantum Computing. While completing his doctorate, he also worked on a microelectronics research project at a Department of Defense (DOD) Laboratory. In 2003, he founded and directed the Office of Entrepreneurial Science at Florida International University advising in intellectual property matters, and laying the groundwork for its technology incubator program. In 2005, Dr. Cabauy co-founded City Labs where his diverse experience in technology entrepreneurship, experimental and theoretical physics has been instrumental in both structuring the company and developing its product line.
Three-Dimensional Mid-Air Acoustic Manipulation
Acoustic levitation (also: Acoustophoresis) is a method for suspending matter in a medium by using acoustic radiation pressure from intense sound waves in the medium.
Sometimes ultrasonic frequencies can be used to levitate objects, thus creating no sound heard by the human ear, such as was demonstrated at Otsuka Lab, while others use audible frequencies. There are various ways of launching the sound wave, from creating a wave underneath the object and reflecting it back to its source, to using a (transparent) tank to create a large acoustic field.
Acoustic levitation is usually used for containerless processing which has become more important of late due to the small size and resistance of microchips and other such things in industry. Containerless processing may also be used for applications requiring very-high-purity materials or chemical reactions too rigorous to happen in a container. This method is harder to control than other methods of containerless processing such as electromagnetic levitation but has the advantage of being able to levitate nonconducting materials.
By 2013, acoustic levitation had progressed from motionless levitation to controllably moving hovering objects, an ability useful in the pharmaceutical and electronics industries. A prototype device involved a chessboard-like array of square acoustic emitters that move an object from one square to another by slowly lowering the sound intensity emitted from one square while increasing the sound intensity from the other.
There is no theoretical limit to the force induced by acoustic levitation given a sufficient sound pressure level, but current systems have lifted at most a few kilograms.
Acoustic levitators are used mostly in industry however some products are commercially available to the public.
Electric car manufacturer Tesla Motors has released all its patents to the public domain in a bid to accelerate development of electric vehicle technology.
In a blog post Thursday, CEO Elon Musk wrote that Tesla has removed the patents from the wall at the company’s Palo Alto headquarters in the spirit of the open source movement.
Tesla Model S gets Consumer Reports’ highest score
Electric car drivers hope more charging stations will reduce ‘range anxiety’
“Tesla Motors was created to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport. If we clear a path to the creation of compelling electric vehicles, but then lay intellectual property landmines behind us to inhibit others, we are acting in a manner contrary to that goal. Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use our technology,” he wrote in the posting.
Musk said Tesla took out the patents because it feared big car companies would copy its technology, but then discovered the traditional motor industry was not moving swiftly into this area.
“At best, the large automakers are producing electric cars with limited range in limited volume. Some produce no zero emission cars at all,” he said.
Musk pointed to the role the electric car could play in addressing the amount of greenhouse gases released into the air, if enough of them were made to replace vehicles that burn fossil fuels.
“Given that annual new vehicle production is approaching 100 million per year and the global fleet is approximately two billion cars, it is impossible for Tesla to build electric cars fast enough to address the carbon crisis,” he said.
“ By the same token, it means the market is enormous. Our true competition is not the small trickle of non-Tesla electric cars being produced, but rather the enormous flood of gasoline cars pouring out of the world’s factories every day.”
Tesla is maker of the $70,000 US Model S, an electric car that has been widely adopted but ran into problems last year when footage hit YouTube of a Tesla on fire. There were 6,900 Model S cars sold in the first quarter after their release.
The company has released the car in Canada, moved into the U.K. in June and also has plans for China.
Tesla says it wants to encourage talented engineers from around the world to work to improve batteries and other electric car technology.
At the beginning of this year, Tesla had 203 patents covering batteries and other key features. The earliest any of Tesla’s current patents expires is 2026, so the Palo Alto, California is relinquishing a potentially valuable long-term advantage.
Stifel analyst James Albertine says the announcement signals Tesla is open to collaboration as it ramps up production. It currently makes one vehicle, the Model S sedan.
In a Wimshurst machine, the two insulated discs and their metal sectors rotate in opposite directions passing the crossed metal neutralizer bars and their brushes. An imbalance of charges is induced, amplified, and collected by two pairs of metal combs with points placed near the surfaces of each disk. These collectors are mounted on insulating supports and connected to the output terminals. The positive feedback increases the accumulating charges exponentially until the dielectric breakdown voltage of the air is reached and an electric spark jumps across the gap.
This can be the power source for a tesla coil and be utilized to transmit wireless energy.
I am personalty building one, at this time
recycle ordinary trash into hi-voltage capacitors.
here is video on the current build
Demonstration of a dissectible capacitor or dissectible Leyden jar and an explanation of how it works. I charge it up to a high voltage using a Wimshurst machine and then take it apart. When I do, the voltage on the plates rises and, through ionization, charge moves from the plates to the dielectric container. This leaves the plates mostly discharged. I can even touch the plates together, to prove they’re discharged. When I reassemble the capacitor/Leyden jar, the charge is still on the dielectric and so I get a spark.
In March of 2014, a small group of independent engineers and developers released to the public open-source plans for a continuously running fuel-less electricity generator based on a patent by Nikola Tesla, and re-designed by inventor James Robitaille. Calling it the Quantum Energy Generator, or QEG, the portable device is supposedly capable of producing enough electricity to power a modern home, and is about the size and weight of a home gas generator.
“The Quantum Electric Generator system (QEG) is an adaptation of one of Nikola Tesla’s many patented electrical
generator / dynamo / alternator designs. The particular patent referenced is No. 511,916, titled simply “Electric
Generator”, and dated January 2, 1894 (see back of this manual). The adaptation is a conversion from a linear
system, to a rotary system.
The QEG prototype is scaled to produce electrical power in the range of 10-15 kW (kilowatts) continuously, and
can be set up to provide either 120 Volt or 230-240 Volt single phase output. We are also planning future
designs to provide 3-phase power.” [Fix The World]
Developed by an organization known as the ‘Fix the World Council,’ and promoted by the lively Hopegirl, the prototype for the QEG was recently crowd-funded by over 600 independent contributors, and the plans for the QEG have been made available to the public for download here: qeg-user-manual-3-25-14.pdf
Inventor Nikola Tesla imagined the technology to transmit energy through thin air almost a century ago, but experimental attempts at the feat have so far resulted in cumbersome devices that only work
over very small distances. But now, Duke University researchers have demonstrated the feasibility of wireless power transfer using low-frequency magnetic fields over distances much larger than the size of the transmitter and receiver. Duke University students discovered metamaterial superlens that vastly improves wireless power transfer.

Two things that are always cool: Tesla coils and Nerf guns. One thing that’s cooler than those two things: a freaking Tesla coil Nerf gun. That’s right. Rob Flickenger converted a Nerf gun into a handheld Tesla coil. Freaking. Sweet.
Here’s how Flickenger and Rusty Oliver of the HazardFactory made the gun Tesla coil-ready:
He made an aluminum version of the plastic toy. He gathered cans, scrap metal, and even a bicycle fender and melted it all down. Then he and Oliver created a cast of the Nerf gun out of sand and clay and poured in the molten aluminum. After it hardened, Flickenger milled excess metal from the interior using a CNC machine and cleaned up the edges with a rotary tool.
Flickenger, who taught himself the physics of high-voltage electricity, used a transformer from an old TV, a battery from a power drill and a fan from an old computer server for the Tesla coil portion. Check out the video below and see the science behind the Tesla Coil Nerf Gun at PopSci. [Pop Sci]
High School Kids Build What Might Be the World’s Most Efficient Electric Car
Pending confirmation by the folks at Guinness, a group of students at DeLaSalle high school in Kansas City will be able to say they’ve built the world’s most efficient electric car, a see-thru, F1-style racer that gets 300mpg equivalent.
OK, they got some help from the folks at Bridgestone America, the world’s largest tire company, who contributed resources and supplied the team with high-efficiency Ecopia EP100 tires, though the car was conceived of and developed as a class project.
The ultra light weight plug-in electric was built with the customized chassis of 2000 Lola Indy. During a recent test at Bridgestone’s Texas Proving Grounds, the car got the equivalent of 300 miles per gallon fuel economy, an amazing feat the students think qualifies for the world record. Their next project? Building a vehicle that harnesses the elusive power of the atomic wedgie.
