Claims

1. An electrical energy generator for generating electric energy comprising:

a vessel constructed of an airtight, electrically insulating material, said vessel including a base and an inner cylindrical wall defining a cavity, the vessel further including:

  • (a) a negatively charged corona wire made of a low work function delta-ray emissive material which functions as an electron emitter, and including germanium, silicon or lead-sulfide for emitting delta ray electrons when bombarded with high energy alpha particles;
  • (b) a high work function electron collector having a cylindrical shape and made of palladium (Pd) or an activated carbon and located coaxially inside the vessel;
  • (c) a radon gas that decays to a radio isotope having an energy level greater than 6.06 MeV, which expands and thereby fills the cavity of the vessel; and
  • (d) first and second electrically conductive pins being attached to the base through airtight seal and facing away from the cavity, the first pin being electrically connected to the corona wire and the second pin being electrically connected to the high work function electron collector,

wherein the corona wire is initially charged through an external negative charge applied at the first pin, and the high work function electron collector is initially charged through an external positive charge applied at the second pin, and
wherein, after charging of the corona wire and the high work function electron collector, the first and second pins act as cathode and anode respectively of the electrical energy generator.
