The PlasmaVolt is a device developed by inventor and experimenter Ted Gagnon that uses a plasma-vortex to allow the generation of electricity in a low-pressure reactor cavity. While the details of the PlasmaVolt are still proprietary, the device is covered under both US and International Patents, and McDonnough tells me that they have a prototype device on site that has been delivering a constant 50-watt electrical output for several months. In addition to generating electrical energy, the PlasmaVolt generates K40, which McDonnough plans to use in Betavoltaic's nuclear-batteries, due to its high-level of safety and very long decay times.
