By reading the patent document, the originating energy source, being radiant matter, such as ultraviolet light, provides a charge to a condensor
(capacitor). The capacitor trickle charges thereby ultimatly storing enough energy to produce a supply for an attached device.
Todays microelectronics, dense and ultra-efficient, can easily be operated with minimal current. Radiant energy, could be utilized as a power source
in many applications.
I am only assuming radiant matter would include,...light wavelengths, radioactive isotopes, piziolectric crystals, and the likes.
A rudimentary form of radiant energy conversion would be a solar cell, although in-effecient and expensive.
