High power density nuclear battery prototype based on diamond Schottky diodes - ScienceDirect
High density, but needs nickel-63. The diamond energy conversion cells may be usable for carbon-14 use as well however.

Interesting tritium based betavoltaic battery/power generator for small applications, such as implanted medical devices. Arguably, getting tritium and producing the devices seems to be easier than other radioisotopes from a regulatory perspective.

These guys may be involved with the NASA guy studying a nanotube matrix as a direct alphavoltaic energy harvestor for an RTG, as nanotubes are self-annealing/repairing under electric current (electromigration).
