asteroza + fluorescent   8

Blaze Bioscience
These guys are marketing a tumor fluorescent dye marker that homes in on cancer cells. So a dark operating room will show glowing cancers, reducing the amount of excess healthy tissue to be removed.

A Research Program Nuclear Energy Conversion [abstract]
Use radiation to fluoresce a material, recover the photon energy with a wide bandgap solar cell. Simple semi-direct solid state electricity cycle with no moving parts. Interesting route is an RTG style plant with mirrors/fiberoptics feeding the solar array. Use natural case conductive cooling with a naturally decaying core rather than an active fission reaction. I wonder if you could increase the cycle efficiency with betavoltaics at the fluorescing material position? I wonder if you do some quantum dot well stuff to tune the light/photon outputs to better match the solar cells?
