Direct Energy Conversion discusses both the physics behind energy conversion processes and a wide variety of energy conversion devices. A direct energy conversion process converts one form of energy to another through a single process. The first half of this book surveys multiple devices that convert to or from electricity including piezoelectric devices, antennas, solar cells, light emitting.   Direct Energy Conversion is written for the engineer with an interest in the performance of energy conversion processes that involve direct methods of producing electric power from heat and other primary sources. It examines the means available for converting heat to electricity without the intermediate generation of rotating shaft s: 2.

  Direct conversion of energy from isotope decay (either alpha or beta particles) is accomplished using charge separation structures such as acceptor/donor doped (PN) junctions Radioisotope Thermal Generators (RTGs) (Prelas et al., Prelas, M. A., Weaver, C. L., and Watermann, M. L.,A review of nuclear batteries. Energy transformation, also known as energy conversion, is the process of changing energy from one form to physics, energy is a quantity that provides the capacity to perform work (e.g. lifting an object) or provides heat. In addition to being convertible, according to the law of conservation of energy, energy is transferable to a different location or object, but it cannot be.
