Title: Charge generating devices and methods of making and use thereof

Abstract

Provided herein are charge generating devices and methods of making and use thereof. The charge generating devices comprise a substrate having a top surface; a plurality of spaced-apart three-dimensional elements disposed on the top surface of the substrate; and a plurality of cavities formed by the plurality of spaced-apart three-dimensional elements, the plurality of cavities being the area between the plurality of spaced-apart three-dimensional elements. The charge generating devices can further comprise a radioactive layer disposed on at least a portion of the plurality of spaced-apart three-dimensional elements and the top surface such that the plurality of cavities and the top surface are substantially coated by the radioactive layer. In some examples, the charge generating devices can comprise a radiation material and/or a scintillating material disposed within at least a portion of the plurality of cavities.
