Caption

Pacemaker. Surgeons implanting a cardiac pacemaker powered by a nuclear battery. The battery contains promethium which decays by releasing beta-particles (electrons). These collide with semiconducting materials to generate a current. Modern pacemakers use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries instead. Photographed at the Ivan Pavlov Medical Institute, St.Petersburg, in 1979.
