Another possibility is that fast daughter nuclei rip through the lattice
creating lots of free electron - ion pairs. As the electrons return to the ions
in a strong magnetic field, they will emit cyclotron radiation (or would in free
space). If this can be captured resonantly, one could end up with a system where
nuclear energy is converted mostly into electrical energy, with only a minority
left over as heat.
