The discussions about renewable energies are heated up a little more almost every week. With the new technologies and the increasing number of electric vehicles, there is therefore a need for new ways to generate electricity and transmit it as efficiently and sustainably as possible.

The developments in the field of eMobility are impressive in this respect. Batteries are now much better developed than they were for a long time. The first batteries had too low an energy density, which led to the low range that is still frequently used as an argument today. In the meantime, the possible distances with one charge have been brought to an acceptable level for many cars, but one issue remains: the charging time.

If you try to charge a car at home, it can take up to ten hours. With a Supercharger, it still takes 20 – 40 minutes. Due to the poorly developed infrastructure so far, this is actually unthinkable, as long lines would gather in front of the charging stations to get their car working at all.

However, a solution that has now emerged could solve the problem, the so-called quantum charging. The concept from quantum physics has led to research on the first quantum batteries, which relies on using quantum resources, such as entanglement, to significantly speed up the charging process. In entanglement, for example, all cells within the battery are charged simultaneously and collectively.

In a recent experiment, it was found that it may be possible to achieve 200 times the charging speed of a normal battery with a quantum battery. For example, the charging time at home would be reduced from ten hours to three minutes. At Superchargers even to a few seconds.

 

However, this new type of battery can do much more than just get electric cars on the road. The quantum battery can also do great things in fusion power plants and offer new possibilities.

However, according to researchers, quantum technology is still in its infancy, but the new results are encouraging for a solution soon and a revolution in electric mobility.
