Researchers create blueprint for ‘quantum battery’ that doesn’t lose charge

Scientists from the universities of Alberta and Toronto developed a blueprint for a new quantum battery that doesn’t leak charge.

The research team considered an open quantum network model with high structural symmetry as a platform for storing excitonic energy — energy harnessed when an electron absorbs a sufficiently energetic photon of light. Using this model, they showed it is possible to store energy without any loss.

The study, “Loss-Free Excitonic Quantum Battery,” was published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C.
