Fan Shanhui and his research team at Stanford University developed the latest wireless charging system and injected a booster for the commercialization of wireless charging technology.
In fact, the concept of wireless charging is very good, we only need to contact the device with the charging pad, no need to connect to charge, get rid of the trouble caused by a variety of wiring interfaces. However, in the commercialization of this idea, there has always been a problem that the wireless charging equipment is limited in space. Recently, scientists have shown that the introduction of quantum mechanics theory will probably help us solve this problem.
Currently, wireless or inductive charging uses electromagnetic fields to achieve short-distance energy transmission. This is why mobile phones or other devices must remain near the wireless keyboard to achieve charging. But recently, Fan Shanhui and her team at Stanford University published an article in the journal Nature, detailing an improved wireless charging system and demonstrating that they reached a meter distance between the charger and the device. In the case of, you can also achieve the goal of charging. This means that even if the device is moved while the device is charging, power transmission will not be interrupted.
The wireless charging system creates a self-regulating current charger using a quantum mechanical principle with parity and time symmetry, and the connected amplifier automatically controls the current between the transmitter and the receiver. As the device is further away from the charger, the amplifier automatically adjusts the power to ensure uniform and uninterrupted power transfer.
However, for the majority of manufacturers, the road to commercialization of this technology is still long. Currently, the research team's experiments only involve powering LED bulbs. They also need time to perform relevant performance testing and parameter data summarization on mobile phones or similar devices, and to improve the performance of wireless charging systems. However, this is an encouraging step. Ultimately, this technology can achieve fine-tuning over longer distances.
According to New Scientist, the team ultimately hopes to apply this technology to solar panels above the Earth’s atmosphere, thereby increasing the amount and efficiency of solar power generation. In the future, the maturity of this technology will have a significant impact. This is undoubtedly a technology worthy of attention and investment.
