A plan to build the world’s fastest charging battery
The University of Adelaide’s newest Ramsay Fellow, Dr James Quach, aims to build world’s fastest charging battery.
Dr Quach will harness the unique properties of quantum mechanics with the aim of building the world’s first quantum battery, a new super battery with the potential for instantaneous charging.
Once built, the quantum battery could replace conventional batteries used in small electronic devices. Eventually it is hoped larger quantum batteries could provide opportunities for the renewable energy sector.
Dr Quach, who is an expert in quantum physics, has joined the School of Physical Sciences for four years under a Ramsay Fellowship. He will be working within the Precision Measurement Group in the University’s Institute for Photonics & Advanced Sensing (IPAS).
