Quantum Batteries Constructed of a Microcavity Enclosing a Molecular Dye


Research paper titled “Superabsorption in an organic microcavity: Toward a quantum battery” from researchers at University of Adelaide (Australia), University of Sheffield (UK), Politecnico di Milano (Italy), University of St Andrews (UK), and Heriot-Watt University.

Abstract (Partial)
“Here, we implement experimentally a paradigmatic model of a quantum battery, constructed of a microcavity enclosing a molecular dye. Ultrafast optical spectroscopy allows us to observe charging dynamics at femtosecond resolution to demonstrate superextensive charging rates and storage capacity, in agreement with our theoretical modeling. We find that decoherence plays an important role in stabilizing energy storage.”
