The future of tech devices may be battery-free


Today’s Video of the Day from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) describes the development of tech devices that can nearly operate without a battery.

Based on quantum science and engineering principles, the researchers are creating a graphene-based logic device by harnessing the spin of electrons.

According to the experts, the research may ultimately improve the energy efficiency of cell phones, computers, and other battery-dependent tech devices.

Study co-author Ethan Ahn is an assistant professor in Electrical Engineering at UTSA.

“The military needs smaller devices that can operate in remote fields without need to recharge batteries,” said Professor Ahn. “If our zero-power carbon interconnect is successful, it will improve the efficiency of graphene spintronics – a crucial step in advancing the next generation of low-power electronics like quantum computing.”
