Revolution in charging up devices on the go

There has been a continuous progress when we talk about the energy transfer among devices. Researchers have developed new device that transfers energy without the use of wires, which means it can simply charge your Smartphone, laptop and other devices which require energy wireless.

The device is based on the use of resonators, which are made with radial photonic crystals. It has a simple mechanism; one of them works as a transmitter while the device, which is to be charged, is fixed with the other part of the wireless charging system. Resonant coupling is produced which is responsible for charging up the device.

The most important feature of the charging equipment is that it would be used not only for charging devices but it can also supply power to certain equipments which require charge to work, such as keyboards, speakers, microphone etc. In large IT industries, it can be used in robots, some types of vehicles etc.

Researchers quote that “although the device may seem futuristic but they will become universal due to the current modifications in the charging infrastructure”. The technology could be working on the same mechanism as WIFI networks. As Jorge Carbonell, a researcher working on the project explained the WIFI network phenomenon of the charging device.

Researchers after first laboratory simulations and calculations of the system’s performance have started working on the first prototype of the equipment. The technology may be costly at the beginning but after more modifications, the wireless charging device would be available affordable prices.
