With the advent of quantum technologies comes the requirement of building quantum components able to store energy to be used whenever necessary, i.e., quantum batteries. In this paper we exploit an adiabatic protocol to ensure a stable charged state of a three-level quantum battery which allows one to avoid the spontaneous discharging regime. We study the effects of the most relevant sources of noise on the charging process, and, as an experimental proposal, we discuss superconducting transmon…

Quantum Work Capacitances

The possibility of using quantum effects to speed up the charging processes of batteries have been vastly investigated. In order to traslate these ideas into working devices it is however crucial to

Quantum advantage of two-level batteries in the self-discharging process.

By considering quantum batteries disconnected from external charging fields and consumption center, this paper identifies the dissipative effects that lead to charge leakage to the surrounding environment as a self-discharging of QBs in analogy to the inherent decay of the stored charge of conventional classical batteries in a open-circuit configuration.

Quantum advantage in charging cavity and spin batteries by repeated interactions

Recently, an unconditional advantage has been demonstrated for the process of charging of a quantum battery in a collisional model. Motivated by the question of whether such an advantage could be

Entanglement, coherence, and charging process of quantum batteries.

By using a general approach to a two- and three-cell battery, the results suggest that entanglement is not the main resource in quantum batteries, where there is a nontrivial correlation-coherence tradeoff as a resource for the high efficiency of such quantum devices.

A general design for a quantum battery based on an energy current observable quantifying the energy transfer rate to a consumption hub and an asymptotically stable discharge mechanism is proposed, which is achieved through an adiabatic evolution eventually yielding vanishing EC.



Enhancing the Charging Power of Quantum Batteries.

This work provides an upper bound to the achievable quantum advantage when the interaction order is restricted; i.e., at most k batteries are interacting, which constitutes a fundamental limit on the advantage offered by quantum technologies over their classical counterparts.

This work presents and solves a model of a QB that can be engineered in solid-state architectures and demonstrates the emergence of a quantum advantage in the charging power of Dicke QBs, which scales like sqrt[N] for N≫1.

Extractable Work, the Role of Correlations, and Asymptotic Freedom in Quantum Batteries.
