A wireless device has become an essential part of our life from going to the office, driving in a car, or even relaxing in your bedroom. Advantages of a Wireless device –
- Handy and easy to use
- Less space occupancy
- Can be used anywhere within the range
A wireless charger is present in the market right now but, it can only charge up a single device at a time. Powering up multiple devices together through a wireless charger is only imagined in sci-fiction movies. The imagination of a wireless charger with rays or energy flowing all over the room is going to be true soon.
The latest invention of a new “anti-laser” can make it possible for us. The study of this anti-laser has been published over Nature communications that can generate a line of light with power having a 99.996% efficiency to devices no matter how many people are present in the room.
Previously implementing this kind of technology was difficult because it created a problem over the status of the room. Real-life situations forms a much more complex situation than the lab where the walls reflect the energy easily. Objects present in the real-life environment create a problematic situation for the energy to move around and they generally get in the way.
Researchers implemented the idea of “coherent perfect absorption” (CPA). In this idea, one machine process power all over the room, and the rest absorbs it up. In this process, the anti-laser does the sucking part.
Researchers mentioned in the study that “Coherent perfect absorption (CPA) has been appealing to physicists and engineers for both its fundamental and technological relevance. On the technological level, its implementation promises the realization of a family of wave-based devices performing highly-selective and tunable absorption in a manner that goes beyond the traditional concept of impedance matching.”
CPA is correlated with the time-reversal (TR) symmetry. Time reversal symmetry forms the situation where time can move backward as forward easily although it initially depends on the anti laser to function properly. Recreating it is difficult due to the circumstances. In this latest work, the researchers have used magnetic fields to push the photons so hard that the TR was lost. The method of sending the power was amazing and it does not process backward but the appliance still receives the power.
Researchers said in their paper, “This proves that the concept of CPA goes far beyond its initial conception as a ‘time-reversed laser.”
Someday, the latest anti-laser innovation will be applied to the real world environment too. We hope to see this technology soon.
