CQC Partnering with German Aerospace Centre (DLR) to Create Simulation Models for Battery Development

By IQT News posted 30 Apr 2021

(ElectronicsWeekly) Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC) has partnered with the German Aerospace Centre (Deutsches Zentrum für Luftund Raumfahrt; DLR) to explore how quantum computing could help create better simulation models for battery development to aid future energy utilisation.
The collaboration will see DLR – the national aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany – use CQC’s quantum algorithms for solving partial differential equation (PDE) systems to render a 1D simulation of a lithium-ion battery cell.
This lays the groundwork for exploring multi-scale simulations of complete battery cells with quantum computers, which are considered a viable alternative for rendering full 3D models. A multi-scale approach incorporates information from different system levels (e.g. atomistic, molecular, and macroscopic) to make a simulation more manageable and realistic, potentially accelerating battery research and development for a variety of sustainable energy solutions.
DLR has previously used classical computer modelling to research a range of different battery types, including lithium ion and beyond-lithium technologies.
