Quantum computers could make specialized batteries for Volkswagen EVs

VW to use quantum computers in electric-car battery development Enlarge Photo Quantum computers could analyze and help build highly specialized electric vehicle batteries in the future, Volkswagen announced this week. Using the highly complex computing tech, researchers simulated industrially relevant molecules in EV batteries that could help shape the next generation of compounds for use in green cars. Researchers said that quantum algorithms may help create batteries that prioritize weight savings, power density, or cell arrangement, depending on need. Future EVs could rely on different battery chemistries tailored to their specific use, VW said. Additionally, quantum chemistry could create a "chemical blueprint" for battery production that would speed up development time and minimize environmental impact. Volkswagen will present the findings from their initial research ...
