Toyota and Denso Pursue In-Road Wireless Charging by Electreon

Electreon, a specialist in embedded-roadway wireless inductive charging of electric vehicles, along with Toyota Motors and automotive component supplier Denso have agreed to jointly develop an advanced wireless charging system for the mainstream EV market. The Electreon technology is also the focus of several demonstration projects taking place on roadways in Europe and the USA. […]


Superconducting Magnets Built by Tokamak Energy for Fusion Power

Creating clean, sustainable fusion energy requires strong magnetic fields to confine and control the extremely hot, positively-charged hydrogen fuel, which becomes a plasma several times hotter than the sun. Now, Tokamak Energy in the UK has built a world-first set of new generation high temperature superconducting (HTS) magnets to be assembled and tested in fusion power plant scenarios. The magnets use HTS tape from Furukawa Electric and SuperPower, a New York-based affiliate in the Furukawa Electric Group. […]


Optically Pumped Magnetometers from QuSpin Guide Drones & Brain Imaging 

Optically pumped magnetometers have an edge over even some superconducting devices for precision magnetic field detection since they don’t need cryogenic cooling. QuSpin, a company focused on developing atomic devices, has come out with its second-generation sensor for integration into compact aerial and underwater drones. Meanwhile, Cerca Magnetics, a medtech startup is applying QuSpin’s OPM technology to open new capabilities in neurologic imaging. […]
