Direct Conversion of Coherent Quantum Fluctuations into Electric Energy
Concerning its basic construction, the Crystal Cell is related to a battery. Crystal Cells contain a solid polycrystalline silicate instead of a typical electrolyte. This technology exhibits an entirely novel mode of generating electric energy. Here the statement "entirely novel mode" has to be taken literally.
The emission free Crystal Cell can generate a direct electric current over an unknown period of time (since 1999). Within the Crystal Cell processes play a role, which are similar to a hydropower plant. Just like a hydropower plant draws its energy from the flow of water the Crystal Cell draws its energy from an external source of energy. Our hypothesis is that the Crystal Cell extracts energy from the quantum vacuum. Current research status suggests, that the function of the Crystal Cell is related to a solar cell. Instead of sunlight coherent quantum fluctuations are used to create a charge separation. The power output is today at (11mW/kg/25°C).
The current phase of development aims at the increase of the power-weight ratio. After it is intended to introduce them into the market.
