Conversion of the zero-point energy of the vacuum


Although I verified the practical utilization of free energy in the laboratory, I had to stop my research work completely. This is not very nice, because "Free and Clean Energy" would be important for mankind.

For all who want to see my former results: Please scroll down.



















This page also exists in German Language. The link is here.

The zero-point oscillations of Quantum Electrodynamics do contain a huge amount of energy, which is known on the one hand from Cosmological measurements and on the other hand from measurements on the well known Casimir-effect.

The question is now, whether mankind can get benefit of this energy, which would be of serious practical importance, because this energy is understood without any connection to visible matter. Thus a conversion of this energy into a usable form of energy will be free from any pollution of our environment by principle.

The following links introduce into a theoretical understanding of this energy and furthermore they demonstrate a successful conversion of this energy into classical mechanical energy, as it was already performed in the Laboratory. Up to now, some knowledge of the fundamental principles of Physics is developed, but the technical maturity of this energy conversion is in far future, because in the experiment done up to now, only 150 NanoWatts of machine power had been gained.

¤  Two Paradoxes of the Existence of electric Charge

Electromagnetic waves propagate with the speed of light. The reason is that electro­static fields as well as magnetic fields propagate with this speed. Both types of objects, waves as well as static fields contain and transport energy. Consequently it is possible to calculate how much energy and how much energy density a source of a field emits into the space – and the calculation shows that this energy is not zero, for elementary particles as well as for macros­copic spheres. The calculation is presented in this article. This leads to a principle problem not being answered up to now: From where does the static charge obtain the energy, which it emits permanently ?  But the paradox has a second aspect: If we follow the trace of a specified element of volume containing an electric field on its way through the space, we will notice that its contents of field energy decreases during time. But where does this effluent energy go ?   Full Text: Article in English (PDF)   (see also http://arxiv.org/abs/0710.3253)

¤  A Motor driven by Electrostatic Forces

A new type of motor is presented, at which the electrostatic field produced by an electric charge brings a rotor into rotation. The physical principle of the motor is explained on the basis of Coulomb-forces with additional aid of the image-charge method. Furthermore a possible proposal for an experimental setup for the purpose of practical verification is pre­sented. The assembly described contains a rotor of 20 centimeters in diameter, taking up a torque in the order of magnitude of about 0.1µNm. The setup is not yet technically optimized for later applications, but it is designed in a way to be easy understandable. The origin of the energy driving the rotor can be lead back to the energy of the vacuum. - Full Text: Article in English (PDF)        (see also PHILICA.COM, ISSN 1751-3030, Article number 119, 18.Feb.2008)
Additional numeric considerations about the optimization of an setup for an electrostatic motor can be found here.

¤  A QED-model for the energy of the vacuum and an explantion of its conversion into mechanical energy

The energy density of the vacuum is still one of the unsolved questions in physics. Principally it should be possible to calculate this energy density by summing up the energy of all zero point oscillations of the vacuum. The problem is that this sum leads to a divergent improper integral. An approach to a solution is found within the theory of Geometrodynamics, however this approach is regarded sceptical nowadays and it is in contradiction with measurements of Astrophysics. The present work introduces a new solution for the convergence problem of the improper integral on the basis of Quantum electrodynamics (where improper integrals are solved), coming to values appearing realistic. The only necessary postulate: It is known that the speed of propagation of electromagnetic waves is influenced by electric and magnetic DC-fields. The postulate is now to assume, that the zero point oscillations of the vacuum display the same behaviour. But the article is not restricted to theoretical calculations of the energy of the zero point oscillations of the vacuum; it also goes back to the experimental verification and to the utilization of those zero point oscillations in laboratory giving a theoretical (quantumelectrodynamical) explanation of the operation of the experiment, which already has been conducted successfully. Full Text: Article in English (PDF)  (see also PHILICA.COM, ISSN 1751-3030, Article number 138,  4.

¤  Conversion of Vacuum-energy into mechanical energy: Successful experimental Verification

Theoretical considerations regarding the conversion of vacuum-energy into mechanical energy have been presented in "A Motor driven by Electrostatic Forces". The principle of conversion is based on electrostatics. The experimental verification of this theoretical work is described here. For this purpose a metallic rotor is supported by a very special type of hydrostatic bearing. The electric field source driving the rotor is a circular disc, positioned above the rotor. Once this field source is electrically charged, the rotor will rotate, as long as the field source keeps its charge, taking the energy for the rotation from the vacuum. The experiment described here confirms that the rotation really takes place.  Full Text: Article in English (PDF)  (see also PHILICA.COM, ISSN 1751-3030, Article number 124,  2. April 2008)

Foregoing remarks: The electrostatic rotor was also realized with a mechanical (dry) bearing: see article, and at PHILICA.COM, ISSN 1751-3030, observation 45, 11. April 2008

Desirable would be a technical usage of the electrostatic rotor: How to continue with this machine ?


¤  Two Paradoxes of the Existence of magnetic fields

A thought experiment is considered in which somebody observes an electrical charge, moving with cons­tant speed relatively to a given frame of reference, in which the observer is in rest. Let us further assume that no electric fields and no magnetic fields interact with this moving charge, so that there is no force acting on the charge. Consequently it keeps constant speed. But the moving charge itself produces a magnetic field within the reference frame. Because the moving charge does not alter its speed and thereby its energy, it can not emanate any power. But the generated magnetic field contains energy, and we can calculate the power being emanated from the moving charge, which we find to be not constant as a function of time. The existence of this energy and the alteration of the power is a first paradoxon of the magnetic field. If we follow the trace of a specified element of volume containing field energy, a further calculation proves, that this contents of energy decreases during time. This unexplained loss of energy as a consequence of the mere propagation in space is a second paradoxon of the magnetic field. - Full Text: Article in English (PDF)        (see also PHILICA.COM, ISSN 1751-3030, Article number 113, 19.Dez.2007)

¤  A magnetic rotor to convert vacuum-energy into mechanical energy

In previous work it was demonstrated, how vacuum-energy can be made manifest in the laboratory and how it can be practically converted into mechanical energy with the use of electrosta­tic forces driving a rotor using the energy of an electrostatic field.
In analogy to this electrostatic principle, the energy of a magnetic field allows an alternative method to convert vacuum-energy into mechanical energy. A design of an experiment to realize this conversion is conceived here. The calculation of the forces and torques of an exemplary rotor leads to the expectation that a magnetically driven rotor can be built of the movement should be observable.

Review Article:  Conversion of vacuum-energy into mechanical energy

This is an overview of my work on the vacuum-energy-rotor, which additionally contains considerations about the further development to technical maturity. In order to avoid isolation losses (of electrical charge), the field source was made of electret. Thereby the rotation ended after few revolutions (one or two or maximum less than three turns, with the number of revolutions not beeing reproducible because of the inhomogeneity of the charge distribution on the surface of the electret). But from this observation it can be concluded, that the vacuum-energy-rotor is not driven by the Biefeld-Brown-Effekt or by some electrohydrodynamic effects.

¤  Conversion of Vacuum-Energy into Mechanical Energy under Vacuum Conditions

In order to make vacuum-energy perceptible in the laboratory the author developed a theoretical approach, which he experimentally verified with a special electrostatic rotor that converts vacuum-energy into classical mechanical energy causing a rotation of the rotor. Because all former experiments had been executed under air at room pressure, there was the request on various occasions to implement the experiment into the vacuum in order to prove, that the movement of the rotor was not caused by an artefact due to the recoil of ionized gas molecules. For this purpose the setup was now realized at the absence of air, this means within a vacuum at a pressure sufficient to exclude gas discharge. The experiments have been performed at the University of Magdeburg. It is now successfully proven that the experimental verification of conversion of vacuum-energy into mechanical energy is not an artefact caused by ionized gas molecules.
