  • Publication number: 20190348563
    Abstract: An extreme and deep ultra-violet photovoltaic device designed to efficiently convert extreme ultra-violet (EUV) and deep ultra violet (DUV) photons originating from an EUV/DUV power source to electrical power via the absorption of photons creating electrons and holes that are subsequently separated via an electric field so as to create a voltage that can drive power in an external circuit. Unlike traditional solar cells, the absorption of the extreme/deep ultra-violet light near the surface of the device requires special structures constructed from large and ultra-large bandgap semiconductors so as to maximize converted power, eliminate absorption losses and provide the needed mechanical integrity.

  • Publication number: 20190170127
    Abstract: A method and means to produce a force for propulsion comprises a source of free electrons and a means to produce pseudoelectrons; whereas, a gravitating body such as the Earth provides a repulsive fifth force on the pseudoelectrons. Pseudoelectrons are produced by absorption of high-energy photons by free electrons or by angular momentum exchange between polarized relativistic free electrons and a collision partner such as H3+. The free electrons to undergo transitions to pseudoelectron states may be first formed in the ground spin state. The pseudoelectrons experience a fifth force (F2) away from the Earth and move upward (away from the Earth).

    Abstract: A method and means to produce a propulsion force comprises a source of electrons and means to produce pseudoelectrons. A gravitating body such as the Earth provides a repulsive fifth force on the pseudoelectrons. Pseudoelectrons are produced by absorption of high-energy photons by electrons. The pseudoelectrons experience a fifth force (F2) away from the Earth and move upward away from the Earth. To use this F2 device for propulsion, the repulsive fifth force on the pseudoelectrons is transferred to a negatively charged plate. The Coulombic repulsion between the pseudoelectrons and the negatively charged plate causes the plate to lift. The craft may additionally be imparted with angular momentum along an axis defined by the gravitational force, and the craft may be tilted to move the vector away from the axis where a component of acceleration tangential to a surface of a gravitating body is achieved via conservation of angular momentum.
