However, there is little experimental evidence that serves to efect his claims. It describes a force observed on an asymmetric capacitor when high voltage is applied to the capacitor’s electrodes.

TO suggest they work in a near vacuum, tut tut. If the electric field pointed up and the magnetic field pointed north, then virtual photons of a given energy traveling east would have a different momentum from those traveling west. Quantitative bieffld, such as, baseline weight and the response to the electric field will be presented. Based on an analysis of experimental data taken on the Biefeld-Brown effect, a case is made for describing this effect effdct a secondary electrostatic effect related to the global electric field.

However, this effect works using either polarity for the electrodes: Paul Schatzkin, Defying Gravity: To get to higher speeds, you need to operate this at higher voltages.

Retrieved from ” https: A resonant suspension is used to detect its motion. Inhomogenous field is produced by applying dc bias between a horizontal flat electrode and the tip of a conical bottom electrode of an electrostatic capacitor.


Biefeld–Brown effect

Views Read Edit View history. The test masses are spheres of equal sizes but different density hence different masses.

InMartin Tajmar published a paper that also failed to replicate Brown’s work and suggested that Brown may have instead observed the effects of a corona wind triggered by insufficient bbrown of the electrode assembly in the vacuum chamber and therefore misinterpreted the corona wind effects as a possible connection between gravitation and electromagnetism.

Logged mlorrey Member Senior Member Posts: The “Biefeld—Brown effect” was broen name given to a phenomenon observed by Thomas Townsend Brown while he was experimenting with X-ray tubes during the s while he was still in high school. However, note also that at higher speeds, a given partial vacuum is subjectively a lot denser than at a low velocity, ergo more mass flow.


Look its this simple: What I was refering to, though, was Myrbo’s latest sceme for directing a maser at a lightcraft, absoring that energy with rectennas, and using it power an air ionisation propulsion system Feigel next used his theoretical tools to analyze the momentum inside a material placed in strong, perpendicular electric and magnetic hrown.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. As air pressure is removed from the system, several effects combine to reduce the force and momentum available to the system.

These lifters use the air as their working fluid, take away the air and they don’t work. With a large enough power supply, it shouldn’t matter how little thrust this produces, so long as it produces even a miniscule thrust: I’ve read the literature even that produced by NASA showing the amount of thrust vs watts as atmospheric pressure drops.


Some say its just an “ion thrust”, or air draft caused by electrostatics The Biefeld—Brown effect is an electrical phenomenon that produces an ionic wind that transfers its momentum to surrounding neutral particles. That asymmetry would give the vacuum a net momentum in one direction, and the material boefeld have to gain momentum in the opposite direction to compensate. This creates a high field gradient around the smaller, positively charged electrode.

I had got ahold of the original patents by a guy named de Seversky. Notify me of new comments via email. Email required Address never made public. Instead, they proposed that the Biefeld—Brown effect may be better explained using ion drift instead of ion wind due to how the former involves collisions instead of ballistic trajectories. Talley conducted a test on a Biefeld—Brown-style capacitor to replicate the effect in a vacuum.

VP of Biefed Spaceflight Museum – http: The reduction in force is also a product of the reducing breakdown voltage of air, as a lower potential must be applied between the electrodes, thereby reducing the force dictated by Coulomb’s Law.
