Biefeld-Brown effect is not understood. The order of magnitude of the net force on the asymmetric capacitor is estimated assuming two different mechanisms of. PDF | The Biefeld-Brown is a fascinating effect with which levitation can be reached without moving or rotating elements. Static voltage is. Biefeld-Brown effect Lifter. «on: 03/15/ AM». Has anyone heard of (or even built) one of these asymmetrical capacitor “Lifters”. I just saw a story on it.

Townsend Brown, – Tanglewood Books, Chapter The vacuum of empty space is a restless place. He called it an “ionocraft”.
With the electric field on, off and reversed the weight of the masses is measured by an analytical balance. InBrown filed a patent that claimed that a net force on the btown capacitor can exist even in a vacuum.
Biefeld-Brown effect Lifter
Several researchers claim that conventional physics cannot adequately explain the phenomenon. Below the glow discharge region, the breakdown voltage increases again, whilst the number of potential ions decreases, and the chance of impact lowers.
Any application in the future for a craft would need a lot of electric power It seemed to me that it generated more lift than could be generated by the ionic wind it developed, but it may have been electrostatically repelled from the carpeting as well. At the same time, the number of impacts between ionized and neutral particles is reduced.
Archived from the original on 27 August A resonant suspension is used to detect its motion. Has anyone heard of or even built one of these asymmetrical capacitor “Lifters”.
Brown filed another patent in that detailed the physics of the Biefeld—Brown effect, making the following claims: In a series of papers co-authored with fellow university physicist Douglas G.

Retrieved from ” https: Additionally, I wonder how it compares to closed case ion drives, lets say if you injected some propellant into the electrostatic field I’ve read the literature even that produced by NASA showing the amount of thrust vs watts as atmospheric pressure drops. The observed changes in angular brownn agree with the classical theory. However, there is little experimental evidence that serves to validate his claims.
This page was last edited on 13 Decemberat Both do exert pressure but the radiation part is orders of magnitude more powerful. However, note also that at higher speeds, a given partial vacuum is subjectively a lot denser than at a low velocity, ergo more egfect flow.
Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: Historically, numerous patents have been granted for various applications of the effect, from electrostatic dust precipitation, to air ionizersand also for flight. Such a scaling of the signal with mass may be indicative of a gravitational signature.
It describes a force observed on an asymmetric capacitor when high voltage is applied to the capacitor’s electrodes. Views Read Edit View history. Thrust gets extremely small at LEO atmospheric densities, even at the relatively low voltages NASA tested 10kk voltswhich is considered low.
I concede that the thinner the vacuum, the lower the thrust, that is a given, but nor is this dependent on any crazy physics either: Simon If you’re talking about the lightcraft, there has actually been some testflight, I think it went to ft or so, problem is, it’s gotta be very light and need a powerful laser as for the lifters, yep it ionises air around and use it to move, and in this case too needs to be very light.
Other ionic US patents of interest: Retrieved 27 August To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: Now Alexander Feigel of Rockefeller University in New York has predicted an analogous but rather surprising effect that a dielectric body placed in crossed electric and magnetic fields will extract linear momentum from the vacuum and start to move: To get to higher speeds, you need to operate this at higher voltages.
I’m pretty sure this is just ionising air stripping off some of the electrons from the N2, for exampleand driving them through the electrical field between the strips of Aluminum foil; your TV does a similar thing when it take a cathode-ray a beam of electrons and uses electrical and magnetic fields to bend the beam in such a way to draw pictures on your screen A theoretical derivation of this force has been proposed see the external links below.
Today, the Internet is filled with sites devoted to this interpretation of the effect.
A particularly notable patent — U. Given internal ion engines need a near vacuum to work in as well, the only difference is that a lifter could theoretically use the proton flow of the solar wind if its electrostatic field could be strong and large enough much like the magnetoplasma sail depends on solar wind as well.
However, this effect works using either polarity for the electrodes: Propulsion Physical phenomena Anti-gravity. If absorbed, the pressure is the energy flux density divided by the speed of light. But at one g in a near vacuum there won’t be he mass flow for one of these to fly, that’s what I was complaning biefeldd AS for the magnetoplasma sail I think it’s a great idea but is there a superconductor with a high enough H c avaiable?
Though the applied voltage and current will propagate at nearly the speed of light, the movement of the conductors themselves is almost negligible. 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
