Cold Fusion is an inappropriate term, as accurately described by Steven Krivet in a recent article ” Cold Fusion is Neither” cold or fusion. He provides the background history and ongoing research before throwing his support solely behind the Widom Larsen theory (2006). I also believe the Widom Larsen theory has strong merit but not to the exclusion of other theories … Read more
Casimir effect explains why 2 conductive but uncharged paralell plates are attracted together and it explains stictions forces that causes nano geometry devices to clump together frustrating research efforts to design mechanical devices at this scale. The present theory of Casimir effect is based on longer wavelength vacuum fluctuations which are physically too long to exist between the closely spaced Casimir plates. It is … Read more
An unusually exotic theory of sonoluminescence, which received much popular attention, is the Casimir energy theory suggested by noted physicist Julian Schwinger which focuses on long distance quantum radiative phenomenon associated not with atoms, but with fast-moving surfaces in the collapsing bubble.
