The Mead Nachamkin Zero Point Energy Converter

It is well known that the vacuum interacts with electrical charges and dipoles, and also with the electrons in an atom. For example, Lamb received the 1955 Nobel Prize in physics jointly with Polykarp Kush for experiments measuring the small displacement later called the "Lamb shift" of 0+ne of the energy levels in atomic hydrogen {349}.

Casimir {350a} proved that closely separated conducting plates also alter the energy density of the vacuum, thereby becoming an "energy extracting" method, although the energy is miniscule. It is quite real, however, as shown in meticulous experimental work by Lamoreaux {351}. The principle that vacuum energy interacts with matter, plates, and electrical double layers and circuits is well proven experimentally.

In 1996 Mead and Nachamkin were granted a patent on an overunity EM power system process for extracting zero-point energy of the vacuum {352}. If one closely examines the patent wording, the device is properly patented as an energy converter and does not overtly state that it is a COP>1.0 system. It is a COP>1.0 system, however, since the input energy is freely received from the vacuum and not input by the operator himself. One embodiment of the invention inserts a tiny coil between the plates to extract the energy. See Figure 6-1. The energy is based on the Casimir effect {26}, which was accurately measured in 1997 by Lamoreaux {27} and since then by others.157 Further investigation of the force's behavior with the shape of the conducting plates has been performed by Chen et

157 See also U. Mohideen and A. Roy, "Precision measurement of the Casimir force from 0.1 to 0.9 microns," Phys. Rev. Lett., Vol. 81, January 1998, p. 4549.

al.158 Numerous other papers of interest on the Casimir effect have also been published {353a-d}.

Because energy cannot be created or destroyed, any COP>1.0 system is an energy converter, a priori. It must receive the excess energy from the environment (in this case, from the curvature of spacetime and from the local active vacuum) and convert that energy to a form usable to power or assist in powering the system loads and losses.

The Mead-Nachamkin patent is interesting because the physics of the device is proven and accepted. Getting sufficient power output to be useful for electrical power purposes, however, remains to be demonstrated, since the Casimir effect is very tiny.
