Edit: Page 73 of the book has a nice equation for the mass fluctuations, but nothing to support it other than a reference to the flux capacitor paper. Flux capacitors? Couldn't he have picked a better name that didn't scream gobbledygook? I am understanding why the "QVFers" have the funding. The PR job on Mach effects is just awful.
It makes no sense to dismiss Mach's ideas on inertia, or Newton, or Haisch&Rueda, or other "QVers." Dollars to donuts, they are all correct.
When the temperature of the tapered resonant cavity wall rises, the resonant frequency will be decreased and the quality factor changed separately.
I'm pretty sure the work in China has been going on since Shawyer lost his funding in the UK. Many people think the Shawyer thing is just a CIA counter-intel OP like the Baker HFGW stuff, only that the Chinese turned around and used back. I've no idea about this either way.
Just an FYIhttp://wulixb.iphy.ac.cn/EN/abstract/abstract60316.shtml
I just read the abstract. Just tried and failed on the pdf.
AbstractA microwave resonator system is made, which has a tapered resonant cavity, a microwave source, and a transmission device. Because of the electromagnetic pressure gradient on the tapered resonant cavity, a net electromagnetic force along the axis of the cavity may be observed, which is needed to verify experimentally the use of the independent microwave resonator system. It is also needed to keep the independent microwave resonator system in resonating state, which is the important procedure to demonstrate the possibility of net electromagnetic force. Thus, a low-signal resonating experiment on the tapered resonant cavity combined with resonating parts is completed to accurately find out the resonant frequency of 2.45 GHz and to analyze the influence of temperature on the resonant state. Experimental result shows that the resonant frequency and quality factor of the independent microwave resonator system are 2.44895 GHz and 117495.08 respectively. When the temperature of the tapered resonant cavity wall rises, the resonant frequency will be decreased and the quality factor changed separately.
