Galactic ET-Net

Advanced civilizations will not be using the same technology that we use and just as ants might find it difficult to understand the internet, we struggle when trying to define advanced technology. Modulated waves of electromagnetic energy are not the only way to communicate. In the Standard Model of physics, the force carriers are divided […]

1905 – photoelectric effect

Maxwell‘s equations showed that light, electricity and magnetism all had similar wave characteristics and suggested that light was a variation of the electro-magnetic wave form. If this was true, light and other electro-magnetic waves impacting metal would cause a flow of electric current in the metal. At the time, scientists were using electrified glass tubes […]

Plasmonics

In electronics, electrical signals are pushed along wires, or small conductive traces that act like wires. The speed of these signals depend upon the ability of the conductor material to relay electromagnetic waves. While this speed is quite fast, it is often slow compared to the speed of light. For example: in a vacuum an […]

1850 – Heaviside – bio

Oliver Heaviside was born in London in 1850 and was a mathematician and electrical engineer. He started out as a telegraph operator then began publishing research papers on telegraphy and made contributions to the electromagnetic principles involved in telegraph line transmission. He adapted Maxwell’s equations to create a pair of linear differential equations that describe […]
