To: (Correspondent),

Here is an update on the rigorous Klimov work, proving conclusively that one can find a process that will extract and use excess free energy from the vacuum (EFTV). The work has also been independently replicated, and they are moving to the amplification of lasers with this type of prototype EFTV technology.

Notice the clear statement that the initially excited electron (after being hit by the incident solar radiation photon) first dives momentarily into the seething virtual state vacuum, popping back up with a great deal of additional energy (having been taken on from its submergence in the virtual state vacuum flux). The superexcited electron then abruptly decays into up to seven normally-excited electrons.

So here we have the very clear and rigorous scientific proof that one can indeed extract free and usable EM energy from the vacuum, accomplished in a great national laboratory. It has also been replicated independently in a second great laboratory. It is now proceeding forward for potential use in amplifying laser emission, using the excess energy acquired and used from the seething virtual state vacuum.

 Note that it only takes one single white crow to prove that not all crows are black.

This Klimov work is the rigorous "white crow" that proves you really can extract and use free extra EM energy from the seething vacuum. And it's been done in the hard science community, by two great labs, and now replicated by other researchers in other labs as well.

And note the stated COP theoretically achievable being 700% for this first process. The researchers have already easily achieved COP = 200% (they express COP as percent rather than decimal number 7.0 and 2.0).

Now contrast this to the sad archaic old EE model used by all our electrical engineers to do their "power" systems. That old 1880s/1890s model assumes there is  no active vacuum at all, and hence one cannot take excess energy from the vacuum because it's "just emptiness" in that model's silly century-old assumptions. It was also deliberately symmetrized in 1892, to exclude all such "asymmetrical" systems and retain only those EM systems that self-enforce COP<1.0 (for the electrical part of the system).

Notice particularly that the Klimov excess energy effect is "asymmetric". After the "user's" arranged input from the active physical environment (the original solar radiation photon that strikes the first electron), that struck electron then freely takes on additional energy -- directly from the seething vacuum -- on its own. This "super-excited" electron then decays into up to seven "normally excited" electrons. And that is an "asymmetrical" operation, a priori.

Hence the system can and does legitimately exhibit COP >1.0.

Scientifically, with its independent replications, the Klimov and related work and experiments are all the proof that is required by the scientific method, to rigorously prove that energy-from-the-vacuum is a viable concept capable of being realized and used in real, operational systems.  

Very best wishes,

Absolute Proof that Operational COP>1.0 EM Systems Are Possible and Eventually Practical


Brody, Herb. Victor Klimov in Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico has constructed a solar cell which can absorb the light of a specific wave length in such a way, that one photon can energize more than one electron. As soon as the electron absorbs a photon, it disappears for a very short moment into the quantum field. Being in the virtual state the electron can borrow energy from the vacuum and thereafter appears again in our reality. Now the electron can energize up to 7 other electrons. This leads to a theoretical coefficient of performance (COP) of 700%. A COP = 200% can be readily achieved and it has been. The experiment has also been replicated successfully by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden Colorado. [Herb Brody, "Solar Power - Seriously Souped Up." New Scientist, May 27, 2006, p 45].

     Comment by T.E.B.: Note that the super-excited electron, after emerging from the seething virtual state vacuum immersion, actually splits into two or more electrons! So the output current of the solar cell process is freely amplified by excess energy from the local virtual state vacuum. Note that at about COP = 3.0, one could conceivably add clamped positive feedback of one of those output electrons back to the "dive back into the seething virtual state vacuum" input, replacing the original electron input, and the unit would be "self-powering" (powered by energy from the vacuum) while putting out the other two electrons as output.
     Or by using some of the output current in a radiation-producing process, one could have the positive feedback input as a radiation photon, to replace the initial solar input entirely. In this fashion, once "jump started" by some source of solar radiation, the resulting "solar panel" system would become totally self-powering, taking all its input and output energy directly from the seething vacuum itself

A photovoltaic device having multi-junction nanostructures deposited as a multi-layered thin film on a substrate. Preferably, the device is grown as InxGa1-xN multi-layered junctions with the gradient x, where x is any value in the range from zero to one. The nanostructures are preferably 5-500 nanometers and more preferably 10-20 nanometers in diameter. The values of x are selected so that the bandgap of each layer is varied from 0.7 eV to 3.4 eV to match as nearly as possible the solar energy spectrum of 0.4 eV-4 eV.

     Quoting Klimov, Victor"     "Carrier multiplication actually relies upon very strong interactions between electrons squeezed within the tiny volume of a nanoscale semiconductor particle. That is why it is the particle size, not its composition that mostly determines the efficiency of the effect. In nanosize crystals, strong electron-electron interactions make a high-energy electron unstable. This electron only exists in its so-called 'virtual state' for an instant before rapidly transforming into a more stable state comprising two or more electrons."
