Abstract:

Experiments to measure conditions under which one just observes the onset of Oscillistor action are in progress. The qualitive dependence upon the applied electric and magnetic fields, specimen size, and bulk electrical properties is now known. The surface properties remain to be investigated. Design criteria for making Oscillistors which will require a minimum of electrical input power were found. Experiments with such low power Oscillistors suggest that it is possible to operate an Oscillistor continuously at room temperature if a suitable nonreactive solid ambient is provided for not only carrying away the heat dissipated by the Oscillistor, but also for protecting and stabilizing the semiconductor surface from external influences. Experiments are also in progress to detect the magnetic field produced by the proposed helical currents of M. Glicksmans Oscillistor theory. If successful, it is anticipated that the converse interaction would be operative and that one could construct an Oscillistor amplifier in this way. Author
