This email is being sent to Jason Keyes direct and to the KeelyNet
Jason, I was totally enthralled by your page and the 'thermovoltaics' or
'thermoPHOTOvoltaics'....have to put a link on my site to you guys as
you really have something new and totally novel.
I have a very rare paper that I plan to post shortly which indicates how
electrical energy can be gathered using properly designed crystals. I
didn't write it but a friend found it in a private library and we almost
have it ready to post. It indicates you can pull hundreds or more watts
directly from the ambient environment, using electronics...the paper won
a cash prize and no one apparently knows about it.....YET...<g>...
Anyway, I'll put a link on KeelyNet to your website as it is indeed very
One thing that might increase the efficiency....are the crystals grown
or deposited on the substrate?
There is a group who claims you can inject one or more frequencies which
sets up a kind of waveguide in the material that makes it much less
resistive and much more conductive.
This is part of what Keely was all about in the late 1800's. He claimed
you could 'graduate' mass (tune it) so that any imperfections (knots)
could be ironed out to eliminate resistance to flows of force or energy.
Kind of like programming the path of a wave in the mass.
Here is Keely's concept of 'graduation';
Inducing acoustic superconductivity in conductors;
How to make homemade solar cells from the KeelyNet discussion list;
Good luck and I'll certainly be watching!!
