Q: What would happen if you give 12V battery and two 6V light bulbs to Weir/Nelson?

A: They will wait 8 years for 12V➜6V DC-DC converter.

Dave,

You clearly see the world in black and white - for you investigating frequency response clearly means Pettey cannot be doing any work relevant to DC!!

For some years ee-tom has been pointing out that if DW's EESU works then DW can make a lot of money by selling the product into the standard capacitor marketplace, some of which requires that the capacitors perform well at high frequency. So there is at least one commercial reason to do this stuff.

The other reason that AC measurements are good is that it enables you do something called impedance spectroscopy. This lets you work out some of what is going on inside a capacitor just by measuring its frequency response. It tells you things you would like to know even if you are only using it in DC mode.

Regards,
Peter

What TP says is true of course. And it is even reflected in Pettey’s CV

Created testing protocols for the frequency dependent electrical properties of thin films.


Initiated impedance spectroscopy measurements of the dielectric properties of doped ceramic powders.

But I found this interesting because it makes clear that the ‘frequency dependent’ properties did not just relate to the CMBT. As TP states, such measurements would also be useful if made on the entire capacitor. But why be redundant in your CV about this (unless it is not redundant)?

From Impedence Spectroscopy

Impedance. The ratio of a sinusoidal voltage, applied across two terminals of a measurement cell, to the sinusoidal component of the current flowing between the terminals that results from the applied potential difference. Unless the system is purely resistive, impedance is a complex quantity because the current will have a different phase from the applied voltage: Z = Z' + iZ"

Also see Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy Primer.

I agree that there is no simple black and white to this.

Hi Pete, In medicine when we hear hoof beats we don't always think of zebras, our world is quite nuanced; as is the story around EEStor. I realize that there are possible explanations for AC testing of capacitors, but the interresting thing about this item from LPs' resume is that he mentioned it specificallly and that he referred to thin films specifically

Although you can create an explanation for this around the idea that he is testing a capacitor, there other possible explanations for this that I find much more interresting.

In particular, this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resonant-tunneling...

"Resonant-tunneling diode (RTD) is a diode with a resonant-tunneling structure in which electrons can tunnel through some resonant states at certain energy levels. The current–voltage characteristic often exhibits negative differential resistance regions.
All types of tunneling diodes make use of the quantum mechanical tunneling. Characteristic to the current–voltage relationship of a tunneling diode is the presence of one or more negative differential resistance regions, which enables many unique applications. Tunneling diodes can be very compact and are also capable of ultra-high-speed operation because the quantum tunneling effect through the very thin layers is a very fast process."

It seems clean to me that Lucas is using linkedin for networking purposes. If he were looking for a job I doubt he would be using linkedin in order to attract employers. His level of experience is at such a high level and his expertise is such a niche that he would not need a job board to find work.

On the other hand if DW is trying to keep things hush hush this is certainly not the way to go about it.

i was out last night with a few friends doing some catching up. My close friends are a pretty diverse group and we include a couple of lawyers, a communications/software guy, a doctor , a truck driver, a retail camera store owner. i posed the question about why update your linkedin profile.
The answer was for a professional its better than facebook to let all those from highschool, childhood friends etc know of your accomplishments. Kind of like "see what i did!" and he wants everyone to know his role in this game changing tech.
i don't know if this has any bearing but it was something i had not thought of.

What a ridiculous thing to say.
The guy spent time to update his CV. And working for an old idiot who runs small family based scam is not exactly thing which people with high level experience do.

It will be interesting to see if he changes his profile of Monday after DW gets wind of it. If AHBL is far off than DW might tell him to take it down.

So these Zenn people must have finished their parts too.

He is R&D manager to take the prototype to pilot line. If the pilot line works then yes he is done. He may be indefinitely retained as an consultant and friend.
When Zenn gets the EESU and tests it then they may start the process of waking up.

Buck good point. He is tooting his horn and he probably has some chick he is trying to impress. We should send eenigma over to him so he can school him on how to make chicks dig him for who he is.

I think 'If' would have been a better first word for this sentence.

One has to ask, too, whether a company that is content to sit around for years and years doing absolutely nothing whatever to earn money for their shareholders has sufficient 'get up and go' to be able to exploit this development, should it finally actually happen. It looks pretty well moribund to me.

Technically it would not be difficult to force someone's LinkedIn entry, but it rather depends on whether you are willing to spend time in jail for fraud after the event. You have to attach at least one email address to it, but can't remember any other security requirements.

In this particular case it would be picked up pretty quickly as Tom Weir would probably be interested enough to have a read and would be likely to discuss it with Pettey.

It's highly unlikely Pettey's CV on LinkedIn is forged - too much of a professional job.

Peter

Thanks for giving me an answer. Is there anyway of telling how long his info has been posted on LinkedIn or when the Zenn info was last added or updated?

If that's the case, then we should soon start getting multiple comprehensive results when we search for EESTOR on Linked In. Wouldn't that be nice! That can happen, but the most likely reason for anybody updating their linkedin profile is that they are looking for a new job.
