Honor - Venture Capitalism

How do these words go together?

I devote one 2 hr class in my Entrepreneurship course to "Venture Capital Ethics"

Oh, and I teach that you need to ensure freedom to operate before you invest!

LOL This is pretty funny.

Recapping is competition for Nanocarbons not EEStor.

Rud - good luck. It seems PSU likes your ideas better.

Sorry supamark - you have missed the point.

Its in the sentence you quoted above. How to make it plainer.

"Energy is still conserved". Overunity from a total energy standpoint is a wrong word to use. I retracted the use of that word in post 40 above.

This is the first heat engine where the ambient temperature in the box is reduced as work is done. With all other heat engines known to date the temperature would increase to get work.

So you don't need to have a heat source to get this to run other than to initiate the process. After the process is initiated the temperature of the system decreases.

cechilders - the temperature dropped.

So its not overunity in the free energy sense. The cycle will halt when the temp hits 0K.

But it is overunity in a heat flow sense. Its not hot to cold extracting work. Its cold to hot extracting work.

So the first law of thermo holds. The other laws are inoperative.

I calculated the same value using a different method.

However, there are many unknowns in the experimental method used to produce the graph. We may be missing some key info.

supamark

so if the 70 picowatts were able to split water instead of making a photon .......

well you get the picture even if a picowatt is pretty small.

They got work out of no temperature differential.

Or if the 70 picowatts went to a ultra efficient solar cell of 50%

30 picowatts of electricity in producing 35 picowatts of electricity out

From MIT.

Laws of thermodynamics just broke. Like I have been saying they will break in chat for a few months now.

Energy is still conserved. But heat flowed up hill in a reverse heat engine. Work gets done and temperature decreases. And I guess entropy decreased - but that needs a bit more study on my part. I forget what happens to the entropy of a cooling material.

30 picowatts in 70 picowatts out - at MIT.

70 is bigger than 30

And the material got cooler.

More out than in!

I will leave out the gratuitous insult I thought up. It would be like beating a child.

Synopsis: Optical Device is More Than 100% Efficient

APS/Alan Stonebraker
Thermoelectrically Pumped Light-Emitting Diodes Operating above Unity Efficiency
Parthiban Santhanam, Dodd Joseph Gray, Jr., and Rajeev J. Ram
Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 097403 (2012)
Published February 27, 2012
Physicists have known for decades that, in principle, a semiconductor device can emit more light power than it consumes electrically. Experiments published in Physical Review Letters finally demonstrate this in practice, though at a small scale.

The energy absorbed by an electron as it traverses a light-emitting diode is equal to its charge times the applied voltage. But if the electron produces light, the emitted photon energy, which is determined by the semiconductor band gap, can be much larger. Usually, however, most electrons create no photon, so the average light power is less than the electrical power consumed. Researchers aiming to increase the power efficiency have generally tried to boost the number of photons per electron. But Parthiban Santhanam and co-workers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge took a gentler approach, achieving power enhancement even though less than one electron in a thousand produced a photon.

The researchers chose a light-emitting diode with a small band gap, and applied such small voltages that it acted like a normal resistor. With each halving of the voltage, they reduced the electrical power by a factor of 4, even though the number of electrons, and thus the light power emitted, dropped by only a factor of 2. Decreasing the input power to 30 picowatts, the team detected nearly 70 picowatts of emitted light. The extra energy comes from lattice vibrations, so the device should be cooled slightly, as occurs in thermoelectric coolers.

These initial results provide too little light for most applications. However, heating the light emitters increases their output power and efficiency, meaning they are like thermodynamic heat engines, except they come with the fast electrical control of modern semiconductor devices. – Don Monroe

I beg to differ. My research has shown that there are 5 kinds of Electronic Polarization of which only one kind is recognized in the literature.

So while I fully agree that ionic polarization will not produce an EESU, I disagree that it is the only polarization mechanism possible.

Now I might be right and I might be wrong since I have yet to complete the experiment to prove my point. Making the material that the theory requires may prove impossible. However, I will gladly challenge anyone to disprove the ED possibilities.

P.P.S

Home distilled ethanol tends to lead to difficulties with the revenue agents. Keep your still hidden.

P.S.

I have heard that adding a little kerosene to the mash gets rid of the rest of the water. But I would not drink that stuff.

Figure out how to get a phonon catalyzed cracker to work.

Heat to cracked water with over unity gain.

MIT just did it by producing photons with over unity gain proving the concept.

Making the mash is not something I have done before. I hear that it is easy. Put some sugar in a pot with water and wait. Might not taste all that good - but it will ferment.

Running a still I know how to do. Built my first one in 8th grade. But getting rid of all of the water is hard. 160 proof is about all I can do. You need someone with more skill than I have to get rid of all the water.

Course, 160 proof is stronger than what I usually drink!

Your analysis is generally correct. Unfortunately you have a missing piece of information that will substantially transform the results of your analysis. Well, it will move it from GBBL can't work to GBBL might work. Then you might add in EEStors and Recappings patent apps to indicate that it will work but we know that is insufficient proof for you.

In the context of the theoretical framework I have developed, GBBL will work. I just wish I could complete some lab work to prove it.
