Decidedly nothing closely connected with LENR, a new patent describing an apparatus for creating LSW (longitudinal scalar waves) and their potential uses has been filed. Included here is a suggestion that they propogate at 64X light speed and can produce anti-gravity and 'tractor beam' effects. A look at the citations included will show some of the history behind this much derided phenomenon, going all the way back to big daddy Nikola Tesla.
Scalar-longitudinal waves (SLWs) may be transmitted and/or received. A first apparatus configured to transmit and/or receive SLWs may include a linear first conductor configured to operate as a linear monopole antenna at a first operating frequency. The first apparatus may include a tubular second conductor coaxially aligned with the first conductor and an annular balun configured to cancel most or all return current on an outer surface of the second conductor during operation such that the first conductor transmits or receives SLWs. A second apparatus configured to transmit and/or receive scalar-longitudinal waves may include a bifilar coil formed in an alternating fashion of a first conductor and a second conductor such that an electrical current in the coil will propagate in opposite directions in adjacent turns of the coil thereby cancelling any magnetic field so that during operation the coil transmits or receives SLWs.
