I was planning to replicate Holmlid's experiment since I have the necessary equipment in my home lab. However, I gleaned from various sources, including Holmlid himself, that using the decay of the muons directly is better than converting heat to electricity. So I would rather start from here.
In my research I stumbled upon this patent : Electricity generation from muons.pdf
The basic idea is that you trap the atmospheric muons with an alternating magnetic field which you create by running an AC current through a copper coil at a frequency wich is " an integer multiple of the Compton wavelength of the muon". Then the trapped muons decay and the electrons are trapped by another coil that sits inside the first one and flow to a load.
They say the COP is 380, which is tremendous.
The idea seems simple enough. In practice ( and because I am a humble amateur chemist and I know little about electronics) I need to know :
1) if this is doable with a commercial signal generator such as this one ( signal generator ).
2) what frequency are we talking about exactly ? I found one website according to which the Compton wavelength of the muon is 11.734 441 11 x 10-15 m
If 1) is no then could someone tell me what to get to replicate this patent ? Thanks.
