This may be junk science but it's fund to read anyway:



By all measures, graphene shouldn’t exist. The fact it does comes down to a neat loophole in physics that sees an impossible 2D sheet of atoms act like a solid 3D material.

New research has delved into graphene’s rippling, discovering a physical phenomenon on an atomic scale that could be exploited as a way to produce a virtually limitless supply of clean energy.

if it exists is it really a loophole in physics or is it just that we don`t really know physics like we think we do?

If they discovered a loophole, they better get a lawyer, that is their specialty.

I think this would make a lousy power source think thats far fetched. And as for a loophole thats just crazy we know why it vibrates.Carbon atoms in graphene sheets are arranged in a regularly repeating honeycomb or lattice it forms a two-dimensional crystal. Like other crystals, when enough heat or other energy is applied, the forces that bond the atoms together cause the atoms to vibrate and spread the energy throughout the material.

Sounds like a kids explanation that they just learned from school..

uh huh, lets assume its like a 9 volt battery, doesnt really put out much for its size,
but it never runs out, stack a billion of them together and power the world forever.

when it comes to renewable energy it doesnt need a big footprint to leave a big footprint....

And your explanation would be ?

Sometimes its just that simple.

Notice in the video the temprature to get it to move like that. Takes energy to get it to move this is redistribution of that energy. Be of limited value for energy since its doing the opposite. What it could be used for is frequency modulation

Topic already discussed here I think www.abovetopsecret.com...

The loophole claim does not make much sense. What would be the loophole here?

Personally I'd wait until they can show something that actually works, before getting excited.

Harvesting tiny random voltage fluctuations is something people have tried for a long time without much success afaik.

The dems want to close it.

Free energy is unfair to minorities, no more jobs.

There is another hidden invention in the making soon to be patented and locked away for like ever and ever and ever while the world starves.

That would be my assessment also. And considering how physics and scientific understanding has been refined over what we thought we knew in the past, one only has to wonder as to what we may know tomorrow?

Don't see material science ever producing the likes of say perpetual motion engines but free energy, or at least cheaply produced energy might not be beyond the bounds of whats possible to achieve.

The author of the article doesn't seem to realize that a single layer of graphene exists in the third dimension. No loop hole, just a really dumb way of explaining things.

I'm not a scientist so wont say this is a good or bad finding. I do know that progress is made one bit at a time and every once in a while, something brilliant and unexpected comes along. More power (pun intended) to the prof and his students.

It is not a loophole. It is what makes graphene possible. The movement in 3D is out of the plane graphene is in. At the nanoscale heat itself causes ripples to form and they can tap that for energy.

So it seems that carbon could withold the key to gain free unlimited energy. Could this mean we could have eternal or more energy efficient beings as we are also carbon based ?

Gonna be honest here, I know of multiple very serious efforts ongoing by groups racing headlong to be the first to indisputably and repeatably produce a viable Maxwell's demon, which this would be kinda by default too...

Far too many extremely intelligent people are privately and quietly admitting that in their professional opinions it's now only a matter of time until we see the first caged Maxwell's demons start to appear.

Oh and lol @ the usual suspects and their... I don't get it so it must be wrong bs
