ScienceDaily (Apr. 19, 2010) — Physicists of the Max Born Institute in Berlin report in the latest issue of Physical Review Letters that electrons in semiconductor crystals have a negative inertial mass when strongly accelerated in an electric field.

This is at the very least interesting.

Anyone got any ideas to what this may hold in our future?

Possibly higher frequency parts, but the effect is interesting by itself.

Would bet it's a plasmon-electron interaction and not really a negative energy state, but if it was, you could do some interesting things with it.

Okay - first lets define Inertial Mass so that everyone who isn't working in physics or engineering can participate.

Mass in this context does not refer to weight or existence of matter.

Inertial mass is a measurement of an object's resistance to changing its state of motion when a force is applied.

So if the electron when accelerated to a high speed (4 million kms an hour in the article), the electron's resists change in its motion in the opposite direction of the force being applied to it.

I don't know much about physics - but let me take one wild poke. Assuming one could apply this concept of using very short interval bursts of speed in another medium -

Speeding calculation or transfers of signals or energy at choke points by adding more force at the choke point to counteract the inertia at those points, essentially using the exageration of force to maintain speed. Anticipating choke point inertia.

Seems whenever someone starts doing this sort of work we never hear about it again as it leads down the anti gravity/relativistic path.
Could it be something to do with the electron being a monopole EM point source?

The two forces we really can't explain are the two (one at a minimum) that we need to learn to leave this earth cleanly and easily. Primarily gravity and magnetism. Coincidence?

So basically it moves=it blows in

And thus a positive + and Negative - field is opened, viola, electricity,

So who wants to discuss the possibility of this effect being related to the Lienard-Wiechert potentials. After all, a self-damping negative force would be consistent with the fact that the net dipole movement of a given set of charged particles are limited by the effect of the particle's own oscillating self-interaction. If a positive dipole movement is encountered, in some fashion, a negative motion is mandatory.

It may be simply that we have simply gained an ingenious insight into the Feynman diagrams. This would be particularly relevent as we await the return of an STS orbiter from space.

Ahhhh so which came into existence within a defined field first. Defined field being Null

Negative charges, or negating charges - that is the question!

posted on Apr, 19 2010 @ 09:52 PM
no the question is how does the negating charge figure out its negating properties to achieve null

Would that fit the category of "spooky science?"

or as far as that goes pressure (+) properties apply equally to same theory

oh stop thinking inside the box,, quit cloning around lol

Perhaps it's time to think inside the quark!

So now were back to Chaos Theory

Can we really lol when we all know that sub-atomic particles are incapable of transmitting anything as large as a sound wave?

Bob,

We're now ready for the Control Theory! Please try to Get Smart!!!

So then they must obviously be cathers/recievers
