Researcher creates most powerful MASER ever with spare parts


www.nbcnews.com

Oxborrow, a British researcher on a shoestring budget, has just turned all things maser upside-down with a device that not only works at room temperature and without a magnetic field, but creates a microwave beam that is far, far more powerful than even its creators expected.

Groundbreaking Scientific Discovery Could Soon Make Small Sci-Fi Weapons A Reality.

Get ready to set your phasers on liquefy because a British researcher
named Mark Oxborrow has just made an amazing discovery in the field of MASERS (Microwave Amplification by Stimulated Emission). This new discovery is 100million times more powerful than any created before and does not need to be super-cooled to operate. Yes, you read that correctly 100million times more powerful and it works at room temperature!

For those of you who do not know what MASERS are - they work similar to Lasers but use microwaves instead of light.

Scientists are getting bolder and bolder. If they don't stop they could harm not only us but the whole planet. Just look at the creation of the dynamite. When it was created, it began being used for malicious purposes. Nothing good will come out of this.

A glass is half full kind of guy?

In any case. This is very cool.
Pulsed maser rifles soon to come.

Oh come on. Some good things will come out of it. Of course it will become a weapon but that's how tech works now a days. They get it and the public gets it afterwards.

Very cool.

If it can be done on a shoestring budget, and instructions for how to do it ever go open source, ahhh, well, expect all sorts of mischief to start happening as the more mischief-minded get up to some dangerous and possibly even deadly antics.

Imagine a sniper rifle with no bullet, zero concern for wind or weather, capable of exploding a melon (or anything else) just like a microwave would, at the touch of a button with a range of miles or more.

*pop* goes the weasel might be a popular song as the melons of the world's least favorite start exploding all over the globe.

His work and his diagrams can be found HERE and the "Figure 2: Anatomy of the maser" says it all.

You won't be able to find trace nor anything about this story within a matter of weeks/days/hours. This will be swept up by the military and declared Crown Property or if he steps foot on US soil they'll claim it and hide it away.

s with the starlight material that absorbed heat and radiation and could be made in a kitchen, the ever lasting light bulb, highly efficient solar panels accidentally discovered when someone got the formulation wrong, and a host of other inventions, this one won't see the light of day until some poor sod is on the receiving end of some new super weapon.

Ummm, I hate to be the one to be reasonable and rational but, if we follow your logic all of the way thru then we would have to agree that cars should never have been invented. Soon after they were publicly available they were used for all sorts of "malicious purposes". Running people over, drive by's,Bank robberies, etc.

Has dynamite ever been used for what you would deem "good purposes"?

This line of resoning is absurd at best and insane at worst.
Did you really sit down and think it all of the way thru?

I could fill an entire post with things that were invented that were then used for nefarious purposes but the list would be much shorter to list the things which haven't.
These same inventions have also been used to progress humanity and save lives.

Can you see the fallacy in your line of thinking or am I wasting my time?

one step closer to blaster pistols. bring it on! can't wait.

this is a great find...and i have to agree that most of the info on it will more than likely disappear soon.
i was a bit disappointed in that i could not find a link that showed a 'working' demonstration.
i have OFTEN wondered how many other futuristic tools are actually in secretive use today or are in a prototype state....

good article.
thank you.

This post is 100% correct because this device could potentially be used for things like: Cell Service, Long Range Wi-Fi Service, Wireless/Remote Power Transmission, Imaging Equipment in Hospitals, Long Range Ground & Space Based Communication Systems and that's just a few of the things!

Just a thought... if reality is stranger than fiction, well who knows, I thought I head from somewhere that the ideas and weapons and gagets on the original Star Trek were not the product of imagination. But rather of them being revealed to gene R by some secret source. Maybe as a way to fictionalize them, hide them even more, and make them seem like just product of a sci fi show.

Ummm, YES!

Blowing up tree stumps, clearing rockfalls, mining etc

Marvin the Martian would be proud....

It brings him one step closer to making his "Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator" . This discovery should go a long way to helping him acheive that goal.

Back to the present interesting find.. While im not familiar with this part of science could this discovery have any application when it comes to room temprature fusion reators?

There is a poor man's EMP weapon.
I wonder what range it could do against NODs or thermals.
