New Tajmar Paper – The role of Helium

Creating the discipline of gravity design

A new publication by Dr. Tajmar (with Plesescu and Seigert) is entitled, “Anomalous Fiber Optic Gyroscope Signals Observed above Spinning Rings at Low Temperature”. It can be accessed HERE.

In the article, Tajmar confirms his earlier results reporting that, “our signals are up to 18 orders of magnitude larger” compared to classical frame-dragging spin-coupling predictions of general relativity.

But there is a new twist. The rotating helium used to cool the system has also been found to contribute to the effect. Helium was employed in Tajmar’s original experimentation series to convey cold to the niobium (Nb) superconducting sample. However, now the Nb has been shown to contribute a weaker effect and the rotating helium produces the main effect. This occurs below 25-30 degrees Kelvin, well above superconducting temperatures for Nb and only 47 degrees below that of liquid nitrogen.

Remember that Tajmar’s central tenet has been that the superconducting Nb allows for the creation of bosonic Cooper pairs and it is the movement of these bosons that produce the gravitomagnetic effect. But helium is also a boson (both nucleus and atom) and apparently the major contributor to the effect. This is still consistent with the work of Droscher and Hauser and brings into view the possibility that the rotating ring need not be of solid material nor restricted to very low temperatures.
