Oscillators made from quantum fluctuation or casimir effect
    #3134375 - 09/14/04 03:05 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I'm working on a bit of an idea here:

I wonder if it would be possible to build a small-scale oscillator using quantum fluctuations and/or the Casimir effect. The idea is to build a device which will contain an electric field whos voltage fluctuates up and down around a given value (zero would be best, I think). My idea right now would be to use quantum fluctuations to derrive this voltage oscillation, or perhaps somehow use the Casimir effect to produce the oscillations.

If anyone has any idea where I'm going with this and thinks they may have a clue as to how we could build these oscillators, I'd be happy to split all potential profits as well as recognition with you. PM me for more details!

The casimir effect is an attractive force between two uncharged conductive plates that are very close to one another. Im not sure if you could do something with change in capacitance as the plates move (at the micronscale). With the plates uncharged, they should pull together a tiny bit. Would reading the capacitance cause a charge on the plates allowing them to seperate? Again, we are talking very small here...

My idea would involve using the force produced by the Casimir effect to create a voltage fluctuation across two terminals. The fluctuation would be extremely small, of course.

I can't see how it would work. The Casimir effect produces a constant force, not a fluctuating one.

That was my thought....butthe possibility of a voltage fluctiotion due to varyuing Distances from the casimir effect crossed my mind.

More energy invested than useful tho.
