The purpose of this experiment is to measure the Gamma Radiation emitted by the Lifter in action.
On April 6th, 2002, Saviour has used a self developping X-ray photo sheet ( commonly used by dentists ) to check if some X-Rays are emitted by the Lifter in action. The Saviour's test has been successful. See his photo below :
The Saviour's X-Rays radiation test
Saviour has said about his test ( see this full test at : http://blazelabs.com/exp05.htm ) :
<<Experiment 05 (6/4/02)- Radiation emission detection, aimed to prove that lifters work on radiation pressure difference
Result, no or negligible radiation when lifter is operated
at 30kV in air. Further experiments with my Geiger -Muller
counter based on military spec GM tube 8767, and with an NaI
detector, also gave no positive results.
Conclusions: This experiment definetely shows that
1. Radiating frequencies of very short wavelengths although theoretically present under vacuum conditions ARE NOT DETECTED when lifter is operated in air.
2. No harmful radiation is emitted from lifters when operated in air.
3. If there is radiation, then it is in the far UV or UV.
4. Health hazard only occurs when ionised gases are inhaled.
5. The frequency of the radiation pressure (in vacuum) is not the same as the frequency of the power supply driving the lifter, and is still present with a pure dc hv supply. The voltage potential across the lifter electrodes and its frequency however may effect the efficiency at which the air ions are accelerated. Radiation frequency depends only on the voltage across the electrodes.
6. So if an electric entity is being accelerated from one electrode to the other, an electric current will be created, the one we normally call 'leakage current'. This current has the ability to travel in vacuum and is responsable for the acceleration of the electrical entities being accelerated, in the same way a vacuum tube works. This would also confirm that any lifter will consume current, even in pure vacuum and to increase radiation imbalance, and higher radiation thrust they will therefore consume more current. It can also be deducted that highly insulated lifters do not work. In other words, a current flow is necessary.>>
Today, I have used another method for checking and measuring the emitted radiation. I have used a Gamma-Monitor ( Ref : B/N 108200 ), see the photo below.
Testing setup :
I have used my Lifter1 powered with the tabletop +30KV power supply. The Gamma Monitor has been placed on a plastic box and it is self-powered by its own internal batteries. ( see the photo below )
PHASE 1 : INITIAL CONDITION, the HV Power supply is OFF. ( measurement time = 165 sec )
measured ambiant Gamma Radiation in the lab is 0.10 micro Sievert/hour ( uSv/h )
PHASE 2 : LIFTER IN ACTION, the HV Power supply is ON during all the measurement time ( 165 sec ).
measured Gamma Radiation emmited by the Lifter is 0.39 micro Sievert/hour ( uSv/h )
PHASE 3 : FINAL CONDITION, the HV Power supply is switched OFF. ( measurement time = 165 sec )
measured ambiant Gamma Radiation after the test is 0.10 micro Sievert/hour( uSv/h )
Additional measurements :
measured Gamma Radiation at 40 mm from the Lifter is 0.37 micro Sievert/hour ( uSv/h
Gamma Monitor shielded with Pb Sheets, the measured ambiant Gamma
0.05 micro Sievert/hour ( uSv/h )
Pb shield and the Lifter in action, the measured Gamma Radiation
at 40 mm is
0.11 micro Sievert/hour ( uSv/h )
With the Pb sheets, the gamma radiation drops from 0.37 uSv/h to 0.11 uSv/h at 40 mm from the Lifter
thin conductive shield ( aluminum ) GROUNDED, the measured
ambiant Gamma Radiation is 0.08 micro Sievert/hour ( uSv/h )
The ambiant Gamma radiation is a bit different because, this wasn't the same day than the previous test.
gounded shield and the Lifter in action, the measured Gamma
Radiation is 0.17
micro Sievert/hour ( uSv/h )
The thin conductive aluminum grounded shield act as a Faraday cage and remove all EMI which may influence the measurement.
This serie of tests demonstrates that there is a Gamma Radiation emitted by the Lifter in action. The measured Gamma Radiation emitted by the Lifter is real and replicable, but it is very weak. ( For your information : when you go for a pulmonary radiography you receive a 20 uSv dose and the maximum allowed dose for people is 5000 uSv/year ( 0.57 uS/h ) )...
