I am a retired Engineering Technologist that has worked in the telecommunications field for over 30 years. My field of expertise was primarily focused on digital switching systems and fiber optics. Since my retirement, I have been focusing my time on other passions, such as: cosmology and the development of a Theory Of Everything. I am currently working on a new and unique design of a gravitational wave detector. A description of my world view is available at: pcmhahn.wixsite.com/foamyether
This article describes a unique design for a device that will detect gravitational waves directly. The technique used in this design is based on the inflow that is predicted by Foamy Ether Theory (FET). Unlike current interferometer-based detectors that claim to measure distortions of space caused by gravitational waves, the proposed Time Variance...
The assumption that matter and space are two separate entities (or substances) has resulted in the creation and development of two mutually exclusive theories of reality: quantum mechanics and relativity. The power of these two theories is undeniable, however they are incompatible and there are many questions which cannot be resolved. The belief th...
Gravitational waves, like EM waves, can be used to transport intelligent signals. Alien civilizations may be advanced enough to know how to generate (and/or modulate) gravitational waves. Gravitational waves would probably be the preferred method of extraterrestrial communication for the following reasons: 1 Advanced alien civilizations would use g...
A device for measuring changes in the flow of time, capable of detecting gravitational waves, is disclosed. The device consists of an array of coherent light sources (such as lasers) with optical spectrum analyzers located in the center. The lasers are located as far away from each other as possible and are connected to the Optical Spectrum Analyze...
Versions 4 and 5 are major upgrades from the previous phased antenna array. Newly designed antenna elements were built by using a CNC router to carve out loop antennas on one-sided copper coated circuit boards. Instead of using twin wire loops to form an antenna element, four circuit board pairs were assembled. Each antenna element is composed of t...
This invention is a device that generates gravitational waves which can be configured as a thruster or a communication device. The device is comprised of a linear antenna array that is injected with a Radio Frequency (RF) signal. The antennas are configured in such a way that the electromagnetic (EM) waves are converted into gravitational waves. Wh...
Measuring the movement of the device was accomplished by using the test configuration as shown in Figure 9 and Photo 1. The antenna array and RF Power Divider were suspended from the ceiling. A laser diode module projected the laser light onto a mirror which was fixed on the device at a 45 degree angle. The laser beam reflected off of the mirror an...
After successfully achieving similar residual noise correlations in Andrew Jackson’s cleaned data (of GW150914), I decided to apply the same analysis process to LIGO’s raw data on all GW events using MATLAB and its wavelet analyzer toolbox. The raw data was downloaded from Gravitational Wave Science Center: https://www.gw-openscience.org/catalog/GW...
This article was inspired by an interesting analysis that was published in the article, "On the time lags of the LIGO signals" . Andrew Jackson is part of the Theoretical Particle Physics & Cosmology Group  at the Niels Bohr Institute . The group found some peculiar and unexpected correlations in residual noise between the Hanford and Livi...
The following article describes a unique and innovative design for a gravitational wave detector. Unlike current interferometer-based detectors that claim to measure distortions of space caused by gravitational waves, a Time Variance-Gravitational Wave Detector (TV-GWD) measures changes in the rate of flow of time. Details of the design are present...
This project documents my progress on the design and construction of a Gravitational Wave Generator. The invention can be configured as a GW communication device or a GW thruster that can be used as a method of propulsion. Photos and test results of the prototype are included.
This project is an enhancement of my previous prototype of a Time Variance – Gravitational Wave Detector. It includes the following additions/changes: 1. The Bi-Cell photodiode was replaced with two single pixel photodiodes (MTD5010W) mounted beside each other (distance of 5mm). The width of the laser beam hitting the photodiodes is approximately 8mm at this point. 2. The photodiode circuit board was changed from two channel output to a ‘light balance’ configuration with a single output channel. This eliminated the need to capture two channels separately and later combine them during down-stream processing. 3. The light balance circuit is powered by a +/- 5V battery supply to eliminate any 60Hz power supply noise. It is also encased in a metal enclosure to shield it from EM interference. 4. The light balance circuit is connected to a high-speed analog to digital capture card (PCIE-1840L from Advantech). The PCIE card is capable of a four channel A/D conversion at a rate of 80 Msps (Mega samples per second) with a 16 bit resolution. This gives the TV-GWD the capability of detecting gravitational waves with a frequency as high as 40MHz.
