Direct Conversion of Coherent Quantum Fluctuations into Electric Energy
Concerning its basic construction, the Reid-Cell is related to a capacitor. Reid-Cells contain a solid polycrystalline silicate instead of a typical electrolyte. The Reid-Cell exhibits an entirely novel mode of generating electric energy. Here the statement “entirely novel mode” has to be taken literally.
The emission free Reid-Cell can generate a direct electric current over an unknown period of time (since 1999). Within the Reid-Cell processes play a role, which are similar to a hydropower plant. Just like a hydropower plant draws its energy from the flow of water the Reid-Cell draws its energy from an external source of energy. The hypothesis suggests that part of its generated electrical current is integrated from the quantum vacuum, besides electrochemical effects.
