Just had a thought, so I'm recording it here... we all know about constructive and destructive interference, otherwise known as superposition. If we superimpose two in-phase sinusoids, they increase in amplitude. If we superimpose two out-of-phase sinusoids, they decrease in amplitude.

Now, we also know that Chalmers University in 2011 pulled photons out of the Quantum Vacuum using Dynamical Casimir Effect... they vibrated a SQUID mirror at such a speed that it created a superimposed waveform of energy sufficient to concretize photons in the visible range.

What if we could somehow do the same thing, without requiring a SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) or energy input to that SQUID?

If we could somehow superimpose the EM energy permeating the QVZPE field upon itself sufficiently, we'd have concretized EM energy that we could put to good use, without any energy input from us necessary. The trick is in figuring out how to focus and collimate that energy such that it superimposes and thus constructively interferes.

Then we drop an antenna tuned to that specific frequency inline with the focused beam, and we've got voltage:


NASA has something similar to focus radio waves for interstellar astrophysical examination, it looks like a pipe within a pipe within a pipe within a pipe... apparently they're tuned in length to whatever frequency they're looking for, and those slightly cone-shaped pipes gather and focus the radio waves to a point... passive amplification. I can't find the link discussing it, but when I do, I'll include it here.

Any other ideas for focusing and collimating EM waves is welcome.

Just had a great idea... beat frequencies.

If we created resonant cavities that each had a certain resonant frequency, and which were 'detuned' from each other by a set amount, it would create a beat frequency between each of the cavities. If the beat frequency is of a frequency in the visual range (light), then photovoltaic cells could be used to generate electricity directly from the beat frequency. This negates the need of collimating the sinusoids, and allows for manufacturing tolerances making the beat frequencies between any two resonant cavities not being exactly at the desired beat frequency.
