THE UNRUH EFFECT (pdf)

The Unruh effect (or sometimes Fulling–Davies–Unruh effect) is the prediction that an accelerating observer will observe blackbody radiation where an inertial observer would observe none. In other words, the background appears to be warm from an accelerating reference frame; in layman's terms, a thermometer waved around in empty space, subtracting any other contribution to its temperature, will record a non-zero temperature. For a uniformly accelerating observer, the ground state of an inertial observer is seen as in thermodynamic equilibrium with a non-zero temperature.

The Unruh effect was first described by Stephen Fulling in 1973, Paul Davies in 1975 and W. G. Unruh in 1976. It is currently not clear whether the Unruh effect has actually been observed, since the claimed observations are disputed.

There is also some doubt about whether the Unruh effect implies the existence of Unruh radiation

This article is an in-depth review of the research around the Unruh effect.

SECRETS OF ELECTROMAGNETISM, SCALAR MAGNETIC FIELD, …

UNKNOWN SECRETS of ELECTROMAGNETISM END FREE ENERGY. NEW CONCEPTS FOR THE PHYSICAL WORLD. (2002) (pdf, in Russian)

This book is about the real, strange electromagnetic phenomena around us, which are either still ignored by modem science, or which yet have not received a complete scientific definition. The reason of the paradoxical situation, taking place in modem physics is the deep crisis of entire modem fundamental physics and, first of all, of modem science with respect to the laws of electromagnetism.

The analysis of numerous researches by various authors shows that almost all bases of modem fundamental physics, its initial philosophical and physical concepts, require complete reconsideration, and only under these conditions the bases of fundamental physics of XXI. century can be build constructed, at last.

ELECTRODYNAMICS OF PHYSICAL VACUUM. CONCEPTS FOR THE PHYSICAL WORLD. (2004) (pdf, in Russian)

This book is devoted to analysis of the fundamental base of classic and modern electrodynamics. Based on the analysis of known concepts of the real space properties, basic equations of electrostatics and electrodynamics of physical vacuum environment are derived taken into account that a charge in motion possesses two kinds of magnetic fields: the vector and the scalar ones.

The author was the first to obtain a non-contradictory form of differential equations, which is specific to a given point of observation, and which fully reflects the physical principle of close interaction, as well as the physical essence of both known and new effects of electromagnetism..
