This project provides a chance to participate in one of the truly revolutionary and transforming technologies of the century – the advent of matter-antimatter reactions as a routine power source. This technology can replace all carbon fuels, solar, hydro, geothermal and wind utterly transforming the technological basis of energy sources across the planet.
The necessary technology is available for rapid implementation although a high intensity period of development over the next 360 days – this will require an expense of at least one million dollars. The inventor and CEO, Aaron G. Filler, MD, PhD has created some of the most important technologies in use today – with licenses to Siemens, GE and Philips (from NeuroGrafix – of which Dr. Filler is also CEO). The positron provisional patent application, filed July 21, 2014 and to be assigned to Molecular Synthetics is the basis of a potential future trillion dollar renewed industrial base.
At one level, there are positron based energy storage battery systems, at the next level active power generation to drive major machinery, and at the highest level, a previously unexplored positron-electron annihilation chain reaction that can be readily kindled and controlled for nearly unlimited carbon free production of electricity in any environment on earth or in space, day or night, in a fixed facility or in a moving vehicle.
One part of the underlying technology was invented by Dr. Filler more than 20 years ago but it’s application for energy generation was not possible without the further inventions described in the July 21, 2014 provisional patent filing. The original company to which the predecessor patent was assigned – SynGenix/Sirus Pharma – held investment from some of the leading venture capitalists in Europe as well as venture investments from Lloyds Bank and was sold to Arakis in 2003, but the positron patent was then assigned to Molecular Synthetics.
In positron emission tomography (PET imaging) the technology relies on production of short half-life positron emitters, often by use of a hospital owned cyclotron – these are now small enough to be operated by power from a solar array. The positron emitter disintegrates releasing a positron – an anti-matter electron. It travels through tissue losing energy until, at rest, it fuses with an electron in a matter-antimatter reaction that releases two high energy photons (511 keV – kilo electron volts) traveling in opposite directions. In a PET scanner, we detect the simultaneous arrival of the two photons, draw a line between the two detector elements and know that the annihilation occurred along that line.
The promise of high resolution imaging is undercut, however, because the positron travels up to a centimeter before it loses enough energy to be at rest and undergo annihilation. In the original invention 20 years ago Dr. Filler showed that the distance of travel of the positron was related to the density of the medium through which it traveled so that if we put manganese-52 inside a ferrite spinel nanoparticle – the distance of travel before annihilation was reduced more than 80% and the spatial resolution of PET was greatly improved.
In the new invention, Dr. Filler exploits the high energy photons for photovoltaic energy production. Firstly, a solar photon is near 1 eV (election volt) and it takes about three of these to make one electron (33% efficiency). However, the matter-antimatter annihilation photons are each 511 keV so there is the potential for a million interactions from each annihilation. This results first in a battery since we can use solar energy to drive the cyclotron to make the positron emitter. The nanoparticles are stably solvated in liquid such as water so it is a portable, pourable, biodegradable high density source of photons for electricity generation.
