Solid-state refrigeration technique based on repeated adiabatic magnetization/demagnetization cycles of a superconductor
Background A conventional refrigerator operates by doing work to compress a fluid and letting it freely expand in a phase transition where it cools down and absorbs heat from a cold reservoir. The now hot fluid is then re-compressed, liquifying it, and then dumps the excess heat to a hot reservoir, which is usually the environment that allows the fluid...

Gravitational Camera
This technology describes how a gravimeter may be used as an gravitational imaging device. The pendulum gravimeter may include an interferometer, such as a Sagnac interferometer, to determine a displacement on the pendulum by way of a mirror attached to the pendulum. Scanning of the object may be performed in 1D, 2D, or 3D, and may result in an image...
