Positive Energy Density for the Alcubierre Warp Field Equations Using an
RF-Driven Dielectric Resonant Cavity
AbstractWe have established mathematically that there exists the potential to
realize a positive required energy density in order to warp spacetime.
By using a complex shaping function where the imaginary part is greater
than the real part, the solution to the expression for the required
energy density is positive. This ultimately makes it feasible to
selectively bend spacetime for the purposes of propelling a craft.
We have devised an experiment that utilizes a material having the
properties of possessing a greater imaginary component to the dielectric
constant than real component. This material, introduced into a resonant
cavity, sets up the conditions to realize a shaping function in the form
as is utilized in the Alcubierre's metric. We have established a
potential structure from which to build better experiments.
