      @All
      I have strong evidence that non-electrical magnetic cores will not
      exhibit the "free energy." Therefore most ferrite cores will not
      work. Iron powder core is another story. You want nanocrystalline and
      amorphous magnetic material. Please study my wiki, albeit it is
      presently a quick job -->

      http://peswiki.com/index.php/Site:MEMM

      You will note that both Naudin's silicon iron and Metglas versions use
      Method #1, which relies on Eddy currents as a tool of capturing MCE
      energy. This information is not based on unproven theories. Rather,
      it is a recent discovery based on very well known conventional
      physics. In the above wiki there two examples which go through
      extreme details in a step-by-step process explaining exactly what is
      happening within the magnetic material on an atomic scale.

      Nanocrystalline material possesses huge internal energy exchanges. For
      example, a study by Skorvánek and Kovác shows that nanocrystalline
      material well below Curie temperature has roughly one fourth MCE as Gd
      alloys. For example, one cubic inch of good nanocrystalline material
      toroid core oscillating at 100 KHz with an applied field to generate
      internal 1 T-peak fields produces over 15 million joules in one
      second, which is over 15 megawatts! The amount of power required to
      generate an oscillating 1 T-peak 100 KHz field within such material is
      but a fraction of a watt. In other words, it requires but a fraction
      of a watt to produce megawatts of power exchanged within the
      nanocrystalline magnetic core material.

      There are several problems here. The main problem being that magnetic
      material is very effective in absorbing MCE energy. Another issue is
      in choosing material. Nanocrystalline may exibit megawatts as in the
      above example as compared to a few hundred watts in typicall iron
      cores. Trying to capture but an infintesimal amount of that MCE energy
      is difficult enough in nanocrystalline material. Therefore such
      attempts with large domain materials such as typical iron is extremely
      difficult. The good news is there are various techniques to overcome
      this, as detailed in my wiki.

      What is very interesting is that while pacing in the backyard one late
      night I designed a machine entirely based on my MCE theory. I stood
      back looking at the design and said, "Hey, that's the MEG!!!"

      I studied one of Naudin's silicon iron versions and discovered Naudin
      incorrectly interpreted his scope. After painstakingly analyzing the
      scope pictures, counting the power over time pixel by pixel I
      concluded that it was not generating "free energy." Then I went to
      his Metglas version and without doubt it generates "free energy."
      Naudin supplies sufficient information to easily conclude that either
      he falsified the scope pictures or his scope is terribly
      malfunctioning or it generates free energy. It is unfortunate so many
      other people at other sites have published false science regarding
      Naudin's results. I debated with one such key person in private PM
      about this and he concluded that I was correct; i.e., you cannot
      dispute the scope pictures. The odds of Naudin's scope to
      malfunctioning in such a manner is slim and none. In other words, if
      we apply 50 KHz sine wave signal in addition to a 400 MHz signal on
      say a 20 MHz scope then the scope will simply dampen out the 400 MHz
      signal without affecting the 50 KHz signal unless the 400 MHz signal
      was intense enough to saturate. If that's the case then knowing my
      physics we have a 400 MHz signal that radiates outrageous amounts of
      energy.

      In a nutshell, Naudin's silicon iron version I analyzed did not
      exhibit "free energy," but the Metglas version did.

      Hopefully sometime soon the first fully and freely published "smoking
      gun", self-running, closed loop "free energy" machine will be released
      with extreme building instructions. See the overunity.com links at the
      bottom of my peswiki page for further details about the release
      process. The goal has been early 2007, but I could not be more pleased
      if someone completed this before 2007. The goal is not about
      self-profiting, but about helping this world. What will be a great day!

      Kind regards,

        Hi Paul, interesting stuff. In looking into it a little further, I
        also see that Harold Aspden mentions the magnetocaloric effect as a
        part of his work. It seems to have some merit; I calculated the
        energy stored in a hypothetical 1 cubic meter specimen of iron evenly
        permeated with a 1 tesla magnetic flux, and compared that with the
        energy generated as heat during a 1k temp rise. The energy generated
        as heat is almost 9 times that stored in the magnetic field. Seems
        like a sort of heat engine, where cop > 1 does not violate the 1st
        law of Thermodynamics. Can you explain again the mechanism that
        allows you to tap this excess heat as electrical energy? I did not
        quite undersatnd the Wiki article in this respect.

        You know, it appears as if nature may have fooled us into incorrectly calculating the heat energy of the iron after magnetization. Read on to find out why.

          You know, it appears as if nature may have fooled us into incorrectly
          calculating the heat energy of the iron after magnetization. Read on
          to find out why.

          According to my sources on the subject, the magnetocaloric effect is
          due to a reduction in degrees of freedom of the iron molecules in the
          presence of a magnetic field, which causes an increase in entropy
          (and therefore temperature). The decrease in temp when the field is
          removed is due to the opposite. This mechanism is important to
          understand, because it gives a hint as to what is going on in the
          system from an energetic point of view.

          Now, look a little closer at the specific heat of the iron, before
          and after magnetization. Excess energy can only be generated if we
          assume the specific heat of the sample stays above a certain
          threshold. Does this happen in our case? I dont believe so! The
          reason is that the specific heat is also DEPENDANT UPON THE DEGREE OF
          FREEDOM OF THE MOLECULES THAT MAKE UP THE SAMPLE! The less degrees of
          freedom, the less energy the molecule can absorb without increasing
          its rate of vibration (and the resulting temperature of the mat'l).
          This known, you can probably predict what I am going to say next -
          That the energy generated as heat only APPEARS to be greater than the
          energy of the magnetic field! My hypothesis is that it is actually
          not, because the specific heat decreases proportionally to the change
          in entropy.

          I believe this is the calculation that links molecular entropy to
          specific heat: Cp = T(del_S/del_T). (S = entropy, T = absolute temp)

          Anyone?

            Hi richar18,

            There are several methods. Method #1 is the easiest. Normally MCE
            (magnetocaloric effect) heats up, cools down, etc. In electrical
            conductors such as iron and Metglas a lot of the MCE energy goes to
            micro eddy current bursts. Normally the eddy currents dissipate all
            the energy in the form of heat. If you pulse the core at the correct
            speed you will get a _coherent_ avalanche pulse. IOW, the avalanches
            are occurring at roughly the same time. You'll get eddy currents. When
            the Eddy currents reach peak then your receiving coil will attempt to
            rob as much energy from the Eddy currents. You do this by placing a
            load across the coil.

            Picture a nano size group of atoms that flip. There are many factors
            that determine the flip rate such as magnetic field strength, but free
            electrons plays a huge role. The free electrons act as inductance,
            resist the flipping magnetic moments. (You can see this effect by
            dropping a neo magnet down a hollow Al tube.) This gives a micro eddy
            burst. So you could say its like a microscopic coil around the
            avalanche, which is a good thing so as to collect a high percentage of
            the MCE energy.

            Under normal conditions you have millions of micro eddy currents that
            are simultaneously increasing and decreasing all over the place within
            the core. In other words, the bursts are not coherent. Micro eddy
            bursts do not last very long, which is why you need to pulse the core
            fast enough and then quickly absorb some energy from the eddy
            currents. Although, when the eddy currents occur at the same time then
            the bursts decay at a much slower rate, which is a good thing.

            Where the energy comes from is fascinating. Without ambient
            temperature (vibrating atoms) magnetic material would align (saturate)
            and that's the end of the story. Even when you remove the applied
            field the core would remain magnetized. It is vibrating atoms that
            give low coercivity. So when you remove the applied field it is the
            atoms that _force_ the magnetic moments to break alignment with the
            net magnetic field. That requires energy, which is exactly why
            magnetic materials cool down when the applied field is removed. That
            is where MCE energy comes from. Even the NASA guy who contacted me agreed.


            Trying to compute the energy relative to the field strength is perhaps
            not the correct method. Consider two PM's each on swivels, so they can
            rotate. The PM's are rotated so they repel each other. The magnetic
            fields cancel each other, so the net magnetic field is relatively low,
            just within close proximity of each PM. Now allow the PM's to quickly
            rotate so they align. You get energy _plus_ you get a net magnetic
            field, lol. Magnetic moments also rotate as IBM's experiments
            revealed. Normally this flip/rotation rate takes a few nanoseconds,
            but in electrically conductive materials such as iron and metglas it
            takes many microseconds.

              Sorry, I meant the entropy of the sample TRIES to DECREASE when the
              field is applied. However if the conditions are adiabatic, the
              entropy does not change due to the increase in temperature of the
              sample (hence the effect). Under isothermal conditions, the entropy
              of the sample DOES actually decrease, because of the heat transfer
              to the environment.

              Essentially what is going on is that the dynamics of the molecular
              structure of the mat'l change under the influence of a magnetic
              field; this change is characterized by a reduction in the molecular
              degrees of freedom. Since the molecular degrees of freedom reduce,
              two things can happen: 1) the entropy also reduces proportionately,
              due to the presence of a heat sink and an open system, or 2) The
              entropy remains unchanged due to adiabatic conditions and a closed
              system - the temperature rises to compensate for the change in
              molecular degrees of freedom.

              You see, In order to conserve energy when the entropy of the
              molecules tries to decrease, the 2nd law of thermodynamics causes
              the temperature of the sample to rise (under adiabatic conditions
              and a closed system, as previously stated). This effectively cancels
              the effort to destroy entropy in the closed system, thus thwarting
              the creation of energy.

              So there is no excess energy after all, and the laws of
              thermodynamics are what actually cause the magnetocaloric effect to
              happen in the first place! Kind of dissapointing... All you have is
              another way to convert the energy of a magnetic field into heat.

                Hi richar18,

                The energy contained in the magnetic field of a magnetized core is not
                represented by the energy consumed by the coil/circuit. For example,
                consider material with twice the permeability & same dimensions and
                you'll see it requires half the energy to bring such material to the
                same magnetic field intensity.

                Yes there is a change in specific heat due to MCE, but it is known
                this can increase as well as decrease depending on the material and
                conditions.

                You cannot discount the fact there is energy release when the magnetic
                moments align.

                I'll add further comments below :

                The guy from NASA disagrees with the above theory and agreed with my
                theory as to why it cools. He clarified that the vibrating atoms knock
                the magnetic moments out of alignment, which requires energy and cools
                the material.

                Furthermore, your above theory does not work on nanocrystalline
                magnetic materials, which indeed are saturated on the domain level,
                but still exhibit strong MCE roughly 10,000 to 100,000 times stronger
                than ferrites, iron, and other magnetic materials, and only 1/4th of
                the best Gd alloys, which my theory all predicts.

                If I am in error then please point out the error.

                  This reply is only geared towards the comment regarding the energy it
                  takes to magnetize with respect to permeability. I will respond to
                  the excess MCE energy later:

                  It is a misnomer that it takes half the energy to generate the same
                  magnetic field within a mat'l of twice the permeability. Lets first
                  use a coil/core as an example. The greater the permeability of the
                  core, the higher the inductance of the system. The higher the
                  inductance, the more voltage is required to generate the same
                  magnetic field, albeit with proportionally less current. The energy
                  consumed by the coil is the same regardless of the core permeability.

                  Another way to look at it is to identify the force it takes to detach
                  a magnet from a piece of magnetic mat'l. The energy inside the
                  magnetic mat'l due to the magnetizing field is equal to the energy it
                  will take to seperate the magnet from the mat'l over a distance until
                  the force of attraction equals zero. This energy rises with
                  permeability, because the force vs distance increases in proportion
                  to the permeability.

                  I would like to stress that if permeability increases, it takes the
                  SAME amount of energy to generate the same field within a mat'l of
                  the same dimensions.

                  Now regarding specific heat, what mat'ls show a rise in Cp under
                  influence of a magnetic field? Because I would be inclined to think
                  that they cool, instead of heat.

                    Hi richar18,

                    You have math errors in one of your previous posts. First, the energy
                    in a magnetic field is B*V/(2*u0) B is in Tesla's, V=cubic meters, u0
                    is permeability of free space.

                    If you would like to understand where the energy is coming from then
                    you need to ask a few questions.

                    1) Consider very cold magnetic material, say pure iron, at a few 0 K.
                    The magnetic moments self align with no aid. How much energy does it
                    require to break those alignments? Even NASA knows its ambient
                    temperature that breaks the magnetic alignment, which cools the
                    material. Has nothing to do with your idea.
                    2) How much energy is given off when all the magnetic moments are
                    aligned? Even a disinformationist could not deny this energy. Well,
                    maybe they could. :-)
                    3) Ask yourself why it is common for MCE to suddenly produce very
                    little change in temperature when a certain temperature is reached.
                    4) Ask yourself why iron exhibits very little MCE even if you were to
                    apply a 60 T field.
                    5) Nearly all the magnetic moments in iron are saturated on the domain
                    level, but experiences hardly no MCE. Yet nanocrystalline is also
                    saturated on the domain level, but experiences large MCE. Were you
                    aware that most of the Finemet atoms are already saturated on the
                    domain level, yet Finemet has 1/4 MCE as the best Gd alloys.
                    6) MCE is real temperature change, not an illusion. It's used as deep
                    freezing. Apply 1 T field to Finemet core and you get 1 K change in
                    temperature. Did you know the heat capacity changes roughly 1/500th
                    (0.2%)? Now you have material that's 1 K above room temperature. You
                    calculate how much energy it require to increase 1 cubic inch of that
                    material by 1 K. :-) How about 450 J/KgK * 1.0K * 0.13Kg = 59 Joules.
                    I'll repeat, it requires ~59 J to heat that material by 1 K. Repeat,
                    the heat capacity of the magnetic only changes ~0.2%.
                    7) How much are they paying you to spread disinformation, lol. Just
                    kidding ... I think. ;-)

                    richar18, would you care to share your name or are you going to ignore
                    me for like the fourth time and converse with yourself? You asked me a
                    lot of questions and then ignore me. :-)

                    God bless you,
                    Paul Lowrance

                      Sorry Paul, My name is Brandon. Didnt mean to ignore you, anonymity
                      has become a habit when posting on these groups.

                      I need to keep this short I am at work.

                      Your formula for magnetic field energy is not quite correct, you
                      forgot to square "B". It is (B^2*V)/(2u0). I know the formula well,
                      I will have to double check my math for simple errors if the answer
                      is not right :).

                      What I stated regarding the Magnetocaloric effect was not my idea,
                      but is based on existing scientific research on the matter. I did
                      not know about the effect before you posted about it. I am not
                      spreading disinformation, just stating a null hypothesis. Please
                      prove it wrong (with actual testing), as I would like this to be
                      real as much as anyone.

                      I know there is a real temp change, but did NOT know that the Cp
                      only changed by 1/500th. IF this is true, then I will have a very
                      hard time providing any theoretical evidence against the excess
                      energy claim. How do you know this is the case?

                      I just wanted someone with more knowledge on the subject than myself
                      to look into the relationship between specific heat and MCE temp
                      change. Have you done any experimentation to show this excess
                      energy? I know there is a device that measures the Cp of a mat'l
                      undergoing the MCE. Wonder how easily it would be to get ahold of
                      one of these? proving the specific heat stays relatively constant
                      would be very good ammo for the proof of the excess energy.

                      Regards,
                      Brandon

                        Paul, take a look at this link:

                        http://flux.aps.org/meetings/YR00/MAR00/abs/S5910006.html

                        It is the abstract of a meeting of scientists representing the Ames
                        laboratory at the Iowa State Unv. I found these statements
                        particulary interesting:

                        "Precise heat capacity data collected as a function of temperature
                        in various magnetic fields is one of the most accurate indirect
                        techniques available for the characterization of magnetothermal
                        properties of magnetic materials"

                        and

                        "The use of heat capacity data to calculate the magnetocaloric
                        properties of magnetic solids along with a detailed analysis of
                        resulting errors and comparison with other indirect and direct
                        magnetocaloric measurements techniques will be given."

                        Looks like maybe I could be right about the relationship between the
                        MCE and specific heat?

                        Note one of the presenting scientists is Karl Gschneider, a pioneer
                        in the field of Magnetocaloric mat'ls.

                        I wish I could get some of the data presented, to see how the
                        specific heat actually varies for the mat'ls tested. It is a
                        scientific fact that Cp varies proportionally to the change in
                        entropy of the mat'l due to the applied field, but I dont know what
                        the scaling is. My basic physics background tells me the specific
                        heat varies in a way that gives further credence to the 1st law of
                        thermodynamics.

                        BTW, if the guy from NASA doesnt agree with the entropy/molecular
                        degree of freedom based description of the MCE, then he is
                        disagreeing with research findings by many scientists who have
                        studied the subject. This is the only scientific way I have seen the
                        effect described. Couple this with the fact that Cp is also linked
                        directly to the entropy/molecular D.O.F of the mat'l, and I think
                        you have a pretty logical framework for understanding the true
                        nature of the effect.

                          I found further evidence to help my argument regarding the reduction
                          in specific heat cancelling any possible excess energy gains due to
                          MCE. Read the following paper:

                          http://www.ntnu.edu.tw/acad/result/respro/90/ord903-3.pdf

                          Note that with the application of a 200 Oe magnetization field at
                          ~25C, the specific heat (of the fluid) decreases about 40%! I feel
                          that this alone is almost enough info to disprove the 1/500th
                          decrease you quoted earlier. Granted this is a magnetic fluid and
                          not a solid, but the mechanism is the same.

                          Also note that the conclusion states almost verbatim what I am using
                          as the basis for my argument.

                          P.S. - its obviously my lunch time!

                            You made another math error. I meticulously proved this last year. Any
                            circuit simulation program will show you. If you double the
                            permeability of material then it requires half the applied field to
                            equal the same net field. The di/dt increases at half the rate, but
                            takes the same time to reach half the current. Again, note that half
                            the current results in the same net field in double permeability. Same
                            voltage, half current = half power. Check it out yourself ->

                              Understood. I think you'll find that you forgot the 1/2 factor in your
                              math. I got ~1/18, not 1/9th, but we both know that's an inaccurate
                              method (possibly highly inaccurate) due to complex internal fields.
                              It's kind humorous, take my missing ^2 and add it in your missing 1/2
                              and we have a fully non-mistyped equation, lol.

                              I'm not certain of that. Here what a NASA employee who worked on MCE
                              recently emailed me :

                              "Then we remove the magnetic field when the materials temperature is
                              still above Tc. Now as the spins relax back to a random state it take
                              the energy to rotate from the lattice and cools the crystal."

                              We know that it requires real energy to break (flip) the alignment of
                              many aligned magnetic moments. You acknowledge that, correct?

                              That was for a nanocrystalline material, Finemet, since that's the
                              wonder material of interest. :-) -->
                              http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/klu/cjop/2004/00000054/A00100s4/00000061;jsessionid=21mb18ken30yi.alice

                              An entropy change for the Finemet is 0.72 J/KgK. Using a specific heat
                              of iron ~ 460 J/KgK, that's a mere 1/639th change in entropy. We both
                              know that the heat is real; i.e., it actually heats up things, lol. So
                              how much energy would it require to heat up such material even if the
                              heat capacity was (460 - 0.72)? BTW, are you sure the heat capacity
                              increases for most materials? It seems the NASA guy wrote that in his
                              case it actually increased, meaning that it requires more energy to
                              heat it up. Note that Finemet (Fe80.5Nb7B12.5) in the abstract is
                              1/4th MCE as Gd alloys, which is significant, roughly 1 K change in
                              temperature per Tesla. That's a lot of energy for just one energy
                              exchange.

                              But I never stated the energy came from nothing. :-) Although the
                              above quotes don't claim as to _how_ the material heats up. It just
                              states that entropy and temperature go hand in hand, but even that I
                              question. For example I seriously doubt they studied nanocrystalline
                              materials, the wonder material. I believe your description describes
                              Magnetostriction where magnetic field strain causes change in size,
                              which in itself would cause temperature changes. We know from pure
                              physics that by moving aligned magnetic moments closer to each other
                              requires energy and viscera. Although note the Magnetostriction in
                              nanocrystalline materials is nearly zero. Magnetostriction for Metglas
                              2714AF is <<1 ppm! That in itself could indicate the large MCE in such
                              materials is not caused by magnetic strains, at least for
                              nanocrystalline materials.

                              I don't think the above quotes describe how MCE takes place. Lets try
                              to analyze in further detail what's happening. We know for fact that a
                              magnetic moment that is allowed to align will rotate, thereby adding
                              radiation energy. That being the case my MCE theory is true. You might
                              suggest that it does not generate as much energy as I thought. If it
                              does or does not remains to be seen. According to your math such
                              alignment would add 1/9th the reported MCE energy. I calculated
                              1/18th. Regardless, even 1/18th of 15 megawatts is not so shabby for
                              one cubic inch of nanocrystalline material. :-) Anyhow, the aligning
                              moments adds energy, but lets not confuse that effect with magnetic
                              strain. We need to view the atoms as not aligned, and then instantly
                              aligned to not focus on the radiated energy associated with flip. We
                              then see magnet strain on the material. So the iron atoms move at the
                              same velocity, but the vibration rate is faster. The air atoms will
                              strike the iron atoms at the same rate. So in order to add more energy
                              to the air atoms the iron atoms need to increase in velocity, not
                              vibration rate. Remember, the air atoms will still strike the iron
                              atom the same amount of collisions per second.

                              Relatively speaking there's not an enormous amount of data regarding
                              MCE, and all that data as far as I can find (with exception of the
                              NASA guy) does not form any specific details on the atomic scale
                              what's happening. Only that there's a change in entropy, which is fine
                              with me. :-) Understandably the energy is coming from some place, and
                              the result is a change in entropy. I'm happy with that.

                              Yes, you are correct with respect to an internal field. However, I was under the impression that it is not the internal field that the MCE is reliant upo, but

                                Yes, you are correct with respect to an internal field. However, I
                                was under the impression that it is not the internal field that the
                                MCE is reliant upo, but the magnetizing field, "H". My energy
                                calculations dont work when you consider the internal field, you are
                                correct. But THERE IS NO ENERGY STORED IN THE INTERNAL FIELD OF AN
                                INDUCTOR. The energy is stored in the "H" field. I can prove this if
                                you like.

                                    questions? Here they are again mixed with some other comments -->

                                    No, the unpaired electron has no way of telling "Oh, this is the field
                                    from a coil" and "Oh, this is the field from another unpaired
                                    electron spin." Nor does it care. Do you agree?

                                    There sure is. Your math crunching was just off by 1/2. According to
                                    modern physics E = V*B^2/(2*u0). Are you suggesting this equation is
                                    incorrect? The energy is supposedly coming form the intrinsic electron
                                    spin, ***but*** you ***cannot** (as far as I know) keep that energy!
                                    I took this topic up with various QM physicists last year. I suggested
                                    that _perhaps_ the quantum foam or something is cooling down and I
                                    suggested an experiment. They really had no answer as to where the
                                    energy would come from, but encouraged my experiment.


                                    > The energy is stored in the "H" field. I can prove this if you like.

                                    You mean you can show us that there is no _known_ method of
                                    permanently keeping that energy. Nobody said the energy was
                                    permanently available unless of course you keep the core magnetized
                                    forever.

                                    I think it is important here that you please confirm there is
                                    potential energy when magnetic moments go from no alignment to
                                    alignment. Do you acknowledge that?

                                    That statement definitely does not claim or provide the details what
                                    you think. Lets go over the statement -->

                                    1. "An applied magnetic field forces the atoms into alignment" Correct.
                                    2. "reducing the system's heat capacity" Not always the case. The
                                    NASA guy for example worked on MCE where the heat capacity
                                    _increased_. :-) But this is moot because I already stated that the
                                    energy must come from someplace. Stating there's a dS has no affect on
                                    my theory. What if Magnetostriction also changed with dT. Does that
                                    mean the energy comes from Magnetostriction? Of course not. That's not
                                    science. Avalanche radiation is a fact! If you study internal
                                    radiation you learn the core shorts most of the magnetic fields
                                    because it's a close loop field and most of the UHF radiation is
                                    absorbed near the avalanche burst. If the core is electrically
                                    conductive then we have Eddy currents, which absorb a lot of the
                                    energy, which again heats up the core. The energy is there. You have
                                    the equations.
                                    3. "causing it to expel energy" Correct. Just as he said it "atoms
                                    into alignment" The atom alignment causes the energy. That is exactly
                                    my theory. If anything his explanation is closer to my theory. My
                                    theory is about gaining energy from atoms aligning. There are probably
                                    dozens of effects occurring with an applied field such as dS and
                                    Magnetostriction.

                                    Furthermore, I merely have to show you just one example to disprove
                                    your theory. You are failing to acknowledge nearly all MCE data
                                    contradicts what you are saying. You even acknowledged it yourself
                                    that if the heat capacity changed by a small % that it would kill your
                                    theory. I showed you one of many examples, Finemet, which dS changed
                                    by less than 1/600. Again, do you acknowledge that?

                                    Look at nearly all MCE data. It is scattered all over the net showing
                                    small entropy changes for big MCE on solids containing metals. One
                                    would have to filter out nearly all MCE data on the net to find what
                                    you found, which was a fluid.

                                    Regards,
                                    Paul Lowrance

                                      Your explanation of the effect does not point to anything excess. I
                                      am in agreement that the heating is caused by the alignment of the
                                      moments. I am also in agreement that the ambient environment
                                      destroys the alignment of the domains. But I do not see any extra
                                      energy in this interaction.

                                      As for rates of vibration, you are right this does not really factor
                                      in. The decrease in molecular of degrees of freedom by the alignment
                                      of the moments cause an increase in AMPLITUDE (therefore heat) of
                                      the molecule. Imagine a string vibrating in 3 dimensions. If you
                                      then force it to vibrate in only 2 dimensions (reduce DOF) its
                                      amplitude increases. Its as simple as that. When you give back the
                                      third dimension, its amplitude decreases. Simple stuff, no excess
                                      energy.

                                      Regarding the paper you posted, the scaling of the specific heat vs
                                      the entropy change is what matters in this case, not the entropy
                                      alone. Just because the entropy changes by only 0.72 J/Kg*K (which
                                      may not even be the case, due to misunderstanding, since I am
                                      assuming neither one of us has paid the $40 to read the full paper),
                                      does not mean the specific heat can not change by more than this. It
                                      is actually a fact that Cp will change SIGNIFICANTLY with respect to
                                      its baseline value for finemet, at the temps used in the paper. This
                                      is because the specific heat of a magnetic mat'l changes
                                      exponentially as you approach the Curie temp (the slope rises almost
                                      vertically as you increase temp toward Tc, and drops even steeper as
                                      you continue increasing temp away from Tc), which is related to why
                                      the MCE is greatest at the Curie temp. Take a look at the graph on
                                      pg 8 of the following writeup:

                                      http://www.msm.cam.ac.uk/phase-trans/mphil/MP4-1.pdf

                                      As the temp of the core increases from the Curie temp to some value
                                      above, the Cp drops off an extreme amount.

                                      The abstract of the paper you sent me doesnt prove anything. Do you
                                      have any substantial evidence of your theory? All I can seem to find
                                      is info pointing to the significant decrease of Cp in proportion to
                                      the temp increase by the MCE, thereby removing any mysticism behind
                                      the effect.

                                      One more thing - I am not confusing anything with magnetostriction.
                                      I have seen many specific definitions for MCE, and the causal
                                      mechanism (aligning domains cause reduction in DOF, thereby
                                      decreasing entropy and increasing temp). Its all very simple in
                                      those terms. regarding the "1/9th or 1/18th energy" that is only if
                                      Cp stays constant (which from the above paper we know it drops
                                      DRASTICALLY as you go above the Curie temp). Since it does not stay
                                      constant, or even close to it, my hypothesis remains that the Cp
                                      reduction accounts for the (incorrectly assumed?) "excess" heat
                                      energy.

                                      And yes, from EVERYTHING I have read so far the Cp drops with MCE.

                                        time, but I'll briefly reply below :

                                        I'm glad that you're now in agreement with both the NASA guy and me at
                                        least on the ambient cooling. ;-) I'll copy & paste a section from my

                                        Just wanted to quickly explain why it's not accurate
                                        (not complete) to say the amount of energy is
                                        associated with the net field E=V*B^2/(2U0). We
                                        calculated that if we merely consider the energy in
                                        the field we get 1/18th. We know there is a net mean
                                        field of 1 T. That is a given, but lets analyze more
                                        details. To understand the energies involved so we
                                        don't create something from nothing lets analyze this
                                        with current carrying tiny coils. Take 1000's of tiny
                                        coils that have no current that are near each other to
                                        form a one body. This body is in the form of a toroid.
                                        Increase the currents till a net field of 1 T forms.
                                        So a field strength of 1 Tesla just entered all the
                                        coil loops. So we have a net energy change from the
                                        entire magnetic field, E=V*B^2/(2U0). Note that no
                                        parts were moved, so we have no mechanical energy. The
                                        only energy gained was in the magnetic field, but this
                                        took energy from the coils-- back emf (magnetic line
                                        breaking). Note that the coil currents increased and
                                        were not DC like permanent magnets (intrinsic electron
                                        spin).

                                        So lets do another experiment and say all the coils
                                        are separated distance wise, miles away from each
                                        other. Each coil will now have DC current. All the
                                        coils now move toward each other so they form the body
                                        again with 1 T net field. Note that this time the
                                        induced voltage is the same, but we gained both
                                        magnetic field energy and mechanical energy because
                                        all the DC current coils are magnetically attracted
                                        toward each other. This requires more energy because
                                        we have DC current rather than an increasing current.
                                        If we graph this we see it takes twice as much energy
                                        from the coils. So the gained mechanic energy equals
                                        the gain field energy.

                                        Now lets take this one step further. Instead of the DC
                                        current coils being separated, lets just place them
                                        all next to each other (again one big toroid), but
                                        force them to all cancel each others fields out. That
                                        means one coil will be north, the next south, the next
                                        north, etc. This has even more potential energy
                                        because the fields from neighboring coils go the
                                        opposite direction inside the coil and the DC current
                                        coils all repel each other. So now the amount of
                                        energy really depends how close the coils are too each
                                        other. In this case the amount of mechanical energy
                                        gained could be trillions of times higher than
                                        E=V*B^2/(2U0). Can you see why? If not then allow me
                                        to explain. Consider the magnetic moment of an
                                        electron in free space. So far we do not know the size
                                        of the electron and as far as we can tell so far it is
                                        a point. So the field increases exponentially as we
                                        approach the electron. Anyhow, if it's a point or not
                                        is moot. The point is that we have a certain amount of
                                        field energy from the electrons magnetic moment. Now,
                                        lets move another electron near our first electron so
                                        their magnetic moments cancel and repel just as in our
                                        DC current coil experiment. In this case we see the
                                        net magnetic field from the two electrons has vastly
                                        decreased because they are canceling a great deal of
                                        each others fields out. So we have lost energy from
                                        the net field, but we just gained PE (Potential
                                        Energy) because it requires energy to force to
                                        magnetic moments facing each other. The close the
                                        magnetic moments are to each other to more they cancel
                                        each other out, which requires more work/energy.

                                        We know that the intrinsic electron spins always have
                                        a magnetic field. When the material is demagnetized
                                        the domains cancel each other out. So the smaller the
                                        domains the more potential energy we have relative to
                                        the entire core being magnetized. We can clearly see
                                        how the amount of potential energy could be magnitudes
                                        higher than just E=V*B^2/(2U0). The domains in the
                                        high-end nanocrystalline and amorphous magnetic
                                        materials is very small. Sure, not as small as
                                        magnetic material that is in Curie temperature. We
                                        know the magnetic moments at Tc are for the most part
                                        randomized. If they are 100% randomized then that
                                        essentially constitutes the smallest domain size as
                                        possible; i.e., the magnetic moments are all repelling
                                        each other at close distances. Such a close proximity
                                        results in a appreciable amount of the electrons
                                        magnetic moments canceling each other out, which
                                        equates to a lot of PE.

                                        The effect of strings as you mention is true, which is caused by a
                                        small displacement (the stretching) equates to a large displacement in
                                        the other dimension (widthwise). This is the same effect as
                                        compressing a gas. The vibrating string applies a pulling force
                                        lengthwise on the string. When you pull and tighten the vibrating
                                        strings it requires a small change lengthwise to result in a large
                                        change in the distance the vibrating string reaches. Essentially you
                                        are compressing the vibrating material, which results in energy. This
                                        theory of magnetic strain on magnetic materials cannot be correct for
                                        many reasons. 1) Magnetostriction can be negative or positive in
                                        magnetic materials. 2) Magnetostriction in most nanocrystalline &
                                        amorphous materials is practically zero. It is so small for Metglas
                                        2714AF that it's listed as <<1 ppm. For Hitachi's Finemet it is listed
                                        as 0 (zero).

                                        Having written dozens of computer simulations I just can't see how
                                        magnetic strain could even remotely enter the picture as change of
                                        entropy when there's no change in size, zero Magnetostriction.

                                        First off you make error in assuming such magnetic materials are in
                                        Curie temperature, which is not true. Of course MCE is max around Tc,
                                        which is what I have been saying since the theory predicts that
                                        because domains decrease in size as temperature increases. I've seen
                                        many MCE graphs of different Finemet materials and they all have
                                        appreciable MCE far below Curie temperature.

                                        It is true that Cp does not have to be linear, but to suggest that Cp
                                        drops by magnitudes from simply magnetizing such a core to 1 T sounds
                                        like science fiction. I have two Metglas cores. A human could be
                                        trained to detect small Cp changes, but not the average person, but
                                        don't you think an average human would be able to detect Cp change
                                        from 450 to nearly zero just by touch? At such low Cp the metal
                                        temperature would almost instantly increase from room temperature to
                                        body temperature from touch. Metal is cold to the touch and remains
                                        cold for an appreciable time while the metal heats up.

                                        No, I firmly believe the NASA employee was telling the truth when he
                                        stated the heat capacity increased in the material he studied.



                                        Also you stated that I was incorrect in that it requires the same
                                        energy to magnetize a core to the same field strength if the
                                        permeability doubles. It is important that people do not hold such an
                                        incorrect idea about magnetic materials as this could easily hinder
                                        and misguide such research.

                                        Therefore it is important that people here know that in private email
                                        you acknowledged your error. Here is a quote on your original *claim* -->
