Dr. Robert Baker, Jr, takes us on a guided tour of the world of High-Frequency Gravitational Waves, and describes for us what this phenomenon is, how it works, and what differentiates it from lower-frequency research at facilities such as LIGO. High-Frequency Gravitational Waves (HFGW) are ripples in fabric of space-time at frequencies greater than 100khz that offer promising new potential for a variety of communications and propulsion technologies. This 14-page update for 2007 provides a comprehensive list of 198 scientific references supporting HFGW research.
The successful generation High-Frequency Gravitational Waves could be even more important than Marconi’s development of the Radio Telegraph, and would almost guarantee a Nobel Prize for whoever accomplishes the first experiment. For instance, HFGW facilitates a new type of wireless communications for both broadcast and multicast transmission through all material things – the ultimate wireless system. This would enable HFGW transmissions to propogate directly through the Earth from New York to Beijing, China without the need for fiber optic cables, microwave relays, or satellite transponders, without the need for antennas, cables, or phone lines.
