Title
(EN) ENERGY STORAGE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE STOCKAGE D'ENERGIE
Abstract
(EN)
Electrons are arranged so they circulate along a spiral path in a vacuum. The path has a hollow symmetrical shape which is defined by a surface of a toroid. The shape is controllable by a magnetic field and the electrons can be contained within the shape. A containing force can be created by external electromagnetic fields, ions within the vacuum, or by interactions between the orbiting electrons themselves. The contained electrons store energy for later retrieval.
(FR)
On peut faire en sorte que des électrons circulent sur une trajectoire en spirale dans un vide. La trajectoire a une forme symétrique creuse qui est définie par la surface d'un toroïde. La forme peut être ajustée par un champ magnétique et les électrons peuvent être retenus dans la forme. Une force de retenue peut être créée par des champs électromagnétiques externes, par des ions dans le vide ou par des interactions entre les électrons en orbite eux-mêmes. L'énergie emmagasinée des électrons est disponible pour une utilisation ultérieure.
