Researchers from ITMO University in St. Petersburg, Russia, have discovered some intriguing properties about the Great Pyramid of Giza. The structure can concentrate electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers and under its base. The findings have potential implications for creating new nanoparticles to develop highly efficient solar cells.
The Great Pyramid makes electric waves
The findings were published recently in the Journal of Applied Physics. Nanoparticles include particles between 1 and 100 nanometers. They can be applied to tiny sensors or solar cells.
The researchers from the Laser Zentrum in Hannover, Germany, applied theoretical physics to discover how the Great Pyramid responded to electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation includes a range of frequencies including microwaves, visible light, gamma rays, radio waves, x-rays, and ultraviolet light.
Nano-optics and pyramids
Scientists used computer modeling to determine how radio wave energy scattered and absorbed throughout the pyramid. They used wavelengths between 656 and 1,968 feet long. The structure scattered and absorbed energy at higher rates at these wavelengths.
The Great Pyramid focuses electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers and at its base. Andrey Evlyukhin, one of the authors of the study, says that they “expected the investigation of the pyramid’s properties could provide us with new and important information which will be useful in nano-optics for the design of nanoparticles with required optical properties.”
Banking calculations on limited information
The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the most widely studied structures in history. At 479 feet, it was the tallest building in the world until the turn of the 19th Century. The Pharaoh Khufu finished its construction around 2560 BC. Not much is known about the internal structure of the pyramid.
Researchers based calculations on the assumption that the inside of the pyramid is relatively solid, made of ordinary limestone that’s distributed evenly throughout the structure. Not much is known about the internal structure of the pyramid. Egyptologists assume that the builders of the pyramid likely didn’t have any idea about the electromagnetic properties of the structure. UFO researchers claim that the findings are evidence of extraterrestrial design.
