We are so glad that the main stream scientists and engineering professionals are also researching zero-point energy. In their paper: “Extraction of Zero-Point Energy from the Vacuum: Assessment of Stochastic Electrodynamics-Based Approach as Compared to Other Methods,” Garret Moddel and Olga Dmitriyeva from University of Colorado, Boulder presented their research on the possibility of extracting zero-point energy from the vacuum.
In the paper, it analyzes various methods suggested for harnessing zero-point energy from the vacuum. None of these methods have been consistently demonstrated best results, and they have not faced substantial scrutiny. The paper discusses the thermodynamic principles related to zero-point energy extraction, categorizing proposed methods into three classes: nonlinear processing of the zero-point field, mechanical extraction using Casimir cavities, and the pumping of atoms through Casimir cavities. The first two methods are found to violate thermodynamic principles and appear unfeasible, while the third, based on stochastic electrodynamics, shows promise but has yet to overcome certain challenges, with initial experimental results being inconclusive due to lower-than-expected power output.
