UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Anew study showed that the Great Pyramid in Giza is able to focus electromagnetic radiation in energy pockets within the network of internal chambers and under its base.
Theoretical studies conducted by a group of Russian scientists to recreate its shape at the nanoscale are aimed at understanding how the pyramid will respond to radio waves directed at it.
Far from revealing or using any mystical properties of the ancient structure, scientists hope to use the results of their research in the technological field, for example, when creating effective solar panels.
Speculation on the alleged function of the Egyptian pyramids has been common since at least the beginning of the 20th century. These structures were connected with everything in a row, starting from aliens and ending with the Apocalypse.
The oldest and largest of the Giza pyramids – the Great Pyramid, built for the pharaoh Khufu thousands of years ago – gave rise to a number of wildest theories in the imagination of people.
In their work, scientists acknowledge that “these amazing structures excite the imagination of people, giving rise to all kinds of fables and unfounded assumptions.”
Therefore, as they themselves explain, it is all the more important for scientists to use modern methods to study the real mysteries of the pyramids.
They used various mathematical models to understand how light interacts with a hypothetical nanoparticle in the form of an ancient wonder of the world.
“The Egyptian pyramids have always attracted a lot of attention,” says one of the authors of the study, Andrey Evlyukhin, a doctor of physical and mathematical sciences from ITMO University.
“We, as scientists, were also interested in them, so we decided to consider the Great Pyramid as a particle resonantly scattering radio waves.”
Their study was published in the Journal of Apple Physics.
First, scientists calculated that using radio waves from 200 to 600 meters long, the so-called “resonant” state can be achieved in the pyramid, that is, electromagnetic energy will be concentrated inside and under the structure.
“Due to the lack of information about the physical properties of the pyramid, we had to use all kinds of assumptions,” says Yevlyukhin.
“For example, we assumed that there are no unknown voids inside, and building material with the properties of ordinary limestone is evenly distributed inside and outside the pyramid. With these assumptions, we have obtained interesting results that may find important practical application.”
The team’s interest in the Great Pyramid arose for the first time during the study of the interaction of light and some nanoparticles.
Light can be controlled at the nanoscale by changing the size, shape and refractive index of the starting materials of the nanoparticles.
Scientists want to find out if nanoparticles like the Great Pyramid can interact with light in the same way that it interacts with radio waves, concentrating their energy in certain areas.
“By choosing a material with suitable electromagnetic properties, we can obtain pyramidal nanoparticles with the prospect of practical applications in nanosensors and efficient solar cells,” says another physicist at ITMO University, Ph.D. Polina Kapitanova.
This is not the first case of a “collision” of the worlds of physics and the study of pyramids.
An article published in 2017 in the journal Nature tells how scientists, using methods of particle physics, discovered a new chamber inside the Great Pyramid – the first one dating back to the 19th century.
