The Great Pyramid of Giza is steeped in history and mythology, with such fascinates researchers from various fields who all want to unravel its many secrets, according to News Week news website.
Now, an international team of physicists has found that – under the right scientific conditions – the Great Pyramid can concentrate electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers and under its base.
The results, which are published in the Journal of Applied Physics, could help scientists to create new nano-particles—particles between 1 and 100 nano-meters in size—that could be used; for example, to develop highly efficient solar cells or tiny sensors.
The team from ITMO University in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and the Laser Zentrum in Hannover, Germany, applied theoretical physics methods to investigate how the Great Pyramid responded to electromagnetic radiation—which includes radio waves, microwaves and infrared, visible light, ultraviolet light, X-rays and gamma rays.
Specifically, they wanted to see how radio waves with a proportional wavelength—or resonant length—to the pyramid would interact with the structure.
They calculated that wavelengths between 200 and 600 meters (656 to 1،968 feet) would induce resonance in the pyramid. Then, using computer modeling, they worked out how the radio wave energy would be scattered or absorbed in this “resonant” condition.
They found that the structure would likely concentrate electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers and under its base.
Due to the lack of information about the physical properties of the pyramid, the researchers had to use some assumptions when making calculations so more news about the new discovery is still expected.
