Take a ring of some material (in my thinking its likely a construct of some compact gravitational solution, like a Kerr singularity with a >> m).

This ring is rotating a some huge speed, with a frequency of nu_e.

Along comes an incident regular gravitational wave, with the roughly same frequency as the rotation of the structure, nu_w ~ nu_e.

What will happen?

Look at what happens with the ring (which is assumed at least somewhat pliable and soft), is not spinning.

The gravity wave simply interacts with it causing a change in its shape from circular to an ellipse.

Make the ring a spinning entity, – (so that the dots above are rotating) and what happens: The ring becomes an emitter of gravitational radiation – it scatters the incoming waves.

Why – well its easy to imagine that the ring has some properties like tension and stiffness, due to rotation. Then as the ring is turning its shape shifting will turn with the ring, making a new gravitational emitter. In other words the ring gets deformed, rotates to a new position, and then un-deforms – radiating the gravitational energy it has stored.

With systems like this in the normal world, we know that when the frequencies of the spinning object is comparable to the frequency of the incoming radiation, we get resonant tuning – the ring will maximally scatter incoming radiation.

What are the numbers?

Looking at energy radiated, need to start over again, but

Consider Only General Relativity-Every old style, Newtonian theory in modern physics – which is all of them except General Relativity, do not fit well with GR itself. This is curious, as for instance the Dirac equation, the Standard Model, QM, QFT all work well with each other (hence the Standard Model). In an attempt to unify everything else […]

Quantum statistics in Bohmian trajectory gravity-T C Andersen 2019 J. Phys.: Conf. Ser. 1275 012038 – 9th International Workshop DICE2018 : Spacetime – Matter – Quantum Mechanics Abstract. The recent experimental proposals by Bose et al. and Marletto et al. (BMV) outline a way to test for the quantum nature of gravity by measuring gravitationally induced differential phase accumulation over the superposed paths of […]

Gravitation finally meets Quantum Mechanics in experiments-I think that the biggest news in a while in quantum mechanics is newly forming ability of experimenters to do quantum experiments with gravity. A fine example of an experiment already done is Phase Shift in an Atom Interferometer due to Spacetime Curvature across its Wave Function by Asenbaum et al. They conclude: Therefore, the phase shift […]

GR = QM – Susskind & I agree :)-So Leonard Susskind publishes a paper on arXiv Dear Qubitzers, GR=QM Which of course is what I have been saying all along. Of course Susskind’s paper is actually ‘of course’ not about QM emerging from GR, which is what I believe, and have good reason to follow up on. Instead Susskind says: Dear Qubitzers, GR=QM? […]

Rings coalescing-As someone pointed out on reddit, it looks like an inelastic collision. Singularities, de Broglie and emergent quantum mechanics comes to mind for me. The interaction causes a wave to propagate. After a time equal to the period of a wave on the ring, it separates into two. Click to access ACES_2013100819104983.pdf When I saw […]

It Ain’t Necessarily So!: Emergent Quantum Mechanics, How the Classical Laws of Nature Can Conspire to Cause Quantum-Like Behaviour by Theo van Holten The hardcover is out – for example here: Amazon.com or at Springer – but its coming out in paperback soon – Amazon.ca . Its not coming in paperback, so […]
