It is proposed that human comfort could be provided in otherwise chilly surroundings by filling the occupied space with electromagnetic energy of centimeter wavelength. Very considerable reductions in the consumption of energy required for the heating of buildings should result from the lowering of interior temperatures thereby permitted.
The magnetic moments of nuclei in normal matter will result in a nuclear paramagnetic polarization upon establishment of equilibrium in a constant magnetic field. It is shown that a radiofrequency field at right angles to the constant field causes a forced precession of the total polarization around the constant field with decreasing latitude as the Larmor(More)
Electrons have been scattered inelastically from a hydrocarbon target containing protons polarized normal to the scattering plane. Scattered electrons with energies corresponding to the production of the A(1236), N(1512), and N(1688) pion-nucleon resonances were observed. A search was made for changes in the cross section as the target polarization was(More)
Electrons have been scattered inelastically from an alcohol-water target containing protons polarized normal to the scattering plane. Scattered-electron energies corresponding to the excitation of the 1236-, 1512-, and 1688-MeV nucleon resonances were observed at four-momentum transfers between 0.2 and 0.7 ( B ~ V / C ) ~ . A search was made for changes in(More)
