Hidden Variable Theory Supports Variability in Decay Rates of Nuclides

  title={Hidden Variable Theory Supports Variability in Decay Rates of Nuclides},
  author={Dirk J Pons and Arion Pons and Aiden J. Pons},
  journal={Applied Physics research},
PROBLEM- The orthodox expectation is for decay rates to be strictly constant for all types of decay (β+, β-, EC, α). However empirical results show strong evidence for nuclides having variable decay rates, typically evident as periodicity. The volume of data available suggests this is a real phenomenon, not merely a spurious outcome of measurement errors. However the problem is complex because the data are conflicted for different decays. Consequently it is a significant challenge to explain…

Anomalies in Radioactive Decay Rates: A Bibliography of Measurements and Theory.

Knowledge of the decay rates (or half-lives) of radioisotopes is critical in many fields, including medicine, archeology, and nuclear physics, to name just a few. Central to the many uses of

On decay constants and orbital distance to the Sun—part II: beta minus decay

Claims that proximity to the Sun causes variations of decay constants at the permille level have been investigated for beta-minus decaying nuclides. Repeated activity measurements of 3H, 14C, 60Co,

On decay constants and orbital distance to the Sun—part III: beta plus and electron capture decay

The hypothesis that seasonal changes in proximity to the Sun cause variation of decay constants at permille level has been tested for radionuclides disintegrating through electron capture and beta

Energy Conversion Mechanics for Photon Emission per Non-Local Hidden-Variable Theory

Problem-Energy conversion processes in optical phenomena are incompletely explained by wave theory or quantum mechanics. There is a need for ontologically rich explanations at the level of individual

Fluctuations in measured radioactive decay rates inside a modified Faraday cage: Correlations with space weather

An in-depth analysis of the radioactive decay measurement with regard to possible correlations with space weather revealed that the decay and capacitance time-series are statistically significantly correlated with GMA and CRA when specific conditions are met.

A Physical Basis for Entanglement in a Non-Local Hidden Variable Theory

Problem: Superposition and entanglement are coherent effects, which can be quantified by quantum mechanics (QM), but lack descriptive explanations. They are typically analysed with inequality

Speed of Light as an Emergent Property of the Fabric

Problem - The theory of Relativity is premised on the constancy of the speed of light (c) in-vacuo. While no empirical evidence convincingly shows the speed to be variable, nonetheless from a

Deeper mechanisms for force and the fundamental interactions from a NLHV perspective

Problem: The mechanisms whereby force operates are poorly understood at the fundamental level. This is reflected in the difficulty of finding a single coherent theory for explaining all the

A Physical Explanation for Particle Spin

CONTEXT The spin of a particle is physically manifest in multiple phenomena. For quantum mechanics (QM), spin is an intrinsic property of a point particle, but an ontological explanation is lacking.



Asymmetrical Neutrino Induced Decay of Nucleons

Problem- The operation of neutrino detectors shows that nuclide decay rates can be affected by loading of neutrino species. However the underlying principles of this are poorly understood. Purpose-

Time-Dependent Nuclear Decay Parameters: New Evidence for New Forces?

This paper presents an overview of recent research dealing with the question of whether nuclear decay rates (or half-lives) are time-independent constants of nature, as opposed to being parameters
