When a gravitational wave at microwave frequencies impinges on a thin, type I superconducting film, the radical delocalization of the film's negatively charged Cooper pairs, which is due to the Uncertainty Principle, causes them to undergo non-geodesic motion relative to the geodesic motion of the decohered, positively charged ions in the film's lattice, which is due to the Equivalence Principle. The ensuing charge separation leads to a virtual plasma excitation. This "Heisenberg-Coulomb…

New directions for gravitational wave physics via "Millikan oil drops"*

"Millikan oil drops" are drops of superfluid helium coated with electrons, and levitated in a strong, inhomogeneous magnetic field. When the temperature of the system becomes very low compared to the

We have seen how the conductivity of a metal is limited by collisions, which determine the electron mean free path. After a collision, an electron completely loses all memory of its quantum state as
