Russian scientists have developed a generator that is being called a genuine scientific breakthrough, and it is already clear that the defense industry will not be the only field where the new super device is going to be used.
"The device is generating such power – billions of watts – but takes up a very small area that it could be mounted on a vehicle. This appliance has a very short impulse, which makes it possible to be a very compact device,” the Director of Lebedev’s Institute of Physics, Vice President of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Gennady Mesyats said.
Mikhail Yalandin, one of the creators of the miraculous machine, said that the scientists had assembled two of such devices in Yekaterinburg – a bigger and a smaller one.
Never before had a relatively small device ever been able to generate electromagnetic impulses the capacity of which could be comparable to a huge water power plant. It is ten times as much as anything that has been manufactured to date.
The new device can be used practically anywhere. The invention will let specialists create radar telescopes and radars of new generation. The new generators can also be used to check the stability of large energy objects and systems. The device is capable of imitating the strays which appear as a result of a lightning strike or even a nuclear blast.
It is impossible to take photographs or film a video of the new generator in action because it immediately puts all electronic devices out of order.
The research that was used for the creation of such a device can also be applied in the development of electromagnetic weapons.
“No one has ever studied biological effects of such impulses. It is obvious that it affects the electronic equipment near it. Computers or cell phones have to be screened from such radiation,” Mikhail Yalandin, a senior specialist of the Institute of Electrophysics said.
