A Novel Technology of Electric Propulsion

Authors: Xiaodong Liu, Yu Liang, Qichang Liang

We proposed a new technology that generates propulsion force via electromagnetic interaction between a toroidal solenoid and a parallel plate capacitor. It is shown that the charge on the capacitor experience none-zero Coulomb force in the electric field induced by the alternating current in the solenoid, while the capacitor exert zero force to the solenoid. This technology can be used as electric propulsion in aerospace engineering.
