According to new theoretical research conducted by an international team of physicists, the chambers in the Great Pyramid of Giza can harness electromagnetic energy. The architects of the pyramids were likely unaware of this feature, however, its implications are important for future nanoparticle research.
“Applications of modern physical methods and approaches for investigations of pyramids’ properties are important and productive,” the researchers wrote in their paper. “It could allow [us] to make new discoveries or get new information motivating new interests [in] the pyramids.”
“Electromagnetic energy is very important in everyday life, and we actually use and experience different kinds of electromagnetic energy every day,” Antonija Grubisic-Cabo, a physicist from Monash University who was not involved in the research, explains to ScienceAlert. “For example, sunlight is one form of electromagnetic waves, but also things commonly used in our homes, such as microwaves and radios rely on the electromagnetic energy.”
Electromagnetic radiation energy, including visible light, radio, waves, and microwaves, is radiating waves of oscillating electric and magnetic fields. It is literally around all of all the time. In fact, your whole house is filled with electromagnetic radiation.
To test how the pyramids acted with these waves, researchers first estimated how resonances (sound prolonged by reflection or vibrations) caused by radio waves might be induced. “We had to use some assumptions,” says Andrey Evlyukhin, senior researcher from ITMO University in Russia.”For example, we assumed that there are no unknown cavities inside, and the building material with the properties of an ordinary limestone is evenly distributed in and out of the pyramid.”
Then they made a model of the pyramid and its electromagnetic response. By calculating something called the extinction cross section, the team were able to estimate how the wave energy is scattered or absorbed by the pyramid.
Using a special type of analysis called a multipole analysis the researchers found that the scattered fields were concentrating in the pyramid’s internal chambers as well as under its base. –Science Alert
Although this research seems unconventional, modern physical approaches have been previously used to study the Great Pyramid, and led to a discovery of a completely new structure,” said Grubisic-Cabo. “As this research is completely theoretical, it is difficult to say what we can expect it to lead to, or if it is even possible to do this in real life.”
