Hold everything. I am wrong again. On p. 3 it says:
"Some examples of the results obtained with this system (method A) in
brief periods (1-1,5 hours) are reported in lines 1-3 of the Table 1."
So, for the first experiment, 0.2 kWh over 1 to 1.5 hours is
somewhere between 133 to 200 W. So what the heck is going on in the
Frankly, this is annoying. Why "1 - 1.5 hours" anyway? Which is
it? 1 or 1.5? Why not specify for each row? Why not report average power?
Does anyone here see anything about input power other than heater
power? The patent mentions a "Laser beam temperature measuring
device: Raytheon, USA" but I see nothing about about laser or heat stimulation.
I have read through this paper and patent several times. I find them
poorly organized and inscrutable. Plus, it is not good form to mix in
theoretical speculation with a description of the experiment or a
patent's description of the device.
