Great pyramid of Giza’s shape can focus energy through its chambers

Electromagnetic properties of the Great Pyramid.


Shrouded in rumors and legends, the pyramids at Giza, Egypt, are the last remaining of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Though the pyramids are one of the most recognizable symbols of the ancient Egyptian pharaohs, these immense, complex tombs were only built during distinct portions of the ancient Egyptian civilization.

Now, scientists at the ITMO University and the Laser Zentrum Hannover have conducted a new study on the Great Pyramid of Giza. They studied how the Great Pyramid would interact with electromagnetic waves of a proportional or resonant length.

Analyzing deeply, their study suggests that the chambers inside the pyramid can concentrate electromagnetic energy. Under resonance conditions, the pyramid can concentrate electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers and the area under its base. The scientists initially evaluated that resonances in the pyramid can be instigated by radio waves with a length going from 200 to 600 meters. At that point, they made a model of the electromagnetic response of the pyramid and calculated the termination cross segment.

This value helps gauge which part of the incident wave energy resonant can be scattered or consumed by the pyramid under resounding conditions. At long last, for similar conditions, the researchers got the electromagnetic field distribution inside the pyramid.

The Great Pyramid was pulled into the analysts’ consideration while they were examining the collaboration between light and dielectric nanoparticles. The scattering of light by nanoparticles relies upon their size, shape, and refractive record of the source material. Changing these parameters makes it conceivable to decide the reverberation scrambling administrations and utilize them to create gadgets for controlling light at the nanoscale.

Andrey Evlyukhin, DSc, scientific supervisor and coordinator of the research, said, “Egyptian pyramids have always attracted great attention. We as scientists were also interested in them, so we decided to look at the Great Pyramid as a particle resonantly dissipating radio waves.”

“Due to the lack of information about the physical properties of the pyramid, we had to make some assumptions. For example, we assumed that there are no unknown cavities inside, and the building material has the properties of ordinary limestone and is evenly distributed in and out of the pyramid. We obtained interesting results with these assumptions that can have important practical applications.”

Polina Kapitanova, Ph.D., an associate at the Faculty of Physics and Engineering of ITMO University, said, “By choosing a material with suitable electromagnetic properties, we can obtain pyramidal nanoparticles with a potential for practical application in nanosensors and effective solar cells.”

The study is published in the Journal of Applied Physics, 20 July 2018.
