MEDICAL DEVICE DETECTING PASSIVELY INDUCED RF EMISSIONS FROM SPIN POLARIZED ELECTRONS
Publication/Patent Number: US2021077636A1 Publication Date: 2021-03-18 Application Number: 17/100,084 Filing Date: 2020-11-20 Inventor: Turin, Luca   Assignee: SPINPOLAR LLC   IPC: A61K49/10 Abstract: A novel medical device that utilizes, for diagnosis and other medical uses, the detection of emitted radiofrequency (RF) signals experimentally shown as spontaneously emitted by a non-equilibrium population of spin polarized electrons in chiral media during their relaxation to equilibrium. The emitted RF signals correspond to the Zeeman spin-flip energy of electrons under the influence of a magnetic field (MF), which in the absence of an external MF are too difficult to detect. Using a larger MF shifts the low energy, low frequency RF emission of spin polarized electrons to a higher RF power emission wave characterized by a fixed resonant frequency. The detection of these higher RF power emissions is relatively easy using conventional MF magnet sources and antenna receiver technology.
