One of the most famous films about time travel Back to the future last but not least remembered for a hell of a stylish car brand DeLorean. The main item through which it is possible to make the time jump, was the flux capacitor (Flux Capacitor). And he would have remained a mere fantasy writers Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis, if a group of scientists from Austria and Switzerland has not created a real flux capacitor, the use of which for the displacements in time is open to question, but it is useful for something else.
New device can control the movement of prisoners in it of microwave signals. Moreover, scientists have developed not one, but two variants of building a flux capacitor: two-band and three-band. It is the latter and resembles the invention of Dr. Emmett brown.
The three-band scheme for the flux capacitor
The device uses the effect of quantum tunneling of magnetic flux around a capacitor, thereby breaking the principle of symmetry in relation to the treatment time (time-reversal symmetry). But since we are talking about time, we should not rejoice to think that we are close to creating a time machine. In a simplified form this means that the microwave signals just starts moving in one particular direction. According to one of the authors of the development, Tom States,
“Our device will be very useful for implementation of quantum computing. For this you will need high precision control of signal propagation. Moreover, this technology can be used in radar systems, wireless data transmission, to improve signal quality and speed of mobile connection, Internet and so forth.”
