Barker experiment: 40KV causes alpha emitter to (slowly) lose its radioactivity
This paper describes a method for treating a small radioactive mineral
sample so as to make it lose its radioactivity. Mainstream science would
predict that such a thing is not possible, since it involves changing the
half life of radioactive atoms, and the half-life is thought to be
This paper is for your information only. The process described involves
dangerous high voltages and radioactive substances. It should only be
performed by persons skilled in safe handling of both of these.

Paraphrased by Braider to describe actual experimental proceedure
conducted from Nov 20 1994 to present [Jan 20 1996]
1) a small mildly radioactive mineral specimen was used. It is
described as a type of periclase and is possibly radium or strontium
isotope substituted. Activity to hand held counter is described as
similar to a pop corn popper. Fairly rapid counts but not extreme.
2) a Van de Graff generator was modified as follows:
a) Belt was removed.
b) 1/2 inch hole was cut in sphere, about half way up the side.
hole was de burred.
c) A small stage was built in the sphere out of wood and
carboard so that the top of the platform, or stage, was even with the
bottom of the hole in the side of the sphere.
d) periclase sample has wrapped in plastic and cloth and struck
with the obligatory open end wrench in the best style and conformance
with Cavendish lab ethic.
e) app. 2 mm by 2 mm by 0.7 mm "chip" was folded into small
piece of 2 mil polyethylene film and secured with standard spring type
wooden clothes pin.
f) hand held counter was rigged with rubber band and nut to hold
down the press to run spring loaded momentary contact switch so as to be
able to run counted continuously.
g) nine volt battery clip was used to connect the counter to
bench supply and lead wired were run down Van de Graff tube with counter
in sphere next to sample so as to get nice "popcorn" count.
h) silicone rubber insulated high voltage wire was also run from
contact point INSIDE of sphere, through the plastic tube that used to
house the belt to the negative side of a 40 Kilo Volt Glassman rack
mount high voltage power supply. The positive side of the supply was
conveyed by silicone rubber insulated HV cable to a 2" sphere mounted on
horizontal glass rod about 2" from hole on outside of sphere.
i) sample is JUST INSIDE of the hole.
j) no arcing occurs ... it is not supposed to .... just strong
field gradient from inside sphere [zero volts] to outside sphere [40 KV]..
over the space of the wall thickness of the sphere ... which is about
20 gauge spun aluminum.
k) field was applied for 14 hours and then there WAS NO FURTHER
APPLCATION OF FIELD ... ever ... at all. None. Just the 14 hours.
l) counts are now down to about background level.

Barker's patent. This will make everything clear as to mechanical and
electrical set up of experiment. The theory and math are in the patent too.
This is NOT posted to start some long winded, or short winded
huffing match .... or to argue. Do the experiment and THEN report
results as you have recorded them. This take at least a year for
reuslts to manifest ....so it is kind of like breeding cows.
Suggestion: Have a mineral speciment known to have some type of
alpha emission radio dated by a GOOD geo radio dating lab .... have them
wark the sample ... photograph it ... saw it in half .... have it marked,
dated and photographed again ... so that EVERYONE is very clear there can
be no mistake.
Expose to 50 KV for 12 to 14 hours. Wait one year. Have it
dated again. This is a quick and easy thing to .... you could probably
run up 10 or 20 if you wanted.
