MINIATURE DETECTOR FOR "PSI FIELDS"
One of their subjects was able to produce a scattering maximum at
was about one hundred times larger than that of normal water, as if the
water's crystalline microstructure was forced to exist only across small
range of sizes. Other subjects produced effects up to a couple of s.d.
away from the untreated water baseline, demonstrating that the results are
not swamped by noise. One subject produced scattering distortions lasting
hours, after just a 40 second "treatment," while others only lasted during
the time an "effort" was being made. 15 people were tested, and about 1/4
could produce an evident effect. By displaying the graph as operator
feedback, subjects could be trained to improve their skill at obtaining
My idea depicted in the above diagram is only a suggestion and has
NOT been tested. A Photomultiplier
was used by the original investigators, but if
the CCD is sensitive enough, or laser wattage sufficiently high, it should
serve. The orientation of the
camera and laser beam is important, since the relative angle determines
which part of the scattering curve will be displayed. A simple lens of
very short focal length placed very close to the CCD may be necessary in
order to plot a wide distribution of scattering angles. The original
experiment recorded angles between about 30 and 160 degrees, with
interesting results at several different angles. Distilled water or even
tap water is said to work.
I've not tried building this device, so it's open to experimentation to
find out if it will actually produce any of the results claimed in the JSE
article. A quick test shows that a red .5mW diode laser gives scattering
which is nearly too low for dark-adapted human eyes, much less for that of
a video camera. Try 480 or 400nM 10mW laser instead!
Another idea: if a suitable wide-angle eyepiece was held very close to a
laser beam in a water cell, the lens would allow direct viewing of the
angular scattering distribution. Peaks in the curve would be seen as
bright vertical stripes in a broad fuzzy band. With a bright enough
laser, perhaps realtime changes in water's structure would be directly
visible, no electronics required.

Some words relatively your's " PSI FIELDS DETECTOR ". I think, that this
design will to work, but within the limits of 10-30 degrees, where the
intensity of dispersed light is high. It is necessary to replace a mirror
by full absorber of light and to accept measures against of internal
re-reflected dispersed light. If to speak about portable installation,
instead of CCD Camera, it is better to use an ordinary avalanche
photodiode, having arranged it on a constant corner within the limits of
10-30 degrees. Thus there will be problems of maintenance of temperature
stability of light emitter and absorber. For increase of a water
sensitivity, it is possible to "energize" it, if to keep it some minutes
in hands and to make some rotary movements and easy to shake up it. The
best results are received with a "SUPER Q" water, but it is possible to
use ordinary water ,cleared with the help of a home filter.
After "energizing" the water preserves increased sensitivity some days. The mechanisn of this it is not clear to the end, will be more than likely formed long-time lives vortexes structures, exchanged by energy with one another and with an environment. A floor level of sensitivity for beginnings of vortex formation, on all visibility, does not exist. Therefore such way is very sensitive but arises the problem how to separate a useful signal from a background.
