My research relates to the application of ideas from quantum electrodynamics theory upon common electrical systems. A basic question is: which role do virtual particles and broken symmetries play in conventional circuits and work processes? Using the virtual particle perspective we may see conventional electrical systems right from the beginning as quantum open systems. If that is the case we can ask, why common electrical systems behave like quantum closed systems? The reason is a self-symmetrizing behavior, which exists within all conventional energy conversion processes. Going from there I developed the concept of the "asymmetric electric systems". These systems are not only quantum open systems but they also behave like quantum open systems.
In my book "Virtual particles in electromagnetism" I assume that the exchange between a virtual particle and an observable particle creates time on the observable particle. The outcome is a purely time-based theory of electromagnetism. This theory allows for systems that use the quantum vacuum as an additional and external source of energy. Meaning... burning time as energy.
