Hi all, I'm developing a new kind of solar turbine concept.  Uses ORC
concepts (Organic Rankine Cycle) but with a few new twists.  Looking
for collaborators, people with expertise in Tesla turbines, design-for-
manufacturing, and prototype-building/machining welcome.

Am writing the patent application as we speak.  Oh BTW I believe that
my device can work as a hybrid with crystalline photovoltaics, since
the longer IR from the sun would tend to pass through the solar cells.

Sincerely,
=kris

You might want to hold off on bringing collaborators on board until
your patent has been granted. Of course, once the patent has been
granted you'll have access to venture capital and you won't really
need volunteers.

Also BTW, there isn't anything quite so convincing as a working
demonstration unit. Sadly, a lot of world-class inspirations never
quite make it that far. Anything said before that point is just words.

Good luck with your invention.

   I see that there are relatively recent tesla turbine patents, circa
2002. I've never seen a working tesla turbine, but would love to see one
in operation. I would think with modern metals and the fact you are
working at such low temperatures you could get a machine shop to cut out
the disks for you.

   What I don't know is that with the low carnot efficiencies you'll be
dealing with and the low amount of energy in the long wave IR region
whether you'll have enough power to be concerned with.

   Good luck!
