Abstract

An electromagnetic thruster (EMT) is proposed and tested with success. Its design is inspired by theoretical considerations whose predictions well match with the experimental findings. The efficiency is superior to any other device so far reported in literature, producing a directional thrust of approximately 2.7 x 10^{-5}M Newtons/Kg, where M denotes the mass of the thruster itself, with an injected power of approximately 10 Watts. The prototype has the shape of a ring and is supplied with both radio-frequency signals and a stationary high voltage. Improvements and generalizations can be easily devised by adjusting the geometry of the device.
