FLUED wire

face layer united extrusion design - think through rather than along.
  [vote for,

I was pondering an electric motor and the three fingered right-hand rule and thinking that the rule is stationary. In a motor, the magnet is traveling in an arc the wire is wound in a coil. How often is the perfect right hand rule aligned to push electrons along the wire. There would be vectors changing all over the place.

I was also thinking of life's electron transport chains, atoms of the right properties in the right place.

What if technology, nanospheres, self folding proteins or whatever materials to form a disc a few atoms thick, can give the properties wanted at that section of the wire. Discs stacked one on top of each other would give a wire with super wire abilities.

The FLUED wire could then design electron flow properties of capacitance, resistance, direction, electron density from disc to disc and section to section. There is room for superconducting when the right mix and needed environment of atoms is discovered.

Back to the motor - If the arc rotation takes the electrons off the desired course then necessary properties can be built in to help design a curve the flow. More like river design on teeny weeny scale.

Spider spinnerets are not just for strong cables.

Looks like microstructuring is firmly in the future. [wjt, Jan 15 2015]


       Look up "homopolar" electric-motor designs.
Vernon, Jan 08 2015

       Even in a homopolar motor the electrons are still randomly bumping through the wire. By designing an electron computing conduit, you can make the most efficient, theoretically powerful homopolar motor possible.   

       FLUED is more about wires with smart field abilities rather than a particular motor/generator method.

       ... what ?
FlyingToaster, Jan 11 2015

       Atoms compute electrons as they flow past. A material of made up of one type of atom is not a very dynamic and smart material.
wjt, Jan 11 2015

       so you've invented the transistor?
FlyingToaster, Jan 11 2015

       I have no idea if this idea makes sense or not, but I like the idea of microstructuring conductors, so [+].

       Those electron transistor interactions must be able to be scaled up for generator, motor winding advancements. Something more must come out of all the resources spent on electron data machinery.   

       Admittedly the battery/photovoltaic advancements aren't half bad.

       Transistors are lossy; why power transistors have heat sinks.
FlyingToaster, Jan 13 2015

       What I purely was imagining, was a flow electrons spiraling in wire as they traveled forward in the coil, changing where necessary on bends and radial distance. A beautiful dance between there own magnetic field and the external one that is both powerful, fundamental and mathematically perfect.   

       The problem is, finding a way to design this plausible scene to a world changing physical entity. Like the battery, layered stacks of discs might be the starting block.
wjt, Jan 13 2015

       You want electrons to travel helically along the wire, and to bunch up and spread out as they travel*? What benefit will this give? Also, what does the name mean? I see you expanded the acronym, but that's not much clearer to me.   

       *I don't think this is what you were thinking of, but bunching up and spreading out could be used to make an oscillator. But it would be hard to make one for RF, unless your wire technology also increases the electrons' drift velocity drastically.

       I was trying to design electron flow for the best solution of the circuit and overall use. This is done by making wire sections one atom thick and layering them for the perfect electron geometrical flow from section to section for application needed. The atoms used and the geometric shapes in each layer is quite endless so layering should make it possible for electrons to do anything their ability allows.   

       Could having great holes in sections mean electrons have to drift through some layers to the next, possibly.
wjt, Jun 09 2019

       But what is //the perfect electron geometrical flow from section to section for application needed//? I've never seen anything that suggests that such a concept exists.   

       Tangentially related, did you hear about the discovery that electrons can flow viscously, causing eddies to form, in a sheet of graphene? I saw it on Phys.org a couple of years ago. That's probably the closest current real-world thing I know of. I suppose you could develop that into some sort of device for micro-patterning of magnetic fields. But it's not a wire.
notexactly, Jun 11 2019

       [wjt] I think I get it, and I thought of something similar once but not the same. One thing you may like is carbon nanotubes as wires; these could be decorated with attached groups, intensifying with the actual physical curve of a winding wire at a generator or motor. ==^^==^^==, but of course you FLEUD wire has more going for it.   

       Here's a thought for you, if a proton conductor (nafion polymer) is sheathed with a conductive metal layer, does electricity complement protonicity to do new things? Do the protons follow the other handed rule, and the electrons follow the right hand rule, at one composite wire simultaneously; what does the mathematics of that suggest as to completely new devices? this could be a way of packing more electrical potential, or even electromagnetism into wires.   

       I have never heard of a person making a generator or motor or electromagnet with proton conduction before, but it should be possible.
