quote”Our results indicate that O2 can be formed by carbon dioxide dissociation in a one step process. The same process can be applied in other carbon dioxide dominated atmospheres such as Mars and Venus,” said UC Davis graduate student Zhou Lu, working with professors in the Departments of Chemistry and of Earth and Planetary Sciences.

Zhou used a vacuum ultraviolet laser to irradiate CO2 in the laboratory. Vacuum ultraviolet light has a wavelength below 200 nanmoeters and is absorbed by air under natural conditions.

This one-step process could be happening right now in the Earth’s atmosphere as carbon dioxide increases in the region of the upper atmosphere where high energy vacuum ultraviolet light from the Sun hits Earth or even other planets.

I was reading todays CBC headlines and saw this article

At the UN climate conference in Paris, premier Brad Wall and SaskPower executives are showcasing their project, located at a coal power plant in the province. The facility missed its target in the first year, but Wall is not deterred. He points out the plant has sequestered carbon equivalent to taking 100,000 cars off the road, a figure that should grow to 250,000 when the plant is fully operational.

so I searched for changing carbon dioxide to oxygen.

we have a team of scientists that KNOW how to do it, with test results data for you to see just how much this plan would work, so you still use the storage facilities, but ADD another component. A laser beam factory (make it portable) and you build a room to zap it and capture it as oxygen!

But then, researchers at the University of California, Davis decided to try doing just that by exciting carbon dioxide using what’s known as a “high energy vacuum ultraviolet laser.”

It turns out that, in a highly excited (and still anthropomorphized) state, carbon dioxide and other molecules have a bit more energy to skip that minimum energy path and, like any agitated person/molecule, feel like “roaming,” which is a chemical phenomenon in which chemical bonds will break in other ways.

The UC Davis researchers found that the chemical bonds did indeed break in other ways, and were able to turn carbon dioxide back into oxygen and a single carbon atom (they also describe the discovery in Science).

then I look to see if we’ve developed this technology, they are working on it, but it looks like someone’s got something to work with…

Abstract
The design and performance of the first vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) laser-based angle-resolved photoemission (ARPES) system are described. The VUV laser with a photon energy of 6.994 eV and bandwidth of 0.26 meV is achieved from the second harmonic generation using a novel nonlinear optical crystal KBe2BO3F2. The new VUV laser-based ARPES system exhibits superior performance, including superhigh energy resolution better than 1 meV, high momentum resolution, superhigh photon flux, and much enhanced bulk sensitivity, which are demonstrated from measurements on a typical Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 high temperature superconductor. Issues and further development related to the VUV laser-based photoemission technique are discussed.

maybe you can adapt this technology for the laser beam gun

here’s a way to intensify the protons

Hong-Ou-Mandel effect

Subtitles available in Chinese, Dutch, English, German, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian.

An animation explaining how two indistinguishable single photons that simultaneously enter a beam splitter will always leave together. We are developing miniaturised semiconductor structures like the one shown in the animation to demonstrate the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect. Our overall goal is to interface static qubits (exciton or spin states in quantum dots) with flying qubits (photons), in order to demonstrate the key components of quantum networks.
