Dr. Pierre-Marie Robitaille - Kirchhoff’s Claims

Dr. Pierre-Marie Robitaille - Kirchhoff’s Claims

Over the past 15 years, Dr. Pierre-Marie Robitaille has raised considerable doubt relative to Kirchhoff’s formulation of his Law of Thermal Emission. In this regard, the equivalence between emitted and absorbed radiation under conditions of thermal equilibrium, properly known as Stewart’s law, has not been questioned.

However, the German scientist’s claim that the radiation within an arbitrary cavity will always be independent of the nature of the walls, while subject only to the temperature and the frequency of observation, has never been demonstrated experimentally and is unsupported by mathematical derivation.

Regrettably, even the proof of Kirchhoff’s law advanced by Max Planck has been found to be physically unsound in a paper jointly authored with Steven Crothers (Robitaille PM and Crother SJ. “The Theory of Heat Radiation” Revisited: A Commentary on the Validity of Kirchhoff’s Law of Thermal Emission and Max Planck’s Claim of Universality. Prog. Phys. 2015, 11(2), 120-132) .

Since mathematics is the language of physics, this is a serious problem for all those who adhere to the validity of Kirchhoff’s claims.

In this talk, laboratory and mathematical arguments will be presented which highlight that Kirchhoff’s Law of Thermal Emission should never have been accepted by the physics community. The radiation contained within an arbitrary cavity is simply not black and the production of such radiation has always required the presence of strong absorbers in the frequency range of interest.

Pierre-Marie Robitaille PhD, initially trained as a spectroscopist and has wide ranging knowledge of instrumentation in the radio and microwave bands. A recognized expert in image acquisition and analysis, he was responsible for doubling the world record in Magnetic Resonance Imaging in 1998. In 2000, he turned his attention to thermodynamics and astrophysics, demonstrating that the universality advanced in Kirchhoff’s Law of Thermal Emission was invalid.

He has published extensively on the microwave background, highlighting that this signal arises from water on the Earth and has no relationship to cosmology. In this regard, he has highlighted the importance of the hydrogen bond within water as the oscillator responsible for the monopole signal of the microwave background. Most importantly, Dr. Robitaille has published numerous works on the Liquid Metallic Hydrogen Solar Model (LMHSM) and has been a strong proponent of the idea that the Sun is comprised of condensed matter.

Thank you very much Dr. Robitaille
You are true scientist and wonderful human being
