Etienne Brauns, On the concept and potential applications of a photons based device, measuring the velocity vector of an object, moving at high speed in space, Results in Optics 10 (2023) 100349,

In my series of three interlinked Elsevier publications I extensively used the Elsevier Mendeley Data Repository (I call it EMDR) facility to implement dynamic figures and mp4 files in those Elsevier publications. EMDR allows to create Datasets containing such files. These Datafiles are coded through a URL by Elsevier Mendeley and thus show open access at the internet. Details about my Datasets and the corresponding files, used in my three Elsevier publications can be found in


The specific case of a photon source, moving at a high velocity v in space in the direction x, while emitting photons in the perfect perpendicular direction y, was considered in [1]. The findings in [1] resulted in the irrefutable Fig. 12 in [1], demonstrating the existence of a photon location-of arrival shift effect MF, as a result of the velocity v. The, in [1] predicted, MF effect was proven experimentally in [2]. Fig. 12 in [1] is thus falsifying the view by contemporary science, that M is the photon’s location of arrival, for whatever value of v. The amplitude of MF is in fact dependent from the photon source’s velocity v. It is thus feasible to measure MF and then calculate v. Such innovative velocity measurement concept, based on photons, should be introduced urgently in a broad R&D project, involving the collaboration of experts in multiple fields. A MF shift based, one directional velocity measuring device, needs to be realized first. Thereafter a three-dimensional (x,y,z) configuration can be considered, of three of such “one-directional” based velocity measuring devices, by mounting those perpendicular to one another. When attaching such three dimensional measurement configuration to a material object (being in motion at high speed in space), such configuration will allow to measure the scalar values, of each of the three perpendicular velocity vector components of that object (total velocity vector and its direction of motion). There are multiple important potential applications in space (high velocity objects) and on our planet.
