What is the bifilar coil used for?

Scalar waves

Scalar waves (also Scalar wave) are hypothetical, electromagnetic waves, which differ from conventional electromagnetic waves by an oscillation plane parallel to the direction of propagation and which are said to have fantastic properties.


Scalar waves are said to be features of Longitudinal waves to have. Longitudinal waves are known from sound, for example: the air molecules oscillate back and forth in the direction of propagation of the sound (and not across it). Electromagnetic waves are against it Transverse waves. With electromagnetic waves, although no particles oscillate, the electric and magnetic field strengths do. These are both oriented perpendicular to the direction of propagation (and perpendicular to each other).

The claimed properties of scalar waves have never been observed in electromagnetic waves and are all in contradiction to physics:

  • They cannot be shielded by a Faraday cage.
  • The speed of propagation is higher than the speed of light.
  • The decrease in field strength with the distance r from the radiation source is smaller than with conventional transverse waves, in which the electric and magnetic field strength in the far field (i.e. at least a few wavelengths away from the source) decrease with 1 / r.
  • When energy is transmitted with scalar waves, there is an "overunity effect", i.e. more energy can be received than the transmitter emits, which is related to the existence of space energy.

Science considers the construct of scalar waves to be flawed because, based on Maxwell's equations, the electric and magnetic field vectors are always perpendicular to the energy transport vector of the wave. Representative is the mathematician Gerhard Bruhn from Darmstadt, who proved the well-known angelic wave supporter Konstantin Meyl sloppiness when deriving the scalar waves from Maxwell's equations.[1][2] The investigation of Meyl's scalar wave experiment kit also gave no indications of the validity of his hypotheses. The observed effects could easily be explained with the well-known laws of high frequency technology.[3][4] This is especially true for the alleged energy transmission with scalar waves including the "overunity effect".

Generation and reception of scalar waves

For example, a current-carrying bifilar coil is suitable for generating scalar waves, i.e. a coil whose wire is wound both clockwise and in the opposite direction with the same number of turns. Such an arrangement generates practically no magnetic field and therefore does not emit anything according to the laws of electrical engineering. However, scalar waves would be emitted. Most of these coils are flat coils, for example in the form of printed circuit boards, or very short cylinder coils. The opposite winding is sometimes achieved by twisting a conductor loop with two turns in the manner of a Möbius strip. Such a scalar wave coil is called a Möbius loop or Möbius coil.

Similar structures are useful as receiving antennas, whereby the effect can be improved by a static magnetic field, e.g. by permanent magnets attached to the antenna. Conventional antennas for electromagnetic waves are also suitable for reception, but for this they would have to be in a shielding (Faraday) cage. A reception of the allegedly generated scalar waves could never be proven by the advocates of the scalar wave hypothesis. It is also physically nonsensical that scalar waves should penetrate metal and other matter unhindered, i.e. without interaction, and on the other hand, as many pseudo-medical experts claim, there is a positive (or, as an alleged side effect of mobile communications, also harmful) effect on the human body.


The idea of ​​scalar waves is propagated in Germany by Konstantin Meyl, who also sells corresponding products commercially, for example experiment sets [5]. Another representative is the Radolfzell psychologist Angelika Schrodt, cell phone opponent and managing director of INDEL GmbH, which offers scalar wave products. The biochemist Karin Lenger claims to be able to prove the effectiveness of homeopathy with the help of scalar waves.

Outside Germany, former US military man Tom Bearden is one of the better-known proponents of the scalar wave hypothesis [6]. Bearden is of the opinion, among other things, that radiation weapons can be built on the basis of scalar waves.

Application in pseudomedicine

ETZS scalar wave therapy

A variety of devices that are claimed to work with scalar waves are available in the alternative medicine market. Evidence that would speak for the effectiveness of the assumed scalar waves is not given. Usually it is not even said why scalar waves should be necessary or at least useful for the diagnostic and treatment methods offered (typical example: the REBA test device). In some devices, the above-mentioned scalar wave antennas made of coils wound in opposite directions play a role. One example is the SkaSys system. Other products that are advertised with references to scalar waves are the Siowell device from Sioplast from Thuringia or hybrid field therapy.

Konstantin Meyl also tried his hand at the alternative medicine market. His company INDEL Industrieelektronik GmbH or their department First transfer center for scalar wave technology ETZS in St. Georgen offers a device for 7,888 euros, which was advertised for use in the wellness area and "serves to improve the body's energy balance". It is now emphasized that the device is being sold exclusively for experimental purposes. However, Meyl still claims that numerous doctors and naturopaths buy his experimental equipment in order to '"cure chronic inflammatory and degenerative diseases, neurodermatitis, allergies and even cancer."

A way of thinking that is widespread among pseudo-medical professionals becomes clear here as well: One pretends to be able to generate scalar waves with the most primitive electronic means, but is not able to specify a method with which one can detect the generated scalar waves, let alone measure their intensity or other parameters can (apart from supposed evidence such as Meyl's experiment kit). Nevertheless, it is considered justified to expose patients to radiation that cannot be controlled in this way.
