Abstract

Here is presented a range of cases in which alpha-emitting nanoparticulates play a key role : the first part involves mathematical and physical deconstruction of two examples of laboratory experiments, on “exciton” physics (dark-to-bright “exciton” conversion, the demonstration shows why “exciton” is a relatively poor concept) and on the anomalous Nernst effect, both recently published in Physical Reviews X; the link of alpha-emitting nanoparticulates with solar storms is then shown; and an ancient legend in medieval literature (the Arthurian cycle) also covered (the physical basis behind the legend is explained - demonstration of the actual production of particularly healthy waters collected by “Merlin” after a battle, of why it is a detoxifiant - geology and etymology being used to locate more precisely the place of the actual battles that inspired the myth - from the Gallic Wars of Julius Caesar).
