comment Does Nantenna (nano antenna) violates 2nd Law of Thermodynamics?
What kind of information you need to make ventilator to rotate? Do you need to know location and direction of fluctuation?

Thank You! I find it strange that someone invented nantennas, got nanotechnology award for the invention and claimed wrong or revolutional application for the invention and it is shyly ignored by science community for 4 years already.

comment Does Nantenna (nano antenna) violates 2nd Law of Thermodynamics?
Inventor of nantennas Dr. Steven Novack claims applications for nantennas that violate 2nd law in his interview on radio station. But absolutely most science community believe he is wrong and such applications are impossible as they violate 2nd law? Is that correct?

comment Does Nantenna (nano antenna) violates 2nd Law of Thermodynamics?
Please, comment if you minus. I quote wikipedia, It is mentions that my question make sense. If someone says it does not violates then I have to argue that it does when it make sense.

If rectifier efficiency would be 1% then it still will take energy out from system as direct current. MIM diodes operating at 150Thz have 40% efficiency. 150Thz is most IR spectrum. Every body radiate at IR spectrum.

There are random alternating currents that diodes rectify. That is why nantenna becomes colder and energy goes away as direct rectified current.

Is it like Peltier element? Because Peltier has cold and hot sides. But nanoantenna with diod rectify alternating current at 150 Thz into DC and there is no temperature difference.

Does thermocouple have a cooling effect? I think it requires difference of temperatures to produce electricity.

But they have MIM diodes connected to Nantennas. Such diods operated at up to 150 THz. Diods are rectifying currents. That is why it will not radiate back. It covers most IR spectrum in the room. When news about nantennas arrived in 2008 I read that it has cooling effect. But I can't find it now. Same rectifying effect at lower frequencies are used in wireless chargers for mobile phones.
