A Magnetic Analogue to the Strong Nuclear Force

The research paper is “Polarity Free Magnetic Repulsion and Magnetic Bound State”. Here is the abstract:

This is a report on a dynamic autonomous magnetic interaction which does not depend on polarities resulting in short ranged repulsion involving one or more inertial bodies and a new class of bound state based on this interaction. Both effects are new to the literature, found so far. Experimental results are generalized and reported qualitatively. Working principles of these effects are provided within classical mechanics and found consistent with observations and simulations. The effects are based on the interaction of a rigid and finite inertial body (an object having mass and moment of inertia) endowed with a magnetic moment with a cyclic inhomogeneous magnetic field which does not require to have a local minimum. Such a body having some degrees of freedom involved in driven harmonic motion by this interaction can experience a net force in the direction of the weak field regardless of its position and orientation or can find stable equilibrium with the field itself autonomously. The former is called polarity free magnetic repulsion and the latter is classified as a magnetic bound state. Experiments show that a bound state can be obtained between two free bodies having magnetic dipole moment as a solution of two-body problem. Various schemes of trapping bodies having magnetic moments by rotating fields are realized as well as rotating bodies trapped by a static dipole field in presence of gravity. Additionally, a special case of bound state called bipolar bound state between free dipole bodies is investigated.


A magnetic bound state solution in classical physics is based on a stable equilibrium of a magnetostatic attraction force, basically between two dipoles and a dynamic repulsive interaction which varies two times faster than a magnetostatic forces respect to the distance while strength of these forces depend on configurations. So by choosing a suitable ratio between these strengths, it is possible to obtain a similar curve of the strong nuclear force profile.
