Since the mid-1990s, more than three dozen systems have advanced into the refereed scientific literature purporting to challenge the absolute status of the second law of thermodynamics. Many have strong experimental support and follow a common template. The talk explores this template as a framework for understanding second law devices and as a possible roadmap for future ones.
Dr. Sheehan earned his B.S. in Chemistry at Santa Clara University (1981, magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and Ph.D. in Physics at U.C. Irvine (1987); he has been teaching at the University of San Diego since 1989. His areas of research include basic plasma physics, planetary formation, nanotechnology, the physics of time, and experimentally testable challenges to the second law of thermodynamics.
