Kim Blake describes his theory about a plausible way to extract hydrogen from water using particular vibrations of light.

: "I'm [putting] out a couple of ideas that nobody is considering (i.e.. using energy that is now being wasted or ignored), then seeing if anyone else has insight along those lines." -- Kim Blake

When the ground was frozen and covered with snow and ice, Grandpa used his team of horses to pull the wagon or sleigh so that he could take hay to feed his cattle. Both horses pulled the same direction to accomplish the task. Much energy is wasted in our world today, figuratively hitching one horse to the front and the other to the back, more interested in seeing which horse is stronger than in effectively achieving a great goal. Here’s a goal: Use less energy to separate a water molecule than you get back out when you burn it. With an attitude of combining our imaginations, expertise, and resources, join me in thinking about this.(Most equivalence values in tables are approximations.)

To ionize (remove) a hydrogen atom from a water molecule, it takes 13.6 eV (electron volts), or a photon of wavelength 91.2nm (nanometers). (Note: Visible light is roughly 380nm starting ultraviolet, to 750nm starting into infrared. The shorter the wavelength, the higher the energy level.) Some interesting research has been conducted that would seem to modify this rule, and sees results at 250nm. Check the “Research? section on this web site:

Consider what happens when a person receives an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) at the hospital. Against a constant magnetic field, another pulsing magnetic field adds energy to hydrogen (our focus) atoms. Each time an electron falls back to its normal energy position, an electromagnetic pulse of equal energy is given off. These pulses can be analyzed to make a picture of your insides. With this in mind, consider what happens during the electrolysis process. If you put in 13.6 eV or 91.2 nm energy, a hydrogen atom is ionized. When the nucleus receives an electron from the negative pole, the electron falls to its normal energy position and an equal energy pulse is given off. That pulse could be captured and recycled to obtain over-unity results. Whatever exothermic energy you get from burning hydrogen is “gravy? and has nothing to do with the original energy you put into the process. Does water act like a sponge to absorb “dark energy??

Can visible light from the sun add 1.7 to 3.1 eV, to whatever other energy you supply?

Very interesting. I like your idea. UV is very useful it plays a part in my asymetric parabolic mirrors. Aiding the hydrogen formation on the platinum. In nature it is responsible for hydrogen peroxide formation in ponds in streams. What do you think by the way of a deep infra-red laser and a hard ultra violet laser meeting in a water solution? It seems to me it would cause a reaction. definitely with a titanium dioxide catalyst.
