Extract of « Notes Biographiques »
1970-1973 : Research at the Centre d’Etudes Nucléaires de Grenoble
offers Georges Yatridès a team of researchers.
In the C.E.N.G. laboratories, Georges Yatridès demonstrates his theory of anew property from the time of its interaction in sequences of stabilization ofatomically complex substances, not irreversible time sequences, and itsinfluence in various areas, including that of the light which that certain phasesof bulb of different solids.
In this last area, particularly in that of the pyroformation of hydrocarbons,
Georges Yatridès gets patent approved by Washington D.C. Patent Office forthe United States and other countries concerned by these objectives. Thus are confirmed his research started in 1968.
Georges Yatridès still pays tribute here to the science of Paul Perroud, Doctorof Knowledge of Berkeley, who was able to immediately recognize the scientific value of his discoveries.
Personal research has led Yatridès to carry out personal experiments on light at the CEA-CENG in the Special Applications of Physics headed by Paul Perroud. For reasons to determine the existence of Perroud is almost hidden. Patents YATRIDES all claims granted by the Patent Office Washington DC take into account the references of Paul Perroud CEA They cite the scattering of vapors from the components of the burning tobacco produced the tobacco focus which reaches 800 ° (tobacco is hydrocarbon material, composed of many components).
They do not, however, cite reactions caused by the light emitted by a solid element introduced into the tobacco. Its incandescence leads to determining chemical reactions. Rejecting the commercial proposals, Yatrides refused to participate in the increase in tobacco sales. The reduction of hydrocarbons caused by his experiments was not his objective. This refers to the predominant influence of the radiation of light, which is oriented differently from those which Mendeleev was able to evoke from the supposed beginning of matter with the picturesque name "big bang", from which miraculously arise hydrogen and light .
