Author curriculum vitae.


The author DE WITTE Roland is born the 29 september 1953 two years before the death of Albert Einstein in a small village of the south of Belgium where he is still living ( rue de l'Aubée 11, B-6792 Halanzy ). E-mail: roland.dewitte@pi.be

baby

The author (very young).

He was a beautiful baby and thus pampered by his parents all his youth.

What is clear is that there is already an intelligent expression in his eyes which was a sure sign that he would be going to do very great things for the history of humanity during his life.

Even if he is of humble origin (working-class) , he has never been miserable .

Already since the age of twelve (or before) he was interested by sciences with the hope to become somebody like Thomas Edison. Like him he tried to build apparatus for telegraphy, telephony for which he was nicknamed (totem) " Sensible Beaver " when he was scout.

His dream was also to have like Edison a laboratory in a train van, that unfortunately he has never had the chance to be able to buy one.

Thus he began experimentations in his sleeping room with a lot of dangerous acids, vapours, chemicals to build rockets, etc...together with electronics parts used to build small transmitters with the aid (diagram) of a TV repairer from the village (M. Jacques Mangin).

As he was very interested by science (not teached to young children at that time) , he didn't want to go to school and thus became the apprentice of an electrician where he learned to build electric putting in houses. At the same time at the age of forteen he decided to take private correspondance courses of electronics ( lectures on transistorized circuits from the EURELEC company) with a diploma obtained at the age of sixteen. Together with the lectures he has built a complete radio receiver with several apparatus like an oscilloscope (only 4 Mhz bandwidth ) or an electronic voltmeter.

Nevertheless after a problem with the boss, he dicided to stop to work as an apprentice and to go to school. Unfortunately without a state diploma it was impossible for him to be admitted in an ordinary school with teenagers of his age. After to have worked for a scrap company where he used dynamite, he has been finally admitted in a secondary school due to a good director, but with the condition to pass some tests from the board of the state's examiners (called Central Jury) for the first three years. After have sat the exams he became a legitimate schoolboy. But when he was in the last but one year in secondary school, he decided to prepare for the entrance exam in physics of the Liège's University.

By chance he brought it off and became university's student in physics one year before his friends.

During secondary school he was interested by all the scientific activities and became a schoolboy president of the Scientific Youths (of the school in Virton). All the simple physics experiments have been performed: Millikan, photoelectric effect, spectroscopy, etc... and a small electronics laboratory has been started.

contest

Here he recieved the prize from the Belgian Shell Company (organizer of the contest).

The author has also taken part to different contests of scientific short talks. He became prizewinner for a talk about " special relativity " even with a long hair like the Beatles

For him it is a good recollection, even if he knows at present that Einstein is wrong and thus that the prize means that he didn't see the absurdities of the theory while in secondary school.

einstein

The author was so in love of Einstein that he took the time to visit the house where Einstein lived a few months in Belgium when he ran away from Germany before Hitler decide to...

It is the " Villa Savoyarde " at " Coq-Sur-Mer  ", 200 m from the North Sea. A very beautiful seaside resort of the author's country.

During secondary school the author had hobbies like astronomy and pirate radio transmission at 27 Mhz (50 W P.A.), with a hand-made transmitter.

The best long distance communication has been with Denmark whose QSL is below.

An important fact about the author is that he is not able to study by heart. During secondary school, even with his bad memory which caused problems in history and English (where memory is needed) he got always the maximum of points in physics, chemistry and mathematics and was the top of his class.

At University he obtained the diploma for a two years degree in physics but was not able to continue due to the impossibility to study by heart several thousands of pages of erroneous calculations like the others did to obtain the diploma of graduate.

Thus even if he was considered to be intelligent by several teachers, he decided to leave the University and to become the manager of a retail shop of electronic components.

He did this job during ten years but also in performing different private physics's experiments and in studying theoretical physics.

He was interested by microwaves and became IEEE member and reader of the publications of the Microwave Theory & Techniques and Intrumentation & Measurement Societies.

During that period he built an electron spin resonance spectrometer (on the left) for the pleasure to study the electron and free radicals. By chance he was invited by the Dr. Yves Lion (now Professor) of the Physics Institute of the University of Liège to help them a few weeks in their researchs on the photoionisation mechanism of the tryptophan amino-acid with the powerfull EPR spectrometer on the right (Series Mark III of Varian Associates).

He was also interested by TV satellite reception and Meteosat images. He took the time to calculate and build several microwave microstrip circuits like a 18 dB low noise amplifier using GaAs-Fets for 11.34 GHz.

Several apparatus using microprocessors have also being developped like a digital storage system for Meteosat's images.

In 1990 he became civil servant in the metrology departement of theTransmission Laboratories of Belgacom (Belgian Telephone Company). His job was to test the synchronization of rubidium frequency standards on a distant master ceasium beam clock (photo on the left close to the speaking clock). It is there that he took the time to compare the phase of distant ceasium clocks and discovered a periodic phase shift signal of space origin (sidereal day period).

Now the author is retired from the society (after have been dismissed) and works on theoretical physics, phylosophy of science, while performing different cheap experiments to test his new electron theory and also develops a new working process for a ceasium without beam clock .
