Scalar-tensor theories and asymmetric resonant cavities

  • F. O. Minotti


The recently published experimental results indicate the appearance of unusual forces on asymmetric, electromagnetic resonant cavities. It is argued here that a particular class of scalar-tensor theories of gravity could account for this effect.
