Abstract : A superconducting microwave engine that achieves mechanical to microwave energy conversion or microwave to mechanical energy conversion. Such is accomplished by employing a superconducting resonator to increase the decay time of the microwaves inside the resonator and thereby provide the resonator with sufficient time to adiabatically deform and change its eigenfrequency so as to effect a change in the frequency and corresponding energy state of such microwaves in accordance with the Boltzman-Ehrenfest Theorem. This invention may be in the form of a cylindrical cavity and piston combination, a cavity and vibrating diaphragm combination, or a cylindrical cavity and concentric rotor combination. (Author)
