Explaining the physics is not what you need to be after. If you are correct, that will be shown well after the objective physical evidence makes the case. This can't be done the other way around.
In order to test the substrate for true superconductivity, and show evidence sufficient to convince someone like an investor, you have to have a really good test. I find that unlikely with just 6mm substrates. I'm not an EE so I can't say, but let me ask, what would it take for you to build much larger samples, not necessarily square but long rectangles would be very useful in testing, I would think.
Well I am pretty certain that once an investor has gone through my patent he/she will be convinced. For example, I prove in my patent why the present ceramic materials will not reach a critical temperature more than about 250 K; and then define the additional properties a material must have to go higher than this. In other words the patent really gives a method to ensure that a material has the potential to superconduct. Just think how much money will be saved in the research costs which are being squandered at the moment to look haphazardly for higher temperature superconductors.
Furthermore, if I have the typical equipment that you can find in semiconductor fab, I will be able to do 4-point contact measurements.
To do larger substrates is possible but it will require a new vacuum-system and in addition access to an ion implanter. I do not have the money for either of them. The system I am using to modify the 4x6 mmsq substrates at the moment is really Heath-Robinson and when I use it, I have to rent the required power supplies.
I do not expect that an investor should invest big money before he is convinced. He should first look at what I have, and then suggest additional modifications and measurements he would like us to do. The cost of such an initial investigation is miniscule compared to the benefits if I am right.
As far as generating s superconducting phase by extracting electrons into the vacuum which then transfer charge from the diamond substrate to the anode, I know I am totally correct. The substrates which I have developed since, conduct parallel to the diamond's surface. I am also convinced that they are superconducting, but would also like to do more measurements. The only problem is that I do not have the equipment and cannot afford it.
