Hall-effect Power Generator promises greater returns

When the original work was done for the Hall-effect Power Generator patent application (US20110241477 A1), it was felt best to calculate a conservative estimate of output voltage using the conventional Hall-effect as a guide. The result was a quadratic expression for output voltage, dependent on the square of incident magnetic field (Bs).
Recent reconsiderations suggest that the device will operate as a two-dimensional electron system, such that the quantum Hall-effect will apply rather than the conventional Hall-effect. This bodes well for both the voltage output level, as well as overall power output which could well exceed 100MW for a single unit. Since cryogenic cooling is required for this design, it will likely not be a home-based unit as some who frequent this website might prefer.
