I have performed an experiment which is a variant of the one suggested recently by F.O. Minotti and T.E. Raptis (arXiv: 1310.5029). The aim of this experiment is to check the generation of a pulsed gravitational potential, χ, by a transient magnetic field as predicted by a scalar-tensor theory (STT) of gravity. Such a STT allows an enhanced coupling of its fundamental long-range real scalar field, ϕ, as well as its external scalar field, ψ, to the electromagnetic (EM) field, according to the author’s previous papers. Several possible sources that could mimic the predicted effect have been ruled out. Finally, it seems likely that the predicted effect is there with the right order of magnitude, as expected. © 2015, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
