    I'm looking for information on Blackett's effect in general and the derivation of his fomula in particular.

    Whether this phenomenon really exist is of little importance to me.
    What I'm interested in is how he got to that formula.
    Btw, neutral rotating masses do produce minute magnetic field due to small effects like thermal current fluctuations, centrifugal forces, gravity etc.
