Abstract

The notion that our universe is composed of scalar fields is becoming more of a fact as we learn more about the nature of the universe. The most appealing fact toward this is the discovery that the cosmos is expanding due to vacuum or dark energy. Cosmological expansion presents itself as a fifth force. In this paper, fifth force models are developed base on the Chameleon scalar field model presented by Khoury and Weltman that presents an alternate means of acquiring the same force results as attainable from the standard Newtonian force models. These models are incomplete, but with further development, could lead others to develop force producing devices using unforeseen methods not visible under current models.
