Relativity and Acceleration. An attempt to explain Special Relativity without the use of light signals, and to show how the application of the theory to acceleration can be understood in a fairly non-mathematical way.
Reflections on a Transmission Line. Reflection of energy in a transmission line is well known, and is usually regarded as a fairly trivial topic in classical electromagnetic theory, but this article demonstrates that it is far from trivial, and that explanation of the fine details goes beyond the classical theory.
Conduction In Metals. An investigation into the linearity of conduction in metals such as copper.
There is also an archive page with some not entirely serious 'crackpot theories' which are probably almost entirely wrong. Originally included with the physics but now removed to avoid anyone taking them too seriously, they are really just for amusement. Much to my surprise one of the ideas, that quarks are faster-than-light electrons, has been seriously proposed in a published paper.
