  Graviton - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
The opposite of a graviton is an antigraviton.
The graviton was postulated by Earth physicists in the 20th century as an outgrowth of quantum gravity theory.
Gravitons were apparently harnessed in the 20th century since the Vulcan ship in ENT: "Carbon Creek", the SS Botany Bay in TOS: "Space Seed", and the 20th century cryogenic satellite ship in TNG: "The Neutral Zone" clearly show artificial gravity usage.

  Graviton (comics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Graviton (Franklin Hall) is an elemental supervillain in the Marvel Comics universe, and an enemy of The Avengers and the Thunderbolts.
Graviton is an extremely powerful villain with the power of gyrokinesis; the superhuman ability to control gravity in the area around him.
Hall is a gravitokinetic, able to manipulate gravitons for various uses, including the projection of concussive blasts, formation of force fields and levitation, and has also proven capable of generating gravitational fields in various objects, making them attract any nearby matter (or individuals) not heavy enough or physically strong enough to resist.

 Graviton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In physics, the graviton is a hypothetical elementary particle that transmits the force of gravity in some quantum gravity theories.
They are postulated because of the success of the Standard Model at modelling the behavior of all other forces of nature with similar particles: electromagnetism with the photon, the strong interaction with the gluons, and the weak interaction with the W and Z bosons.
A graviton in perturbative string theory is a closed string in a very particular low-energy vibrational state.

In physics, the graviton is a hypothetical elementary particle that transmits the force of gravity in most quantum gravity systems.
Any such theory would require a graviton to operate in a fashion similar to a photon, but unlike electrodynamics where the photons act directly on each other and their charged particles, gravity just doesn't work so simply.
The only way to detect them would be to look for cases where the overall motion or energy of an object changes in a way that is different than predicted by general relativity, but one of the basic principles of quantum gravity would be that it matches those predictions as closely as possible.

 Graviton pulse - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
A graviton pulse is a focused concentration of graviton particles.
In 2369, a coherent graviton pulse was used to close the subspace rupture that was allowing solanagen-based lifeforms into "normal" space.
In 2375, a graviton pulse was used by a small Klingon fleet to disrupt the warp drives of several pursuing Jem'Hadar attack ships.

 TrekWars - The Furry Conflict: Graviton/Subspace Amplification Shielding
In addition to the subspace field component, StarFleet shields employ a limited graviton field which helps to cushion or deflect impacts and to spread threat weapon energies over a large area of the shield, thereby reducing a weapon's ability to pierce through the subspace field shell (Figure 3.1).
Weapons which are immune to graviton dispersion (zero mass particles) would normally be considered more of a threat to starships, except that these particles are much more readily absorbed into subspace than particles with mass.
Unlike with the subspace component of a shield, the gravity component permeates all throughout the transverse volume, although the gravitons are generated in frequency sync with the subspace field.

 Paradoxes Resolved, Origins Illuminated - Gravitational Engineering - The Graviton Sail
Since gravitons don't penetrate below the surface, the net force on such an object is a function of its surface area, shape and orientation in the graviton flux.
The thrust that a graviton sail might be able to produce is going to be directly proportional to the diameter of the base and more or less directly proporional to the height of the point.
if this graviton wind is blowing toward the center of the body why is this action not more three dimensional.in other words why is this action not happening in a more 360 degree space with depth and breadth of the body effectivly cancelling out this wind to the middle of the body.

 particle physics - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about particle physics
The existence of the gauge bosons that carry this force, the W and Z particles, was confirmed in 1983 at CERN, the European nuclear research organization.
The fourth fundamental force, gravity (4), is experienced by all matter; the postulated carrier of this force has been named the graviton.
The electron, muon, tau, and their neutrinos comprise the leptons – particles with half-integral spin that ‘feel’ the weak nuclear and electromagnetic force but not the strong force.

However, there were numerous sayings among graviton gliders that spoke highly of the custom of exchanging thoughts and flashing lifespark along the way.
Graviton gliding was the mind's ceaseless new path of pleasure.

Graviton's "line" option causes the particles to be initially arranged in a single diagonal line.
Wizmo's graviton particles are normally prevented from leaving the visible screen through the presence of screen edge boundaries that cancel the particle's departure velocity.
However, Wizmo's graviton math supports an infinite universe in which particles are allowed to exist outside of visible space.

 BBC - Radio 4 In Our Time - The Graviton
The search is still on for a unifying theory of gravitational force and hopes are pinned on the location of the graviton - a hypothetical elementary particle that transmits the force of gravity.
The idea of the graviton particle first emerged in the middle of the twentieth century, when the notion that particles as mediators of force was taken seriously.
Physicists believed that it could be applicable to gravity and by the late 20th century the hunt was truly on for the ultimate theory, a theory of quantum gravity.

 What is the graviton? Please place your definitions
Would we consider the gathering of gravitons as describing each point of the wave, so such a wave would need to describe not only the energy released from the oscillatory nature of Mercuries orbits, but of recognizing the strong energy(many gravitons) congregation, in what we have considered of the flhole?
Because a graviton is expected to have very low energy it could be the building block for all other particles.Dark energy may be increasing in its total energy as the universe expands, because graviton energy is being used to construct dark energy.
Gravitons are like dark energy, in that both are names given to concepts that are not well understood.
