There are many papers on Heim 'hyperdrive' here
and perhaps also here http://www.heim-theory.com
As far as I remember R. Chiao is working, since
long time, on e.m. <-> gravity transducers. That
it to say a 'medium' (like a quantum Hall fluid,
or any other medium with a collective Berry phase,
or the like) which may transform e.m. radiation in
gravitational radiation and viceversa (btw, such a device
would reveal the supposed gravitational cosmic background
radiation due to the Big Bang). This is, of course,
different from a _direct_ interaction between
photons and gravitons.
