Thread: LENR - Cold Fusion

  1. #11
    Another interesting article here seems the Japanese researchers are making progress and so are the US Navy labs

    ...in August, the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory awarded MacAulay-Brown, a security consultant that serves federal agencies, US $12 million to explore, among other things, “low-energy nuclear reactions and advanced energetics.”...

    It's all looking promising...
    An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

    The reports of a "cone" forming, over and over again within the furnace as they attempted to refine the zirconium sounds unusual.
    What significance do you think it implies?

    Yep I can’t see how that experiment is related to LENR? Just not enough details.
    Surely you need gamma radiation and bigger isotopes to show it was LENR?

    It is something of a rogue theory.
    Many simply dismiss it as wrong. "Anything BUT thermonuclear".
    Seems those who are studying it are going to have to rewrite a few rules of physics, before the experimental observations can be explained.

    Andrea Rossi is still going....
    A demo of his new (I think 20Kw) Ekat SK- 31st Jan.

    This seems to be a major step for Andrea Rossi. Who knows if it will playout?

    E-Cat SKL Power Output Is ’70-80% Electricity’, Testing By ‘Well Known World Institution’ Comes Next

    We know that Andrea Rossi’s recent goal has been to be able to produce not only heat, but electricity with the E-Cat SK Leonardo. And on Saturday he claimed that “we got more electric energy that the electric energy necessary to make the Cat work.”

    Since he posted the initial statement he has given a little more information about this. He was asked what percentage of the output power of the E-Cat SKL was electricity. He replied “Most of the production is electricity. 70-80%.”...

    USG workshop on LENR

    Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions Workshop
    October 21-22, 2021

    The objective of this workshop is to explore compelling R&D opportunities in Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) [1], in support of developing metrics for a potential ARPA-E R&D program in LENR. Despite a large body of empirical evidence for LENR that has been reported internationally over the past 30+ years in both published and unpublished materials, as well as multiple books, there still does not exist a widely accepted, on-demand, repeatable LENR experiment nor a sound theoretical basis. This has led to a stalemate where adequate funding is not accessible to establish irrefutable evidence and understanding of LENR, and lack of the latter precludes the field from accessing adequate funding. Building on and leveraging the most promising recent developments in LENR research, ARPA-E envisions a potential two-phase approach toward breaking this stalemate:

    1. Support targeted R&D toward establishing at least one on-demand, repeatable LENR experiment with diagnostic evidence that is convincing to the wider scientific community (focus of this workshop);
    2. If phase 1 above is successful (metrics to be determined), support a broader range of R&D activities (to be defined later) toward better understanding of LENR and its potential for scale-up toward disruptive energy applications, thus setting up LENR for broader and more systematic support by both the public and private sectors...
