LENR in a nutshell

LENR is an optical based process where light is trapped in a waveform called a soliton. Think of this structure as Nano sized ball lightning. This ball of light can form in many ways: inside ultra-dense hydrogen, on the surface of rough metal surfaces, inside cracks in metal, on nanoparticles and microparticles, between nanoparticles, and in dusty plasma. But critically, this soliton is not active until it is triggered through the electrostatic effects of a stimulating emission. 

When this soliton first form, light rotates around inside the soliton and supports two degenerate propagating-wave modes: clockwise (CW) and counterclockwise (CCW) waves, manifesting the symmetry of this system. This counter rotation of the light negates any organization of the spin of the light from generating any meaningful magnetic effect. 

But when the symmetry of this counter rotating light is broken by this electrostatic stimulant, like a magnet all spin of the light ceases to interfere with each other and a newly organized super intense magnetic beam projects out of the soliton in an highly organized mode. The soliton then becomes a synthetic analog monopole quasiparticle. 

When this beam of magnetism enters inside protons and neutrons that move into its path, the quarks that make up these protons and neutrons change their type(color) and the protons and neutrons transform into exotic mesons made up of strange and beauty quark types. Energy is also produced in these subatomic particle decays and is feed back into the solitons of light thereby increasing their intensity. In this way, this infusion of incoming subatomic energy allows the soliton to survive for an extended period in a self-sustaining mode while the electrostatic stimulant continues to maintain the organization of the photonic spin. 

Leif Holmlid has been using a laser pulse as the stimulator but yesterday Sveinn Olafsson just told me this: “Leif has applied fast high electric field and sees meson signal”

Efforts to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels are advancing on various significant fronts. Initiatives include research focused on more efficient production of gaseous hydrogen fuel by using solar energy to break water down into components of hydrogen and oxygen. Scientists have now reported a key breakthrough in the basic science essential for progress toward this goal.

It turns out that to develop a ‘cumulative culture’ – technology that constantly ratchets up in complexity and diversity – a species needs to be able to share information very accurately. It doesn’t matter how much novel invention takes place, unless those inventions are replicated accurately then they die out before they can be built upon.” —Prof. Kevin Laland, University of St. Andrew’s

I have to add the zeroth rule in problem solving to my 20 Rules of Real Life Problem Solving:
0) accept the problem as real and make it YOUR problem


I have received zero feedback to my writing of yesterday- my peculiar vision of the troubles of Cold Fusion and it would be childish naivety to ask why. I have already presented too many times in vain the same ideas; the cradle CF system is intangible
plus the essential message could be understood as a nasty, unjust question:  "Colleagues should we accept we were barking at the bad tree ( a small bush actually for 28+ long years? An attack against the popular cradle system coming from a talkative- non contributor who in his sunset year(s) is on the wrong side in the fiercest dispute hitting our field.

However because I really care for the future of LENR , I am asking now:


As Ed Storms has described it , Cold fusion LENR takes place only in special places
in matter (in palladium, first of all) and the generation of theas places- N.A.E or active sites is a difficult not well controllable ('intensifiable') process. 
That is Ed says that cold fusion works with PREFORMED NAE.  Regarding the role of the temperature, here is his recent comment cited with permission:

Yes, I saw Kirkinskii's ideas. He is right. Because the LENR effect is controlled bytemperature, use of high temperature will result in increased energy once the NAE has formed. Unfortunately, simply heating a material does not create the NAE.   People following Rossi have made the mistake of thinking that high temperature alone produces LENR.  Also, people evaluating PdD have made the mistake of failing to consider the effect of temperature.
Rossi activates the Ni before it is heated. He has not revealed how this is done. People using Pd in an electrolytic cell are limited to too low a temperature for production of significant power.  Until these limitations are taken into account, comparing the amount of power that can be produced by Pd and Ni is not possible. 

Now, what Rossi does is unknown however denying that he intensified excess heat from Watts to Kilowatts a difficult job...anyway.
I think the pre-formed active sites method with Pd or Ni or whatever cannot make cold fusion a practical technology and that the the role of high working temperature is to generate constantly heat generating sites. I believe in in-situ formed active sites, in what i called LENR+ in March 2012.
The future will show who and what is true. Till then I firmly believe that increasing of temperature  say about 700C triggers qualitative changes, triggers new mechanism- makes them possible.
(to be continued, apparently my site was today under some attack)

I just realized that given the  the abused parallel between Cold Fusion and the history of aviation, saying that the Doral test 1 year long has not worked,  is the equivalent of saying flight of the heavier-than-air machines is not possible - after the Lindbergh flight.

An example for all countries interested in progress of LENR, I think.


 3) Low-energy nuclear reaction
The Center for Nuclear Study, University of Tokio
Nuclear structure of neutron-rich nuclei which will be produced by RIPS or BigRIPS at RIBF are to be studied by employing the low-energy nuclear reactions such as proton resonance elastic scattering. In particular, the nuclei around 32Mg where the nuclear structure suddenly changes are being studied. This experiment can be related to an unknown nuclear force which breaks the isospin symmetry.

In parallel with the studies, we are developing devices to produce a high spin isomer target of 178m2Hf, which will be synthesized, and then purified by using the laser resonant ionization. When it is succeeded, long-standing dream of nuclear physics, production of hyper deformation, torus shape of nucleus, would come true.

This paper was originally published in the CFRL News (Cold Fusion Research Laboratory News) No. 94 (2015.06.10). The nuclear transmutation (NT) in the cold fusion phenomenon (CFP) is an astonishing event not expected from the perspectives the pioneering researchers had in their motivation to perform experiments in this field. The researchers, however, seemed to realize the complex nature of the CFP at the first stage of their research not reconciling into the framework they had in their mind as expressed by Fleischmann et al. in their paper published in 1989; “The most surprising feature of our results however, is that reactions (v) and (vi) are only a small part of the overall reaction scheme and that the bulk of the energy release is due to an hitherto unknown nuclear process or processes (presumably "FORBIDDEN Scienceagain due to deuterons).”[Fleischmann 1989]

Chemical energy sources (oil and gas) will run out in the next 30–50 years. In addition to the depletion of these sources, there is a so-called greenhouse effect, which imposes severe restrictions on the use of chemical fuel. Nuclear reactors use uranium and hope to use thorium reserves of fissile materials that will last for no more than 100–200 years. In addition to poor safety record of nuclear reactors, the problem of burying radioactive nuclear reactor waste for a period of thousands years has not have a reliable solution.

During the last 25–30 years, so called cold nuclear fusion processes in conductive crystals have been developed. This paper discusses the main features of such processes.

Warning note. 

As told, the first 27 years of cold Fusion history gave me the privilege  and treasure of so many good friends, friends up to death, theirs or mine. I regret but the last year, due to my position in the Rossi vs Darden Trial- defending the Rossi technology has furnished the curse of enemies- and mutual, irreversible, violent enmity  also will last  up to death, their or much more probably mine, they are younger than me.

And these individuals of very low morals are- if they speak about me- misinterpreting everything I say. Now, they will probably accuse me, again, of disrespect for the Founders. Unfounded and unjust- Martin and Stanley have my full admiration for their genius- however I will show that a a long self--reinforcing chain of unlucky events and circumstances caused deep troubles to Cold Fusion; and that must be understood realistically for the sake of the future of our field.

The problem of opposition/funding  to cold fusion was discussed yesterday on CMNS but - a coincidence also by Gerard Mc Ek and Andrea Rossi on JONP.
 A very complex and also "wicked" problem, however  in my opinion some vital aspects are ignored and these added make trouble. (You know, problems can be solved, troubles not really- we can complain and eventually get rid of them).

1. Cold Fusion was a "miscovery" that is a discovery made in a bad place, 25 years minimum before its time, by geniuses having an unproper profession for nurturing their brainchild. PdD is a not fully developed form of  LENR- it is static not dynamic.

2. Very soon it became obvious that the trouble goes faar beyond a lack of theory
cold fusion is an unknown group  nuclear phenomena lacking definition and identity.  So for example if Ethan Siegel or Randy Mills rejects Cold fusion, that is not the same Cold Fusion that is embraced by Ed Storms, Peter Hagelstein Yuri Bazhutov
and these three scientists also have differing Images of the field.
Conceptual chaos was inborn for Cold Fusion and I want to see that somebody proves now it is cured. OK, let's admit it is difficult to make sharp distinctions between identity, definition, basic theory; reality transcends these due to the otherness, complexity, diversity, dynamism, deep change of Cold Fusion/LENR
that includes not only nuclear, but pre- and post-nuclear stages- phenomena
and demands a theoryplex, not an unique theoretical construct.  If what i have said in this paragraph is true- it is not contributing to the attractiveness of Cold Fusion.

3. Many collateral idea have popped out fast, however the Founders' electrolytic cell became the dominant, genuine, variant of Cold fusion and despite all the obstacles shown in historical reviews up to the answers given now to Alan Smith the real rejection started gradually only when it was stated and restated the chronic inability to obtain convincingly reproducible and reproducibly convincing results, showing a promise for improvement- quantitative- i.e. scale up and intensification plus qualitative that is controllable & manageable- toward LENR technology. Based on a discussion with Fleischmann I think this was approx. the IMRA France test's finish.
Undeniably hundreds of promising results have been obtained worldwide assuring the survival of LENR, however these were not additive and the promising results matured and got old continuing to be promising results. 

4. When two or more  real choices exist and the bad(worst) one is chosen- this defines an error; I think this is definitely not the case with Cold Fussion for the following strategic steps:

a) Cold Fusion is first of all about thermal effects, and the trend was to prove these by more sensitive calorimetric measurement, the reliability of these is high but still not absolute as series of recent discussions between the best experts have shown it
huge creative energies etc. had been spent for measurement;

b) The axiom:"we have to discover how Cold fusion works, and only knowing this-
by using the Scientific Method may we proceed toward technological development'
is a must and that's perfectly fine, IF the PdD system is NOT a kind of cul-de-sac technically speaking  i.e. it lacks actionable parameter; then the efforts have to be 
redirected to other systems as the dry NiH as a pioneering representative of the "transition metal- light hydrogen systems" Question: where does Cold fusion rea;;ly work;

c) For pure blood physicists it is OK that there are many Cold Fusion experimental systems beyond the cradle system and also tens and tens off extremely smart theories ; what is disturbing is the lack of real connection between existing theories and experiment.

This is the first part of my essay to be continued tomorrow.

Question is it useful for defining "serious LENR research'?

I think it is ana alternative to this situation, but it is in danger to be rejected
ab ovo even in the Cold Fusion group.
I will speak again about the "technology First". Lenr + idea.

A Manager’s Mirror, Episode V

Bridge the gap between formal and informal
by Georgina Popescu

In most organisations the formal hierarchies and processes co-exist with an almost parallel universe, conventionally called informal structure.

The most adaptable recognize and strive to understand this reality and its effects on business. Then periodically bridge the gap – either by incorporating clever informal ways of doing things into the formal processes or by adjusting the formal controls in a way to prevent further spread of unhealthy informal practice.

In terms of people, the ‘soft’ skills that enable communication and managerial effectiveness are unevenly distributed among the formal and informal hierarchies.

In my view, a successful manager has a third eye that enables him/her to see through respective universe and thus steer in the right direction for the benefit of the working environment.

I see the measure of success as being able to bring together the best from both sides, by designing a formal frame that fits both theory (technical, legal, moral, regulatory compliance and industry standards) and practice (experience and wisdom from the informal world). At the same time, it means ensuring motivation and empowerment to those informal leaders which can become constructive enablers, while weeding out the unjustified resistance fighters that may compromise beneficial strategic change.

Each organization and manager has to find their own way in bridging this gap, with only one universal solution: common sense!

Image result for opposition quotesImage result for opposition quotes

Inspired by ALAN SMITH who will speak about "Why Scientists Oppose Cold Fusion"

at a conference at April, 30 invited by Prof. Huw Price
Event already announced by this blog


Edmund Storms' opinion/answer to Alan Smith's presentation to come 

Alan, this is a good question that needs a straight answer. New ideas are always rejected initially. Normally, this rejection is half-hearted and short-lived. In the case of cold fusion, the rejection was clearly orchestrated and has been sustained. 

To understand this strong opposition, we need to consider how the energy resulting from cold fusion would threaten and destabilize the world-wide energy economies.  This economic system is so large and so connected with the economic  life of nations that the threat had to be fought.  In other words, the response is based on self-interest and not on the difficulty in understanding the phenomenon.  The people in charge know full well that given enough resources, science will eventually master LENR. This success would clearly result in economic chaos.  That threat has not changed.  

Evidence for this conclusion can be found when the nations and industries that are now investigating this energy source are examined.  The two countries desperately in need of clean energy, Japan and China, have major programs and the companies developing megacomputer servers are interested. These countries and industries are interested because they have a self-interest that over rides the potential threat.  I predict success by these efforts will force the rest of the countries and companies to develop the energy source as a means of self defense.   In other words, rejection has put off the day of reckoning but it has not eliminated the problem. Therefore, the threat needs to be understood and solved because this energy will eventually be available on a commercial scale.  Unless introduction of this energy into the system is done in an effective way, chaos will surely result.  The energy industry needs to figure out how to prevent this chaos rather than reject the idea because rejection is no longer working. 

Meanwhile, the phenomenon is a challenge to understand in the context of conventional nuclear interaction.  This challenge is attracting young minds who will eventually discover how LENR works.  This process is being accelerated by the increasing amount of information that is easily available on the web. The conventional journals no longer have the power to control information.   In fact, LENR is part of the revolution in understanding that is now underway on the web involving many unconventional ideas.   

So the message is; change is underway, either adapt or die. 

Thanks, dear Ed- the readers had missing you!

Dear Dr. Rossi,

I am returning to your blog after a year and half and am curious to know how far down is the commercialization of your ECAT technology for the average user – what is the schedule? Is it 5 years? Or 10 years down the line? When do you foresee ECAT changing the energy landscape and markets of the world? Is it accurate to surmise that 2023 would be that commercial breakthrough year when electricity prices would become super inexpensive by virtue of your ECAT technology? (have been following the ecat story since the beginning in 2011 when you made a demonstration and have been hopeful ever since of the massive imminent positive impact on the world)

April 23, 2017 at 7:12 AM

Dear Andrea,
It is interesting to see that you support science and asked your readers to pay attention, the more because the majority of science seems to ignore and reject LENR. Many of your followers blame these ignoring and rejecting scientists. They should embrace LENR because of the hundreds of peer reviewed reports that show that nuclear reactions are taking place in metal lattices. Clearly the existing theories do not sufficiently support the fact that LENR can take place at low stimulation energies and without the expected radiation, but that should not be a reason to reject LENR. In fact it is unscientific to ignor these hundreds of LENR reports. You studied science philosophy, I believe. Can you tell us what is wrong with science, why science behaves so unscientific from your perspective?
Thank you and kind regards, Gerard
Andrea Rossi
April 23, 2017 at 7:42 AM

Gerard McEk:
It is not true that the scientific community refuses LENR.
See the work of the scientists that performed or directed or organized and found the funds for the the Lugano report: Sven Kullander was the Chairman of the Swedish Royal Academy of Science, to cite one, all of them are Prof of Physics in universities among the most credited in Europe, all of them worked in CERN of Geneva, Prof Focardi and Prof Bo Hoistad did direct important groups inside the CERN. Nobel Prize laureate Brian Josephson is positively oriented toward LENR and I could add hundreds of prestigious names of scientists (mainly physicists and nuclear engineers) that sustain LENR. Nasa has published positive orientation toward LENR.
On the other side of the playground, it is normal that in the scientific fields there are contrasts. Think to the Relativity theory: at its beginning it was considered a veritable clownerie from many top level physicists. I think the work of my Team has given a strong push to the fact that LENR turned considered worth of strong attention, because we have been fires to produce real energy and our E-Cat is not a theoretical issue, but a product, albeit not yes massively diffused, but in the verge to be so. Nissan has replicated the effect described in my patent, I am aware of another replication on course funded by another industrial giant, one of the biggest industrial concerns of the world, Lockheed Martin has started an R&D adjacent to our field, Bill Gates has funded R&D in LENR field, etc. Obviously our products will reduce the scepticism to the edge, as it happened to the Relativity after the use we make of it anytime we make a phone call with out cell.

Materials science researchers have developed a model that can account for irregularities in how atoms arrange themselves at the so-called 'grain boundaries' -- the interface where two materials meet. By describing the packing of atoms at these interfaces, the tool can be used to help researchers determine how grain boundaries affect the properties of metal alloys and other materials.

Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
The puppets of the so called “ventriloquist of Raleigh” are saying that they received the 50 millions from Woodford because they had in portfolio many intellectual properties, not only yours. But I discovered that this is false! Reading the documents published by the Court, I saw that Woodford invested 50 millions in IH on February 2015 and at that time IH had only your IP in the portfolio! To make more clear the fraud of IH toward you, is the fact that Tom Darden made visits with senior officers of Woodford in your plant, to convince them to pay him the 50 millions and enjoyed the reference of the engineer of JM (Jim Bass) in the same day, during the visit of the same senior officers of Woodford in your plant of Doral.
Isn’t this true?

1) Quantum mechanics is complex enough, for now...
Date:April 21, 2017
Source:University of Vienna
Summary:Physicists have searched for deviations from standard quantum mechanics, testing whether quantum mechanics requires a more complex set of mathematical rules. To do so a research team designed a new photonic experiment using exotic metamaterials. Their experiment supports standard quantum mechanics and allows the scientists to place bounds on alternative quantum theories. The results could help to guide theoretical work in a search for a more general version of quantum mechanics.
