No theory is good unless it permits, not rest, but the greatest work. No theory is good except on condition that one use it to go on beyond.André Gide
I want to add that in matter of cold fusion/LENR the same principle as for medicines applies- "primum non nocere" i.e. "first do not harm". Realistic theories here are (will)bunches of different sub-theories combined so the existent ones explain only small fragment of the phenomena and are not best for predicting. "Do no harm" refers mainly to the trend of some theories to dominate and displace the other theories, even with the price to become an obstacle for the progress.A plethora of theories will be at ICCF-19.If you started, continue to think about ICCF-19! I have/want to tell what I think about the theory papers to be presented at ICCF-19. The first thing to do with them is to classify them. There are "local" theories made directly for LENR and Great theories that explain everything including LENR. I will try an ad-hoc taxonomy; after presentation, this will probably change somewhat

A. Local theories, familiar ( we know the theorists for many years and we ahve followed the development of his brainchildren)

The E-Cat this week has been good, with very, very extended ssm periods. I prefer to give data regarding the COP after the end of the test.

Mark Saker:
It is the SSM that has increased and, consequently, the driving time is decreased.
Warm Regards,

Marco Serra:
Good question. The improvements are due mainly to the fac that for the first time we can operate for a very long period, 24/7 the 1 MW E-Cat Lady. We are learning to know Her better, using Her. We can operate changements using the regulation of the control system; surely, as you correctly say, we cannot make major modifications with the E-Cat in operation.
About the final results: honestly, I think that the final results could be positive, but also negative, even if the more we advance through the test path, the more the probability of a successful output increase; at the moment I give 50.1% positive chance, 49.9% negative.
I am 64 years old, working from more than 40 years, made about 1,500 plants of various kind, seen too many problems arise from new plants not to be worried of what from the next future will come. My foreseeable future is tomorrow: beyond that I need a cristal ball. That’s why I stay with Her 16 hours per day, included Christmas and Easter.
Warm Regards,

If/when he will start telling about COP values, daily, weekly, monthly it would be much better.

How to Make a Parkhomov-style LENR Reactor (March 26 2015 version)

Brian Ahern: Parkhomov replication:

CLEAN PLANET (Japan) Press Release:

 It sounds encouraging, I will be (if) only 83 years in 2020:
Clean Planet Inc. and Tohoku University are launching “Clean Energy Research Lab” at Tohoku University on April 1st, 2015. The mission of the “Clean Energy Research Lab” is to develop a clean, safe and abundant form of energy for our global community. This new research division will be devoted to developing practical applications for clean energy using LENR, Low Energy Nuclear Reaction, (a.k.a. Cold Fusion). This is the first official research division created for condensed matter nuclear science and its application in Japan. We are determined to bring the application models from this division to the market before the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. 

ZPEnergy about LENR Cities

Water in Space as an Analogy to Understand Hot and Cold Fusion (Mats Danielsson)


I note that there is a goodly number of papers covering RF emissions from the deuterium systems scheduled for the ICCF-19 conference. I believe that RF emissions is a negative sign or influence for the LENR reaction because this EMF emission robs power from the reaction and broadcasts that power to the far field. It is analogues to a poorly timed gasoline engine that produces little useful output power and lots of unburned fuel. The deuterium reaction is prone to produce this LENR reaction pollutant because of the nuclear spin characteristic of deuterium. Deuterium is far more NMR active than hydrogen... protium (name rarely used, symbol 1H) is. The best LENR hydrogen isotope for the LENR reaction is the most NMR inactive with a zero nuclear spin.


  1. Magnetic control of LENR.

    Rossi has stated that the input power to his reactor must be supplied using an AC source in order for the LENR reactor to be viable. Putting this together with the revelation from Piantelli that pressure change is required to fire up the LENR reaction can lead us to speculate about the reaction mechanisms involved connecting these seemingly unrelated revelation. But these tidbit of clues can be conceded within a theoretical context.

    To start with, nanoparticle production in a supercritical medium is activated by a pressure and/or temperature change. Hydrogen is a supercritical medium in which hydrides of lithium and/or aluminum are dissolved. A change in pressure will produce nanoparticles of lithium and/or aluminum if a pressure wave of sufficient strength is broadcast through the hydrogen gas.

    Nanoparticles are the mainstay of the LENR reaction since they produce SPPs within any aggregation of nanoparticles. An alienating current will produce a magnetic pressure wave in the hydrogen gas that will result the formation of a sound wave in the hydrogen with a wave length equal to the wavelength of the AC current that generates the sound wave pulse.

    Parkhomov currently uses a 50 cycle sine wave. Rossi uses a more complicated pulsed waveform with a more rapid rise in voltage that would produce a more powerful acoustic wave.

    This speculation regarding the shape of the input current waveform and the production of nanoparticles raises the possibility to allow a intelligent control circuit to control the LENR reaction by adjusting the production of hydride nanoparticles so that these nanoparticles are either stopped from forming to slow the reaction or to increase the strength of the reaction by adjusting the shape of the pulse to produce a more powerful acoustic wave in the hydrogen gas. This reaction control to support the power of the LENR reaction can be carried out while keeping the input power constant using an intelligent alternating current waveform generator.

  2. Axil makes good points. Also the magnetic field changes the allowable energy states in a coherent system, which the nano particles may well constitute. Thus low energy states which are in change may allow resonant nuclear changes that would not normally be observed.

    I think Norman Cook's nuclear structure and how it is influenced by magnetic field strength will be of great interest in predicting conditions favorable for LENR to occur.

    Calculation of the spin states of nuclei, which have relatively small differential energies,may allow correlation with observed soft x-rays and other EM radiation observed in LENR and other phenomena without theoretical explanation.

    With these ideas I look forward to the presentations of Peter Hagelstein, Meulenberg, Vysotskii, Cook and Dallacasa. Others that involve the prediction of magnetic fields, such as Axil suggests is associated with SPP's of nano particles, are also of interest.

    The whole lineup of papers is significant. I would like to see some that address spin coupling of the nuclei and electrons in nano particles. Meulenberg's paper may come closest to this area of small energy transitions and be consistent with the nature of the LENR without its gammas or energetic particles.

  3. Rr? Possible preference for "zero spin unit," We seem to forget that the H2 molecule is actually an "isomer" of the Deuterium atom and may be a unit which could be adopted into other atoms, e.g. Nickel atoms, by what would be analogs of Lewis Acid Base reactions. ( A "mechanism" would be electron-pair acceptance into the atom, followed by, or concurrent to, proton-pair acceptance into the nucleus. The expectation with NI atoms would be that the active NI would be NI+ or NI++.)...This is in no way intended to be in conflict with other comments, .
