Discussion with Ed Storms 

Ed was nice and has summarized  the discussion in 6 paragraphs; I will answer now to the one in which the points of view are in the sharpest contradiction

4)You reject hundreds of studies of PdD made over 26 years that have been replicated many times. Instead, you favor of a few studies of Ni-H made under very nonscientific conditions, not reported in detail, and not replicated in order to support the claim for transmutation.  You ignore the simple arguments showing that transmutation can not account for the amount of claimed energy.  I'm at a loss to understand why you do this.

It is not correct to the verb "reject"- I have followed those PdD studies with interest however with increasing discontent due to the results ; can you deny they were; weak, unreliable and transient? How fast was the progress- say in the last 20, 10, 5 years.Replication includes the replication of bad reproducibility- and when I say bad, it is bad indeed. Was it usually around 20% or 80%? Does this make good to their "scientific" character as far as we cannot give a causal explanation of unreliability- except a semantic one as NAE is a 'rare condition'? The results were more due to the merits, skills genius of the experimenters; I daresay that it is something rotten in PdDland.
As regarding NIH I think Piantelli's results are scientific and now we see, perhaps indeed not scientifically enough results in the enhanced NiH systems that are promising- of great interest for a technologist like me.
It is natural that people are unable and unwilling to accept that they were barking at the bad tree, let's hope the nickel tree is much better. If not, finita la commedia.

PS Ed, I think this paper could inspire you:

    Within months, hopefully, we will see 5 kW AuKW generators, 5 kW GDS generators. And on the utility-scale end, we'll see KPP plants, E-Cat cold fusion generators, and ERR Fluxgenerator systems available. Not to mention the wild card QMoGens that come in just about any size.

    Cooperative internal conversion process
    Péter Kálmán, Tamás Keszthelyi

    (Submitted on 23 Nov 2015)
    A new phenomenon, called cooperative internal conversion process, in which the coupling of bound-free electron and neutron transitions due to the dipole term of their Coulomb interaction permits cooperation of two nuclei leading to neutron exchange if it is allowed by energy conservation, is discussed theoretically. General expression of the cross section of the process is reported in one particle nuclear and spherical shell models as well in the case of free atoms (e.g. noble gases). A half-life characteristic of the process is also determined. The case of Ne is investigated numerically. The process may have significance in fields of nuclear waste disposal and nuclear energy production.

      Energetic particle shower in the vapor from electrolysis

      This article informs us about the nature of the NAE. The experiment related in this article uses CR-39 particle detectors to show the production of energetic particles in the mobile NAE afloat in the vapor above an electrolytic LENR cell. This NAE has becomes mobile after it has become detached from its point of creation somewhere on the lattice of the electrodes within the cell as it moves upward in the vapor produced by the action of electrolysis and the heat that this electrode produces. This NAE produces hundreds of thousands of charged particles as it floats upward out of the cell. This reaction most probably produces alpha particles as the NAE rises on the vapor currents upward out of the cell. The analysis in the article finds that this NAE is a point source of these alpha particles by correlating the angles of the pits produced by the charged particles as the NAE rises. This behavior implies that the NAE supports a continuous and long lasting LENR process that precedes over a considerable duration of time. This mobile type of NAE must decouple from its point of creation on the lattice of the electrode and floats on air currents like a particle of dust. The mesoscopic NAE must be massive in size to be so driven by molecules of air and water vapor.

      Atom-sized craters make a catalyst much more active[/quote]

      Both the Rossi E-Cat patent and DGT plainly state that making the nickel micropaticles more reactive by enhancing the surface of those particles with nanometer sized holes is critical in making the particles more reactive in the LENR process.

      Rossi does this in the fuel preparation process by producing steam explosions to create holes on the surface of the nickel particles and and smaller particles from the material blown out of those holes.

      DGT has stated that they made their nickel microparticles more reactive by removing material from the particles in a secret process.

      Mizono prepares the surface of his particles by exposing the particles using an electric arc to pit the surface of his nickel or palladium.

      The article that I reference above validates this concept in a process that erodes the surface of a catalysts by hitting that surface with ionized argon atoms removing sulfur atoms from that compound.

      Replicators of the Rossi reaction should draw a lesson from this method used by many successful developers of the LENR reaction which calls for pitting the surface of the microparticles that they use with atomic sized nanoholes to enhance that catalytic capability of their powders.

      I would like to suggest the use of my favorite electrode design to produce either a beam of electrons or protons for the job of creating nanoholes in your nickel micropowder.

      The Focus Fusion project sets up a plasmoid by using a special type of electrode that produces proton and electron beams from disrupted hydrogen and projects those protons and electrons from each end of the electrode.

      The Electrode


      The Beams


      Of course, the LENR replicator can use a particle accelerator of his own design to produce subatomic particles that generate the holes on the surface of his nickel particles.

    3. How can the LENR NAE pass through material to float in the air?

      There have been reports from R. A. Oriani, J. C. Fisher. Mark LeClair, Proton 21 experiments, and Keith Fredericks among others that have evidence to support the observation of the escape of the NAE from the reactor and the penetration of CR-39 plastic radiation detection strips. These reports include penetration by the NAE through plastic, black paper, glass, and PVC pipe. Like a bubble, the NAE can float freely in the air and can move a long way if driven by air currents.

      Like any alpha emitter, the mobile NAE may be injurious to health if it can enter the body and catalyzes nuclear reactions that generate alpha particles, The NAE is a ball of intense light of unparallel strength. This form of light will pass through material that will usually be somewhat transparent to light in the XUV frequency range. This includes paper, plastic, plexiglass, glass, PVC piping, and hot alumina tubes. The LENR NAE may be dangerous if it exits the glass electrolytic cell even if the cell is closed, the PVC based cavitation reactor or the hot alumina nickel reactor.

      Ash and transmutation products from LENR reactions might catalyzed nuclear reactions outside of the reactor if exposed to the open air.

      Water, or metal containment may be required to keep the NAE confined and away from the possibility of inhalation until the NAE has had enough time to decompose.

      Fulvio Fabiani states:

      "We have it all filmed, which still cannot be disclosed. We have photographs of creatures that emit pure light that have completely melted the reactor down, all in a very quite way. You just turn off the stimuli system and the reaction is switched off. It’s impressive."

      The small creatures of light are mobile NAE made of balls of XUV light. These are SPPs that have decoupled from the structure of the reactor and have become mobile.
