Quo usque tandem abutere,  LENR, patientia nostra? 
(Until how long, would you, LENR, keep abusing our patience?"
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Other  quotations about patience make me sad. I have lived 40+ years in a communist society. I have waited 27+ years to see how LENR becomes a source of energy.


Step forward the ERV Report is at Rossi and IH and so the possibility that we will learn something about the results soon, has increased. Normally, very interesting things must 
follow. A few ideas-predictions-questions:

a) Who is the ERV? How prestigious, how well known, how vulnerable? He will receive the first tsunami of mud but I hope that in the 24th hour the most ferocious Rossi-killers will find elementary  resources of human decency   and evn a bit of elegance and will not come  with too great minor false accusations and stupid attacks digging for sins in the past life of the ERV. IH's statement was very foggy so it created an opportunity for Steve Krivit to speak about IH's exit from the E-Cat affair (or vice-versa) Following the same direction and tactic, today Brian Ahern declares:

"We will understand Rossi's delusion this week. His ERV report will not be independent or acceptable to IH.
Please do not stand behind him if IH does not."

A better written Statement from IH would be welcome, as well as an agreement of all parties to publish the results/performances/achievement's.

b) It will be really interesting who exactly the ERV is, searching the Web I have met an PhD in nuclear engineering in the Miami are called Lee D. Swanger in the Miami area and have asked him if he did the work for IH and Rossi but got no answer- as normal.

c) IMPORTANT! The ERV is a nuclear engineer and I hope he has proved beyond any doubt that LENR is actually a NUCLEAR EUNUCH - that is strong and very hard working but absolutely unable to emit any ionizing or harmful radiations.
If it generates plenty of excess heat, let's forget any other signs that it is nuclear- indeed we should not mix (confuse) the points of view!!!

d) An other involved party is the Customer- I hope it will come out from the hiding
will accept its own positive role in this story and will tell interesting things.

e) We have to learn about the basic performances. For global COP as you perhaps remember- my prediction was 21. As you know the standard explanation I give my wife for my blunders is "great men make great errors" but now I hope it is not the case.

Very important is the power densities range W/grams fuel here I think 1000 will be a typical or minimal value. Anyway this will learn us to define a genuine Rossi Effect Replication. It is not " You have a bird, I have a bird" issue. Size and weight of the birds matters. There is not OK if, in Europe, you have a bustard I have a robin, or in the US you have a fat turkey and I have a humming bird.

While I cannot release the report publicaly at this time, I can state that I am very pleased with the results.

I hope that Industrial Heat and I will be able to release the report publicaly in the near future.
May God help us for the hard work waiting for us all.
Warm Regards,
Dr Andrea Rossi, CEO of Leonardo Corporation

"The future is gong to be very different from the past. And the only thing that could come along to ameliorate the situation from an energy-food-survival standpoint would be a brand new source of energy. Something along the lines of workable, scalable fusion or if LENR (Low-Energy Nuclear Reaction) pans out and is quickly adopted."



Quantum Hydrogen-Bond Symmetrization and High-Temperature Superconductivity in Hydrogen Sulfide

There seems to be a connection between hydrides metalized by the application of high pressure, superconductivity onset, and the onset of the LENR reaction. It has been determined that the high pressure modifies the nature of molecular bonds which bring about superconductivity.

These new theoretical recently published results suggest that the quantum nature of hydrogen - meaning that it can behave like a particle or a wave - strongly affects the recently discovered hydrogen Sulphur superconductor, a compound that when subjected to extremely high pressure, is the highest-temperature superconductor yet identified. This research is new step towards understanding the underlying physics of high temperature superconductivity.

These new theoretical results suggest that the quantum behavior of hydrogen may be the reason for the onset of superconductivity, as it changes the structure of the chemical bonds between atoms. 

In the strange world of quantum physics, according to a rule known as Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, in any situation in which a particle has two linked properties, only one can be measured and the other must be uncertain.

When a molecule is compressed, the position of the hydrogen atoms is fixed and is less able to move. This makes the momentum more uncertain in these chemical bounds thus gaining energy.

Hydrogen, being the lightest element of the periodic table, is the atom most strongly subjected to quantum behavior. Its quantum nature affects structural and physical properties of many hydrogen compounds. An example is high-pressure ice, where quantum fluctuations of the proton lead to a change in the way that the molecules are held together, so that the chemical bonds between atoms become symmetrical.

The researchers behind the current study believe that a similar quantum hydrogen-bond symmetrisation occurs in the hydrogen sulphide superconductor.

Theoretical models that treat hydrogen atoms as classical particles predict that at extremely high pressures, the atoms sit exactly halfway between two Sulphur atoms, making a fully symmetrical structure. However, at lower pressures, hydrogen atoms move to an off-center position, forming one shorter and one longer bond.

The researchers have found that when considering the hydrogen atoms as quantum particles behaving like waves, they form symmetrical bonds at much lower pressures - around the same as those used for the German-led experiment, meaning that quantum physics, and symmetrical hydrogen bonds, were behind the record-breaking superconductivity.

"That we are able to make quantitative predictions with such a good agreement with the experiments is exciting and means that computation can be confidently used to accelerate the discovery of high temperature superconductors," said study co-author Professor Chris Pickard of Cambridge's Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy.
According to the researcher's calculations, the quantum symmetrisation of the hydrogen bond has a tremendous impact on the vibrational and superconducting properties of hydrogen sulphide. "In order to theoretically reproduce the observed pressure dependence of the superconducting critical temperature the quantum symmetrisation needs to be taken into account," said the study's first author, Ion Errea, from the University of the Basque Country and Donostia International Physics Center.

The discovery of such a high temperature superconductor suggests that room temperature superconductivity might be possible in other hydrogen-rich compounds. The current theoretical study shows that in all these compounds, the quantum motion of hydrogen can strongly affect the structural properties, even modifying the chemical bonding, and the electron-phonon interaction that drives the superconducting transition.

2) Theory and computation have played an important role in the hunt for superconducting hydrides under extreme compression," said Pickard. "The challenges for the future are twofold - increasing the temperature towards room temperature, but, more importantly, dramatically reducing the pressures required."

Metallization of yttrium hydride (YH3) and the perovskite hydrides CaCoH: and CaNiH3 both showing LENR activity produce superconductivity. Another possible route to a metallic hydrogen substitute at significantly lower pressure might be through the ternary hydrides. The lowest pressure induced superconductor is Lithium Aluminum hydride that metalizes at 43 GPa. In a ternary hydride, the heaver that the third element is, the lower that the metallization pressure becomes. Replacing aluminum with a heavier element will reduce the pressure required for metallization making LENR easier to achieve.

Reaction of the ruthenium diamine complex CpRu(tmeda)Cl (tmeda = tetramethylethylenediamine) with LiAlH4 afforded the novel pentaruthenium cluster Cp5Ru5H7 in the tbp geometry. The pentaruthenium cluster 2 shows a dynamic process, including site exchange between the axial and the equatorial metal atoms, via a novel type of pseudorotation.

The reaction of the ruthenium diamine complex CpRu(tmeda)Cl (1; Cp = η5-C5H5) with LiAlH4 afforded the novel pentaruthenium cluster Cp5Ru5H7 (2) in the tbp geometry. The mixed-ligand cluster Cp4Cp*Ru5H7 (4; Cp* = η5-C5Me5) was derived in a similar manner from 1 and Cp*Ru(acac). Complex 2 exhibits a new type of fluxional behavior that involves exchange of the CpRu groups among the axial sites and the equatorial sites. The use of this compound might be why the Lugano fuel contained molybdenum.

(borrowed from Miki Saxon's MAPping Company Success)


  1. A perfect opportunity to make a complete fool out of yourself. Of course,most nobody will care, because never heard of LENR or e-cat.

  2. Mr. Gluck, I believe that you hit the jackpot: I am convinced that Dr. Lee A. Swanger, in behalf of Exponent, Inc. , is the ERV. Although he doesn´t have a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering he:

    - Has a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering (Rossi might have mistakenly understood he had a Ph.D. Nuclear Engineering);

    - He works at Exponent’s Miami, Florida, office;

    - Has capabilities related to Nuclear Plant Services, Intellectual Property (Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights & Trade Secrets) and Aviation & Aerospace Services (lately Rossi stated he was in contact with someone expert in jet engines);

    So, my bet is: the ERV is Exponent, Inc, (, and the professional that made the evaluation is Dr. Lee A. Swanger (

    1. Thanks to Unknown, chances are niot great but an 1 year tets can be supervised only by somebody living in the are where the 1MW plant and the Customer is placed.
      We will see-or not.
      I found this weeks ago and have studied the Company and the Expert.
      Best wishes,


    2. More likely to be Rossi's old friend Fabio Penon... In which case, can it really be considered independent?

      If all we get is another recycled expert, then I would hope you and others leading the information charge challenge the results until we hear from either IH or the customer.

  3. I can state that I am very pleased with the results.
    I go back to when you take a man at his word.And those 11 words sound good to me.

  4. Peter. I am sorry to say that your patience will not be enough. You will not see the dawn of LENR.

    And it does not make you special in any way.

  5. Thanks for all the posting of updates and news, Peter! Continuing to watch and read with interest (and patience)
