“Cold fusion came before its time. It is too complex, too new, too unexpected, too messy, too multifaceted, too dynamic, too nonlinear and too weird to be really understood and controlled at the time of its discovery. It cannot be understood and developed commercially only based on nuclear physics, it is more.." 
(This Blogger himself, exactly 250-th repetition of these ideas with zero success, negative impact and whispering but hostile feedback. It can not be worse, says the optimist)

Here on this blog it was many times stated by my friends that LENR+, the technologically promising  variants include nanoplasmonics. In this spirit please see what comments Axil about the achievements of Shafeev: 

"Shafeev will suffer neglect and his research will be ignored because his work flies in the face of the common wisdom of nuclear physics. Even more deeply, there lies a problem with Quantum Mechanics, it’s the fact that there are two many versions of this subject. 
It is said that experiment is king but if results don’t support the common wisdom, experimental results are ignored.
There exist a number of contending schools of thought about quantum mechanics, differing over whether quantum mechanics can be understood to be deterministic, which elements of quantum mechanics can be considered "real", and other matters. Shafeev will suffer greatly from what some few people think is real and what many others think is only data.
But most importantly, Shafeev is dealing with LENR. This makes his life hard by association, not by name but the miracles that he produces. His experiments are pure and simple. They always produce the LENR effect and they strip LENR to is raw essentials.
LENR only occurs when the LASER flashes so the LENR effect is controllable and works deliberately in Shafeev’s experiments. In Shafeev’s experiments, the cause of LENR are clearly on display. It is simply light and nanoparticles. You can’t get more basic than that. 
How the vacuum and quantum mechanics work is of special interest to philosophers of physics, as physicists continue to show a strong interest in the subject. As far as Shafeev is concerned, this war of ideas between these philosophies looks like clear experimental evidence is being and will continue to be ignored."

Communication and collaborations are pillars of my professional life; I have asked first two good Russian friends to facilitate our contact with Shafeev. I have no complexes, however a blog is not an institution and it is now my unique affiliation.
Shafeev is professor at the Wave Research Center of A.M. Prokhorov General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.However I know- it is ana axiom- reallly great scientists are nice  & friendly.
Reality has combined LENR and Nanoplasmonics, let's do the same- and we need help.
NOTE- as predicted, Shafeev has answered immediately and now I am studying his papers kindly sent by him. S A. Koestler would say, we have to build a creative bisociation between his sort of powerful nanoplasmonics and LENR's overly complex one.
See a few Shafeev papers below.

Steven N. Karels:
No, the E-Cats can be built to make a specific amount of energy and this limit cannot be overcome.
You cannot turn a 20 kW E-Cat into an E-Cat with higher power. But you can make a 1 GW plant with modules of 250 kW each, theoretically.

Yes, the Customer is measuring independently the energy that arrives to his plant, both with gauges and ( more important) with the operation of his manufacturing system, which needs our energy to work.
The measurements give similar results, within the margin of error of the instrumentation, but, as I said, what counts more than all is the FACT that the energy we supply him makes his plant work as expected. Calorimetic measurements now are coupled with manufacturing efficiency measurements, which put in evidence the very result that really counts: is our Customer making money with our plant or not ? This is the most important issue. If the Customer does not make money with our plant, he will not get solace if we will present him good calorimetric results, however obtained…
Data regarding the COP will be given after the completion of the tests and the final results can be either positive or negative.
Warm Regards,

The abstracts of papers received from Prof. Shafeev- are not LENR but very remarkable and inspiring  a branch of science:

Long-Term Variation in Nuclide Activities under Laser Ablation of Metallic Targets in Aqueous Solutions of Uranium Salt 

N. A. Kirichenko*, A. V. Simakin**, and G. A. Shafeev*** 
Wave Research Center, Prokhorov General Physics Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, ul. Vavilova 38, Moscow, 119991 Russia Received December 26, 2013 

Abstract—The long-term variation in the activities of nuclides belonging to the uranium series after laser irradiation of metallic targets (Au, Be, Al, Ti) in aqueous solutions of UO2Cl2 has been experimentally investigated. It is found that the activity of 234Th, in contrast to unirradiated solution, continues to increase for 50 to 60 days after laser irradiation and, having reached a stationary level, remains at it for a long time (about 1 yr). The activity dynamics is modeled theoretically on the assumption that a fraction of 238U in the irradiated solution is under peculiar conditions, so that its half-life is much shorter than that of spontaneous α decay of this nuclide under normal conditions. Possible mechanisms of variation in the shape of the potential barrier for α-particles in the presence oDOI: 10.3103/S1541308X14020010

Application of copper vapour lasers for controlling activity of uranium isotopes 
E.V. Barmina, I.A. Sukhov, N.M. Lepekhin, Yu.S. Priseko, V.G. Filippov, A.V. Simakin, G.A. Shafeev

Beryllium nanoparticles are generated upon ablation of a beryllium target in water by a copper vapour laser. The average size of single crystalline nanoparticles is 12 nm. Ablation of a beryllium target in aqueous solutions of uranyl chloride leads to a significant (up to 50%) decrease in the gamma activity of radionuclides of the uranium-238 and uranium-235 series. Data on the recovery of the gamma activity of these nuclides to new steady-state values after laser irradiation are obtained. The possibility of application of copper vapour lasers for radioactive waste deactivation is discussed. Keywords: copper vapour laser, beryllium nanoparticles, target ablation, gamma activity, radionuclides.

Quantum Electronics 44 (8)  791 –792  (2014)

Abstract.  Experimental data are presented on the laser-induced beta decay of caesium-137. We demonstrate that the exposure of a gold target to a copper vapour laser beam (wavelengths of 510.6 and 578.2 nm, pulse duration of 15 ns) for 2 h in an aqueous solution of a caesium-137 salt reduces the caesium-137 activity by 70%, as assessed from the gamma activity of the daughter nucleus 137mBa, and discuss potential applications of laser-induced caesium-137 decay in radioactive waste disposal.
