"People come and go. Companies raise and fall. Core values remain."

I take the year 1995 as a benchmark because then I have already published my crazy statements- predictions:
- cold fusion is a form of catalysis;
- cold fusion takes place in active sites;
- cold fusion is based on surface dynamics;
- cold fusion is not entirely nuclear and not nuclear in the usual way;
- the development of cold fusion can be made only by a Technology First strategy

(the last is analogous to: "you can know his real personality only if you help him to build his real personality")

These weird ideas are till fighting- 20 years later for attention and survival. t will be too late for me to see if eventually these ideas will prevail or fall and go in oblivion.
Will they succeed to contribute to the core values of LENR?
LENR is Science- pre-science to be more exact. The core value of science is knowledge and LENR being composite science, of amazing, unprecedented complexity and diversity and its many stages, parts, components, etc. encompassing many scientific specialties - will decisively contribute to solving a very broad area of important scientific problems. My friend AXIL can explain you this much better and I hope he will.

LENR is still not technology but being this is its raison d'etre, speaking tautologically and in French. The standard core values of a technology, specifically for a new and ambitious energy source are:
- quantity- i.e. productivity, intensity, concentration, continuity, availability at demand from Watts toTerrawatts and beyond;
- quality- fitness for all uses, reliability producing heat energy to electric energy, diversity, wide range of temperatures, possibility to replace advantageously all kinds of existing fossil and renewable energy sources- versatility and so on;
- absolutely no harmful impact upon people and environment except, the very existence/presence of energy;so harmless that the environmental protection authorities should have no reasons to bother the users:
- very low cost and price, finding some inherent protection about taxability, available for the poorest people too- worldwide.

Considering these core values, technological progress is shaped by the increasing possibility to make this values real.
We will speak about progress in LENR but PLEASE tell me what do you think about it, from 1995  to this day?

1) Heat generation above break-even from laser induced fusion in ultra dense deuterium by Leif
http://scitation.aip.org/content/aip/journal/adva/5/8/10.1063/1.4928572 http://www.e-catworld.com/2015/08/11/heat-generation-above-break-even-from-laser-induced-fusion-in-ultra-dense-deuterium-leif-holmlid/


Previous results from laser-induced processes in ultra-dense deuterium D(0) give conclusive evidence for ejection of neutral massive particles with energy >10 MeV u−1. Such particles can only be formed from nuclear processes like nuclear fusion at the low laser intensity used. Heat generation is of interest for future fusion energy applications and has now been measured by a small copper (Cu) cylinder surrounding the laser target. The temperature rise of the Cu cylinder is measured with an NTC resistor during around 5000 laser shots per measured point. No heating in the apparatus or the gas feed is normally used. The fusion process is suboptimal relative to previously published studies by a factor of around 10. The small neutral particles H(0) of ultra-dense hydrogen (size of a few pm) escape with a substantial fraction of the energy. Heat loss to the D gas (at <1 mbar pressure) is measured and compensated for under various conditions. Heat release of a few W is observed, at up to 50% higher energy than the total laser input thus a gain of 1.5. This is uniquely high for the use of deuterium as fusion fuel. With a slightly different setup, a thermal gain of 2 is reached, thus clearly above break-even for all neutronicity values possible. Also including the large kinetic energy which is directly measured for MeV particles leaving through a small opening gives a gain of 2.3. Taking into account the lower efficiency now due to the suboptimal fusion process, previous studies indicate a gain of at least 20 during long periods.

2) What exactly is the Mme Curie Reactor - a direct source of electricity?

I confirm: The new Hot Cat is NOT a substitute of the “Lugano” Hot Cat or of the low temperature E-Cat. It is a completely different thing. While the Hot Cat and the LT E-Cat will be destined to industrial applications, the “M.me Curie” will be destined to a completely different kind of utilization, very much popular. I will give more details, obviously, only after we will have made enough tests to see if it is reliable.
Warm Regards,


How can we measure progress towards development?

    The Paul Brown Resonant Nuclear Battery is an ideal EMF harvester design to take advantage the magnetic beams produced by the SPPs. The beta decays usually used to produce the EMF need not be present since SPPs produce magnetic power directly and act as ideal generators of EMF motive force. Anyone who is interested in LENR should look into the theory and engineering related to the Paul Brown Resonant Nuclear Battery. This technology will still support the Cat and Mouse drive concept. Rossi is realty something, How he thinks of these things is amazing.

    1. Axil, thanks for that link - yet another very interesting aspect of this story.

      Thanks - DSM
