No one ever achieved greatness by playing it safe. (Harry Gray) 
LENR is great(ness) too


20 years from now,there will be on the market many kinds of LENR + devices , working with more LENR metals. How many, which ones? Some 6 years ago, Francesco Piantelli has told me: "all the metals from the four transition metal groups are able to work, more or less" and gave some examples of well working metals.
Now in his EuroPatent that was revoked it is written:
The transition metal can be selected from the group comprised of: Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Zn, Y, Zr, Nb, Pd, Mo, Tc, Ru, Rh, Ag, Cd, Lu, Hf, Ta, W, Re, Os, Ir, Pt, Au, lanthanoids, actinoids. Such metals belong to one of the four transition groups - more details given.
Andrea Rossi speaks about fewer LENR metals- recently the list was Ni, Pd, Pt if I understand correctly.
I hope Piantelli is  right and I have all the scientific and moral reasons to believe him.
For the sake of LENR's great future, I hope such fine metals as W and Zr or Cr (Stoyan Sarg's favorite) will work perfectly at industrial level. By the way the central part of my Global LENR Research plan is the testing of a great variety of LENR metals.
If LENR+ is based on nano-clusters and surface dynamics than all transition metals can work.

Frank Acland:
The charges have been calculated by me to last at least 1 year yielding at least the COP granted. The charge substitution is possible, but very long and to recharge, for various reasons, all the plant needs to be stopped. I am confident the charges will last one year.

Silvio Caggia:
Please read the paper Cook- Rossi.
So far I am not able to add other considerations and Prof. Cook and I are continuing our theoretical research. Obviously, he is much better than me, but integrating his theoretical background and my experimentalism we will arrive to write something useful, I think. We have also decided to write nothing else before we can say something conclusive.
He too, as me, is a warrior and he too, as me, hates the coffee shop chattering wherein elementary particles are treated like metal spheres of a pin-ball: “the proton goes here, smacks the Li target and makes a lot of heat, then an electron is captured and bla,bla,bla…”. We want to reach a solid reconciliation with a rigorous mathematical structure.
Warm Regards,


Below is an interesting set of posts on a forum run by CF Woodford Equity Income Fund. They were the fund that Tom Darden mentioned as adding additional; funds in support of his IH fund for investment in new energy opportunities and research.


When one reads the posts, up pops Mary Yugo (aka Potenza, Hody etc: etc: ) and some other likely aliases and companions of his.

What we see is Woodford politely advising the 'why invest in quack science' enquirers, that they Woodford have done their own due diligence on the matter - exceeding 2 years effort. But still those intent on shutting down any attempt at reasoned investigation, have no hesitation in attacking the actions of both Woodford and Tom Darden at Industrial Heat. The attacks belie the reality that investment funds do evaluations of potential new breakthrough science and make decisions on investing. It is what they do.. Yugo not content with letting IH or Woodford do the jobs they exist for, seeks to undermine their raison d'etre.

Whilst the level of insults were kept low at the Woodford blog site. I have seen and read as recently as a week ago where Yugo (aka Potenza) labelled Tom Darden, in a public forum as an idiot (he repeats this often). 

This is what anyone who shows interest in LENR can expect if such interest is public and can be attacked on the net.

Darden is either dishonest or an even bigger idiot than I had thought. I guess he will eventually get to tell us which it is. Maybe he and Levi will tell it all together at a love fest.

In such a fast changing environment, why the XXXX should be LENR old, settled science?


  1. Regarding:

    "Now in his EuroPatent that was revoked it is written:

    Good engineering requires that there is a match between the metal selected for use in the reactor and the frequency of light produced or used inside the reactor that is optimally reflected by that metal.

    For example. nickel, zirconium, or titanium is best for infrared light. A reactor whose operating temperature is about 600C can use nickel best.

    Gold and silver are best used in a reactor that produces visible light. A laser that produces visible light is best used to stimulate these precious metals.

    Palladium, platinum and iridium is used best in a reactor that uses ultraviolet light. Light at that wave length is produced by a very high temperature reactor whose operating temperature is about 1500C. Or in the case of laser stimulation(as per Holmlid), a laser in the UV range will product the best stimulation.

    It is bad engineering to use noble metals in a low temperature reactor.

    If we want to design a reactor that uses a refractory metal like tungsten, we must test that metal to see what type of light is optimally reflected by that metal to see if it is compatible with the heat range of the reactor we intend to design.

    Theory establishes the engineering guideline concerning the match of the reflective properties of the metal to the optimal black body temperature range of the reactor being designed. In this regard, the correct theory of LENR is important to direct the proper engineering guidelines used in building a reactor. Random selection of a substrate metal will lead to uncertain reactor behavior.

  3. Reference:

    Onset of the beta phase in palladium hydride at 300 degrees Kelvin. This phase change occurs as the concentration of hydrogen atoms (yellow) in the palladium (purple) increases. At early stages (the alpha phase), hydrogen atoms randomly populate small interstices in the lattice structure. At a critical point, the lattice expands, allowing hydrogen to cluster at higher density, as visualized here. This image shows the lattice from the (001) direction.

    The term cluster means the formation of nanoparticles.
