A problem clearly stated is a problem half solved. (Dorothea Brande)

Actually this is quite a truism for now, however LENR's problem(s) are very far from being clearly stated.


a) An old LENR MetaManagement suggestion;

"What is the nature, rise and dynamism of the active sites are, is an open question. A very rapid and massive information influx from the field of science and technology of catalysis could be useful to get the answer(s)."
Leslie Case followed it and succeeded in part (small), Andrea Rossi succeeded and created LENR+ but this has happened late and I am convinced he never read my paper. However the catalysis-LENR connection is obvious for anybody thinking scientifically-technologically. Today, for example I got the inspiring paper
see more at AXIL's column, c).  
This connects us to the DGT Principle of LENR+ "make hydrogen more reactive and nickel more receptive" Rossi and DGT have applied some methods to treat nickel-
probably similar. I have suggested a few years ago to experimentalist friends to treat the metal with hydrogen that was bubbled through hot mercury, so very small islands of amalgam will form on the surface. The idea was not tested and not patented.

b) Discussion/dispute with Ed Storms

Yesterday Ed has stated this:

Ed: Here you focus on the lack of reproducibility. Yes, this is a problem both for the PdD and NiH systems.  In fact, LENR using PdD has been replicated far more often than energy production using NiH.  In my case, I have made dozens of attempts to replicate Rossi with no success. In contrast, I can often replicate LENR using PdD.   Replication requires knowing the important variables required to form the NAE. We do not have this knowledge, which I trying to get. Knowing were to look is the first requirement.  I see very little interest being focused on where I think the knowledge can be found. 

Yes, the NAE is a rare condition. But I go beyond that simple statement. I have suggested the nature of the NAE, how it can be created, and its function.  Why do you ignore what I propose?


Everything is OK, with the following exceptions:
- I don't know which are the important (and actionable too!) variables for making PdD replicable- there too many discussed usually and the sad reality is that the reliability is low, no sure recipe exist (see for example the famous cathode 64 of Energetics)

For NiH, Piantelli- in patents and papers has described some essentials: necessity of stimulation; the must of deep degassing, the art of building proper nanostructures 
in a logically consistent mode.

- please tell where to look, exactly; are there clear instructions causally correlated with you nanocracks- hydroton theory? I have not understood exactly how this worked in your current experimental program- what will be the peak performances?

- please do not accuse me that I ignore what you propose. It can be my fault but I do not understand well what you propose for PdD per se and even less what you propose based on Pd D wet at 70C for NiH at 550 C or at 1200C+ Can you please tell
in principle obviously not in detail?

Questions to Ed
- what do you think about the catalysis paper described above at a), as 3) at news and
by AXIL in his column at c) ? Can we try it with Pd?
- what do you think about paper of Numata- 15 at JCF- see list? I have spoken more times about nano-vortices as NAE to you, this is something like that

c) More-than-interesting news from Japan

See please at News, paper 1) by Steve Krivit  about Japan's Leadership in LENR (to be discussed) and 2) information regarding the Event of next month- the Japanese
Cold Fusion Congress- JCF-16- the information comes from the Japanese LENR leader, Akito Takahashi.

Leadership means here that the Japanese government is increasingly LENR friendly, more and earlier than other countries.

THE GREAT QUESTION- is: will be the Japanese researchers- scientists and technologist be able to create a competitive LENR technology- till 2020?

The national LENR program sponsored by NEDO has as main points for the near future:

A) development of a new calorimetry system at Tohoku University with the assistance of Technova; 
B) joint experiments to analyze for excess heat using nano-metal composite samples with gas-loading experiments at Kobe University and other laboratories; 
C) materials science research at Nagoya University and Kyushu University; and 
D) evaluation and survey studies by Technova and Nissan.

7) Andrea Rossi- an opinion
November 25th, 2015 at 10:03 AM

Electron capture in LENR is a titanic stupidity.
The more sophisticated the descriptions, the more ridiculous the explications. Electron capture has been observed in atoms with nuclea having a strong excess of protons, which is never the case of LENR . I edited your comment, as you saw, eliminating your reference to the name of the Competitor that said the usual trivialities regarding the “electron capture”: I never comment the work directly related to our Competitors.
Warm Regards,

a) About Fulvio Fabiani's interview:

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.

DGT has also seen these EMF balls inside their reactor. These are the bubbles that Dr, Kim reported as exploding in a Bosenova.

b) About mobile NAE:

Energetic particle shower in the vapor from electrolysis

(Dated: December 19, 2004)

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. 

c) About LENR+ and enhanced catalysis

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.

Mizuno 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. 

d) Caution in LENR

How can the LENR NAE pass through marerial 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.

  3. Hi Peter, it's just spam. People like this Leslie Lim just say something generic like "great article" and then post a link to their website to generate traffic to their website.
