Brian Ahern: Parkhomov replication

  • Three researchers are working in Acton MA Jeff Driscoll, Andrew Anselmo and Brian Ahern sealed two alumina tubes with Ni-255,

    Both tubes contained 1.0 grams of Ni-255. The second tube also had 0.1 grams of NaAlH2. This compound liquefies at a lower temperature than LiAlH4.

    The tubes are mounted side by side in a tube furnace with a 30mm ID. Thermocouples (K) mounted on the outside will give continuous reading similar to a DTA system. We will be able to detect phase changes by differentiating the TC output.

    We hope to run on Sunday.

    If we see something interesting, we will load a third tube with 0.1 grams of LiAlD4. That could result in a BANG!

  • Exciting Brian!
    According to Axil EM radiation may play an important role to both the initiation and the damping of the LENR effect. For this reason the impedance of the heating coil and control circuit may be important and should be as low as possible. Because of this reason you should not drive your heating circuit via a transformer. If you need to use a transformer you may put a small capacitor (High Frequency) over the heating coil. That may be important to damp the LENR runaway and avoid hot spots and exploding reactors.
    BTW, from next week Monday onward I will guide four University students (Technical Physics) with a similar attempt. I will be following your attempts closely and wish you all the luck.

  • <p>What is Ni 255, is that the number of a catalyst?</p>

    is it Filamentary NickelPowder Type 255 ?…el_Powder_Type_255_US.pdf


  • Cracking the cold fusion puzzle... Better late than never!

    The hot-cat replications opens everyone's hand.

    A bit of prose... Enjoy.


    The nest instinct through
    True imaginings delight
    Leads to what’s right

    Color the lining new
    Tufts soft and light
    Bits shiny bright

    Into completion it grew
    Winged creatures alight
    Home for the night


    1. To come down and settle, as after flight.
    2. To come by chance: alight on a happy solution.
    3. To dismount from a horse or vehicle.

    Word Origin and History (long before 'streetlights' or the 'new fire')


    “on fire” early 15c., apparently from M.E. aliht , pp. of alihton (O.E. on-lihtan )

    “to light up” also “to shine upon” [Middle English alighten , from Old English ālīhtan : ā- , intensive pref. + līhtan

    "to relieve of a burden" (from līht , light ; see light 2 ).] (orig. an animal mount) of weight.

  • Bonsoir.
    Pourquoi ils ne mettent qu'1gr dans le réacteur. Avec 10 ou 100gr l'effet serait plus visible. Quand on chauffe, c'est pas seulement fourni au mélange qui réagit, mais à tout le réacteur. L'énergie mesurée en sortie est celle que retransmet le réacteur + l'énergie de la réaction de 1gr.
    chauffer 1gr 10gr ou 100gr ne demande pas beaucoup plus d'énergie en entrée.
    Si on est capable de voir un surplus d'énergie avec 1gr, avec 100gr, on va avoir un retour 100x plus élevé.
    On n'est pas capable de chauffer uniquement le réactif, la chaleur va au réacteur et à ce qu'il contient.
    L'intérêt c'est que d'avoir un cop beaucoup plus élevé permet d'enlever le doute d'une erreur au niveau de la calorimétrie.

    çà devrait meme fonctionner tout seul si ce n'est qu'une question de chaleur pour mettre en route l'effet lenr.

  • çà serait pas plus simple de répliquer l'expérience d'arata ?
    du palladium en poudre, du deutérium gazeux ,dans une boite, on n'apporte pas d'énergie au départ, pas de problème de calorimétrie, c'est l'évidence d'une réaction.
    Et elle est tellement facile à mesurer et forte qu'elle exclue une réaction chimique.

    Now, esteemed Physics Professor Yoshiaki Arata of Osaka University in Japan claims to have made the first successful demonstration of cold fusion. Last Thursday, May 22, Arata and his colleague Yue-Chang Zhang of Shianghai Jiotong University presented the cold fusion demonstration to 60 onlookers, including other physicists, as well as reporters from six major newspapers and two TV studios. If Arata and Zhang´s demonstration is real, it could lead to a future of new, clean, and cheap energy generation.

    In their experiment, the physicists forced deuterium gas into a cell containing a mixture of palladium and zirconium oxide, which absorbed the deuterium to produce a dense "pynco" deuterium. In this dense state, the deuterium nuclei from different atoms were so close together that they fused to produce helium nuclei.

    Evidence for the occurrence of this fusion came from measuring the temperature inside the cell. When Arata first injected the deuterium gas, the temperature rose to about 70° C (158° F), which Arata explained was due to nuclear and chemical reactions. When he turned the gas off, the temperature inside the cell remained warmer than the cell wall for 50 hours, which Arata said was an effect of nuclear fusion.

    While Arata´s demonstration looked promising to his audience, the real test is still to come: duplication. Many scientists and others are now recalling the infamous 1989 demonstration by Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons, who claimed to produce controlled nuclear fusion in a glass jar at room temperature. However, no one - including Fleischmann and Pons - could duplicate the experiment, leading many people to consider cold fusion a pseudoscience to this day.

    But one witness at the recent demonstration, physicist Akito Takahashi of Osaka University, thought that the experiment should be able to be repeated.

    "Arata and Zhang demonstrated very successfully the generation of continuous excess energy [heat] from ZrO2-nano-Pd sample powders under D2 gas charging and generation of helium-4," Takahashi told New Energy Times. "The demonstrated live data looked just like data they reported in their published papers [J. High Temp. Soc. Jpn, Feb. and March issues, 2008]. This demonstration showed that the method is highly reproducible."

    In addition, researchers will have to repeat the experiment with larger amounts of the palladium and zirconium oxide mixture in order to generate larger quantities of energy.

  • Amusing how easily faith is strengthened by these kind of announcements: "replication". Of course - cop 1, where is the matter? add a zero on the right and you'll be fine. Like for the "soon on the market" announcement, surely strengthened by replica announcement - might be even next year, is not it? Since years.

    By the way, patent rejected on USA side - what a pity, it must have been a conspiracy even NASA/MIT/Uppsala/UniBo/ could not avoid...
