    But Not One Word about LENR.

    But Maybe they Never Heard of it.

    I Guess We could tell them.

    They probably have not heard of it. Unfortunately, we probably cannot tell them. When I or someone with more credibility such as McKubre tries to tell people like this about cold fusion, first we get the impression that they have not heard of it, and second that they will not listen.

  • My link to LENR is gone on the

    CCAG video comments.

    I posted on this video at the same time and so

    far it still stands.

    ABSTRACT:

    Cold fusion (low energy nuclear reaction, LENR) was rejected by mainstream science within a year or so of its announcement in 1989. Despite the rejection, LENR continued to be investigated by many researchers worldwide. The LENR Research Documentation Initiative (LRDI) is underway to mitigate the loss of records of investigators who began their work shortly after the announcement and are now leaving the field. The LRDI began with a pilot project with Edmund Storms. Projects typically include publications, unpublished reports, electronic and hardcopy files, lab descriptions and notebooks, publications by others (LENR library), and photos, recordings and other media. The records found in an LRDI project are supplemented with one or more rounds of recorded and transcribed interviews. Where possible, timelines of LENR research are prepared. Each project is documented with memos for each component followed by a report of the investigator’s researchcontributions. Preservation of these records for additional reviewand analysis as progress is made in the field may contribute to the realization of LENR and its energy benefits. The long-term prospects of humankind will be improved greatly with new sources of abundant, inexpensive and clean energy like LENR.

    I certainly Hope to see LENR helping humans to blossom, and I'm here to help it happen.

    Atomically precise complex oxides containing “stubborn” elements, such as ruthenium, iridium, and platinum, hold tremendous promise as designer quantum materials for exploring novel electronic, magnetic, superconducting, and topological phases owing to their strong spin–orbit interaction. This study shows a method to synthesize such materials by eliminating the major synthesis bottleneck of low vapor pressure and difficulty in oxidation. This study serves as a “proof-of-concept” allowing us to 1) grow Pt, RuO2, and SrRuO3 thin films by supplying Pt and Ru precursors at 65 to 100 °C in a low-temperature effusion cell, as opposed to the several thousand degrees Celsius needed using electron beam evaporators; 2) reveal bulk-like room-temperature resistivity; and 3) ultimately provide pathways to creating atomically precise quantum structures.

  • Maybe of interest for thin films of palladium ?

    Iwamura, Clean Planet Inc. will be interested in this, as he applies thin layers of (nobel) metals stacked upon each other.


    But of course this aims firstly conventional applications like commercial catalysts (e.g. for petrol fueled cars) and proton membranes (for e.g. fuel cells) and chip industry.

  • Translated from Nikkei Business Daily, July 16th 2021:


    Fusion technology gains momentum in US and European startups.

    Research on nuclear fusion, which is regarded as the ultimate energy technology, is accelerating in the world. While the construction of the main body of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), in which major countries such as Japan participate, began last year, the activities of fusion startups aiming to become the first in the power generation business with their own technology are also active. We searched for trends based on data from Astamuse (Chiyoda, Tokyo), which analyzes patent applications and research funding .


    I can´t access the full article from Nikkei unfortunately. This is probably a relevant article.

    Does anyone else have access to the full article (requires a subscription/account)?

  • Thanks to Hideo Kozima for sending me the proceedings of the 21st Proceedings of the 21st Meeting of the Japan CF Research Society 'JCF 21' December 11-12, 2020.


    The meeting was organized by Professor Katsuaki Tanabe (Kyoto University). Due to pandemic of COVID-19, the meeting was held online. In this meeting, 10 presentations were given and 8 papers were submitted to the editorial board. They have been peer reviewed and revised for publication.

    Only electronic versions have been published. Comments and questions from scientists all over the world are welcomed.


    Finally, we would like to thank all the participants and the people who have collaborated in organizing this meeting.

    Introduction


    Space faring, including space exploration, commercialization, and colonization, requires serious levels of power and energy. It is required for in-space and on-body propulsion, habitats and transportation, In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU), manufacturing, life support, robotics, satellites, sensors, and construction. The current power and energy sources being applied and under development include solar energy, chemical fuels, radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG) nuclear batteries, and fission nuclear reactors. There are problems with each of these including reductions in solar intensity farther from the Sun and due to dust, ISRU resource processing requirements, storage, transfer of chemical fuels and the weight, energy density, and safety of the current nuclear approaches [ref. 1]. Alternative energy sources could reduce cost and weight and improve safety, efficiency, and functionality. Particularly interesting alternatives include the recent invention of very high energy density, low weight nuclear batteries that have orders of magnitude greater energy density than RTGs and orders of magnitude less weight than reactors with scalability from milliwatts to tens of megawatts. This approach appears to be capable of powering everything space-related, from small sensors to Vasimir, which would provide fast, 200-day Mars round trips with 6,000 seconds of Isp. Additionally, this battery could power tethers working off the Earth’s magnetic field to, fuellessly, collect space debris and repurpose such via in-space remanufacturing. Additional frontier power and energy approaches include regeneration, utilization of heat losses via various energy conversion methods to improve efficiency, reduce weight, and cost of energy generation and heat rejection systems. Also, there are much more efficient and smaller multi-phase space radiator approaches. There are a myriad of energy storage approaches and beyond chemicalthere are exotics, including positrons, which have orders of magnitude greater energy density than fission with no residual radiation and affordable.This report will first discuss current NASA energetics technologies and then the various frontier space power and energy alternatives mentioned briefly above.Summary of NASA Approaches to Power and Energy for the Moon and Mars Long stays on the Moon suggests a level of infrastructure more substantial than the Apollo era assets delivered during the last time astronauts set foot on the Moon. Those previous missions were short stays lasting a matter of hours and required nothing more than the items onboard the mission modules to safely return the crew back to Earth. Longer term stays [ Figure 1]will require that items be brought by other missions before, during, and after each crewarrives [ref. 2].Even so, some items such as radiation shielding for Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCR) and blast berms may be too massive to bring from Earth. ISRU on the Moon may offer inexpensive substitutes for bringing much needed crew protection from Earth. Three to five meters depth of lunar regolith can shield astronauts from GCR radiation and micrometeorite impacts and provide thermal insulation [ref. 3]. Also, bound chemically with other elements in the lunar regolith are oxides, as much as 40% by mass. They can be processed (with some difficulty) into breathable oxygen and oxidizers for fuel. There are also indications of water on the Moon in some locations.
