    I do not know how we missed this company, but they are solid, well funded, and have some of the most respected names in LENR behind them. Call it what you will...Muon Catalyzed, UDD, whatever...it is all in the LENR family as far as I am concerned. And when they have names like Holmlid, Olaffson, and Gunderson ( who Mizuno recently gifted a reactor to) backing it, they have to be taken seriously. Not much on the internet about them, but here is one translated article about them:


    GU Ventures company UltraFusion Nuclear Power is merged with Norrønt Fusion Energy

    Press Release • May 08, 2018 14:51 CEST


    GU Venture Incubator Company UltraFusion Nuclear Power AB, founded with Professor Leif Holmlid at Gothenburg University, has collaborated with Norrønt Fusion Energy AS. The purpose is to combine companies' results, to resource efficiency and speed up product development of the new merger reactor.


    UltraFusion Nuclear Power AB ("UltraFusion") is based on fusion research by Leif Holmlid, Professor Emeritus at Gothenburg University, and is owned by him and GU Ventures. UltraFusion managed to experiment experimentally with a new, functional small-scale fusion process that works and gives energy over break-even, which means that more energy comes out of the system than it is supplied. It's a unique result that has been very difficult to show earlier. It was published in a scientific journal (AIP Advances 5, 2015) and was attracted to press internationally. After that, work has continued and several new results have been achieved and patented.


    Norrønt Fusion Energi AS ("Norrønt") has in parallel built up its own prototype and demonstrator, partly differently designed but based on the same research. It shows the same unique results. For more than three years, Ultra¬Fusion and Norrønt have had cooperation, which has now led to the merger of companies. The main reason for the merger is that resources should be used in a more efficient manner and that the next version of the fusion reactor can be obtained faster.

    "Leif Holmlid has gone a different way from the major international merger projects with regard to what is called cold merger. Thanks to his choice to do that, it has produced extremely interesting results. Now we want to show that it also works on a larger scale. Together with Norrønt, we will reach the target faster, "says Roger Cederberg, chairman of UltraFusion.


    Dr. Dag H. Zeiner-Gundersen and PhD student Sindre Zeiner-Gundersen lead the research and commercialization in Norrønt in Norway.

    "The Nordic Alliance with Norrønt is now conducting extensive research and commercialization efforts to produce clean and efficient energy from ultra-low deuterium, a form of hydrogen. We are now working on optimizing and scaling up technology for a number of industrial applications, Dr. Day H. Zeiner-Gunder.


    Fusion is an energy source that potentially can make a major contribution to the host's energy and replace coal and oil.

    "A team of scientists at the Chinese Academy of Sciences has recently turned cheap copper into a material that is almost identical to gold. The material is expected to reduce the use of rare, expensive metals in factories. Scientists developed this material by shooting a copper target with a jet of hot, electrically charged argon gas. The fast-moving ionized particles blasted copper atoms off the target. ...


    this new material can’t be used to make fake gold. The reality- its density will remain the same as like as ordinary copper ...


    This new method can inject a large amount of energy into copper atoms and made the electrons more dense and stable. Moreover, it can resist high temperatures, oxidization, and erosion.


    The study is published in the peer-reviewed journal Science Advances on Saturday."


    (making electrons more dense and stable ???)

    The recently discovered deposit is enough to "supply these metals on a semi-infinite basis to the world," the study's authors wrote in the paper.

    There's enough yttrium to meet the global demand for 780 years, dysprosium for 730 years, europium for 620 years, and terbium for 420 years.


    The cache lies off of Minamitori Island, about 1,150 miles (1,850 km) southeast of Tokyo. It's within Japan's exclusive economic zone, so the island nation has the sole rights to the resources there.


    "This is a game changer for Japan," Jack Lifton, a founding principal of a market-research firm called Technology Metals Research, told The Wall Street Journal.


    "The race to develop these resources is well underway."

  • ICCF Conference Page Reorganized


    I put all of the ICCF Conference information on one page at LENR-CANR.org. The indexes are at the bottom of the page, so you can scroll through them, or jump to them from the links at the top of the page. See:


    https://lenr-canr.org/wordpress/?page_id=2130


    This makes it easier to keep track of which volume of the JCMNS has an ICCF Proceedings in it. They are:

  • I left out ICCF-14. I have now added it. The direct link is:


    https://lenr-canr.org/index/Pr…atter%20Nuclear%20Science


    I don't think I have the ICCF-13 book. For some reason I do not have the ICCF-15 papers in my database. I just didn't bother to add them. I might do that sometime.


    It was a lot of work to install these new indexes, but I had to do it anyway because they upgraded my ISP server and everything stopped working. Someday, an upgrade to the internet may wipe out all access to knowledge and end human civilization. Not only did my index system fail, WordPress upgraded to a new method of editing, the Gutenberg Experience, which automatically converted the pages as I wrote them, making it impossible for me to insert links to the indexes. (Hint: you have to use the <!-- wp:shortcode --> block type. If you know that means, you don't need help from me, and if you don't know, you can't do it.)

  • Hi Jed,

    I have a copy of the ICCF-13 proceedings. It was Yuri's conference in Sochi ( jun25-jul1. 2007)

    However the book is very heavy 1.6 kg and long 816 pages.

    Our post office wants 36 GBP to get it to the US. ouch !

    If you want to wait, I'll bring it with me to Bill's conference in September.

    Happy New Year Pete.

  • I don't know much about that demo. I started paying attention with the demos that Lewan promoted and "supervised" which IIRC started some weeks after that one You know, the ones where the dry steam was wet, the hose from the reactor went into a wall, and no blank run or calibration was performed, all the while two huge heaters, one around the ecat and the other occupying its center, were connected to the mains via a controller which Rossi was filmed tweaking during a run to make the water boil. Remember that video? Want to see it again?


    To properly comment upon the Ecat affair, it's essential to know with precision which was the entire sequence of demo and tests performed during the first year of public activity. I post again the following jpeg, which shows all these tests:


    rB93G1X.jpg


    As you can see, 11 tests are listed, all those for which some public information are available. For each of them, a small picture of the tested devices is accompanied by the the date (in red), the name of the main reporter (in green) and some notes (in black)


    The 11 tests are subdivided in three rows, one for each Ecat model.


    The first line refers to the first and most famous Ecat model, which had 4 external band resistors and one internal cartridge resistor for a total electric power of about 1500 W. The calorimetric performances of all these first 3 tests have been documented by Levi.


    The first two tests, held on December 16, 2010 and January 14, 2011, are described as Test 1 and Test 2 respectively in the calorimetric report of UniBo (1&2a), which was published on internet as official document (1&2b). The January 14 demo is the most important and documented Ecat test, the one that let it be known in the world, thanks to the three videos which shows every phase of that event (2c1-2-3).

    (2c3) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSD-NP2Sogc


    The third test, started on February 10, 2011, was an initiative of PD, whose aim was to demonstrate that the energy output was incompatible with any possible chemical source hidden somewhere in the Ecat components, as explained by Levi in a first interview to Lewan (3a). Its results were first anticipated by Rothwell on Vortex (3b), then Lewan published a second interview in which Levi reported the main outcomes of the test (3c). Other information are contained in an Rothwell's analysis posted by Josephson on PhysicsForum (3d) and that presumably he got directly from JR. The only 3 known pictures of this test were published on 22 passi (3e-3f) along with some very interesting details on the experimental data reported in some comments posted by Passerini, who was present during the night between the 10th and 11th of February.

    The second row includes the four public tests which were performed with a smaller version of the previous model. Each one of the four small Ecats aligned on a board were equipped with 2 resistors, an inner cartridge and an external band, probably derived by the dismantled first model. for a total electric power of about 800 W.


    The 4th test, the first with this model, was held on March 29, 2011, and was first documented by Essen and Kullander in a travel report published on NyTeknik (4a), which subsequently was published as a report signed by all the participants (4b). Some more information and photos about this test and, in general, about the reasons of the Swedish professors involvement in the Ecat affair are contained in the Kullander lecture held on November 2011 (4c).

    The next two tests, the 5th (April 19, 2011) and the 6th (April 28, 2011), were documented by Mats Lewan (5a, 6a). His reports are quite good and reveal for the first time the maximum capacity of the yellow pump used in almost every test of 2011. The second test has been also filmed by Lewan. The video (6b) shows the hose which goes into a blue bucket, while the reactor was "stable, … stable".

    The 7th test, the last with the small Ecat, has been documented by Krivit in his videos shot on June 14, 2011. The first video (7a) includes the test and shows the hose going into the wall, from which, after being pulled out, escapes a weak steam flow barely visible on the background of the Levi t-shirt. The second video (7b) shows the calculation made by Rossi in the presence of Focardi which was confirming the results.

    (7b) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrTz5Bq6dsA


    The third row is dedicated to the testing of a completely different Ecat model, a tank type model called also ottoman or Fat-cat. In this case the operating way is totally different and the trick is revealed by its weight, which allows to store a large quantity of heat in order to simulate a prolonged "heat after dead" operation. The main characteristics of this Fat-cat were already outlined by Rossi during a answer-question session hosted by NyTeknik on March 2011: https://www.nyteknik.se/energi…1308#conversion-122831618


    The first documented test of this Ecat model, the 8th of the sequence, was held on July 7, 2011, but was revealed 3 months later, on the eve of another test, by the blog 22passi, which published a report written by Stremmenos (8a).


    (8a) http://22passi.blogspot.com/20…-e-cat-7-luglio-2011.html


    The first Fat-cat to have been publicly shown had been that used in the 9th test, held on September 7, 2011. This test was again documented by Lewan in a technical report (9a) and in a video (9b).


    (9a) https://medier.talentum.com/me…t%20September%207%20(pdf)

    (9b) https://www.nyteknik.se/energi…lf-sustained-mode-6419716


    The last test of a single Ecat, the 10th of the series, was a public demo held on October 6, 2011. It was the 4th and last in 2011 nicely documented by Lewan with the usual technical report (10a) attached to an article published on NyTeknik (10b). There are many videos which shows this test: one shot by Lewan (10c), another published by ecatdotcom (10d). Other two videos are in Italian: one filmed by a RCDC, a local radio, with interviews to many protagonists (10e) and another published by Focus, an Italian main stream scientific journal, whose journalists were present at the event (10f).

    The last and 11th test of the year was the famous 1 MW demo, performed on October 28, 2011, whose results are summarized in the acceptance report signed by Fioravanti, here transcribed by Rothwell on a mail to Vortex (11a). The video shot by Lewan is still available on YouTube (11b).

    Виталий Узиков


    Очень и очень возможно, что восьмилетняя интрига с вопросом о реальности существования «невозможного изобретения» Андреа Росси под названием Energy Catalyzer подходит к финалу.

    В преддверии промышленной демонстрации серийного27-киловатного энергоисточника E-Cat SK, которая состоится 31 декабря в 9 часов утра по времени Нью-Йорка и будет транслироваться по интернету (для этого была даже создана новая web-страница по адресу http://www.ecatskdemo.com/ ), Андреа Росси опубликовал статью о некоторых теоретических основах своего открытия «E-Cat SK и взаимодействие частиц на больших расстояниях» (E-Cat SK and long range particle interactions).

    В этой статье представлено теоретическоеразвитие ранее опубликованных работ и исследуется возможное образование плотных экзотических электронных кластеров в E-Cat SK. Предложены некоторые соображения о вероятной роли эффектов Казимира, Ааронова-Бома и поляризации вакуума в формировании таких структур. Плотные электронные кластеры вводятся в качестве вероятного предшественника для формирования протон-электронных агрегатов в пикометрическом масштабе, подчеркивая важность оценки правдоподобия специальных электрон-нуклонных взаимодействий, как уже предлагалось в совместной работе Карла-Оскара Гулстрёма и Андреа Росси «Nucleon polarizability and long range strong force from σI=2 meson exchange potential». Наблюдаемая изотопическая зависимость конкретной спектральной линии в видимой области спектра плазмы E-Cat, по-видимому, подтверждает наличие специфического протон-электронного взаимодействия в электронном комптоновском масштабе длин волн.

    Правильность представлений А.Росси об открытых им ядерных взаимодействиях подтверждается главным критерием - успешным развитием его технологии. Если проводить аналогию с братьями Райт, то предстоящая презентация E-Cat SK, это не столько показ публике возможности управляемого полета на легком биплане, сколько демонстрация уже серийно выпускаемого реактивного самолета. И продолжая аналогию - чтобы исключить риски потребителя при использовании такой сложной техники, ему предлагается не покупать и управлять летательным аппаратом, а лишь платить за оказываемые услуги - пассажирские и/или грузовые перевозки. А если уйти от аналогий, то А.Росси все проблемы по поставкам и обслуживанию своих установок E-Cat SK оставляет за собой (все установки в собственности его компании Leonardo), а потребителю предлагается платить за тепловую энергию со скидкой не менее 20% от любого другого поставщика в данной местности. Почему только 20%? Ведь скидку можно бы и побольше, компенсируя потери от этого гораздо большим числом клиентов. Причина этого в том, что Росси не только ученый, но также разумный и опытный предприниматель, не стремящийся разрушить устойчивость сложившейся системы на рынке энергоносителей и энергоисточников. И скорее всего такая осторожная стратегия обеспечит плавность его вхождения на этот чувствительный и опасный рынок, что даст возможность занятия соответствующей ниши продавцов энергии без непредсказуемых потрясений и уменьшит количество серьезных врагов. С этим же связано то, что на первом этапе его клиентами смогут стать только серьезные кампании в безопасных странах, гарантирующих защиту от промышленного шпионажа и сохранность его интеллектуальной собственности. Возможно, что успешные исследовательские работы Александра Пархомова и японских ученых по изучению «эффекта Росси» в недалеком будущем также приведут квысокой степени промышленной применимости, но пока Андреа Росси недосягаем в своих разработках.



    It is very, very possible that the eight-year intrigue with the question of the reality of the existence of an “impossible invention” by Andrea Rossi called Energy Catalyzer is coming to a final. On the eve of the industrial demonstration of the 27-kilowatt energy source E-Cat SK, which will take place on December 31 at 9 am New York time and will be broadcast on the Internet (even a new web page was created at http: //www.ecatskdemo .com /), Andrea Rossi, has published an article on some of the theoretical foundations of his discovery "E-Cat SK and long-range particle interactions". This article presents the theoretical development of previously published papers and explores the possible formation of dense exotic electronic clusters in E-Cat SK. Some ideas on the probable role of the Casimir, Aaronov-Bohm effects and vacuum polarization in the formation of such structures are proposed. Dense electron clusters are introduced as a probable predecessor for the formation of proton-electron aggregates on a picometric scale, emphasizing the importance of estimating the likelihood of special electron-nucleon interactions, as already proposed by Carl-Oskar Gulstrom and Andrea Rossi "Nucleon polarizability and long range strong force from σI = 2 meson exchange potential. The observed isotopic dependence of a specific spectral line in the visible region of the E-Cat plasma spectrum seems to confirm the presence of a specific proton-electron interaction in the electron Compton scale of wavelengths. The correctness of the ideas of A.Rossi about open nuclear interactions is confirmed by the main criterion - the successful development of its technology. If we draw an analogy with the Wright brothers, then the upcoming presentation of the E-Cat SK is not so much a demonstration to the public of the possibility of a controlled flight on a light biplane, but rather a demonstration of an already commercially produced jet plane. And continuing the analogy - in order to eliminate the risks of the consumer when using such complex equipment, he is asked not to buy and operate the aircraft, but only to pay for the services provided - passenger and / or cargo transportation. And if you get away from analogies, then A. Rossi leaves all the problems for the supply and maintenance of his installations E-Cat SK (all installations owned by his Leonardo company), and the consumer is offered to pay for heat energy at a discount of at least 20% from any another supplier in the area. Why only 20%? After all, the discount could be more, compensating for the losses from this much more number of customers. The reason for this is that Rossi is not only a scientist, but also a sensible and experienced entrepreneur, not seeking to destroy the sustainability of the existing system in the market of energy carriers and energy sources. And most likely such a cautious strategy will ensure a smoothness of its entry into this sensitive and dangerous market, which will make it possible to occupy the appropriate energy niche without unpredictable shocks and reduce the number of serious enemies. This is also connected with the fact that at the first stage only serious campaigns in safe countries that guarantee protection against industrial espionage and the preservation of its intellectual property can become its customers. It is possible that the successful research work of Alexander Parkhomov and Japanese scientists on the study of the “Rossi effect” in the near future will also lead to a high degree of industrial applicability, but so far Andrea Rossi is out of reach in his developments.
