    No, I research not about cold fusion, I research on laser-induced hot fusion. It enables us to reach a temperature of between 50 and MK 500 MK in the plasma. This one can measure both the neutron energy distributions (published) and from electron energy distributions (to be adopted soon). It is the temperature that needs to be reached to
    get the core processes that move with sufficient speed. It might seem strange that this is higher than the established temperature in the solar interior, but it depends on the core processes inside the sun goes very slowly.
    My intentions are not crucial for whether our research is correct or not. It is only important what the results are. We have shown in numerous publications that many particles MeV energy emitted from the laser-initiated plasma. This can only be explained simply by the nuclear physics processes such as fusion. More complicated explanations as black holes or the like, we can probably ignore …

    The press release we made from the University of Gothenburg and Ny Teknik written about today are based on three scientific articles published. I guess they are difficult to read for those not accustomed to scientific texts. One of them is published in AIP Advances as free readable text, which means that anyone can read and assess. In that article I show the energy output from the laser-induced process is over break-even, i.e. more energy is generated than that supplied with the laser pulse. This is the first measurement of the break-even in this system, and probably ever. Measurements at NIF in the United States, the world’s largest laser facility has not reached that far. A major concern is that many will try to repeat our experiments have so little knowledge in many areas that are important to be able to do independent experiments.

    I challenge course that I make things up or that I’m totally nuts. The kind of words do not belong in a
    scientific context and falls back on the person who wrote them. Are there no sanctions against such people?

  • That comment from Leif Holmlid is from 2015. Since then I believe he had a stroke, and his research stopped. Has he resumed? Sveinn Olafsson of the University of Iceland worked with him, and presented at the recent ICCF21. Sveinn used to post here on LF.

    The time variation of the collector signals was initially assumed to be due to time-of-flight of the ejected particles from the target to the collectors. Even the relatively low particle velocity of 10–20 MeV u-1 found with this assumption [2123] is not explainable as originating in ordinary nuclear fusion. The highest energy particles from normal D+D fusion are neutrons with 14.1 MeV and protons with 14.7 MeV [57]. The high-energy protons are only formed by the D + 3He reaction step, which is relatively unlikely and for example not observed in our laser-induced D+D fusion study in D(0) [14]. Any high-energy neutrons would not be observed in the present experiments. Thus, ordinary fusion D+D cannot give the observed particle velocities. Further, similar particle velocities are obtained also from the laser-induced processes in p(0) as seen in Figs 4, 6 and 7 etc, where no ordinary fusion process can take place. Thus, it is apparent that the particle energy observed is derived from other nuclear processes than ordinary fusion. It is clear that such laser-induced nuclear processes exist in p(0) as well as in D(0). The low laser intensity used here, of the order of 3×1012 W cm-2 makes it impossible to directly accelerate the particles (especially the neutral ones) to high energies. For example, in Refs. [58,59] more than 1019 W cm-2 was used to accelerate heavy ions to > 1 MeV u-1 energies, thus close to 107higher intensity than used here.



    As of 2017, the Holmlid reaction is far to energetic to be fusion. In other words, the reaction IS NOT FUSION.
