ABSTRACT translated from Chinese
Nickel (such as heating, discharge, etc.) can react with hydrogen under certain conditions and produce heat, light effect the exception. Its release of light and heat may be greater than the input energy, the test in the past due to poor reproducibility did not attract our attention. The present invention uses a nickel hydrogen, lithium or three-element compound containing three elements as a raw material, prepared using a high-temperature transparent quartz glass or other transparent refractory material into the reaction chamber, the excitation current through the fuel react. This method solves the problem to reproduce the reactor to produce large amounts of heat and light, in which light energy through the concentrator photovoltaic device into electricity reflux to the reactor, the heat through the heat exchange system output. Abundant materials used throughout the system, the structure is simple and easy to implement, and efficient, environmentally friendly, for home or commercial heating provides a new solution.
CLAIMS(6) translated from Chinese
1. The fuel used in the reactor consists of nickel hydrogen, lithium three elements, or a fuel containing these three elements.
2. Nickel may be a single metal, nickel isotopes, or chemical form of the nickel, such as: nickel chloride, and the like.
3. hydrogen containing hydrogen isotopes, such as protium, deuterium, tritium, deuterium and tritium compounds represented by protium three elements of the composition.
The lithium element comprises elemental lithium metal, lithium hydride, lithium aluminum hydride and the like.
5. The reactor shell material used for the transparent quartz, may be a high temperature glass, as well as other high temperature resistant transparent material.
6. The light emitted from the reactor by the thin film photovoltaic modules into electrical energy, electric energy generated by the reactor self-sustaining heat light, can also use an external power supply, such as: external power or battery energy storage startup or auxiliary reactor reached a self-sustaining .
It seems very simple, without any details , and I suspect it cannot be replicated, because things are not so simple (or replication would be trivial).
I don't bet much on that patent. I wait for expert opinion to confirm.
