The possible Role of Axions in LENR

  • He doesn't push current THROUGH the coil, he just introduces high voltage into it.
    The corona wind is what is responsible for the effect.


    Typically, ionic winds are generated by gas discharges requiring large input voltages (>5 kV) applied between two electrodes. The input voltage used in this demo was 60 volts.

    At 3-5kV you only need one electrode in air- the positive one. You get quite a breeze off a correctly shaped terminal- that's how those little balsa-wood 'lifters' fly.(see American Antigravity for more info)

  • This is the QCD "Lava Lamp." It is an excellent animation of the 4 dimensional structure of the long-distance aspects of the QCD vacuum. The blobs are instantons and anti instantons forming and annihilating each other in the vacuum inside the hadron. instantons are vortex like current of magnetic flux lines that form inside the hadron.

  • Augmenting Reality: Axions, Anyons, and Entangled Histories


    Frank Wilczek’s presentation about Axions starts at 4:00 into the video.


    Axions were invented to solve the proton decay problem. Breaking time reversal symmetry is required to force the proton to decay. But the constraints placed on quarks by relativity, quantum mechanics, and gage symmetry of particles makes time reversal symmetry very unlikely to occur. Because there are three levels of quarks, a parameter of time reversal symmetry breaking exists as a single scalar parameter called theta. However, the color gluons introduce a connection between electric and magnetic interactions that allow the theta parameter of time reversal to become dynamic and therefore accessible to manipulation.


    The time reversal behavior of these color gluons can be affected under EMF influences. Specially, magnetic fields change the behavior of time reversal behavior of the color gluons. A magnetic field can induce a non zero theta value that will produce an electric dipole moment in the color quarks. Induced electric dipoles in particles produce time reversal symmetry breaking in color gluon mediated quarks.


    No electric dipole charge distribution has ever been detected in particles which imply that time reversal symmetry breaking does not occur in particles. To explain this observation a new symmetry has be discovered called the Peccei-Quinn (PQ) Symmetry which covers the theta parameter as a coupling constant. Because of PQ symmetry breaking which always happens, this forces the theta parameter to near zero. In other words, a dynamic theta means that its zero value is favored. The theta parameter is a field that has a quanta value and an associated force carrying particle called the Axion which couples very strongly to theta and therefore is has very small mass.


    Axions can interact with magnetic fields to produce photons. This means to me that photons can interact with the PQ symmetry to produce axions.


    In condensed matter systems, axions can be created as emergent particles.


    It seems to me that a condensed matter system can produce axions that are capable of inducing a non-zero value of the theta parameter so that the gluon color force will generate a decay of the hadron.


    Experimental evidence of this disruptive nuclear effect is available. Here is another SEM micrograph that shows a LENR active agent produced in a LENR reactor fuel preparation process, most probably an ultra-dense hydride micro particle that generates transmutation of graphite into a metal. The LENR agent has penetrated the graphite and settled on its bottom and is generating metal nanowire there.

    Stimulated Emission of Dark Matter Axion from Condensed Matter Excitations


    “In this paper, we discuss a possible consequence of the Bose-Einstein condensation of the dark matter axions: stimulated emissions of the axions. Based on the coupling between the axion field and the electromagnetic field, we discuss the stimulated emissions of the axions from collective excitations in various condensed matter systems. In particular, as a concrete example, we investigate the stimulated emission from the magnetic vortex strings in type II superconductors, where a mobile vortex ensemble, such as vortex flow or vortex liquid, is realized near the critical temperature. The emission rate of the dark matter axions are estimated, and a possible experimental signature of the emission is discussed.”


    Recently, Axions have be detected emanating from condensed matter systems.


    Holmlid has shown that ultra dense hydrogen is superconductive and forms a Bose condinsate at room temperature. The UDH is covered with a spin wave that may host a vortex based condensation of polaritons that could emit a flow of axions,

  • Given the upper limit of proton decay speed observed (more than 6 × 1034 years) it's improbable to play significant role for LENR: with axions or without them (the same logics indeed also applies to axions itself). If the heat of Sun would depend on decay of protons, it would produce few microwatts as a whole.

    I don't understand,,,. the decay of the proton releases most of it mass to energy which is 1 GeV per reaction. Fusion releases about 3 MeV.

  • Only if the proton would decay to radiation completely. But why it shouldn't decay to neutron and electron first, for example? The probability of such process is much higher, it runs for example inside the neutron stars, which segregate their matter of protons to neutron core and electron surface layer. It releases lower energy but the scale of its production would overshadow every subtle effect of direct proton decay.


    The proton decay is abstract concept - in reality the protons would always decay to their constituents first.
