An article in japanese in Nikkei journal is feature the cooperation between Clean Planet, MHI, in Tohoku University

Mikamine in Sendai Taihaku Ku (Mikamine) park is known for its cherry blossoms in excess of 500. "Tohoku University electronic light Science Research Center" is in the green adjacent to the park. Such as having two of the accelerator, it has carved a history of 50 years as a research center for nuclear physics.
Nuclear reaction advance in only a few hundred degrees
April 2015, "condensed nuclear reaction joint research department" has been established in the center. The "condensation collection system nuclear reaction", in a state in which the atoms and electrons are many, integration was like in the metal, it refers to the phenomenon in which the element is to be converted.

In the common sense of the now of physics, in order to continuously convert the elements, 100 million ℃ or more of the reaction field of the plasma state is required. Such as France and Japan, it has promoted the construction of the "ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor)" under the international cooperation. By a huge coil, it is technique to be confined to "100 million ℃" in a magnetic field, but, compared to the initial target, commercialization is significantly delayed.
If condensation collection system nuclear reaction, the element at a low temperature and fusion of several hundred ℃ from room temperature, nuclide to convert.Was built in Tohoku University electronic light Science Research Center, and enter the brand new building of the condensation collection system nuclear reaction joint research department, there is a covered experimental apparatus with a heat insulating material.
Chamber in which the nuclear reaction proceeds (container) is cylindrical. Although not visible in so metal, it measures the temperature by the sensor. "Still I about a year started to experiment, have steadily out of the heat." Yasuhiro Iwamura Professor of the research department, speak this while looking at the notes that were recorded temperature.
researcher of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries moved to Tohoku
In the past, condensation collection system nuclear reaction has been referred to as the "cold fusion (cold fusion)." The US University of Utah in March 1989, two researchers announced this phenomenon, was in the limelight in the world. But, it received reports on the University of Utah, all at once on the result of additional tests have been performed, published a negative opinion the major research institutions in the US and Europe before the end of 1989, verification project was also launched by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in Japan in each country in the report, he expressed the view that "can not demonstrate the excess heat" in 1993.
However, researchers of some to believe that possibility continues to steadily research, has been gradually increasing the reproducibility of this phenomenon. From around 2010, the United States and Italy, such as in Israel, venture companies are born one after another for the purpose of energy use. Condensation collection system nuclear reaction in Japan, in the United States in the nickname of "low energy nuclear reaction", came out a move to re-evaluate.
In fact, newly established condensed nuclear reaction joint research department in Tohoku University, issued a clean Planet (Tokyo, Minato) research funds to invest, such as venture and laboratories of the clean energy field, Tohoku University to provide the facilities and human resources It was launched in April 2015 in the form of the.
Stably enormous energy generated at the time of the "nuclear fusion, by the way that can be taken out in a safe and low-cost has been seen, Western development competition at the center has been activated the. Japanese researchers, until this there is a track record that has led to this field. for practical use, should be the wisdom that has been accumulated in the country. "Hideki Yoshino president of Clean Planet it this way, was invested funds to Tohoku University.
Iwamura Professor Takehiko Ito Visiting Associate Professor of Tohoku University and condensation-based nuclear reaction research department, both Mitsubishi Heavy Industries,engaged in the study of condensation collection system nuclear reaction at, was moved to Tohoku University in the opportunity of this department established. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries,radioactive waste as a technique for detoxifying, efforts to steady the research under the name "new element conversion", such as a successful selective element conversion, has been cited worldwide achievements.
