    SUBMICRON FUSION DEVICES, METHODS AND SYSTEMS


    Abstract

    Methods, apparatus, devices, and systems for creating, controlling, conducting, and optimizing fusion activities of nuclei. In particular, the present inventions relate to, 5 among other things, fusion activities that are conducted individually or collectively on a very small scale, preferably on the nano-scale or smaller such as pico to femto scales, for the utilization of energy produced from these activities in smaller devices and for aggregation into larger devices.

    "Approach to Nuclear Fusion Utilizing Dynamics of High-Density Electrons and Neutrals"


    An approach to achieve nuclear fusion utilizing the formation of high densities of electrons and neutrals is described. The profusion of low energy electrons provides high dynamic electric fields that help reduce the Coulomb barrier in nuclear fusion; high-density neutrals provide the stability and reaction rates to achieve break-even fusion where charged particles are the main products. Interactions of energetic charged particles with high-density background produce positive feedbacks with enhanced cross sections. Experiments in a rotating geometry illustrate the advantages of this approach, which discriminates against neutronic fusion.

    "Creating localized plasma wave by ionization of doped semiconductors"

    https://arxiv.org/pdf/1903.09013.pdf

    EXCERPT -- "In another speculative application, the creation of localized plasma wave might also offer a new route for inertia confinement fusion (ICF). One can use ionizing semiconductors to create a plasma wave with total energy E in volume V and then compress the plasma volume adiabatically using, e.g., lasers. According to Refs. [3,4], the mechanical energy of compression is partially transferred into the plasma wave leading to increasing thewave energy E∝V−1/2. The compression also increases

    the plasma wave vector k∝V−1 until Landau damping suddenly dominates and damps the wave energy into hot electrons. The semiconductor plasma wave is particularly attractive because both the plasma and the embedded wave are well localized, making it easy for compression. It avoids the difficulty of laser energy penetration into overdense plasma targets in current laser heating ICF experiments.z'

    United States Patent 10,566,094 February 18, 2020


    Enhanced electron screening through plasmon oscillations


    Abstract

    Enhanced Coulomb repulsion screening around light element nuclei is achieved by way of utilizing electromagnetic (EM) radiation to induce plasmon oscillations in target structures (e.g., nanoparticles) in a way that produces high density electron clouds in localized regions of the target structures, thereby generating charge density variations around light element atoms located in the localized regions. Each target structure includes an electrically conductive body including light elements (e.g., a metal hydride/deuteride/tritide) that is configured to undergo plasmon oscillations in response to the applied EM radiation. The induced oscillations causes free electrons to converge in the localized region, thereby producing transient high electron charge density levels that enhance Coulomb repulsion screening around light element (e.g., deuterium) atoms located in the localized regions. Various systems capable of implementing enhanced Coulomb repulsion screening are described, and various nanostructure compositions and configurations are disclosed that serve to further enhance fusion reaction rates.

  • Some will claim that 'high electron charge density' is an EVO

    Yep, I accept that denser matter constructs between nuclear and chemical processes are likely possible and high electron densities would probably play an interesting part. But the energy from vacuum and things that ignore conservation of energy for "stereotypical EVOs" make it sketchy to me. Though I think openess to it's possible reality, if openly proven, is an attractive approach. A miracle truly would always garner appreciation fully to my eyes 😁.

  • I would say that high electron density isn't what constitutes an EVO but can generate conditions favorable for EVOs to self organize. One of multiple ways which EVOs may be able to induce nuclear reactions is due to their high electric charge due to their density of electrons around themselves. If a high density of electrons produces transmutations that doesn't absolutely mean an EVO was involved. However, I expect that when you suddenly produce spikes of electrons due to surface plasmons that the conditions are favorable for EVOs, even on the nano-scale, to form.

  • United States Patent 10,566,094 February 18, 2020 is laser directed at metal hydride with smaller elements doing the real fusion. Hora's recent statement on their approach is two lasers with the net effect of driving hydrogen at boron ( a small element). In my pending patent I indicated that the fusion of small element should be possible by confinement of small elements which have been excited into weak interacting quantum states. The weak interacting quantum states of the target and projectile significantly lower the coulomb barrier.

  • This is the kind of systems that is more of my interest alley right now as I am (Covid-19 alowing) soon to start some cavitation replications.

    I certainly Hope to see LENR helping humans to blossom, and I'm here to help it happen.

  • From my knowledge most LENR is not table top fusion, even though it should be a real energy phenomina. This is some form of warm fusion if it checks out. Without many 100s of keV to multiple MeV outputs per reaction it just isn't primarily nuclear, period. When about ~100 keV down to 0.5 keV output per reaction shielding isn't a problem. Absorbed with thin sheets of heavy material.
