  • I really like this part- from the rexresearch link - very reminiscent of Mills Hydrinos...


    " For him, it is a new form of hydrogen (comparable to pseudo neutrons) that is created in the structure of palladium. Compatibility with theoretical calculations, these hydrogen atoms occupy a considerably reduced volume compared to the "normal" atoms. The binding energy of the former is below 80 kV of the latter; the passage from one to the other is an exothermic reaction that would explain the excess heat. Once the small atoms are formed, one could then have fusion reactions with deuterium or lithium, which corresponds to the spurts sometimes observed (in Fusion review). These micro-thermonuclear explosions that occur have been verified by the team of YR Kucherov, AB Karabut and IB Savvatimova in Russia. Professor Vigier is among those who think that a real revolution is on our doorstep and that all countries with access to heavy water will be able to produce cheap energy in large quantities."

    I am beginning to doubt if you are human. You truly post the most interesting links here on this forum beyond a doubt now. Then you leave the most minimal response in your links.


    How do you find such interesting topics (like all the damn time)? I am beginning to wonder now. I am spending my life wrong "me thinks."


    Bet you think I am kidding? I am not. How are you scanning this much appropriate to the topic information? I do not understand. GiVe! how you do it please.

    I see using uspto. I just do not get how it is being correlated. Some superhero I guess now.

  • Hello Rigel,


    Thanks for the kind remarks.

    Actually, I spend most of my time tutoring math at coffee shops (and pubs).

    I have been following LENR since Pons and Fleischmann, and saw that they were being attacked with religious fervor - they were receiving the same treatment as Galileo, when he challenged The Establishment. Human nature never changes.

    Anyway, my bet is that LENR is likely real and that collective effects are involved. Handling QM, QED, QCD in condensed matter is pretty intractable - so I don't believe the official "refutations" are convincing. I also have met victims of the enforcers of scientific/political conformity - so I regard some of the attacks on LENR proponents as scurrilous.

    I enjoy doing web searches on various areas in math, physics, and medicine - so I just spend a lot of time on it.

    I don't comment too much on theories, but try to limit my postings to ones I find plausible.

    - Cheers, LP

  • Because you post patents (that I love) but very very little comment I thought you were queueing USPTO website. So I was just wondering how you were sorting (just me wondering how someone thinks). It is my nature.


    I have made no secret that I live in the DC area. After all these years I have friends still working everywhere here. I have some close ones here and there. One is at USPTO.


    I do not advocate LENR with my friends. So without "bible thumping" that I believe in Pd. Eventually after talking about kids, I get to a question "Is anyone suppressing LENR patents?" He had no idea even after I explained it to him. This is not being suppressed at the patent level. This is more BS. I really believe we need to be honest with each other. I research now all the time. But medicine requires too much thought so maybe when I am older ;)


    You take care please. And if you have a good OT medical url put it in the playground. I will read it.

  • This is not being suppressed at the patent level. This is more BS.

    My impression is that if and when there is suppression it is now largely at the individual examiner level. Hot fusion biased examiners from the F-P days are now largely retired. There still may be some categorical "class" red flags at the USPTO, so that If an application avoids the titling and focusing terminology as "cold fusion", and if it does not loudly claim fusion per se, applications are now often accepted and patents effectively claiming LENR / CANR / CF are now granted. That is, there is a good chance to gain LENR patents through the USPTO today, if one is careful with claims and class title. (Longview not an patent agent nor patent attorney)

  • Hello Rigel,

    I regularly visit USPTO, arxiv.org, and several other physics websites. I would list some of the med/biotech ones here, but I still need to compile them. Since I am short on time right now, this will take a few days. Also, since it's off-topic, I'll email you them later.

    I have not seen this patent app filed June 2017, and updated Dec 2017, by Brian Roarty before. It has LENR literally spelled out all over it. Interesting new approach. Worth a read. In addition, he has some experiments to back it up:


    Experiment Number 1


    [0082] This experiment was an early attempt to operate a quartz nozzle and was essentially an effort to qualify the apparatus and to determine the parameters needed for proper operation. In this early implementation, the supply line did not have a valve. While heating the liquid in the priming unit and treating it with the protocol, a solid plug was inserted into the female end of the supply line to prevent steam from escaping. During the experiment, the inventor removed the plug, intending to replace it with a test nozzle, failing to notice that the fluid in the priming unit had risen above the boiling point and that the headspace was therefore pressurized. When the plug was removed, the treated liquid immediately began venting through the supply line. When it vented, the thermocouple at the end of the supply line recorded a temperature increase from 198.degree. C. to 450.degree. C. in less than sixty seconds. Photonic stimulation was being applied at that moment; however, the phenomenon observed in this experiment was repeated later without electrical and photonic stimuli being applied to the nozzle. These experiments established that stimulation of the fluid with those two stimuli in the nozzle was not necessary; priming the fluid as previously described herein was sufficient to enable the reaction in the nozzle under proper conditions. It is unlikely that the inventor would have ever deliberately tested under these conditions, so this is an interesting example of the potential benefits to be gained by mistakes. (Successful experiments are generally more satisfying, but we sometimes learn far more from failures than from successes.)


    Experiment Number 2


    [0083] This experiment was a test of a quartz nozzle built as described in this application, including the ultrasonic stimulation. The priming unit was pressurized to 7 PSI to drive the liquid through the feed line and into the nozzle. During the experiment, fluid was observed leaking from the Teflon wrapping around the nozzle. The experiment was terminated and the nozzle later examined. It was found that it had cracked into several small pieces between 8 and 9 mm upstream of the center line of the acoustic coupler. The quartz had been tested for stress with polarized light after the glassblower worked on it and none had been detected. A severe thermal gradient would appear to have caused the strain factor that cracked the quartz at that site. Curiously, no temperature increase in the nozzle was detected in this experiment; it may simply have been so brief that a thermocouple did not have time to respond to it or that the thermocouple had not been positioned where it would have detected that increase.



    Experiment Number 3

    [0084] This experiment was another test of a quartz nozzle built as described in this application, including the ultrasonic stimulation. The fluid F consisted of 30 ml of H.sub.2O, 24 ml of D.sub.2O, 0.190 gm TMA POSS, and 2.055 gm of Li.sub.2SO.sub.4. The priming unit was pressurized to approximately 9 PSI to drive the liquid through the feed line and into the nozzle. Distinct bursts of heat were recorded by a thermocouple placed on the outer wall of the nozzle at the throat. A datalog of the experiment is shown as FIG. 6. The fluid was initially passed through the nozzle without ultrasonic stimulation. That resulted in a period of temperature increases seen on the left side of the datalog. Next, the ultrasonic stimulation was added. That resulted in the steep temperature rise shown in the middle of the datalog. The ultrasonic stimulus was turned off and on three times to establish that it was causing the reaction observed, and the increases did, in fact, appear to be coincident with that stimulus. The baseline for the temperatures measured at the throat is approximately 113.degree. C. The maximum temperature recorded is 502.degree. C., as noted on the figure. The scan interval in this experiment was 2.5 seconds.

    [0085] While the author of this application does not represent that the present embodiment of the invention is a working prototype of a phase change nozzle [1], he does assert that it is a prototype of a working prototype. Support for that assertion lies in the fact it demonstrates that the enabling exothermic reaction can be generated in the throat [3] of the nozzle [1] described herein, thus validating the operating principle of the nozzle [1] as described above.


    [0086] Further, the author points to the results obtained in previous static experiments reported in the aforementioned '022 patent application. Electrodes used in those experiments were examined after testing by two different methods of elemental analysis, EDS and Auger analysis. Those examinations detected strong evidence of six different possible transmutation products of the ingredients of the system. Transmutation products imply a nuclear reaction, thus supporting the conclusion that the reaction taking place within the nozzle [1] during testing are also nuclear in nature, specifically, LENRs.

  • its to bad that the coso gizmo was never duplicated and tested, we could have bin much farther along by now. Over complicating everything seems more fun then the simplest method to see the same results. This is very interesting if you dont let all the debunking stop you from theorizing what it can produce staying within the concept of the understood function of at least one component within the puzzle let alone all the components from the original composition dating analogy.

    ya gotta love engineers, they over do everything.

  • We've been here before.



    Hydrogen and oxygen battery, or hydrogen and oxygen to fire a combustion engine and/or for commerce https://www.google.co.uk/paten…YAhUnIcAKHQuXDMIQ6AEITjAF
    CA 2436299 A1

    ABSTRACT
    The present invention is directed to a method of and an apparatus for the disassociation of water into hydrogen and oxygen via a thermolysis, heat/ignition process. The hydrogen and oxygen produced may be burned as fuel in a hydrogen thermolysis reactor to provide propellant for a turbine or to provide heat to generate steam for a steam engine or may be combusted in a combustion engine. The present invention can produce heat for space heat for buildings and for manufacturing, etc. or can produce mechanical drive that can generate electricity, power hydraulic systems, or provide thrust to propel airplanes, spaceships, rockets or submarines (which have their own oxygen supply for combustion in outer space or underwater from the oxygen contained in the water converted into hydrogen and oxygen) and can provide the energy needed to power automobiles, trucks, buses, trains, boats, etc. A

    heat/ignition process is utilized to accomplish complete thermolysis and burning of water: A thermolysis coil located at the core of the hydrogen thermolysis reactor preheats the water under pressure until it reaches a temperature of approximately 2500 deg. F., without intense pressure the water would become gaseous; and, the water is heated by a resistance electrical current or by masers and/or by lasers before it is ejected from the coil and becomes heated to approximately 5000 deg. F. Most of the water will dissociate into hydrogen and oxygen within the liquid state due to extreme temperature and pressure, according to the Second Law of Thermodynamics; and, in the final step the water is ejected from the high-pressure, high-temperature thermolysis coil into a vacuum zone of negative-pressure and high-temperature created by a hydraulically operated vacuum turbine within the thermolysis nozzle and is transformed into fuel plasma containing atomic hydrogen and atomic oxygen. The plasma passes through an electric arc capable of temperatures up to 90,000 deg. F. or passes through laser beams capable of temperatures of up to one million deg. F, within the vacuum inside the thermolysis nozzle and the hydrogen and oxygen is further heated and is ignited by the electric arc or laser beams. The burning hydrogen and oxygen is diffused into the hydrogen thermolysis reactor's core by the vacuum turbine. A

    self-sustained cycle is created because the hydrogen and oxygen (disassociated water) that burns provides the heat/energy to perform work, including the generation of electricity for the resistance electrical current or masers and/or lasers and electric arc or lasers, and to heat additional water in the thermolysis coil and enormous quantities of excess energy for any other useful purpose.

    This is not a US patent, but a European one just granted to "Airbus Defence and Space GmbH". Even though they frequently mention LENR/LENR+ (Peter Glucks old term for high power), I do not see anything worth getting excited over. Applied for in 2016, so the preparation to file must have taken place during the Rossi era when LENR+ seemed close at hand. Rossi had prior to this been granted his "Fluid Heater" USPTO patent, that *could* use an LENR source, *if* one should ever be developed. Same idea here, as they claim:


    "In summary, a power generating apparatus for generating heat energy by an exothermic reaction in the form of a metal grid nuclear-assisted hydrogen process is provided for providing an environment-friendly, suitable for the transport sector thermal energy source by the invention"


    This also reminds me of "LENR Cars" recent patent app, for a car that will be able run off of LENR....when, or if LENR becomes commercially available. I do not see that happening anytime soon.

  • Mills patent makes me thinking about Bolotov's late 80s experiments with dc pulse discharge transmutations. He said he discovered first transmitations when sending low vlot high amp current with the density up to 1M amps per square mm. Later uising additives he brought it down to as low as 100.

    He was using modified arc welder were secondary coil was essentially a single conductor to achieve high density current.

    Method of Producing Energy from Condensed Hydrogen Clusters


    Abstract: A method of producing energy from condensed hydrogen clusters created from the desorption of hydrogen atoms from a primary material. The method of producing energy from condensed hydrogen clusters generally includes positioning at least a desorbing side of a primary material within a sealed reactor chamber. Mono-isotopic hydrogen atoms are absorbed by the primary material. Condensed hydrogen clusters are formed from the desorption of the hydrogen atoms from the primary material. Stability of the condensed hydrogen clusters is maintained by prevention of covalent bond formation and recombination into hydrogen molecules. A nuclear reaction and spallation of the stable condensed hydrogen clusters is initiated to produce reaction products. Energy may be harvested from the reaction products, such as through a coolant.

  • Among other things it points out that the hydrogen gas used needs (?) to be mono-isotopic (i.e. pure) citing Leif Holmlid's work, but Holmlid has suggested that it doesn't have to, and that the condensed hydrogen clusters (ultra-dense hydrogen) in his case can be formed by mixed pairs composed of protons and deuterons.


    E.g. here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/…abs/pii/S0022286018308172


    Or in plain words: https://patents.google.com/patent/WO2018093312A1/en

    [...]"Hydrogen" should, in the context of the present application, be understood to include any isotope or mix of isotopes where the nucleus has a single proton. In particular, hydrogen includes protium, deuterium, tritium and any combination of these.


    Quote

    [...]Dense hydrogen is then spontaneously converted to ultra-dense hydrogen called H(0) with a bond distance of 0.5 - 5 pm depending on the spin level. This material is a quantum material (quantum fluid) which may involve both electron pairs (Cooper pairs) and nuclear pairs (proton, deuteron or triton pairs, or mixed pairs).


    Detailed discussion and dissection of the LENR-Cars patent application would probably deserve a dedicated thread, though.

  • This extract is from one of Holmlid's patents and he makes muon production sound like a piece of cake - if it was so easy and didn't require high energy proton smashing why on earth haven't we cracked the whole fusion problem? Sounds all very well on paper but we are all still a million miles from reality. And unfortunately the same principle probably applies to all the other BS patents the various individuals and companies have published over the last 30 yrs - sorry guys it all seems to be unadulterated crap.


    The mechanism of formation of ultra-dense matter starts with the formation of higher normal Rydberg matter levels (I = 1 -3), which are formed spontaneously at the catalyst surface. It implies that the ultra-dense hydrogen is formed from ordinary Rydberg matter levels 1 = 1 -3 falling down to the lower energy ultra- dense states. The nuclear processes taking place in H(0) spontaneously and under laser impact or other field induction processes are still not completely known. However, several different steps have been studied separately. For example, the laser induces the transition from s=2 to s=1 in H(0). The total process giving the negative muons required for the muon-catalyzed fusion starts with the ultra-dense hydrogen particles HN(0) and is proposed to be:

    HN(0)(s=1 )→→(pe)(pe)→n in→ K* + K° + τπ→ decay→ μ", where n is an anti-neutron, formed from the "quasi-neutrons" (pe) (proton + electron). The mesons formed are all types of kaons and pions, and it is likely that three kaons are formed from each HN(0) particle since this conserves the number of quarks. Over all, the number of quarks is largely unchanged in the meson formation step, but further pair production of pions is also possible which does not conserve the number of quarks. The process shown is highly exoergic and gives much more than 100 MeV to the particles ejected from each pair of protons. This should be compared to ordinary D+D fusion, which has an output per pair of deuterons of 4-14 MeV depending on the conditions like temperature.


    Or is it? It could only possibly work if the quasi-neutrons had incredibly high kinetic energy (as in cosmic radiation). No way at room temperature. Back to the drawing board, I guess.

    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.

    Target Structure For Enhanced Electron Screening


    Abstract

    Enhanced Coulomb repulsion (electron) screening around light element nuclei is achieved by way of utilizing target structures (e.g., nanoparticles) that undergo plasmon oscillation when subjected to electromagnetic (EM) radiation, whereby transient high density electron clouds are produced in localized regions of the target structures during each plasmon oscillation cycle. Each target structure includes an integral body composed of an electrically conductive material that contains light element atoms (e.g., metal hydrides, metal deuterides or metal tritides). The integral body is also configured (i.e., shaped/sized) to undergo plasmon oscillations in response to the applied EM radiation such that the transient high density electron clouds are formed during each plasmon oscillation cycle, whereby brief but significantly elevated charge density variations are generated around light element (e.g., deuterium) atoms located in the localized regions, thereby enhancing Coulomb repulsion screening to enhance nuclear fusion reaction rates. Various target structure compositions and configurations are disclosed.

    Light-Nuclei Element Synthesis


    Abstract

    A system and method for the synthesis of light-nuclei elements (LNEs), including the battery element Lithium, in high-purity form. The method eliminates the need for high-energy proton collision in Cosmic Rays to produce Nitrogen-15. LNEs are produced by placing a mixture with carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen (CNO) source material in a strong, fixed magnetic field, then introducing instability to the CNO's stable isotopes through high-frequency radio waves tuned to the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) frequency of a target material in the mixture to produce a LNE product material, and then separating the LNE product material from other materials within the mixture by enhancing gravity separation based on the opposite signs of respective dipole magnetic moments (DMM) to cause attraction of the product material, such as Lithium, to the South magnetic pole away from another product material, such as Beryllium, that is attracted to the North magnetic pole.
