New USPTO Patent Applications

  • 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.

    Quote

    [...]"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.

    Applicant: Google Inc. / U. of Maryland, College Park


    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.

    USPTO Patent Application 20190045617 February 7, 2019


    I haven't performed any detailed reading yet, but I noticed that the text of these two applications is virtually identical from the paragraphs beginning at "BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS".

  • Seems that, at least, the undesirable effects of high density electron clusters have been recognized!


    "It wasn't until the 1990's that the buildup of high densities of low-energy electrons was identified as the reason behind performance limitations in many types of particle accelerators over the preceding decades. Nowadays the incorporation of means to prevent the buildup of electron clouds is a necessary feature of modern accelerator design. These electrons cause a wide variety of undesirable effects, such as increased beam size, beam loss due to instabilities, distortions of the magnetic lattice optics, noise induced in instrumentation, vacuum contamination and increased heat load on cryogenically cooled accelerator components."


  • These two new patents have Joseph Murray as co-inventor. Is this the same Joe Murray IH employed for Doral?

  • Here are links to the pdf versions of the Google patent applications.


    The first two appear to have the same figures and specifications.


    When a patent is examined, the USPTO may determine that the claims are directed to more than one invention and issue a restriction requirement to make the inventor elect only a subset of the claims to be examined initially. The non-elected claims can be included in later filings of divisional or continuation applications that retain the same priority date.

    In this case it looks like they initially filed two sets of claims to avoid a later restriction requirement and start the examination of both sets of claims more quickly.
