New JCMNS - Vol.22 (CMNS Journal) Published.

  • The latest edition.

    'This Volume 22 marks the tenth anniversary of the publication of the first volume of the Journal of Condensed
    Matter Nuclear Science. This journal was created to fill a void in the scientific world. Since the beginning, in 1989,
    the subject of Cold Fusion, discovered by Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons, has been, and is still, rejected by the
    scientific community. There was a need to go beyond the International Conferences on Cold Fusion proceedings to
    publish papers. It was necessary to have an internal way of communicating between scientists working together, just
    like in any other field of science. From the very start, it was decided that the journal would be peer reviewed. Also,
    since ICCF16, the Journal publishes the proceedings of the conferences and workshops dedicated to Condensed Matter
    Nuclear Science. A total of 312 papers have been published, 93 of them being conference proceedings.
    I would like to thank all the anonymous referees those who have spent lot of time and effort to make the papers of
    high quality. I have been pleasantly surprised to find that some of them do such a great job in improving the papers,
    they almost deserve to be listed as co-authors! I would like to thank Jed Rothwell for the great work which he is doing
    to improve the quality of the English of papers written by non-English speaking authors. It is also a pleasure to thank
    our Indian colleague Dr. Kumar who is doing an excellent job in the typesetting of the papers.
    Please enjoy in reading this new volume.'
    Dr. Jean-Paul Biberian

  • As usual many interesting papers.

    A team in ukraine (Savrasov,Prokopenko,Andreev) reproduced CR39 experiment popularized by SPAWAR (in fact it is a child of GALILEO project)

    There have succes and failures, but they interpret the failures as evidence it is not background. A point to keep in mind when interpreting failures.

    Jacques RUER publish an extended English version based on his presentation in RNBE2016 (published in JCMNS vol 21), with new section added, explaining concepts like COP, gain, the various kind of reactors mode, control problems, and proposal of architecture. He then propose some configuration, various mode of cooling, and of conversion like LENR+Ericsson/Stirling-engine, +Brayton/Rankine turbine.

    Very interesting to understand some claims of COP (like Brillouin gain=/= COP), or expectation for applications, of difficulties...

    There is a theoretical paper with researshers of indonesia and Ukraine. I think is was presneted earlier here...

    there is a paper on NANOR by Swartz.

    He apply some magnetic pulse. ( This is not new, and I remember such test with Dennis letts, and later with Violante ) and analys the "small to significant increase gain in activity", but in some condition 4x to 10x better. He notice remnant effects...

    Quite uncommon in JCMNS, Verner,Swarts, and Hagelstein wrote a paper about how tomake a LENR course like their IAP Cold Fusion 101... Education is a subject.

    there is a theory paper by hagelstein about Karabut experimeng, and observed Colimated 1.5keV X-rays.

    According the article this replication was rather crude (without galvanostat you cannot achieve the exact deposition of palladium layer by layer).

    Szpak also did use magnetic field in his cells probably for good reasons... Also Hagelstein talks about magnetic domains in palladium by now.
