New Paper By Gullström, Rossi - COP 22,000

  • Quote

    Judging from the experts comments here, and even on ECW, this report has no scientific value


    The Quark-X/Me356 arrangement cannot be replicated - but it doesn't mean, it cannot be duplicated. Nobody did try to push corona discharge into mixture of nickel and LiAlH4 - or whatever else will remain from it - at high temperatures and it just seems for me, everyone of LENR community is dancing around this experimental arrangement like around newly established taboo for more than year already. Why? Because it's the experimental arrangement, which actually works?

    why a device with a COP of 22,000 requires any input of electricity at all? Why not simply generate electricity with any simple thermoelectric converter near the hot end


    Of course it's possible - but would you really arrange the experimental device in this way? But it just seems for me, that Gullström-Rossi report completely neglected the heat input from outside: the working temperature of reactor must be somehow reached and this heat isn't for free, especially not at high temperatures. Other than that, these experiments should be easy to replicate, as there are anecdotal reports about palladium glow discharge tube filled with hydrogen, which kept itself in glowing state, once the electricity passed through it. I presume, the QuarkX device would work in similar way.

  • Rossi has often claimed to have proven infinite COP or the so called "self sustain mode" with his demos of the early ecat. Also, an ill founded attempt was made by Levi & co to explain in TPR1 that the "off" portions of the time period were proof of "heat after death" of the hotcat. The problem so far is that this "proof" of output energy with zero input energy was systematically compatible with the thermal inertia of the devices.

    Indeed. I saw the same curve in my experiments with no "fuel." They attributed the curve shape to excess heating effects, but it is just regular old thermodynamic effects.

  • do you have evidence that this has not been done

    Evidence of what has not been done? Dig that hole! :)


    Here is what has not been done...


    QuarkX to be installed at customer by April 2016

    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016…ustomer-factory-by-april/

    uh.... no. Did not happen.


    QuarkX to be tested by "important new customer" by May 2016

    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016…potential-cutomerpartner/

    uh... no. Did not happened. Another fake customer perhaps?


    QuarkX report to be published in June 2016

    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016…ch-thread/comment-page-1/

    uh... speaks for itself.


    QuarkX second "Very important customer" in june

    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016…ant-new-customer-in-june/

    .... amazing how many customers over the past 6 years seem to disappear with memory!!!! Also no test either, probably no customer either.


    Quarkx factory to be in Sweden in May 2016

    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016…ry-for-quarkx-production/

    uh... no factory. The factory was stated by Rossi to be a magnificence several years ago! What happened to that one? :/

    I guess the Doral facility is must be quite the magnificence! :rolleyes:


    and I could go on with many more......


    Your answer will most likely be.... "but he has been developing and changing the QuarkX. None of the above counts because it was his intentions only and not a given fact!" and other excuses. We have heard the same excuses for 6 years now and nothing has come from it but smoke and mirrors.


    Rossi "spends time" in his "Doral Factory Laboratory" with his "team" to write a completely nonsense paper. He could settle this argument easily once and for all if he really had something. Yet he refuses to do so.


    Rossi supporters need to wake up to his repetitive past history and start to realize what Rossi is doing.

    No one stays with him. Gullstrom is now his new "Expert". What happened to Norman Cook?! What happened to that paper and relationship?

    What happened to all the past relationships with Rossi? Even the Lugano people do not come to his defense.


    The list of known false statements and deceptions is long and wide spread from him. The list of actual confirmed and proven truths is almost non-existent!

    People can continue to place their trust and hope in Rossi......


    but that is only digging a hole you cannot get out of!

  • I suspect the reactors output is a new form of electricity composed of Rossitrons rather than Electrons and the problem of self sustain is one of input/output compatibility.


    Maybe the new form of electricity is a mix of Rossitrons and hoax-trons... :)


    Indeed. I saw the same curve in my experiments with no "fuel." They attributed the curve shape to excess heating effects, but it is just regular old thermodynamic effects.


    They don't love the old thermodynamics and also I bet that you can't show an intriguing and disruptive theory behind :)

    What I meant with it was, we already have enough of information for independent research of the same arrangement.
    Of course there can be some hidden tricks, but given the reliability and efficiency reported, I wouldn't consider serious problem with it.

    The only picture of Quark-X reactor released to public sported a significant blue glow, which could originate from charged particles (electrons) escaping from reactor.

    Once we collect them, then we will generate electricity directly from nuclear reaction. This concept has been proposed many times in nuclear fusion research.

    BTW it would be good if the forum registration form would contain some rudimentary IQ test - the reCaptcha is apparently too small obstacle for posting at this forum.

  • For the love of Aristotle, can someone explain to me why a device with a COP of 22,000 requires any input of electricity at all? Why not simply generate electricity with any simple thermoelectric converter near the hot end

    For a laboratory experimental device that would be annoying to implement. Plus you want control the input power carefully, and you want to measure it with precision instruments and a computer, so a conventional power supply is a better choice.


    If this were a real experiment conducted by an ordinary scientist, no one would question the electric power input measurement. They do not challenge it when there is no input (heat after death), or when input is thousands of times smaller than output (with proton conductors). There is no need for a scientist to demonstrate self-sustaining operation when it is obvious that is possible. That would be pointless grandstanding. People who do not understand science might be impressed, but such people are useless. Unless they happen to be billionaires who intend to fund the research!


  • OMG! Are you showing off your "skills" in logic reasoning? Even though you try really really hard to deny it, there is the possibility that the Lugano device worked more or less as stated in the report, which would put it all in a somewhat other perspective, right?


    Well no, that is not possible, because the report contains a logical error that dramatically invalidates its results. It remains possible that the device produced excess heat, or indeed had some unexpected endothermic nuclear reaction and produced beyond chemically possible heat absorption. Those possibilities would be there with no experiment, and these results don't narrow things down except to rule out a large heat excess of the sort claimed in the report.

  • I cannot comment on the validity of Gullstrom's theory, but it appears that the included "experiment" at the Doral location provided no evidence of support nor evidence to refute his theory. Including that "story" in the experimental section of his paper does Gullstrom a disservice - he might as well included a recipe for chocolate cake for all it added to his paper. Clearly the theory presented did not come from Rossi. I don't know how Rossi came to be associated with this paper, but that was a mistake. Rossi's contribution could have been the "Report of the Experiment ..." section; which, as I said, was useless in supporting the premise of the paper. Perhaps, Rossi was looking for some validation that he could show that his device worked because he was under substantial courtroom burden of evidence that his devices did not work. In my opinion, Gullstrom should edit his paper, remove that non-supporting experimental report, and remove Rossi's name from the paper as author - make it strictly a theory paper.


    It did not occur to me until a second reading of the paper ... "When the current was switched on a plasma was SEEN flowing between the two nickel rods". Obviously to be seen as an identifiable plasma, the envelope of the reactor sounds like it was clear. This suggests the envelope may be fused quartz (cheap) or sapphire (expensive). Rossi claimed that the Quark would be cheap and threw out a $25 number, making it more likely that the tube he was using at the time was fused quartz. Fused quartz melts at 1650°C, which is too high to create a direct seal to the Ni electrodes, but it may have been possible to create a low temperature seal if the seal area was relatively far from the discharge area. The thermal conductivity of fused quartz is low - about 17x less than sapphire and 70x lower than Ni. Thus, heat from the discharge region would not conduct through the fused quartz as much as through the Ni rod. It may have even been possible to make the seal with JB Weld.



  • Are You serious in presenting this silly useless nothing-saying picture as an hint/evidence for ANYTHING You say?

    This shitty light is EVERYTHING You see, nothing in this picture allows ANY conclusion.

    And this light could be EVERYTHING/ANYTHING but , and I would start another bet on it, it has nothing to do with ANY stuff, that runs in self-sustaining mode...

  • ... let's continue, I have also some:

    - journal of nonsense posters


    - Jamiroquai order numerous pussies


    - joke originals new proposed

    IMO sapphire was the material used, or at least it should be for long term experiments. The reason for it is the chemistry: at higher temperatures (>700K) the lithium hydride decomposes to elementary lithium, which would reduce the quartz into free silicon. The sapphire would be more inert from this perspective (despite that at low temperatures the lithium tends to reduce aluminum from molten salts due to its higher electronegativity). At the high temperatures the aluminum (termite) is the kind and it displaces nearly all metals from their compounds.

    Well, we can see hydrogen spectrum, Cherenkov radiation and another stuffs there. A single picture indeed means nothing very much - but similar effects were also reported with Me356 or Fulvio Fabian, a close cooperator of A. Rossi. And Rossi works on "direct production of electricity" from Quark-X reactor, which "doesn't involve thermoelectricity", you can read new patents issued about it. If you connect the dots, you'll get into similar conclusions. For layman such a pictures represent just a blurred spots - but if you would get engaged an industrial espionage, you would be forced to deduce the details from way more subtle indicia. But it also requires to be an expert and to know, where to look for it, which speculations are feasible and which ones aren't. It's not job for armchair theorists, who just leaved the school and who believe, they understand physics, because they memorized few equations and ways how to solve them for ideal simplified cases. The actual physics is somewhere else.

    Regarding: "When the current was switched on a plasma was SEEN flowing between the two nickel rods".


    The implication the Bob is drawing is that the structural material that the reactor is made from is transparent. This conjecture is not supported by the possible detection method of plasma related to a current flow between the electrodes as seen in the appropriate current measurement instruments.


    The "black body" nature of the radiation as indicated in the following statement:


    "The temperature of the surface of the reactor ( a perfect black body ) has
    been calculated"


    indicates that the structural reactor material enclosing the plasma is not transparent and any light produced by the hot plasma must not be seen through that structural material to make the assumption about the "black body" nature of the reactor surface temperature determination valid.
