There are other interesting errors in the provisional patent title list, like for example LENR -> LEHR or Gas -> GA. I suspect that this list provided by Industrial Heat may have been OCR'd from a printed document as it contains typical OCR errors in addition to Rossi-isms. Apparently these applications weren't supposed to be public, so the source probably wasn't the USPTO website.
On an unrelated note and again on the subject of a possible connection with the previously discussed X-ray/vacuum tube idea, these applications may be relevant to it too:

I think "Mirror effect" in the last group of patents is a reference to the Casimir effect mentioned in the second group; for example see this link or this one. Since the Van der Waals force is related to the Casimir effect, it seems that Rossi believes that it's important for whatever exothermic reaction occurs with metals and hydrogen. I suspect here the "weak interaction energy" is not a reference to the weak nuclear force, but actually weak intermolecular forces, of which the Van der Waals force is an example.
There has been a lot written about Brown Dwarf stars - I have even done some of it myself. BD Plasmas are host to Alfven waves and many other EM phenomena that might be causing LENR reactions right down to 200-300C.
Rossi is mentioning White dwarves which should be much hotter but, are you suggesting Rossi has a dusty plasma in his system? How might one be efficiently produced at low temperatures? Ultrasounds?
I'm not sure the Q-X temperature is all that low. If (as I suspect) there is an initial HVDC arc or glow discharge rapidly followed by a LVDC 'maintenance current', then it is I guess possible that it is a gas/vapour plasma based on hydrogen laced with lithium and aluminium vapour, No actual dust involved.
Well it's a very long shot I guess but I'm trying to think of possible endothermic processes that would not need material moved in and out.
I have heard of at least one endothermic process that might fit:
Pardon me, it should read:
He(4) + Ni(58) > Cr(50) + C(12) -7.54 MeV
And we could also have:
He(4) + Ni(60) > Cr(52) > C(12) - 6.6 MeV
Just wondering if the Cr in Parkhomov’s experiment might have come from an alpha reaction.
"CLANDESTINE" is a good word.
I hope things will come to light soon. Only time can tell.
