  • LENR advocates are always bemoaning the mistreatment of the field by mainstream scientists. Respect for the field is not helped in the least by the fact that some of its most passionate supporters are equally passionate about a wide range of pseudoscience and even completely crackpot ideas. Guilt by association may be unfair or unwarranted but it is a powerful force nonetheless.

  • Hydrogen acoustically stimulated thermal desorption from stainless steel

    Presumably, the main mechanism of intensifying the gas components desorption is the compression

    and tension of the metal crystal lattice and deformation of intercrystalline gaps, caused by acoustic

    vibrations of the polycrystalline metal structure.

    The one mechanism of the previously described acoustically stimulated thermal desorption is the

    closing and opening of intercrystalline gaps, which are “open” to atoms (primarily hydrogen) in the

    case when the walls of intercrystalline gaps are covered with at least one monolayer of sorbate with

    high volumetric concentration CS1 (figure 1(a), right). Acoustic oscillations are closing the

    intercrystalline gaps (figure 1(b), right) and causing instantaneous connection of sorbate layers on the

    gaps walls, simultaneously causing heating in the area of the newly formed contact (figure 1(b), left)

    up to temperature TS1=TS2, because sorption is an exothermic process. In our case we are dealing

    with “collective sorption” and the contact of “groups” of molecules located on opposite surfaces [5].

    This “collective sorption” process occurs at ultrasonic frequency and at the nanoscale distances. The

    result of this process is instant local heating of the polycrystalline structure of the acoustically

    stimulated material (figure 1(c), (d), left). Herewith, the diffusion processes take place both deep in the

    metal crystal lattice ntothe and on the surfaces of the intergranular boundaries, by stretching and

    compressing the crystal lattice. Finally, the described repeated a high frequency process with leads to

    the appearance of pulses of the gas flow (Qd) from the gap (figure 1(f), right). At this point, the

    material is not heated (temperature TS curve 10 in figure 1(f), left), because the desorption process

    comes with heat absorption.

    The result is the appearance of a gas release flow (Qd) from the gaps between the crystallites, as

    shown in figure 2. Hence, schematically the acoustically stimulated thermodesorption can be

    represented as the process movement of thermally activated atoms in shrinking and stretching crystal

    lattice of metal, located in the acoustic field, and process "collective" sorption, causing the pulsed

    local heating of the crystallites surfaces.

    Consider the scheme of hydrogen gas evolution from the surface layer of the polycrystalline

    structure of corrosion-resistant steel (figure 2) when exposed to ultrasonic vibrations [6, 7]. As shown

    in figure 2, crystallite sizes are in a fairly wide range from units to tens of micrometers, the

    intergranular boundaries width is from tens to tens of angstrems. Precisely in these intergranular

    boundaries, the gas sorbed on the surfaces of crystals and dissolved in the metal volume is mainly

    located [8–10]. Under the influence of longitudinal and transverse ultrasonic vibrations on crystallites

    there are forced elastic vibrations. In this case, the width of the intercrystalline boundaries also

    changes with the frequency of forced oscillations. Under certain conditions, there is a sharp increase in

    the amplitude of the elastic oscillations of the width of the boundaries between the crystals. In this

    case, the pulsed local heating of the surface of crystallites occurs and the mobility of "dissolved"

    hydrogen atoms is increased, as described above. The gas "dissolved" in the intergranular boundaries

    and the volume of grains diffuses to the surface adjacent to the vacuum medium, where its

    concentration in conditions of ultra-high vacuum is close to zero, and then it is desorbed and pumped

    out by the vacuum system.

  • Last night, I managed a fairly flat 3.97 m/s velocity profile in a 65 mm tube, 60 cm long, with significantly lowered voltage to the San Ace blower fan. I didn’t have time to swap on the 25 cm long tube and test it. The tachometer signal seems to be still functioning at the lower voltage and reports 105.6 Hz (divide that by 2), so 3162 RPM.

    I am out on another trip, so again it will be a while before I continue testing.
