Mizuno : Publication of kW/COP2 excess heat results

  • We still need attosecond technology to do easily nanostructure , femtosecond remains too big unfortunally.

    Now actually best is sputtering to do that.

  • about nanostructure (in Pd), I caught recently various papers about what can be achieved today

    Tunable Low Density Palladium Nanowire Foams



    Nanostructured palladium foams offer exciting potential for applications in diverse fields such as catalyst, fuel cell, and particularly hydrogen storage technologies. We have fabricated palladium nanowire foams using a cross-linking and freeze-drying technique. These foams have a tunable density down to 0.1% of the bulk, and a surface area to volume ratio of up to 1,540,000:1. They exhibit highly attractive characteristics for hydrogen storage, in terms of loading capacity, rate of absorption and heat of absorption. The hydrogen absorption/desorption process is hysteretic in nature, accompanied by substantial lattice expansion/contraction as the foam converts between Pd and PdHx.

    Templated Growth of Pd Nanoparticles Using Sputtering Deposition Process and Its Catalytic Activities



    A simple method based on sputtering deposition of Pd onto mesoporous SiO2 (SBA-15) was employed to produce supported Pd nanoparticles (NPs) that can be used as hydrogenation catalysts. The use of sputtering deposition eliminates contaminants and avoids additional drawbacks of traditional chemical methods applied to prepare heterogeneous supported metal catalysts. A mechanical resonant stirrer was used to revolve the SBA-15 powder and ensure homogeneous distribution of the Pd NPs over the support. The SBA-15 pores act as templates for Pd NPs and drive nanostructure growth. Consequently, the NPs obtained have the same diameter as that of the SBA-15 channels (~5 nm) and elongated particles are formed as sputtering deposition increases. The SBA-15 supported Pd NPs (Pd NPs/SBA-15) were tested in a probe hydrogenation of cyclohexene reaction to evaluate the catalytic activity of the Pd NPs. Turnover frequency (TOF) of 2000 min−1were achieved with the lower Pd NPs concentration (0.15 wt%) catalyst.

    Grain boundary mediated hydriding phase transformations in individual polycrystalline metal nanoparticles



    Grain boundaries separate crystallites in solids and influence material properties, as widely documented for bulk materials. In nanomaterials, however, investigations of grain boundaries are very challenging and just beginning. Here, we report the systematic mapping of the role of grain boundaries in the hydrogenation phase transformation in individual Pd nanoparticles. Employing multichannel single-particle plasmonic nanospectroscopy, we observe large variation in particle-specific hydride-formation pressure, which is absent in hydride decomposition. Transmission Kikuchi diffraction suggests direct correlation between length and type of grain boundaries and hydride-formation pressure. This correlation is consistent with tensile lattice strain induced by hydrogen localized near grain boundaries as the dominant factor controlling the phase transition during hydrogen absorption. In contrast, such correlation is absent for hydride decomposition, suggesting a different phase-transition pathway. In a wider context, our experimental setup represents a powerful platform to unravel microstructure–function correlations at the individual-nanoparticle level.

    Direct visualization of hydrogen absorption dynamics in individual palladium nanoparticles



    Many energy storage materials undergo large volume changes during charging and discharging. The resulting stresses often lead to defect formation in the bulk, but less so in nanosized systems. Here, we capture in real time the mechanism of one such transformation—the hydrogenation of single-crystalline palladium nanocubes from 15 to 80 nm—to better understand the reason for this durability. First, using environmental scanning transmission electron microscopy, we monitor the hydrogen absorption process in real time with 3 nm resolution. Then, using dark-field imaging, we structurally examine the reaction intermediates with 1 nm resolution. The reaction proceeds through nucleation and growth of the new phase in corners of the nanocubes. As the hydrogenated phase propagates across the particles, portions of the lattice misorient by 1.5%, diminishing crystal quality. Once transformed, all the particles explored return to a pristine state. The nanoparticles’ ability to remove crystallographic imperfections renders them more durable than their bulk counterparts.

    If we can work with this kind of team and instrument, it could be solved in few years

    Solved (working with you :D ) in few years what ?

    AlainCo leave these scientists do their job, they are studying real research fields, not phantomatic or alleged claims of XH and unproven nuclear reactions.

    JoNP means Journal of Null-Physics (the house of hoax,trickery, junk and psychopathological science).

  • Well, GSVIT put out their Mizuno report 4 days ago. It was scathing, and too personal for my taste, but they seemed to bring up valid points. So what happens now: Does someone give Mizuno a copy so he can defend himself, or just pretend it never happened?

    Obviously it never happened... being that the best Tech-watcher of fusionists has immediately defined here that report as: "Tahakashi Mizuno published astounding results" ;)

  • My fault, it's Tadahiko Mizuno

    when the wise see the moon, the monkey see the finger.

    by the way for those unable to read the name of the author in the paper it was quoted with the good name. Few lines too far for short brains.

  • Tahakashi does not exist in Japanese.;)

    Il gruppo di quattro,, De Marchis, Massa, Morici , Sebastiani put out their report.

    Il tempo è denaro

    It took them about two months.

    Perhaps Professor Mizuno will consider their hypotheses. .

    Il tempo è denaro

    The plasma activation of the small nickel surface does not take two months but it is too long.

    6x10000 seconds +24 hrs =30 hours. (see reference 1.)

    Reference 1.http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/ BiberianJPjcondensedw.pdf Pg 179

    Mizuno-San has probably spent a lot of hours on upwards of 200 reactor core preparations so far. A priority is to reduce the time.

    Laser irradiation at femto/ atto dimensions is a possibility but there are many variables to control

    Il tempo è denaro

    There is only one Tadahiko, not four.. but perhaps Tahakashi , Tashahadi and Takashako can help him

    Il tempo è denaro

    Mea culpa accepted Alain..I don't think Mizuno-San will take offense ;)

  • Au contraire, Henri: I raise you 30 denarii of nanostructured nickel-palladium..

    Ouzo is OK sometimes if one likes aniseed, but just a drop on icecream

    καὶ μὴ μεθύσκεσθε οἴνῳ ἐν ᾧ ἐστιν ἀσωτία ἀλλὰ πληροῦσθε ἐν πνεύματι.

    BTW -femto laser irradiation rate looks a bit slow

    0.84m2 of nickel at a rate of 21* 10(9) square microns per hour takes ~40 hours.

    Mizuno-San probably did that calculation awhile ago.

    Microwave foams, cavitation or chemical etching are probably being considered as options,..

  • Moving from the "Letters" topic.

    I suggested that rats (or any mammal) can remove more water from the hot bucket by absorbing it into their fur, and then shaking it off, than by either drinking it (Jed's calculations), or splashing.

    Here is the paper relating the amount of water a critter can hold in its fur, and how efficiently it can shed that water.

    Wet mammals shake at tuned frequencies to dry : Dickerson et al

  • I suggested that rats (or any mammal) can remove more water from the hot bucket by absorbing it into their fur, and then shaking it off, than by either drinking it (Jed's calculations), or splashing.

    Probably a rat could more efficiently empty a bucket of water by syphoning the water with its long tail than by drinking it ;-)

    Somehow similar to that:

    Or maybe Mizunos bucket was a sort of Phytagoras cup:

    (or - a simple and ordinary explanation - the bucket just started leaking over night...)
