    Nuclear coherence in the target used by a new type of neutrino detector increases the sensitivity of neutrino detection by many orders of magnitude making a desktop detector possible. It is now possible to replace huge underground neutrino detectors located deep underground by using a tabletop device. What this means for LENR is the ability to detect and characterize the power of the LENR reaction from the number of neutrinos that the reaction produces.


    Currently, a fission reactor produces the neutrinos supplied for neutrino detection and research. But a LENR reactor could supply just as many neutrinos without the need for all the shielding required for a fission reactor. In addition, the LENR reactor could be located very near to the neutrino detector. This close proximity of the neutrino source to the neutrino detector could magnify the neutrino signal many times because of the inverse square law with the placement of the source within mere feet of the detector will bring in preference to hundreds or thousands of miles.


    This future use of the LENR reaction by science is just another exciting advancement that the its acceptance of the LENR reaction will bring to the advancement in the search for knowledge.

  • But it does have particles. So very Axil.

    Alan Smith


    For 28 years, research into LENR has centered on a narrow vision about "excess heat" and the calorimetry procedures and pitfalls that have been used to characterize that excess heat. But recently, indications of emissions of these hard to detect particles could be the major energy conduit for energy release that carries the energy away from the LENR reaction to the far field. Any new methods that advance the detection and characterization of subatomic particles are supportive of the need to determine the particle emission profiles of the LENR reaction.


    There is a important place for particle detection methods in LENR science. R. Mills claims hydrinos as a particle output of his technology, both Holmlid and Rossi claim mesons and muons as LENR reactants and output products. Piantelli has seen proton emissions from his LENR research, and there has been and continues to be numerous speculative claims based on solid methods from top tier LENR researchers about "exotic neutral particles". Recently, MFMP has joined the dozens of other experimenters that have used and are still using photo emulsions to detect strange particles.


    Your negative opinion toward particle detection methods are continuing to undermine and contribute to the lack of LENR research progress that has stagnated LENR research effort over the last quarter century. As on of the leaders in the LENR community,your negativity toward particle detection is not helpful to the LENR effort going forward..

  • Ot is fair and proper to suggest the application of new discoveries in science and engineering to the LENR endeavor, thanks.



    Your fine Axil. Just keep bringing the news forget to forgive the others. I am trying to mean that now but... if you ever really get bothered by the pest I can be reached in chat.

    I fail to see how you arrive at that idea. Never negative.

    You use the concept of particles against both me and LENR as a tool of ridicule. Be mindful of the principle of wave/particle duality.

    Wave–particle duality is the concept in quantum mechanics th at every particle or quantic entity may be partly described in terms not only of particles, but also of waves. It expresses the inability of the classical concepts "particle" or "wave" to fully describe the behavior of quantum-scale objects. As Albert Einstein wrote:[1]


    It seems as though we must use sometimes the one theory and sometimes the other, while at times we may use either. We are faced with a new kind of difficulty. We have two contradictory pictures of reality; separately neither of them fully explains the phenomena of light, but together they do.


    Every waveform no matter how complex can also be described as a particle for the sake of conceptual simplification (quasiparticle) even if that waveform is comprised of an indeterminate number(trillions) of sub waveforms as occurs in much of condensed matter physics.

    A LENR reactor producing significant amounts of excess heat will be a source of far more neutrino flux as any current neutron based neutrino source because of the simple fact that the LENR based neutrino source can be placed very close to the neutrino detector. A desktop neutrino detector can in fact be deployed in the center of a ring of LENR producing devices. Consider the neutrino detector covered in and in contact with Rossi's Quark LENR reactor chips.

    And how ?
