    Abstract

    The effects of electronic screening on the cross sections and reactivities for the nuclear reactions between light nuclei in Pd and Ni is studied. We consider the applicability of the theory of thermonuclear burning in stars to the D-D nuclear reaction in metals. The screening model based on the mean field potential of the electron cloud in the metal plasma is used. We discuss the specifics of the screening for the H (D) atoms embedded in vacancies and divacancies. High concentration of hydrogen isotopes segregated to monovacancies and divacancies in face-centered cubic (fcc) metals such as Ni and Pd with densities of

    ∼6×1023atom/cm3, makes the hydrogen cluster a favorable active site for the fusion reaction. Still the observation of a nuclear reaction requires an accumulation of energy in D nuclei of at least several eV, which is far above what can be achieved in the thermal heating experiments.

    “I began to compile this review in the fall of 2017. The reason being, I had asked a few editors of LENR news sites what they thought of the claims being made by Global Energy Corporation. Each editor asked me to provide any recent follow up to those claims. None that I could find; so I decided to compile this review as a frame of reference for the question: What are your opinions of these claims?” - Greg Goble


    I would like to hear the opinions of LENR Forum members. I find it odd that there is little to no discussion at LENR sites about GEC or their claims. If Rossi, Brillouin, the MFMP, or Randy Mills, were making similar claims, it would be discussed, scrutinized, and become the focus of our attention.


    Please keep comments on topic... Are these claims truthful or a scam?

  • Rossi, Brillouin, the MFMP, or BLP (Randolph Mills) all believe they are sincerely on the right track. The Global Energy Company will be exonerated soon at the next International Conference on Cold Fusion since it is being held (where all things made of silicon including nano-engineering with state-of the art digital nano-engineering) i.e. The Notorious Silicon Valley Hive of Entrepreneurs! Their Queen Bees are the unusual combinations of entrepreneurial representatives like Larry Page, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos who all have interests in promoting the invention of new energy resources. So I look forward to the meeting - the future is in their hands!

  • Exploring patent space history once again and came across an old one by Pamela A. Boss, of GEC.

    In rereading it I got to wondering if this device would aid and quicken an Edisodian Cold Fusion exploration of various combinations of metamaterials in cathodes or anodes.


    On another note. Lately I've been exploring recent advances in nano sensors and nano emitters... Quantum dots and whatnot, as they may help aid in control and increased output from solid state and wet cell reactors. Particularly curious of the role Terra Hertz nano tech might play.


    Anyways, I wonder if Pam or Larry have used this patented device for early Cold Fusion research.


    Interestingly

    This lab tool has not two, but three electrodes, the third being a,

    "reference electrode extending through the cell body". Does this third electrode act as a passive or active sensor in some way?

    Great for an Edisodian Approach

    It does not rely on glue making it robust and reusable. Rather it relies on a NASA engineered,

    "O-ring interposed between the cell body and window provides a leak-tight seal, obviating the need for epoxy cement or other sealing compounds so that the cell may be easily disassembled".

    Best for Last

    I think the idea of putting the whole Cold Fusion cell, being so small, inside the spectrometer, is brilliant.

    "cell body may be to made of chemically resistant material and be small enough to fit inside the sample chamber of a spectrometer".

    What a real time data stream to dream of. I'm a layman so I'm not certain if this is good for it or not.

    Abstract

    An electrochemical cell comprises a cell body having a sample chamber, a working electrode fitted through the cell body and extending into the sample chamber; a counter electrode extending through the cell body into the sample chamber; a reference electrode extending through the cell body into the sample chamber; a window which fits over the cell body; and a cap threaded to the cell body for sealing the window against the cell body. An O-ring fitted between window and the cell body provide a leak proof seal. The cell body may be to made of chemically resistant material and be small enough to fit inside the sample chamber of a spectrometer. An O-ring interposed between the cell body and window provides a leak-tight seal, obviating the need for epoxy cement or other sealing compounds so that the cell may be easily disassembled. The cell may be used to monitor electrochemical reactions of moisture and oxygen sensitive materials, as well as electrochemical reactions of corrosive materials.
