    BERKELEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Brillouin Energy Corp., a leading company in the Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) field, announced that it has obtained a significant Patent associated with its design for a potentially world-changing “Hydrogen Hot Tube”, or “HHT™” reactor system from the European Union Patent Office. The Patent, which has been issued for a crucial component of the HHT reactor system, the “Controlled Electron Capture Reaction” (CECR) for “Energy Generation Apparatus and Method”, is dated September 26, 2018.

  • From the patent

    "

    [0023] The resulting low-energy neutron has a high cross section of reaction with other H, D, or T nuclei. The formation

    of a deuteron from protium releases ∼2.24MeV, the transition of D to T releases ∼6.26Mev and the transition to 4H with

    the subsequent β- decay releases ∼22.36MeV. Due to the wave nature of phonons and the associated density function

    driving the electron capture the overall momentum of the resulting 4H is low enough that β- is the decay function."


    I was wondering if Brilllouin was yoctospeed quick enough to detect 4H in their experiments

    from Wikipedia


    " with a half-life of about 139 ± 10 yoctoseconds, or (1.39 ± 0.10 × 10−22 seconds).[
    In the 1955 satirical novel The Mouse That Roared, the name quadium was given to the hydrogen-4 isotope

    that powered the Q-bomb that the Duchy of Grand Fenwick captured from the United States. "

    Two new words for me today -quadium and yocto

    Achieving successful cold fusion or low energy nuclear reaction is no longer a scientific challenge. Instead as Robert Godes of Brillouin has noted it is basically an engineering problem.

    ...

    Creating a low energy nuclear reaction in a laboratory environment is the easy part even high school students can do it.


    The rest of the article was excuses. And nothing seems to have changed since then. So how's that engineering problem going? Note the other companies mentioned in the article.

  • So what? Working at the cutting edge of technology means things go at their own pace. Who can predict what issues might arise that set them back?


    Just be grateful they aren't unadventurous types, satisfied to only work on basic tasks, where the answer is obvious and can be easily discovered by simple folk.


    ...Like calculating the thermal resistance of a diving suit, for instance. Or arriving at the momentous realisation that breathing in gunsmoke isn't the best thing for one's health... ;)


    Horses for courses, and all that.

    It read reserved and reasonable to me. If I were Godes, or George and read that now (6 years later), I would be happy with what I said back then. Considering their small budget, novelty of the science, their unique approach, they are making solid, steady progress...or at least that is what their latest results show. Remarkable if those numbers hold up, and I cannot see why not. No telling how much further along they would be now, with an unlimited budget, and larger engineering staff.


    I never understood though, why they did not team up with a deep pocket, energy based company to more quickly bring it too commercial viability? That is what I would do, but then I am not in Godes shoes. He claims he could be making much more money doing something else, and this is a labor of love. Must be, because it is not easy doing R/D while constantly having to scrounge up money to make payroll.

    With a COP of 1.5 or so at best the energy based company's were not interested.

    Maybe if Godes gets it up to 2.4 ish in the next few months they may be.


    Its not just an engineering problem..probably Godes knew that


    Its understanding of the basic process.. and knowing what to change to get the COP up.

    Now where are those gamma and nuclear isomer measurements??
