New USPTO Patent Applications from Industrial Heat

  • Well the one degree temperature rise wouldn't really convince the examiner as being useful tech or that it even works. All that tech for a one degree rise in your central-heating system for example? Some Russian workers presented data at the Sochi meeting showing a 25-30 degree increase compared to control.....what's wrong with IH, maybe they have Rossi-itis (afraid to make any outlandish claims).

    First I have seen this IH IP Holdings USPTO patent application. Has a 15 Nov 2018 date on it, but the initial app was filed 24 Nov 2015. Does not appear to be Rossi related:


    "EXOTHERMIC REACTION ANALYSIS BY PRE-REACTION SAMPLE RETENTION
    Reaction processes occurring within an exothermic reaction reactor are investigated by comparing changes to at least one material in the reaction to a non-reacted sample of the material. Prior to the reaction, a sample or "coupon" of the material is removed and retained. The coupon of material is withheld from the reactor. The material is placed in the reactor and at least one exothermic reaction is triggered and sustained. Following the exothermic reaction, the material is removed from the reactor. Both the material and the coupon are then analyzed to ascertain changes to the material that did not occur to the sample. These changes are indicative of processes that occurred in the reactor."

    I'm no patent expert but there seems to be nothing novel in the above to justify a patent. See for example basic patent requirements: https://www.bitlaw.com/patent/requirements.html

  • When analyzing a patent portfolio, I put them into three categories:


    A. Family jewels. These are patents that another company needs to enter your market. They broadly cover a company's main technology.

    B. Implementation specific patents. These would cover any direct copies of a device, but could be designed around with different, non-infringing implementations.

    C. Unimplemented ideas. These cover variations or other ideas thought up by the inventors, but are unlikely to be good enough to be used in products or are so narrow as to be of little value.


    In LENR, there are no issued A patents yet. The patent office will not issue broad patents of over unity devices until there is an accepted theory or widely replicated results. There could be some B and C patents, but only if they are crafted in such a way that there is patentable content that does not depend on over unity claims. For instance, someone may have a unique way of layering the fuel and extracting the heat. If written carefully, it may apply to non-LENR heat sources but still cover an important, useful technique for building a LENR device.


    Even in other technology areas, there are few A patents. The idea of just writing a patent then licensing if for tons of money seldom happens. The A patents that do exist are usually because the inventor perfected something that works and then built a company around the idea while writing patents to cover the proven ideas. It is possible that some of the BLP or Brillouin patent applications will eventually issue as A patents, but they are still not likely to be so broad as to preclude other techniques that will evolve as more is learned.


    This IH patent application is about how to test for over unity and does not cover a particular way to attain over unity. It is likely a C patent, but filing it may still be a good strategy for IH. The big problem with LENR is credibility, and patents like this, if issued, will give them some degree of credibility with potential investors and partners. Even though it does not directly cover overunity devices, they can use it to show they have some original ideas and expertise as judged by the USPTO. It is hard for investors to spend the time and money required to fully understand the value of untested ideas. Issued patents show that a company has ideas that are original in the judgment of an impartial patent examiner.

    Proportional-Integral-Derivative Radio Frequencies Synchronized plasma Coupled Harmonic Closed Loop Feedback Oscilllator to Maintain a Constant Resonance Oscillating Harmonic Enhanced Exothermic Reaction Within Metal Lattice During Hydrogen Loading to Generating Efficient Exothermic Thermoelectric, Mechanical Power and Graphene Nano Tubes

    Abstract: Radio frequency (RF) power, and in particular microwaves, are used as a source of heat for plasma Exothermic Enhanced Reactions (EERs) in a metal lattice, into which hydrogen is loaded in the presence of lithium or graphene.

    Carbon nanotubes appear capable of carrying immense current densities and generating huge magnetic fields.

  • Carbon nanotubes appear capable of carrying immense current densities and generating huge magnetic fields.


    Carbon nanotubes are perfect size cavities and as NPP2.0 predicts the electrons should form 4D spin-spin coupled orbits around the ring. As a LENR setup this could be very promising.

    Weher/how they will be able to connect the spin currents to a classical magnet current is not clear to me.

    United States Patent Application 20190170896 June 6, 2019

    INDUCED NUCLEAR EXCITATION TRANSFER


    Abstract:

    An excitation transfer in a nuclear state is energetically induced. The excitation transfer may be induced by heating a structure to which a nuclear species is mechanically coupled. The heating may be applied as a triangular heat pulse. The heating may generate a stress effect in the structure. The stress effect may produce vibratory phonons. The excitation transfer may include up-conversion. The excitation transfer may include radioactive decay. The decay rate of a radioactive species may be increased to a rate higher than the natural half-life of the radioactive species. Energy may be harnessed from decay of the radioactive species. A decay product having industrial or medical use may be rapidly produced. The decay rate of the radioactive species may be lowered to reduce emissions for safe storage or transportation.

  • New IH IP Holdings USPTO Patent 10,385,468 August 20, 2019

    Plasma frequency trigger


    Abstract

    An exothermic reaction of hydrogen/deuterium loaded into a metal or alloy is triggered by controlling the frequency of a hydrogen/deuterium plasma in a reaction chamber. The plasma frequency is controlled by adjusting its electron density, which in turn is controlled by adjusting the pressure within the reaction chamber. An exothermic reaction is generated at certain discrete plasma frequencies, which correspond to the optical phonon modes of D-D, H-D, and H--H bonds within the metal lattice. For example, in palladium metal, the frequencies are 8.5 THz, 15 THz, and 20 THz, respectively.

    Interesting from a théoretical point of view.


    It reminds me the frequency of Dennis letts dual laser experiments.
