Russia LENR Developments

  • Sure, you can never be absolutely certain of anything. Theories can only be disproved by experimental data. The critical mass theory if applied to cold fusion can be simply ruled out by experiment one way or another, I only proposed it because it could be one possible explanation (out of many other possibilities) of why there have been so many failures to replicate transition metal-H or D gas experiments. No working reactors after all the time and energy spent worldwide in research over more than 30 yrs. As far as I know there is no published data using >Kg quantities of cold fusion reactor core material equivalent to the U235 masses used in fission reactor cores. These experiments need to be done and replicated if they work, simple as that.

  • These experiments need to be done and replicated if they work, simple as that

    doing homemade nuclear fusion is anything but simple and cheap

    e.g a 50 litre tank of deuterium costs about $ also need a permit..

    fusor forum has some indications of costs to get homemade neutron rich weak fusion ~$10000.

    there are lots of other non-simple considerations.

  • Home nuclear fusion doesn't have to be expensive.

    I'd suggest that if a lab has a modest amount of pre-existing electrical equipment, a plasma based system utilizing the negative resistance regime would be pretty affordable. A simple oscilloscope, showing the current oscillations (ion acoustic waves) will show that you are in the correct region, the treatment of fuel may be simpler (no need for long soak times if any at all), ordinary hydrogen may work well, and you can control various parameters in real time very quickly. I think such a system could be cheaper than many powder based systems.

  • A simple way of producing D gas is to use D20 as Alan S suggests and add HCl or H2SO4 to it to make a say 2N dilute acid solution. Then add one litre of this to the reactor mix of Kg Ti Fe Ni etc with a quantity of Zn coarse powder or turnings added to the base of the reactor. This reacts with the D20 acid to release nascent D + H to be directly absorbed by the transition metals within the now totally sealed reactor. Let the reactor sit in a bomb proof bunker for up to two months monitoring temp & pressure without any further modifications. Any further suggestions to this plan, anybody?

  • Yes- it has been reported by some that hydrogen should be kept out of deuterium-based LENR systems as it outcompetes the D2 for lattice vacancies to the detriment of energy output.. Also there is an unsubstantiated (IMHO) idea that Chlorine is a LENR 'poison'. So HCl is out on two counts. To make pure deuterium gas drop metallic sodium into D2O to make a strong alkali (NaOD). Then add magnesium metal powder (readily available and cheap). You will get a brisk exothermic reaction where the magnesium becomes 'sodium-magnesium deuteroxide' and free deuterium is evolved equivalent to around 20% of the weight of magnesium you use. So 200 ml of D20 100 grams of magnesium and 5 grams of metallic sodium will yield 5 Mol of D2 and leave enough D20 to start the next batch. 5Mol of D2 is 110 litres approx at STP. Total cost about £100 if you buy 2 litres or more of D2O from Cambridge Isotopes as I do. I do this in a steel pressure cylinder, so bleed off the D2O as I need it.

  • Critical mass of pure uranium-235 will have a mass of 52 kg and will experience around 15 spontaneous fission events per second - so what would be the critical mass of a Ti-D fusion reaction producing 180 measured neutrons/s ?

    Critical mass is an empirical approach to fission. There is no Ti-D fusion that produces multiple neutrons in one step what you would need for a fission like chain process.

    In fact we see a critical radius in LENR and this radius is in um range!

  • Dec 10, 2012... Lerner .. this may be related to aneutronic LENR.. certainly not to U235 neutronic fission

    The plasmoids emit soft X-rays with energy in the range of several

    kiloelectron volts. X-ray pinhole images have demonstrated that the plasmoids are tiny,

    with radii of a few microns to tens of microns. 9-10

    Through a plasma instability, the electrons then

    transfer part of their energy to the ions, with a typical delay (in our experiments) of

    ~10 ns. Ion collisions, generating fusion reactions and neutrons, then occur through the

    intersection of trapped beams.16 When the ion and electron beams have exhausted the

    magnetic energy that confines the plasmoid, and partially or wholly evacuated the

    particles in the plasmoid, the fusion reactions end

  • So you are basically proposing that every plasmoid or fusion event is totally independent of any other fusion event, that is neutron or energy released by one event never propagates further fusion events? The trouble is none of these mechanisms in LENR are fully understood and we only have a selection of theoretical models to choose from. So we need more, I agree it is empirical, experimentation, to decide OK maybe not in one step but how about neutron multiplication in multiple steps? These fusion reactions can sequentially release two neutrons:

    Whereas U235 fission:

    releases two or three neutrons depending on which reaction occurs. This is why I'm proposing that in the absence of empirical data disproving critical mass may be involved in fusion as it is in fission, further empirical experiments are required. This cannot be simply ruled out on theory alone because there are simply too many unknowns in cold fusion. Thanks for the info on deuterium production, Alan S, nice to have a free exchange of ideas on this forum. I've found a source of 1.5 Kg TiFe 70/30 % powder for only £40, which brings the cost of a test run down to about £250.

  • So you are basically proposing that every plasmoid or fusion event is totally independent of any other fusion event

    Totally independent?

    Not at all... within a 2 micron cube there are ~10(11) atoms .. if 1/100 are active D and if of these 1/10,000,000 are fusing per second

    that still leaves 100 D atoms that could interact with each other, in that cube.

    giving 50 Watts/ cm3 power output.. assuming an even distribution of these hotspots in the cm3.

    since there are very few free neutrons measured in LENR .. the interaction in the hotspots is by another means... magnetic?

    Neutrons and protons are involved .. but not as in U235 fission.

    We transmute elements.

    Today we offer a small photo gallery of the Center “Synthestech”, as well as the project manager Vladislav Karabanov answers to the questions.

    Question: Vladislav, many new people have appeared among those interested in the project, so once again in a few words about the project.

    Vladislav Karabanov: Yes, despite the large amount of materials about our project “Synthestech”, which we have laid out, we need to tell about the project again and again.

    It seems to me that we are a little modest in our materials, so the followers does not always understand the global significance of our project.



    Please, note, that project tokens can be purchased just now with a bonus of 38%. Project Token costs 1,5 USD, but today, given the provided bonus, you can buy it for a bit more than 1 USD. This is a temporary offer. So do not miss your chance!
