Yasuhiro Iwamura on the Cold Fusion Now! podcast

  • Ruby Carat publish a new Poscast interview of Yasuhiro Iwamura

    The podcasts of Cold Fusion Now are really the place to be.

    The artcle too is informative with introductions of his thin-film LENR research, and remind those experimens may have revealed a key fact to help to discover the theory.


    Yasuhiro Iwamura on the Cold Fusion Now! podcast


    Dr. Yasuhiro Iwamura was the guest on the Cold Fusion Now! podcast with Ruby Carat. Dr. Iwamura is a Research Professor in the Condensed Matter Nuclear Science division at the Research Center

    for Electron Photon Science at Tohoku University. He has been dividing his time there between engineering a second Metal Hydrogen Energy generator with Clean Planet Inc. , as well as continuing his signature transmutation work with Mitsubishi.

  • That was an excellent, and very informative interview. Seems like LENR research in Japan is still alive, and well. One of the reasons Iwamura attributes their success, is "cooperation, and communication" between groups. They talk all the time, and meet regularly to discuss developments. In other words, they do not keep secrets from each other. Something McKubre has been urging the rest of the field to do for years.

    Only exception to this cooperation, is between Iwamura's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries transmutation work, and Clean Planet, where he concentrates most of his time and effort on XH.

  • The Tohoku lab looks well equipped.

    May be in 2019 they will look at the LENR process more in media res..

    rather than just before and after.

    But catching those picosecond and nanosecond gamma moves is tricky( in the <50 keV range).


    "Various techniques such as XRD, SOR-XRD, SOR-XAFS, TEM, STEM/EDS, ERDA, ICP-MS, and others have been used for material analyses of experimental samples before and after use.

    By XRD analyses, co-existence of ZrO2 and Zr2Ni was identified for PNZ-type samples. It was observed that the metal phase was fundamentally the same before and after H(D)-charging runs,

    but the existence of hydride was seen by the lower-angle-side sift of XRD NiZr2 peaks.

    By STEM/EDS analyses, we could observe that nano-structure of sample did not change much before and after use. Ni and Pd atoms were seen in same localized zones in homogeneous ZrO2 supporting zone.

    Sometimes, NiZr2 zones were surrounded by ZrO2 layers and particles of Pd and Ni were existing in inter-crystalline layer zones, as observed by TEM.

    For CNZ-type samples, crystal phases of ZrO2 and NiO were seen before H(D)-charge runs, and after the run Ni and ZrO2 were seen.

    NiZr2 components were not found in CNZ-type samples. Nano-structured CuO and NiO portions were seen as randomly distributed in ZrO2

    supporter zone before the run, and alloy-like Cu-Ni nanoparticles were seen after the run. For PNZ6 sample which provided the highest excess power level of 24 W per ca. 100g sample, Ni and Pd were not oxidized before and after runs as observed by the SOR-XAFS analysis.

  • Shane D. Maybe Japan but definitely neither synteztech or Deneum.

    ST guy, in his recent video, promised quick returns when they start selling 'bio active addititves' or food supplements as we call them.

    He is certain already that the metals obtained in his reactor will possess healing properties compared to regular counterparts. I was skipping through his presentation and all the right words to make idiots to buy it were there: Tibet, ancinet etc.

    I already see how 'Shark fins plus Titanium' is flying off the shelves.

  • But catching those picosecond and nanosecond gamma moves is tricky.

    Around timemark 13.30 Ruby mentioned the importanceof small impurities in LENR

    eg Calcium was needed to make Pd work. but why??? which set of gammas might be operative?

    The problem is that Calcium has six isotopes that might be responsible including Ca41- with abundance of less than 0.1%
