The NEDO Initiative - Japan's Cold Fusion Programme

  • Takahashi is old school..theoretically... but he knows his own team's experimental work very well..

    Mills experimental verification of his own theory is sketchy..


    Aside from Mills' sketchy self verification would you say Holmid and Co is less sketchy and closer to breaking theoretical grips? Would be nice if researchers really looked at a machine producing power based on another theory.Trying to fill holes in there own theories.

  • We discussed it last summer. Most likely its magnetic cooling either from H*-H* going back to H-H what can be a strong kinetic reaction or from an other nuclear magnetic moment taking over energy.


    This effect is nothing new as said. We did see it also but in dense powder the delta T is much smaller than in a gaseous atmosphere.


    The only point that can be discussed is whether the event causes an induced current in the TC or directly cools down the end of the pipe.


    So you turned about one ton of kerosene into CO2 just to discuss with Takahashi how attributing his TC4 temperature fluctuations, which can be easily explained as ordinary cooling events caused by air conditioning of his lab at Kobe Univ., to weird magnetic cooling phenomena involving mysterious H* atoms. Very cool indeed!


    Anyway, as reported by RobertBryant (1), Takahashi said that "it is a silly idea if people are imaging non-exising air-conditioning of Kobe U MHE facility. The MHE cabin is precisely air-conditioned by Spindol AC to be 25 plus minus 0.1 deg C". You did report instead that "No fan is even close to the reactor...." (2). Who is wrong?

    I completely understand when lost people like Ascoli need a Vodka to understand the weird phenomena of LENR....


    Maybe you are right on this point.

    Tell me how many bottles are needed to start feeling excess heat and seeing asterisks everywhere!

    Such a waste of kerosene,, I vaguely remember in an email where

    Wyttenbach mentioned bathing at Nishibara .. the siteof boiling of the Christian martyrs

    by the Shogun in Nagasaki mukashimukashi,..there are so many things to do in japan..


    I just sent ProfessorTakahashi an email and Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu

    I also enquired about these silly assertions

    "

    The TC4 fluctuation end at 18:30 in the evening when people went home and turned off the AC cooling. "


    there is no need to postulate the existence of any nuclear AHE to explain the oscillatory behavior shown by the TC4 signal on many graphs of the most recent paper published by Takahashi et al. (1). The sequence of down spikes can be easily interpreted as the effect of Ordinary Cooling Events (OCEs) due to the intermittent operation of an Air Conditioning (AC) unit installed inside the cabin which hosts the Kobe's calorimeter

    You need to give it a break.

  • Dr. Akito Takahashi just uploaded this paper published at JCF21 to the Researchgate page of project NEDO.


    It talks about more recent experiments and sustained excess heat of 200 W/g of Ni based composite nano powder. Looking better after each interaction.


    https://www.researchgate.net/p…_of_Nano-Metal_and_HD-Gas


    Summary and Conclusion Remarks:


    Repeated re-calcination is effective to enhance sustainable excess thermal power by the interaction of Ni-based binary nano-composite metal powder with H (or D)-gas. Baking treatment between elevated temperature runs is effective to enhance excess thermal power for the second re-calcination, but the enhancement has saturated for the third re-calcination. To eliminate the gas turbulence effect for calorimetry, condition of homogeneous temperature in sample region will be tested to enhance more AHE. Excess thermal power reached at the level of 200 W/kg-sample continuing for several weeks or more, by the elevated temperature interaction of either D-gas or H-gas and Ni-based binary nano-composite powders supported in zirconia flakes. Further extension study towards application of industrial clean portable primary thermal energy source is encouraging.

    I certainly Hope to see LENR helping humans to blossom, and I'm here to help it happen.

  • Hmm, the abstract says "200 w/kg" or 0.2 w/g. Not much but the energy output over time (days or weeks) could be substantial.


    Edit to add: Moved your post here magicsound as the idea is not to comment on the News/Media/library thread. Hope it doesn´t bother you ( Curbina ).


    Thanks for the move. I was aware of the "no comments" request but thought it was important enough to mention. It's more appropriate here.

  • Hmm, the abstract says "200 w/kg" or 0.2 w/g. Not much but the energy output over time (days or weeks) could be substantial.

    Indeed magicsound , but I recall that in the ICCF22 presentation they talked about starting with 0.1 w/g and having already achieved 100 w/kg , so in the last year they have improved a 100%, but most importantly, they can repeat it at will, and use the same powder again and again.

    I certainly Hope to see LENR helping humans to blossom, and I'm here to help it happen.

  • I wonder what role zirconia has.

    Perhaps nobody knows, as for copper-zirconia catalysts


    In conclusion, zirconia phase composition clearly has a dramatic effect on the catalytic behavior of the final material; however, actually, the effect cannot be rationalized or clearly explained.

    Despite the large number of studies on this topic, the only trend observed so far with a good approximation is that the better the Cu dispersion,

    the higher the activity of the catalyst


    but speculation is not new..

    as with Ahern's 'bread.


    Ahern explained the nanocomposite using an analogy.

    “The nanocomposite is like raisin bread, where the raisins are equivalent to the nickel-alloy islands and the zirconium oxide is equivalent to the bread,” he said. “The bread keeps the raisins from touching each other. In the alloy, if the particles end up touching each other, they coalesce, so you need some isolation material, and the zirconium oxide does that.”

    That leads us onto the topic of 'spillover catalysts' where the borders of the catalyst 'raisins' are where the action is. Mizuno's 'burnishing' method would seem to produce similar physical effects.

  • Beyond being a catalyst, Zirkonia dust probably indeed also serves to prevent sintering of the metal dust that is applied.
