CleanHME: new EU-funded LENR research project

  • Konrad Czerski [CleanHME leader] toolbox in Szczecin

    ... "Nuclear experiments at very low energies which are mainly devoted to astrophysical problems of the creation of the chemical elements in the universe or to applied research relevant to developing new nuclear energy sources based both on nuclear fusion and fission.

    The main aim of the new accelerator system is to study nuclear reactions at the lowest possible energies for which atomic degrees of freedom are important and the target surface should be atomically clean.

    Since the investigated reactions take place far below the Coulomb barrier and the corresponding cross sections decrease very fast with the diminishing projectile energies, we need a high current ion source with very good energy definition. Target cleanness is important because any target surface impurities lead to a reduction in the energy of the projectiles and disturb the atomic processes we would like to study. Thus, ultra-high vacuum (UHV) conditions at the target chamber as well as surface physics diagnostics of the targets used are necessary."

  • An article about CleanHME on Horizon 2020 site…etal-systems-clean-energy

    note that it raised the attention of old hater Sylvie Coyaud (ok, agains Rossi might be founded)…fleischmann-pons-revival/

  • Thanks for bringing this to our attention AlainCo , I was wondering when the first round of attacks were going to be seen. Problem with people like Coyaud is that gets obsessed with the topic and can start harassing people as she has done in the past with Carpintieri and Cardone.

    Edit to add: I read the blog piece, I wish they had the same kind of irk against real wastes of money as ITER.

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

  • Problem with people like Coyaud is that gets obsessed with the topic and can start harassing people as she has done in the past with Carpintieri and Cardone.

    So that we are on the same page: the article was written by Leonid Schneider, who caught wind of the story from Sylvie Coyaud.

    That said, this Schneider unfortunately is very good at going for the jugular. Maybe too good? In reading the piece, it came across to me that he tried so hard being a smart ass, the CF funding became secondary. LENR is used to hit men like him, and I doubt it will have any impact on the HERMES/CleanHME teams. Surely they knew this was coming, and were prepared.

    I thought it was petty, and unprofessional the way he treated Celani, and Pekka Peljo. No reason for it, as they both have solid credentials. Yes, they believe in CF, but so what? He could have made his case without the personal attack IMO. Then to criticize them for having no female scientists on the team. Like how many are there in all of LENR...maybe 2, and he dings them for that!

    And if you are reading this Leonid: believing Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquie, and D3 work against COVID does not make one (MFMP) a conspiracy nut. There are plenty of studies to back that up. Now get over it. The money has been allotted, and there is nothing you can do about it. May as well join the rest of us in wishing the 2 teams success,

    Uppsala University, Department of Chemistry - BMC

    Uppsala University is a broad research university with a strong international position. The ultimate goal

    is to conduct education and research of the highest quality and relevance to make a long-term difference in

    society. Our most important asset is all the individuals who, with their curiosity and commitment, do

    Uppsala University to one of the country's most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has just over 45,000

    students, more than 7,000 employees and a turnover of approximately SEK 7 billion.

    The Department of Chemistry-BMC is an international environment with employees and students from all over the world.

    At the department, research and teaching is conducted at the intersection of biochemistry and organic chemistry

    as well as analytical chemistry. See also

    Project description: The project is part of a newly formed EU consortium, described on the web pages http: // and, for the purpose of

    groundbreaking research in LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions). The overall goal is to include

    specially oriented experiments be able to identify which materials may be LENR active and which

    experimental methods required to activate the material and generate large amounts of energy.

    Tasks: To conduct experimental research within LENR, which means identifying and

    carry out research projects that lead to increased knowledge in this area. New ideas and perspectives are

    a prerequisite for success. The research projects are expected to be carried out both locally and in

    international cooperation. The experiments are a continuation of projects that have already begun at the department for

    analytical chemistry.

    A special area of responsibility is to continue the development of the existing data acquisition system and to

    further develop the data analysis programs. Furthermore, the important task of implementing a new one is included

    instrumentation that will be necessary to be able to carry out the various experiments.

    Qualification requirements: Doctoral degree, or a foreign degree that is deemed to correspond to a doctoral degree,

    in physics, preferably nuclear physics. In the selection among eligible applicants, special emphasis will be placed on

    scientific skill. Many years of experience in advanced experimental research are necessary, as well

    good experience of experiments within LENR is desirable.

    Great emphasis is placed on personal qualities such as being enterprising and driving research.

    Salary: Individual salary setting.

    Access: As soon as agreed.
