    This time we had the honor of interviewing Jacques Ruer, French Engineer and long time active researcher of LENR.



    He is one of the founders and currently the president of the French Society of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science [SFSNMC], and is a familiar figure in the LENR community. A regular attender and presenter at many conferences including the regular ICCF conferences held across the globe, Jacques kindly consented to be interviewed by the LENR forum team for our ‘Meet The Experimenters’ video series.



    Educated at the Ecole Centrale in Paris, France, Jacques has since worked in the fields of metals and metallurgy and as Deputy Director of Technology Development for Sapient, a large global company in the energy business involved in everything from the supply of drilling equipment to the latest in wind and solar systems. Recently retired and thus free to pursue his passions, he has decided to devote his full time to the field of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science Research.


    In this interesting interview, Jacques tells us about the reasons that led to the founding of the SFSNMC, the success of the third version of the bi-annual symposium of the SFSNMC in November 2020 (held in virtual mode and with great attendance, in spite of the technical challenges it presented), his expert techical opinion about the challenges of air calorimetry for LENR experiments, and also delves in his personal approach to the LENR field as an Engineer, while letting us know his cautiosly optimist hopes for the short term future of this fascinating field.

    MEET FRANCIS TANZELLA interview just published!



    Great news for our members and readers. We had the honor of interviewing Francis Tanzella, one of the "household" names in the LENR field, and who has been working in many of the research teams that have been able to succesfully replicate the results of Fleischmann and Pons, and has met and worked with many of the greatest minds behind the development of Cold Fusion LENR, and beyond.



    Francis Tanzella is a Chemist and Principal Scientist with the Energy Research Center in Northern California. He first confirmed the Fleischmann and Pons Anomalous Heat Effect at SRI International's lab in Menlo Park, California in 1989. There, along with a team led by Michael McKubre, he correlated the excess heat generated in palladium-deuterium cells to the amount of helium produced by the cell, among other LENR discoveries. Frank Tanzella has also evaluated and tested the Brillouin Hot-Tube energy generator now in development by Brillouin Energy Corporation and continues to evaluate various technologies vying to find the recipe to clean energy from the hydrogen in water.


    Francis Tanzella, as portrayed by Matt Hottwarth in "Discover Cold Fusion" by Ruby Carat and Matt Hottwarth, Curtiss Press.



    In this interview Francis updates us about how things are going on Brillouin Energy and the fascinating engineering challenges that represents turning Brillouin's Intellectual Property into a commercializable device, while still not having a deep understanding of the theoretical aspects and finding ways to create the very specific conditions in which the reaction works.


    We also get to know a brief glimpse about other projects he is involved in, within LENR and outside the field.


    We then get a peek into the personal side, the fascinating characters he has had the honor to meet in all these 32 years, and the friendships that he has forged, how he cultivates them, and how he has managed to take part and be a key member of many of the most succesfull LENR projects and teams with people from all around the world.


    We hope you enjoy this interview and get this important first hand update, about one of the companies that is probably closer to become the first one to put a LENR device in the market.


    Godspeed, Francis, we loved interviewing you and hope to have you again back soon with great news!!!

    MEET SVEINN ÓLAFFSON video interview just published!


    In the next installment of our MEET THE EXPERIMENTERS Series, our members and readers are invited to get acquainted and updated with the fascinating work of Dr. Sveinn Ólaffson.


    Dr. Sveinn Ólafsson is a Research Professor at the School of Engineering and Natural Sciences at University of Iceland. Along with teaching young PhDs, Dr. Ólafsson worked in hydrogen storage research. From his work in Hydrogen, when he first learnt about the ideas of Dr. Leif Holmlid proposing his finding of ultra-dense hydrogen (UDH), he suspected that this could be the phenomenon behind Cold Fusion, and joined efforts with Dr. Holmlid, being one of the two persons, along Sindre Zeiner-Gundersen, that has been able to reproduce independently most of Dr. Holmlid's observations about the properties of UDH.


    In this interview we are taken through a fascinating presentation that Dr. Ólaffson uses to illustrate his answers to the questions of our interviewing team.


    After a brief introduction Dr. Ólaffson takes Us through the fantastic voyage of discovery starting for the interesting and not entirely well understood characeristics of the Hydrogen Rydberg state, and how it's theorized to form the ultra dense state. From this he proceeds to left us green with envy of the absolutely georgeous and state of the art new laboratory reactors and instruments he has been able to implement since has received funding to proceed with the research.


    The main Instrument used to detect and accurately identify the particles emitted by UHD when stimulated with high power laser pulses of brief duration.


    He also explains how he has been able to reproduce most if not all of the signals and results of Dr. Holmlid, but has come to some different conclusions that he needs to verify, as the results of using improved equipment can lead to different, surprising and intriguing interpretations.


    We get an exclusive when Dr. Ólaffson shares with us some never before published images of the puzzling behavior of the laser pulse as it approaches the UDH target, results that generate more questions than answers.


    A short sequence of video is shown to us to illustrate some observations of traces in the cloud chamber, which provides a hint that what is produced by stimulating UHD with the laser pulses, is more complex than muons.


    Dr. Ólaffson also shares with us the next steps and questions that he aims to answer with the ongoing research, to be performed in the next 2 years with the funding secured.


    We hope you enjoy this interview about this fascinating, promising and hughly successful in publishing approach to LENR.


    The LENR-Forum Team was honored to have this opportunity and is proud to be able to share this video with our following community. We wish Dr. Ólaffson the best and hope to get great news from his research in the short term.

    New interview with Francesco Celani posted!


    In the newly released chapter of our MEET THE EXPERIMENTERS Series, we got the pleasure of talking with Italian Physics Experimentalist Professor Francesco Celani, who is currently member of the CleanHME European Union funded project.


    Dr. Francesco Celani is a physics experimentalist with a long career in conventional nuclear physics, focusing in particle emissions, sensitive measurement techniques, and the development of new sensors. Francesco has worked at CERN and ENEA, he also worked on establishing the reality of the low background neutron counts that led to the Grand Sasso laboratory being certified for nuclear research. Discoverer of the "rate effect" of photo multipliers, he also was one of the first to observe higher temperature capability behavior in superconducting junctions that were found to have certain impurities, but only to have his discovery rejected by a commission formed to analyze it, because superconductors working at these higher temperatures were (at that time) believed to be impossible, a phenomenon effect that, only a year later, was discovered independently by two German scientists that went on to win the Nobel prize for their work.

    It was when he was still working in superconducting materials that the announcement of Fleischmann and Pons was made in 1989, and he soon got involved in Cold Fusion, now LENR, initially looking for neutron emissions, where he discovered the need for non equilibrium conditions to be associated with the higher neutron counts, which has been an essential part of his research in this field, and for which he has kept finding strong evidence for maintaining and stimulating his interest in this research up to now, and into the foreseeable future.

    From left to right: Letts, Celani and Evans showing the constantan wire reactor at NIWeek, in 2012. Image Credit: Dennis Letts.


    In this interview Dr. Celani explains to us the reasons for focusing in the use of constantan and hydrogen instead of Pd and Deuterium.


    He also comments on the progress of the CleanHME project, its challenges and opportunities, and how he feels that this project has brought LENR research to the mainstream and has helped LENR researchers to gain respect from other fields of research.


    We also get to know interesting details of how the research on the reactor proposed by his team has been evolving in these years, and the current focus of the research associated with the flux of the hydrogen gas in the metal matrix, to enhance the production of excess heat.

    The latest findings of his research team, that will be presented at ICCF23, are related to this need of keeping hydrogen in permanent flux through the constantan wire, which is achieved with high power, brief duration electric pulses to enhance the anomalous heat production, which has resulted in the reactor now being capable of working at much higher temperatures and obtaining remarkably reproducible, and significantly higher amounts of excess heat, which is exactly what we are all hoping for!

    News on the progress in the replication of Frank Gordon's LEC


    In this week's Newsletter we have even more great news to share with our readers and members. The device invented by Frank Gordon known as the LEC, which has been shown to be possibly producing direct current and voltage from LENR, is being replicated live at LENR-Forum by our verified forum member Stevenson, who has already been able to discard that the effect is any kind of Galvanic current, and is also beginning testing with hydrogen soon. Frank Gordon has also updated us with news of other succesful replications and the amazing possibility of being able to reproduce the effect with simpler and cheaper electroplating. Follow and take part of this interesting, and quite possibly, easy to replicate development here:

    All ICCF 23 abstracts and video availabe for viewing:


    The ICCF 23 held virtually from Xiamen - China this week achieved some major milestones, and we will spend some months to fully absorb the extent of what was presented.


    Major improvements in reproducibility of excess heat, advances in theoretical understanding, new ways to stimulate the reactions, and new approaches in material preparation all contribute to the advancement of the field, which is also reaching recognition in terms of mainstream interest and funding from private and public sectors. It has taken 32 years to right many wrongs, but it seems we are finally reaching a threshold of reproducibility and independent validation of already known approaches that can potentially boost LENR interest and acceptation into the mainstream.


    You can find all the abstracts/papers and video presentations of the talks and posters at the following link, (it requires login but the information is available after registration).

  • New Interview with Alan Smith about his replication of the the LEC posted!


    Today we are proud to share with the LENR community the latest installment of our "Meet the Experimenters / Cold Talks" series in which we get a hands-on and frontline replication update from our very own Alan Smith at his laboratory, who has teamed up with Matt Lilley to join the increasing number of researchers that has been able to independently verify the so called LEC effect (Lattice Energy Converter) being developed by Frank Gordon and Harper Whitehouse.



    Alan Smith in his lab showing us a fresh out of the bath iron plated brass electrode for a quick LEC experiment. Image Credit: LENR-Forum Staff.


    For those that may be new to the concept, the LEC is a relatively simple to build experiment that produces a baffling effect: the creation of an spontaneous, small, but sustained and steady voltage and current, between electrodes co deposited with hydrogen by electrolytic means (so far has worked with Palladium but also with Iron!). The effect is consistent and very repeatable, but it has so far eluded a complete explanation.


    Join Ruby Carat and David Nygren as they interview Alan Smith about his recent participation in last months 14th IWHALM (held from August 29th to September 1st in Assisi, Italy), where Alan presented the concept and his early work on the LEC, and where the LEC replication (which was also presented in parallel by Jean Paul Biberian) took a centerpiece role, specially because of the relative simplicity and the high repeatability, which makes this effect potentially one of the most important breakthroughs in the field. One that can be verified and repeated by everyone interested.

    Alan Smith, talking directly from his laboratory, presents to us one of the stages of the LEC experiments he and Matt Lilley have been performing, and attempts a brief demonstration that seems to momentarily produce 350 millivolts...showing again the robustness of the LEC effect, even in the precarious conditions of an onscreen experimental demonstration.


    Alan then proceeds to provide us with an overview of his current thoughts on how the LEC works. His main hypothesis is that the hydrogen co-deposited under strain within the metallic lattice, is producing some type of low energy nuclear reaction that, in turn, gives rise to the production of a weak radiation emission robust enough to ionize the gases between the electrodes (separated by a very narrow gap), thus creating the voltage that is being measured, which can then be harnessed to perform work.

    Alan also discusses the chances and possibilities of this ever becoming an useful system for energy production, and -with some engineering improvements, some potential uses in the short term.

    We also get a brief but encouraging review of the ongoing replications, including the increasing number of LENR researchers that have already replicated the experiment, and explains how this number could increase significantly in a very short term.


    Some other very similar, and potentially linked and paralell developments, as Fabrice David's "Fusion Diode", are also briefly mentioned and discussed in relation to the LEC.

  • December LENR-Forum News.



    Dear LENR-forum community:



    On the final month of this history making year 2021 We are happy to bring you some exciting and uplifting news from the LENR trenches.



    Google's Cold Fusion inspired patent application captures DoE's interest:



    In spite of failing to reproduce classic Cold Fusion experiments, the Research Team funded by Google has kept working in the field and has produced interesting work. Besides having a preponderant role in late October ARPA-E sponsored LENR workshop, we recently became aware that a patent application in which Google Inc. was one of the initial Asignees at the moment of filing, was recently assigned to the US Department of Energy, thus marking a public interest in the results.



    The patent application ( https://patents.google.com/patent/US20210151206A1 ) is not of "cold fusion" per se, but of a device for sourcing "fusion reaction products" that claims to be able to control the rate of fusion products obtained from classic high kinetic energy light elements particles collisions with low kinetic energy light elements particles, when it happens that the low kinetic energy particles are confined and diffused through a palladium electrode immersed in an electrolyte, and that the control of the rate of the fusion reactions can be exerted by controlling the bias voltage in the electrolytic cell (this may remind our members, to some extent, to the Lattice Assisted Nuclear Fusion claims of NASA).



    The practical relevance of this invention is the acknowledgment that a lattice can play a role in enhancing classical fusion reactions, even if still requiring high energy particles involvement, and means that the basic premise of Pons and Fleischmann is recognized as having practical and research value, even enough to capture the public interest through the US Department of Energy. You can join the discussion of these interesting developments of Google's research team in the following LENR-Forum thread: Updates from Google on LENR research




    Brazilian Nuclear Energy Researchers officially join the LENR field with a strong claim:



    A team led by Dr. Luciano Ondir Freire (Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares (IPEN-CNEN/SP), Nuclear Engineering Center, São Paulo, Brazil) has published recently in the Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry the review paper "Preliminary survey on cold fusion: It’s not pathological science and may require revision of nuclear theory". This extensive review paper has thoroughly assessed the 30+ years of LENR research to conclude that it is a valid and potentially ground breaking research field in spite of the controversy, and that it may lead to revise accepted nuclear models. Dr. Luciano Ondir participated in ICCF 23 as expositor with a Poster Presentation. You can join the discussion of this important paper at the following LENR-Forum thread: Brazil Joins the party- a survey of the LENR field.



    Fan fueled frenzy of interest on controversial claims of Andrea Rossi climaxes as announced "SKLed" and "SKLep" demo date approaches:



    December 9th is the date in which the demonstration of the SKLed and SKLep products will take place, a date long awaited by fans and foes of Andrea Rossi. The event will be transmitted live 3:00 pm Timezone Europe/Stockholm . We at LENR-forum will be hosting a thread for commentary and discussion of the live event and will post in it the link to the livestream as soon as it becomes available. May this be the moment awaited for so many and so long? We will find out together. Don't forget to join the discussion of this anticipated event at LENR-Forum.



    That's all for now, don't forget to visit http://www.lenr-forum.com for much more in depth information and discussion of the LENR research and commercial development field!

  • January 2022 LENR-Forum Newsletter:


    Happy New Year to our readers and subscribers!


    2022 Starts full of hope for the LENR Community. Will this be the year that LENR becomes definitely mainstream? Perhaps it is already and we are not yet fully aware, let's find out checking the latest hot issues on our field.


    Anthropocene Institute rebrands LENR "Solid State Energy":


    The well known and influential Anthropocene Institute has fully embraced LENR as part of its palette of supported fields of technological innovation for sustainable energy. In their recent 2021 year's end message, they devote an entire section to "Solid State Energy" explaining what is and what they think of LENR, while they highlight that this field is "gaining both acceptance and research funding" and then proceeding to list all the public and private initiatives launched during 2020-2021, and the relevance of their results. They also announce their creation of the new site https://lenrdiscovery.com/ that will act as a sort of LENR public-private announcements aggregator, and will publish monthly a sort of diary (LENRaries) of the developments in the LENR field. You can read these exciting news at https://anthropoceneinstitute.…/12/2021-year-end-review/. And, as far as commitment to the LENR development goes, what can be better than becoming host and organizer of the upcoming ICCF 24 In July 2022, as the Anthropocene Institute has already announced (you can see Carl Page inviting us to the ICCF 24 in the following link https://www.iccf24.org/ ).

    News and Tidbits from current LENR companies with products in development:


    Japanese Clean Planet LLC in alliance with Japan's leader boiler maker Miura announce that they were able to apply for 17 patents during 2021 and that their biggest challenge remain in developing a control system for their "Quantum Hydrogen Energy" to allow the deployment on commercial products. Clean Planet is also hiring new employees related to their work with boilers, as we have been able to find.


    Brillouin Energy Corp has informed us directly that they have continued to advance the technical status of their Hydrogen Hot Tube (HHT) primary product design, such that they have begun to achieve their first true net positive, controlled COPs “out-of-the-wall” in the 1.3X range. Brillouin indicates that using their already perfected control system, they were able to repeat these results two dozen times. Also as a result of continuing advancements of their materials science manufacturing, they soon began to make too much heat in their HHT reactors (more than they could handle). The company said it is close to finish solving this issue now with an advanced re-design of multiple system components and manufacturing techniques in order to significantly upgrade the HHT’s capacity. In the near future the project their HHT will be able to handle several Kilowatts of controlled thermal energy output per tube steady state and ultimately up to 10KW. Upon completion of their current redesign process soon in 2022, Brillouin anticipates being able to raise its repeatable COPs above 2X out-of-the-wall for demonstration purposes, and then continue to increase the rated COP level from there. The company is in the middle of closing out its Series C Preferred Stock Round and welcomes final investment interest at this time. They can be reached through the contact page on their website.


    We also have recently, through one of our members related to the company, learnt that MTI (Mizuno Technologies Inc.) has continue to cooperate with independent parties that have been able to validate the excess heat of MTI reactors with their own equipment and calorimetry, gaining momentum for further investement and growing of the company.

    Next Hydrogen Loaded Metals conference announced:


    We have got word from the organizers that the 15th International Workshop on Hydrogen Loaded Metals will be held again at the Domus Pacis hotel, - Assisi Italy from the 25 to the 29th Sept 2022. You can read details here: https://www.lenr-forum.com/attachment/19877-bozza2-pdf/

    Huw Price on lessons Reputation trap lessons learnt from Cold fusion:


    Australian Philosopher Huw Price has been writing about "Cold Fusion" for some years now, getting involved and interviewing key players, and trying to call attention of what he considers key issues that have impeded the development of the field, while still not fully convinced it is real, but highlighting that the potential benefit is way more than worth the risk. The two aspects he identifies as holding back the field are most notably the lack of funding, and the fear of reputation trap. In his last preprint on the issue, from January 11 2022, Price delivers us his updated view while sharing with us his own personal journey of assessment of the LENR field, which you can read here: https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/2201/2201.03776.pdf.

    Transmutations, Transmutations everywhere!


    It is no news for our readers that LENR researchers have been reporting observations of elemental transmutations for the past three decades. We offer in this newsletter two recent examples.


    The first one comes from Russian researchers that claim the production of Rhenium and Tantalum in electrolysis experiments with a Tungsten electrode, and propose a theoretical mechanism for explaining how this can happen. (https://crimsonpublishers.com/amms/abstract/AMMS.000688.php)


    The second one comes from Dr. Michael Clarage's (science team member of SAFIRE Project and Aureon Energy) personal blog. He reports the formation of de novo Iron and Carbon in electrolysis experiments with Al-Mg foils and KCl electrolyte, providing full SEMs and EDX analysis, a very good read https://michaelclarage.substac…iron-in-10kv-electrolysis .

    Upcoming New Video Interview with the creators of the LEC:


    Our readers may recall our excitement with Frank Gordon's and Harper Whitehouse invention the LEC, which has been undergoing a major flurry of interest behind the scenes. We are proud to announce we have filmed and are now in the process of editing a small documentary with the key players, replicators and high level players on the research industry that will probably raise more attention. Stay Tuned for its publication during February.



    And that is for now in this edition of the LENR-forum Newsletter. Stay Tuned for exciting news on the LENR Field, and don't forget to visit us and engage in the discussion on the forum.

  • Hello to all readers and subscribers of LENR-forum.com

    This is the March 2022 Edition of our monthly Newsletter, and we have some exciting developments to share with you all.

    Highly interesting results in Bubble / Cavitation Fusion Experiments:

    Russian-American Physicist Max Fomitchev-Zamilov has published a research report in which he describes the ability to produce several orders of magnitude above background neutrons with a Cavitation device. He shared the report at his ResearchGate page, you can find all the links in the following post: BUBBLE FUSION STILL BUBBLING

    He also held a very informative Zoom meeting with Bob Greenyer of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial project where he discusses the in and outs of his experiments and reports for the first time a number of anomalous observations that are very enlightening about the nature of this phenomena (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z01586zdnM0 )

    Solid State Fusion Prize to be announced at ICCF 24:

    As if it were not enough good news that ICCF 24 will be held in Silicon Valley, organized and sponsored by the Athropocene Institute, we learn now that at ICCF 24 will hold a devoted session, on its second day (July 26 2022), to announce and discuss the Solid State Fusion prize in which participation and expectations will be discussed. Scant little is known about this prize, and we at LENR-forum are striving to get more information from our network of contacts, we will be sharing any further information we can find in the following thread: ICCF-24 Call For ABSTRACTS

    Video of the LENR-forum online LEC Symposium finally released:

    The fascinating effect that drives the Lattice Energy Converter, an invention of Frank Gordon and Harper Whitehouse, is discussed in depth by a panel of replicators and developers of this invention, in this two part presentation that is finally available to our audience. You can watch both parts and take part in the discussion in the following thread: Frank Gordon's "Lattice Energy Converter (LEC)" online Simposium video

    We are proud to announce that LENR-Forum.com has planned a series of upcoming videos of the same kind with open discussion of hot LENR-topics, we will announce and publish them in due time.

    New IEEE Spectrum Article brings "Cold Fusion" to Mainstream in a positive light (again):

    In what is becoming quickly a trend, an interesting and optimistic new article has been published at IEEE Spectrum, under the title "NASA’s New Shortcut to Fusion Power", where the recent work of NASA on the so called Lattice Confinement Fusion is discussed in relation to the more classic hot plasma approach, but classic experiments of LENR (deuterium diffusion through Pd and Electrolysis with Pd) are mentioned and discussed as being one and the same phenomena. You can read this article here: https://spectrum.ieee.org/lattice-confinement-fusion

    And that's all for now, stay tuned for further news and don't forget to visit us at LENR-Forum.com and engage in the active discussion!!!

  • April 2022 LENR-Forum Newsletter:


    Greetings to our members and readers. This month we have a lot of news to share with you about the events and developments taking place on the exciting world of LENR.

    The passing of Charles Entenmann and his wide, and mostly unknown, key role in the development of LENR.


    We have to lament the passing of Mr. Charles Entenmann the past 24th of Februry. Mr. Entenmann, unbecknownst to many, because of his own wishes to remain anonymous in this regard, as we now learn, was for decades a patron of LENR research and provided funding and support to many well known researchers in our field. The beautiful and surprising facts ladden obituary published by Infinite Energy ( https://www.infinite-energy.co…es/charles-entenmann.html ) makes justice to his great life and the invaluable contributions he made to the science of LENR. He will be sorely missed by so many.


    lenr-forum.com/attachment/20533/

    Charles Entenmann (1929-2022)


    NASA's Lattice Confinement Fusion continues to make headlines.


    This time is a column of Medium writer Will Locket on his blog Predict, who wrote the article "Has NASA Cracked Fusion Energy?" ( https://medium.com/predict/has…usion-energy-1eb79fb55178 ) With over 45 thousand subscribers, this blogger of cutting edge technological innovation has already got over 1.7 thousands positive reactions to this article and paints a positive, while cautious, picture about the possibility of the LCF approach to solve the long sought problem of fusion energy. Will Lockett perhaps fails to grasp the fact that LCF is taking an approach similar to the original concept of Fleischmann and Pons (certainly, many of his readers were quick and harsh to remind him, in the comments section), but coverage for the LCF approach is coverage for LENR, so we couldn't be happier about his positive overlook of NASA's efforts.

    ICCF 24 Early Bird Registration open from now until April 30th 2022.


    Already shaped to be a historic moment for the LENR Field, the ICCF 24, to take place at the Solid State Energy Summit in Next July, has opened registration at Early Bird rates. Different options for different kind of attendees and attendance formats are offered, starting from Free, for researchers and postdoctoral students, and USD 200 for online participants. LENR-Forum will be present at ICCF 24, we will enjoy the outstanding journalism of Ruby Carat and we hope to be able to send Alan Smith with the help of our readers, but more on that will be advised at the proper time.

    As news of Norront Fusion (from Norway) filing for bankrupcy emerge, we are pleased to learn that the efforts to commercialize the technology will be continued by a new Swedish company called Lazerah. We really don't have much details about it other than some of the former Norront Fusion investors have migrated to this new Start Up and that Leif Holmlid has a key position as stake holder. We also know they are hiring research and technical staff. As more becomes known, we will inform our readers, you can find some of what little is known on the following thread at LENR-Forum.

    Lattice Energy Converter: all papers and relevant information in one easy to go place!


    Our extremely efficient staff member Ruby Carat has compiled and sorted in one place all the information needed for getting fully up to date with the LEC and its ongoing status of development. The post is intended as a one place to go / quick reference guide for everyone interested in the science and replication of this fascinating technology.

    LENR-Forum Calendar is online now!!!


    We now offer a LENR related calendar where our readers and members can keep an eye on the schedule of upcoming relevant events on the field of LENR and other related energy fields. The Calendar can be accessed through this link: https://www.lenr-forum.com/calendar/yearly/


    Our Members are invited to submit events to add to the calendar, which will be reviewed by our staff before approva, to avoid abuse of this feature by spammers. Let's build this calendar together!!!

    Help us build LENR forum 2.0!!!


    As We have steadily been improving trough the years, We now have a stable forum platform with around 4,000 members that promotes collaboration between those working in, or just interested to learn about LENR field, once called 'cold fusion'. We are sure that we can improve what we see as an important service to a controversial but very valuable science, and that we could offer this community new and improved functionality.


    We reach out to our online community as we are looking for volunteers who could help us achieve these goals and upgrade our LENR forum offerings (web / software / newsletter etc.) and well as introduce new features, like video interviews and discussions which we have just begun to trial. We specially need people with skills on HTML and CSS. We certainly are looking for an Online Marketing Manager to join our team. Let's build a stronger online community for LENR together!!!


    And that would be all for this edition. Stay tuned for more in our next regular newsletter, and whenever a flash news requires it, in our special topic newsletters.


    Until the Next One!!!

    The LENR-Forum Staff.

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

    We do need help. David has led a concerted effort to improve our product, but we just do not have all the skills represented on the staff to take us to where we want to be, and the few volunteers helping on the side such as jox have only so much time to volunteer.

  • The LENR-Forum May 2022 Newsletter is here!


    Dear Members and Readers of LENR-Forum;


    This is our monthly newsletter to bring you the latest news and developments of the LENR world and its community.

    Why ICCF 24 is so important?


    As the beginning of this event approaches, we have seen discussion in the forum about its importance, so we think we need to highlight why we consider this event of high relevance:


    - This is the first time ever the ICCF is being hosted and organized by a major public provate partnerships player (the Anthropocene Institute) that is a complete outsider to the LENR community, and is intertwined with major players at Sillicon Valley.


    - This is the first time ever that the ICCF will be announcing the LENR Prize, details of which ares scant, but will probably involve a major cash price, for the first unequivocal LENR demonstration unit.


    - This is the first time ever that the ICCF will be held within a major event called the "Solid State Energy Summit" which is posing to become a new broader way to designate LENR.


    - The Anthropocene Insitute is openly acknowledging to be in collaboration and partnership with long time LENR Researcher Lawrence Forsley.



    (Screen Capture Caption: Snippet of the Anthropocene Institute April 27th Newsletter).


    We tend to think that all these factors, taken in consideration alltogether with past October's 2021 ARPA-E LENR Workshop and several new players entering the field, and also several new mainstream publications on LENR, are clear and potent signals that we are witnessing the long held hope of LENR becoming mainstream science, finally coming to fruition.


    Special 15% discount code for LENR-Forum Members for registration to the ICCF 24!!!


    LENR-forum members have been offered a 15% discount code for registration in any of the attending regimes (virtual or presential and for different types of attending backgrounds). Please contact Alan Smith for using the code at the moment of online registration. Remember the Early Bird Rates deadline is May 6th, Hurry!!!


    Let's Help Alan Smith get to the ICCF 24!!!


    As you know, Alan Smith is a valued member of the forum team and our most prolific poster (11,000 posts and rising), Alan is a key part of our mission to get LENR energy from out of the closet and into everyone's daily life. Over the years Alan has taken on the difficult task of building bridges between the players in Academia, Private Research, our forum and the wider public. As a net-worker and a researcher in his own right he has become a force to be reckoned with in the LENR community, better at gathering intelligence than the CIA, and with great negotiation skills and conciliatory capabilities. Alan has also freely donated materials and ideas to members and non-members alike. There's hardly a big or small name in the LENR world that hasn't heard of or met Alan in the flesh at some point.


    As the important ICCF 24 conference is approaching soon, we are reaching out to our community of members and readers to help us get Alan to this important event, his presence there will be of benefit to the forum as a whole, it increases our chance of making interesting connections and getting inside scoops during the event, the kind of things that Alan gets people to tell him just by being the charming character he is.

    At this important meeting Alan will be "in cahoots" with our beloved Ruby Carat (who will also attend the event as she is a proud California Dweller) and her videographer, so we will have a stellar team there who can bring us something of the flavour and reality - almost like being there ourselves.


    We need to raise £4500. All the money raised will be accounted for publicly, and anything left over will be used in ways that help keep our forum strong and relevant to LENR, the difficult scientific endeavour that may one day (soon, we hope) be the salvation of our poor battered planet.


    You can go now to the following GoFundMe page set up by Alan Smith and make your donations.

    We are very happy to see that many donations have already arrived, but we are still not there yet, please help us reach the goal!!! You can keep track of how the fundraiser is going in the following thread:



    Thanks in advance for your help!!!


    Most read article claims Cold Fusion is valid science and may require revision of nuclear theory.


    Just as a way to emphasize the importance that LENR is having as newly accepted mainstream science, we share with our members and subscribers the very interesting tidbit that the most downloaded article for the past 90 days in the Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry is from Brazilian Nuclear Engineer Luciano Ondir (who entered the LENR Field as presenter at the ICCF 23) and presents his conclusions that "Cold Fusion" was never pathological science, which implies that nuclear theory is up for a revision.


    The article is open acces and can be reached here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/…cle/pii/S1572665721008973


    And that's all for now, please don't forget to login and comment at LENR-forum, and please donate to Alan's fundraiser!!!


    Until the Next One!!!

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