    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).

    We look forward to read your opinions and debate about this important event for the development of the LENR field in the following thread at

  • 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 ( ) 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 for much more in depth information and discussion of the LENR research and commercial development field!

    Update: thread for discussion posted here.

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

  • 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 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 ).

    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:

    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:

    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. (

    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

    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 ( )

    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 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:

  • 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 (…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.

    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?" (…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.

    Lazerah: New company to develop the technology from Leif Holmlid's scientific research.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    Image Caption: Alan Smith at ICCF 22 (Asissi, Italy) (Image credit: Mykhaylo Vysotskii)

    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.

    Other donation methods can be considered to ease the ways for making your contribution, for that please contact Alan Smith directly.

    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:…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.

    The LENR-Forum September Newsletter is here!

    This month we share with our subscribers a thorough summary put together by our Star Reporter Ruby Carat, who attended and played a major role in the organization and communications of the ICCF 24. She captures both the scientific and the human atmosphere in her usual charming way.

    We also are happy to bring our subscribers the major announcement of the opening of an USD 10 million Funding Opportunity from the ARPA-E, which is already taking applications for projects, the deadline is November 15th 2022. Hurry!


    This was more than an ICCF. It was the ICCF24 x Solid State Energy Summit, with the "x" articulating the extension of a CMNS meeting into engagement with a broader sector of policy, technology and financials. ICCF is the signature conference of the research CMNS community, while the Solid State Energy Summit represents a reach-out beyond ISCMNS for partnerships that will both collaborate with and complement LENR research. Steve Katinsky, co-founder of LENRIA, discussed this in his remarks at the end of the day (which I look forward to seeing when it's posted).

    Conference host Anthropocene Institute made the leap and exposed LENR science in the best possible setting to their friends in Silicon Valley. They also reached out beyond to bring global figures in to inform CMNS researchers about what is needed to take their research to the next level. The first day of the conference was an education for all in attendance, online or in-person. There were limited science reports. In its stead were global energy analysis, risk assessment, Technological Readiness factors, and a bullet list with the rubric LENR research scientists need to satisfy in order to gain investment capital. Anthropocene's Media Relations had released a statement saying as much:

    The conference will focus on observations, results, and theory, with an eye toward satisfying increased interest in practical fusion from the investment and research communities.…-energy-summit-kicks-off/

    Former Executive Director of the IEA Nobuo Tanaka attended virtually, and reported that energy policy makers are searching for solutions beyond fossil fuels, indicating continued real interest in alternatives. But how does LENR develop into one of those alternatives? Conference attendees were treated to an advanced lesson in how investors think about "Risk Transfer Approaches" surrounding environmental, social and governance ESG factors, as presented by PhD quantitative analyst Jeffrey Bohn. And Carly Anderson was just one of the speakers who provided a required qualifying criteria for venture capital funding to develop a potential technology, and tips for lab groups on how to meet those criteria. These were the tutorials the LENR community needs to move forward to the next level.

    The investment crowd was educated, too. The conference featured several US agencies with established labs successfully pursuing LENR research dispelling negative perceptions and lifting the very real and serious research. NASA Principle Investigator and Physicist Theresa Benyo of Glenn Research Center presented on the Lattice Confinement Fusion LCF project, within an overview of the history of Glenn cold fusion research. US Navy Project Manager Oliver Barnham gave an overview and timeline of US Navy research and introduced the current replication program he's working on. [See notes on Theresa Benyo RE: ICCF24 LIVE discussion. ] Oliver Barnham [See notes Oliver Barnham here: RE: ICCF24 LIVE discussion. ]

    Later that week, Larry Forsley and former-Navy SPAWAR researcher Pam Mosier-Boss gave data on projects, as did US Army Corps of Engineers Benjamin Barrowes, whose father worked at the National Cold Fusion Institute back in the day, who presented data on the replication project he's doing. The overviews were given early, and the hard data provided later. Like the European Union and Japan, US agencies are funding Hydrogen Metal Energy openly because they can't afford not to.

    Scott Hsu, Senior Advisor and Lead Fusion Coordinator in the Office of the U/S for Science & Innovation and Program Director, ARPA-E of the U.S. Department of Energy, who does not like to hear the words "cold fusion", spoke about their new LENR funding program, tip-toein in with the vocabulary "considering issuing a new Exploratory Topic ...."

    The Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E) is considering issuing a new Exploratory Topic under Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) DE-FOA-0002784 and DE-FOA-0002785 to solicit applications for financial assistance in pursuit of hypotheses-driven approaches toward realizing diagnostic evidence of Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) that are convincing to the wider scientific community. A goal of this Exploratory Topic will be to establish clear practices to rigorously answer the question, "should this field move forward given that LENR could be a potentially transformative carbon-free energy source, or does it conclusively not show promise?"…d3-4afc-bd17-bc7a7f05fb2f. [ # RFI-0000065 ]

    The ARPA-E program is based on "recent progress in the field". The announcement includes references to the google Nature paper written by C.P. Berlinguette et. al., "Revisiting the cold case of cold fusion," Nature 570, 45 (2019) "and references therein", and the ARPA-e LENR Workshop…uclear-reactions-workshop

    This was not the only time I heard how the google Nature paper was the catalyst to thinking that we should take another look at this. The paper describing their program was a huge disappointment to the LENR community, where the lack of veteran researcher involvement was criticized. Nevertheless, the google program managers had their own idea, and ultimately concluded that there is something anomalous going on, and they continue investigation to find out what it is. Apparently, that sentiment alone was enough for other researchers outside of LENR to feel confident about approaching their supervisors with a proposal to experiment to see what people are talking about. 33-years of experimental data showing nuclear reactions are happening in a solid material, but a google paper ignites action. We know now there is a much greater interest in pursuing new energy research than we hear about. People are laying silently in-wait for the right opportunity to present itself, and then, springing up with ideas.


    If you want to unlock that potential inventiveness, there's nothing like a cash award. Carl Page announced a Prize will be administered with the intention of spurring research interest and engineering in solid state energy. But how to measure success is the current question, and it will be some months before we hear further word on that. To be determined is what type of measurement will indicate a winner? [Notes on Carl Page's update here: RE: ICCF24 LIVE discussion. ]

    Peter Diamandis zoomed in virtually for a discussion and confirmed from experience that a Prize can stimulate the technology breakthroughs needed and jumpstart development money. They would like to see $100 million dollar prize, with a Winner and Runners-Up, but raising that much is still a problem. Depending on the racing criteria, a few million to $10 million is more likely.

    Anthropocene Institute co-Founder and Director Carl Page and Chief Science Officer Frank Ling accessed their network to attract the best and the brightest, and rolled out a red carpet leading directly to the LENR lab. Curiosity, collaboration, and money is knocking, and LENR researchers need to answer. However, solid state energy has no technology; more R&D needs to happen. To show the current level of development, a "Tech Expo" was set up in the Grand Hall. Brillouin Energy had a room where they had brought one of their Hot Tube test generators, and conference co-sponsor Clean Planet had private office for their in-person group. There were tables with info and merch from NASA, nuclear advocacy groups, and our comics and t-shirts. Live demos were scheduled.

    Frank Gordon and Harper Whitehouse were able to operate the small Lattice Energy Converter LEC on a table, creating an anomalous voltage by an as yet unknown mechanism. This was a success demonstration of a growing number of devices being researched to provide LENR direct to electricity. Fabrice David, co-creator of the Fusion Diode, was attending in-person, and George Egely zoomed in virtually with a video of his device claimed to anomalously amplify electrical input by 10.

    The LEC was there in the Grand Hall operating Live during most of the four-day conference making microwatts of electricity. The hope is to scale the effect to a useful output. There were a lot of suggestions to that effect and this group generated a lot of interest. Go to for more.

    In the US, Brillouin Energy stands alone in their successful engineering efforts towards a technology. They hauled their Hot Tube along with the box of requisite measuring apparatus it's contained in, all designed by Chief Technical Officer Robert Godes and his team, from the Berkeley lab down to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. It was on wheels, but Bay area traffic and roads in need of repair made for a bumpy ride and shook the unit into a fatal state. The live demo with the Sterling Engine didn't make it through the meeting. Unfortunate. Nevertheless, the Brillouin crew touted their steadily increasing results, reports of which can be found on their website.

    Clean Planet CEO Hideki Yoshino leads the number one R&D LENR program on the planet. They have incrementally increased heat output of the Metal Hydrogen Energy generator and its cousins, as well as transmutation work, over the last decade. The word is they can make over 2 kW and are working with a Japanese company to make a water boiler by 2025. This is huge Follow their work at

    The Poster area was in that same Grand Hall, though many of the posters were configured digitally and hosted online. LENR-forum's Diadon put a poster together at Alan Smith gave away LENR-forum cards and talked at the poster. I did not make it through to speak with everybody there at the Posters and I regret that. I was there with Eli Elliott to capture video for our documentary movie, and during Poster Session, between interviews, we were at the Coldscope table, giving away books, comics, and t-shirts with art by Matt Howarth. See and

    There was so much action, I was out of my mind trying to get what I could, and it wasn't nearly enough. This mini-Science Expo was a trial run for the next one, the one ready to exhibit a usable technology. Marshall McLuhan remarked how the service environment for any new technology is always in place as a "ground", before the technology comes on the scene as a "figure". The solid state energy service environment sampled at the ICCF24 shows a ground almost assembled. If McLuhan is right, the technology can not be far behind.

    Organizing an international conference is not an easy task, especially with a mix of online, in-person presentations, and it was smooth. Anthropocene's Frank Ling can science around with the best of them, but at the meeting, he also safely managed multiple world-lines involving nuclear scientists, artists, rappers, and the tech investors that Silicon Valley is famed for, with the whole thing broadcast live to world, oh, and during a bump in a pandemic. Participants took COVID tests each morning and had to show a negative result to enter the space. I had never even taken a COVID test until I had to take these tests for the conference. Once entered, there were big Airlock air-cleaning machines, and high-end masks were available. Confident in my immunity and consistently negative test results, I chose the paper masks with the ICCF24 logo for most of the time, but use of masks fluctuated. In smaller groups, near the Airlock machines, and outside, it was easy to feel safe interacting with no mask. In a smaller room with a crowd, the masks were worn by most.

    The Lovelace Room held a smaller, second stage where I attended several lectures. Kazuaki Matsui presented about the New Hydrogen Energy NHE program in Japan which ran for five years during the 90s. He commented how they never really found anything positive in their experiments. But Melvin Miles, who attended the conference online, posted in the comments how he found clear signature excess heat in the larger cells he activated at NHE during the last few months of the program. Martin Fleischmann's analysis agreed with that, but apparently, it wasn't enough to keep the program going.


    Use of AI as a Tool for LENR Research was also in that room. I wanted to know, could artificial intelligence find the theory of LENR? Sadly, the lecture was way over my head, confirming that I haven't a clue how AI operates. However, speaker Charles Martin, who designs AI systems for a living, told us in plain simple terms that AI can only solve "basic physics" problems, nothing like the problem of LENR. At this point, if we want a theory of LENR then we need humans to do it. Nevertheless, this work informs data modeling, too, so there will likely to be some crossover for AI in the LENR modeling groups. [ Notes for Charles Martin RE: ICCF24 LIVE discussion. ]


    The ISCMNS holds an Awards Banquet at the end of each conference, but this one was held promptly on the second evening.


    This time, ISCMNS Chief Executive Officer William Collis, who also lectured on Exotic Particles, distributed the gold Minoru Toyoda Award to Edmund Storms, a 33-year CMNS veteran researcher and author. Storms had, in the last couple years, found the formula to make active material, that is, a palladium-powder mixture, pressed and treated, that will produce excess energy every time. These materials are now being tested by others, with at least one confirmation of a nuclear reaction. He signed copies of his 2014 book The Explanation of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction published by Christy Frazier, Managing Editor of Infinite Energy magazine. I also had a copy of the first edition of Cold Fusion magazine published back in 1994 with Edmund Storms on the cover. See


    Chef Martin Yan cooked the banquet food and educated the audience on how his favorite salad is made. He also chopped a whole chicken in 18 secs! Chef Yan is an ambassador of culture through food, and put the whole crowd in a great frame of mind through their stomachs.


    Not afraid of a little subversion, the art was unleashed after dinner. A conference attendee - whose name I need to know - sang a fantastic version of The Impossible Dream. Science rap artist Baba "I don't give a deuteron" Brinkman performed his latest "Cold Fusion" plus amazing feats of freestyle LENR lyric, even rhyming with "indoor gardening"! Check out his Youtube for more of his science rap.

    You Must LENR!
    Cold Fusion

    There were so many great lectures I witnessed, and lots I didn't. It will take a while to process what was reported. I've been checking the ICCF24 Youtube channel to see what I've missed.

    Now, I'm making a movie! I went to the ICCF24 to get more interviews with original scientists from 1989 and the early 90s for a documentary movie about the early controversy. Eli Elliott showed up to do the camera work. (Eli is the man responsible for all of those ICCF18 videos posted up on the ColdFusionNow Youtube channel back in 2013.) We interviewed David J. Nagel, Kazuaki Matsui, Tom Passel, Thomas Dolan, Francesco Celani, Ben Barrowes, Alan Goldwater and Robert Godes. We also spoke with a young college student from Las Vegas, Nevada who is interested in studying more about LENR and will check out Texas Tech where Robert Duncan is located. On the way back home, I stopped over the Energy Research Center with Alan Smith and interviewed Fran Tanzella on his account of the early days. We now have ten years of video interviews of scientists telling their story. We will piece together the account of those early days in the scientists' own words and lay it down for all time.

    Hey! Do not forget to check out the LENR Short Course videos They provide the basics on the tools used in this field. Usually given in person on the day before the conference, this year David J. Nagel put together the set online. Jed Rothwell and I stepped in to help Dave Nagel edit the series because the Anthropocene Institute unexpectedly lost a valuable member Richard Chan. I met Richard at the 2019 CF/LANR Colloquia at MIT hosted by Mitchell Swartz and Peter Hagelstein. Richard was capturing video with serious equipment (compared to my rinky-dink operation), but I knew we would be friends when he showed me the Cold Fusion Now! sticker on his water bottle. We worked together to get some great video interviews at that meeting. Then, he got up and blew my mind delivering a lecture containing both heavy science and law describing his work at the US Patent and Trademark Office, telling us how they operate, in particular, within the nuclear energy and new LENR-designations. THANK YOU Richard and lots of Love to You, for making the world a better place.

    The ICCF24 x Solid State Energy Summit was held at the Computer History Museum. Here we are only 4 decades into the computer revolution, and there's already a museum! And the next transformational technology was showcased in that historic wrapper. It was remarked that 33-years isn't really that long a time to have a breakthrough development. Florian Metzler presented the analogy of the transistor, and how the anomalous behavior took decades to understand, but still, a technology was developed in spite of the lack of understanding.

    Going from a science to a technology will be a bumpy ride, and there could be no better first step than what Carl Page and the Anthropocene team provided to the Solid State Energy researchers at the Summit. As a pioneer of Internet applications, he was there when the dot com bubble began, and he was there when it burst. Emerging with his soul still in tact, he's committed the Anthropocene Institute and its resources to solving the world's biggest problem. To do it, Carl Page and his team brought a world of talent and resources to the front door of the CMNS science research community and is hoping "everyone gets to know each other and we can build the supply chain we need to get research done, get socialized in the right places. We have to work on how papers get published. This is an opportunity to create an industry here."

    The next ICCF25 is scheduled for September 2023 and will be hosted by Konrad Czerski and the team in Stettin, Poland. Surely the goodest news will be upon us, and we will celebrate Breakthrough 2023.

    Til then, you got to enjoy Eli Elliott's phone mash-up

    WATT WATCH Assembling the latest heat as I get to watch the presentation videos:

    Clean Planet is leading the globe in LENR R&D and at ICCF24 presented their strategy for both developing a technology and nailing down the science of the reaction itself.

    Hideki Yoshino built the group in the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster and seemingly has marshaled all of Japan to support Solid State Energy, a.k.a. Quantum Hydrogen Energy, a.k.a. Metal Hydrogen Energy, a.k.a. LENR.

    No longer is it hit-or-miss to just get a reaction. Excess thermal power in the range of 200-300 Watts has been reported by Clean Planet and Tohoku scientists in the past, but now, researchers are now regularly making the reaction happen at will, testing parameters during repeated runs, and finding patterns on the similar outcomes.

    For instance, Yasuhiro Iwamura is regularly generating 5 Watts excess heat and testing how jiggling the heater causes excess heat bursts. See

    Yasuhiro Iwamura's ICCF 24 Presentation

    Takehiko Itoh generated a baseline of 2-3 Watts and prompted controlled heat bursts of 1 Watt to test test the quantity and quality of radiation. See

    Takehiko Itoh's ICCF 24 Presentation

    Jirohta Kasagi has shown that the same Ni-Cu nano-films will generate similar heat whether using H or D. See

    Jirohta Kasagi's ICCF 24 Presentation.

    Masahiko Hasegawa of Technova has generated 17 Watts long term, and is testing parameters such as the metal/hydrogen ratio and temperature effects on excess power. See

    Masahiko Hasegawa's ICCF 24 Presentation.

    But the new level of widespread low watt excess power reproducibility is not limited to Clean Planet or Technova, but appears in multiple labs. Si Chen reported 1 Watt with a bump to 2 Watts. See

    Si Chen's ICCF 24 Presentation.

    Jean Paul Biberian showed results ranging from a few watts to tens of Watts. See

    One of Jean Paul Biberian´s ICCF Presentations.

    It will take some time to sift through all of these presentations, but another pattern emerging seems to be adding elements like CaO and oxidization to create dislocations and cracks which is claimed to initiate and enhance the reaction.

    Clean Planet reported a 1kW proto-type commercial boiler design has been in testing since May 2021. Also, a heating unit has been running continuously since May 2021 with no hydrogen fuel added since the initial saturation. They plan a commercial product by the year 2025. See

    Clean Planet - Masami Hayashi's ICCF 24 Presentation.

    Need another analogy for a technology developing before full-understanding of the mechanism behind it is achieved? Look no further than AI.

    Charles Martin's ICCF 24 Presentation.

    Charles Martin lays out how "no one understands how AI works", but they are continuing to develop applications for its use!

    ARPA-E Launches USD 10 Million Funding Opportunity for LENR Projects!!!
    This Funding Opportunity can be said to be a direct consequence of the success of the ICCF 24 to attract the attention of the Scientific world and the public at large. The press release published on September 12th is the following (…-study-low-energy-nuclear )

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced up to $10 million in funding to establish clear practices to determine whether low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) could be the basis for a potentially transformative carbon-free energy source. The funding is part of the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) LENR Exploratory Topic, which aims to break the stalemate of research in this space.

    “ARPA-E is all about risk and exploring where others cannot go, which is why we’ve set out with this LENR Exploratory Topic to conclusively answer the question ‘should this field move forward, or does it not show promise?’” said ARPA-E Acting Director and Deputy Director for Technology Dr. Jenny Gerbi. “We look forward to seeing the intrepid teams that come forward to approach this field of study with new perspectives and state-of-the-art scientific and technical capabilities.”

    LENR Exploratory Topic awardees will pursue hypotheses-driven approaches toward producing publishable evidence of LENR in top-tier scientific journals by testing/confirming specific hypotheses (rather than focusing only on replication), identifying and verifying control of experimental variables and triggers, supporting more comprehensive diagnostics and analysis, and improving access to broader expertise and capabilities on research teams.

    You can access more information on ARPA-E eXCHANGE.

    We at LENR-Forum consider that the ICCF 24 signals the long awaited coming of age of LENR and its final acceptance as mainstream science by the scientific and engineering community.

    And that's all for now, hope to see you at
