    That article certainly contains a lot of LENR paper quotes! Thanks for finding this. Interesting indeed. Perhaps even worth a read from a LEC perspective.

    They did excellent work. Unfortunately, "heretic" for others work.

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

  • "Furthermore, we find that the plasma treatment both alters the surface structure of the Pd nanoparticles at the atomic level and leads to surface contamination by so-called H2 plasma swift chemical sputtering of Al, Si and F species present in the plasma chamber, which in combination significantly reduce hydrogen sorption rates and increase apparent activation energies, as revealed by plasmonic hydrogen sorption kinetic measurements."

    I can't seem to find the above quote in the attached paper. Has the right paper been attached? Cheers.

  • Very interesting article of researchers from FRY and Max Planck Institute and very interesting article of Kovacs, Zapatelin & Baranov. Is it possible to explains their results without the need of a new particle?

  • METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR USING QUANTUM INCOMPRESSIBLE FLUID TO ACHIEVE FUSION FROM CAVITATION


    STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH

    This invention was made with government support under Grant Number HQ0034-20-1-0034, awarded by U.S. Department of Defense, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The government has certain rights in the invention.


    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

    Despite the enormous interest in reaching controlled thermonuclear fusion as a source of 10 limitless energy, there exists no laboratory scale thermal fusion device. Even for efficiencies Q«1 a single laboratory scale thermal fusion instrument would be transformational. Such a device would become an experimental test bed for a spectrum of innovative ideas aimed at improving Q and understanding this process under wide ranging conditions.


    BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

    Disclosed herein is a system for generating neutrons with thermal fusion, composition for use in the same, and method of using the same. The system comprises a crucible, the crucible having a quantum incompressible fluid and a gas bubble therein, a piston having an end submerged within the quantum incompressible fluid, and a controller coupled to the piston configured to drive the piston to generate an acoustic resonance in the quantum incompressible fluid.

  • Atmospheric-pressure ionization: New approaches and applications for plasmas in contact with liquids


    Historically, gas discharges have been difficult to stabilize at atmospheric pressure, and this has confined them to operation at low pressure under vacuum conditions. However, recent advances in plasma technology have enabled stable high pressure gas discharges up to and even exceeding atmospheric pressure. One significant advantage of operating at atmospheric pressure is that the plasma can be brought into contact with non-conventional substrates, especially soft materials such as plastics, biological tissue, and aqueous solutions. This last example is of prime interest as plasma/liquid interactions have a number of important implications in applications ranging from water purification to plasma medicine. In this paper, recent work studying the impact of electrons in the plasma inducing reactions in aqueous solutions is discussed. These studies include measurements of the bulk solution as the electrons induce long-lived species as well as interfacial measurements directly at the plasma/liquid interface to probe the behaviour of electrons traversing from the plasma into the liquid.

  • This is the story of how a publisher and a citation index turned the science communication system into a highly profitable global industry. Over the course of seventy years, academic journal articles have become commodities, and their meta-data a further source of revenue. It begins in Washington at the end of a second World War, when the US Government agrees a massive increase in funding for research, after Vannevar Bush champions basic research as the ‘pacemaker of technological progress’. The resulting post-war growth in scientific publishing creates opportunities for information scientists and publishers alike. During the 1950s, two men – Robert Maxwell and Eugene Garfield – begin to experiment with their blueprint for the research economy. Maxwell created an ‘international’ publisher – Pergamon Press – charming the editors of elite, not-for-profit society journals into signing commercial contracts. Garfield invented the science citation index to help librarians manage this growing flow of knowledge. Over time, the index gradually became commercially viable as universities and publishers used it to measure the ‘impact’ of their researchers and journals.


    Sixty years later, the global science system has become a citation economy, with academic credibility mediated by the currency produced by the two dominant commercial citation indexes: Elsevier’s Scopus and Clarivate’s Web of Science. The reach of these citation indexes and their data analytics is amplified by digitisation, computing power and financial investment. Scholarly reputation is now increasingly measured by journal rankings, ‘impact factors’ and ‘h-indexes’. Non-Anglophone journals are disproportionately excluded from these indexes, reinforcing the stratification of academic credibility geographies and endangering long established knowledge ecosystems. Researchers in the majority world are left marginalised and have no choice but to go ever faster, resorting to research productivism to keep up. The result is an integrity-technology ‘arms race’. Responding to media stories about a crisis of scientific fraud, publishers and indexes turn to AI tools to deal with what is seen as an epidemic of academic ‘gaming’ and manipulation.


    Does the unfettered growth in publishing ‘outputs’, moral panics over research integrity and widening global divides signal a science system in crisis? And is the ‘Open Science’ vision under threat, as the ‘author-pays’ publishing business model becomes dominant? With the scientific commons now largely reliant on citations as its currency, the future of science communication is far from certain.

    This is an example of A-Symmetrical capacitance and is important to increase current density of the active lattice site from my observations. Wave guide properties and MHD aspects in the denser ionic medium should be strongly considered. This is a many body problem like expressed in the Widom-Larson theory, and I feel like they did a good job simplify the complexity of hydrogen-neutron interaction that isn't very much different from other theories in dense hydrogen fusions, though it may not be perfect.
