    &"I hope you will contribute to the discussion because – in my opinion – there are a lot of uncertainties about the results of LENR experiments."

    No uncertainty for me. My experiment with NiO produced excessive heat by fusing hydrogen to produce helium. All recorded with thermocouples and a mass spectrometer.

    &"Is it not great that people want to learn more about your findings? Is it not possible for you to compile a description of your protocol? Or at least include a link in a post where we can find it?! Just saying that "the protocol exists in this forum" doesn't lead people into this specific information."

    On the upper right hand corner of the LENR Forum page is a section labeled Search All Forums, enter RAGOEL NIO and click enter. This will take you to all my posts including protocols for my reactor.

    bjogen, your interpretation of frustration in my posts is correct also rudness was never intended. With worldwide reports indicating that nanoscale hydrogen fusion has been replicated, I'm convinced that what I witnessed years ago was interpreted correctly.
    Now with this recent interest my recourse is to post this warning: With the correct reactor charge hydrogen will fuse and suddenly produce a large quantity of IR photons. If I can prevent people from injury by showing a flawour of rudness then I'll show it. Don't attempt performing my protocols as previously posted.

    &"I'm happy ogfusionist what you find good results BUT could you share it by a normal paper as PDF or PPT with pictures ?
    It will be easier to understand!? Less than 5 pages.. not as them of some physicist who live only with what they would write ...smile.."

    I've already shared the protocol for the fusion reactor, why should I waste more time as you suggest? If you don't understand that at 830 C. hydrogen gas dissociates and if flowing over a nickelous oxide reactor some protons will fuse to produce helium, then more wordage won't help.

    &"you think Superparamagnetism influences in cold fusion ?
    ferro fluid phenomenom too ?"

    No complex influences required: the reaction is simply proton fusion that results from dissociated hydrogen interacting with the reactor charge.

    Arnaud, my protocol posts from experiments done years ago were meant to put on record one method to possibly initiate hydrogen fusion. With a safety disclaimer that relates to the danger associated with this reaction.

    &"How long was the reactor with a stream of H2 below 830°C"

    The reactor was quickly brought up to 830 C to maintain the bulk oxidation state. I visualized the reaction as simply proton interaction with the (-Ni-O-Ni-) array.

    magicsound I'm worried that you may ignore my disclaimer and attempt using nickelous oxide in your reactor. Your setup appears ready for a successful fusion attempt. Please don't try the RAGOEL NiO protocol in your testing. Without a helium damping injector its very dangerous and expensive.

    magicsound, these experiments will always depend on luck as to the necessary ingredients being present in the correct nanometer alignment. When the correct catalyst is used the experiment becomes expensive and dangerous. I was lucky and only the apparatus melted. The laboratory arrangement forced me to be a safe distance from the reactor when fusion suddenly initiated. On second thought wouldn't one expect some danger when successfully initiating a stellar reaction on a tabletop?

    &"It seems that the quantity of H2 (gas) was not enough to reduce all the NiO present in the reactor: Only a small part get reduced, no change in the color of the NiO."

    The hydrogen was flowing continuously in the reactor at 830 C. The bulk of the catalyst maintained its green color. There must be a periodicity that's maintained on the catalyst surface that allows dissociated hydrogen to fuse.
    This reaction is unique for nicklelous oxide and not related to any Parkhomov or A. Rossi catalysts or experiments. The fusion initiates suddenly and is magnitudes above a simple chemical reduction process.
    Very dangerous experiment! I'm intentionally redundant in stating this because the reactor quickly becomes a molten pile although fortunately the photons are mostly IR with little out of this range.

    &"So volume of reactor, H2 pressure and NiO quantities is a must to know before going further. If @ogfusionist could light up our mind to understand his process more clearly"

    3/16" ID tube stuffed with RAGOEL NiO catalyst. Hydrogen at atmospheric pressure flowing over catalyst at 830 C. The retention of the green characteristic color of the NiO after the experiment indicates no substantial reduction during fusion.
    No lithium of any form was used in the reactor. The protocol for RAGOEL NiO is posted on this Forum.

    BTW this was done ~50 years ago before Parkhomov, Rossi, et al were on the scene. LENR was unheard of then.

    As a disclaimer, do not attempt this experiment!

    &"ogfusionist: Can I find your protocol somewhere?"

    me356, I've posted protocols on this Forum under ogfusionist. Should be able to call up on search.
    I'll repeat that the catalyst must be protected from sulfide poisoning and it's not an easy task. The NiO requires extensive milling to reach the submicron particle size required. The alumina FiberFrax requires pre hydrogen firing for purification. When all is done correctly fusion will initiate at 830 C with sudden runaway and destroy the reactor. Operator response time isn't fast enough to prevent meltdown.
    Throttling could be with helium dilution of the hydrogen previous to its dissociation temperature.
    This fiasco happened in my lab about 50 years ago when there was little interest. Now hydrogen fusion is a big issue.
    But why live dangerously by replicating hydrogen fusion in a laboratory? It's just as exciting to nitrate glycerol and far less dangerous.
    OK, yeah one is a chemical reaction and the other is who knows what.

    David, the NiO reactor is easy to replicate if protocol is followed exactly. Not expensive to build or replicate. A ball mill is critical for the particle size of catalyst necessary for a nanoscale reaction.
    No sloppiness or it won't work. Interesting that this suggests that replicators are inherently lazy. I've concluded that they rather talk than do.
    OK for this experiment, it's best to be safe rather than sorry.
    Certainly not a game and good training for youngsters if they survive the runaway reactor meltdown.
    My advice is to not attempt this fusion experiment. The results are destruction of the reactor when fusion initiates.

    &"why they do not want to share more? It is hard to believe they are not interested in it anymore."

    My hydrogen fusion reactor is not a Parkhomov replication and I've posted the protocol. Reason for loss of interest is that as long as oil burning is profitable we will continue to do so. Why persue this energy source when there is not a chance in hell that it will be presently utilized? Check oil company patents related to hydrogen fusion. They are ready and waiting to make enormous profits.

    &"Certainly not a finely engineered, machined product of 2 years of work (as per Rossi) in which he had succeeded in aligning individual atoms (ROTFWL!)."

    ROTFWL!, George get off the floor and stop laughing, you need to understand that aligning individual atoms is exactly what the fusion reactor catalyst does. Nanoscale alignment to null Coulomb repulsion is the catalyst's function.

    &"I understand your 'arguments' very well... How do you know what Munson thinks and what his role was, if you have not read the paper you refer to? How can you even have an opinion?"

    Colwyn are you sure you understand George's arguments very well? What worth would a troll's opinion be?
    Do you think arguing with a troll will further LENR progress?

    &"Have you learned that Ed Storms is quite certain that "blue Pd oxide" is simply a thin layer of what, if thicker, would simply be black Pd oxide? If I understand it correctly, he is certain it is not a nitride. I suspect there may be evidence confirming or denying the nitride contention, or that it may be easily demonstrated."

    The blue discoloration on palladium is probably a ~4000 Angstrom thick layer of oxide. I've tested palladium that for permeation studies had formed a blue surface. Spot testing with hydrogen indicated palladium oxide although thin films on platinum group metals can be deceptive using flame tests.
