    Mats Lewan:

    "Altogether, there are increasingly strong indications

    that the LENR effect is real and also that energy products

    might arrive in the market earlier than many have expected.

    And since the implications of such a compact, abundant,

    clean and flexible carbon-free energy source will be huge,

    we think that it’s important to hold the symposium to increase

    the understanding and prepare for a New Energy World.

    There are two methods to ignite the flame in a cigarette lighter.

    One of them utilizes a piezoelectric high voltage generator that makes a spark in the fuel-air mixture to be ignited.

    A spark is nothing but a plasma like in the Rossi QuackX.

    Perhaps you should look for nuclear radiation from piezoelectric cigarette lighters being lit?

    You could win the IG Nobel Price!

    Guys, let's be real.

    Rossi COP > 1 is not.

    Any E-Cat anytime anywhere.

    Plasmas are ubiquitous. Temperatures in most plasmas are thousands of degrees C.

    Plasmas with temperatures of millions of degrees C can be found in fusion reactors.

    That's what it takes to get nuclear reactions.

    And when you do, take care not to be fried by the radiation.

    It is an obvious fact (as mentioned above) that Fabiani flips a switch in the control box at time 2:31:08 before the 800 ohm test.

    This alone invalidates the whole demo and is a strong indication of foul play.

    There is also a gaping hole in the logic that prevents measuring the voltage over the reactor.

    The given reason for this is that such a measurement could reveal sensitive information about the operation of the gadget.

    At the same time Rossi has told us over and over again that the reactor essentially is an electric short with zero resistance.

    To me this indicates that the secret that must not be revealed is that the voltage is anything but zero.


    Axil's ramblings are just a hodgepodge of clips from various sites on the internet, always without reference.

    This is easy to verify by anyone who cares to do so. His posts are no more interesting to read than is the phone book.

    The basic education needed to produce them would be how to read, copy and paste, I guess.

    Hello, long time no seen!

    Decided to look at a random video recording:

    At time 0:16 Bob says: "So, some strong fields in here".

    And what does the display say? About 35 microteslas.

    Well that is pretty much a normal value for the earth magnetic field.

    The rest of the video does not make any more sense and I think it is a good representation of LENR (re)search in general. Sorry for having to say that, guys. Please feel free to ban me again for doing so. :)

    Meet Amy, the electron

    This sounds revolutionary.

    But in spite of the detailed illustrations and explanations I must confess that I do not entirely understand how it works.

    Axil, could you please help me out here?

    Alan and Eric,

    Thanks for your welcoming words!

    One day almost a year ago when I tried to visit LENR Forum. like a flash from a clear sky, I was banned. Nobody seems to know how this came about. Maybe I was hacked by the Russians because I was telling too many inconvenient truths. They seem to have a propensity for alternative facts.

    Not only did the Russians ban me, they also blocked my access to LENR Forum, perhaps by feeding some kind of poisonous cookie to my computer. The blockade was easily circumvented by preventing LENR Forum to access my computer and from time to time I checked in to see that I did not miss anything interesting.

    But the other day, after close to a full year, Alan sent me a kind mail telling me that I was welcome back and here I am, hello!

    BTW, this is what you said, Longview:


    BTW: A common microwave oven can and does readily make free protons from hydrogen gas. Not seen with induction heaters, that I know of.

    This is quite different from your last statement:

    "The most difficult items to source will probably be the quartz glass tube and the capillary tubing. First, find an old 'working' microwave oven. This must be the older type with a big, heavy MOT (microwave oven transformer) not the newer 'inverter' type. (I'm working on a method utilizing the inverter type, and I'll post details later, but it is much more complicated) Remove the MOT, MOC (microwave oven capacitor), HV diode and magnetron. Take care not to damage the gasket seal around the waveguide on the magnetron. Discard the MOC, but replace it with one about a 50th of the capacitance. The voltage rating must be the same or better than the original. Using a smaller capacitor reduces the power available to the magnetron (reduces the current, to be precise, and it is this that controls the magnetron output. Fig.3 in the paper linked to here: this). This achieves three things, 1.It allows you to run the magnetron in CW mode (constant waveform), rather than the intermittent mode it runs in in the oven. 2.It reduces the power to ~20 Watts, which is plenty for this purpose. 3.It makes it much, much safer. Connect these items together as they were connected originally, but using the smaller capacitor. (details of these 'doubler' circuits are plentiful, use google) Next, you need some quartz glass tubing, maybe 1/2" diameter, but the size isn't critical. It must be quartz glass though, pyrex (borosilicate) or other types will absorb too much of the microwave energy."

    Another BTW, there are certain types of contests that old men should abstain from taking part in.

    How do you make free protons with a microwave oven?

    The microwave oven photons have an energy of around 10-5 eV each.
    Dissociation of one H2 molecule requires 4.25 eV.
    Ionization of on H atom requires 13.6 eV.

    How do you synchronize 1360000 photons to ionize one hydrogen atom?

    I agree (for once) with axil that IH is a bad investment. But not for not hiring the wrong people. They themselves are the wrong people. They are faith driven, hoping that pie will fall from the sky if you are a good guy.

    Instead of blindly investing millions of dollars in LENR they should have invested half an hour in web research to learn that LENR is a non-existent technology with no hope of becoming reality.

    Impossible Heat be thy name.

    Radioactive nuclids are already unstable and yet it is virtually impossible to change their disintegration rate using chemical means.
    Yet there are those who believe that by use of what essentially amounts to chemical means it is possible to transmute stable nuclids.
    But this is not particularly surprising, they are not many and there are a lot of very different beliefs, one for every taste.

    PrettyFace also makes interesting things with parenthesises, exclamation and question marks.

    Like Rossi in those answers on his blog:

    Alen Kauzlaric:
    I don’t think I will have the time to write a book, but two nice books have been written that I can cite:
    “An Impossible Invention”, Mats Lewan ( Stockolm, 2015 2nd edition)
    “The New Fire”, Vessela Nikolova ( Milan, Italy, 2nd edition )
    Both available in English and Italian language.
    You can contact the authors for further information ( Google “Mats Lewan an impossible invention” and “Vessela Nikolova the new fire” ).
    Thank you anyway for your kind words.
    Warm Regards,

    “Jag bara undrar?”:
    About F8: maybe you are right !
    Jag bara undrar ?
    Warm Regards,

    But maybe it is just an Italian thing, just like the similar bad grammar that they share.

    Yes randombit0, there definitely is a Rossian ring to your writings even though you admittedly are much prettier than he is.


    I think that we should really limit our self to discuss Scientific and Technical topics. I have found too many incorrect or even completely wrong argumentation here especially in the skeptical authors. The real worse thing seems that some of them don't do that by error but by purpose and interest.Others are skeptical followers not informed about the topic and write in favor of the front they think more safe just copying the same erroneous argumentation of the first. There is also a huge number of personal attacks, that I found quite unprofessional and disgusting.

    (From another thread as it happened.)

    robert bryant,

    You misquoted me:


    HG Branzell wrote "I think you'll be happy with that"

    I wrote:
    "I think you will have to be satisfied with that."

    Meaning: this is what you must accept if you want nuclear reactions.
    (Or, of course, hot fusion. Still decades or an eternity away.)

    Actually, right under your noses there is a kind of cold fusion that works very well.

    A free neutron can be regarded as the nucleus of an atom with atomic number zero. The name neutronium being taken let us call it zeronium. Zeronium is unstable with a half life of around 15 minutes.

    Being neutral zeronium is not bothered by the Coulomb barrier and therefore effortlessly can fuse with e. g. an atom of uranium 235. The resulting nuclid is unstable and quickly disintegrates into other nuclids including more zeronium thereby enabling a chain reaction. This process produces lots of useful energy with very high COP.

    Worldwide we have 442 generalized cold fusion reactors that together produce 65 GW of electric power.

    I think you will have to be satisfied with that.

    Off-topic message: Public demonstration of something that works!

    First stage landing attempt on barge is predicted to fail!

    15 minutes to go!

    BTW, you didn't miss the last landing of the first stage? It was spectacular:

    It landed spot on. The crowd is cheering!
