    The physical properties of H2 ad D2, including diffusion, are very different. so it is not at all surprising that ATER and hence CCS should be very different between H2 and D2.

    For ATER there may be merit in this explanation.

    I guess D2 being heavier would diffuse a bit slower than H2 in palladium.

    This could explain why with deuterium you might get much lesser hypothetical ATER than with H2 because by common sense there would be less

    deuterium to combine.. but I guess it really does need experimentation, since its only a theory.

    Its unfortunate that Kirkshanahan had no access to any electrochemical apparatus since2005

    in the Savannah River DOE test his theory out since 2005.

    His paper talked about Szpak codeposition electrodes

    but perhaps ATER effect could also be seen with the simpler Fleischmann electrodes.

    I will reread the 2005 paper to check this.

    For CCS on the other hand whether or not H2 or D2 are present does not seem to be a factor.

    that's from my reading of the 2002 paper.

    Interesting stuff.. the things electrochemists must know is amazing.

    Glad to do this. If you read the entire sequence of Shanahan / Shanahan critics papers you will see

    Thanks so much for that effort.

    Unfortunately you have not shown me as I requested how

    "CCS errors from this cell of an ATER type would follow from the special active environment on

    the electrodes created from the D electrolysis that allows ATER"

    I have read both the 2002=CCS paper and the 2005 paper= ATER paper by Kirkshanahan in Acta Thermochimica

    My reading of these shows no support for this statement that you have written

    CCS appears to be independent of ATER and of the speciai active environment , from my reading.

    Perhaps this statement is a THHuxleynew variant of the Kirkshanahan theories?

    Or perhaps you can show me from these two peer-reviewed papers where I have overlooked some vital details.…prepared_by_co-deposition…_calorimetry_demonstrated

    If you cannot access these papers I can always post the guts of them on this forum.

    Axil said "At 2700C the nature of the electrical resistance of the structure of the reactor core could be completely reversed"

    by which he means that the metal container could have a higher resistance than the initially less conductive core.

    Although Axil's graph indicates alumina increasing its conductivity ( decreasing its resistivity -the inverse of conductivity)

    by a factor of 100000000000 as temperature is increased to 2700 C

    the alumina still has a much higher resistivity than metals at this temperature

    by a factor of over 10000000.

    Maintenance of high voltages inside a less conductive alumina -like ore would be unlikely, if the core contacted a more conductive metal container

    Axil said "The concentration of light without loss in a dark mode is exactly what a polariton is."

    I liked the Gif animation and it does have a certain AURA about it.

    Definitely straying from this AURA thread but the Gif did prompt me to adapt another picture. See below.

    This picture conflates two Korean studies, 2011/ 2016.

    The 2016 study eliminates the 2011 noble gases and incorporates SPPs/gold

    to produce an XUV(25-62nm) output from Near Infrared (800nm) input.

    "Here a metal-sapphire nanostructure is devised to provide a solid tip as the high-harmonic generation

    (HHG) emitter, replacing commonly used gaseous atoms.

    The fabricated solid tip is made of monocrystalline sapphire surrounded by a gold thin-film layer

    ,and intended to produce EUV harmonics by the inter- and intra-band oscillations of electrons driven by the incident laser.

    The metal-sapphire nanostructure enhances the incident laser field by means of surface plasmon polaritons(SPPs),

    triggering HHG directly from moderate femtosecond pulses of 0.1TW/cm2 intensities." quoted from the 2016 Abstract.

    Do the nanostructures inside LENR fuels provide this kind of frequency enhancement (NIR to XUV, a factor of up to 30 times)?

    Axil said "You can reveal it"

    Randy Mills in reply to a query about his molten silver level control in the Suncell said he will reveal it sometime.

    Query: "Are you using a magnetic flow meter to control the levels of molten silver? As the reservoir fills up one expects the flow of the molten silver to increase. In that case the electromagnetic pump of that reservoir should pump a bit harder in order to get more molten silver in the other reservoir. Vice versa, reduced flow would mean that side should pump a little less."Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 8:43 AM

    Answer:"The flow meters are big, inaccurate, insensitive, killed by electrical noise, won’t work at these temperatures. I’ll reveal how it works eventually."
