    an interesting article about apparent radioactive decay at unidentfied frequency, with nanoparticle under laser irradiation...…rid=16648&option_lang=rus…f9ac4a014ec66/qe16648.pdf

    Translated in English:

    I cannot judge the content, even less read it in Russian, but maybe someone can raise good and bad points.

    It looks like some experiments (Japan with nanosilver, relation with Dennis Letts dual laser, Why not with Vysotskii)

    It reminds me of an effect I sometimes see when the burner on my gas stove is not quite adjusted properly. The flame goes into quick (and noisy) oscillations. Changing the flow of gas either up or down eliminates the oscillations and once eliminated the flow can be adjusted back to the previous setting without reappearance of the oscillations.

    I think this oscillation may be interesting to analyze

    It reminds me the work of Kozima,

    and this paper presented at JCF20

    Will it be fruitful?

    if confronted with the choice of wearing a mask or not, better to wear it.

    Some articles explain best is to wash your hands with hydroalcoolic fluid or soap...

    Mask may be good for any similar disease, like flu, to protect others.... it seems socially promoted and accepted in Asia... not in France...

    Flu is dangerous, and as asthmatic, my doctor explained me, that it may not kill me normally, unless it does kill me... 17 dead in France already. Thousands every year.

    the HIV similarities are being greatly downplayed in the mainstream, but is hard to think this is just a coincidence (it would require two coincidental coincidences).

    The similarities are related to an antigen used to enter cells...

    Let us says that a bank robber and a CIA spy may share the same key because they open the same doors.

    Was I right in feeling enthusiastic about JCF20 ?

    The abstract don't show much results, but the approaches looks very good for me ?

    as Ahlfors cites, observing the produced light is among great ideas...

    The analysis of the LENR instabilities by Nissan team looks strange I imagine, for me it is great too, like the work of Kozima, because it may give hint not on details, but on the mathematical nature of the equations of the phenomenon...

    Trying to replicate LENR should be great, but it seems to have produced no recognition...

    My feeling is that today people don't believe you if you don't have a theory, and instruments, observations , is what can give us hint on the theory...

    The work by Holmlid, the study of Brillouin electrodes by THz spectroscopy (Anis Rahman&al), are also great directions...

    Am I rational in feeling so?

    Here is a google translation:

    Not very clear but it may raise interest to obtain a better translation or read the original abstract or paper...

    Chinese Abstract of the 20th Cold Fusion (LENR) Society Conference

    The summary of the 20th Japan CF-Research Society was summarized by engineer Zhang Hang from Xi'an Qiuran Lab. Thanks to engineer Zhang Hang.

    The 20th Cold Fusion Conference in Japan was held in Fukuoka, Japan on December 13-14, 2019. The conference received 15 papers.

    1.Superheating of nano-multilayer metal in hydrogen or mixed gas

    Clean Planet Company, Murakami Murakami uses copper-nickel-zirconium alloy and palladium-nickel-zirconium multilayer composites. At 200-300 degrees, it is filled with 230 Pa of deuterium or hydrogen, absorbs hydrogen, evacuates, and warms to 500-900 degrees Generates 1.1MJ superheat

    2. Analysis of the phenomenon of abnormal exothermic elements

    At Clean Planet, Masahiro Saito used a variety of scientific analysis methods to study the reactants. Ion sputtering multiple layers of metal to a nickel-based surface in argon, absorbing hydrogen at 500-900 degrees, and scanning electron microscopy SEM and dispersion X-ray spectrometer. , Transmission electron microscope TEM, TOF-SIMS.

    3.Experimental study of low-energy photon measurement of nano-metal composites under abnormal exothermic conditions in hydrogen

Analyze from X-ray to infrared spectrum.

    4 , the interaction of nano-metals in hydrogen and deuterium enhances superheating

    Professor Emeritus of Osaka University Takahashi Palladium-nickel and copper-nickel alloy powders are subjected to secondary calcination, and there is superheating that lasts for several weeks. After mixing three kinds of samples, they are calcined and 80-120 watts of superheat occur

    5 , Ni-Zr alloy heating and vibration mode in hydrogen

    6. Startup of a metal crystal constrained nuclear fusion reactor

    Wushan Power Co., Ltd.'s Mushan and heavy water electrolysis produce superheat. Lithium VI is produced in the palladium electrode. The author put the palladium and lithium six into a container. The container was placed with an alpha ray source and filled with deuterium. Rays and neutrons are detected

    7. After repeated electrolysis of palladium rod electrode in glycerol phosphate, the hydrogen electrode is vacant.

    10.Differential scanning calorimetry verification of abnormal heat of palladium-nickel-zirconium alloy in hydrogen flow

    Kyushu University Yukiko Sato

    In this paper, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is used to study the abnormal heat generation of a small amount of palladium-nickel-zirconium alloy (PNZ) under different conditions in order to clarify its abnormal heat generation.

    This heat generation was observed above 250 ° C, and the maximum heat flux was obtained near 400 ° C, while the hydrogen absorption was observed at 250 ° C. Although there was a maximum exotherm at 400 ° C, it was reduced by program temperature rise (TPR Method) Hydrogen desorption of PNZ was observed at 400 ° C. These results clearly show that the heat generated by PNZ in hydrogen is not caused by hydrogen absorption. Next, we studied the phase transition of PNZ using powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), because metal alloys can undergo phase transitions at high temperatures and usually generate heat. The results show that PNZ does not undergo a phase change in hydrogen and inert gases below 450 ° C. Therefore, it is clarified that the continuous heating of PNZ in hydrogen above 250 ° C is not caused by the heat of hydrogen absorption and phase change.

    11 Calibration of Sendai mass flow calorimeter and thermal measurement of recovered samples

    Tohoku University Takeno Masahiko

    A mass flow calorimeter [1] developed by Kobe University Technova enables accurate heat flow measurement at a temperature of about 300 ° C in a composite metal nanoparticle hydrogen (deuterium) gas system using an oil coolant. In the NEDO project, we have made basically the same calorimeter, conducted many experiments using the same sample as Kobe Technova, and proved the reproducibility of the phenomenon of abnormal waste heat generation.

    We have now investigated further improved thermal measurements to find X-ray radiation and reactive residual gases associated with excess heat generation. The following actions have been performed. (1) Calibrate the calorimeter by adding / changing measurement parameters without changing the current state, and (2) Calibrate the calorimeter by directly receiving heat radiation from the reaction chamber and the measured amount to date .

    12, Desorption of deuterium on surface-coated palladium foil with fine structure interface

    Iwate University Endo

    Deuterium desorption experiments were performed on samples prepared by depositing different metal films on palladium foils, and the temperature and deuterium diffusion behavior of the samples were studied. For Pd-Ni or Pd-Ni-Zr samples with fine interfaces, we observed a special temperature change [3, 4]. The results indicate that the characteristic diffusion of deuterium may be caused by specific conditions.

    Although no significant excess heat was observed in the experiments, we can systematically study the deuterium diffusion behavior of different types of samples to find the trigger conditions that induce excess heat.

    13. Development of a small cavity reaction system for basic experiments on abnormal thermal effects

    Waseda University

    In this work, we developed a small chamber reaction system and performed basic experiments to verify the occurrence of anomalous thermal effects.


    14.Laser irradiation D-load Pd

    Kyoto University

    The experimental device is a gas-phase clustering reactor system made of stainless steel, including a deuterium loading chamber, an electron beam deposition chamber, and a reaction analysis chamber. The facility is equipped with a high-resolution compact amu quadrupole mass spectrometer, two gas-proportioned neutron detectors, a Geiger Muller detector for alpha, beta, and gamma rays, and two liquid scintillators. In this work, we installed a variety of lasers in the gas phase D-Pd reaction system to irradiate Pd samples as an energy stimulation support, potentially enhancing the local field of the plasma. The lasers are 405nm and 594nm continuous wave semiconductor lasers, respectively, with powers of 50 and 30mw, and the peak power of 1064nm pulsed YAG lasers is 10mw.

    The preliminary result is that we simultaneously observed a sudden overshoot of the temperature and a neutron signal. It is worth noting that we observed a large number of clear signals generated by 4He from the Pd sample by in situ mass spectrometry, that is, the shoulder on the D2 peak and a gas species with a mass of 3. We have also observed a sudden outbreak of these gaseous species from palladium samples. Our results may indicate that there is some abnormal nuclear-related response in the D-Pd system. The conference will detail experimental conditions and further results.

    15. Abnormal heat of new binary metal system under hydrogen flow (2 )

    Kyushu University

    In the experiment, two commercially available metal powders were physically mixed, and then DSC was set. In differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), a mixed sample is preheated in a helium stream to a temperature above the melting point of one of the mixed metals and cooled to room temperature. During the pretreatment process, some metal alloys were formed in the sample. For the measurement, the sample was heated to a predetermined temperature (300 to 800 ° C) at a temperature of 5 ° C / min, and kept at that temperature for a constant 2 hours, during which the thermal behavior of the sample was measured by DSC. The mixed sample is measured in hydrogen and helium. The difference in heat flow between the two is considered to be exothermic / endothermic by hydrogen.

    It was found that at 500-800 ℃, some binary metal systems generated abnormal heat for the first time. The exothermic heat flux of the samples of the Al-Ni binary system was greater than 300 mw / g, which was the same as that of the Pd-Ni-Zr samples with the same DSC device. Compared with 20mw / g, the exothermic heat flow is much larger. Similarly, the binary systems of Al-Ti (40 mW / g at 700 ° C) and Al-C a (90 mW / g at 400 ° C) also exhibit large abnormal heat at high temperatures. Repeated evaluation of these samples showed that the abnormal fever was highly reproducible.

    The above is the outline of fifteen papers.

    Professor Mizuno Tadohiko did not participate in the research work of the four companies, Clean Planet, Kobe Technology Rising Star Company, Nissan Motor Company, Osan Electric Power Company, eight universities participated in the research work, Tohoku University, Osaka University, Kobe University, Kyushu University, University of Tokyo, Iwate University, Waseda University, Kyoto University Research on Cold Fusion in Japan There are many companies and universities involved in the research. The team is constantly growing and should be the world leader.

    Of the fifteen papers, thirteen are experimental papers and two are theoretical papers. Of the thirteen experimental papers, nine are studies on excess heat, two are on nuclear products, and two are on fuel morphology. The research direction focuses on experimental research and is very pragmatic

    Cold fusion world

    February 1, 2020

    the COP of 2, and what we imagine of the nature of the process, make it clear COP can be huge, once we understand, and thus can control and predict.

    Brillouin have better control, but still not enough... Anyway it is better than Mizuno. But Mizuno if replicated, like Brillouin, can be the labrat of real understanding. The ex-NEDO colaboration is great too.

    I've been enthusiastic about Brillouin work with Anice Rahman&al on THz spectroscopy.

    I've been enthusiastic on JCF papers because there were experiments around the ex-NEDO experiments, with microscopy, dynamic analysis...

    Today we don't need something that produce energy for real application (maybe one goal could be running a toy for a month to convince engineers) but a good labrat to be studied with best microscopes, best spectrometers, best analysis, best detectors, and to afterward, try with best nanostructured material inspired by what was observed...

    If you just have heat, but huge COP, best plan may be to plug it on a Stirling engine, and let it run for month on the bench of an industry lab.

    If you have a very simple and predictable, unquestionable COP of 1.1, best is to find a way to put it under the best microscopes, spectrometers, in the best university labs.

    Anyway all is slow, I know many people work hard to make the experiment reliable, the measurement unquestionable, and trigger the reaction. Brillouin is there. It is great.

    But success is far away, I've understood now. Anyway, it will work... COP1.1, at high sigma, have proven it.

    Few points are complex for me.

    First, can someone explain to me how they are sure it is Kaon... (or Muons as before)... It must be physicist art with the gamma spectrometer...

    Second is the link with LENR as seen is low energy experiments (electrolysis, permeation...)...

    It seems great, but I understand betters thermodynamics and calorimetry than QM and gamma spectrometry.?(

    Selamat Hari Natal,

    Merry Christmas,

    Joyeux Noel,

    a bit late, but Happy Hanuka,

    and before the end of the year, not to forget joyeux Aïd El Kebir, Selamat Idul Fitri,

    And to celebrate the period when sun seems to fight back against darkness (some call that Winter solstice)

    Optimism is not waiting for good things to happen, but hopeful courage to fight for Good to happen.

    NB: LENR will only work after much of sharing, data, tricks, observations, instruments, samples, friendships, experiences, analysis, theories... To those who wish to get rich and famous, I say, bless you, I'll help you (ok not really so useful), but it can only work if you share first...

    Interesting question.

    I donb't know if it is realted to what Hideo Kozima (Portland) have been investingating for long (he suspects chaos to be involved, as he observes 1/f noise)


    note that one presentation at latest JCF was analyzing oscillations

    "Irregular oscillation pattern during heat generation from Ni-Zr based alloys and hydrogen gas"

    so AlainCo if you can point me in the right direction I can try and ram these into the spotlight at more popular places and make people take notice.

    I've just surveyed the abstract, and I've seen teem with various universities, and companies, working on different facet of LENR, not as if they wanted to reproduce, but now to develop instruments and method to understand ... I've psted a quick review

    20th meeting of the Japan Cold fusion Society. 13/14 December 2019

    the three first I cited, interested me, because they were parents, but working on 3 facets, heat, transmutations, chaos...

    Now is time to investigate, like Brillouin have done with Rahman too...

    What is strange is that the numerous solid and replicated success reported at JCF, published before, make much less noise than the failure of Google team, and the claims of il Dotore.

    The JCF contains incredibly convincing results, not only high energy par atom, numerous remote replications, but serious investigations through transmutations, chaos analysis, metallurgy... Someone doubting, will find the Japanese efforts absolutely great and convincing...

    The absurd focus of media is fascinating.

    Just a point on the sub-nano THz 3D imagery by Rahman&Rahman at Applied Research&Photonics.

    I have skeptical remarks on this technology, as it break diffraction limits my many orders of magnitude.

    In the founding papers of that technology, it is explained by scanning and reconstruction .

    Is there any good reference, replication, that may confirm it is a recognized method today?

    I've seen collaboration papers, good network across the planet, papers from 2013 to now,

    eg: https://prnano.scholasticahq.c…ctometry-and-spectrometry


    he vas invited as keynote speaked


    so personaly I'm confident if not enthusiastic, but who knows...

    His profile….uri?authorId=24071903200…_sub-surface_nano-scanner

    Why are BEC rejecting their own CECR theory? ...

    I feel it very good when someone adapt his vision after observations...

    This paper is very interesting not in the finding, but in the method.

    This is exactly what I imagined as the way to find the theory... improve instruments, use various kind of microscopes and spectrometers...

    And if they can change their theory this mean that with good observation they may find the good theory....

    Their instrumentation setup is very interesting....

    Good news.

    Heisenberg goes on vacation with his new GPS, in his new car.

    He is surprised to be caught by speed police

    Police: "Mr Heisenberg, you have been measured at 148km/h, which is 18km/h above the legal limit, what do you answer?"

    Heisenberg: "Oh Sh....t I'm lost now!"

    Thanks to Akito Takahashi for bringing this to my attention - the abstracts (link below) look very interesting, but sadly, no presentation listed from Mizuno.

    Some of the abstract seems very positive.

    It seems CleanPlanet, Nissant, with different universities, followed the NEDO funded team.

    • Excess Energy Generation Experiments using a Nano-sized Multilayer MetalComposite and Hydrogen Gas
    • Elemental Analysis for Elucidation of the Anomalous Heat Generation Phenomena
    • Irregular oscillation pattern during heat generation from Ni-Zr based alloys and hydrogen gas.

    The results of the elemental analysis, and the oscillation patterns, looks very interesting to guide theory...

    There is no results yet, but this gives me hope:

    • Low Energy Photon Measurements in Anomalous Heat Generation Experiments using Nano-sized Metal Composite and Hydrogen Gas

    Akito Takahashi&al are still improving their process

    • Enhancement of Excess Thermal Power in Interaction of Nano-Metal and H(D)-Gas

    Yuka Satoh&al from Kyusho University, are cross checking prevous work...

    Masahiro Takeya&al from Tohoku University, improves the calorimetry.

    The abstract of Hiroo NUMATA is hard for me to understand, and if I don't see LENR in it, it seems a very good way to understand the phenomenon.

    Abstract from Itsuki Imoto, seems to be inspired by Nedo team agains, and maye be considered as a replication...

    • Anomalous Heat in New Binary Metal System under Hydrogen Stream (2)

    Do you think it is rational for me to be happy ?

    I just fall on an old paper (ICCF14) by Hideo Kozima, Wu-Shu Zhang & John Dash…_PULSES_VS._EXCESS_ENERGY

    I remember that one key osition of Kozima is that LENR is a chaotic phenomenon, and he is one of the few to analyze the phenomenon that way (detecting 1/f noise for example). His way is interesting for me with my background of electronician.

    The second law he propose is not clear to me, but seems to say there is a preference to stable results

    "(2) The second law; The Stability Effect in the Yield of Product Elements by nuclear

    transmutation ([4] §2.11)."

    If someone can explain what it precisely mean?
