    It was, but it did not work as well. See the ICCF21 paper.


    It seems for me, internal strain (leading to Storms's dislocations and nanocracks) is important for to have cold fusion work. Compare also Piantelli's whiskers and ENEA Fusion lab work with their palladium samples, mechanically tortured before use. Mizuno's rough protocol could fulfill this condition better than just electroplating. I'd also try electrolysis with his nickel mesh samples. After all, it's not system so different from classical Patterson cells, which no one still attempted to replicate.

    The Chiang's group has made a number of replication attempts, they just were rather impatient and using thin (wire) palladium samples, thus reaching low saturation levels of hydrogen within palladium. Which - as regular visitors of lenr-forum undoubtedly know - it's a predictor of cold fusion success here. Being bulk effect, cold fusion also requires rather large palladium sample to work probably for achieving sufficient internal tension and compression of palladium hydride inside palladium metal lattice.

    Sometimes more is less, i.e. one prolonged experiment has more chance to success than myriads of short-term ones. Currently the most reliable route for reaching high saturation levels of hydrogen within palladium in electrochemical experiments is co-deposition ala Stan Szpak from SPAWAR, which wasn't tested at all.

    In fact here is a prediction ... I predict that we will soon we see posts here whose logic is that because LENR faces a lack of acceptance from mainstream science it must therefore be true! But that reasoning is fallacious. Mainstream opposition to something doesn't make it true.


    This is what the straw man fallacy (combined with reduction to absurdum fallacy) is called. You're arguing against cold fusion from artificially introduced nonsensical position, which NO ONE here in this forum actually occupies. Of course that mainstream opposition to something doesn't make it true by itself, but such an application of a fallacy already IS a trait of pathological skepticism, i.e. biased perception of reality or tendency to deform it.


    IMO the ignorance of cold fusion has many aspects common with dismissal of quasicrystals and/or let say heliocentric model, because it requires to look at problem from dual perspective topologically inverted to mainstream. Yes, the Sun looks like revolving the Earth at the first sight, but what if it actually runs in opposite way? Yes, the atoms usually repel each other at distance - but what if there are also negative, i.e. attractive forces at distance? And so on - whole the scalar wave physics and crackpot overunity could be actually a stuff of topologically inverted perspective of space-time. After all, dark matter is also negatively curved space-time stuff, whereas general relativity allows only positive gravity and space-time curvature.


    The opposition to mainstream therefore can occasionally get true not only despite it's opposite to mainstream, but JUST BECAUSE of it. But the probability of this opposition will be quite different from mainstream science probabilities, which mainstream scientists use to expect. Mainstream science adheres on casual continuity, correspondence principle and universality of laws and established facts, whereas these dual hyperdimensional anomalies manifest itself along foamy and stringy manifolds in causal space - you should know where to look for them, universally valid determinism doesn't apply there - only rare coincidence of well tuned parameters.

    Maybe quasicrystals have more common with cold fusion within metallic lattices than one would guess. Quasicrystals are internal tension, negative space-time stuff close to metallic glasses, topological insulators and superconductors. Normally atoms are considered a rigid spheres which gives rather limited range of crystalographic groups and packing geometries based on Platonic solids in 3D. But occasionally they can behave like overlapping furry spheres or charged particles repelling at distance - it applies particularly to atoms sporting elongated d- and f-orbitals protruding from atom surface. In this case additional hyperdimensional packing geometries can be observed. Similarly to superconductors quasicrystalls are brittle, because they experience strong internal tension based on balance of strong repulsive and attractive forces and they're on the verge of crystalline and amorphous solids similarly to water clusters and ice. Their high locally compression of atoms crystal lattice at one side and loosening followed by formation of cracks and nanocavities at another brings conditions for localized directional waves and resonance effects at the crystal grain boundaries and along their dislocations. In my theory Coulomb barrier could be overcomed when collective action of multiple atoms colliding in 3D gets focused along density gradients of lattice in sort of piston and/or Astroblaster effect (water crystal fusion during sonofusion and/or laser implosions also comes on mind here). The anomalous distribution of electrons along these gradients would further enhance cold fusion by screening effects.

    A video of the ending of a CuCl vibration experiment (with a remarkable change of colour of the solution in a lapse of 3 hours as evidenced by the samples taken at preset time intervals) ... there is a lot of classic pseudo-science in this area. Look for the genuine science, not the guys with some demo who claims something unusual


    Copper chloride reduces to cuprous chloride by metal of vibrator, brown color at the end may also come from iron hydroxides. These experiments must therefore be carefully controlled for to avoid contamination of solution by metals from electrodes (platinum?) and compared with blind experiments for background. Until this hasn't been done it's difficult to speculate about possible LENR/transmutation effects/plasma/EVOs and another esoteric stuffs.

    A very efficient way to create cavitation is by means of ultrasound.


    Cavitation is closely related to my theory of overunity based on negentropic effects like the negative differential resistance. The microscopic bubble formation must overcome large activation energy barrier (similarity with fusion comes on mind here), which may be assisted with vacuum fluctuations. I can see some connection here to overunity observed during pulsed electrolysis of water. I think that trick here could be in interrupted formation of submicron bubbles, which get detached forcefully from surface rather than with cavitation in common sense. When nanobubbles of gas get separated from surface of electrode by means of vibrations, it could emulate conditions during formation of hydrogen by nanosecond pulses.


    Instead of vibrations electrochemists often use rotation disk electrode (20.000 rpms or higher) setup for studying of transient electrochemical phenomena and intermediates fast forming on electrodes, because this arrangement has relatively well defined hydrodynamic (thickness of laminal layer and Reynold's number across electrode radius).

    Everyman’s Turbomolecular Pump 


    What can you do with a very good vacuum pump? You can build an electron microscope, x-ray tubes, particle accelerators, thin films, and it can keep your coffee warm. Of course getting your hands on a good vacuum pump involves expert-level scrounging or a lot of money, leading [DeepSOIC] and [Keegan] to a great entry for this year’s Hackaday Prize. It’s the Everyman’s Turbomolecular Pump, a pump based on one of [Nikola Tesla]’s patents. It sucks, and that’s a good thing.

    The usual way of sucking the atmosphere out of electron microscopes and vacuum tubes begins with a piston or diaphragm pump. This gets most of the atmosphere out, but there’s still a little bit left. To get the pressure down even lower, an oil diffusion pump (messy, but somewhat cheap) or a turbomolecular pump (clean, awesome, and expensive) is used to suck the last few molecules of atmosphere out.

    The turbomolecular pump [DeepSOIC] and [Keegan] are building use multiple spinning discs just like [Tesla]’s 1909 patent. The problem, it seems, is finding a material that can be made into a disc and can survive tens of thousand of rotations per minute. It’s a very, very difficult build, and a mistake in fabricating any of the parts will result in a spectacular rapid disassembly of this turbomolecular pump. The reward, though, would be great. A cheap turbomolecular pump would be a very useful device in any hackerspace, fab lab, or workshop garage.

    OK, back to subject: the Amazon book is paywalled, but these studies aren't


    Maxwell's Equations and Occam's Razor:


    In this paper a straightforward application of Occam's razor principle to Maxwell's equation shows that only one entity, the electromagnetic four-potential, is at the origin of a plurality of concepts and entities in physics. The application of the so called "Lorenz gauge" in Maxwell's equations denies the status of real physical entity to a scalar field that has a gradient in space-time with clear physical meaning: the four-current density field. The mathematical formalism of space-time Clifford algebra is introduced and then used to encode Maxwell's equations starting only from the electromagnetic four-potential. This approach suggests a particular Zitterbewegung (ZBW) model for charged elementary particles.


    Electron Structure, Ultra-dense Hydrogen and Low Energy Nuclear Reactions


    In this paper, a simple Zitterbewegung electron model, proposed in a previous work, is presented from a different perspective that does not require advanced mathematical concepts. A geometric-electromagnetic interpretation of mass, relativistic mass, De Broglie wavelength, Proca, Klein-Gordon and Aharonov-Bohm equations in agreement with the model is proposed. Starting from the key concept of mass-frequency equivalence a non-relativistic interpretation of the 3.7 keV deep hydrogen level found by J. Naudts is presented. According to this perspective, ultra-dense hydrogen can be conceived as a coherent chain of bosonic electrons with protons or deuterons at center of their Zitterbewegung orbits. The paper ends with some examples of the possible role of ultra-dense hydrogen in some aneutronic low energy nuclear reactions

    The mirror universe is still here, but inside the neutrons, where neutrino oscillate. The cases of radioactive decays affected by seasonal dark matter and neutrino wobble may fall into this territory too. Litvinov and colleagues1 observe decay-rate oscillations with a period of about 7 seconds, here for decays of promethium-142 through electron capture, but similarly for praesodymium-140 — a phenomenon they attribute to the effect of neutrino oscillations.

    US20010040935A Patent from 2001: Commercial power production by catalytic fusion of deuterium gas With compare to other cold fusion patents, this one is quite detailed regarding experimental section. Inventor Leslie Case announced at Vancouver, ICCF VII 1993 meeting that deuterium gas could be fused into helium, when contacted with a palladium-on-carbon catalyst, at moderately elevated pressure and temperature. The mass of catalyst (such as in a bed) is first loaded with deuterium gas at a pressure of greater than one atmosphere, and then degassed by lowering the pressure to much less than one atmosphere absolute. This pressure lowering of the catalyst then results in a substantial rise of temperature, caused by fusion of deuterium nuclei which has been allegedly proven by formation of minute amounts He4 (twice as natural background).

    Q; Was Geoncentric model wrong?

    A: No. It was just more simple model which produced complicated equations in more complicated stuff. Ptolemaic epicycles were all correct and working, but for the most of the people just too complicated see this;


    Q: Is Standard model wrong?

    A: No. It's just more simple model which produces complicated equations in more complicated stuff, but if these are ignored it's all correct and working. Dark matter etc are very good explanations for people who are too simple to understand bigger scale stuff.


    I don't see any difference between Standard Model and Ptolemy's model after then... Was some theory even wrong according to you?

    It must be conspiratorial deep state censorship, just like the breakthrough in magnetic motors


    Deep state or not - but discussion about magnetic motors is actually censored even here, on this contrarian forum. This example just shows how pluralistic ignorance actually work - it's merely collective or intersubjective autocensorship rather than centrally organized one: but it doesn't make it less effective - on the contrary.

    Or conspiracy paranoia.


    I already faced many cases of accusation of conspiracy paranoia - but never accusation from pluralistic ignorance paranoia. Maybe it's time to finally start with it :-)

    Not sure where that thread went, or if it even existed.


    It just says a lot about maintenance and moderation of the forum, where whole threads disappear without trace. Which is also why I proposed another more down to Earth explanation.

    Scientists are searching for a mirror universe. It could be sitting right in front of you.  Mirror universe would have radiative and thermodynamic time arrow reverse - and after then just the antigravity and overunity devices (all these profaned Nicola Tesla technologies for example) would be just a manifestation of this mirror universe. Let the readers decide, if scientists are really looking for something like this - or merely boycotting all evidence of it. See also:


    No, we will not open a portal to a parallel universe Sabine Hossenfelder is proponent of quantum gravity approach dual to string theory and as such ideological opponents of extradimensions and multiverse models.

    Are the neutrons leaking into our universe from another? Original study, followup of ArxivBlog and recent one at New Scientist (open access).


    This is just another example of breaktrough observation, which has been done already by accident. It's rather difficult to assume, that the heavy particles like the neutrons could be a subject of quantum oscillations as a whole or even that they could completely evaporate from out sight. But the problem is somewhere else: because the neutrons lack the electric charge, their detection relies on presence of weak charge only, which could be a subject of oscillations inside of neutrons in similar way like a the case of neutrinos at free cosmic space. I.e. it's not a neutron what does oscillate here, but the weak charge inside of it. It should be noted, that the ultracold neutrons are surprisingly well reflected with 58-Ni isotope, which could have a close relation to the cold fusion mechanism, proposed by Widom-Larsen theory. The size/density of nickel atoms may be tuned in such a way, the volume waves of electron orbital resonate with surface waves of atom nuclei (there is strong isotopic effect for neutron optical potential).


    Regarding the brane world hypothesis, I don't see any reason why not to consider the common oscillations of neutrinos or even decoherence of photons and quantum oscillations as a whole as the evidence of it.

    This is NOT the dark ages.


    Mark Twain: The history doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes. Of course that the physicists aren't barbecued today for their contrarian ideas like Giordano Bruno (albeit Eugene Mallowe could possibly object it) - but in the times of informational explosion they are simply ignored with the same result: their opinions get silenced and inacessible for laymen. And the risk of excommunication and cutting from grant sources of research is way more imminent, than in the times of privately funded science of Galileo. Which is also why the members of scientific community are way more obedient in an average than Galileo did.

    But quarks are not real particles only resonant waves of particles


    In dense aether model the quarks are formed with aether vortices which are intertwined each other and thus forced to change direction, which is also source of their rest mass and charge field. This is how 2/3 and 1/3 charge quarks constitute closed loops of proton and neutron. Note that in this regard mobius strip of electron looks like degenerated two-quark particle too, i.e. sorta meson (Falaco soliton) living outside the surface of atom nuclei with one its half expanded and encircling the second shrunken one. This is why electron has two charges: Coulomb and leptonic one like neutrino. IMO the understanding of particle physics starts with their geometric models, not formal regression.

    The fake Higgs is a simple resonance of the proton relativistic mass (what a surprise when using protons... just a simple multiplication...)


    For me Higgs boson not only is real but even first supersymmetric particle ever discovered. If we would have microwave eyes, we would see sparse dodecahedral foam across the whole sky. Similar foam of "dark matter" emerges around particles and "Higgs bosons" are nodes of it. But because Peter Higgs predicted anything like this, this insight has been burrowed for not to threat Nobel prize appraisal and for to substantiate building of even larger colliders. There is lota stuffs hidden before eyes of laymen public.


    As96XnD.gif ba5okTI.gif


    Note also the dichotomy of experimental estimations of Higgs boson mass and Hubble constant. This isn't accident at all: both stars, both particles contain dark matter field around itself, which increases the density of Higgs field foam around them in comparison with observations utilizing photons only.
