    Yes, and the triggering mechanism is the melting and decomposition of the oxide layer on the surface of the copper. Silver Oxide melts at around 300°C, and there was silver coating the copper wire in the LION debris, from the foil…

    Have a look at this excellent paper on the subject of High-Temperature Oxidation of Copper:

    That's a very powerful and extensive platform, seems aimed at "Enterprise" applications. What I have in mind is just a Python library package to add plotting in real-time, like this one. I have the mechanism to upload onto my…

    Looks like my posting of the chopped dc power waveform was somewhere else. Here's the waveform at 90% duty cycle as used in my last run. The harmonics extend out past 300 kHz.

    I can only answer the first question: in response to suggestions from E48, I rebuilt my power system to include the PWM DC chopper LION apparently uses. I published a plot of the resulting waveform and harmonics earlier in this…

    There was a bit of color change, but no hint of green there. These are in sequence: first the raw material before baking, then fresh out of the furnace after 6 hours at 800°C. Finally, the same material after cooling for 10 minutes in…

    The test is now under way. I'll post photos at the conclusion.

    There are plenty of threads for discussing Rossi. This is not one of them.

    OK,I can easily do the test you suggest. If time permits, I will also seal some of the calcined material in Argon as soon as it cools from the furnace. That might provide some additional insight into the stability of the proposed KFeO2 product in the…

    I provided some catalyst pellets to Alan Smith last year, which may be what he used in the test for you. I still have an ample quantity available for further testing if you have something in mind. I also had the Chinese-sourced pellets analyzed using…

    Because potential wrt ground is irrelevant. Within a Van de Graaf ball, the local electric field is essentially zero, just as the gravitational field inside a hollow earth would be zero, and for the same reason: the Shell…

    In practice the levels of tritium were significantly over the background with a direct correlation with the presence (but not quantity!) of excess heat. It is a logical fallacy to claim that tritium levels should be similar to…

    Yesterday it worked
    Today it is not working
    LENR is like that.

    You step in the stream,
    but the water has moved on.
    The Truth is not here.



    And this one is relevant, unfortunately:

    Last week Plotly worked
    Now Plotly is not working.

    The advancement of LENR know how has been near impossible in these last decades because of the profit motive that most experimenters operate under. No matter how hard these people work during their lives, their know how is lost to the grave. The open…

    The graphs were arranged so that the cumulative count started from zero at the start of the displayed period range.
    Since this might be confusing and requires more preparing work I'll avoid using this visualization next time.

    A bit late, but in the end I tried plotting counts per minute or CPM (obtained by subtracting the cumulative counts by the same shifted by 12 samples—one sample every 5 seconds this time) and marking the average of each series…

    It's cheap because it doesn't include the scintillator head (crystal + photomultiplier), although the pictures show it with a detector assembly. I think that might violate eBay rules, because they are showing something that is…
