    (Quote from Alan Smith)

    I did an extensive study of the problem, following a failure similar to yours in GS3.2. I found the conductivity of high-density sintered alumina to be fairly benign up to ~800°C, when it increased abruptly as shown on the…

    Another fact of possible interest: a common ceramic combining alumina and silica ("Mullite") is used in high-temperature labware as a lower cost alternative to pure sintered alumina. In early Glowstick tests (GS3) we found that reactor tubes made of…

    From a quick read, it seems mostly concerned with the breakdown of dielectric liquids under the direct application of high voltages (many kV) with moderately sharp electrodes.

    I think the circumstances in the experiments described in this…

    I can read Wiki as well as anyone. I was aware of Trevethick's earlier work and said "the first commercial locomotive" to be clear.

    The first commercial steam locomotive (Salamanca") was built by Matthew Murray in 1812. The similar Cherepanov machine was over 20 years later.

    Aspersions aside, they are both casting big aspirations. And in the best of futures perhaps both will succeed.

    That looks much like the video posted last year, complete with water splashing out of the open 'boiler'. It would be nice if some actual data was available, but alas not so.

    SindreZG Was that directed to me? I have a 50mm NaI 4k channel gamma spectrometer: Spectrum Techniques UCS30. Also an X123 system with CdTe detector, covering roughly 5-100 kev. For neutrons, I built a He3 corona tube detector, …

    Some metal oxides, in particular KFeO2 which is the active phase in styrene catalysts, directly desorb alkali atoms in a Rydberg state upon heating at elevated temperatures, so it should not be strictly needed with them. At…

    No, not Holmlid-like testing. I crushed a catalyst pellet and added 9% (wt.) to the Ni+LAH fuel in Glowstick 5.1. That produced a null result (no excess heat or radiation). The data files for that run were not posted but are available…

    137Cs has two peaks detectable by a typical NaI scintillator, 662 and 32 kEv. The attached chart shows a 10-minute calibration with the detector inside a 10cm lead cave to reduce background.

    I know many don’t watch these videos because “they are too long”, I have to admit that sitting for up to 2 1/2 hours watching these often seems to be almost an impossible task in these days where everything has to move fast. Even Bob suggests one…

    At the moment the CMOS sensor (covered with one layer of Al foil and black tape) is at about 33 centimeters from the the tip of the tube, at an angle of about 30° due to space constraints. However, since hydrogen is not contained within…

    NaI scintillation energy will drift over time, influenced by the crystal temperature and that of the photo multiplier used. It's therefore important in these measurements to do a pre- and post-calibration with a known isotope like 137Cs. That will give…

    eros If possible, please post a background spectrometer chart for the same settings and duration. It's hard to draw any conclusions without that as a baseline for comparison.

    So why dd they do it? Perhaps just a clumsy misinformation attempt, like patent spam.

    What if the Navy device works as claimed? How might they use it in Navy operations?

    Unless it's meant to just be a test of the US Patent Office, the Navy probably invested staff and resources in developing it, enough to want a patent. The power density…
