    All I am asking is for one concrete link of an electrolytic experiment with these "large results" that Jed says are easy to find and decent calorimetry.

    The point here (if I remember - have been a bit busy with other stuff) is Jed's contention that my…

    Not if you read the "expert" reports!

    for me, and I used to be fascinated by BLP, the killer is this.

    As time has progressed their demos have changed to completely different systems - and each system has got more difficult to do precise measurements on…

    BLP has always been better at commercial fundraising then anyone else. Mills is very good at it. He has a compelling story for anyone who does not trust expert review of his voluminous and impressive output. And he has always had rich backers - once you…

    Link to specific experiment please, and I will tell you what is your mistake. I will not spend a few hours searching many papers, so it will need to be precise.

    as it should be - such strong evidence should be highlighted here.

    The Hg CF lamp transformation saga was very exciting to follow and get to the bottom of!

    Yes, but that is really not what I was doing if you read carefully.

    Joining the dots to make a picture is a valuable human ability. Scientists do it. But it is they always a matter of subjective judgement how much weight you give to unusual…

    I seem to have hit a nerve here but I am not sure why.

    I understand with waste of time. If everyone here has the fixed idea that LENR effects are caused by nuclear reactions any explanation of the case for skepticism is a waste of time.

    My post may…

  • psychological bias.

    The same psychology that makes people attracted to (or distrustful of) conspiracy theories will tend to make them more attracted to (or distrustful of) LENR as a mechanism for a collection of anomalies.

    Jed, you are being argumentative here.

    • Bomb calorimeters - irrelevant since cannot be used for the type of experiments we are talking about
    • Seebeck calorimeters - they have an equivalent to leakage - which is uneven heat detection from different heat

    Jed - I have given you one specific error cause - ATER. I know what you will say about it. And to save us time, perhaps you will remember my previous replies to that. and there are other mechanisms. suppose heat bursts from some mundane well…

    All calorimeters have errors due to heat leakage. These are compensated by calibration. Change in heat distribution in the calorimeter vary (slightly) the amount of this leakage.

    Therefore any effect that alters heat distribution in the cell between…

    Yes, indeed. Wave function decay is often exponentiual (not always) but it is true that reaction cross section is never zero.

    The NASA people are keen on potential mechanisms enhancing cross-sections that will bridge the many OOMs gap between the cross…

    I agree. I'd just add that in such cases both sides think the other has a psychological problem - and perhaps both are right!

    I am trying to see both sides - but it is quite difficult.

    Although only a few here realise it - I do not dismiss all those…

    CF results do not agree. The accepted lack of certainty in when CF happens means that you get different results even from the same apparatus, and this is ok.
    To take (since you quote it - and it is best understood) excess heat. 50% of all errors will

    I agree with what you say, but not that this makes a collectively stronger for a common nuclear origin because by definition positive LENR results are those that imply nuclear origin and therefore they are looked for (by these experiments). Any such…

    I think this is a slight misunderstanding of the contention here.

    Sure, there are a whole load of LENR papers (generally the modern ones, and some of the late F&P ones) which can be rejected. But there are also the post-F&P high quality early papers -…

    I did not see the specifics i asked for. Jed knows his library very well and could, were he willing, provide this. If I have missed this I am sorry - the link above is a link to Jed's library.

    Searching for a paper is not a great idea in this situation…

  • One thing that would also help is clarity about what is the nuclear reaction?

    history, great effort was made to detect neutrons, an expected nuclear product from…

    Absolutely not. At least not always! When (as for tritium) the expected value is much less certain than the measurement accuracy, a large value must be significantly bigger than that.

    I asked for figured because tritium values in water are so very…

    Define "large result. And quote the study please.
    My definition of large result is > 10 X average precipitation background for the year in which the experiment was conducted. (Background tritium has varied by factor of 1000X between 1970s and now).
