    While heating a newly made* catalyst-resistor hybrid from a salvaged (used) coiled wire to fairly high temperatures, I noticed that the interior ceramic body seemed to "outshine" the wire (also coated in the same material). To the right the same sample…

    A few points to clarify:
    1. I haven't really put a lot of money behind these tests.
    2. I'm for the most part only exploring (learning about) the processes related to the synthesis of these catalysts, not trying to come up with a commercial

    Not sure if this is still of interest to anybody else, but I made more detailed photos of the process at various stages using another wire and the previously prepared K2CO3-Fe2O3 mixture.



    It seems that after holding the material for a long period at…

    The ceramic resistor broke again, but the broken pieces could be reattached together and function easily restored, which is an interesting property. The second attempt at this looked better.



    It can then be of interest to observe the the decay of the…

    I tried repeating the process to show it from start to finish. Unfortunately it did not go too well.



    • 15g K2CO3 was first dissolved in 10g H2O (not all dissolved) in a plastic container, then 15g Fe2O3 added and the compound stirred

    I tried a sort of catalyst-ceramic wire-wound resistor hybrid.

    I mixed K2CO3 and Fe2O3 in roughly equal amounts with some water to obtain a thick paste (although perhaps "mud" better describes what it felt like) and applied it inside and outside a newly…

    An interesting (?) although probably expected effect of the procedure is that once the treated surfaces reach a high enough temperature they start "fuming". The fumes form a persistent "fog" that quickly fills the environment and condenses on surfaces…

    Since a primary requirement for the patent application claims (as worded) is obtaining ultra-dense hydrogen, the patent examiner wants to read more background information about this state and how it's obtained, but not from Holmlid as an…

    There is an update from the European Patent Office, dated 17.06.2020.

    By the way, I'm also running a Geiger counter at about 1 meter distance from the jar, but besides daily variations from presumably Radon progeny, which causes a slowly increasing signal when the windows are closed, no increase was detected so far. I…

    For what it's worth, some time ago I tried using the yellow flame of a small lighter, heating a smaller carbon steel blade from the underside, and the process still worked. However, when I tried a blue flame from a gas stove, I couldn't…

    Thanks for reminding. In some aspects it seems to contain more or less general information on the catalysts, while in others it's more detailed, but except one quick mention in paragraph [0029] it does not discuss in detail the…

    KFeO2 is a metastable solid compound that only exists under specific conditions. Similarly to KOH, it quickly absorbs moisture and CO2 from the environment but with the addition that it decomposes in the process.

    I don't think it…

    I think the addition of organic compounds to the mixture might not work well, as potassium hydroxide can easily absorb the CO2 evolved and form rather stable carbonates that decompose at much higher temperatures than those involved in the tests described…

    In the past few weeks I have been testing a variation of the above process and it seems it was actually simpler than I thought. If a KOH aqueous solution is allowed to coat a rustable steel surface and then to evaporate under oxidizing conditions and…

    They don't go from there to muons; they went from experiments with ordinary muon-catalyzed fusion (the "original" cold fusion) to there.

    Platinum has been mentioned a few times by Holmlid (see for example excerpts below). As far as I understand, hydrogen-active/noble metals may in principle work for producing Rydberg atoms and matter of hydrogen, but their emission on the…

    There is no direct claim of higher energy output that I recall reading, but they're incredibly unclear on this regard. I didn't get the impression that their technology was being honestly described. When I wrote that if there's more it…
