    Can you help me understand why you're saying that Holmlid is fixated on fusion? (which you also mentioned in a different thread)

    He thinks that from two protons he's obtaining three kaons through a weak interaction; how would that be fusion?

    I'm not sure what I should be commenting in particular about them, but you can find below larger versions of the same.

    As far as I've been made aware of in private communication from different persons (unrelated to each other), the LiAlH4 compound alone is responsible for the excess heat observed in certain experiments as long as a proper…

    Has MFMP tried to replicate it? if not, why should have others?

    EDIT: to clarify, I just find odd that me356 is lamenting that nobody has attempted this while BG acknowledges the same. MFMP is the group with "direct access" to the inventor. It would…

    What is a "weak interaction" as mentioned by Holmlid in the highlighted section in the excerpt I previously posted and that you quoted?

    I'm capable of using Google and sort of got what you meant, but it would be best if people didn't have to guess what you might have actually thought while writing certain posts.

    You might not like them, but the papers from which excerpts have been posted above (the last one in particular) are experimental too.

    Whether or not the analysis of the time variation of the charged particle current with an oscilloscope is a…

    Since there would also be other materials in practice, emitted particles with MeV energy would inevitably interact with them to some extent.
    To further clarify, I'm referring to particles getting ejected from the ultra-dense layer.

    Where did I write that PP fusion is occurring?
    Here I was referring to D+D fusion (as in Pd-D experiments) or the fusion of p with other elements (as in Ni-H or similar experiments with protium).

    EDIT: for context and clarity, the points I was making…

    Since the process is supposed to first involve the condensation of hydrogen atoms into the so-called ultra-dense state where the atom-atom distance becomes (eventually) similar to that of muonic hydrogen, it's inevitable that some amount of regular…

    That the high energy particles (mesons, muons) do not come from ordinary nuclear fusion doesn't automatically define the process as LENR. This is what I meant.

    The emission of mesons and muons does not exclude…

    I don't think Holmlid sees his work as LENR, but he's explicitly related it several times over the years to known work and observed effects in the LENR field, citing for example Storms or Miley et al.

    In short he's saying that the…

    For what it's worth, about six months ago I emailed him for a couple questions on related matters and from what I could gather he expected work/studies from his group (which is not the same of Holmlid's although they authored a few papers…

    A Google search shows pretty much zero references on the Internet about that so I'm not sure how Sindre Zeiner-Gundersen expected to raise funds. On the other hand by asking on E-Cat World MFMP managed to raise 350,000$ (+800,000$ offered) to save Suhas…

    Looking forward to reading the results. On a related note, I've recently learned that NaOH/KOH solutions are sometimes used in PET recycling to break the material down at elevated temperature and pressure through "alkaline hydrolysis", so…

    As far as I am aware of, Suhas' fuel there is composed of a LiOH-containing slurry with several metals. PET isn't compatible with soda or potassium lye. While lithium lye would be the least caustic alkali hydroxide solution, it could still damage the…

    Muons have a mass of 105.6 MeV/c2 (Wikipedia), so a velocity of >500 MeV/u (u = atomic mass unit = 931.5 MeV/c2) means an energy of roughly 57 MeV. Such muons would not travel very far into the atmosphere.

    Atmospheric muons reaching sea level…

    On a more careful read it's clear that Storms meant that the unstable elements are getting their decay accelerated, so 40K couldn't be a "typo" but actually what he intended to write. Still, it's interesting that there was a nearby isotope…
