    Asbestos manufacturers all over the planet are getting sued by customers and former employees for not acknowledging for decades the risks that producing and using such material would bring. Nowadays asbestos is banned in many countries. What will happen…

    If pressure is in the 3~6 bar range like KeithT suggests in the post you've linked I doubt that a glow discharge would be occurring in the device at any point of operation. It would be more similar to a high pressure arc lamp.

    I recall (I should be linking some references for this) there were even discussions/speculations on whether the reactor "cores", likely in the form of capillary tubes due to the reported plasma size, were placed in series or parallel inside…

    Didn't the arrangement in Stockholm reportedly contain 3 QX, all with a "hair-like" (what he said during the event, which appeared to contradict what he told Mats Lewan later on) plasma region?

    By the way, this page on his website appears to be quite new:

    So we know that at the very least he keeps himself updated with recent news on the topic.
    Interesting that he's also…

    I would like to point out that Simon Brink's proposed excess heat setup composed of SS316 alloy plates and a hydroxide solution (e.g. KOH) is in principle not too different from the typical "HHO" cell, only that in this case the plates are allowed to…

    Not knowing in advance what would be the best AC frequency to use, ideally the frequency would range from a few Hz to somewhere arund 100-150 kHz. There have been suggestions of frequencies from "a few hundred Hz" to "100 kHz", but this…

    I haven't specifically tested yet how mine reacts with active power tools nearby (I could try one of these days), but it seems that these Geiger counters aren't particularly sensitive to EMI. Alan Smith posted some time back a video of a…

    To check if my logging system is working correctly I tried taking a couple photos to calculate a longer term CPM average from the displayed values on the Geiger counter (which hasn't been moved from its usual location)

    Thanks for the suggestions, will test and report as soon as I get the materials.

    Random observation: interestingly KOH has about the same molecular weight as Iron-56, the most common isotope of the the main solid element composing the…

    I don't have that yet, so I'd need to get some.

    I have avoided hydroxides as they need more caution than carbonates and I've been performing these tests kind of carelessly. Would potassium carbonate also work? Or is your hunch based for…

    That would be useful, although I'm not making any strong commitment yet on purchasing equipment dedicated to LENR experimentation.




    As for the actual experiments (if so they can be defined), they continue with what I already have, which…

    From that, I ended up determining that a ready-made H-bridge circuit and perhaps an Arduino could be used for the task, although for just controlling the frequency a timer circuit might be sufficient. A few issues, though:

    Any suggestion for something that could be tweaked over a very wide AC frequency range, is economical and very fault tolerant? The 5V/12V DC switching power supply (intended for usage with computers) I have has been abused quite a lot and…

    I'm sorry, I'm out of ideas here. It would help to have a schematic or diagram of what you're trying to accomplish, but the above drawing is too cryptic for that.

    Basically do you plan (among other things) dropping ignited thermite into water or some sort of electrolyte solution? Steam explosions might occur so beware. The rapid cooling might cause some of the molten material to become glassy, which could…
