    But these chemical reactions are only in the 100 eV range which would never be sufficient to yield the 20-40 MW power range claimed by Mills. By comparison two proton fragmentation to kaons yields around 300 MeV, and any subsequent muon catalysed fusion…

    How about Norront Fusion/Holmlid's prospects then? They seem to be convinced they are onto something involving meson release from ultra dense H but still have no clear explanation/theory how protons start spontaneously fragmenting on establishing the…

    Il Dottore is a safe bet. Unfortunately he is too prudent in inviting investors.

    Cheers,

    Any idea how much Leonardo Corp is worth now compared to IH, BLP or BEC?

    But isn't the inescapable conclusion that the Suncell generates too much power (I remember Mills quoting 400 MW in one lecture) to be accounted for by a simple chemical reaction? Maybe he was exaggerating somewhat, but in the light of Holmlid;s/Norront…

    I wasn't suggesting actually doing it - rather the opposite due to the explosive potential - and home-grown Suncells would be unlikely due to their complexity and cost - leave that to BLP its their invention.

    This Conrad replication is really interesting - the presence of K and Titanium oxide on the heating filament was probably sufficient for Rydberg Matter formation, then subsequent condensing to hydrino/ultra dense hydrogen state (note the low pressure…

    However, adding deuterium or tritium to one of Mills' Suncells might produce a nuclear chain reaction type explosion with a massive instantaneous release of energy - just don't try this at home!

    Why not design a Suncell - SAFIRE hybrid reactor? Maybe too many patents and vested interests in the way though?

    OK - so the initial energy gain on switching on the power to a Suncell would be of the order of 200 during the formation of hydrinos which, if they have similar properties to ultra dense hydrogen start fragmenting, protons to kaons releasing the order of…

    But if there is net energy release there has to be some net mass reduction even if gamma pair production to mass occurs at the same time as mass converts to energy?

    But aren't we equating hydrinos with a form of Holmlid's ultra dense hydrogen? In which case there would be spontaneous meson release from hydrinos, possibly stimulated further by electrical stimulation - releasing a lot of energy as well as subsequent…

    Well that's obvious because of his complete failure (although he comes out of it £millions on top!). My suspicion of investment advice in any field is simply that they pretend its not really gambling when really that's all it is. Gambling on future…

    THHuxleynew - lots of things are simply not being discussed re the Mizuno replications - why the Deneum replication failed, why Zhang only obtained transient excess heat results or why Mizuno's later R21 re-incarnation was not so effective as R20 - we…

    Holmlid uses high D/H pressure as a control run as in discussion;

    The pulse shower of charged particles formed by the laser pulse gives a large voltage disturbance in all parts of the apparatus. In Fig. 3, the procedure used to subtract this voltage from…

    More transient excess heat results due to using too high deuterium/hydrogen gas pressures (similar to Zhang's replication attempts). Holmlid has clearly shown that pressures above one or two mBar block -muon formation and thus subsequent fusion…

    So if as you say we don't have mass conversion to energy, where does the energy come from in LENR? And how do transmutation reactions occur without some mass - energy conversion?

    Does 'your team' give independent valuation advice about all cold fusion companies or just IH? Aren't all investments in this field a total gamble until some product is brought to market, so what can you really base this advice on? Probably just gut…

    As you say maybe this is the only approach likely to work - we all want Mills to reach success as with any other alternative fusion project - its just difficult to determine what progress is being made when the experiments make little sense to external…

    It's all rather 'shit and bust' kind of approach to experiments though, you'd think after all the time and money spent on this project sensible, controlled, repeatable and consistent experiments would be the order of the day.

    So what's new about this? Hasn't it all been patented before?
