  • The gradual rise in COP reported by Brillouin from an initial 1.5 to over 2.5 suggests a slow increase in NAE sites in their Al2O3/Ni reactor cores occurs over a very long timescale, taking several MONTHS of high frequency electrical pulse stimulation. …

    Does that mean his latest demo is not worth talking about? Or Is it just all too embarassingly bad?

    Rossi is like Trump already 'tired of winning'.

    No benefit of the doubt then - a sad day for LENR - but then the new NANOR and Japanese studies with the new funding from Mitsubishi could bring a breakthrough. We'll see.

    To pour more fuel on the flames - there's probably no such thing as a Skeptical Swede - they're all too polite to doubt anything presented in good faith etc........and then they had Gullstrom babbling on thru the demo as well completely incomprehensible…

    Well he hasn't fooled me or anyone else with a grain of common sense - makes him a very intelligent totally amoral con artist, and that is all - maybe he didn't set out to be this way when he started petroldragon in the 1980's, you know all the green…

    No you're not, Jed is right and Rossi's most recent SK demo just demonstrates without any shadow of doubt that everything he does is without any integrity whatsoever.

    Erm - could it be that he just made up the spectral data? (simplest answer) The real spectrum might have revealed the presence of a Hg vapour or deuterium lamp perhaps? LOL.

    I don't think a bomb test would be very convincing for anyone - its much more important to be able to demonstrate a controlled release of energy which can be used constructively. Boil a kettle and make a cup of tea with zero input energy.

    Liked RussGeorge’s post in the thread Atom-Ecology.

    A possibility of course. But for know I am delighted to have a 'witness material' that proves a minimum temperature of 2050C achieved with a substantial mass of material. The same experiment destroyed other refractory materials as…

    All that NANOR work is now in the public domain - have you and Russ had similar success using ZrO2 etc? Transition metal oxides (TMO's) seem to be the way to go in ultracapacitors, and mixtures with perovskites look favourable for a new generation of…

    Well if they granted Brillouin and AR's patents this seems totally unfair since Swartz's work has effectively been replicated by other groups (Takahashi and others). One wonders if it might be academic politics at MIT rearing its ugly head?

    Nice to know - looks like patenting problems have prevented his NANOR device development or any possible marketing?

    This is an interesting description of NANOR events as of 5 yrs ago - maybe we can update this with newer theory? All been nicely replicated by the Japanese groups recently although they didn't observe such high COP's (maybe this is irrelevant / the…

    So, anyone know what happened to Schwartz's NANOR devices if he was marketing them 5 years ago? Be nice to test one if they are still available.

    Maybe the Al2O3 is not just a refractory material but might be a substrate for D or H rotatoral collapse and so be an active ingredient in LENR? Maybe it acts like ZrO2 in Takahashi's experiments - lots of open questions in atom ecology.

    It would make for a really good serialised comedy - could call it 'Rossi fakes it again' or 'LENR's Lament'! Come to think of it there hasn't been a good parody of a green energy scam recently, this could make an excellent Amazon Original serial -…

    Please don't think I was inferring there ARE 'multitudes of physicists' engaged in researching LENR...., I was implying that, if there was any quantifiable, empirical evidence of their existence.....there WOULD be....lol... !
