  • Stevenson Replied to the thread Plasma electrolysis at lower voltages.

    Sorry, link fixed...

    You got it! This is the natural evolution of this concept... Ultrasounds are able to generate plasma by themselves (sonoluminescence) under proper conditions, and probably they will facilitate the formation of plasma…

  • Stevenson Replied to the thread Plasma electrolysis at lower voltages.

    With reference to mechanisms of formation of the electrolytic plasma, I found this paper: Electrolytic plasma technology: Science and engineering - An overview
    According to classical interpretation, plasma is formed into little bubbles that are formed in…

    It is expected that noise increases with themperature in CMOS sensors, but in order to have noticeable effects the temperature should rise above 40-50°C. However, CMOS photodiodes are able to detect (are affected by) charged particles…

    (Quote from Alan Smith)

    Breakdown phenomena are usually related to high voltages. In general classical plasma formation is associated to quite high energies, either as electric fields or high temperatures, and non-condensed matter. The electrolytic plasma…

    I link this post from another thread, because I think it is relevant:
    RE: US Navy new LENR patent application (25/03/2021)This is a famous experiment from SPAWAR that apparently detected "neutrons" generated from the cell. The cell design and the…

  • Stevenson Replied to the thread Plasma electrolysis at lower voltages.

    I tryied a couple of times to detect SR by using CDs (CD-R or DVD-R): the "data" side is not so easy to scratch, if handled with a certain care. Even setting on it metallic samples, do not leave any scratch.
    However, up to now I have not observed proper…

  • Stevenson Replied to the thread Plasma electrolysis at lower voltages.

    Well done Can! Quite similar results to the ones I obtained many years ago! I don't remember all the details, but in my case the cathodic deposit was less compact, and it detached from the cathod (fell off) as it was formed. The diameter of the wire was…

  • Stevenson Reacted with Like to can’s post in the thread Plasma electrolysis at lower voltages.

    I repeated the suggestion by Stevenson using a closer distance between the electrodes and different cathode position so that it would draw material from the anode nickel wire "wool", and results (again using 10% HCl) were interesting.

    Unfortunately…

    Hei Can! I don't know what your experiments are aimed at (e.g. excess heat, transmutation, radiation, etc.), but I can tell you that you can obtain an electrolytic plasma even at lower voltages and lower currents compared to the ones you are using. I…

    You got it! ;) It's the Occam's razor (that can be found in medieval sources in three or four versions).

    This is one of the candidate hypoteses. And actually it is not too difficult to test: the mean free path of H+ ions from the working electrode is strongly dependent from the gas pressure. Ionizing radiation (either high energy…

  • Stevenson Replied to the thread US Navy new LENR patent application (25/03/2021).

    This kind of "textual plagiarism" in patents is not strictly forbidden, sometimes entire paragraphs of books or papers are reported in the text, also sometimes entire books goes into cited documents list and became publicly available in violation of…

  • Stevenson Replied to the thread US Navy new LENR patent application (25/03/2021).

    Well... for sure a good news, but nothing really impressive and new in the document. They simply replicated Rossi in a quite trivial way. In comparison dr. Parkhomov did a much more sophisticated work.
    However, IMO the most important points are those not…

    The cold rolling process has some similarities with this, and has been used by some LENR researchers. Also the spin melting and other strange metallurgic thecniques have been used. The results up to now are not so consistent though.
