  • Frogfall Reacted with Like to Paradigmnoia’s post in the thread LENR FAQ (for Newcomers).

    (Quote from Daniel_G)

    I was testing explicitly the Mizuno type calorimeter at that time. I had air speed by Pitot tubes and was instrumenting up a mass air flow sensor that uses the pitot ports. What I wanted was a more independent measurement method of…

    I had an interesting version of the latter once, while attempting to calibrate the outlet air flow of a older style Mizuno type calorimeter. After mucking about with a few dozen hot wire anemometer traverses, I thought why not just…

    There has been plenty of work done on this problem, over the last century or so. And yes, all fluid flow measurement methods either affect the system you are trying to measure, in some way, or they are affected by proximity…

    I’m glad you find this useful. Even the simplest of experiments can produce results that turn out to be hard to interpret. However, when something really unexpected happens and you dismiss it because “it’s impossible” instead of…

    If you start with a solution that contains 546 mg/L of dissolved K, then apply 30 seconds of 20 Khz ultrasound, and measure again the concentration of dissolved K and is now 387 mg/L (all samples analyzed by triplicate with calibrated against a…

  • Frogfall Reacted with Like to Rob’s post in the thread Does ultrasonic transmutation prove LENR?.

    Okay... But the topic is just whether or not ultrasonic transmutation proves the existence of LENR. I guess the answer is a definitive "yes"? So if I gave a TED Talk, and I showed people the ULTR experiment and the results, and I said, "See? All sorts of…

    Big Big 😊 Thanks
    For I have so much to learn...

    The great Teslas and Edisons didn't know what was going through the wires. That didn't stop them from changing the world.

    For a century, we did not know the mode of action of Aspirin, but it remained the most effective drug.

    Going back to the Martin Fleischmann interview, from IE (linked by Gregory Byron Goble )

    Fleischmann's reference to Francis Bacon is very important here. Bacon's publication of the Novum Organum in 1620 was a landmark in philosophical and…

    Coherent consideration.
    Coherence matters.

    I am beginning to understand a few papers by Fleischmann.

    These three are far from the Science Orthodoxy of 1989. Do they shed light on Coherence in Condensed Matter Nuclear Science energy systems? They are…

    I wasn’t aware of the ZETA project, but I am aware, and have told the story many times already but is worth repeating here, about the Z Machine of Sandia Labs. In 2006 this machine produced what was the highest temperature achieved artificially (3,6…

    Rob if you didn't read the ZETA wikipedia piece (linked above), just have a read of this section of the article. It gives a bit of background as to why people assumed that a particular kinetic energy was required for D+D fusion.

    That accelerator in…

    On page 2 there was mention of ZETA. This was a massive embarrassment for Harwell, and the UK, at the end of the 1950s.
    In later years some of the older staff could not even be persuaded to talk about the escapade - it was…

    This interview touches on an area where Fleischmann feels a wrong turn was made wherein atomic or nuclear energy from an electrochemical cell... Defied Orthodoxy.

    Here is the story of the most hilarious Nature rejection, with the accompanying rejection letters:

    Fleischmann said the people at Harwell were cooperative and gave him all the data he asked for. Melich and Hansen analyzed this data and concluded that the Harwell experiment probably produced excess heat. See:

    Every statement here is incorrect. Obviously, you have not read anything about Miles, or you did not understand what you read. All of these issues are addressed in his papers. For that matter, they were addressed by me, in my…
