    It is common nowadays for submitting authors to be asked to nominate reviewers. I cannot imagine a system more prone to induce "log-rolling" - a positive feedback system for work of dubious quality.
    Long ago, I had papers (fairly…

    IMO if someone comes to this place claiming to have results, then they should report the results. Why make the claim if no report is intended?

    Repeated claims of results without showing results is at the very least annoying; and if done by the same person…

    Oh, that's perfectly understandable. It's just that patience is not my strongest suit, and things seem to be moving quite fast now that there are multiple centres using a common (more-or-less) basis for development. The more…

    Is there any way we can see some numbers or graphs? Will there be any publication?

    This is extraordinarily encouraging to the interested scientifically literate layman for for several reasons;

    * We now have two teams of scientists getting and publishing reproducible methods of obtaining sustained excess heat
    * Both are using roughly…

    Jed, is the rate of heat loss through the enclosure walls linear with respect to changes of temperature within the enclosure? Constant? Is it correct to assume 150W loss over a wide range of internal temperatures?

    Did not Mizuno have failures as well as successes? If he used the same mesh and Pd, that might point rather firmly to the method of loading the mesh with Pd.
    Perhaps secondarily to any precleaning/ oxidation-during-storage issues.

    (I'm assuming the same…

    It seems to me that the least controlled/controllable aspect of attempts to replicate Mizuno's results is indeed the Ni/Pd nexus. Different meshes, different physical and elemental compositions; different compositions of Pd; compounded by the inherent…
