Sonication & Hydrogenation of Nano Nickel (video)

During this fuel preparation experiment we subjected 20 micron nickel powder to 12 hours of ultrasound bombardment at low temperature. During the course of the Sonication, the flask containing the nickel was alternately vacuumed and flushed with pure hydrogen. The purpose of this experiment was to remove surface oxides from the nickel and adsorb hydrogen into the metal matrix.

Setting out to test ‘The Mills Protocol’ in January

Based on the discussion document we are now releasing a ‘best case protocol’ for the cleaning and loading. Our intention is to follow up with a video of the Ultrasonic Treatment and Hydrogenation, and possible a live-streamed experiment where we test the recipe in a ‘Friendly Robot LENR Reactor’ with add-on for pressure control.

Peculiarities of hydrogen absorption – Nd90Fe10

A fierce exothermic reaction was detected in Nd90Fe10 films with sufficient degree of amorphous phase upon filling them with hydrogen or deuterium, which resulted in the melting of the samples and the Cu foil, in which the samples have been wrapped. Possible reasons for the discrepancy are discussed including low energy nuclear reactions taking place at the initial stage of hydride formation.

Olympus Inverted Metallurgical Microscope

This is our latest acquisition. An Olympus PSM inverted metallurgical microscope. This one has seen very little use, and despite being almost 40 years old optics and mechanics are in perfect condition. Quite a lot of cleaning and some rewiring was needed though – it had been gathering dust in a quiet corner of the Quality Control Department of a major engineering company.

Ultra Deep Clean with Sonics – Building a simple Ultrasound Cleaner

Ultrasonic cleaning is the rapid and complete removal of contaminants from objects by immersing them in a tank of liquid flooded with high-frequency sounds waves. These non-audible sound waves create a scrubbing brush action within the fluid. Anything you put into the tank gets vibrated at very high-frequence, in this case, 28,000 times a second.

Rossi’s Knot Untangled: Practical Mechanisms For The Induction of Cold Fusion in Metal Hydrides

In this paper, the author describes the fundamental requirements to induce Cold Fusion or Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) inside of the crystal lattice structure of metals capable of absorbing hydrogen – such as nickel, palladium, platinum, titanium, and titanium. Practical considerations are provided for the preparation of powders in such a manner to allow for high levels of hydrogen loading….

Ultrasonic Fuel Treatment As A Gateway To Nickel/Hydrogen LENR

In this discussion paper we describe a proposed method of preparing nickel powder for use in ‘dogbone’ or ‘Model T’ nickel-lithium-hydrogen reactors. This method, while not new, has seemingly been overlooked by many LENR researchers and replicators. The use of ultrasonic cleaning of nickel as a slurry in an alkane solvent (n-hexane), magnetic separation of pure nickel from oxide fragments and subsequent measures to limit the reformation of oxides and promote the absorption of hydrogen are described in detail….

Mixing Fuel – Part 2 (Sealing and baking reactor cores)

How to pre-treat, fill and seal fuel cores in 10 simple steps: Pre-bake empty fuel core in oven at 800C for 30 minutes to remove moisture and de-gas. (You can do this in your reactor or – as we do – in a small furnace.) Allow fuel core to cool down to room temperature. Carefully funnel prepared fuel mix into core. (If you want, add a gas such as dry Hydrogen into the core) Squeeze…

Mixing Fuel – Part 1

The ‘Model T’ LENR KIT is built to effectively handle High Temperature and provide easy measurements of Parkhomov type of experimentation. Ever kit comes with a set of empty cores, so before we can start performing experimentation on fuel compositions, wave forms, etc we have to bake the fuel and seal the cores. Everyone has their own recipe for baking and preparing fuel and it is therefore our hope that together we can nail down criteria needed…
