Ruby is the organizer behind the yearly ‘Cold Fusion Calendar’ but more importantly she produces audio and video material with some of the leading LENR researchers. Her work over the years have been invaluable to the community and has inspired yours truly.
Video – LION is using commercial abrasive diamonds bonded onto Nickel pads – the whole fuel preparation process is explained clearly, though more details are always useful, and will be released. The diamond pads are soaked in D2O (heavy water) and variously baked – the processes described in the video – and then simply wrapped into a bundle with copper wire inside one of our alumina fuel tubes….
The evolution of reactor designs has lead to a fifth generation LENR reactor. This reactor design builds upon Differential Scanning Calorimetry. Instead of using one PUS to heat up the reactor ports in serial the model features two PSUs that allows the researcher to hold a very accurate temperature variance. In case of an excess heat event this design allows the researcher to plot out how much excess heat has been produced in Watts.
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.
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.
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.
While investigating the electrolytic activation of granular carbon for use as a catalyst for generating pure hydrogen from water and a metallic hydroxyl ion acceptor, members of a research group here and in the USA witnessed sudden and unexpected evolution of considerable amounts of thermal energy, and the release of what is probably Beta radiation.
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.
“Specially designed new material, based on amorphous Nd-Fe composition apparently shows abnormal heat production under hydrogenation plus electromagnetic triggering”
