Cold Fusion

Brev Till Rossi

G Bm 
Andrea Rossi jag är ditt fan 
C D 
du byggde magisk box av bly och järn 
G Bm 
och fyllde den med lite nickel 
C D 
jag läste ny tekniks artikel 

C G 
men några tror att det är scam 
E Am 
men jag är inte en av däm 

D E 
för jag vill se en bättre värld 
Am D 
med fri energi och rent vatten 
C G 
medan kritikerna knaprar hatten 

Det var ju synd med Defkalion 
men du var ändå inte värd dom 

du tjänar snart en hel biljon 
på ekatter med kall fusion 

och Rossi du är ej felfri 
du visste inte om grekisk ekonomi 

för jag vill se en bättre värld...

LENR in a Nutshell

These care just my thoughts based on things I read about LENR. LENR effects occur when a (proton) conductor crystal usually based on nickel or palladium undergoes a phase transition becoming an insulator. The insulator phase is characterized by a uniform energy distribution in the wave function preventing ionic conduction and facilitating Umklapp processes. The size of the crystal lattice determines the ionic tunneling time in the insulator phase. Crystal dimension of 60 nm produce a 3 millisecond tunneling time. Tunneling time increases drastically with larger crystal sizes, i.e., LENR reactions are not observed in a crystal size less than 6 nm. In the insulator phase, gamma rays are absorbed through the coherent quantum Umklapp processes which provide the collective momentum required for LENR and restrict the generated phonons to the surface giving the illusion that the effect is a product of the surface conditions, the so-called Nuclear Active Region. Second order effects such as spellation, neutron emission, etc. obscure the basic phenomena to some people's minds. The phase transition to and from the insulator phase is marked by the release of a burst of gamma rays. The key sustained energy release is maintaining the uniform energy distribution of the wave function. Multiple small reaction chambers are used to help keep the temperature stable and low enough to prevent melting of the alloy. In nickel-hydrogen systems, energy production is in large part due to the beta decay of intermediate transmutation products back into nickel. Final transmutation products include 11% iron, 10% copper and small amounts of tin in the case of the E-CAT which uses a catalyst. Proton release has been detected through the use of cloud chambers. I wonder whether double proton emission and chain reactions occur. Gamma rays from positron annihilation were not detected. I wonder what Preparata and Majorana would say about this, but I presume they are dead. Majorana particles released? Who can doubt it or him! Sakarov would ask if cosmic rays are involved. Does it work a thousand feet underground? Edmund said that Rossi was just looking for a catalyst to combine hydogen with carbon di and monoxide. Rossi says he knew he had something when he burnt his hand. Haha!!

My thought on the E-CAT.

The reaction produces 11% Fe, 10% Cu and some Zn.
62Ni to 63Cu (70%) and 64NI to 65Cu (30%). 64Cu decays to 64Zn as well as 64Ni. Proton-induced reactions on nickel.  Chain reaction nickel + proton  + gamma yields iron + double proton emission?  Effect of electrons migrating from nickel lattice to hydrogen atoms, the Beryllium shielding on the reaction and Mössbauer effect.

Additional LENR Documents

Low Energy Nuclear Revolution (English version) from Giacomo Guidi on Vimeo.
An engineer and a scientist make a public presentation of a controversial machine. It is a reactor which, apparently, produces a low energy nuclear reaction.

The prototype, called "energy catalyzer", shocks everyone. In the internal chamber a reaction between nanometric granular nickel and hydrogen gas, aided by a secret catalyzer, releases a stunning amount of energy. The demonstration spurs an extremely polarized debate between supporters and skeptics, which resembles the response to the announcement of Fleischmann and Pons in 1989, when they reported to the world the discovery of what became known as "cold fusion".

This film summarizes the main events from the january 14th experiment to the present day and introduces the leading characters. It is released as a promo, to find support to continue following the story to the end, producing a full- legth version before spring 2012.

Closing Songs


condicio sine qua non (in music)

This illustrates the difference between the English version of a song and the Swedish and Spanish ones. 

The English versions were not exactly hits while the other versions are still popular.
