E-Cat Status

This is my summary and interpretation of the status of the E-Cat based on Andrea Rossi's blog and the latest news release. 
  • 3rd Party E-Cat Testing is Complete. They are now in the analysis stage. 
  • There is a news release from a distributor, i.e. manufacturer with exclusive rights for distribution in Italy.
  • News release about the nominal operation of the hot E-Cat.  
  • The seminal idea leading to the hot E-Cat was separating the E-Cat into two parts.  One part being the activator called the mouse which contains one charge (i./e., fuel, not electrical charge). The other being the apparatus for the device proper called the "cat" containing a different charge. Both are contained in the same housing. Andrea Rossi came up with the idea.
  • Papers detailing the results of the testing will be released over the next few months.
  • Three different industrial versions are currently being manufactured. One is (natural) gas fired. 
Personally, I keep wondering whether the so-called secret catalyst may actually act a fuel, i.e., as a substrate like the nickel that ultimately leads to the transmutation products. I am thinking of it in terms of its halo and Rydberg states, i.e., the mixing of these nuclear and electronic states.

A solsten has finally been discovered. Link to the paper reporting it. It was recorded in the inventories of churches and monasteries, but none had ever been found.

Solsten = Dichroic (Polar Clock) or linearly birefringent (Solar Compass) device.

Papers I Read Today

Resonance-like nuclear processes in solids: 3rd and 4th order processes

Summary, In the case of NI-H systems, nuclear power produced by quasi-resonant electron assisted double proton absorption processes

Nuclear processes in solids: basic 2nd-order processes

Summary: If the reaction takes place in solid
material, the nuclear energy is taken away by an electron
of the environment (the metal), the Coulomb interaction induces a
p + d → 3He nuclear.

The "Falling to the Center" Effect

The "falling to center effect" is now called "atomic collapse Resonance".

Ancient Egyptian / Linear A Notes

Ancient Egyptian did not have the letter "L".  Only in late Egyptian was the lion glyph added. The greek sounds [g], [kh], [gw], [b], [ph], [th], as well as, [L] are missing from the Linear B alphabet.  Valério 2007 demonstrates that the Linear-A sign  is based in form on the Egyptian sr , "official/dignitary/courtier." The Linear A inscriptions were chiseled into stone rather than the neat etchings of the Egyptians. See KADMOS  figure 4. This glyph is related to Hebrew srn and Ugaritic tsrn (Akkadian transliteration suranu) = /tsuranu/ prince. So, is this where our English word thou or Swedish du comes from?  Does anyone know how to pronounce ? I rest my case. Probably nobody understands anyway.

A Graphene Article in Nature that I Should Read

Photoexcitation cascade and multiple hot-carrier generation in graphene

Nature Physics
Published online


The conversion of light into free electron–hole pairs constitutes the key process in the fields of photodetection and photovoltaics. The efficiency of this process depends on the competition of different relaxation pathways and can be greatly enhanced when photoexcited carriers do not lose energy as heat, but instead transfer their excess energy into the production of additional electron–hole pairs through carrier–carrier scattering processes. Here we use optical pump–terahertz probe measurements to probe different pathways contributing to the ultrafast energy relaxation of photoexcited carriers. Our results indicate that carrier–carrier scattering is highly efficient, prevailing over optical-phonon emission in a wide range of photon wavelengths and leading to the production of secondary hot electrons originating from the conduction band. As hot electrons in graphene can drive currents, multiple hot-carrier generation makes graphene a promising material for highly efficient broadband extraction of light energy into electronic degrees of freedom, enabling high-efficiency optoelectronic applications.
