Dr. Stanislaw Szpak and Dr. Pamela Mosier-Boss are electrochemists who in 1989 worked on developing energy-dense batteries at the Navy’s SPAWAR Systems Center in San Diego, California.
After the announcement by Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons, Szpak thought to try to initiate the reaction using a technique called co-deposition, and with great success. Co-deposition became the basis for Navy SPAWAR LENR research spanning over two-decades, resulting in the detection of excess heat, nuclear products, transmutations and multiple thermal runaways.
Following Nature’s Documents Stan Szpak LENR Co-deposition looks at what this method entailed, and how it became a reproducible experiment, for some, and what difficulties were faced by others.
Video is taken from interviews conducted in January 2015 with Dr. Stanislaw Szpak, Dr. Frank Gordon, and Dr. Melvin Miles.
The former-Navy scientists and engineers discuss their experience with cold fusion through co-deposition. Descriptions of how it works include an astounding chronicle of multiple thermal runaways using palladium metal and regular light-water. Thermal runaways can occur as a cell generates too much heat uncontrollably, melting the metal or sometimes exploding.
Co-deposition allowed unusual cathode geometries. Together with an infrared camera, Drs. Szpak and Mosier-Boss produced thermal imaging of “hot spots” which sparkle on and off as reactions occur, showing short-lived reactions in specific locations of the metallic surface.

Newsletter No. 019 – March 2015
The experiments planned with the reactor ITAbetatron pulsed with nanoscale powders, etc. Proceed in the best way! We all hope to succeed fully in this wonderful company! In this case we will finally have a new source of energy: clean, inexhaustible and economic, that creates the conditions for the welfare and prosperity of the peoples of the Earth, and at the same time to combat global warming, and therefore the dangerous climate changes, thus also saving the planet Earth.

“Spring, the first day”:
Hydrobetatron preliminarily performs up to 2:26 ratio in hydrogen vs reference run in argon, with electrically pulsed powders at Open Power Lab.
The contribution of Involved heat transfer phenomena is under analysis.
The complete set of runs will be discussed at ICCF19.

Are you an ‘entrepreneur-minded?
Then you may want to consider the possibility of investing on our promising research to find a new source of energy: clean, inexhaustible and economic.
Seize this opportunity now!

We will evaluate and, if necessary, we will fix an appointment to know us better and learn the details of the collaboration.
LENRG Youtube Channel has uploaded video shorts of the recent meeting in Oxford bringing together scientists, advocates, planners, and designers to envision and create a living environment based on clean Low Energy Nanoscale Reactions (LENR) energy technology.
LENR Cities is the focal point for the assemblage. LENR-Cities “accelerates market transformation and fosters LENR demand” by being a “bridge between VC/investors and those who develop LENR tech and product innovations”.
From their website:
Low Energy Nanoscale Reactions research will become a new field of engineering capable of addressing world challenges regarding Energy with a global impact. It is therefore clear that any LENR project intersects with multiple interests and issues which create the conditions for their failure. To address this main issue, it is necessary to enable industries and actors to concurrently integrate their industry into LENR industry, that is to say, to define open capabilities to securely enable any player to come into the game.
LENR-Cities, a Swiss organization, is leading the LENRG Ecosystem. Each project is run independently, with its own objectives, but contributes to the achievement of the overall project which itself is reinforcing everyone’s capabilities and interest to support the overall project. We are now building the core of the Ecosystem with a small group of key scientists, investors and industrialists, individuals and public or private organizations. The objective of this group is to be the catalyst of the whole project.
The video documents how just two minutes before the test reactor shell shattered, MFMP members Bob Greenyer, Ryan Hunt, and Alan Goldwater erected a “blast shield” to protect against any debris should a failure occur.
“Yes, cause at some point we’re going to have some molten lithium in there and I’m not sure I want that – or even vapor lithium – coming at us, so perhaps we should retire to a different distance?” Bob Greenyer can be heard saying on the video.
After successfully testing a new sealing method for simple reactor core manufacture, MFMP team members next experiment passes through the “Parkhomov threshold”, that is temperatures above which Dr. Alexander Parkhomov reported first seeing ‘excess heat’. As a precaution, the team erect a blast shield… and not a moment too soon!
NOTE: Look at the area of the ceramic outer tube just after the event.
As Francesco Celani says – Safety, Safety, Safety.
The video shows the effectiveness of Aluminum ferrule based swageloks sealing the 1/4 inch reactor tube to high pressures. Simple, fast, cheap, repeatable
It is not yet clear what exactly happened at this time. The test of the compression sealant was successful, and the endcap was secure. A surge in temperature is then followed by the reactor shattering.
“At least we know we have pressure.” says Ryan Hunt, just seconds after the pop.
The event concluded a week of scheduled tests, broadcast live on their Youtube channel.
Bob Greenyer and Alan Goldwater are here to help execute a rapid series of live experiments. We have assembled all the test equipment we had hoped for. Now it is time to see how they work together. We have an ambitious plan with several tests, but the thermal assessment is the top priority. In the event that we run into some serious snags, be prepared for the plans to change and tests to be dropped.
Team assembles, Test equipment set up, integrated, and prepared. Lots of reading the manuals!
Starting at 9 am local time, or so.
Test 1: Calibration with Thermocouples, Optris camera, and Williamson Pyrometer.
Test 2: Fat coil dog bone with internal heat source
Test 3: Assessment of Alan’s calibrated alumina temperature sources
Test 4: Powder Test in sealed Alumina tube
Tests 5, 6, 7, …: Powder Test in sealed Alumina tube
Iterate and try different ideas while we have the team assembled
Test X: High Temp Inconel Heater Dogbone Calibration
Other tests as deemed worthy

Team Leaves, wrap up
Discuss and write up
Whatever happened in the test today, it is a reminder that anybody contemplating experiments in energy must proceed with the utmost caution.
Practice science responsibly and gather experienced partners for safe and successful results.
The Live Open Science of MFMP utilizes the digital space to communicate and collaborate on a global. The research is focused on discovering the nature of a source of dense, ultra-clean energy from a plentiful fuel.
What no institution in the U.S. dare do, the MFMP collective puts together on fly specks.
