This video features course co-teacher Dr. Mitchell Swartz speaking on the experimental research done by his company JET Energy as they develop the NANOR cell.
Demonstration of Excess Heat from a JET Energy NANOR at MIT [.pdf] is a report by the course co-teachers summarizing the NANOR’s excess heat results from last year.
From Cold Fusion Times:
Jan. 28, 2013 – On day 5, Dr. Mitchell Swartz continued with the substantial experimental proof for cold fusion (lattice assisted nuclear reactions). After discussion of the materials involved in the desired reactions, he surveyed the methods of calibration of heat producing reactions including the copious controls, time-integration, thermal waveform reconstruction, noise measurement and additional techniques, as well as those methods which are not accurate.
Many examples of excess heat generated by CF/LANR systems were shown, using aqueous nickel and palladium systems. Then using the Navier Stokes equation, he developed the flow equations for both “conventional” cold fusion and codeposition. Optimal operating point operation was shown to have the ability to determine the products, and how the OOP manifolds demonstrate that CF is a reproducible phenomenon, applicable to science and engineering.
He focused on the salient advantages of the LANR metamaterials with the PHUSOR®-type system being one example. Returning to the experimental results and engineering methods developed to control cold fusion, he surveyed “heat after death” and its control and useful application, and the use of CF/LANR systems to drive motors.

Jan. 29, 2013 – On day 6, Dr. Mitchell Swartz continued with the discussion of cold fusion (lattice assisted nuclear reactions) in aqueous systems, beginning with the near infra-red emissions from active LANR devices, and the use of CF to generate electricity. Problems in the feedback loop were discussed. Then the focus was on the new dry, preloaded nanomaterial CF/LANR materials.
After discussing their novel characteristics and electrical breakdown (avalanche) issues, and which electric drive regions actually generate excess energy, he presented the development of several types of the NANOR®-type CF electronic components. Using multiple ways of documenting the excess energy produced, he presented the results of the latest series of such devices, such as were shown at MIT over several months in the second series of open demonstrations of cold fusion by JET Energy, Inc.
With energy gains from 14 and greater, these electronic components, in conjunction with advanced driving circuits, were shown to have excess energy documented by temperature rise, heat flow, and calorimetry; heralding their revolutionary potential to change the energy landscape in circuits, distributed electrical power systems, artificial internal organs, propulsion systems, space travel, and more.

Good summary, thanks. It was interesting to learn in the class that Mitchell Swartz has made 7 series of NANORs which add up to a total of about 40 NANORS. They are of different sizes; the one in last year’s MIT demo was small because of safety reasons. Peter Hagelstein said MS has improved the NANOR by 3-5 times. One of them, from series 7, is reported to reach a COP of 80, and a COP of 40 is common.
It is reassuring to know CF is being approached from many angles, with Mitchell Swartz, Peter Hagelstein and their NANOR research being one of them. They are also quite transparent and are sharing their findings with the CF collective. They are also trying to understand the nuclear science behind CF, from which they get a lot of resistance because it is not what the text books teach about how atoms behave.
I am curious about the resistance at MIT. Many of us know Eugene Mallove became quite angry about it, and another researcher, after having his office looted of $25,000 dollars of videos and equipment, packed up and left. Peter Hagelstein is the last CF holdout at MIT.
He started the class with a warning that CF research can destroy your professional life and damage your personal one. He also stated when he first got involved in CF research he had no idea he would run up against so much resistance.
It’s great you were able to go, Barry.
The resistance to CF will not stand forever. I hear Hagelstein right after the warning about careers that he is getting calls for qualified people to be part of cold fusion projects.
Can you say anything about MIT students? I understand there were a few there attending, but then they had to take off. What was the response from the student community there?
Thanks for your attendance, Barry.
Unfortunately it doesn’t seem a lot of young students are interested in CF. When I look at internet statistics it seems the mean age group who are interested are around fifty-sixty. I wonder if it is because we grew up with the controversial story of CF.
Were there any women there?
Average of about 3 per class.
I saw 2 one day and 1 one day…
And MIT students, I would guess 2-3 one of the days.
I went week 2 and I suppose most people attended the first week judging from the pictures.
@ Barry, I did catch a few reports on the Nanor I will upload to my page later on http://www.drboblog.com But, correct me If Im wrong but did not Mitchell speak about “a bigger Nanor” he wanted to develop? Did you get that part?
Yeah, he mentioned the forty NANORs that he made were of different sizes for different experiments and they can be linked or scaled up. I think the issue at this point is expence. He’s hoping they will become cost effective in the future, giving the example of how much early computers cost.
Are there (is there) a comprehensive set of slides for the entire class / course?
No slide set has been released to us yet. There is only the .pdf analyzing the NANOR performance from the course last year:
Perhaps the kids never lived through any energy crunches.
There is a big one coming. Our civilization is built on cheap oil. When do you suppose that oil will be back to $4 a barrel again?
The shale oil aficionados might consider a dose of reality by listening to real oil men on “The Oil Drum.”
There are other reasons not to burn through our grandchildren’s inheritance.
Ridicule is the tribute paid to the genius by the mediocrities.
