2019 LANR/CF Colloquium at MIT honors 30-years of breakthrough science

CMNS investigators and the science community will be celebrating the 30th-anniversary of the announcement of cold fusion at the LANR/CF Colloquium at MIT on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA on Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 24, 2019.

These colloquiua have been hosted for many years by Dr. Mitchell Swartz of  JET Energy Incorporated, Dr. Peter Hagelstein of the Energy Production and Energy Conversion Group at MIT, and Gayle Verner, also of JET Energy.

The focus is the science and engineering of successful Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reaction [LANR] systems, including the important roles of the lattice and material science issues, as well as electrophysics.

Dr. Swartz believes engineering, along with the benefits of teaching its principles, is vital for success of attaining active LANR systems.

He has previously demonstrated the importance of this with his engineered systems including his metamaterial high impedance aqueous PHUSOR®-type technology that was shown on the MIT campus in 2003 as part of  ICCF10, and, his dry preloaded NANOR®-type component technology demonstrated in 2012 at the Cold Fusion 101 IAP Course at MIT, which ran for 3 months thereafter.

“Where is there science without engineering?” he asks.

“When we first made ‘cat whiskers’ back in the 50s using galena (a mineral) and a perpendicular wire positioned on it to make a junction “diode” – that was considered high-tech.  Now look how far we’ve come with the engineering in that technology.” 

“Similarly,” says Dr. Swartz, “in this clean energy-production field, there is much data heralding that applied engineering has also improved results: including incremental power gain, total output power, and excess energy density which have all increased; supplemented by improving controls and many new diagnostics.”

“Research takes meticulous effort, taking the time to write it up, and if you’re lucky – submitting it and getting feedback. So that’s why we’re having a posters at the colloquium.”

Attendance to the Meeting requires pre-Registration. The room size for the Colloquium is space-limited, and due to this limited size, there will be no walk-ins.

Note that the DEADLINE for REGISTRATION is March 14th.

Winning LENR essay published in Navy magazine

A Navy essay contest has landed a LENR article with second prize and featured in the September 2018 issue of U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings magazine (members only content online –.pdf here).

 

Low Energy Nuclear Reactions: A Potential New Source of Energy to Facilitate Emergent/Disruptive Technologies [.pdf] by M.Ravnitzky was the second place winner in The Emerging & Disruptive Technologies Essay Contest sponsored by the U.S. Naval Institute, cosponsored with Leidos Corporation.

He is also the Editor of Steven Krivit’s three volumes on the history of LENR, with its unfortunate repudiation of the name “cold fusion”, largely by belief in a specific theoretical model of the reaction focusing on electro-weak interactions. Sadly, the idea is yet unconfirmed, and just one of a half-dozen contenders for theoretical models, none of which can name a recipe to create and scale the reaction.

Nevertheless, this winning essay makes a strong case to the Navy advocating for research in LENR technology. The U.S. Navy adopted nuclear power early on submarines, and currently needs safe and clean solutions to power generation, just like everybody else.

Cold Fusion Now! podcast with ISCMNS Chief Exec William Collis

March, 2018 — The Cold Fusion Now! podcast presents William Collis, the Chief Executive of the International Society for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science, the association that serves cold fusion/LENR scientific researchers globally.

William has a degree in Biochemistry from the University of Oxford and is an expert in atomic weights. After a career in embedded software, his passion for nuclear physics led him to investigate the theoretical aspects of the LENR reaction.

He is part of the original group that founded the International Society for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science http://www.iscmns.org/ in 2003 to organize the global group of researchers with conferences https://www.iccf21.com/, a journal http://www.iscmns.org/CMNS/CMNS.htm, and scientific paper archive http://lenr-canr.org/.

William Collis talks with Ruby about the plans for the Society, and where experimental LENR research should target to bring a theoretical model into focus.

Edmund Storms HYDROTON A Model of Cold Fusion

Ruby Carat and the Cold Fusion Now! collective have released a new video documentary, this time tackling cold fusion theory with Edmund Storms HYDROTON A Model of Cold Fusion.

The 28-minute science special continues where the book The Explanation of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction left off. It features Dr. Edmund Storms describing his theory of the cold fusion/LENR reaction that focuses on the unusual form of hydrogen that can form in the nano-spaces of materials.

Nano-cracks in materials will have a high negative-charge along the walls of the space, allowing positively-charged hydrogen nuclei to be closer than they normally could.

Subject to resonance, the hypothesis proposes a linear array of hydrogen nuclei and electrons in the nano-crack that can engage in a “slow fusion” process, whereby the smaller bits of mass turn to energy by releasing coherent photons.

If true, the mechanism would be an extension of conventional nuclear models which only describes fusion in a hot plasma, where nuclei collide violently to fuse.

The action is animated by artist Jasen Chambers who modeled all the isotopes of hydrogen in the unique LENR process.

Ruby Carat has had multiple interviews with Dr. Storms since 2011, most recently in the offices of Cold Fusion Now! in Eureka, California, US. That video composite describes the Nano-gap Hydroton Model and its development.

Hypotheses of the Nano-gap Hydroton model are currently being tested for confirmation.

2017 LENRIA Calendar


http://www.infinite-energy.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=9

Back cover
Just out of the box and more jam-packed than ever before! The The Industrial Association for LENR finally released their 2017 LENRIA Calendar and this year’s effort is the best yet!

January date page
Every square centimeter of space educates and fascinates with the facts and figures of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science (CMNS). As full disclosure, I myself Ruby Carat worked on this very calendar, together with LENRIA’s Steve Katinsky, who produced a fabulous visual directory of the scientific field.

Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project represents open science for all humanity
Featuring an impressive network of global researchers working to unlock the promise of Nano-Nuclear Reactions, as the 2016 SPAWAR report described them and is quoted in the calendar, one-after-another, the pages reveal the sheer number of people working to find a solution to our global resource needs – using only bits of metals and ultra-clean hydrogen from water. The last several years have witnessed an increasing rate of interest in the science, as well as the technology.

Working together, the CMNS scientists profiled in the 2017 LENRIA Calendar show the world what cooperation beyond borders looks like. Photos from the recent 20th International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science (ICCF 20) held in Sendai, Japan along with a satellite conference in Xiamen, China, have experimentalists and theorists from every continent represented.

I still have mine on my refrigerator.
As a calendar there’s little room to write your appointments, as the date spaces collect the wisdom and knowledge of the field today with quotes, historical facts, and an occasional equation to elevate the fun. It’s more art than contemporary date book, more science almanac than nostalgic paper calendar.

Last year’s 2016 LENRIA Calendar was a huge tool for advocates, wowing newcomers to the field with its lavish tech photos, showing some well-funded, and scientifically-successful ventures. This year, the elite of scientific research see themselves as a cohesive community, one united in purpose: a clean energy revolution.

A technology eludes engineers and a theoretical model still awaits community confirmation, but the research is coming closer than ever to narrowing-down the criteria for success. After 28 years of effort, designs are finding ways to extract value from the effects, which once understood, will point the way to a green technological future for all of life kind, on Earth and beyond. With ultra-clean, energy-dense power from the hydrogen in water, we have the choice to re-make our planet without the imaginary borders and imaginary disputes, but the greatest collaborative global project ever conceived.
