Dr. Ahern is a physicist with a PhD from MIT whose academic work focused on exploring BCS-theory and superconductivity. In 2012, he issued an in-depth report on nano-scale cold fusion for the Electric Power Research Institute. Earlier this year the open-source Martin Fleischman Memorial Project added Brian to their global-coalition of researchers and experimentalists who are working to bring an open-source cold fusion solution to the world. He was also a featured lecturer at this year’s 2014 MIT LENR Colloquium – an annual event hosted by Drs. Mitchell Schwarz & Peter Hagelstein. His presentation focused on the relationship between excess heat and nano-magnetism. An outline of our dialogue can be referenced below:
0.min-10.min: Brian’s thesis on high-temperature superconductors; Brian’s interest in LENR; Keith Johnson; technical problems inherent to high-temperature superconductors; distorted electron orbitals and cooperative oscillatory modes; Stanislaw Ulam’s model of non-linear anharmonic oscillators

Thanks John. Great interview. I found this in the abstract of the article “Hydrogen-like excitons in a high magnetic field” by M.A. Liberman (Department of Physics, Uppsala University).
“…the hydrogen behaves like a weakly nonideal Bose gas…”
Just thought I’d pass this on. I was wondering if this might shed some light on what’s happening in Mizuno’s deuterium gas experiment.
Here’s a long talk on “Condensation of excitons and polaritons”.
The phase transitions remind me of the Hutchison effect. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnBdhsXl088
In 1989/1990, during the year following the announcement of cold fusion, the Belgium Ministry of defence sequestered a series of advanced gas loaded LENR patents and all related research papers.
What was the state of U.S. and Belgium relations at this time?
Why did the Belgium Ministry of Defence sequester advanced LENR/LANR patents?
What role, if any, did the U.S. DoD have in this decision?
What affect would these early LENR patents and related scientific papers have had if they had reached mainstream news or the cold fusion scientific community in 1989?
How do these early Belgian cold fusion patents compare to advanced LENR patents emerging from U.S. SPAWAR, DARPA, NASA and U.S. corporate LENR research laboratories?
Elements of an electromagnetic/electrostatic effect are found in these advanced, gas loaded, plasma, LENR/LANR Belgium patents. Absolutely fascinating.
Gas Plasma Electrostatic/Electromagnetic Environment
“nuclear fusion of fusionable matter with the aid of a solid substance whereon matter can be adsorbed electrostatically…”
“adsorption and/or absorption of of the fusionable takes place at room temperature or at higher temperature, either or not in the presence of a non-electrolyt, e.g. a liquid dialectic material…”
“no use is made of a liquid electrolyt…”
“a first embodiment… fusionable matter is provided in the form of a plasma in a space containing at least one electrode, in which space positive fusionable ions of the plasma are adsorbed and/or absorbed on or in an electrode which consists of or contains a metal or metal alloy that can absorb hydrogen and which electrode is negatively charged while an other electrode is at positive potential…”
“plasma is an ionized gas that contains practically equal amounts of ions and electrons and is susceptible to a magnetic field…”
“a second embodiment… fusionable matter is provided in the form of a gas in a space containing at least two electrodes at opposite potential, wherein the negatively charged electrode(s) are capable of adsorbing and/or absorbing said fusionable matter, and wherein the potential difference between said electrodes is high enough to ionize the fusionable matter and to bring its positive ions to fusion…”
“the ionization to form a plasma can be carried out in a space which stands in connection with the fusion reactor or between electrodes in the reactor…’
“also lithium and/or borine may be put in plasma form…”
“plasma is in general but not necessarily formed at low pressure…”
“fusionable matter is deuterium or tritium”
“hydrogen may be present in atomic form…”
“the voltage difference between the electrodes may be higher than is usual in electrolysis, e.g. in the range 40 to 10 4 volt…”
“voltage may be applied continuously or pulsating with therefor known apparatus, e.g. direct current generator…”
Vapour Depositation Nano Materials
“the electrode-material at which the nuclear reaction takes place consists preferably of a metal absorbing hydrogen exothermally. The absorption increases with gas pressure…”
“examples of such metals are: titanium, zirconium, vanadium, niobium, tantalum and palladium. Iron is possibly likewise useful at higher temperature, e.g. 800 celsius”
“said metals are present on a carrier material, e.g. are present in vapour deposited form. For example, the carrier material is carbon or another metal that is thermally and electrically a good conductor and optionally is slowing down high speed neutrons or is an absorber therefor…”
“electrode can be porous, e.g. is a sintered metal or can be in the form of separate particles particles having a diameter of e.g. 0.01 to 10 cm…”
We aren’t smart enough to understand why they did this but I’m sure it’s the love that they have for us that motivates them.
Thanks for mentioning contents of Belgian patent BE1002780 wherein the broadening of proton orbitals is suggested as the reason for overcoming Coulomb repulsion enabling fusion. Have a look at my commentary to Dr. Edmund Storms at the end of the article “Belgian LANR Patents” on the former e-Cat Site. Greetings.
Have a look at a very interesting “hot fusion” technique known as “Ultra dense fusion in liquid lithium” under GOOGLE. Also worthwile to consult is”Hidetsugu Ikegami “for that technique and Swedish Defence FMV.
Although the reactions Ikegami discovered were the same strong nuclear force reactions seen in tokamak reactors the reaction take place at much lower temperatures than thermonuclear fusion.
Chemonuclear Fusion is a type of low energy nuclear fusion that has been shown to produce energy in two experiments. Aneutronic nuclear fusion can provide unlimited electric power without polluting the environment with radioactive waste and greenhouse emissions. Chemonuclear processes in small dense white dwarf stars accelerate the rate of nuclear fusion and cause them to explode in spectacular supernova explosions.
The mission of the Chemonuclear Fusion Project is to raise awareness of this new and vitally important source of environmentally clean energy and to promote research and development.
The Chemonuclear Fusion Project is soliciting volunteers to help our crowdfunding and educational campaigns. Our crowdfunding webpages will soon be up and running. We want people to post to discussion groups and help us get the word out that aneutronic chemonuclear fusion might be the radiation free way to power the world if we can get the funding to build and test reactors.
Artists can help us design T-shirts, mugs, and promotional items to sell and give away to our contributors. Writers to write promotional materials and post to web forums are also wanted. Video producers and professional and amateur scientists who can help the public understand the concepts of chemonuclear fusion are encouraged to contact us also.
