Following Nature’s Documents Stan Szpak LENR Co-deposition

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.

Watch Stan Szpak LENR Co-deposition on the ColdFusionNow Youtube channel.

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. Infrared hot spot video is courtesy LENR-CANR Library.

  1. Interesting stuff thanks.
    Will Coldfusion now also be making videos of the upcoming ICCF?

    1. Cold Fusion Now! will not be attending the ICCF19 conference in Padua, Italy. But I am sure there will be plenty of people there making video. I hope the organizers have a plan to archive the whole historic conference!

  2. What a great story! And the interviews were equal to the story, Ruby. Great job capturing the essential pieces, even Dr Miles description of his early errors and the appreciation he had of Drs. Szpak’s and Boss’ insights and methods.

    1. To continue to follow whatever path the evidence leaves is the ideal of science. I’d say Melvin Miles exemplifies that fully. Thank you Bill!

  3. Many thanks Ruby, Wonderful to see the things that has been achieved regarding Cold fusion by the few people who have cared.
    Without Mr. Rossi and the Internet, those who gain from debunking and denying many important scientific subjects would still be keeping this World changing breakthrough behind closed doors.
    It is very apparent on other Websites that many more people are jumping on the bandwagon now it is considered reasonably safe and joining in the debates etc.
    But still the World waits while for example NASA plays games sending toy trucks to Mars and CERN chases the next ghost particle etc, all costing many billions.
    Let us hope that Cold Fusion now benefits everybody and is not just another way of channeling vast wealth to those few countries and people while much of the World suffers without the basics of existence.

    1. Thank you george. Many have suffered indeed, but that is soon over! Cold fusion exists and is operating today. We don’t yet have it in the stores, but it is only a matter of time. The changes that will occur are unimaginable. Looking out my window, and seeing the telephone pole wires, the power wires, all the electric charge wasted – that’s all gone with cold fusion. And the effects to be seen will change human mental imprints. It will be disruptive, but let’s get it over with ASAP!

  4. déjà vu
    At 1:09 I see “…0.05 M PdCL2 and 0.3 M LiCl onto a copper cathode..”.
    Could the following be happening in the light water experiment?

    Li(7) + p > 2 He(4) 17.3 MeV

    1. Alan, I do not know such things, but since it is palladium and regular H2O, how could Pd-D and Ni-H be that different?

      1. Well, in light water it would actually be Pd-H. So, they may not be that different but on second thought, I don’t think the lithium could actually plate out onto the cathode in an aqueous solution (although some might get trapped in the palladium).
        This brings up another thought:
        Perhaps an aprotic solvent like dimethylformamide (DMF) with PdCl2 and lithium hydroxide (LiOH) would work better.
        These are real sketchy thoughts. I really didn’t answer your question. I’ll have to get back to you later on this one.
