Dr. Melvin Miles is the guest on the Cold Fusion Now! podcast with Ruby Carat episode 12. Dr. Miles is an electro-chemist and LENR experimentalist who in 1990 discovered a relationship between the heat production in cold fusion cells with the production of helium, confirming the nuclear nature of the elusive reaction.
He spent two years at Dixie College (now Dixie State University), then received a Bachelor’s degree at Brigham Young University and a Ph.D at the University of Utah in Physical Chemistry, minoring in Physics. Following his degree, he was awarded a NATO fellowship to work as a postdoc for one year with Dr. Heinz Gerischer in Munich, Germany.
Melvin Miles was a Navy electro-chemist specializing in batteries at the China Lake research lab in 1989 when the cold fusion announcement occurred. He had difficulty reproducing the Fleischmann-Pons Heat Effect – until September of 1989. He reported the result to the Department of Energy DoE, then writing a report on the phenomenon, yet the November 1989 DoE has Dr. Miles listed as a negative on reproduction, as they refused to change their record of his response. He went on to measure helium as a nuclear product from active cold fusion cells producing excess heat in 1990.
D. Miles has challenged the American Chemical Society’s The Journal of Physical Chemistry ban on publishing cold fusion papers by proposing several mainstream referees to review one of his papers.
He has also published a collection of Letters from Martin Fleischmann to Melvin Miles, documenting sixteen years of collaboration between himself and Martin Fleischmann, who along with Stanley Pons, discovered the Anomalous Excess Heat Effect known as cold fusion.
