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.

IEEE Meeting on “LENR Phenomenon” well attended

The IEEE Meeting on “LENR Phenomena and Potential Applications” with Professor Peter Hagelstein and Dr. Louis DeChiaro was on Sept. 23 at Teradyne in North Reading, Massachusetts.

It was sponsored by the Boston Reliability Chapter and ESD Group (Electro-Static Discharge).

LENRIA attended and captured these photos.

“The meeting registration had reached capacity and online registration had been closed,” said Steve Katinsky. “There were about 62 pre-registered, and 52 in attendance.”

What’s the biggest secret today?

That the world is on the verge of receiving a next-generation nuclear power technology that offers human civilization a clean, green technological future for all of Earth.

As media theorist Marshall McLuhan wrote, “The biggest secrets are kept by public incredulity.”

Oh the reward for opening your mind.

Watch these videos of the 2014 Cold Fusion/LANR Colloquium at MIT held Friday through Sunday, March 21-23, and get ahead of the meme about to break out viral: there is a new energy science that’s now forming into a technology, and it’s called cold fusion.

cf-lanr-bannerThe Cold Fusion / LANR Colloquium at MIT was organized by Mitchell Swartz and Gayle Verner of JET Energy and held on the campus of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) March 21-23, 2014 on the 25th anniversary of the announcement of the discovery. LANR stands for Lattice-assisted nuclear reactions, and researchers from several countries met to brief each other on their latest results on generating excess heat and transmutations.

[watch] Peter Hagelstein Landscapes in cold fusion research

wake for cold fusion at MIT PFC MIT Professor Peter Hagelstein remembers the Wake for Cold Fusion held on June 26, 1989 at 4PM by the Plasma Fusion Center for the “death and demise” of the field.

“What’s your guys opinion about the Wake business?” he grins.

“Premature!” “Woke up!” shouts the audience.

On the 2014 CF/LANR Colloquium presentations, Hagelstein says “This has been one of the strongest and most interesting conferences in the field. I’m stunned at what’s gone on here at this meeting.”

“This was well beyond my wildest dreams; this was an astonishingly strong meeting, but the field is hanging on by a thread.”

“The current situation with respect to the scientific progress in the field, given the abysmal status … of an incredibly small number of resources, the progress has been fantastic under the most adverse conditions imaginable.”

According to Hagelstein, the Sidney Kimmel Institute of Nuclear Renaissance at the University of Missouri is the one “glimmer of light on the radar screen”. SKINR has full funding for staff and resources over a multi-year period.

On the closing day of the Colloquium, Hagelstein expressed thanks and appreciation to the scientists who’ve stayed in the field all these 25 years, and in an emotional tribute, honors the friends they’ve lost along the way.
