This according to Jim Dunn one of the worlds leading authorities on energy technology, was the most promising presentation at the MIT LENR Symposium, held a week ago (for the 25th anniversary of P/F announcement).
Although they only produced 75W of excess heat (from a 75-80W input), it is very promising for the field as it was repeatable and should be scalable to larger size reactors. During the presentation Mizuno was on a Skype call from Japan, with the paper presented by Hideki Yoshino, an investor in the project, and a very smart man.
Twenty-five out of 50 tests produced significant excess heat. During excess heat production, neutrons, gamma rays and x-rays were also observed in some cases. An additional 22 additional tests performed with the improved calorimetry. Sixteen of these tests produced excess heat.”
A common problem with most if not all LENR experiments is getting the consistency with reactions. This series of tests is proberbly ahead of the pack. It is a pleasant surprise to read this presentation and its professional open approach and methodologies used. This is a welcome contrast the three ring circus Rossi orchestrated over the last few years, casting a shadow on the legitimate researchers. Lucky for us more reports like this are now becoming available and widely accepted bringing some legitimacy to the science on LENR.
It may be some years before any of this reaches commercialization, or even if it is ever viable to do so. However with further experiments, a professional approach, a greater understanding will come about and possibly some secrets unlocked as to what is really going on.
The following is just a small excerpt from the full presentation. This is one of the better presentations and I strongly suggest should be downloaded in its original form which can be downloaded at :
Replicable Model for Controlled Nuclear Reaction using Metal Nanoparticles
Hideki Yoshino, Eijiro Igari, Tadahiko Mizuno: Hydrogen Engineering Application & Development Company
Purposes of this Report
1. Formalize a replicable CF methodology with Ni and D2 Gas: Derive a formula based on test results only using Ni nanoparticles as metal and D2 gas, which generated the best results.
2. Analyze the Gas Composition during the Test: Accurately analyzed the changes of gas composition during the test, which we believe hasn’t been reported before.
3. Find CF Reaction Kinetics: Aim to find the reaction kinetics.
Produced excess heat:
- Using Nickel Nano-particles and D2 gas
- For over 1 month
- Excess Heat = 75watt (COP = 1.9)
- Excess Energy = 108MJ
The composites of the gas in the reactor changed during the reactions.
- Gas of M/e=4： (D2+) decreased in the tests when excess heat was generated.
- Gas of M/e=3： (HD+ or T+ or 3He+) increased at thebeginning of the reaction and decreased later.
- Gas of M/e=2 (D+ or H2+) increased virtually consistently, inthe tests when excess heat was generated.
- In the tests when excess heat was NOT produced, the increase of gas M/e=2 (D+ or H2+) was only 50%.
Additional Research Required:
- Gas of M/e=3 (HD+ or T+ or 3He+) appears to be the intermediate product.→Gas analysis is required to identify.
- Gas of M/e=2 (12D or H2+) appears to be the final product.←This is inconsistent with the final product of fusion reactions, which is known to be 2 4He. Additional Research Required
- Neutron Emission
- γ-ray Emission
- Transmutation Material
