A research group at Chalmers [University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden] has developed a specially designed molecule that can store solar energy for up to 18 years. Now, the next step is to develop the technology to a larger scale, hoping for an energy consumption without emissions.
“Molecular solar thermal energy storage” is a circular energy system that absorbs energy from sunlight using a solar collector consisting of a concave reflector with a tube in the middle. It acts like a satellite dish by focusing the sun’s rays to a point where liquid that chemically stores energy is led through a tube. The fluid is then transported to a warehouse where energy can be stored for up to 18 years. This is possible thanks to a specially designed molecule consisting of coal, hydrogen and nitrogen.
[. . .]
When using the stored solar energy, a catalyst is used that allows the molecule to release the stored energy and, therefore, is heated. At the same time, the molecule returns to the molecular composition it had before it was exposed to sunshine.
A more technical description of this process is in this paper published by Chalmers.
Thanks to Bob Greenyer for the heads up about a live experiment that Alan Goldwater of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project is carrying out. He is testing the recipe and instructions from LENR Forum poster ‘JohnyFive’ which is claimed to produce particle emissions from an electrolytic setup.
Wigner Crystal Discovered in ‘Magic-angle’ Graphene
Tue, 09/25/2018 – 1:39pm
by Siv Schwink, University of Illinois
Recently, a team of scientists led by Pablo Jarillo-Herrero at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) created a huge stir in the field of condensed matter physics when they showed that two sheets of graphene twisted at specific angles — dubbed “magic-angle” graphene — display two emergent phases of matter not observed in single sheets of graphene.
Graphene is a honeycomb lattice of carbon atoms — it’s essentially a one-atom-thick layer of graphite, the dark, flaky material in pencils.
In two articles published online in March 2018 and appearing in the April 5, 2018 issue of the journal Nature, the team reported the twisted bilayer graphene (tBLG) exhibits an unconventional superconducting phase, akin to what is seen in high-temperature superconducting cuprates.
This phase is obtained by doping (injecting electrons into) an insulating state, which the MIT group interpreted as an example of Mott insulation. A joint team of scientists at UCSB and Columbia University has reproduced the remarkable MIT results.
The discovery holds promise for the eventual development of room-temperature superconductors and a host of other equally groundbreaking applications.
A professor at the University of Plymouth (UK) will receive a $1.3 million grant from DARPA (United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) to study ‘Quantized Inertia’ which theorizes that light can be converted into thrust.
Dr. Mike McCullough, Lecturer in Geomatics, will lead a team that will develop a fully predictive theory of how matter interacts with light, and then conduct experiments to test the theory. Dr. McCullough thinks it could be possible to develop spacecraft that require no propellant, just a source of electricity.
I am not sure whether this has anything in common with the EmDrive theory, but the goals of propellant-less propulsion certainly sound similar.
An article from the University of Plymouth’s website provides more details here:
[Oriani, R.A. and J.C. Fisher. Energetic Charged Particles Produced in the Gas Phase by Electrolysis. in Tenth International Conference on Cold Fusion. 2003. Cambridge, MA: LENR-CANR.org. This paper was presented atthe 10th International Conference on Cold Fusion.]
It showed that a LENR active agent was lifted in the steam coming from an electrolysis LENR experiment and catalyzed a LENR cluster reaction producing loads of alpha emissions in a spherical distribution eliminating from a central pinpoint location. This reaction was shown using a plastic detector.
This experiment shows what is termed “Strange radiation” and IMHO, the LENR active agent is an Ultra dense material…most likely lithium.
IMHO, the ultra dense lithium is resting on or is trapped in the surface fibers of the paper. It is generating continuous LENR reactions. Holmild sees this behavior in his experiments. This LENR activity of this ultra dense molecule can be increased if an ultraviolet light source is placed on that ultra dense matter (UDM). Any strong UV light source might increase the LENR activity of the UDM. Holmlid says that his florescent lab lights activate his UDM into increase activity.
Shower of etch pits on a detector chip supported in air under a nickel cathode. The width of the image is approximately 2mm. Arrows indicate the directions in which charged particles impinged on the chip. The electrolyte was Li2SO4 in H2O. (The virgin chip was etched before beginning the experiment to reveal pre-existing particle tracks. During the following etch they grew to twice the diameter of the experimental pits and can be distinguished by their large size.)
The pattern of particle emissions from a central point indicate that a singular causative agent is the source of the radiation.
Since he posted this recipe, he says he has tried it with H2O instead of D2O, and wrote:
“H2O is working very well too! No need for D2O. Today I measured 5 times of background. Half life was refined to be rather 15 – 20 minutes.”
Alan Goldwater of the MFMP has stated that he is preparing to attempt a replication using this recipe.
1. Cathode: Get approx. 10x5x5 mm flake of Titanium sponge, preferably 99,9% purity – Sigma Aldrich, Merck or Alfa Aesar, ThermoFisher will be fine for sure. But any similarly sized Ti sponge will work.
2. Anode: Get Nickel Wire around 26AWG. 99% purity. It must be just wire! Very likely size ratio between Cathode, Anode is key factor. Anode will oxidize quickly, but it is not an issue.
3. Get D2O, preferably 99,9% purity
4. Get Lithium metal
5. Use nickel wire for attaching Titanium sponge at the top, so that nickel wire will be not immersed in D2O mixture.
6. Get LiOD from Li + D2O reaction, 100mg Li in 5 – 10ml D2O.
7. Use stabilized DC power supply (Cathode -, Anode +) and power it, let it run at around 0.2W – 0.5W for over 3 days. Too high current will destroy the anode. For this reason smaller current (50mA) is recommended at least from the beginning. If current is too high the D2O solution will evaporate quickly too.
8. Right from the start put a printing paper above the cell so that vapor is trapped by it.
9. Get A Pancake GM detector with thin mica window – preferably Russian Si-8B, Si-14B or similar.
After roughly 3 days the water solution will likely become completely black. From that moment you will likely obtain an elevated radiation level. My rough estimate is that in 10 hours one could be able to measure something interesting, not sooner.
Measured radiation is of unknown type and source yet but likely it is soft Beta with energy under 20keV. Observed behavior is that the cell is filled with radioactive particles floating in the air, rather accumulated inside. They are likely escaping the cell through the top opening – for this reason a surface that can trap them is required in order to measure them.
Folded sheet of white printing 80g paper was cut for a proper size and used with success as cell cover. This paper can be then moved and placed directly at the mica window which will instantly show elevated radiation if the paper was covering the cell for a sufficiently long time. I recommend at least 3 hours exposition.
No air flow is recommended during measurement as the radioactive particles seems to be affected even by air.
Once the cell started to produce radioactive products it will do so as long as the cell is powered.
For unknown reason the paper show higher radiation readings from the opposite side (upper) than the bottom that is in direct contact with a vapor.
Alternatively, grab the detector and place it in close vicinity (< 10mm) to the paper directly above the cell. So that the paper is still lying at the cell.
Floating particles seems to be reacting with all nearby materials. This is then producing radiation. If such particle reacts once it will disappear = You need to produce new in the cell. This could mean that there is no half life, but local condition does not allow to store such particles for longer time.
Observed Half-Life is within 20 – 40 minutes. This mean that even after the cell is powered off the products will be still there.
Changing Cathode or Anode will require next conditioning that might take another 3 days.
When electrolysis is turned off the water will change from black back to crystal clear with white residue from LiOD. This will happen within few minutes.
Strange, soft but unhealthy air smell is noticed after prolonged run. This could lead to at least lungs irritation – not healthy for sure. Wear a proper gas mask and protective clothings.
Do not try it at Home. Even that radiation level is rather insignificant it is of unknown type and source yet. Because you are unable to measure it with your detector it does not mean it is not there. Be aware that at least D,O,D2O is released from the cell!

Here are a couple of quotes from members of the Deneum team featured on the video
Sergey Tsvetkov, Technology
“The story began in 1989 in March when a conference between two chemists and physicists, Fleischmann and Pons was held. They said they obtained nuclear fusion as a result of electrolysis of palladium and heavy water. We’ve checked their development and have seen good results from deuterium and titanium. That is, excess heat in extremely large amounts. As a result we confirmed that these nuclear reactions occur at low temperatures. In principle they could be used to produce at first, thermal, and then electric energy.”
Sergey Godin, Research.
“I am responsible for correctness of measurement in this project. I have conducted experiments demonstrating that the installation is practical, environmentally friendly and does not contain any harmful radiation. Some scientists say that this is impossible, or the implementation of such an installation is tough because it is impossible to overcome the coulomb barrier. It is true, but nature has many clever ways in which it does it. It is possible when we are faced with a phenomenon that is not yet been fully explored. And experimenters in this field are now ahead of the theorists, just like the Wright Brothers who already conducted commercial flights before the theory of wing-lift was written. We are also pioneers who are trying to create a commercial sample based on this phenomenon.”
TALLINN, Estonia, August 29, 2018 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — TALLINN, Estonia, August 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —
Deneum, a company aiming to revolutionize global energy industry with the nuclear fusion Power Station, announced that it has successfully proved the feasibility hypothesis via its laboratory unit during the private demonstration. Deneum also concluded $ 1M during the private round first stage. Offering global market the Philosopher’s stone of energy generation based on interaction between Titanium and Deuterium, Deneum has successfully concluded the first private demonstration of the Power Station laboratory unit. The demonstration held in Deneum R&D laboratory in Tallinn implied the Power Station launch and main operating mode showcase. All the indicators including temperature fluctuation, pressure, vacuum density and others were measured and visually represented online via the public proprietary software provided by independent vendor.
“The main indicator of an appropriate interaction of the active body components within the Deneum Power Station is successful maintenance of a certain installation mode, in which amount of energy needed for launch, once consumed creates a thin level of resonance that implicates a self-sustaining reaction between titanium hydride and deuterium. This reaction is exothermic with a large amount of excess heat, which is then to some extent converted into electricity and partly used “as is” in the form of thermal energy. We were able to achieve and maintain this effect during the demonstration. This makes it 63 successful feasibility tests in a row with this one carefully measured and documented, – comments Dmitry Samoylovskikh, Deneum CEO & founder. – We’re witnessing the largest particle physics breakthrough of the century, and Deneum team is very glad to make it happen”.
The reaction produced by the active body components is self-sustaining, which means Power Station keeps on working without any further intervention once launched. Deuterium and Titanium worth $20 installed into the Power Station can maintain a housing area of 100 sq. meters for up to 1 year with no need for recharge or additional service. This is an unprecedented level of energy efficiency beyond what any of the existing sources may offer, including traditional nuclear energy. The energy of Deneum Power Station is yet eco-friendly, renewable and radically cheap.
Deneum team has successfully concluded the first stage of the ICO private round having raised $ 1M. The funding will be re-invested into further R&D and Power Station G3 prototype development as well as deployment of Deneum own production line manufacturing the Power Station active body main components. Deneum team is planning to conclude the second stage of the private sale round by the end of September aiming at $ 2M hard cap. The total funding to be raised during all stages of the ICO is estimated at $ 90M.
The following post has been submitted by Axil Axil
Let’s look at the cause of LENR in action in the video above. This video shows the FUEL that the LENR developer has generated. That fuel is micro-diamonds implanted in a nickel substrate infused with deuterium. In general, all successful LENR fuels is based on the penetration of one of the hydrogen isotopes either protium or deuterium into the crystal structure of some solid material with a rigid lattice crystal structure. The list of materials that can support the generation of LENR fuel is palladium, diamond, titanium, and nickel. The function of these substrate materials is to compress the hydrogen isotope to a level sufficiently high enough to force the hydrogen to assume the super dense form. There is evidence that other elements and compounds can be compressed to such a high pressure by the substrate’s lattice that these various elements and compounds will compress into their ultra dense form. These elements and compounds include lithium and water, but ultra dense copper might have been generated in the proton 21 experiments. The compression force in the proton 21 experiment is provided by the shock wave of a high powered electrical discharge.
These ultra dense molecules lay dormant inside the fuel until they are activated through the infusion of some form of photonic energy combination be it either heat, light… visible and/or ultraviolet, or RF.
The ultra dense nano-particle that forms takes the form of a thin one dimensional nano wire with the protons of the hydrogen in the center of the wire and the electrons forming a cover(spin wave) around that center. This structure is produced by the superconductor property called the Meissner effect. This nanowire is a superconductor in which virtually no power is lost by its surface electron layers.
The surface of the nanowire acts as an optical bottle in which light is captured and confined. The photons of the light combine with the electrons in the electron cloud around the outside of the superconducting nanowire to form a polariton condensate. This is a special type of plasmoid that does not lose power. This lack of power loss comes from the superconducting nature of the electrons on the surface of the nanowire. The polariton condensate is a fluid of light that holds onto light and does not let light escape. This plasmoid is a very special one in that it is a black hole for light: light goes in, but it cannot come out.
This nanowire is what Ken Shoulders has called a black EVO.
Getting into more detail, this ball of confined light is highly organized and is comprised of two independent currents (rings) of confined light separated into their photon’s handedness (chirality) forming two counter-rotating light currents: a right spinning current and a left handed spinning current of light. This soliton is sometimes called ball lighting.
These counter rotating light currents produce magnetic rotating magnetic flux tubes that spin at the speed of light. These tubes are also called worm holes. One magnetic flux tube comes from the right handed spinning light current and the other from the left handed spinning light current.
In summary so far, a black EVO is a black hole of light that produces a spinning magnetic flux tube ring shaped like a O. The experimental observation of this structure is explained in the referenced video of the LION reactor meltdown as seen above.
This is what Bob Greenyer is seeing produce the double dot marks in the ash and experimental photographs of the LENR reactor meltdown.
When a dipole black EVO is exposed to a high voltage spark, the index of refraction of the space time in which the light currents are circulating becomes imaginary and the two rotating light rings combine into a single ring. This disturbance in space time produces an EVO monopole. This EVO has only one flux tube, but that tube is a very powerful one, since it consolidates all the energy of the dipole flux tube system into a single consolidated monopole flux tube system.
The dipole EVO usually moves around in a symmetrical fashion because its flux tubes are balanced and connected into a continuous magnetic ring. But when the monopole EVO moves, it hops around and leaves tracks like a rabbit since it has a single flux tube that whips around and causes the nanowire to hop in a random fashion. This is seen in the rabbit tracks that this monopole produces called strange radiation.
Now that we know how the Black EVO is formed, how it moves, and what its structure is in detail, we can explain how it escapes the lattice of the substrate that formed it. In the upcoming posts we will see how the black EVO moves around inside that substrate and escapes from it. This explanation is offered in the next post with the aid of the referenced video as well as others as a record of MFMP experimental research. We will also see SEM micrographs of active LENR fuel and observe the tracks of the EVOs as the EVO exits the fuel and transmute matter as the EVO travels away from the fuel particles.
Thanks to Bob Greenyer for sharing about the following.
There had been a poster on the LENR Forum who goes by the nickname of johnyfive (he has not revealed his identity) who claims that he has been able to produce radiation signals clearly above background regularly using an experimental setup. His posting history can be found here: https://www.lenr-forum.com/user/2744-johnyfive/
Yesterday on the LENR Forum he has posted a recipe that he claims is “almost guaranteed to work”.
1. Cathode: Get approx. 10x5x5 mm flake of Titanium sponge, preferably 99,9% purity – Sigma Aldrich or Alfa Aeasar will be fine for sure
2. Anode: Get Nickel Wire around 26AWG. 99% purity
3. Get D2O, preferably 99,9% purity
4. Get Lithium metal
5. Use nickel wire for attaching Titanium sponge at the top, so that nickel wire will be not immersed in D2O mixture.
6. Get LiOD from Li + D2O reaction, 100mg Li in 5ml D2O.
7. Use stabilized DC power supply (Cathode -, Anode +) and power it, let it run at around 0.5W for over 3 days.
8. Get a paper and put it above the cell so that vapor is trapped by it.
9. Get Pancake GM detector (I think Russian detectors are the best and cheap) and measure radiation of the paper after 3 days.
Almost guaranteed to work. This is just the beginning so that if you really want, you can replicate it now. No hesitation, no tricks.”
We can’t know if it’s the real thing unless someone tries to replicate it. So for replicators interested in testing out a recipe, here’s something to work with.
