What is Going on With Mizuno Replication Efforts?

This post is a question rather than a report. When Tadihiko Mizuno and Jed Rothwell published their paper “Increased Excess Heat from Palladium Deposited on Nickel” in June of this year, they also included detailed instructions on how they carried out their experiment, and were encouraging experimenters to try and replicate what was reported.

So far, the only report I have seen from anyone who has tried a replication has been from H Zhang: (https://www.lenr-canr.org/acrobat/ZhangHreproducti.pdf) who reported achieving 9.6 W of excess heat, which was a lot less than Mizuno himself reported (up to 3 kW of excess heat).

So I’m just wondering if anyone knows about other work going on in this area, or could give any status updates. The Mizuno paper seems to be a good starting point for people to try and get a positive LENR results, but there hasn’t been as much reported as I had hoped.

I realize it has only been a few months since the paper was published, and there must be a lot of specialized equipment and setup required to run these experiments, so maybe my hopes for quick results and reports are unrealistic.

If anyone could provide news, updates, information, etc. I am sure there would be a lot of people who would be interested and appreciative.

Report: British Engineer Deveops Scrap Aluminum Powered Fuel Cell

Thanks to Bob Greenyer for posting this link to an article from the Daily Mail about a British engineer named Trevor Jackson who has signed a deal with a company called Austin Electric to start making fuel cells which run from scrap aluminum.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7592485/Father-eight-invents-electric-car-battery-drivers-1-500-miles-without-charging-it.htmlhttps://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7592485/Father-eight-invents-electric-car-battery-drivers-1-500-miles-without-charging-it.htmlhttps://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7592485/Father-eight-invents-electric-car-battery-drivers-1-500-miles-without-charging-it.html

From the article:

Jackson gave me a demonstration. He cut off the top of a can of Coke, drained it, filled it with the electrolyte, and clipped electrodes to it, powering a small propeller. ‘The energy in this will keep the propeller spinning for a month,’ he said. ‘You can see what this technology could do in a vehicle if you scale it up.’ Following last week’s deal with Austin, that is exactly what is about to happen. Three immediate projects are about to go into production.

MFMP Live Document: “ULTR – Affordable ultrasonic driven transmutation?”

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project has published a new live document on its website titled “ULTR – Affordable ultrasonic driven transmutation?”

http://www.quantumheat.org/index.php/en/home/mfmp-blog/552-ultr-affordable-ultrasonic-driven-transmutation

The goal of this ULTR project is to try and determine if it is possible “induce transmutation using an
off-the-shelf affordable ultrasonic cleaner”. The document explains that Alan Goldwater noticed that when examining a sample of indium that he had cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner he uses for cleaning SEMP parts, it showed unexpected marks that could possibly be potential signs of elemental changes.

Images and data are shown in the document, along with a description of the apparatus used and testing methods employed.

MFMP to Test With Indium (Bob Greenyer)

The following commment was posted by Bob Greeyer.

Last week, we purchased more of the claimed 99.995% pure 0.3mm indium foil and today, Alan Goldwater is planning to run a repeat of the 3min exposure he did in a $40 off-the shelf ultrasonic cleaner in the vicinity of the Th doped NaI scintillator. The plan is to run a number of tests, such as:

Indium foil in

1. DI water only
2. DI water + Micro-90 (EDTA containing) cleaning fluid + DI water rinse
3. As 2 but with 5% D2O enhanced H2O to simulate at least the water conditions of CsCl test where Indium was exposed for 10m in Omasa Vibrator

Whilst these RC motors will likely cavitate, we cant be sure of what they are made of. The other thing is that Indium, as I have made public a number of times now, was chosen by me, based on my emerging understanding for a number of very specific reasons.

1. From our experience in 2012 (Borosilicate glass in Celani Cells), understanding of Piantelli’s use of Macor from Jan 2015 (Contains Boron) and Pakhomov’s 400MJ reactor (said to contain Boron in core), we already knew Boron was very important (at ICCF22, David Nagal talked of using Boron / Pd composite)

2. Shiskin’s team, after 9 years of research, has shown that Boron 10, the isotope of Boron that can absorb neutrons, can be used to detect ‘String Vortex Solitons’ (SVS), an EVO form that is suspected to be at least partially made of condensed low energy neutrinos. SVS may be black / dark EVOs as they exhibit the behaviour of moving through even metals and carrying ions with them

3. Boron 10 has a thermal neutron absorber cross section of 200, but is only 19.6% of natural boron.

4. Indium 115, which is 95.72% of Indium, has thermal neutron absorber cross section of 100

5. A free neutron decays with a life of 15m into to a Proton, Electron and an anti-neutrino

6. Some consider a neutrino to be a Majorana particle, that is, it is it’s own anti-particle and it can change between the two

7. If so, then SVS is not only going to be stopped in the 115In, but it will deliver low energy neutrinos that will stimulate the normally 30,000 x length of universe half-life of 115In causing the release of electrons.

8. Electrons will feed the Black EVO, re-exciting it into a white EVO state.

9. This will cause the EVO to start eating Indium atoms

10. It was thought that Indium atoms, being large, would be torn apart into rock forming or common crust abundance elements inside an a free EVO which was not too heavily driven

11. Massive energy release would result

12. Indium was chosen because it very soft, the thinking being that any effect would be recorded in large detail because there would be little physical resistance to either the EVO, gas production or kinetics

13. Indium was chosen also because it has fair conductivity

14. Indium was also chosen because it is a solid at room temperature but has a very low melting point of 156.6ºC

15. Indium was chosen because it is resistant to oxidation (burning) or forming nitrides, in fact it is the softest metal that is not an alkali metal and alkali metals like to oxidate or form nitrides in air really easily, this was key to my choosing it as a witness material

16. Indium is in the same group as Aluminium, and knowing how Al is so massively affected in Hutchison effect (and also Ohsawa, and potentially a LENR fuel as two 27Al fuse to 54Fe) there was an expectation that there could be a range of other factors that could make it highly susceptible under the influence of EVOs.

The above is NOT an exhaustive list, but it is enough to show that Indium was not randomly chosen for testing, in fact, the first Indium I bought for specific testing was ordered on Wed, 31st Oct 2018, 11 months ago and long before Sho reached out to MFMP to test Dr. Ohmasa’s technology. The first Boron was bought in 2017. What you see above is a little extension of where my thinking was in early 2017.

That Indium foil appeared to so massively to be affected by both the Ohmasa Vibrator (10mins in 5% D2O enriched DI water with CsCl), the Ohmasa Gas (few seconds in free air), and apparently 3 minutes in Alan Goldwater’s $40 off-the-shelf ultrasonic cleaner (with EDTA cleaner and DI water), at his suggestion, was quite satisfying after having these thoughts stuck in my head for so long, further tests may validate this 3-way finding, and if so, we really have something to wake up the world to the reality of the technology and its potential.

Christos Stremmenos Dies

The following was posted by Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today.

Andrea Rossi

Dear Readers:
Today Nicos Stremmenos, son of Cristos Stremmenos, has informed me of the fact that his father has passed away today.
I want to say that Cristos is one of the most honest, genial, sincere persons I ever met in my life.
A hero of the Greek resistance, a great Professor of Physics of the University of Bologna, Ambassador of Grece in Rome, I had the honour to make with him many very important experiments, in collaboration with Prof Sergio Focardi, who was his Dean and also a friend of him.
I am very sorry, I can’t deny my emotion in this moment.
I present to his wonderful family my deepest condolences,
Andrea Rossi

Christos Stremmenos was a Professor of Chemical Physics, University of Bologna (Ret.)and former Ambassador for Greece in Italy. He was one of the early supporters and proponents of the work of Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi. He subsequently helped with the formation of Defkalion Green Technologies.

Here is a video of him talking about cold fusion.

SEM Images of Titanium/OHMASA Gas Samples at the University of Wisconsin (Bob Greenyer)

Here are some comments from Bob Greenyer regarding SEM images Titanium/OHMASA Gas samples that he took at the University of Wisconsin.

University of Wisconsin, Madison confirmed findings of elemental distributions in unusual structures of which they had not observed before in their experience and had no ready explanation for.

The whiskers growing from the organic crystal-like structures were seen to have differing elements from the bulk which was confirmed to be pure Titanium with very little oxygen.

Additionally, it appeared that more may have grown since the last analysis by the MFMP. In addition, no Chrome was observed in whisker bases that were able to be analysed in the time available, which may mean that there was none in those particular ones looked at or that the chrome in them had progressed to Fe or Ni. Other elements indicated beyond Fe and Ni were As and Rb not indicated during MFMP testing.

They asked keenly if they could publish/share the images and data – I replied “of course, that is the point of open research, share wherever you want”.

They really were shocked – was a fascinating process to watch a group of people go from complete scepticism (with the usual masked sniggers in at least one case) to going ‘huh’ and putting on that confused, really intrigued face.

It really helped that I had had a few weeks with the sample, first looking on Nurugo within hours, sharing, then on the Digital optical microscope, then sharing, then on Alan Goldwater’s SEM for HOURS, then sharing – I could be sure of what was there and where. I was surprised to see that it appeared the number of whiskers had increased and the material may be synthesising heavier elements as time goes by – not only does the amorphous ‘crystal-ike’ pure Titanium structures look organic, they seam alive.
