CENTAUR: DOE Funded Project for ‘Basic Research in Low-Energy Nuclear Science’

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Thu, 12/07/2018 - 14:45

Thanks to John Koskela for posting the following from CENTAUR, the Center for Excellence in Nuclear Training And University-based Research.

Link is here: https://centaur.tamu.edu/

The Center for Excellence in Nuclear Training And University-based Research (CENTAUR) is a multi-institutional effort led by Texas A&M University and supported by a five-year, $10 million Stewardship Science Academic Alliances (SSAA) grant from the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA). CENTAUR will pursue basic research in low-energy nuclear science through experimental, theoretical, and technical programs using accelerators at Texas A&M’s Cyclotron Institute and Florida State University’s John D. Fox Superconducting Linear Accelerator Laboratory as well as facilities at the other participating institutions. Existing collaborations between scientists at Texas A&M and the NNSA national laboratories—including Los Alamos National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory—will be incorporated into center programs and expanded to involve scientists from all partner institutions, which include Florida State, Washington University in St. Louis, the University of Washington, Louisiana State University and the University of Notre Dame.

When they state they are pursuing basic research in “low-energy nuclear science”, it does sound like LENR might be covered, but it’s not clear if they really are interested in it. This is a grant from the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration, which normally deals with traditional nuclear fission.

Here’s a DOE press release from July 5, 2018 about the project:

https://www.energy.gov/nnsa/articles/nnsa-awards-10-million-cooperative-agreement-texas-am-university

WASHINGTON – The Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) has designated a new Center of Excellence to be led by Texas A&M University in the area of Low Energy Nuclear Science as part of the Stewardship Science Academic Alliances (SSAA) Program.

“These grants are instrumental in developing the next generation of scientists in areas of relevance to the stockpile stewardship mission,” said Dr. Kathleen Alexander, Assistant Deputy Administrator for Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation in NNSA’s Office of Defense Programs.

Texas A&M University will receive $10 million over five years to manage the Center for Excellence in Nuclear Training and University-based Research (CENTAUR), which will measure high-impact reaction observables and make reaction theory more robust.

CENTAUR, led by Dr. Sherry Yennello, will combine experimental and theoretical initiatives to measure relevant nuclear structure and reaction properties with a large focus on the use of radioactive beams and/or targets. Academic partner institutions include: Florida State University, Washington University, the University of Washington, and Louisiana State University.

Launched in 2002, the SSAA program supports areas of fundamental research and development that are relevant to NNSA’s stockpile stewardship mission while helping to recruit the next generation of highly-trained technical scientists and engineers for the Nuclear Security Enterprise.

Radio Waves Experiment (Sean)

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Mon, 09/07/2018 - 09:56

I thought it would be useful to start a new thread with these two comments by Sean from the recent Electric Universe Thread here, who has shared some details from an experiment he has done.

1. Just did an experiment. I took a normal 3 inch long x 3/8″ Dia.Steel spring an using a voltmeter set to Millivolts and proceeded to do the following. Across the spring length = 0 mv. across the magnet = 0 mv. Placed insulation tape between magnet and spring = .8 mv. I think that its picking up background radiation. So the next experiment was to measure my mobile VHF/UHF ham radio antenna indoors. I hooked up the PL259 plug directly to to voltmeter and I measured 3.7 mv.

2. Well I think I have found the missing ingredient to that You-Tube video. It is something that you cannot see. RADIO WAVES. I set up the experiment again and keyed up my Baofeng hand held ham radio a few feet away and up went the voltage to 2.3 Volts. That’s enough to light a LED. I remember when I had CB sets back in the 70’s, You could tape a Neon light to the antenna for fun. When you keyed up the neon would light up extremely bright especially if you place it near the loading coil at center mast. (It got very hot also).

Electric Universe Conference in UK to Feature SAFIRE Team Leader Childs

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Fri, 06/07/2018 - 14:45

Thanks to Steve Taylor for posting the following about an upcoming presentation about the Electric Universe project. Many readers will recall that the SAFIRE (Stellar Atmospheric Function In Regulation Experiment) project is connected with the Electric Universe project. The SAFIRE team is carrying out experiments to test the ‘Electric Sun’ theory.

In a presentation made last year the SAFIRE team reported about an anomalous heat event that occurred inside their experimental reaction chambers in which a tungsten probe used to measure reaction temperatures was vaporized when the input power at the time was only 182 W.  The presentation can be seen on this video:

Steve Taylor posted this:

There is a presentation coming July 7 thru 11 in Somerset, UK. Montgomery Childs [SAFIRE team leader] will be one of the speakers. It is part of the Electric Universe Reconnect 2018 conference. I do hope they will tell what progress has been since August last year. Maybe this should be highlighted in a current post.

Ionizing Radiation from E-Cats beyond Background has ‘Never’ Been Detected

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Thu, 05/07/2018 - 04:56

Here’s an interesting exchange on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today regarding the issue of whether the E-Cat produces ionizing radiation.

Prof July 4, 2018 at 7:30 PM
Dr Andrea Rossi

There is a buzz in the internet that your Ecat SK could have issues related to the radiations it could emit.
Are you worried of this issue? Could your presentaton of the industrialized Ecat SK be jeopardized by it?

Cheers

Prof

Andrea Rossi July 4, 2018 at 9:20 PM
Prof:
We constantly measure all the radiations emitted by the Ecat. The emissions have also been thoroughly measured by the specialized officers of the Healthcare Office of Florida, that has a team of specialized agents for this specific purpose, as well as from Physics Professors specialized in such measurement and NEVER has been measured an excess of ionizing radiations beyond the background. This also is an indirect confirmation of the theoretical intuition Gullstrom and I are studying upon ( Carl-Oscar Gullstrom, nuclear physic from the University of Uppsala- you can find his lecture on Youtube whose link is also in our website http://www.ecat.com, or Google ” Youtube video Carl Oscar Gullstrom theoretical lecture of Ecat presentation Stockholm November 24 2017 ”

Warm Regards,
A.R.

In some of the public tests that have taken place over the years, there have been radiation measurements taken close to the E-Cats, and no radiation beyond background has been reported. This comment is the first time that I can recall Andrea Rossi stating that officers from the Healthcare Office of Florida have measured radiation from the E-Cat. It would be interesting to read a report from those tests.

Rossi: E-Cat SK Test a ‘Great’ Success

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Sun, 01/07/2018 - 14:22

Andrea Rossi had been reporting that a very important test of the the higher-powered E-Cat SK was to take place at the end of June and yesterday on the Journal of Nuclear Physics he reported that he was extremely pleased. Here are a few of his comments:

“I just finished now the test with the SK. I am trembling for the emotion. Probably we will present it. We made enormous progress in the last several weeks. The test has been not good. The test has been great.”

“We tested a version very close to the industrialization and it did not show any trouble in a long test, besides I had confirmation of the validity of an intuition that simplify remarkably the SK system.”

“We will probably present both the QX and the SK”

We have come to learn that this kind of report is quite typical of Rossi — he never rests trying to improve his products and he regularly tests new ‘intuitions’ that he think can improve and/or simplify his products. He is still talking about two products: the QX and the SK, but I wonder if the new progress on the SK will start to take all his attention.

There’s another thing to point out in his recent comments — Gerald McEk asked him if he still thought he could deliver an industrial E-Cat plant by the end of this year; Rossi’s response was “no”. So his timeline projections are slipping somewhat — which I had somewhat expected — since just a few weeks ago he said he hoped to have products delivered to customers before the end of 2018.

Rossi: Dealing with the ‘Highest Echelons in the Industrial World’

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Fri, 29/06/2018 - 12:13

Andrea Rossi was asked on the Journal of Nuclear Physics yesterday about who he has been talking to since he announced that Leonardo was ready to make deals to sell heat.

Wilber Averhart
June 28, 2018 at 10:27 AM
Dear Andrea,
I suppose you are already in advanced status with the development of agreements to supply heat, after your announcement that the deals are open. Curiosity: which is the average dimensions of the companies you are mainly engaged with?
Godspeed,
W.

Andrea Rossi
June 28, 2018 at 6:08 PM
Wilber Averhart:
At the moment we are dealing only with the highest echelons of the industrial world.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

UPDATE: Here’s a new Q&A from the JONP today:

CC
June 29, 2018 at 2:13 AM
Dr Rossi:
You said that the customers you are dealing with belong to the highest industrial echelons: are they all listed in a stock exchange?
Cheers
CC

Andrea Rossi
June 29, 2018 at 6:58 AM
CC:
Yes.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

As I wrote yesterday regarding the need for commercial LENR in order for it to be taken seriously, if Rossi really has what he says he has, then the “highest echelons” of industry are naturally going to be very interested in what he has, because the E-Cat represents a real revolution in energy production and an opportunity for cost savings and cleaner energy that has not been available previously.

If the E-Cat is for real, and really is ready for commercialization, potential customers are going to be looking very carefully at whether they should adopt it, since the potential savings offer companies such a competitive advantage — and conversely, a competitive disadvantage if they don’t adopt it, and their competitors do.

LENR Needs Commercial Success

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Thu, 28/06/2018 - 12:27

From various reports from around the world, such as the recent ICCF-21 conference in Colorado, we know that there is a dedicated group of researchers who are working hard in the LENR field, and are having some experimental success demonstrating that LENR is a valid field of scientific research. This has actually been the case for many years now, but it is still basically a neglected field, still struggling for respectability after the tarnishing that took place soon after 1989.

Based on publicly available information, I don’t see any prospects for LENR entering the commercial space in the near future beyond Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat. There may be some dark horses working behind the scenes, but one would expect that if Leonardo is really getting ready for a commercial launch, that anyone else ready to produce marketable products would be gearing up to fight for customers.

So my perception is that if Rossi comes through with a working commercial E-Cat within the next year or so, the field will get a real boost in new interest, and if he gets even some initial traction in terms of customers signing up for his “heat as a service” business plan, then one would expect that established players in the energy field will sit up and take notice, and start to try and figure out how Rossi is doing what he is doing.

Rossi has been very careful to provide as little help to potential competitors as possible in terms of providing information about how the E-Cat works, but he must realize that success for him could unleash a huge amount of R&D into the LENR field from new players who will surely think that if a lone inventor can pull off commercial LENR, then it is not beyond the reach of organizations with vastly more resources than Rossi has had. Thus, Rossi’s first-to-market advantage (assuming he makes it) may be challenged quite quickly.

However, if Rossi doesn’t come through, I don’t expect a great deal of change in the field in the near term. Simply stated, LENR needs to be commercialized for it to take off. Without commercial products, or at least strong experimental evidence of commercial-grade energy production, I would expect there will continue to be low levels of interest in LENR and we’ll continue on the present levels of activity.

Rossi: “Now Retrofitting” A Gas Turbine with the E-Cat SK

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Sun, 24/06/2018 - 00:09

From comments on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, and in my recent interview with Andrea Rossi, it is clear that in recent weeks he has turned his attention from the E-Cat QX to the E-Cat SK.

Although he hasn’t gone into a great deal of detail, he has been talking about using the 100 kW E-Cat SK to drive what he is calling a “modified gas engine” which can generate electricity.

Here is question and answer with Iggy Dalrymple from the Journal of Nuclear Physics on the topic:

Iggy Dalrymple
June 23, 2018 at 2:05 PM
Dear Dr Rossi,
As you know, large electrical utility companies use gas turbines for their peak load time of the day or during extreme temperature weather. They use hydro, nuclear, or coal for their base load.

Once you have perfected the mating of your SK with a gas turbine, do you anticipate:
1- Retrofitting the SK to existing utility owned gas turbines?
2- Or must the turbines be custom built to accommodate the SK?
Regards,
Iggy

Andrea Rossi
June 23, 2018 at 5:28 PM
Iggy Dalrymple:
Now we are retrofitting.
Warm Regards
A.R.

In an earlier Q&A with Raffaele Bongo Rossi indicated that they were having success with this approach.

Raffaele Bongo
June 22, 2018 at 3:22 PM
Hello A. Rossi

The coupling of a reactor with a turbine seems very promising for the electric propulsion of land vehicles
Can you tell us how many Quark SK 100s have you installed in this reactor that you are testing and have you ever reached a COP greater than 1?
Thank you for your answers
All my support for your team
Best regards

Andrea Rossi
June 22, 2018 at 4:27 PM
Raffaele Bongo:
We have installed one reactor and the COP has been >1.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

So as usual, Andrea Rossi is not content to rest on his earlier technological achievements. He says he has developed the QX to a point where he thinks it is ready for manufacturing, he has another avenue to pursue. In another question on the JONP, I asked him if he was satisfied with the control he has over the SK so far he answered, “yes: the next week we will make another crucial test.”

It will be interesting to find out more about that test and how it went.

Where the E-Cat ‘Heat as a Service’ Might Make Sense

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Thu, 21/06/2018 - 05:12

An interesting post by Tom Kaminski on this thread:

In March, 2016 the local IEEE Section toured the central heating/cooling plant for the University of Wisconsin, Madison campus. It produces roughly 300 MW of steam and could also use steam-turbine driven chillers for chilled water. The site was recently converted from coal to natural gas and the boilers could also burn fuel oil. Because the natural gas supply was on an interruptible schedule, they stored about US$ 4 million worth of fuel oil. On one particularly cold January weekend, they used most of the fuel oil up when the extreme cold required the utility to cut off their gas supply to maintain . supplies for city residents. This newsletter (mid way down the page) has some information and pictures:

http://ieee-msn.truenym.net/newsletters/IEEE-2016-04/

My point is, the “backup” heating supply is often required for commercial customers to get the best utility fuel rates. Rossi’s “must have their own backup” plan is not going to be that restrictive. If he provides the capital equipment, the commercial users will have only a small cost (facility mods and space for the equipment) and if is saves operating costs for fuel, it will be advantageous.

Supplying 300MW of heat, however with the current Rossi design might take a bit of work…

I will add a comment of my own here. I was talking recently with a former director of a paper mill who told me that during his working life there the company installed a natural gas Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system that provided all the heat and power to the mill, taking it off-grid. In addition to the natural gas source was, as Tom describes above, a fuel oil backup system stored in large tanks that could be used when there was an interruption in the gas supply.

Of course this made me wonder whether an E-Cat could be used instead of natural gas to provide the heat needed to run such a CHP system, keeping the natural gas and/or oil as a backup. I actually asked Andrea Rossi about this in my recent interview, and he said that Leonardo would be providing only heat, it would be up to the customer to decide what they wanted to do with that heat.

Assuming the E-Cat works well, if it’s simply a matter of replacing one heat source with another, without extensive engineering involved to do that, a company might be inclined to give the E-Cat a try, if the savings are attractive enough.

Rossi Solicits Invitation Requests to ‘USA, East Coast’ E-Cat Presentation

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Mon, 18/06/2018 - 12:09

If anyone is interested in attending the anticipated presentation of Andrea Rossi/Leonardo’s industrial E-Cat, Rossi made the following post today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics in response to a question about the event.

“Anonymous June 17, 2018 at 7:15 PM
Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
Where and when you presume will be the presentation of the industrialized Ecat ready for the heat sale?
Will be any of the readers of this blog to attend?

Andrea Rossi June 18, 2018 at 3:41 AM
Anonymous:
I presume and hope between the end of December and the end of January.
It will be in the USA, East Coast.
All the Reafers that desire to attend can send a request of invitation to: info@leonardocorp1996.com
Obviously not all can be invited, but I will select the ones that I deem will have more merit, based on their sustain and suggestions.
The attendance will be free.
Warm Regards, A.R. “

It sounds now like it will take place in early in 2019. It’s not clear yet whether it will be at a customer’s factory or in some other location. I think Rossi wants to make a big splash with this presentation, and I am sure that he will be making invitations to media representatives to help raise awareness about the product launch, so they may have priority. I hope that there will be enough places for plenty of people to attend. I hope to be there myself and it would be nice to meet up with other ECW readers there.

Aerospace Corporation’s Nickel-Hydrogen LENR Research Paper Published

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Fri, 15/06/2018 - 15:41

One of the presentations at the recent ICCF-21 conference was by Edward J. Beiting of the Aerospace Corporation, a California nonprofit research and development center. The title of his presentation was “Investigation of the Nickel-Hydrogen Anomalous Heat Effect”

Dr Beiting’s full report has now been uploaded to the LENR-CANR.org website here:

http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/BeitingEinvestigat.pdf

Here is an excerpt from the abstract of the presentation from the ICCF-21 summary posted here on the Cold Fusion Community website.

An apparatus was built that comprised identical test and a reference heated cells. These thermally isolated cells each contained two thermocouples and a 10 cm3 volume of ZrO2NiPd particles. Calibration functions to infer thermal power from temperature were created by electrically heating the filled cells with known powers when they were either evacuated or pressurized with 1 bar of N2. During the experimental trial, the test cell was pressurized with hydrogen and the control cell was pressurized with nitrogen. After conditioning the cells, both were heated to near 300°C for a period of 1000 hours (40 days). During this period, the test cell registered 7.5% more power (approximately 1 W) than the input power. The control cell measured approximately 0.05 W of excess power. The error in the excess power measurement was ±0.05 W.

Risks and Rewards For Businesses to Adopt The E-Cat

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Thu, 14/06/2018 - 11:54

The most interesting piece of information, for me, to come out of my recent interview with Andrea Rossi was his answer to my question of how much money a customer will save by switching from their current energy source to the E-Cat. Rossi said the actual saving would depend on the specific situation, but said that the saving would be between 30 and 50 per cent.

That is the first time we have had even a ballpark number about how much the E-Cat would cost. It will be interesting to see how tempting that number will be to industrial customers. I would imagine that any industry, or any individual for that matter, would take notice if they were told that they could save up to half of their energy bill.

In many cases energy savings proposals come with an upfront cost, such as investing in a solar system, or a higher-efficiency furnace/AC unit. But Leonardo’s proposition apparently does not require any initial investment for equipment, since Leonardo will install the E-Cat hardware and will manage the E-Cats remotely at no charge.

There will be disruption required for the customer, which may come at some cost in time, space, and labor. They will have to find space for the E-Cat apparatus, and they will have to make modifications to their plants to incorporate an E-Cat heat source, and that might not be a trivial undertaking. They will also have to maintain a backup heat source and have it on continual standby in case the E-Cat goes offline — so that adds complexity.

Also, so far, Leonardo has no commercial track record. LENR is unknown to most people, and certainly not considered a real alternative energy source at this point. The customer cannot be sure how reliable the E-Cat will be. There is the risk that the E-Cat won’t work well for whatever reason, and the time and effort put into installation may not be worth it.

On the other hand, if the E-Cat system does work well, there are risks for customers not to give the E-Cat a chance. In industries where energy is significant cost of doing business, a savings of 30-50 percent could give a business an competitive advantage in terms of overall cost savings, allowing a business to provide products and/or services at lower costs to the end user.

There’s also the clean energy factor to consider. Again, if the E-Cat does work well, and it does not produce any pollution, it will be seen as an efficient way for a company to be environmentally responsible, which can count for a great deal in today’s economic and political environment.

It think it will be interesting to see whether the savings offered by Leonardo will be attractive enough for customers take them up on their E-Cat proposition.

Interview with Andrea Rossi on E-Cat Commercialization

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Tue, 12/06/2018 - 10:47

I had the opportunity to interview Andrea Rossi on June 11 2018 about the latest developments in his efforts to commercialize the E-Cat. You can listen to the interview at the YouTube link below.

A few of the main points covered:

The 100 kW E-Cat SK is still under development, and will undergo tests of months in length before they decide whether it is ready for commercialization.

The 1kW E-Cat QX is ‘almost’ ready. They will make a final decision by the end of June. Leonardo’s goal is to deliver E-Cats by the end of this year. Rossi stated that a public presentation may be delayed until early 2019 due to logistical difficulties of having a presentation in mid-winter during the holiday season when weather might be problematic.

Andrea Rossi stated that the first commercial efforts will be to provided heat for private industry. While technologically the E-Cat could be used to generate electricity in power stations, Rossi stated there are regulatory issues that make that a hard arena to break into.

The price that customers will pay for heat will depend on each specific situation, but Rossi states that it will be at between a 30 to 50 per cent discount on a customer’s current fuel costs.

Rossi has 22 people working with him as part of his team.

Alexander Parkhomov Reports on Just-completed 225 Day Test

E-Cat World / LENR / Cold Fusion - Sun, 10/06/2018 - 11:52

I have received the following report from Dr. Alexander Parkhomov.

I propose to acquaint visitors of e-catworld.com with this information:

On May 23, 2018, the nickel-hydrogen reactor developed by A.Parkhomov, launched on October 10, 2017, was switched off at the experimental design laboratory “KIT”. Hydrogen-saturated nickel weighing 1.2 g was used as fuel. The completion of the work is associated with a gradual reduction of excess heat release as a result of exhaustion of the energy resource of fuel. The reactor operated continuously for 225 days, generating 4200 MJ of thermal energy in excess of the consumed electricity (2.2 MeV per nickel atom). The maximum power of heat release is 1400 W at 380 W consumption (COP = 3,7), average 575 W at 355 W consumption (COP = 1,6).

Best wishes,
Alexander

A long-awaited scientific breakthrough has been made in Russian and world nuclear physics. For the first time, a controlled nuclear fusion reaction is realized at room temperature

In the laboratory, it was possible to start, regulate and stop the nuclear fusion reaction in deuterated polycrystalline titanium. This became possible only after the discovery of a new type of physical wave, the existence of which was predicted by the great Soviet physicist L.D. Landau in the 1930s of the last century and received experimental confirmation of Alla Kornilova a few years ago.

The final scientific publication on the results of the cycle of experiments is presented in the May issue of the ournal “Engineering Physics”:j

The first photo is of an experiment soon to be run and consists of a LION CRYSTAL containing 7 Tubes. The central Tube is a LION 3 and is the source Driving the energy release. A LION STARLIGHT CORE consists of 7 such CRYSTALS.

These are water cooled and can be fitted with Thermocouples and control Tubes. In the larger STARLIGHT CORES the cooling pipes will run inside of the ceramic Tubes and will probably be swapped for Stainless steel.
Early days- working out experimental ideas, but with a very clear goal.

THANKS to BOB for all his encouragement and MFMP.

From the description:

“In particular, the invention relates to a power generating apparatus having a reaction vessel or a cell for generating thermal energy by an exothermic reaction. As an exothermic reaction, a quantum condensate is carried out on a metal grid assisted electrodynamic process with hydrogen in particular. The participation of weak and strong interaction is not excluded. Preferably, a LENR is performed as an exothermic reaction, it stands for “low energy nuclear reaction”. This name has historical reasons, in the end, low-energy reaction products are produced by a fusion of nucleons.”
