The researchers used advanced computer modeling techniques and diagnostic measurement devices honed at the Lab to solve a decades-old problem of distinguishing neutrons produced by thermonuclear reactions from ones produced...

Biberian, Elsevier Science Publishing Co. Inc., United States. And references therein Start off with a solution of PdCl2 and LiCl in D2O As current is applied, Pd is deposited on the cathode in the presence of evolving deuterium gas. The resulting deposit exhibits a highly expanded surface consisting of small spherical nodules (built in vacancies). Cyclic voltammetry and galvanostatic pulsing experiments indicate that, by using the co-deposition technique, a high degree of deuterium loading (with an...

    NASA’S NEW SHORTCUT TO FUSION POWER Lattice confinement fusion eliminates massive magnets and powerful lasers PHYSICISTS FIRST SUSPECTED more than a century ago that the fusing of hydrogen into helium powers the sun. It took researchers many years to unravel the secrets by which lighter elements are smashed together into heavier ones inside stars, releasing energy in the process. And scientists and engineers have continued to study the sun’s fusion process in hopes of one day using nuclear fusion to generate heat or electricity. But the prospect of meeting our energy needs this way remains elusive. The extraction of energy...

    Physicists in Japan have shown that "entirely end-bonded" multi-walled carbon nanotubes can superconduct at temperatures as high as 12 K, which is 30 times greater than for single-walled carbon nanotubes. The discovery has been made by a team led by Junji Haruyama of Aoyama Gakuin University in Kanagawa. The superconducting nanotubes could be used to study fundamental 1D quantum effects and also find practical applications in molecular quantum computing (Phys. Rev. Lett. 96 057001). Superconductivity is the complete absence of electrical resistance and is observed in certain materials when they are cooled below a superconducting transition temperature (Tc). Physicists agree...

    Inside JET's torus, with superimposed plasma. (UKAEA) Late last century, the Joint European Torus (JET) near Oxford, UK, churned out 22 megajoules of energy in what was, at the time, a record in fusion power. Now, experimental upgrades have brought the facility into line with the technology anticipated for a major international project, resulting in the production of nearly three times that amount of power. The advances are a major step forward for tokamak-based fusion, bringing us ever closer to a balance point where we can harvest a near endless stream of energy without the cost of polluting emissions or...

MIT physicists and colleagues have discovered the “secret sauce” behind some of the exotic properties of a new quantum material that has transfixed physicists due to those properties, which include superconductivity. Although theorists had predicted the reason for the unusual properties of the material, known as a kagome metal, this is the first time that the...
  • Correlation between nano-mechanical instabilities THz phonons, and sub-atomic particle emissions: Implications for geochemistry and electrolysis

    Carpinteri - Correlation between nano-mechanical instabilities THz phonons, and sub-atomic particle emissions: Implications for geochemistry and electrolysis Alberto Carpinteri1, 2 , Oscar Borla1 1 Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy 2Shantou University, Shantou, China ABSTRACT TeraHertz phonons are produced in solids and fluids by mechanical instabilities at the nano-scale (fracture and cavitation). They present a frequency that is close to the resonance frequency of the atomic lattices and an energy that is close to that of thermal neutrons. A series of fracture experiments on natural rocks and the systematic monitoring of seismic events have demonstrated that TeraHertz phonons are able...

  • Branching Ratios for LENR

    Branching Ratios for LENR David J. Nagel Branching ratios for nuclear reactions are significant for understanding their physics. They might also be practically useful. The relatively simple deuteron-deuteron fusion reaction has been heavily studied both before and after the 1989 beginning of the global study of LENR. The branching ratios for that reaction are very different for the high-energy (hot) fusion and low-energy (LENR) versions of deuteron fusion. The former are well known, but the latter are little known, even after one-third of a century of attention. This paper reviews the status of the study of branching ratios for...

  • Design and Operation of LENR Reactors

    Egeli - Design and Operation of Lenr Reactors George Egely Contrary to the general belief, LENR phenomenon is much richer than generally expected. Usually the electrochemical or hot nickel, hydrogen diffusion-based reactors are known. Most of the published test results are from this area. Even in this area there are less commonly known, smart reactor designs, like Matsumoto's flat bottom cathode, light water-based reactors, or Parkhomov's separate heater/diffusion chamber reactors. Some of these reactors are discussed. The other major group is the dust-based, oscillating plasma reactors. In fact, this is the most important, most frequent form of LENR in...
