Discrete Breathers: A New Mechanism of LENR Proposed (Vladimir Dubinko)

The following is a message from Dr. Vladimir Dubinko who made a presentation at the ICCF-19 conference in Padua titled “Quantum tunneling in breather nano-colliders” which presents a model which attempts to explain the apparent ubiquity of LENR in many systems. In his presentation he summarized:

“A new mechanism of LENR in solids is proposed, in which discrete breathers  play the role of a catalyzer via time-periodic closing of adjacent H/D atoms required for the tunneling through the Coulomb barrier via formation of CCS”

Dear Colleagues,

Bellow are the links to my recent paper on breather-induced catalysis of nuclear reactions, which I presented at Padova and a couple of earlier papers that shows significance of discrete breathers in chemical catalysis as well.

The main concept behind the math is that temperature (represented by phonons) is like people – there are plenty, but chaotic, and must be led by heroes, who can organize the people to make anything significant.  Breathers are heroes of the nano-world. They are very few (just like real heroes) but extremely significant.

Their energy is just 5-10 times higher than the mean energy of any atom, but it enters into the exponent – the most powerful mathematical function, and so the result of their action may be tens of orders of magnitude at the chemical scale, and hundreds (!) of orders of magnitude at the nuclear scale, where uncertainty principles come to play.

The non-linear community has been studying the mathematical properties of breathers for about 20 years, very similar to the LENR community. I believe that it’s high time to merge our efforts and to start a larger-scale search for discrete breathers in the world around us.

Welcome to the field and let’s keep in touch.

    Ground breaking !! ..I am impressed..

    It is an interesting theory, which may have something in common with the Nano Surface Plasmon Polaritrons which Axil promotes. Only, these Breathers act inside the lattice, whereas the SPP’s are at the surface. I wonder how Axil thinks about these Breathers.

    I spent quite a bit of time with the author at ICCF-19. As he speaks fluent Russian and English he made a great translator for Aleksander Parkhomov- as well as being charming company in his own right. Vladimir’s presentation made quite a big impact, despite the fact that it was on the last day – he was besieged by questioners afterwards, both while he was on the platform and on the floor afterwards. It’s a great shame that the acoustics in the hall were so tricksy, as you will notice on the video below.

    Important to point out that Vladimir is an experimental physicist first, and mathematician second. But in my opinion a very close second! He has pretty much devised some new math to explain everything in Qauntum Mechanical terms. I have let him know that his papers etc. are on here, and he may well respond to any questions posted in this space. Alan Smith

      The vortex nature of solitons and breathers are the same, they both produce anapole magnetic beams. The advantage that solitons have over breathers is that solitons greatly amplify the magnetic beam that the vortex projects. The increased tunneling that are seen with breathers comes from the magnetic EMF that they produce. This magnetic beam energizes the vacuum and this increases virtual particle activity and associated tunneling that virtual particles produce. In both cases particle production in an energized vacuum produces fusion.

      Systems that use breathers are those that produce static nuclear active sites like Piantelli and palladium cathode cracking(Ed Storms). The breather is nailed to a lattice imperfection or discontinuity through Anderson localization. A soliton can be formed dynamically based on nanoparticle aggregation.

        Axil, I was listening to an old interview with Eugene Mallove, and he mentioned the groundbreaking work of Paulo and Alexandra Correa, dubbed ‘Aetherometry.’ I can only begin to grasp the rough outlines of it, but I was wondering if you were familiar with it at all. I mention it because there seems to be some connection in light of your interest in the role of vacuum energy, which I gather the Correa’s refer to in their own nomenclature as ‘massfree energy.’ I wonder if there is a way to use their theory to describe your proposed mechanism for LENR?

        From http://www.encyclopedianomadica.org/English/atos.php:

        “Aetherometry has provided novel wave-synchronous and resonance-coherent, solidary particle-and- wave solutions for virtually all energy structures and interactions. Every energy flux is a flux of energy units, massbound or massfree. Each unit has the dimensions of energy, and coheres a particle function with a phase or external wave. It also establishes a synchronizing resonance between the group wave intrinsic to the particle and the external guide wave. The coupling of these two wave functions – that is intrinsic to every energy coupling between a particle and a field wave – is referred to as primary superimposition. Synchronism of energy flow is a property of the primary superimposition of waves, of the internal consistency of every energy unit. Basic endoreference systems are created by primary superimposition”

        “Wherever energy flows, particles, whether massbound or massfree, move in relative and absolute senses (molecular or quantum view of energy). And wherever particles move, resonant waves transmit them, propel them (subquantic view of energy). A particle is nothing but the undulatory transmission of a unit of linear momentum intrinsic to an energy flux.”


        They share some thoughts about cold fusion in the link below, though unfortunately do not take us the extra step of showing how their theory relates to their proposed pathways for cold fusion. They propose proton production is important, rather than neutron production. And they also talk about how gammas and neutrons will be produced except under certain conditions (though they don’t really specify what those are, beyond slowing down of protons…). In any event, they share with you the feeling that most cold fusion researchers are barking up the wrong theoretical tree:

          I am looking into the behavior of the LENR reaction and how it might be explained by a newly discovered and experimentally verified Quantum mechanical protocol called Quantum Energy Teleportation(QET). I will post about it soon and I hope that Ecat world will carry that post.

          To get a preview, I am looking into this paper


          If you or anybody else can figure it out, then I will be happy to hear about your understanding of this protocol and how it applies to LENR.

  • Alan Smith

    Yes, please post a link and I will let Vladimir know.

    The post has been submitted to Frank. Its up to him to let it through.

    The soliton is existing science.

    Here is a paper on vortex formation of polaritons.

    Here is the magnetic beam theory and experiment that shows a soliton as referenced in the about paper..

    Half-solitons in a polariton quantum fluid behave like magnetic monopoles


    Experiment is the true test of theory. If the experimenter has a picture of the soliton and the beam, then it is best to recheck your math.
