CERN To Host Seminar on “The Anomalous Heat Effect on D/H loaded Palladium”

I have just received information about a seminar that will be held at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland on October 14, 2015 from 14:30 to 15:30 titled “The Anomalous Heat Effect on D/H loaded Palladium”.

There will be three speakers at the seminar: Graham Hubler of The Sidney Kimmel Institute for Nuclear Renaissance (SKINR) at the University of Missouri, Vittore Violante of ENEA (Italian energy research institute), and Juliana Schell of CERN

Here’s a link to a description of the event from CENR:

It’s interesting to see that CERN itself is doing some research into the ‘Anomalous Heat Effect’ (some people prefer this term to LENR or cold fusion). Here’s a summary of their findings to date from the above description:

“The third part of the presentation will review our recent preliminary in-situ PAC measurements performed at the SSP labs at ISOLDE during the electrolysis in 0.1 M LiOH or LiOD for 181Hf implanted Pd cathodes at the BONIS – HISKP Bonn separator.

“The data for LiOD electrolyte show anomalous, variable high frequency electric field gradient (EFG) components that appear / disappear near specific loading ratio of D/Pd that is not evident for LiOH electrolyte. This high frequency component does not appear in static samples so it may be attributed to the dynamics of D loading at the 30 nm implantation depth of the Hf. Details of the data analysis and possible explanations will be discussed, as well as possible complementary experiments to further elucidate the findings. “

    October 14th, CERN AHE (presumably, Saint-Genis-Pouilly on the French/Swiss Border)

    then, a quick trip across France to:

    October 15th -16th, 11th International Workshop on Anomalies in Hydrogen Loaded Metals, Airbus, Toulouse, France

    Alas, can’t go, but I hear the South of France is very nice this time of year… 🙂

    Yeah, but it didn’t help them understand or predict LENR. In fact, instead of helping, their assumptions mislead us for a quarter of a century. They thought it was nonsense.

  • Alan DeAngelis

    Because CERN was so off the mark in their understanding of LENR in 1989, I find myself wondering about what else they may have missed. I think the F&P affair has open up a huge can of worms.

    Videos like this one are now catch my eye.

    HI all: I’ll definitely view the rest of this long video when I have time !!

      Soon after 39:00 he says that if there’s a “big bang” — there must be a big collapse somewhere else.
      To this I agree: I feel that the only sensible way to explain the source of the energy of the “big bang”
      is to reckon that there might have been some kind of “big crunch” in the past, so that today’s universe is the rebounding of a previous universe. That is the big collapse somewhere else which powers the present continuation of the big bang.

    If you think that cold fusion works, then design a system and go into business selling the energy.

    keep an open mind re this issue
