Gamma Free Nuclear Transition Through De-excitation of Spin 0 Strong Force Excited States by Carl-Oscar Gullström (Update: Rossi Calls it ‘Remarkable’)

I have recieved the following paper from Carl-Oscar Gullström who is a doctoral student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University, Sweden. Readers may recall that he previously wrote a paper titled Low radiation fusion through bound neutron tunneling.

He writes: “I have thought and considered a new way to explain the LENR phenomena by neutron transmission.” His new paper is published below.

UPDATE: Andrea Rossi seems impressed by this paper. When asked about it on the Journal of Nuclear Physics Rossi replied:

The work of Oscar Gullstrom, of the University of Upsala, is remarkable. Obviously I already studied it.
Warm Regards,

Gamma Free Nuclear Transition Through De-exitation of Spin 0 Strong Force Exited States

  • Bob Greenyer

    There could be some extra isotope / element analysis data in this paper – look out for it.

  • Wishful Thinking Energy

    I didn’t understand most of it, but I found Carl-Oscar’s derivation of the optimal fuel ratio interesting. Using isotopic abundance ratios he calculates an optimal fuel ratio of 50% Ni, 20% Li, and 30% LiAlH4. What are the chances? 😉

    • Gerard McEk

      Yes, what are the chances?. There will only be a few in the world who can value the work of Carl-Oscar, only because the common ‘scientists’ are not interested. But the LENR experimentalists can try his recommendation and if it works, then he has good papers for the Nobel prize. 😉

        This may be the breakthrough for LENR replicators. I wonder if Rossi doesn’t already know this. How else would he be able to design an effective catalyst?

        • Gerard McEk

          Yes, he is aware of this theory and studying it, but I gess he found his way using the Edisonial method.

          • f sedei

            If so, this only adds to Rossi’s brilliance.

  • bachcole

    Just in case people don’t realize it or connect the dots, Swedes discovered and named more elements than any other nation, I think, but at the very least WAY out of proportion to their population. Don’t let their small population fool you. If anyone is going to lead the LENR revolution, it could very well be Sweden. For those who have studied the periodic table, it is NO surprise that they was leading the way in LENR.

  • Billy Jackson

    I applaud the work and the sentiment behind it. I question the persistence in insisting that LENR fits our physics models. Its like they absolutely can not admit this is something new or outside the sphere of knowledge as we know it. seems to me that physicist in general want this in its box where it belongs rather than admit they don’t know.

    (this is nothing to do with the author of the article… just an observation)

    • Mark S.

      I do think it is a case of fitting within the box at all. After all, physics added the new dark matter and dark energy to help understand consistent observation. Without them one would get an over-unity universe. LOL.

      The problem with Ecat and LENR is and has been that the experiments are inconsitent enough to doubt some new forms of energy.

  • GreenWin

    And yet we are seeing glimmers of real science coming from planetary science, and cosmologists. For example the recent NASA photos of Pluto and its moon Charon. Scientists awed by unexpected discoveries, willing to admit their surprise – are the stuff of real science.

    • Enduser

      How does NASA get the photos of Pluto given there is only starlight that far out?

      • GreenWin

        New Horizons instrument uses a camera called MVIC (aka Ralph) – combines panchromatic and color imaging capabilities with IR imaging spectroscopy.

        Night vision optics do pretty well with just starlight – Wernerml’s comment below has details.

  • Freethinker

    Frank, could you make the report available as a downloadable pdf as well?

    • ecatworld

      You should be able to download it from the link beneath the embedded document, FT.

      • Freethinker

        Sorry, no. Also there are irritating restrictions ofthe scribd on my android, unless I install their app, which I won’t since the require ridiculous access to my phone.

        • Eric Walker

          Hi — see the thread right above this one in the comments for a link.

  • Alan DeAngelis

    Does anyone know which isotopes of silicon are found in the ash?

    • Alan DeAngelis

      It is just that I have been thinking about this ever since I learned that the nickel powder Rossi gave Sven Kullander contained lithium.
      H(1) + Li(7) > 2He(4) 17.3 MeV

      The 8.7 MeV alphas from the above reaction could go on to react with Al(27) {natural aluminum is 100% Al(27}.

      He(4) + Al(27) > Si(30) + H(1) 2.37 MeV

      And the 2.37 proton would hit the Li(7).

      A chain reaction.

      • Alan DeAngelis


        One last thought:

        The reaction is initiated by heating to 60 degrees C. Heating would cause the soft (by HSAB) covalent aluminum hydride bonds to oscillate at their infrared stretching frequency that could bring the proton, H(1) close enough to the aluminum nucleus, Al(27) to initiate the following reaction.

        Al(27) + H(1) > Mg(24) + He(4) 1.6 MeV

        This 1.6 MeV alpha, He(4) could initiate the above chain reactions.

    Dr. Rossi, says the spook, is quantum tunneling, i don’t know if he actually saw this, or has evidence of it, i believe that he is saying after all his studying, and observation, and by process of elimination, that Q/T is the only viable explanation, i personally think it is new, and there for it can’t be explained with conventional, physics. it’s like i have all ways contended , that you heat up the metal lattice in this case, nickel, it expandes, then you load the H making sure that it is absorbed deeply.
    Then the H molecules are squeezed, by a reduction of external heat, the hydrogen is trapped, and are squeezed in too close to the nickel’s atomic structure, causing the spooky interaction, and the production of heat, i would conclude by saying,if one could squeeze, the atomic structure even more you could force more heat production, until SS is achieved, but don’t squeeze to hard , or that balloon will pop. lol,

    Could someone explain a bit about the concept of over bound nuetron and protons. Are these nuclei excited to higher energy states in the nucleus? Or something else?

    It seems to me that both the Rossi Cook paper and this one require the nucleus to be in an excited state with particular spin states in order to absorb nucleons or to make a transition.

    Could the Ponderomotive forces described by Lundin and Lidgrin and or other resonance mechanisms described elsewhere generate these excited states? Perhaps neutron spalation or proton ejection itself is not necessary but just sufficient excitation to allow the mechanism described by Carl Oscar to work. Perhaps other phenomena such as magnetic effects and phonon oscillation all act to bring the nuclei into correct alignment and proximity to enhance an support the process.
