Return of incandescent light bulbs as MIT makes them more efficient than LEDs

Nanoplasmonics can now produce coatings that can selectively certain frequencies of light and allow others through a substrate that has been coated with a selectively reflective surface. This is great news for LENR reactors.

Rossi can now coat his wafers to allow only visible light out of the steel and keep the heat in. Or Rossi can keep all light in both visible and infrared and only let electrons out.

Rossi could also convert the infrared light into visible light.

Once the Rossi X-Cat is released to the market, expect rapid advance of technology that might leave Rossi in the dust with an obsolete product after a market run of just a month or two.

If you want to get a head start on your own LENR produce development along these lines see as follows:

    True, except Hydrogen car. When all the infrastructure goes that way, cost becomes immaterial and huge chunk of the rest of the economy get modified.
    Although costly, it’s not a zero sum game, neither stupidity.

    The “coating” is analogous to increased resistance. Besides the lifespan issue, the product is MIT by-product.
    Dr. Rossi already seems to be able to control the heat / light output, I believe perhaps more effectively.
    Also, radiated heat saves heating costs to some degree, so, it could be a discounted benefit, at least when the heat is a desired output.
    Nice for MIT kids, but let’s see where this goes.

    I read this patent a while back, regarding this technology.

    Rossi is in the best possible position to test the new optical coatings on an X-cat. With his quick mind and creativity, he will surely have a leg up against his competitors.

    It can take many years to get a working prototype to the market, E-Cat is kind of testament to this. I think whoever is first or even second will have a while to exploit their product. If the Patents do their job it will buy even more time. 3 to 5 years should be possible, enough time to establish yourself?
