    It is an interesting artickel and I would surely like to know if Vladimir is right. At the same time I wonder if his theories are right, because temperature seems to have a positive effect to trigger and enhance the LENR effect.
    He is asking for money to use the Elias accelerator it seems?

    • Alan Smith

      Hi Gerard. Bright guy is Vladimir. He has been working on the idea that heat is not the only trigger for LENR for some time. After all, if we accept the evidence for LENR in living systems like algae etc, then it can by definition happen at room temperature – or in Vladimir’s at cryo temperatures.

      It may be relevant to consider Celani’s experience that was mentioned about two years ago : Celani Warns of LENR Explosions at Low Temperatures |

  • Jim Pelsor

    yes,
    An interesting hypothesis providing the basis for a grant proposal request.

  • Fedir Mykhaylov

    The positive effect of high temperature on LENR reaction may explain the formation of vacancies in the crystal structure of nickel. Some theorists associated with LENR reaction surface plasmons.

    I wonder if an electron beam in the of a few 100s keV, would generate broad x-Ray bremsstrahlung radiation Spectrum with peak value 100 or so keV peak.

    Then perhaps if certain nucleus energy levels with right spin and parity fall within that spectrum if they would absorbe those frequencies. Then perhaps radiate in smaller cascade transitions at lower energy frequencies.

    If so maybe we would see absorption lines in the spectrum at certain frequencies and and emission lines at different lower frequencies.

    If Norman Cook is right about higher energy transition resonances with the extended Mossbauer effect could they also be stimulated from bremstrahlung radiation at these frequencies? Then cascade at lower frequency emissions. If so then maybe we would see absorption lines and emission lines over a broader range of frequencies.

    It might be interesting to look at gamma and x-Ray spectra from these tests and replications to see if we see this effect. It would need to be verified that any apparent absorption and emission is above that that is attributed to noise. And also that they matched known valid transitions in the nucleus.

    If so maybe it would show a coupling between either thermal electrons or electron beams and excitation of the nucleus without high energy gamma.

      No gamma rays have nor will be found given the protons and deuterons are part of the metal lattice which favors multi source lattice heat release rather than specific high energy radiance as contrasted or is found in hot fusion isolated atoms in a plasma.
      Such monitoring has been reported extensively. Obviously radiation monitoring has not been neglected by these intelligent scientists.

      • Stephen

        Hi Job001 maybe you miss read my post? I wasn’t suggesting that high energy gamma was produced. More that maybe certain frequencies may be absorbed by the nucleus energy transitions from the X- Ray bremstrahlung radiation. The bremstrahlung radiation is that generated by the electron beam. I did mention some low energy gamma may possibly be radiated at lower non ionising gamma frequencies similar at frequencies similar to x- Ray’s. My understanding is this kind of radiation has in fact been observed in a number of experiments others have suggested that this low energy radiation is converted to heat when the device is working correctly.

    If bremsstrahlung radiation is affected this way it could as easily be generated from an electron beam as thermal electrons.

    If Self sustain comes from electrons generated from heating in some other part of the process then I suppose these would also need to be accelerated into a beam by some method.

    The LENR was often observed during bombardement of deuterium (or possibly protium) plasma. The story goes, that piece of palladium, which served as an cathode inside the deuterium lamp did start to glow even after shutting off the discharge. Also the bombardement with ions is very effective method for fast saturation of metal with hydrogen (being forced implantation in fact). You could easily achieve the oversaturation of metal by hydrogen, which is otherwise difficult to achieve.

    Absolutely rights Stephen . There is an interesting hypothesis Beckman Professor of plasmon conversion of gamma radiation in the hydrogenated metals

    The assumption is that D-D fusion is taking place but we can’t ignore the elephant in the room, the Mitsubishi transmutations that
    indicate that reactions between deuterium and heavier elements (with even larger Coulomb barriers) are taking place in LENR.

      I can’t think very quantitatively this morning but the
      Coulomb barriers between metal hydrides (and deuterides) D~~M~~D, a three bodied system could behave quit different from a two bodied system.

      Notice that in the Mitsubishi transmutations even numbers of deuterons are being consumed in the reactions. http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/CoulombsLawForThreeAlignedCharges/

        I should say n-bodied systems.
        And I know that cesium has a valance of 1+ but on its way to Pr there may be some sort of concerted reaction that goes through an element with a valance of 2+ (like Ba++).
