Inside an LENR Reactor, Improving Outcomes for Replicators (Alan Smith)

The following post has been submitted by Alan Smith, an independent LENR researcher based in London.

Alan Smith. February 2016


‘Dusty plasmas’ (DPs) are described and discussed in the contemporary context of LENR systems, with a look at the history of their study which embraces both terrestrial and cosmological examples.

Langmuir in the 1920’s first reported his observation of the creation of dusty Tungsten plasma in a discharge tube containing inert gas. Langmuir’s suspicion at the time that DPs would capture the interest of physicists was eventually proven to be correct. There was exponential growth in journal publications about DPs between 1981 and 2003/4, since when they have continued to appear in healthy numbers. This is because studies of fast ions with high energies compared to ‘background’ plasma ions play a key role in the investigation of both deep space plasmas and in controlled fusion research.

The potential similarities between the inner environment of a working LENR reactor and the hot, dusty, and highly energetic plasmas found in the atmospheres of Brown Dwarf stars, our sun, and the planet Saturn are described, with a view to considering the electromagnetic approach to LENR, with the aim of enhancing the outcomes of current replication attempts.

    I agree with your conclusion that waveform used to heat an LENR reactor is a key factor in achieving a positive result. Since the Lugano authors did not look inside the power supply boxes provided by Rossi, it is possible that the Lugano reactor also was supplied with some higher frequency pulses than could not be measured by the power meter. The effect of the electrical waveform used to heat the reactor should be included as a part of every LENR experiment.

      IIRC, the waveform of the electricity fed to the E-Cat was measured in one of the very earliest of the Rossi demonstrations, and perhaps the very first. I don’t think it was mentioned in any of the texts, but a photo of apparatus showed an oscilloscope among the measuring devices.

        Anything we can find regarding Rossi’s waveform could be essential information. If you can find any hints from the aforementioned photo, video or documents a link to same would be greatly appreciated. Always fun to go back and look at the early Rossi/Focardi demo’s. Thanks.

    Thanks,Alan. good stuff,although i’m not sure how ,plasmonics works in this field, so i will study, study study, or just listen to your lecture lol.

      Thank you Dave. your link led me to Moller’s account of Langmuir’s work at GE. Fascinating stuff. Might I ask if you are still experimenting? I seem to recall you posted some pictures of a test rig on FB awhile back. You might be interested in visiting my lab near London, always good to have a natter – let me know if so.
