Independent LENR researcher “Me356” has been posting on the LENR-Forum about obtaining a COP of close to 2. Here are some quotes from this thread:
“Today I was able to get excess heat again with COP near 2, then reactor failed due to a bad sealing that started to melt. Reactor was much bigger than previous time thus produced energy was in range of 1kW.
This time I was able to trigger excess heat from 350°C external, then temperature increased to ~700°C external just in 4 seconds. Internal temperature was higher . . .
“Today I think that sort of SSM was achieved, altough lasting just a few seconds. During this period power was zero yet temperature was rather constant – then suddenly decreased because of reactor failure. I was testing also a new radiation detector Si-14B and I must admit that beta radiation was elevated by 2-3 times. Development was rather not dependent on the excess heat production, but I have to investigate it more.
“If you are getting clear excess heat while input power is zero and reactor is still strongly glowing I think that the result is clear. Definitively I am very satisfied altough a lot of work must be done . . .”
“I can promise that I will share all the information needed for successfull replication in very near future.”
It’s interesting that he is working with wire rather than powder and getting positive results, and it’s encouraging that he says he will be willing to share information to help other replicators.
As far as his identity goes, although publicly he is anonymous, Bob Greenyer knows who he is, and has worked with him closely, so I think that adds a strong element of credibility. I am sure there will be continued interest in his work as he seems to be the active replicator who is getting the most positive results these days.
