Airbus Continues Engagement in Cold Fusion, Files Patents for ‘Fusion Reactor’ and ‘Fusing Ultra-Dense Hydrogen’

Thanks to Lou Pagnucco on the LENR Forum for posting links to two new related patent applications that Airbus has submitted to the US Patent office that show they have continued interest in the field of LENR.

The first is for: “Material arrangement for fusion reactor and method for producing the same

Here’s the abstract:

“A material arrangement for a fusion reactor comprising at least one material which is configured as a foam-like carrier material for condensable binding and fusing of hydrogen. The carrier material is provided with positively charged vacancies for condensing hydrogen atoms, small pores for receiving the condensate and for accelerating the condensation after previous penetration of atoms or molecules into these, and large pores for transporting a catalyst into the small pores. Furthermore, a method for producing the material arrangement is disclosed.”

One interesting excerpt:

“In addition to hot fusion, various fusion processes in the field of cold fusion have already been described. In this case these frequently lack demonstrable functionality and efficiency. A development in the field of cold fusion towards the use of condensed matter is increasingly indicated.”

The second application is for “Method and Apparatus for Generating and for Fusing Ultra-dense Hydrogen

Abstract:

“A method for generating and for fusing ultra-dense hydrogen in which molecular hydrogen is fed into at least one cavity and catalyzed, where the splitting and subsequent condensation of the molecular hydrogen is initiated on a catalyst of the cavity to form an ultra-dense hydrogen. The ultra-dense hydrogen is exposed to pressure or electromagnetic radiation to initiate fusion of the ultra-dense hydrogen in the at least one cavity and the reaction heat is led out from the at least one cavity. The pressure as mechanical resonance or the electromagnetic radiation as electromagnetic resonance amplifies the field and therefore the effect. Also, an apparatus for carrying out the method is disclosed.”

Airbus has previously filed a LENR-related application (see here), so they seem to be quite serious about this area. Berhard Kotzia is listed as the inventor on these new application, and he was a co-inventor in the earlier one. It’s not clear how much practical research they have done in connection with these applications, however. I suppose it is possible that they are trying to stake an early claim in anticipation of growing competition in the field, without having done much experimentation so far. Ultra-dense hydrogen seems to have become quite a watchword lately.

    Hydrogen compressed in a diamond vise.
    “It may even be metastable, meaning that like diamond, also formed at high pressures, the metallic hydrogen would maintain its state—and even its superconductivity—once brought back to room temperatures and pressures.”
    Is this Mills’s Hydrino created via another path? Other than it being the claimed composition of dark matter, I don’t know of Mills talking much about its property.

      Think of solid metallic hydrogen as the perfect precursor for a self-catalyzed hydrino reaction. Destabilized SMH per theory becomes atomic hydrogen in transition to hot molecular hydrogen. Multi-body reactions requiring 4 participants (atomic hydrogen), or 2 hot molecular hydrogen to catalyze a single hydrogen transition to hydrino, require high density for a useful reaction cross section.Also hydrino disproportionation reactions which can evoke even more energy release, will be aided by the high density made available by SMH.

        Thanks piper, I guess the key word is precursor.

    How sad it will be that we discover how to move on to the next energy paradigm and the political atmosphere is filled with enough vitriol to move the doomsday clock a half minute closer to midnight.

    • Well, it really signifies nothing; Why was the clock not moved ahead a month or two back when Russian diplomats were being thrown of of the country, US troops were moved into Poland and war seemed imminent? This seems awfully politically motivated and timed for a specific purpose now.

  • Gerard McEk

    I am not sure this is fair to Holmlid. I believe he was first to announce fusion with ultra dense hydrogen.

    A rule for LENR

    Nuclear energy transfer from a nucleus to a Bose condensate quasiparticle ensemble member(BCQEM) happens without radiation because its energy storage capacity is large enough to hold enough energy to reach the meson creation level without an EMF overflow. The BCQEM acts like a big Tank. When the BCQEM does overflow, the BCQEM produces mesons through Hadronization. The BCQEM is a BEC of SPPs. The BEC lives on the surface of the UDH.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadronization

    When the quasiparticle is not a member of a Bose condensate, it releases stored nuclear energy less than or equal to 300,000 electron volts. This is a single SPP.

    Energy transfer from the nucleus to the individual or collective SPP is via entanglement. The SPP becomes the same particle as the nucleus and shares energy.

    Holmlid states:

    Quote

    “More recently, another form of Rydberg matter has been detected and studied, where the electron orbital angular momentum l is zero. The Rydberg matter structure is in this case instead given by the spin angular momentum s > 0. This quantum number was identified experimentally to have values s = 1, 2 or 3, giving an interatomic distance of only 0.57 pm in level s = 1.3This type of matter is usually called ultra-dense hydrogen with notation as H(0) for simplicity, with most studies concerned with the level s = 2 with experimental H-H bond distance of 2.3 ± 0.1 pm.”

    In UDH, the electrons form a stationary spin wave on the surface of the UDH, the electrons sit still and don’t orbit (electron orbital angular momentum l is zero). In this state, electrons will become entangled with photons and become SPPs. All the SPPs become entangled and form a BEC. Thus the UDH effectively produces a huge SPP with huge energy storage capacity. This SPP is quasi stable and continually releases energy as mesons when its meson energy limit is reached.

    In a non BEC state, single SPPs on nanowire have a small energy storage capacity and will release stored energy as XUV light when they decay. (10 to 100 picoseconds)
