New Energy Times is reporting about a successful replication by Toyota of a Mitsubishi experiment involving low energy nuclear reactions. This information comes from a presentation on November 14th of this year at the Winter meeting of the American Nuclear Society in San Diego, California where, according to the ANS conference program, the following paper was presented.
“Transmutation Reactions Induced by Deuterium Permeation Through Nano-Structured Pd Multilayer Thin Film”, Yasuhiro Iwamura, Takehiko Itoh (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.), Yasuko Terada (Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute), Tetsuya Ishikawa (Coherent X-ray Optics Laboratory, SPring-8/RIKEN)
The NET writes, “The physicist, Yasuhiro Iwamura, told the ANS audience that the Toyota researchers confirmed that nuclear changes from one element to another took place without the use of high-energy nuclear physics.” The full article is available only to subscribers, but the abstract indicates that the experiment involved a “deuterium permeation transmutation”, and that in addition to Toyota, the experiment had been successfully replicated at Osaka and Iwate Universities in Japan.
Here’s a link to a 2004 report written by Professors Iwamura, Itoh, Terada, Ishikawa and others on what appears to be essentially the same experiment. http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/IwamuraYobservatiob.pdf
