Thanks to ECW reader Iggy Dalrymple for bringing the following press release to my attention. Cyclone Power Technologies is a company that is developing the Cyclone Engine which it describes as “a Rankine Cycle heat regenerative external combustion engine, otherwise known as a “Schoell Cycle” engine. It creates mechanical energy by heating and cooling water in a closed-loop, piston-based engine system.”
Dr. Kim is known in the LENR community as a collaborator with Defkalion Green Technologies, and has recently written a paper on the Defkalion theory along with DGT chief technology officer John Hadjichristos.
Cyclone Power Technologies Adds Renowned Nuclear Physicist,
Dr. Yeong Kim, to its Technical Advisory Team
POMPANO BEACH, FL, December 3, 2013. Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: CYPW), developer of the all-fuel, clean-tech Cyclone Engine, announced today that it has added to its technical consulting and advisory team Dr. Yeong E. Kim, professor and Group Leader of the Nuclear and Many-Body Theory Group at Purdue University.
Dr. Kim is a nuclear physicist who has authored or co-authored over 200 scientific journal publications during his career. He received his Ph.D. in 1963 from the University of California, Berkeley, followed by a postdoctoral position at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Dr. Kim is currently Director of Purdue Center for Sensing Science and Technology (CSST), Group Leader of Purdue Nuclear and Many-Body Theory Group, and Professor of Physics at Purdue University. His main area of research has been theoretical nuclear physics, including the practical achievability of low energy nuclear reactions (LENR), or cold fusion. Dr. Kim has published widely on this subject, as well as condensed matter physics, atomic, molecular and optical physics, nuclear astrophysics, and quantum statistical mechanics. Since 1978, he served on advisory committees for numerous government agencies and international conferences covering diverse topics of nuclear physics. He has been a Fellow of the American Physical Society since 1977.
Dr. Kim stated: “I am very pleased to join Cyclone’s team. A growing percentage of the scientific community today is accepting evidence of anomalous heat effects occurring within low energy nuclear reactions. I believe this acceptance will speed-up experimentation in this field, with the goal of better understanding and controlling these reactions. If that is accomplished, I see the Cyclone Engine as being a major component in the next phase of product commercialization.”
