Thanks to Peter Gluck for sharing about a paper he has been sent titled “Phenomenological model of collective Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (Transformation)” by Leonid Urutskoev, which will be presented at the 11th International Workshop on Anomalies in Hydrogen Loaded Metals 15-16 October 2015 Airbus, in Toulouse, France.
Peter has been given permission to republish the paper and it can be read in full at his Ego Out blog here: http://egooutpeters.blogspot.ro/2015/10/leonid-urutskoev-phenomenological-model.html
It’s a very interesting paper in which the author argues that fusion processes cannot account for the energy production found in LENR experiments, so another mechanism must be behind the energy releases that are undoubtedly happening. He writes about analyzing various experimental results and makes some conclusions:
“The results have convinced us that there must be a new type of nuclear reactions, which we have called: transformation reactions (as opposed to the term “transmutation”, which is used by all LENR researchers and which implies a shift of the nucleus of one chemical element into the nucleus of another chemical element). The introduction of the term “transformation”, which was taken from the theory of groups, was intended to emphasize the fact that this is an entirely new class of nuclear reactions with a collective, rather than a two-partial character.”
” We believe that the process of collective nuclear transformation proceeds in the “delicate” way in which nuclear transformations occur between multiple nuclei with close total energies, that is the process goes through the resonance path. The use of this norm in the phenomenological model allows to quickly find the ensembles of nuclei close in value of the total energy.”
” The authors of this paper have little doubt in the fact that the “cold fusion” phenomenon does not exist. At the heart of the processes observed in the LENR experiments, lie low-energy transformations which bear a collective character.
A little research shows that Leonid Urutskoev is a widely published researcher in the field of nuclear physics. Some of his publications can be found here.
