LENR Research at MIT “Goes On”

An article reporting on the Google-funded project reported in Nature has been published in MIT News here: http://news.mit.edu/2019/3q-yet-ming-chiang-reopening-the-case-of-cold-fusion-0527#.XOw6HEe8lbU.twitter

It contains an interview with Yet-Ming Chiang, the Kyocera Professor in MIT’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering who was a member of the research team which Google funded to look again into cold fusion. Dr. Chiang explains that the work was conducted in secret. He states ” We didn’t want the fact that Google was funding research in this area to become a distraction. For the first couple of years, we didn’t even tell other members of our group the real reason behind the hydrogen storage experiments going on in the lab! ”

He also explains that the work of this team continues and that they are looking to add more members to the research group. Here is an excerpt:

“What we’ve learned over the past three years has suggested new ways to use electrochemistry and materials science to create highly loaded metal hydrides: palladium for sure, but also other metals. We believe that we have found certain knobs that could allow us to create phase states that have not been accessible before. If we can controllably produce these, they will be very interesting target materials for other experiments within the broader program looking at, for example, neutron yields from deuterium-deuterium fusion in a plasma discharge device at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.”
