More on cold fusion...er..LENR

It may be difficult to separate "theory" from "application," but let''s see if this helps facilitate the discussion.

More on cold fusion...er..LENR

Post by Richard Hull »

It's back! It's being funded and talked about by NASA and others. Sabine Hossenfelder's update.

For the first time, debunking is not the order of the day, being replaced by curiosity. That is a good thing. Fusion power? Probably not, but another way to do fusion?

Show me some real science here!!!! All of the research that I have read misses it!

Freaking trying to reproduce the sometimes irreproducible is a sure sign that there are variables affecting the outcome that have not yet been identified.

Very first round of experiments that I would have done back in the day would have been looking at each of the isotopes of palladium. At the very least, Pd102, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, and 110. They need not and probably best not, ultra pure isotopes but variations of the compositions especially with that 107 one. It is not so easy to obtain, no but something fundamental needs to be done to determine the critical parameters.

Similarly, I have not seen any data with other hydrogen isotopes most importantly tritium and combinations with deuterium. The nuclear environment of all of these different combinations will either give a winner, a mediocre, or negative result. But ALL of the results will lead to critical knowledge.

Enough of the is trying to reproduce the same ole same ole. Get some real science and experimental design into the works. There are many more experiments like phases/transitions, and that fact that it is a super conductor at low temperature could really shed some light on it but I will end my rant here. DO SOME SCIENCE PEOPLE!!!!!

Worth a read. 2009 paper (pdf) overview to bring folks up to speed on the history.
