Excess Heat: Why Cold Fusion Research Prevailed

Welcome back. Also, as the research continues, engineers are now working on devices and not just on basic research, so products will soon be on the market that will put an end to the controversy.

The reason mainstream science rejects cold fusion is that it is against the known laws of nuclear physics. But this argument is worthless, because the models used in high-energy physics are two-body interactions, whereas in cold fusion, the reactions occur in a solid; therefore, it is a multi-body situation.

You cannot use a model that is not adapted to the actual experiments.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

When cold fusion enters mainstream science and technology, then a lot more progress will happen. This will be a new era of physics, and I am very optimistic that young scientists will step in and bring great discoveries. SBK: Do I understand you correctly? JPB: Actually, nobody knows for sure what the theory behind the phenomenon is. Therefore, I prefer to use the term that everybody understands. An absorption of a neutron by an atom is also fusion. SBK: I did not know that an absorption of a neutron by an atom is also fusion.

Is this just your opinion, or is this stated in textbooks? JPB: Textbooks do not mention neutron absorption as fusion, because this is not a usual reaction for light elements. But in general terms, if you fuse two light elements into a heavier one, this is a fusion. This is a semantic issue. In my opinion, changing the term will look like hiding the well-known subject known worldwide as cold fusion.

I prefer to be direct so that there is no confusion. My book relates to cold fusion, even though I know that the phenomenon is more complex and not well understood yet.

SBK: OK, thanks for the explanation on neutron absorption. Or do you mean that nobody has any idea what kind of process it is: fusion, fission, neutron formation and capture, Erzion, etc? JPB: I do not know whether it is cold fusion or something else.

We have to wait until more experimental work brings more information about the possible mechanism and see how they fit with the various theories. JPB: In fact, for the scientists, all journals are not equal. These are the physics journals that are considered peer-reviewed by mainstream science. The other journals, even peer-reviewed ones, have very little value.

I should probably modify what I said before to limit it to these three journals. This experiment has been duplicated by McKubre. SBK: You also said that engineers are now working on devices and not on basic research, so products will be on the market soon that will put an end to the controversy. Can you point me to any credible evidence that LENR products will be on the market soon?

Cold fusion: real after all?

I think that both Andrea Rossi and Defkalion are after something that works, but I do not have direct proof of it. SBK: Is this the best reference for the Arata work to which you refer? Arata, Y. B, Is this the best reference for the McKubre replication to which you refer? McKubre, M.

assessment of cold fusion research

Review of experimental measurements involving dd reactions, PowerPoint slides. Cambridge, Mass. JPB: The best paper by Arata is from While the book illustrates much progress, the specific reactions that produce the heat energy still await discovery. Accused of being scientific heresy, this story parallels the famous story about Galileo whose academy fellows refused to look through his new telescope because the observations would contradict then current cosmic theory. Likewise, skeptics of cold fusion research refuse to go into the laboratory and measure the generation of excess heat in contradiction of current nuclear theory.

Two future possibilities are presented: 1 a sustainable, plentiful, and portable source of energy for society, and 2 the transmutation of radioactive waste products into harmless elements radioactivity remediation.
