E-cat and Gold

A quick thought here as I work my way through the day.  Time is short, so I have to make this quick.  Okay, the thought is this:  If the E-cat is successful, and it looks like it could get a great credibility boost in the near future, th…

LENR, is it plausible? part II

From Widom-Larsen’s paper
For our example,let us suppose that an initial concentration of lithium very near a suitable metallic hydride surface is employed to impose a substantial chemical potential difference across the hydride surface. In such a case…

E-cat and Wikipedia

I am not that familiar with how articles are produced on Wikipedia.  I do use it a lot though, so going through this article is something of an education.

First thing I noticed is that the article’s editor(s) are under sanction.  Then I cam…

BECNF and the E-cat

For a reaction sequence, this looks a whole lot better than Widom Larsen. The sequence goes straight to copper 63. In the case of Widom Larsen, you could go down a few complicated pathways.

In addition, the beta decays occur faster with BECNF. Noti…

Words mean things

That’s what Rush Limbaugh said. Ok, if words mean things, let’s get some words well defined:
fusion: 4. Physics A nuclear reaction in which nuclei combine to form more massive nuclei with the simultaneous release of energy.
cold fusion: A hypothetical…
