The Rossi E-CAT HT2 Test Report

An independent test report of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat HT2 is available at the Cornell University Library archive.  The team, seemingly led by Hanno Essén of the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden included four collaborators from Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden with Mr. Rossi’s old friend Giuseppe Levi of Bologna University and Evelyn Foschi of Bologna […]

An Update on Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat

Yesterday Sterling D. Allan of PESN and Frank Acland of E-CatWorld conducted a one and a half hour interview with Andrea Rossi hosted by Gary Hendershot on his SmartScarecrow service regarding developments in the E-Cat technology based on the cold fusion technology called “LENR” for Low Energy Nuclear Reaction. SmartScarecrow has chat room where people […]

LENR or Cold Fusion Progress Mid 2012

Sterling Allen interviewed Michael McKubre of SRI International, the international research lab in Menlo Park, CA in a one and a half hour talk covering a wide range of topics.  McKubre, long-time cold fusion researcher, has one of the best views of the LENR or Cold Fusion field with experience to match.  Allen offers great […]

Francesco Celani Demos His LENR Device Publicly

National Instruments, a major U.S. company that produces tools for engineers and scientists offers an annual ‘NI Week’ trade show, this year at the Austin Convention Center in Texas. Francesco Celani, a physicist with the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics in Frascati, Italy, brought a LENR device he developed that uses hydrogen gas and […]

A New Way to Think About the Atomic Nucleus

A team from the Institut de Physique Nucléaire d’Orsay (Université Paris-Sud/CNRS) and from CEA (the French Atomic Energy Commission), in collaboration with the University of Zagreb is offering a new view of the atomic nucleus that unifies its liquid and molecule-like aspects. To clear that up, the atomic nucleus is generally described as a drop […]

A Status Update on Cold Fusion

Your humble writer has been watching for the news out of the International Low Energy Nuclear Reactions Symposium, ILENRS-12 held at The College of William and Mary Sadler Center early last week.  At long last, after years of little available event news we’re getting some interesting bits out. The process of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions  […]

Three Cold Fusion Processes Coming to Market

The new leader is Brillouin Energy with a new process named the Hot Tube Boiler.  Sterling Allen at PESN interviewed Brillouin’s Robert W. George II, CEO; and the inventor, Robert Godes, the Chief Technology Officer.  Mr. Allen learned Brillouin has had two significant independent validations of their scientific model and claims. One of those was […]

A Synopsis of the Miley LENR Theory

ColdFusionNow attended the Nuclear and Emerging Technology for Space conference in The Woodlands, Texas last month and had the good fortune to gather information and visit with George H. Miley, Professor Emeritus of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champagne (UIUC). Here we’ll have a look at Miley’s take on the action in LENR, but by all […]

Will LENR Go Commercial Now?

Interviewer James Martinez spoke with Brillion Energy Chief Executive Officer Robert George and Chief Technical Officer Robert E. Godes on ‘Ca$h Flow’ last Tuesday, March 27, 2012.  Here’s a summary and a few notes. Mr. George said right at the start, “After ten years of work by Robert Godes, he’s designed a control system in […]

CERN Has A LENR Colloquium

Settle in, CERN the multinational research group based in Europe had a colloquium on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions last Thursday.  There was no big news, but there is interesting news out of Japan.  The file downloads are a treasure trove of useful information. To start is the 40-page PDF presentation by Yogendra Srivastava from the […]

Trouble for Andrea Rossi and His E-Cat

Andrea Rossi, the inventor and organizer of the E-Cat LENR or cold Fusion thermal energy production device has a new problem.  It looks like another tempest of vague grounds. Steven Krivit, the sometimes to some folks notorious writer of heavily biased opinion on cold fusion and once in a while other energy fields broke out […]

Defkalion’s Independent Testing Underway

Ny Teknik’s Mats Lewan has interviewed Alexandros Xanthoulis a representative of the investors supporting Defkalion about the firm’s shall we say, Ni+H=E, LENR or Cold Fusion technology independent testing protocol. On the Defkalion website the report has it said, “Tests with the presence of high level (Greek) government officials have been concluded. Opinions and results […]

Cold Fusion aka LENR to be Reviewed at CERN

Francesco Celani and Yogendra Srivastava will be leading a kind of informal meeting called a colloquium at Europe’s fundamental physics facility, CERN.  The topic, “Overview of Theoretical and Experimental Progress in Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR)” will be discussed March 22, 2012 in the CERN Council Chamber.  Of note is the event will be viewable […]

Now a Little Controversy Involving Cold Fusion

It’s enough to make one smile with the silliness of the thing.  As noted here last week Electrical Engineering Prof. Peter Hagelstein at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) taught an Independent Activities Period course titled “Cold Fusion 101: Introduction to Excess Power in Fleischmann-Pons Experiments”. Dr. Mitchell Swartz, of JET Energy and Prof. Hagelstein […]
