Cold Fusion is an inappropriate term, as accurately described by Steven Krivet in a recent article ” Cold Fusion is Neither” cold or fusion. He provides the background history and ongoing research before throwing his support solely behind the Widom Larsen theory (2006). I also believe the Widom Larsen theory has strong merit but not to the exclusion of other theories … Read more
Casimir effect explains why 2 conductive but uncharged paralell plates are attracted together and it explains stictions forces that causes nano geometry devices to clump together frustrating research efforts to design mechanical devices at this scale. The present theory of Casimir effect is based on longer wavelength vacuum fluctuations which are physically too long to exist between the closely spaced Casimir plates. It is … Read more
A relativistic interpretation of Casimir effect represents an enabling step for the numerous claims of excess heat in LENR. It provides the energy required by other theories to produce nuclear energy or ash less chemistry. One very plausible hypothesis for this 2nd step was recently presented by Jones Beene on the Vortex mailing list and is shown below. … Read more
Numerous papers have been published on anomalous heat generated by reactions between atomic gases and catalysts or nano powders. The reactions remain the subject of intense research and controversey spread across several fields of research. LENR, cold fusion, solid state systems used by Arata in Japan or Mills at Black Light Power. Most of these researchers … Read more
I had been following the work of Randell Mills for years. His company, Black Light Power, in nearby Cranburry NJ has been claiming a new form of chemistry based on a new state of hydrogen inside a catalyst.
This is a follow-up to a previous article Will 2010 be the year of Zero Point Energy? It focuses on the perceived differences between hydrino and fractional hydrogen and proposes that the two are equivalent.
For decades researchers have often reported anomalous excess heat when atomic hydrogen and catalysts are involved. The mechanisms and therefore the ability to scale this effect have so far eluded scientists. Some research points to chemical byproducts and other research points to nuclear byproducts but both are insufficient to explain the amount of heat detected.

The Hydrino was dismissed by mainstream physicists because it was defined as having orbital states lower than ground state.
