Defkalion GT – Status Update
|July 1, 2012||Posted by Jack Cole under Defkalion|
Defkalion GT has issued some information through their website about their ongoing testing of their LENR device. This on the heels of an underwhelming interview given on their business practice. Here is the information that they released:
DEFKALION STATUS UPDATE
Following our absence from the public sphere, the following is a status update:
We are conducting analyses of our materials using XRF and ICP-MS. We are committed that this
analysis be done with the highest standards. To ensure these high standards, we are using
multiple laboratories in Europe. When those results are available, we shall present them in the
We also have designed and are operating a fully instrumented flow calorimeter to measure the
power production of our reactor. Outside scientists and engineers are measuring the input
power as well as our flow calorimeter output performance. All these results will be presented
when we are confident that they will withstand the scrutiny demanded by our own interests in
product development, and the scrutiny of our customers.
We thank you for your continued interest in our challenging and important work load.
First, a couple of definitions. According to Wikipedia, ICP-MS, stands for inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. XRF stands for X-Ray florescence, which is used in chemical analysis of substances. So, essentially this is an analysis to determine what elements are present. They don’t describe exactly why they want to do this, but presumably may have to do with detecting transmutation of elements. The reason they give for not releasing the results at this point is that they are waiting for results that will withstand scrutiny while protecting their interests in product development. I’ll leave it to the reader to parse that statement for meaning.
Let’s hope we actually get some concrete results in the near future.
