LENR with Zeolites

Ruby Carat of Cold Fusion Now conducted an interview with Iraj Parchamazad and Melvin Miles. Most of the interview is with Iraj Parchamazad, where he talks about his LENR research at the University of LaVerne, in LaVerne, California. Zeolites are said to have some unique properties including an intrinsic electric field, resonances, and cavities allowing only certain sized molecules inside. Followers of LENR will note that some of those intrinsic properties have been found to be important for LENR in the past. Dr. Parchamazad showed two reactors that are very small, and his approach is similar to that of Dr. George Miley in that no external energy is applied. The zeolite is infused with very small palladium particles (10-20 atoms each) and deuterium is applied at pressure. Dr. Parchamazad noted heat generation in 10 out of 10 experiments. In this case, any heat generation is infinite COP because there is no input power. Dr. Miles made an off-the-cuff remark during the interview that the energy density would be on the order of a megawatt per gram, but Dr. Parchamazad was understandably cautious about that remark. Dr. Parchamazad hopes to scale up the reactor and conduct additional experiments with fine measurements of the amount of palladium being used. In addition, he would like to measure for nuclear byproducts such as tritium, but noted he could use some modest private funding.
