Thoriated Tungsten Excess Heating – A Failed Replication Attempt
|May 19, 2013||Posted by Jack Cole under Hobbyist LENR|
I attempted to replicate the results reported in the previous post and was unsuccessful. For now, I am concluding that the previously-reported results were an artifact. This study included improved methodology and statistical methods, and further demonstrated the utility of the Automated Android system for experimentation. I realize negative results are not very exciting, but it is necessary to report them.
It should also be noted that this research is very different from that conducted by Ugo Abundo with his plasma discharge electrolysis using tungsten. This study used conventional electrolysis at low power levels (4 watts).
The next experiment has commenced using Isotan44 wire as a cathode with aluminum wire twisted around it. The reason for the aluminum is that potassium hydroxide (KOH) reacts with aluminum to produce hydrogen. Therefore, more hydrogen will be available for loading with the aluminum in direct contact with the Isotan44 as the chemical reaction produces hydrogen.
