A New Type of Glow Stick: Holmlid Alternatives Update

Jones Beene and I have continued working on alternatives for new experiments.  Jones has been running several experiments that have shown interesting results, but he is trying to rule out mundane explanations.  Our latest idea is to fix the “fuel” … Continue reading

Recent Results

I have recently conducted a series of three different experiments (with multiple runs each).  The first involved nickel powder, LiAlH4, and LiOH.  The second involved only nickel and LiAlH4.  The third involved nickel powder, titanium hydride, and LiAlH4.  All experiments … Continue reading

Induction Heating/Calorimeter Charateristics: Updated

As noted in a previous post, I have been working for some time on a new combined induction heating/calorimetry system.  The induction heating coil also serves as a heat exchanger for transferring the heat of the reactor to water.  This … Continue reading

New Reactor – Update: Leak Fixed

Update (4/14/15): The problem with leaks was fixed.  The major difficulty was the original valve on the 10-gallon cooler.  The valve was removed and replaced with a plastic valve and appropriate barb adapter for the vinyl tubing.  Power measurement calibrations … Continue reading

Possible Excess Heating with Alternative Hydrogen Source: Calibration Error Concluded

Please see Update 2 at the end.  I believe we can safely conclude that these results were due to calibration error. The current experiment utilizes an alternative method of hydrogen production to that used in previous experiments which gave indications … Continue reading

Replication of Ni/LiOH Excess Heat Results: Updated – Experiment Completed

  After the earlier success of producing apparent excess heating with a blend of nickel powder, lithium hydroxide, aluminum powder, and iron oxide (Fe2O3), there followed three failed attempts to repeat the results.  The present experiment appears to have been … Continue reading

Status of Research

With the previous research findings of significant excess heating for approximately 21 hours, the issue was raised of chemical reactions possibly accounting for the reaction.  The attempt to repeat the results empirically ruled out the likelihood of this with no … Continue reading

Experimental Plans for Replication

As noted in the report from yesterday on our recent replication attempt, there remain some issues to be clarified before there is more certainty about the results.  The following are issues I have identified with the previous study that need … Continue reading

Thoriated Tungsten Excess Heating – A Failed Replication Attempt

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 … Continue reading

Automated Android Electrolysis System – Update

In my quest to produce LENR results, the most recent set of experiments have provided some of the most convincing results.  I am not fully convinced yet, as more replications will be needed.  I had previously been using power supplies … Continue reading
