NOTE: Ecatreport wants to apologize to its readers on the confusion caused by the stated time of the MIT event in the original version of this article. This article was written several weeks ago and was, by a forward publishing date mistake, posted yesterday. We will do our best to try to avoid this issue in the future.
The Secretary of Energy, Nobel Laureate Dr.Steven Chu is currently having a look at LANR (Lattice-assisted Nuclear Reactions) cold fusion as a component in President Obama’s grand investment plan for green energy and reduction of imported oil.
A while ago MIT hosted a meeting between businessmen and a selection of scientists from all over the world – discussing the recent developments in cold fusion and LANR.
Dr.Chu is currently dedicating his career to find fresh solutions to the global energy and climate problem – this is his top priority as Secretary of Energy.
The MIT meeting includes many of the top figures in the LANR and Cold Fusion arena as well as other experts on nuclear reactions.
Dr. Chu, hopes that he, by bringing these different parties to the table, will create a clearer focus on funding for these kind of projects, speeding up the development of this new promising technology – and in the process, real solutions to the energy- and environmental problems will be created.
Cold Fusion Nuclear Reactions has definitely done a comeback and research areas like LANR definitely bring in the multidisciplinary mix of people needed to solve the global energy problem. The MIT gathering is one among many cold fusion and LANR conferences aimed at increasing our knowledge of this new technology and the engineering required to productify it.
The MIT meeting covered a lot of cold fusion and LANR related aspects. Examples are:
• Activation – anharmonic motion
• Crystal size
• Magnetic fields
• Optical irradiation.
• Codeposition impact
• Response time
• Cathode changes
• Nanostructured ZrO2-PdNiD
• Pressure Driven LANR systems,
• Emissions (neutron and other emissions)
• IR Studies
• Nuclear tracks
• CR-39 detectors Materials – Pd, Ti, Ni, ZrO2PdNi
• Diatomaceous and nanomaterials
• Electrochemistry / metamaterials with improved deep flux distribution.
• Creation of “spillover” nuclear solid-states – optical phonons
• Nuclear excited states.
• Finding and sharing information on pathways of Optimal Operating Point Control
• Excess heat calorimetry
• Modes of excess heat
• Quenching as a possible key to energy gain.
• Spillover – catalysis and LANR effects
• Nanomaterial boost theory – modeling excess heat in the Fleischmann-Pons experiment.
• Impact of Heavy Water Gate by the US PTO et alia.
• Concerns, issues and the turnaround years of non- support to LANR/CF by the Patent offices
• Government and the Academia
