There is a LENR conference coming up in the United States. The American Nuclear Society provides education and information concerning nuclear science to professionals. Their winter meeting will be on November 11 through the 16, and their focus this year is “Future Nuclear Technologies: Resilience and Flexibility”.
This upcoming conference will, as usual, surround topics concerning fission. But this year, they are including a session on LENR. The Materials Science and Technology Division for the American Nuclear Society will present a session titled “Discussion of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions – Papers/Panel”.
One part of the presentation will be by Steven Krivit of the New Energy Times, who will present his paper The Big Picture of Low-Energy Nuclear Reaction Research.
Lewis Larsen of Lattice Energy will also present his study Electroweak Neutron Production…and Capturing Lightening Discharges.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd., has worked on LENR for some years now, pursuing its application in numerous areas that would benefit from renewable or infinite power. Yasuhire Iwamura and Takehiko Itoh, along with Yasuko Terada of the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute and Tetsuya Ishikawa of the Coherent X-ray Optics Laboratory, will all present information on LENR with their presentation of Transmutation Reactions Induced by Deuterium Permeation Through Nano-Structured Pd Multilayer Thin Film.
The panel discussion that follows will be led by Lewis Larsen, who developed the Widom/Larsen theory that has been the foundation for a great deal of LENR experimentation. His studies dealt with the theoretical structure of weak force/neutron capture. The description of the panel discussion follows:
“This session will explore the surprising possibility that highly energetic nuclear reactions and elemental transmutations result from low-energy nuclear reactions (LENRs). Although the term was not used a century ago, examples of LENRs go back that far. LENRs are weak interactions and neutron-capture processes that occur in nanometer-to-micron scale regions on surfaces in condensed matter at room temperature. Although nuclear, LENRs are not based on fission or any kind of fusion, both of which primarily involve the strong interaction.”
The idea that an organization as prestigious and influential as the American Nuclear Society would allow presentations on LENR at their conference shows that this emerging technology is getting the attention of main-stream science. Perhaps the presence of LENR in scientific discussions will, soon, become mainstream.
