Update on Cold Fusion!
Cold Fusion is Hot Again!
April 23, 09. Clean technology that not only promises but delivers cost effective energy with no dependence on on fossil fuels or access to wind or sunlight. Once a pet subject for scientists and academicians, cold fusion is now on the verge of becoming a viable reality.
Scientists who pioneered research on environmentally safe and economic means to produce a revolutionary approach to the generation of clean, abundant energy were, in the 80s, were ridiculed and sent to near-oblivion for want of adequate experimentation to reproduce results - a prerequisite for validation of any scientific theory.
According to research conducted in the US and Israel, a breakthrough is under way that could result in a dramatic increase in energy availability when compared to fossil fuels, wind, hydro-electric, and solar technologies. Since seven years, a group of scientists are applying a new principle involving the fundamental excitation concept to electrolytic cell operation and began obtaining excess heat in an electrolytic cell.
The process trademarked SuperWave ™ Fusion is an excess-heat producing reaction created by a SuperWave™ -induced interaction of palladium and deuterium. This energy producing interaction is driven by a complex, nested, “waves-waving-within-waves” signals.
This proprietary SuperWave™ signal is delivered via an electric current to a custom module containing a palladium cathode and D2O (deuterium instead of hydrogen in the water molecule). The end result is the release of energy as the deuterium atoms disassociate from the heavy water and load into the palladium lattice, allowing their wave-based energy structures to interact. The principal outputs from this interaction are heat and apparently small quantities of 4He, a non-radioactive isotope of Helium. Research to verify the 4He is currently under way.
Deuterium is obtained from sea water. Water containing predominantly Deuterium instead of Hydrogen bond with Oxygen to form water molecules (D2O). Heavy water is the same chemically as regular water (H2O) but since each Deuterium atom is twice as heavy as Hydrogen atom, heavy water is about 10% “heavier” than regular water. Deuterium(D) is a naturally occurring stable isotope of Hydrogen and has a proton and a neutron in its nucleus as opposed to Hydrogen which has just one proton. It is found throughout the world's oceans with one atom of Deuterium for every 6500 atoms of ordinary Hydrogen(H).
4He is a common isotope of Helium an inert gas that is one of the constituents of air. It is difficult to detect and highly permeating and hence it is also difficult to contain. The Platinum anode is a positively charged electrode (used in the reaction chamber) into which electrons are accepted when the electrolysis is on. The electrolyte is itself a solution of “heavy water” with lithium salts added to improve conductivity. The palladium cathode complements the electrolysis and is the negatively charged electrode from which electrons are donated during the electrolysis.
Palladium which facilitates the core reaction has a lattice structure internally. Its atoms are arranged in a periodic cubic lattice – a Palladium atom is located at each corner of the cube and at the center of each of the six faces of the cube.
The myths are steadily beginning to be debunked. Here are a few. Once thought impossible, labs around the world have convincingly demonstrated Cold fusion. Once the scientific community accepts cold fusion as a physical phenomenon, the public, the media, and policy makers will support major funding for the development of cold fusion as an alternative energy source. Over 200 researchers in more than 13 countries are actively researching cold fusion. Convincing experimental evidence exists that charged particles, neutrons and transmutation products are created in the process of cold fusion, in addition to the excess heat.
While emerging economies struggle with rising energy prices and development, breakthroughs such as an economically viable and stability-proven cold fusion technology would only usher in the next revolution impacting every walk of life.
While this is only a brief on what's happening latest on cold fusion, we hope to bring more updates as events unfold.
