Pure Energy Systems News
Once again, we bring you a compilation of various news items about the
various LENR companies since our January
I'm running a day behind in my news posting this week, for the first time, day
after day since coming home from Brazil, where I missed uploading a news bullet
prior to boarding a plane. Another 30 minutes, and I would have had it.
There were no mainstream news sources
reporting on LENR this week.

on the Testing, Rossi is 'Very Worried' - Andrea Rossi
made a few more comments yesterday (Jan 20th) regarding the 3rd
party tests and peer reviewing process that is apparently ongoing:
The Party is composed by professors of 4 international Universities,
and their work is very complex. It does not depend on me, and, as I
said, I do not know where... (E-CatWorld; January 21, 2013)
- E-Cat: Rossi worried, no independent reports in February?
- Independent tests on the E-Cat Andrea Rossi worried about the arrival of the results. Would no longer be guaranteed to arrive by February.

Peer Review by 'High Level' Magazine to take all of February
- I recently made an inquiry of Andrea Rossi regarding the
publication of the 3rd party report and today received this message
in reply: Dear Frank: The report will be published on a very high
level scientific magazine. The peer reviewing of the magazine is in
course, and I have been informed it will take... (E-CatWorld;

collection of videos with Andrea Rossi. It is worth
perusing for those interested in Rossi's work. See also Eco

- Third Party Tests Are Not Paid
- As we await the publication of the third party results on Andrea Rossi's E-Cats, a pall of doubt overhangs the procedure. Will the third party be unbiased? Will they publish their findings in a respectable scientific journal, or hide the information in a minor publication? Could the certificators be influenced by outside factors?
(ECatReport; January 17, 2013)
- Centralized Controls For The E-Cats
- On the Journal of Nuclear Physics, recently, there have been several commenters interested in the concept of a
"bigger" E-Cat. That is to say, some people think that an E-Cat should be able to produce more than 10 kW.
(ECatReport; January 17, 2013)
- Are Bigger E-Cats Still Possible?
- Several commenters on Andrea Rossi's Journal of Nuclear Physics recently have asked if the size of the E-Cat can be increased.
(ECatReport; January 20, 2013)
- Tar Sands & The E-Cat
- Tar sand holds the new gold mine in fuel for the next hundred years at least for fossil fuels. It is suspected that the Canadian tar sands, and those in the U.S., will eclipse the amount of oil coming from the United Arab Emirates. In the U.S., some of that will come from shale, as well. But, how do the oil companies access the fuel that saturates the substrate of the North American continent? With heat, that's how.

Patent Granted for Francesco Piantelli's LENR Process - The
European Patent office has granted a patent for the Francesco
Piantelli's invention of process for producing energy from a
nickel-hydrogen reaction. European Patent Office published the
certificate on January 16th, 2013. All documents associated with this
application can be found here. Sergio Focardi, who assisted Andrea Rossi
in the development of the E-Cat... (E-CatWorld; January 18, 2013)
- Christos Stremmenos Challenges Piantelli's Patent
- In January of this year, a European patent on a LENR device was granted to Francesco Piantelli. In the patent it is stated that Piantelli has worked with powdered nickel in his experiments since 1998.
Christos Stremmenos challenges this claim. He says, in the Journal of Nuclear Physics, that he was the only person working with nickel powder through the 1990s, along with Prof. E. Bonetti and Prof.
Focardi. (ECatReport; January 24, 2013)
- Rossi Responds To Furor Over Patents
- A patent on LENR has recently been granted to Francesco Piantelli, and it has the LENR community in an uproar. It seems that Piantelli has patented a process that he has never used or at least, not until recently. The patent refers to
"previous work" done in the 1990s using nickel powder, but Piantelli never used nickel powder in the 90s. This has many people calling
"foul", as Andrea Rossi's Hot Cats and E-Cats are being manufactured, and as publication of third party reports are pending.

- Piantelli cold fusion does not work, the attack Andrea Rossi
- Andrea Rossi goes on the offensive after the uproar related to delays in independent tests. According to him, Francis Piantelli reactor does not work.

the most significant news is the launch of projects of applied

- A Cocoon of Technology
- by Bill Zebuhr - "One of the visions of cold fusion was to create small, self-contained energy sources that would cost very little to fuel and maintain. This vision has been a long time coming, but it will come at least in some form eventually. ... One of the greatest changes that a self-contained energy producer would facilitate would be the ability to live with greater independence from the grid structures of society. .

IAP Course on Cold Fusion 1.01 - Brief Summary of Week 1
Jan. 22, 2013 - On day 1,
attendees intently focus on Prof. Peter Hagelstein's lecture on palladium
hydrides and the role of the highly loaded lattice, beyond the miscibility
gap, as required for achieving successful deuterium fusion in cold fusion
(LANR) as initially (correctly) reported by Drs. Fleischmann and Pons in
Jan. 23, 2013 - On day 2, Prof. Peter Hagelstein presented
his original theory involving de novo helium formation in CF/LANR,
specifically at vacancies surrounded by loaded octahedral sites, and
made very clear -in that light- exactly why early attempts at reproduction
of CF were so difficult to achieve. The roles of loading (Volmer,
Tafel, and Heyrovsky reactions), chemical potential, sigma-bonded
hydrogen, codeposition, embedded atom theories, vacancy diffusion and
stabilization by loading, and the important differences between Pd and Ni
were also made clear; as he tied these together based upon years
of condensed matter data.
24, 2013 - On day 3, Prof.
Peter Hagelstein went through the experimental proof that de novo
He4 production is commensurate with excess energy (Miles, and Case, and
SRI experiments), and its rate of production is commensurate with excess
power (Gozzi). He discussed the role of cell temperature in positive
feedback in the CF/LANR system (Fleischmann, and Cravens, and Storms, and
Swartz); and then focused on the problem associated with helium occupancy
at the critical sites of CF/LANR in active systems. Moving through
Rutherford issues to the Hamiltonian, he also demonstrated the roles of
deuteron flux as well as loading. Finally, using an analogy similar to
Corkum's mechanism, he led the way towards the spin boson model of
Cohen-Tannoudji, but demonstrated exactly where it was insufficient
to explain CF/LANR in the absence of his discovery of the role of
destructive interference and other loss and dephasing issues.
Jan. 25, 2013
-On day 4, Prof. Hagelstein began with evidence, based upon PdD
and D2O as the detectors, that de novo Helium 4 must be
"borne" with energies below 10 keV or less, and that the upper
limit for neutron production must be less than 0.01 neutrons/joule.
Then, having demonstrated that destructive interference in the spin boson
model prevents its use in CF/LANR, he corrected that, and expanded the
Hamiltonian to now include coupling parameters and examined the quantum
exchange characteristics based upon coherence. Successful energy transfer
was demonstrated to require interactions of all the atoms in the lattice.
For further analysis, a donor-receptor system was then included. At that
point, he showed how the Coulomb barrier need not be overcome, because by
this method the factor is linear, rather than quadratic (needed for
classical analysis of D+D interactions). Supporting this analysis is
the Karabut data in glow discharge on Pd which yielded both diffuse
emissions and collimated x-radiation. with beamlets of energy bandwidth
which were consistent with the theory Prof. Hagelstein developed. Finally,
he used the Foldy-Wouthuysen rotational operation, and demonstrated how
this analysis is becoming assymptotic with what is being observed in CF/LANR,
with the use of his corrected condensed matter nuclear science (CMNS)
Hamiltonian. Finally, with the addition of nonlinear Rabi oscillations
(which yields Dicke superradiance), his model was shown to also be
near-complete and consistent with both the observed pulse
emissions and the wide bandwidth.
