National Instruments Provides Tools for Cold Fusion Researchers

National Instruments is providing tools and equipment for cold fusion researchers to help them understand the phenomenon. Although greater precision and accuracy in testing is a very good thing, it should be clarified that there is no doubt that cold fusion has already been proven to be a real phenomenon.

By Hank Mills with Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News

National Instruments is providing tools for LENR researchers so they can take more precise and accurate measurements.

A PDF file (4 Mb) has been posted that shows the slides that were presented in a talk given by Dr Stefano Concezzi, Director of Science and Big Physics for National Instruments. In the conclusion, he stated: 

"There is an unknown physical event and there is a need of better measurements and control tools. NI is playing a role in accelerating innovation and discovery."

In the slides, some details are provided about National Instruments, such as how no one sector takes up more than 15% of their business. They also provide a list of the cold fusion researchers they are providing with tools and technology.

  • Prof. Kim - Purdue University
    (Bode-Einstein Condensate)
  • Prof. Hagelstein – MIT
    (Incl. Quantum Field Theory)
  • Dr. Mace – LANL
    (Transfer matrices, QFT)
  • Prof. Duncan - University of Missouri
  • Prof. Levi – University of Bologna
  • Prof. Violante – ENEA
  • Other potential activities with SRI, NRL, INFN, Univ. of Kobe, Univ. of Osaka, UT at Austin, CEA.

Who is NI?

National Instruments, headquartered in Austin, Texas, USA, was established in 1976, and conducts global operations in 41 countries, with over 5,000 employees. In 2010, the company sold products to more than 30,000 companies in 91 countries with revenues of $860 million. (Wikipedia) Concezzi said that their customers include Boeing and Airbus, and that they have employees separated who are working on competitor technologies so that there is not a conflict of interest.

Fortune magazine has recognized NI in its list of "100 Best Companies to Work For" for the past 12 consecutive years. Their website presently lists 111 job openings.

According to their website:

National Instruments transforms the way engineers and scientists around the world design, prototype, and deploy systems for test, control, and embedded design applications. Using NI open graphical programming software and modular hardware, customers at more than 30,000 companies annually simplify development, increase productivity, and dramatically reduce time to market. From testing next-generation gaming systems to creating breakthrough medical devices, NI customers continuously develop innovative technologies that impact millions of people.

Their "Big Physics" page mentions that they are involved in providing instrumentation solutions to projects including particle accelerators, fusion reactors, and telescopes. Their fusion page says: 

LabVIEW is used for a tokamak control system"At the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Garching, Germany, researchers implemented a tokamak control system to more effectively confine plasma. For the primary processing, they developed a LabVIEW application, which split up matrix multiplication operations using a data parallelism technique on an octal-core system. Researchers installed a hard real-time operating system (OS) with symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) support on an off-the-system based on an Intel multicore architecture. Researchers on the project were able to speed up the matrix multiplication operations by a factor of five while meeting the 1 ms real-time control loop rate."

Cold Fusion Has Already Been Proven

There have been countless tests of cold fusion systems since 1989, when Pons and Fleischmann made their announcement that nuclear reactions could take place at low temperatures. The testing that has taken place since then has proven beyond any doubt whatsoever that cold fusion or LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions) is a real phenomenon. In the past year or two, it has also been revealed that cold fusion systems with robust and practical amounts of output also exist. To help facilitate the testing that is taking place today, National Instruments is providing equipment and technology to many of the top researchers in the cold fusion field. The technology and tools being provided should allow for a greater understanding of the phenomenon.

With the top notch tools being provided by National Instruments, it is expected that a more full characterization of the excess heat phenomenon can be achieved. In addition, the measurements made are expected to be more precise and accurate than ever before. Although such improved accuracy and precision will aid the field, it should be remembered that this technology is not needed to verify that cold fusion is a real phenomenon. The countless (thousands and thousands) of tests performed over the past twenty plus years already have proven the reality of cold fusion. 

One interesting thing to note is that Dr. Levi of the University of Bologna is being provided with equipment by NI. As many should know, he participated in multiple tests of the E-Cat (Energy Catalyzer) in 2011, and it is speculated he may be continuing to test the technology. Although the tests that have already been performed prove beyond any reasonable doubt the E-Cat technology produces excess heat -- except perhaps in the opinion of the most cynical of skeptics -- these tools could allow for more precise measurements to be taken. They may also allow for a more full understanding of the processes taking place inside of the reactor. 

Of course, the skeptics will scream and howl that the tests of the E-Cat that have been conducted so far have proven nothing. They will even claim that they were not tests at all, but only demonstrations. The fact is that many different scientists and organizations have tested E-Cat units and have proven that they do produce huge amounts of excess energy. Perhaps some of the tests may not have been setup to be as extremely precise as super skeptical academics would like. But from an engineering perspective, they were more than good enough to show kilowatts of excess power. When tests show only a hundred watts in and 130 kilowatts coming out, that is clear and indisputable evidence that the E-Cat can produce massive excess heat.

I think it is fantastic that NI is providing tools for LENR researchers so they can take more precise and accurate measurements. My hope is that more companies will follow their industry-leading example.

NOTE: NOTE: We have replaced the previous Echo comment service with Disqus. The old Echo database of comments has now been imported into Disqus. The old comments are loaded in date received order. This will mean that if say, someone posted a reply a week after a comment was posted, then it will appear before the original post does (in other words jumbling up will occur in the normal Parent/Child pattern of replies) and comments will not follow a logical order. However, comments you have made/make in Disqus since the changeover date will appear in the normal order of appearance.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
