Today, a Key Day in History ...LENR Confirmed

The second independent E-cat reactor test was run during March 2014 (actually a 32 day run.) - by Jim Sweeney, Retired

London - We live in intesting times; it's just sad that there is so much stress and strife in so many parts of the world. Suddenly there is new energy ...and hope. Indeed, the high temperatures achieved in the test run augurs well for pollution-free distributed electricity generation, and for the transmutation of legacy radioactive wastes.

The second independent E-cat reactor test was run during March 2014 (actually a 32 day run.)

KEY FINDINGS

A COP of 3.2 to 3.6 over a period of 32 days, and a substantial isotopic change in nickel and lithium.

Here is the abstract released on October 8, 2014:

ABSTRACT

New results are presented from an extended experimental investigation of anomalous heat production in a special type of reactor tube operating at high temperatures. The reactor, named E-Cat, is charged with a small amount of hydrogen-loaded nickel powder plus some additives, mainly Lithium. The reaction is primarily initiated by heat from resistor coils around the reactor tube. Measurements of the radiated power from the reactor were performed with high-resolution thermal imaging cameras. The measurements of electrical power input were performed with a large bandwidth three- phase power analyzer. Data were collected during 32 days of running in March 2014. The reactor operating point was set to about 1260 ºC in the first half of the run, and at about 1400 °C in the second half. The measured energy balance between input and output heat yielded a COP factor of about 3.2 and 3.6 for the 1260 ºC and 1400 ºC runs, respectively. The total net energy obtained during the 32 days run was about 1.5 MWh. This amount of energy is far more than can be obtained from any known chemical sources in the small reactor volume. A sample of the fuel was carefully examined with respect to its isotopic composition before the run and after the run, using several standard methods: XPS, EDS, SIMS, ICP-MS and ICP-AES. The isotope composition in Lithium and Nickel was found to agree with the natural composition before the run, while after the run it was found to have changed substantially. Nuclear reactions are therefore indicated to be present in the run process, which however is hard to reconcile with the fact that no radioactivity was detected outside the reactor during the run
