  • Washington Post, Time and others attack cold fusion
    researchers at the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division at China Lake Shell Amoco SRI Texas A M Los Alamos Mitsubishi Res Center BARC Bombay Tsinghua U and over a hundred other world class laboratories Several researchers sent messages to Prof Kevles and to the Washington Post protesting these statements The Post has not responded The Yale Daily News student newspaper printed a letter from E Storms protesting Kevles remarks and pointing out that cold fusion may become an important source of energy Kevles responded by saying that only Fleischmann and Pons are guilty of scientific misdeeds and that the cold fusion research performed after they published had nothing to do with them Pons and Fleischmann s initial published paper about their research lacked essential raw data and experimental details When asked to supply their scientific colleagues with more information they persistently refused Other scientists trying to replicate their experiments could only guess at the apparatus they had used Eventually their particular claims were refuted as theoretically unfounded and without experimental support This is the incident I referred to in my article and it has altogether nothing to do with research since in this field Cold fusion researchers replicated the Fleischmann Pons experiment and cited the original paper in their published replications so it makes no sense to say their work has altogether nothing to do with this research Furthermore Fleischmann and Pons did not hide their work but on the contrary they assisted others in this field by supplying palladium samples and Fleischmann co authored papers with others Other researchers in this field hold Fleischmann and Pons in the highest regard and they think that Kelves should apologize for calling their actions misdeeds Commentators in Time magazine the Guardian and elsewhere have made similar comparisons M D Lemonick wrote in Time It wouldn t be the first time In 1996 chemists from the University of Utah claimed they had discovered cold fusion They hadn t it turned out but a combination of ambition fear of competition and pressure from the university led them to announce the discovery before they had any proof We contacted the author and informed him that the date was 1989 and that the claims were subsequently replicated by hundreds of researchers and these replications were published in the peer reviewed literature We suggested he should review the relevant literature before commenting on the research Lemonick responded with a series of unfounded and increasingly bizarre statements He said that Fleischmann and Pons wouldn t even let anyone see their experimental apparatus We pointed out this cannot be true because as noted above they provided samples of material and they co authored papers with other researchers Lemonick eventually conceded that the other researchers have made claims but he said It may be that others have produced cold fusion since but that s not the same thing We asked him what he meant by this in view of the fact that the same materials and techniques are used

  • LENR-CANR welcomes a growing international audience
    of papers During the four weeks from October 21 through November 18 visitors came from 115 different countries and 60 of the traffic was outside the U S Cold fusion research has been international from the beginning with vital contributions from India Italy France China Japan Russia and many other countries Regular international conferences provide a forum for the work to be shared and we are delighted to make this information more widely available The most recent international conference ICCF12 was held on November 27 2005 See http iccf12 org We have authors from dozens of countries and we seek to expand this circle of contributors We recently uploaded a review by Iyengar et al describing early research in India which produced some of the most compelling results ever published We recently welcomed our first author from Iran F Amini Most of our papers are in English but we have a small number in other languages including French German Italian Portuguese and Spanish and we welcome more contributions in other languages We are happy to assist and edit papers for authors who are not native speakers of English We have translated several papers from Japanese into English LENR CANR has long maintained a presence in other countries even places where the Internet is slow and expensive People in China sometimes have difficulty reaching the U S but thousands of them have been able to reach us thanks to Prof Li who operates a mirror site copy of LENR CANR at Tsinghua U China s most prestigious technical university We just added two new papers by Li et al including our first paper in Chinese a 1990 Introduction to Cold Fusion and a technical review A Chinese View on Summary of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science from the September 2004 issue of

  • Nature Attacks Cold Fusion Again
    Direct access to Library folder Library Guide Nature Attacks Cold Fusion Again October 2 2005 Leading scientific journals and magazines such as Nature and Scientific American have attacked cold fusion many times Most recently in October 2005 Nature published a News Feature titled Physics Far from the frontier This describes S Putterman s work on sonofusion It includes the following paragraph The problem with reports of tabletop fusion is that for most scientists they evoke memories of the notorious and now largely discredited cold fusion claim made by two chemists in 1989 The chemists claimed they could achieve nuclear fusion reactions well below the extreme temperatures predicted by theorists and that these reactions could be used as a source of unlimited energy A March 2005 attack by the Scientific American is described below Letters to us from the previous and present editors of the Scientific American can be found here The editor says that he has not read any papers about cold fusion and he does not intend to read any Nature never says why cold fusion should be considered notorious or who has discredited it Their comments have always been ad hominem ridicule or hearsay Since 1989 cold fusion has been replicated hundreds of times in experiments published in some of the world s leading peer reviewed electrochemical and physics journals Positive results have been published by leading laboratories such as Los Alamos China Lake and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Many results have been at a very high signal to noise ratios By traditional standards cold fusion has been proved beyond a reasonable doubt Yet since 1989 journals such as Nature and Scientific American have not published a single word acknowledging the existence of any of these experiments They have never critiqued the scientific content of an experiment or pointed

  • Haiko Lietz writes in Telepolis about Taleyarkhan’s sonofusion, and cold fusion
    the sonofusion experiments performed by Rusi Taleyarkhan et al We are thinking about adding material about this research but we have hesitated because it seems beyond the scope of our subject matter We consider these experiments interesting and the research appears to be skillful careful and convincing We are pleased to that this innovative method of producing nuclear fusion on a microscopic scale has attracted serious attention from the scientific mainstream and the press The reactions reported by Taleyarkhan appear to be a form of high energy plasma fusion that occurs in cavitation bubbles in the fluid Cold fusion on the other hand is a low energy reaction that occurs in a metal lattice The Taleyarkhan effect produces a neutron tritium ratio of 1 2 which is close to conventional plasma fusion n t 1 whereas cold fusion produces a ratio of roughly 10 9 There are other important differences Cold fusion produces far more concentrated excess heat so it seems more likely to become a practical source of useful energy Cold fusion appears to be a more radical departure from textbook expectations about fusion Cold fusion has been replicated hundreds of times the Taleyarkhan effect has only been replicated once so far by Xu and Butt Purdue This is no reflection on the quality of Taleyarkhan s work only a few people have undertaken replications Despite these differences Taleyarkhan s research is important and it bears watching so even though it is somewhat off topic we may add material about it soon One method of doing cold fusion bears a passing resemblance to the Taleyarkhan experiment When cavitation induced bubbles collapse near the surface of metal they can inject the plasma into the metal lattice triggering cold fusion This technique has been pioneered by R Stringham in his papers
