    citing a number of errors Here is the Abstract and part of the conclusion 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 1260ºC 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 1260ºC and 1400ºC 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 In summary

    2014 Reporter Mats Lewan of the Ny Teknik magazine has published a book about the cold fusion researcher Andrea Rossi The book is titled An Impossible Invention It is available in English Swedish and Italian You can read the first chapter or order the book here Nobel Laureate Brian Josephson published a comment at Nature com describing the book The highlight of the week was the publication of Mats Lewan s book An Impossible Invention subtitled The true story of the energy source that could change the world The author a science and technology writer has been investigating the controversial Rossi reactor or E cat in depth in the 3 years since its initial presentation in Bologna in January 2011 Besides following the course of developments in detail Lewan gives much attention to the question of whether the device is genuine or whether fraud is involved One important event was a long period investigation by ELFORSK published at arXiv 1305 3913 providing strong evidence of the production of anomalous heat This fascinating book provides the answers to many questions about the E cat and should be read by all skeptics Quoted in full here In his blog about the book Lewan revealed that the video demonstration test performed by Defkalion Green Technologies during the ICCF18 conference in July 2013 was invalid The flow rate was measured incorrectly because the flow meter was affected by backflow Subsequent tests showed that the meter sometimes measured as much as 1 L min when the valve was closed and flow was zero The instruments indicate spurious excess heat of up to 17 kW where the actual power is 2 5 kW The video demonstration test was performed in Italy by a join venture company Defkalion Europe DE Luca Gamberale of DE discovered the problems
