There has been considerable interest in the news earlier this week published in Cold Fusion Times of the demonstration of cold fusion at a short course taught by Dr. Peter Hagelstein at MIT. Dr. Mitchell Swartz of JET Energy Inc. was invited to present to the class, and Cold Fusion Times (which is owned by Mitchell Swartz) reported that the “JET Energy NANOR(TM) demonstrated a significant energy gain greater than 10, much larger than the previous open demonstration.”
It has been difficult to find out more details about what was presented at the course. Since the original report there have been some snippets of new information have been posted on various web sites — but the information provided cannot be fully sourced.
Cold Fusion Now stated on February 2 that, “The NANOR used in the open MIT Demonstration is a ZrO2-PdD Cold Fusion/LANR solid state quantum electronic device – now ongoing for five days straight!”
New Energy Times today reports that an unnamed LENR researcher reported “that the peak power output Swartz measured in that experiment was
18 milliWatts.” [Correction -- New Energy Times now reports a source as saying that the output was 80 milliwatts]
Infinite Energy Magazine reports that the information presented by Dr. Swarz was to be “experimental results showing excess power in PdD and NiH systems, with a particular focus on experiments he has conducted.”
I have tried to contact both Drs. Swartz and Hagelstein for more information about the event, but without success. If there is anyone reading this who may have attended the event who can provide more information, please feel free to contact E-Cat World –there’s lots of interest in this topic.
UPDATE: An anonymous source has sent New Energy Times more of JET Energy’s data. This source is quoted as saying ““When you look at the data, you can see, barely, a 1 degree C temperature rise for about three minutes, using about 12 mW of input power to produce less than 100 milliwatts of heat.” This source provided New Energy Times with a chart which shows input power and energy produced in the JET system.
