Update on Deuo Dynamics

A few days ago we discussed the work of Deuo Dynamics, a company who published a paper about a cold fusion diode that they claim was able to produce an electric charge from a palladium-deuterium diode with no electrical input. The paper cited was published back in 2008, and I was curious to find out the current status of the company. I contacted both partners, Fabrice David and John Giles, and they were able to provide me with an update of where things stand.

Mr. Giles explained that because the work of Deuo Dynamics was funded by solely the partners, they are not able to work full time in the field. He is currently working for W3G Marine, a Scottish marine engineering company, but says he hopes to pick up research in cold fusion next year. Mr. David said that there has been some work done with an American company (not named) on a nickel-hydrogen version of their diode which he says has produced “very interesting” results.

It’s not really possible to make an educated assessment of the work here, but I know that some readers were curious to know what Deuo Dynamics had been doing since they published the paper we mentioned — so I thought I’d provide this update.

    I have to wonder how long it would have been before the transistor was invented and developed into a commercial product, were it not for the work done by Bell Labs. Bell Labs once staffed by thousands of scientists working on pure and applied physics ended on this note: “On August 28, 2008, Alcatel-Lucent announced it was pulling out of basic science, material physics, and semiconductor research.”
    Where might LENR be today if a research organization like the former Bell Labs still existed? Are we in the “Dark Ages” of research where new discoveries are permitted to be born only if they meet the quarterly profit metrics of corporations reporting to Wall Street?

    yep, thanks buddy ,you will know where the new tech comes from, must keep up the vigil, and you have an ever watchful eye, for this stuff,

    BLP have been working with Ni / H long before Andrea, including direct electrical power output research (basically a fuel cell in context of their theory)

    They have 6 Ph.D.’s working for them, supposedly. It may be more worthwhile to follow up with them, rather than seeking answers in the Italian form of “I can’t tell any details, you know”. They were the first to peak my interest in this field, validations in 2008 / 9 convincing me it is real. This may have also been what spurred 60 minutes to ask Robert Duncan, who only afterwards became a staunch advocate for ‘the effect’.

    As repetitive as that one Italian is on answers, I’ll also say that with the multitude of parallel research efforts going on, a breakthrough will be accredited to multiple people who have released detailed scientific research. That Italian should take note, there are more manufacturers (and people) that would want to do away with his control in favor of openness, than he can count.

      That is no longer Rossi’s concern.

      He has already cached out & is only involved with the continued research & development of the E-cat. Chief Scientist over others expert in their field.

      Rossi’s partner now has the Technology & the Secrets. Rossi obtained a State of the Art Lab & all the toys that go with it. Any new toys he needs can be had in hours or a few days at most. He is no longer hamstrung by a lack of funds.

      Patents, Day to Day business is up to the partner.

      I thought BLP was going to develop a prototype of a 100W fuel cell in the beginning of 2013 and by the end of the year a 1000W model.
      I don’t hear from them anymore?

    Jim Rice:
    Thank you for your useful comment.
    I passed your interesting patent strategy considerations to the patent division of our Partner: I am sure their attorneys will consider them.
    I am no more involved in patent strategy: I must say that in this period I am working very well because I have no more to think about patents, production, daily business, etc etc, but only to the R&D and the science of the reactors. I do not know if the results of this work will be positive or negative, as I said many times we will share the information about the results at the end of this cycle of work, but one thing is sure: now I can work full time on the technology, at the maximum of my possibilities, integrated in a team of top level. I feel like ” playing in the majors”. I also am working in an area at very high technological level and strongly industrialized, where there is easy access to any necessary instrumentation we need: when I need some instrument I have just to ask for it, and I receive it in matter of days, if not hours.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.”

      Very encouraging. Very encouraging.

      Sorry artefact

      I posted before I saw your response.

    Mmmm – I wouldn’t say that ‘dynamic’ was an appropriate descriptor in this case…

    It seems a shame that this interesting research should apparently be allowed to wither on the vine – unless they are simply being reticent about the American connection (that seems a bit unlikely after a 5 year hiatus).

    Admin – thanks for taking the time to bring us up to date on this. Maybe in reply you could forward contact details for MFMP and perhaps some other individuals who have been working on similar ideas or are otherwise involved with CF development (Hagelstein, Cravens, McKubre et al.) in the hope that this might spark something off.

    Thanks for the follow up, Frank.
    That’s original reporting.
