Alexander Parkhomov Paper Published in the International Journal of Unconventional Science

Thanks to David Nygren of the LENR-Forum for passing this information along to me.

A paper by Alexander Parkhomov titled “Investigation of the heat generator similar to Rossi reactor” has been published in the International Journal of Unconventional Science, a Russian/English language online journal published by the Moscow-based Association of Unconventional Science This journal is described on its website as follows:

“International Journal of Unconventional Science (IJUS) is a peer-reviewed, electronic journal that publishes original and high-quality research papers, surveys, reviews and letters on topics broadly related to boundary phenomena of quantum physics, information science, energy, biophysics, medicine, psychology and other disciplines. It supports exchange of ideas and popularization of new interdisciplinary and boundary areas of modern science.”

Most of the data contained in the article has been published previously in reports by Alexander Parkhomov, and will be familiar to many readers here. The abstract reads:

This paper describes development and tests of a device that is similar to the well-known high-temperature Rossi reactor. The experiments confirmed that at the temperature about 1100˚C and more this device produces more energy than it consumes. Performed measurements demonstrated no ionized radiation above the background level from the working reactor.

The paper reports on two experiments, the first one carried out on December 12, 2014, and the second on January 18, 2015. Below are tables summarizing the results for each test.

I somehow doubt that an article published in this journal is going to raise the profile of the experiment in the eyes of the mainstream scientific community, but it’s nice to see Parkhomov’s work in a journal article format, and this will be a very useful reference for researchers and experimenters.

    Yes, just saw it.

    Reason: Low quality of the journal.

    In the discussion section they gossip viciously about it.

    I just had a quick look at the tables above, and there still is what looks as mistakes in the calculations, even as this is the published version. The calculated input energy in joules for the second tables seems to be wrong. Also it is a bit surprising that the first table uses a delta T of the water of 13 degrees, and the second one 50 degrees.

    The choice of values for the heat leakage through the insulation does not follow the table published before as notes from the visit. This is troubling me, as this leakage seems to be used as a fudge factor.

    I’ve thought another angle to make the public aware Cold Fusion/LENR now exists is to have it verified on a public sitcom like “Big Bang Theory”. I’ve thought that Chuck Lorre Productions might jump at an idea for free publicity which would occur if “Sheldon Cooper” could develop and prove LENR.

    It is a win-win for them to get free publicity and for us to get another shake in the public eye for our LENR goals.

    I sent a letter to Bill Gates last Year and now he is involved so maybe some of my campaigning has paid off.

    Sadly though there is no easy way to contact Chuck Lorre. Cannot find his email, etc.

    I suppose a well written and directed letter could persuade him through snail mail if it can get past a few assistants, but free publicity might be financial enough to reach him.

    Just a unique way of presenting LENR to the world Aside from Conventional or unconventional science Journals.

    Yay or Nay?

      Maybe instead of the NIF in the new Enterprise warp core, the 1MW plant should be used…

    I just added a small paragraph about the paper in the german wikipedia article about “kalte fusion” (cold fusion).

    It was edited two times for minor typo fixes, but not declined yet! A premiere at wikipedia!

    Wonderful to see the free Russian press at work while the censored West hides and cowers under the dictatorial regime that it has become.
    I wonder when and if any UK, US, science comics are ever going to publish, it all makes the slight delay in the church excepting a heliocentric solar system look quite normal for today.
    Western science has much to answer for if Cold Fusion is successful in being able to supply power for small water cleansing units etc.
    The death toll when calculated will be entirely the responsibility of those who have in any way contributed to the cover-up.

    • Gerrit

      similar journals exist in the “censored West” also. See for instance

      http://www.scientificexploration.org/journal/

      The Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE) is a leading professional organization of scientists and scholars who study unusual and unexplained phenomena.

      • georgehants

        Gerrit, good to see, so we do have one True Brave publication that does not cower beneath the jackboots of the establishment.
        One honest report in a fringe organ while the rest of the scientific world wears tinfoil hats and runs around screaming, crackpot, beyond science, snake-oil, UFO’s can’t exist etc. etc.

            Gerrit, now you are talking, the Grail is on my daily read list, more True and Honest science there than in all the Journals combined.

        Correct, the “fringe people” are everywhere. They are not censored, just ignored, its effective because masses believe the “authorities” being incapable of judging themselves.
        Pearlab was the best in west.
        http://www.princeton.edu/~pear/press-statement.html
        Their evidences of “consciousness anomalies” are million times better than the so called “proofs” of black holes, big bang and higgs boson etc. But obviously these scientific achievements are ignored as they have little monetary or military value.
        They day the Science got equated with a blind faith in materialism, it got corrupted and most of the fundamental progress has stopped. This started with the denial of QM, the fact that matter does not exist and is a product of consciousness. Just imagine if the world accepts the facts and starts researching in this area, we would become gods in no time. Sadly, the animal in us is terrified of reality somehow and wants to cling to old ideas and narrow-minded “science” .

        • georgehants

          Sanjeev Wonderful Truthful comment.
          I have not looked it up but am “sure” that your quote was made by the great Fred Hoyle, will check later.

          • Sanjeev

            Google search shows that its by Tesla. I could not find the original text or book’s title where it appears, but its very popular.

            • georgehants

              Sanjeev, I will do more investigation but I think somebody is trying to pinch Fred’s words Ha.

                I see. There are many good quotes on that link, thanks.

          Nice, Sanjeev. I am reminded of the wonderful experiments with structured water where they take one row of carrots and water them with regular tap water and the other row and water them with so-called “structured” water. Huge and obvious difference, and a very easily repeatable experiment.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnPpJApNt5g

          But mainstream scientists won’t touch it. There is something about anything that is alive or anything that they can’t hit with a hammer or anything dealing with living systems or anything that might be icky that they just don’t seem to like. It has nothing to do with science.

          But farmers like it. I am going to show a farmer this afternoon evidence that structured water can help him.

          • Sanjeev

            They do not touch Placebo also, but it works and everyone uses it without question !
            So in the end, opinions do not matter, it should work and if the effect you mention works in practical situations, then who cares what materialists think about it.

  • Svein Arild Utne

    From Alexander Parkhomovs tests, it looks like the alumina has melted. If the melting
    point is over 2040 degrees Celsius, maybe we need to find a way to distribute
    the heat, so heat spots will not ruin the reactor.

    Tungsten has a melting point of 3422 degrees Celsius. If we could get steel wool made in
    tungsten like a cylinder, with the powder inside and the alumina as a larger
    cylinder on the outside of the tungsten wool. Then the heat will be distributed
    to a larger area before reaching the walls of the alumina.

    • Pekka Janhunen

      For stability, the cooling power should have a steeper dependence on T than the anomalous process itself. Radiative cooling power goes a T^4, while heat flux due to thermal gradient goes only linearly with T. So for thermal stability, the nickel should have good thermal contact with the radiating surface.

      • Svein Arild Utne

        Maybe hotspots and temperature control for stability are to different aspects. So
        maybe the tungsten will prevent hotspots from melting the alumina, but the regulation
        of heat might be more difficult, but maybe still possible. So maybe only one layer of tungsten will be best.

        • Nicholas Chandler-Yates

          Tungsten will block/absorb RF and magnetic effects of coil heating, which may or may not be essential to the reaction. This is probably why rossi stuck with alumina for the hot cat reactor

  • Sanjeev

    It will push his experiment more into the realm of fringe. But the plus side is, it will encourage many more to try the experiment. Which is good.
    There are probably about 100 replications going on in Russia at this time (Ref: Robert Greenyer’s comment on FB) and this will add more fuel to the fire.

  • bachcole

    Every little bit helps, and I am not sure that it is a little. A publication like this will have a bigger impact in countries other than the USA/UK. Although, I would still give it a moderate impact.
