Analysis of Fuel Samples from MFMP Reactor Runs Show ‘Statistically Significant’ Isotope Changes

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project has announced on its website and Facebook Page report results of isotopic analysis carried out by Marissa Little of EarthTech International, a private research organization in Austin Texas, which carries out independent laboratory testing.

Marissa Little of EarthTech has published a report of the testing they have done on samples that were taken from reactors used in tests carried out by the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project. Here’s a link to the Earth Tech report: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bz7lTfqkED9WQWVfV2d0T0l1bUE/view

The key data can be found in this table:

The findings are very interesting. Here is the conclusion from the report:

The change in Ni60/62 ratio from natural abundance in sample #21 and #59 is statistically significant. We cannot currently conceive of an isotope fractionation process that would have caused such a change in the experiment as we understand it. The sign of the change in the isotope ratio matches what was reported in the Lugano Report of the Rossi device – i.e., a relative increase in the amount of Ni62. However, the change in the MFMP samples was significantly less than in the Lugano Report. Barring deliberate fraud, these appear to be intriguing results and warrant further investigation.

A statistically significant isotopic shift is a very interesting result, especially as it seems to be along the same lines as the Lugano report, and gives evidence that there is some unusual activity taking place in the fuels that are being heated up inside these dogbone reactors.

    MURR, University of Missouri isotopic analysis of Ni and Li

    []=Project Dog Bone=[]

    The analysis is for Parkhomov Ni and LiAlH4 as well GS2 Ash and GS3
    Fuel/Ash (which contained Parkhomov Ni) and was conducted at http://acg.missouri.edu

    Results are

    We know from previous EDX that Parkhomov LiAlH4 contains Chlorine, but
    in terms of 7Li and 6Li, both US sourced and Parkhomov LiAlH4 both have
    near-natural isotopic ratios as given on wikipedia.

    Both were 7Li 92.6 : 6Li 7.4 to 1dp

    We thank the University of Missouri for conducting this Assay.

    We know there is some diffusion into the alumina, or at least deposition, from the “Bang!” fragment photos.

    It is Coorstek ultra pure Al2O3

    UPDATE2:

    Getting there – One party has said this

    “I have run the analyses and am still working on the calculations. Should have some results soon.

    The analyses that were contracted to be performed were a comparison of isotope ratios. Elemental concentration data from these analyses are limited and should be considered semi-quantitative.”

    UPDATE:

    One party says that the testing is still at the back of the que and will not be done this week.

    Another party says they are on holiday for two weeks!
