Report Disclaimer:



Cylinder made with proper material:

length 30 mm
diam 1 mm
Energy produced: 100 Wh/h
Energy consumed: 0.5 Wh/h
Light produced (percentage of the energy produced): 0-50%
Electric energy produced: 0-10%
Heat produced: 0- 100%
Light, energy and heat can be modulated to modulate the percentages within the limits above listed, provided the combined percentages must total 100%.

Extremely interesting is the blue light, the analysis of which has resolved theoretical problems related to the roots of the effect.

Temperature on the surface of the QuarkX: more than 1,500*C
Note: 2 other QuarkX put in analogous situation gave the same results.

ECAT Quark X preliminary report findings

Description of the photo:

Photo of the heat exchanger pipe that contains the QuarkX: the light spot is through a light eye holed in the pipe. The blue halo from the hole has been analyzed and has made possible to understand the theoretical roots of the effect: the QuarkX is inside the pipe .

NOTE: THE PHOTO HAS BEEN MANIPULATED TO FORBID HIGH DEFINITION. The colors have been partially obscured. The light is much more intense.

    This is very similar to the light from a lamp or Nernst Auer cap for gas glow lampy. May be Rossi ability to use thorium oxide mixed with yttrium for microwave excitation reaction.

    Does anyone have an opinion on what Butch says.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I have analized the blue halo of the photo you published after the test with the QuarkX and I understand perfectly : congratulations, you really made it.
    I also understand what you mean when you say that theoretical progress has been made. The photo is absolutely genuine, even if you made it in low definition format.

    Thank you,

    It reminds peeping through the keyhole. Nothing is clear except for a large source of 1500 Celsius.

  • Stephen

    It seems to me that there is more of the blue aura at the top of the picture than on either side or below the central bright spot.

    If it was due to prompt radiation from high energy particles may be would expect a more symmetrical effect maybe a circular halo?

    Was any such circular halo seen in any of the processed images?

    Assuming the top of the picture is up. Would this imply we have a plume of radiant gas that is either hotter or lighter than the surrounding air?

    Could ionized or highly excited hydrogen, nitrogen or oxygen (O+ for example) behave like this and emit balmer emissions of this colour during the decay? If so could lower energy red balmer emissions be suppressed or forbidden due to some reason?

    Would protons generated directly from the device or neutron decay generate this colour radiation if they capture an electron to form hydrogen gas?

    If atomic hydrogen forms H2 are any emissions produced?

    If hydrogen gas burns in Oxygen does it emit this colour?

    Could Balmer emission from Helium radiate at these wave lengths?

    • Stephen

      I suppose if the emission is from Balmer emissions from an excited gas and if there is a different latency with the emissions at different frequencies there might be a signature in the image as the gas disperses.

      If we imagine the elements in the surrounding air for example Nitrogen gas is being excited directly in front of the hole by radiation perhaps by particles or XRays or UV emission from the device these then these excited atoms disperse in the air surrounding the hole emitting Balmer emissions as they disperse. perhaps due to latency in the emissions red emissions occur first and closer to the hole then higher energy blue emissions occur later at a greater dispersion distance. The colour of these emissions and dispersion distance would maybe say something about which elements in the air were excited and the maximum excitement energy of the original stimulation as well.

      Would by interesting if Lyman series emissions are also present as I suppose this may be a consequence of auger electron emissions.

    Dear Andrea,

    I think John Atkinson had an interesting question. Where I live, power goes down very frequently, sometimes for days.

    1) If you’re running a quark, and the power goes down, will it just turn off safely?

    2) If power is out for a few days, can you run a quark on back up generator?

    3) can you run it on a backup battery system safely?

    4) If yes to 3, can you use the same Quark to charge the battery it is running on?

    5) If no to 4, can you run a quark on battery, use it to charge a second battery, and switch batteries when needed?

    Obviously with John Atkinson I was joking.
    Surely a back up generator resolves the problem.
    The answer is yes to the questions 1 2 3 4.
    Warm Regards,

    Rossi could set up a black box demo that can drive a load (light bulb) to prove that the Quark can produce more power than any battery can store.

    If the blue light were caused by electrons passing through a small hole in the metal protection shield, pin hole interference pattern would be seen.

    Yet, there does look like some of the light was produced outside of the hole.

    Photo Courtesy of Engineer 48 shows the following.

    There does look like there is light production outside of the protection shield but the means of production is not electrons. The cause looks like it is activating at random over a wide spread distance after it has been dispersed through the pinhole and mixed in the air. Muons are a possible cause or exotic neutral particles(ENP) might be doing it. These ENP ball lightning like objects are what Fabiani is describing when he talks about points of light melting down a Rossi reactor. Rossi said that not only intense light must be shielded but also other things. ENP might be produced and released in abundance in the Quark reactor. There is some sort of reactive element coming out of that reactor.

    Frank Acland:
    4. You say the photo was taken through a hole in a pipe — are the QuarkXs enclosed in a pipe during normal operation to provide eye protection?


    4- to provide protection not just to the eyes


    Is he going to be dealing quark-x’s any time soon? Independent labs should buy them and test them. I expect they wont be sold in the time frame he said they will and there will be more controversy.

    In these 2 images, attached, only the brightest fully saturated pixels are shown.
    In one image the Blue pixels were removed to aid study of the central Pink and Red pixels.

    Just denoting my joy!!
    !i!i!i!i!i How’s that for Matchstick size?

  • Pweet

    No. I wouldn’t bother, even though I know he would be quite happy to do so.
    I recall that there were claims his original ecat technology was a rip off of earlier lenr tech from others using Focardi as a conduit.
    Lots of technology is based on ideas of others and in the event that something actually comes of it, the original source is rarely recognized.
    I was amazed at the similarity between the early microsoft DOS and the previous supposedly unrelated CPM operating system. Two systems which did the same job in the same way with virtually a duplicate command set, but two different designers, supposedly.
    I don’t think so.

    Ovidiu Herlea:
    Thank you for the suggestion: I need to add a Physicist specialized in optics and photonics to the Team.
    Warm Regards,

    Maybe the blue light of the QuarkX has finally shown Rossi the proper path to valid LENR theory. We can only hope…

    • tlp

      The COP of around 125 BLP measured in their latest published video demo is very well inline with their theoretical calculations, how much predicted type of hydrino reactions yield energy.
      In two weeks at their demo event (28th June) Mills is going to tell more about this.

      • builditnow

        I’d be thrilled if BLP is on to something, however, watching their video’s, I’m so unconvinced by the people surrounding Mills, totally unimpressive yes men. Mills puts on a master display of puffed up ego. The tests are “so” unconvincing done by very unconvincing people. It puts my belief factor at 1% probably true. Hope I’m wrong, not holding my breath.

      • Axil Axil

        Please write an informative post with links to Mills discussions here on ECW so we can discuss this.

        • tlp

          gives upper limit for the COP:
          “The nascent H2O molecule formed by an oxidation reaction of OH- at a hydrogen anode is predicted to serve as a catalyst to form H (1 / 4) with an energy release of 204 eV compared to the 1.48 eV required to produce H from electrolysis of H2O. ”

          204/1.48 = 138

  • However many times it takes.

    Whatever the truth turns out to be in this incredible drama, I am its staunch ally and advocate.
