Brilliant Light Power, Inc. Announces the Validation of the Generation of over a Million of Watts of Power in the Volume of a Coffee Cup from the Conversion of Water Fuel to a New Form of Hydrogen (Press Release)

The following press release was published by Brilliant Light Power:

CRANBURY, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Brilliant Light Power, Inc. (BrLP) announced today that it has continuously generated over a million watts of power from a new primary source until the cell vaporized from the intense heat. The power released by the conversion of hydrogen atoms from water molecules into a lower energy form called “Hydrino” or dark matter is manifest as brilliant-light emitting plasma wherein the light is uniquely and extraordinarily essentially all high-energy light in the extreme ultraviolet. Using four cross-confirming methodologies, five validators have confirmed over a million watts of plasma power developed by BrLP’s so-called SunCell® at power gains of over 100 times the power to ignite the Hydrino reaction, and at power densities higher than any previously known energy source. Dr. Randy Booker, physics professor and former Physics Department Chairman at University of North Carolina-Ashville said, “The power was measured using two optical power measurements involving three sophisticated spectrometers calibrated against a National Institute of Science and Technology traceable standard and two thermal methods involving a commercial calorimeter and the rate of the rise of the water coolant temperature of the SunCell®. All four methodologies cross-confirmed the production of megawatt scale power that was continuous in the case of the SunCell® with spectacular commercial potential. Moreover, the unique and characteristic spectrum from the optical tests of essentially purely high energy light emission over a predicted range confirms the hydrino reaction as the source of the power.”

BrLP subsequently held an invitation demonstration event on June 28, 2016 for about 50 guests from industry and academia wherein BrLP presented live demonstrations of the enormous power density and power gain by multiple methods. BrLP also presented an engineered SunCell®prototype having no moving parts that it believes is capable of producing 125 kW of electricity. BrLP anticipates having field trials in 2017 supported by several current engineering firm and manufacturer partners. It comprises refractory materials capable of the intense heat wherein the SunCell’s® enormous power density heats a blackbody radiator to incandescent temperatures to produce the effect of thousands of halogen light bulbs, and the light is converted to electricity with so-called concentrator photovoltaic cells that receive the light from the blackbody radiator and operate at incident light intensities of over one thousand times that of sunlight. Details of the SunCell®, the BlackLight Process, the video and slide presentation from the June 28, 2016 demonstrations, background theory, journal publications, and other support materials are available on the BrLP webpage (

BrLP’s safe, non-polluting power-producing system catalytically converts the hydrogen of the H2O-based solid fuel into a non-polluting product, Hydrino, by allowing the electrons to fall to smaller radii around the nucleus. The energy release is over 200 times that of burning the equivalent amount of hydrogen with oxygen. Due to this extraordinary energy release, H2O may serve as the source of hydrogen fuel to form Hydrinos and oxygen. Moreover, the SunCell® is compact, light-weight and autonomous with a projected capital cost of 1% to 10% that of any other form of power. The anticipated cost is so low that BrLP intends to provide autonomous individual power for essentially all stationary and motive applications untethered to the grid or any fuels infrastructure. Dr. Mills announced, “This is the end of the age of fire, the internal combustion engine, and centralized power and fuels.”

“The commercial potential for SunCell® technology is enormous. The promise of a cheap, clean and unlimited source of electric power is on the verge of commercialization. SunCell® components are based on well-known technologies from electrical lighting, photovoltaic, semiconductor, refractory and aerospace industries, and use widely available materials. What is new is Brilliant Light Power’s theoretical and experimental breakthroughs, protected by patents and proprietary know-how. Albert Einstein is looking down, smiling: I told you so, He does not play dice,” said Former World Bank manager Gerhard Pohl. Dr. Joseph Renick, former Chief Scientist at Applied Research Associates added, “It is understandable why even the best of scientists have difficulty taking seriously that which has been accomplished by Dr. Mills and his team at Brilliant Light Power because of how completely it transforms our understanding of atomic and molecular structure, dispels all of the strangeness associated with quantum theory so cherished by quantum physicists and chemists and then to boot delivers to mankind a new source of essentially unlimited inexpensive clean energy. The novel techniques, materials and processes developed by BrLP in the last few years are making this new source of energy a reality for all of mankind. The rest, however painful it will be for many in the natural sciences, will follow.”

One of the validators, Bucknell Professor Dr. Peter Mark Jansson PE remarked, “An objective review of the progress BrLP has made over the past decade in the development of their proprietary hydrogen-based technology indicates that they have achieved an understanding of the fundamental parameters that must be controlled to create a sustainable and energetic reaction of their atomic hydrogen fuel and catalysts. They have made landmark progress in creating demonstration devices that prove the concept of their generation technology with promise of becoming continuously operating prototypes in the near future. The creation of these consistently replicable experiments where input power is multiplied by 65 to 150 times is a remarkable achievement. The input power for these respective experiments was 8.02 kW and 10.45 kW with corresponding output power peaks reaching as high as 521 kW and 1.56 MW. Although these energy bursts were on the order of 1 to 3 minutes in duration I was able to observe a more continuous, sustainable reaction experiment that lasted over 7 minutes, other validators were able to observe operating SunCells® for over 30 minutes in duration.” Dr. K.V. Ramanujachary, Rowan University Meritorious Professor of Chemistry and Material Science, added that from his independent tests he finds, “the developments truly impressive and extremely important. I believe that the technology is amenable for making large-scale devices as easily as a portable one. This is what makes it very attractive.”

Regarding the versatility of power and unsurpassed logistical advantages, David Bennett, former Proterra CEO and former President of Eaton Vehicle Group, Asia Pacific said, “Transportation technology has relied on burning something – oil, coal, natural gas, for over a century. The transition to alternative energy is often considered a niche, futuristic, and even inconsequential solution. The SunCell® presents the possibilities to make this transition to a new energy era a reality.” He further emphasized, “The SunCell® is a relatively simple system that catalytically converts water-based fuel directly into brilliant light that is converted to electricity using existing photovoltaic technology. Initial testing indicates mega-watt power potential, which would radically transform energy technology. The SunCell® presents a solution to the clean energy challenge of our lifetime.”

About Brilliant Light Power

Brilliant Light Power, Inc. is the inventor of a new primary energy source applicable to essentially all power applications such as thermal, electrical, automotive, trucking, rail, marine, aviation, aerospace, and defense. The BlackLight Process, the power source, is the process of releasing the latent energy of the hydrogen atom by forming Hydrinos. The SunCell® cell was invented by Dr. Mills to release this energy directly as electricity from water as the only source of fuel.


BlackLight Process: A novel chemical process invented by Dr. Mills causing the latent energy stored in the hydrogen atom to be released as a new primary energy source.

Hydrino: Hydrinos are a new form of hydrogen theoretically predicted by Dr. Mills and produced and characterized by BrLP. Hydrinos are produced during the BlackLight Process as energy is released from the hydrogen atom as the electron transitions to a lower-energy state resulting in a smaller radius hydrogen atom. The identity of the dark matter of the universe as Hydrinos is supported by BlackLight’s spectroscopic and analytical results as well as astrophysical observations.

SunCell®: The SunCell® comprises six fundamental low-maintenance commercially available systems, some having no moving parts and capable of operating for a decade or more: (i) a start-up inductively coupled heater to first melt silver; (ii) a gas injector to inject hydrogen derived from water and an injection system comprising an electromagnetic pump to inject molten silver and a very stable solid source of oxygen that reacts with the hydrogen to form the hydrogen to Hydrino catalyst; (iii) an ignition system to produce a low-voltage, high current flow across a pair of electrodes into which the molten metal and fuel are injected to form a brilliant light-emitting plasma; (iv) a blackbody radiator heated to incandescent temperature by the plasma; (v) a light to electricity converter comprising so-called concentrator photovoltaic cells that receive light from the blackbody radiator and operate at light intensity of over one thousand Suns; and (vi) a fuel recovery and a thermal management system that causes the molten metal to return to the injection system following ignition.

Photovoltaic or Solar Cell: Each cell comprises a flat panel of a semiconductor material that exhibits the photovoltaic effect, a method of generating electrical power by converting radiation such as solar radiation into direct current electricity. Light absorption in the semiconductor material creates energized charge carriers of opposite polarity that are collected at corresponding negative and positive electrode contacts on opposite sides of the flat panel to create a voltage that can deliver power to an external load.

    Quite the contrary. It took empirical evidence, the Wright brother’s kitty hawk, to show it could be done, when many of the leading theorists at the time said no.

    By the way, when trains were starting to be a thing, some folks objected to them saying that in theory going >=30 MPH should cause a heart attack and kill a person (not realizing the difference in accelleration and velocity). There are many funny little things like that in history.

  • Mark Underwood

    Yes. Thanks! That’s the second time I’ve done that now! Now corrected to silver.

    • emen7

      NP. I like reading your commentaries and descriptions. Thanks.

  • Fedir Mykhaylov

    The use of silver apparently connected with the struggle with evil spirits? Why not use cheaper metals such as copper or sodium?

    • Mark Underwood

      First and foremost silver is an excellent conductor (better than copper), so the voltage required for a detonation is greatly reduced. From the latest short video with the blinding light, I think a person working the control was reporting the input power at (just) 1.65 volts (and 1200 amps).

      Second, I believe silver vapor is an excellent absorber of UV, and it then it gets (literally) white hot.

      Thirdly, at high temperatures silver is impervious to water and oxidation, if I recall. That was back when H20 was used in the Suncell. As of late they are using H2 gas and a very stable oxide so I’m not sure if that is as much of an issue.

  • Roland

    Someone has…

  • Ged

    Fair enough. I’m only looking at the data we have here so far, and it does not make sense with what is currently known. But, that can always change, that’s the point of the progress of science.

  • Ged

    Experimental data. Every bit of modern technology works as we know from empirical work how electrons act and how big they are. We don’t need theory alone, we already know from direct measurement. We can fire electrons at an object and see it at tens of thousands of magnification (EM Microscope), we can launch electrons at a phosphorus screen and display an image (CRT), we can shoot electrons at near the speed of light through a ring and every time they bend they give off radiation, generally X-rays, which we can use for a myriad of experiments including X-ray crystallography.

    But we can also use electrons and blast them at the nucleons of an atom and see inside of a proton or a neutron, and actually see the three masses that are the quarks that make up baryonic matter. Leptons, in particular electrons, would react with proton of a hydrogen/hydrino. Ionizations would occur, and radiation would be given off. We see none of that with dark matter, yet 90% of the universe’s mass is supposedly the stuff.

    One can throw away the Standard Model and QM all one wants, but one cannot escape experimental results, and whatever one decides should replace SM and QM has to agree with all the data gathered over all time. Hopefully there are folks up to that challenge, and won’t stop half way!

    Here’s the deal. Moving charge spread over a two dimensional surface (as per Mill’s bound electron) can be shown to not radiate under certain conditions. It is called the Haus non radiation condition.

    In a normal excited state, an electron radiates one discrete energy packet of a particular wavelength, and falls inward toward the ground state. While it is falling, it doesn’t radiate. So it happens to meets the non radiation condition while it is falling and when it arrives in a stable orbit.

    Now when atomic hydrogen encounters a catalyst that can receive a specific amount of energy, namely a multiple of 27.2 eV, it gives that amount of energy to the catalyst via a resonant, non photonic process. The catalyst ionizes as a result of receiving that energy. Meanwhile the hydrogen’s electron, which has given up a multiple of 27.2 eV to the catalyst, becomes unstable and begins to fall to an even lower, stable below ‘ground’ energy state. While it is falling inward, it happens to not meet the Haus non radiation condition. So during the process of falling it emits continuum radiation as it accelerates inward, just as any accelerating charge would be expected to emit radiation according to standard classical electromagnetic theory. Then when it arrives at the stable hydrino state it meets the Haus non radiation condition again and no longer radiates.

    There is a little more to it (as per Mill’s theory), such as generating hot (fast moving) hydrogen instead of radiation. But that’s the gist.

  • Ged

    Gravity interactions, maybe very weakly direct, but not the sort of interaction the baryonic matter we and everything visible is made of. You can’t escape that whales interact with light and each other directly, as such dark matter has been long known to not be baryonic. So far, Weakly Interacting Massive Particled (WIMPs) are the best guess and best supported idea for dark matter. That or some form of neutrinos.

    I don’t believe the chamber needs to be completely sealed. There is no reason or need that I can see. There must be fluctuations in internal pressure that should need to be vented. Perhaps vent traps are used as on the other hand they wouldn’t want vaporised silver puffing out through open holes.

    One other interesting point re hydrinos, is that if H becomes a hydrino, it essentially disappears and can’t be detected anymore. If someone believes it can be detected, the question is “what with” ?.

    “Non-polluting: by-product is harmless lower energy state of hydrogen called Hydrino®, lighter than air, vents to space”

    Remember folks, if you use the term “hydrino”, you gotta include the &reg (registered trademark sign)

  • doug marker

    The hydrinos appear to be what is known as ‘dark matter’. If we consider Mills is right about them, then his explanation seems to make sense in that hydrinos don’t emit any photons as they are unable to absorb them (so can never emit them). Thus they can’t be seen but exist as a form of dense hydrogen. Am assuming like normal H they will form bonded pairs as in diatomic H.

    The impression I have is that hydrinos might be better described as the new stable and unchanging form of hydrogen. Hydrogen at ground state, like most other atoms, has electron(s) that can absorb photons and emit them stepping between the various energy levels we currently understand atoms can operate at.

    It is an interesting question as to if (or why not) hydrinos can or can not interact with other matter. My cursory grasp of their energy state, is that they can’t and thus become ‘inert’ atoms that merely occupy space. If they are dark matter then this is already said to occupy the majority of space as we know it.

    A further thought I have is if hydrinos/dark matter do occupy the majority of space then are they carriers of ‘Waves’ of any sort. Presumably an energy wave could travel through space (hydrinos/dark matter) even if we can’t ‘see’ them. This line opens up a lot of interesting avenues.

    A short video posted by BrLP yesterday showing (what seems to me) some more progress in maximizing and perhaps controlling the reaction. (There didn’t seem to be a meltdown at least!)

    • artefact

      Nice video

      BrLP posted an update with a picture. There was indeed a meltdown. A thick refratory molybdenum sleeve, with melting point of about 2600 C was melted through. See at

    The water is only a temporary catalyst. Mills has changed the way the water comes about. What he does now is add H2 gas and some kind of stable oxide, like CaO.
    Some of the H reacts with the O of the oxide to form water. Other H then is catalyzed by the water to form hydrino. The water then dissociates, and the O ultimately returns to be captured by it’s cation, perhaps calcium. (Mills hasn’t revealed what oxide he is using.) Any excess H remains to be converted to hydrino at the next opportunity, etc.
