MFMP Uploading ICCF20 Videos

Thanks to Pelgrim for letting us know that the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project has started to upload videos from the ICCF20 conference that is currently taking place in Sendai, Japan to its YouTube Channel. The conference runs from October 2-7, 2016.

Link to the videos is here:

So far only two videos are listed, but I expect more will be provided as time goes on as the conference runs for the whole week.

UPDATE (Oct 6, 2016)

Thanks to Bob Greenyer for also mentioning that there is a separate page where the MFMP have uploaded slideshows that have been put together by presenters at ICCF20. They can be accessed at the following link:

    I’m not sure where is the best place to post this but I’ve been reading Jean-Paul Biberian’s summaries of the ICCF20 talks ( and I have a few thoughts on LENR.

    (1) Several talks indicate that the optimum temperature for excess heat is around 300 C. A claim has also been made that this corresponds to a wavelength for deuterium which “matches” the lattice. I’ll leave this aside for now since this corresponds to a wavelength of around 1 Angstrom for protium, and I don’t quite see how this matches the lattice. Also, the dependence of wavelength lambda = h/sqrt(3 m kT) on temperature is relatively weak.

    (2) Several talks (Celani, Takahashi) indicate that the reaction is a non-equilibrium process and only occurs when driving H/D into or out of the system. This could be via a pressure change in the gas, a mechanical shock, heating up or cooling down, or last but not least EM or electrical stimulation or pulses. The latter could provide “non-equilibrium shocks” via local heating or charged particle (p, H-) acceleration or motion through an interface or defect, or even magnetostriction. This is also consistent with Brillouin, as well as with Fralick’s results and Piantelli’s statements.

    (3) Item 2 above also suggests that defects (e.g. nanocracks) and/or the surface may play an important role, since it is through the “surface” (broadly defined to include the boundaries of cracks etc.) that the H/D can be “pushed” through. (A lot of this is I believe also consistent with F&P type Pd/D electrolysis experiments.)

    (4) The fluctuation/non-equilibrium idea is also consistent with Vysotskii’s ideas of oscillating nanocracks creating a coherent state, and perhaps also consistent with Storms’ nanocrack idea.

    (5) For metals at least (as opposed to say bacteria) attaining sufficient fluctuations may require higher temperatures (e.g. 300 C or higher) and also nano or micro structures, which may be dynamic, either at the surface or near the proper defects. This is also consistent with Rossi’s “microtubules”, Clean Planet’s micro/nanostructures, Miley’s nanoparticles, Swartz’s Nanor’s. In particular, it might explain why Swartz’s Nanors work so well (even though the heat output is very small due to the small size). The optimum temperature might be related to a competition between the thermal wavelength of protium (which decreases with increasing temperature) and the need for sufficient thermal fluctuations (which increase with increasing temperature).

    (6) There is a related idea of Dubinko involving solitons or large amplitude/energy nonlinear oscillations. I imagine that these could also play a role.

    (7) Somewhat unrelated but Peter Gluck (and also Focardi, Piantelli etc.) have emphasized that for Ni/H systems, a high-temperature “degassing” period in a very high vacuum is necessary to “clean” the system of impurities which could either “trap” the H or not allow it to penetrate into the Ni. I’m not sure if Celani/Takahashi/MFMP are all doing this but I imagine that a number of their preparation procedures may be comparable.

    I guess a lot of this has been speculated before but it’s nice to see some of these ideas being confirmed experimentally at ICCF20. Also, while I had previously thought of “shocks” as “compressing” or inputting large amounts of energy locally (to overcome for example the Coulomb barrier) I had not thought of this in terms of driving H/D through the system via non-equilibrium conditions. Also, perhaps because I would have expected them to be random, I had not connected the idea of non-equilibrium fluctuations with Vysotskii’s correlated states ideas.

    I would appreciate any thoughts, comments, or insight (especially from those who are at ICCF20 but not excluding those who are not).

    That is very kind, I think with a 2+ month program involving many people at a respectable institution, this will not come cheap – I think that since VV and his Russian partners have agreed in principal, this may need to be a kick-starter specifically. We would tier it, Cs133, then Cs137, then De-activation/re-activation experiments.

  • Bob Greenyer

    A potential experiment to establish both LENR, biological transmutations and much more…

    Vladimir Vysotskii has agreed a sum for us to replicate with assistance from his team over a few months. We will look to socially fundraise this, probably from KickStarter

      Thank you for mindblowing reports, and for wonderful coverage of the ICCF! This is, truly, hope for humanity.

    • georgehants

      Morning Bob, good luck with this approach, has Vladimir et al published the full details of this work so that any Researchers can attempt to replicate?

      • Bob Greenyer

        If you look at the videos on our site and the linked presentations in the main video there is a lot of evidence. However, he has agreed that if the work is properly conducted at a capable institution, he is very happy to work with us – this is invaluable – what we may have, for the second time in our history, is a technology claimant that is willing to assist in a replication of their claim.

        • georgehants

          Bob, many thanks, as I wrote before not being technically minded on details, like many, I appreciate your concise reply’s to put things in perspective.
          I take it that MFMP will be publishing all details of their work on this experiment so that, if successful or otherwise the knowledge becomes open and able to assist others.

          • Bob Greenyer

            Yes. I think that now the VV goup have a patent in process, they are more free to divulge procedure. We will do our best, it is early days but if VV and his collaborators have what they claim, then a replication that stands up to wide scrutiny would have a real effect on the credibility of the whole field. moreover, there is a small chance that new treatments could be developed to make our lives easier and happier whilst we are all waiting for excess heat.

    off topic: the physics nobel prize goes to condensed matter physics.

    Is the nobel committee slowly gaining in on CMNS ?

    • cashmemorz

      Don’t we know that Nobel prize for physics recipients are nominated by mainstream scientists? When the mainstream gathers a critical mass of individuals that are not afraid of losing face or career future, then we will know that the old guard has died off sufficiently to allow condensed matter physics to take part in advances in fusion or whatever is driving LENR.

      • Alan DeAngelis

        Yeah, F&P never got Nobel Prizes. So, itโ€™s not the be all and the end all.

  • pelgrim108

    Thanks MFMP. Can you zoom in on the slides a bit more?
    To all the people taking pictures and video of the presentations: Please give us some links here to where we can enjoy them. Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Ged

        Greatly appreciating what you guys are doing! So much good stuff we would all miss out on otherwise.

        • Warthog

          I know this comment will likely make me very unpopular around here, but the videos simply suck. The slides are “unseeable” (as in cannot be read from the screen), and the accompanying audio is indecipherable. And having the slides by themselves as files without a transcript helps not at all.

          I can only hope that the ICCF organizers will have something that actually transfers at least some information in a decipherable format.

  • Gerrit

    Thanks MFMP. I hope this ICCF will bring us interesting & groundbreaking results.
