The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project has been working recently to get ready for some new tests that they plan to begin sometime this week. The tests are called Glowstick 5.4 and 5.5 and the MFMP has published this document:

Here are the aims of each test as described in the document:

Glowstick 5.4

To to test Piantelli (P) theory and possibly Godes (G) theory by way of 18Oxygen isotopic tracer. (P) Claimed 0-6.7MeV proton over 4Mev this would (p,n) 18O producing 18F, this decays back to 18O, half-life is 109.771 minutes producing a 633.023keV positron that annihilates an e- leading to the production of two 511keV photons we can see outside the cell with scintillators and gamma detectors. (G) Claimed ultra slow neutrons are formed, these may convert 18O to 19O which decays with β- at 4822.26keV with a half-life of 26.464s. Absence of thermal neutrons detectable in the bubble detectors would lend support to Sarg (S) theory since there is no 7Li present.

Glowstick 5.5

To test Sarg (S) theory and Holmlid (H) theory by way of addition of Nano Lithium and LiAlD4 and HTED-04 Dehydrogenation Catalyst. (S) Claimed that according to his structural theory of elements, 7Li will arrange itself on prepared Nickel with the 4He end attached to the Nickel and the 3H (tritium) end free – Incident Rydberg state hydrogen would knock off the extra neutron from the 3H leaving 6Li – this is perhaps one explination for the presence of thermal neutrons before the melting of LiH in GS 5.3 and could explain the isotopic shift of 7Li to 6Li in Lugano. The neutron could participate in transmutations of Nickel to higher nucleon numbers. In this experiment, these neutrons, if present may be more likely produce 19O from the 18O and we would be able to observe the signature of the β- at 4822.26keV. (H) Claimed that there is production of Mesons/Muons when Ultra Dense deuterium ( D(0) ) is exposed to high energy photons the muons can additionally lead to Deuterium fusion. We hope to have some muon detection in place.

Below is a video giving a short introduction to some of the work that has been done in preparation for the testing. It looks like great efforts have been made to ensure that people following the tests will have a have a clear picture of the key data. Thanks to all involved in this project for your efforts to share your work with us! I look forward to the tests.

    No excess heat was detected, or expected. In this test we were looking for a specific radiation signature that might help identify the reaction path in Nickel-Hydrogen systems. No reproducible signal was seen, but the test run helped debug the extensive new instrumentation and live data display. The next test will begin in about three weeks.

    Without going thru all this, what’s the latest; any (+) COP?

  • Obvious

    Bob, is it possible to attempt to duplicate the temperature regions comparable to Figure 7 of the Lugano Report?


    Thanks. MFMP, for doing this stuff.

    • Bob Greenyer

      You want an external temp in that range?

      You can make the regions yourself in the free PI Connect linked on the blog at
      by using the RAVI we publish.

      • Obvious

        Yes, an external temperature.
        Since Figure 7 shows part of the Lugano calibration, this is an important temperature segment to understand.

        I have your layout loaded and running. I just tried one of the older glow stick RAVI files also.

        • Bob Greenyer

          Great – you can learn how to configure zones then and set it up in advance.

          I have spoken to Alan – and your request is a go… here is what he said specifically

          “Yes, that is possible. I won’t be getting into the Dogbone test until next week due to work commitments, but I see that as a plus. It will give ample time to refine the proposed test protocol, and resolve some computer issues that appeared yesterday (systems locked up because of DHCP conflicts when the WAN IP address rolled over).

          Today we’re breaking down the GS5.4 cell to recover the fuel.”

          So – within the power limits of 0-700W (due to coil resistance) think about what you might want in the protocol to address any questions you might have.

          • Obvious

            How hot do you think this replica can go?

            • Bob Greenyer

              We are limited to about 700W due to the low resistance of the coil, however, I have a suggestion for Alan to get round this, we have another coil in series in the dummy core.
