Welcome

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project is a group dedicated to researching Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (often referred to as LENR) while sharing all procedures, data, and results openly online. We rely on comments from online contributors to aid us in developing our experiments and contemplating the results. We invite everyone to participate in our discussions, which take place in the comments of our experiment posts. These links can be seen along the right-hand side of this page. Please browse around and give us your feedback. We look forward to seeing you around Quantum Heat.

Join us and become part of the project. Become one of the active commenters, who question our work and suggest next steps.

There is a great opportunity to learn everything about the project and actively help it with every day progress. The great feedback from some of our volunteers will tell you more. Now we search for someone to come to HUG, Minnesota to spark the Sparky cell and see with own eyes whatever exciting will happen.

We had very good results this afternoon, I tried to nail down the activation temperature using a passive heating after reducing the pressure to 1 bar and increasing the power in the NiCr wire. for a temperature of 184°C we were able to see T mica rising without any change in P_in. It kept oscillating with an amplitude at lower value as the temperature was set lower.

Then reducing power in several time allowed us to see that this behaviour was showing a lower amplitude.

The first run of the EU cell will occur at around 20:30 CET. We will have a range of power metrics for you. 

  • P_Out Low (W)  = The most conservative power in watts output from the cell calculated from the highest calibration curve fit

  • P_Out High (W) = The most optimistic power in watts output from the cell calculated from the lowest calibration curve fit 

  • P_Xs Low (W) = The most conservative EXCESS power calculated by the formulae

    P_Xs Low = P_Out Low - (Power (Blue) + Power (Red))


Today at 12:12:12 PST on the 12/12/12 (during the 21st CET hour) we will power the active wire and see if there is any excess heat generated from the cell. We should start at P_in = 48W to get the best replication of Celani’s work.

We have a “deliberate mistake” in the data viewer, if you are sober enough at this time in the day, we challenge you to spot it.

Wish us luck!


UPDATE #1 Flicking the switch

So, as of 2:55 Indian time I am seeing around 6W Pxs on our most conservative baseline.

Here was the moment of switchover of the Power.

Reviewing the data, just after input power was increased to 55W, at the same time of the sudden change in wire impedance, there also was an anomalous rise in reactor temperatures most probably not depending on external factors (air conditioning, etc). This rise was short lived, but relatively intense.

Could this have been due to some sort of short-term chemical reaction from the wire? Perhaps due to the release of more oxygen from it?

How does the accuracy of the thermocouple affect the readings we are viewing?

This is the accuracy for the thermocouples:
Temp Type E J K N R S T

200 1.7 1.5 1.5 1.5 1.0 1.0 0.8

Quoting Ecco:
The higher the T_Ambient, the less the P_xs, though.


If the P_Xs calculation is based on the difference between a measured temperature and T_Ambient, then an increasing T_Ambient will decrease the offset and thus decrease P_Xs.

I googled "Seebeck Calorimeter" and found this:

It seems the increase in power from 48W to 55W influenced T_Ambient.

Following the latest input power increase to 55W, active wire impedance started acting weirdly, decreasing in sudden steps. I think that after power will be brought back to 48W, wire impedance will turn out to be lower than before the power rise.

It will also be interesting to see if after decreasing input power back to 48W, excess power will be the same or will have increased. I'm starting to think that it's not got a definite relationship with wire impedance.

I looked at temp values from 8 december 01:00 to 12:00. There was no power switched on during that time.

All the temperature readings are in phase with T_Ambient.

Offset of T_Well, T_Mica, T_GlassIn and T_GlassOut could be due to pressure decrease during that time.

Larger offset of T-Board (approx +5°C) should be explained.
