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.

Or, if you are an experimenter, talk to us about becoming an affiliated lab and doing your work in a Live Open Science manner.

We just started current through the active wires.  We are now in the live test phase with both cells in the vertical apparatus simultaneously.  Cross your fingers for the human race.  

And you can watch the live data update every 5 minutes and see it plotted against the calibration curve using this spreadsheet in OpenOffice or LibreOffice (both open source and free downloads). 

Update:  New Video of Celani answering questions about his cell at the ICCF17 Conference. 

Some useful insights and tidbits. Specifically about the wires special structures absorbing all gasses - maybe the wire nano structure gets filled with He during calibrations making it more difficult for the wire to absorb Hydrogen and so making it less able to produce excess heat.

@Chuck, #19 -- there are several ideas about what is going on with current and LENR. They depend in part on the isotope of hydrogen and the substrate, but I will just mention them together, of context here, since there may be something similar going on in all contexts:

1. The current causes Joule heating, which affects the reaction.
2. The current results in loading of the hydrogen, causing an increased density of hydrogen per metal atom.
3. The current causes hydrogen to move through the substrate, resulting in an increased *flux* of hydrogen.

Related to current, there are these ideas about resistance:

4. Resistance decreases with the loading of hydrogen in a solid phase system such as the Celani wire.
5. Resistance increases when the high loading of deuterium, e.g., in a palladium substrate, causes it to change phase from alpha to beta, which is less electrically conductive.

See Storms's book on LENR for additional details.

@charlie tapp, #42 -- about your work on the Davey device, can you write up what you're doing and how you're doing it, post it to some form such as Vortex-L or something similar, and then provide a link here?

Maybe allow the data to modify the pitch of a carrier wave, that should work.

@Robert Greenyer: I tried converting today's first 12 hours of raw data from the v1.0 cell from the live page (probably the actual data has a higher sample rate) but I couldn't discern either through audio or spectrograms any interesting pattern. Try opening this on Audacity (an open source audio editing program) so that you can see wave data too:


Resistance (Red)

(EDIT: I noticed too late that one of them has a frequency rate set to 8000 Hz rather than 4000 Hz as I intended to do)

It takes a too much time doing this manually, but it's feasible.
Anyway, at this sample rate I doubt there's much to be seen.
Also, input data here is not really wave-like (unlike seismometer traces, for example) so maybe it's not the best candidate for this sort of conversion.

That sir is not a bad idea.

@Robert Greenyer: by the way, what is the maximum sample rate of your telemetry system? If it's high enough (like 10-20 Hz or more), selected raw data could be converted into sound, and interesting analysis could be performed in that way.

Both cells seem to be dropping in pressure while temp is pretty constant. Over the past 3 days 1.0 dropped about 6% and 1.1 about 12%. Is this leak-down, hydrogen loading or both?

Thanks, means a lot!

When we have the triggering mini-project under Collaborate - please participate and note these ideas there. With regard to the square pulse - that is what I meant, within the limits of the PSU controller. Ultimately we would like full waveform control, PWM and pulse interval control. We are aware that other researchers say it is the leading edge of a change that is important - it will be interesting to see...

@Robert Greenyer: I'm still looking forward to seeing a flash tube firing test. Last time might have been totally coincidental, but there are reasons to think it might be able to affect the cell in unusual ways. Even a low energy camera flash bulb involves when fired several kilowatts of power (over a few milliseconds of time). This can only be performed on glass reactor tubes.

Inputting a square DC wave into the active wire should be interesting to try too (not sure if this is the pulsing you were referring about).

Congratulations Bob on the expanded and far more detailed tests underway. As you point out, many of these experiments take many days or weeks to reach the levels where Pxs shows significant numbers. Thank you and the teams in US and Europe for this outstanding work.
