Bob Greenyer reports the following from recent communications with me356
“Firstly, may I say that me356 is a very diligent individual - he likes to work on things until they are done using just the amount of time on an iteration needed to move forward. He is also a very private person and as such does not like to be hounded, though, frankly, I don’t think anyone does.
He said in communications made between the 9th and 12th September 2016 that he is satisfied with his research and development.
He states that his reactor can ‘work’ (whatever that means) “for a long time without interruption”. Which in this field is no small feat as some researchers, across a wide range of variants, continue to discover!
He believes that it is using a new approach, specifically he says that he has not seen his approach described in other patents. I cannot confirm if that is the case. He feels this is “very good” - read into that what you will.
He says he is “still trying to achieve SSM (self sustain mode/production of heat without input power) for longer periods and increase COP ([overall] coefficient of performance) without harmful radiation”. Like the MFMP, me356 claims to have observed photons in a range of energies and neutrons, though, he has indicated that the neutron flux is higher if the reaction is overdriven/incorrectly driven. Again, I cannot confirm his specific claims.
He feels that after “some tweaks” his work “will be done” and at that time it would be perfect to precisely measure the COP.
I have offerred to visit him at the earliest possible opportunity which is between 22-29th October with the intention to observe and to test/verify the system and me356 has said that he hopes he will have finished everything by then, he believes he is probably on the last iteration after which the “device will be ready for daily usage (heating/steam production)”.
Visits have been discussed before but the nature of LENR research is that it is not deterministic (unlike, say software programming) so the above plan is not a certainty and cannot be relied on.
I must also say that I cannot in any way at this stage confirm if me356 has what he claims, but I can say that he is a fast and insightful, multi-skilled experimentalist and I would suggest that if any other parties have working embodiments, they need to get them to market fast or run the risk of becoming irrelevant.
In addition, it must be noted that if he has achieved what he claims - then it demonstrates that with around 18 months of hard graft and focussed research by competent researchers conducting rapid cycle experiments using publicly available material as a starting point - it may be possible to develop a working device. I hope to test the veracity of this in the coming months. For now, we have not even seen the evidence.”
