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.

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

The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that usable energy tends towards unusable energy.  Turns out this may be more of a rule of thumb, than a universal law.

So, here is a cool experiment vaguely like what we attempted with a Celani wire not too long ago, but at much higher temperatures and much lower vacuums.  To make a long story short, they seem to have proven that a closed system can still do useful work.  Even more cool: they believe in using an open science approach to help develop it!!

Their work was published in Nature and Physical Review E, and Foundations of Physics

(I have read these, but I am not sure I have permission to publish copies of them here.)

Latest results operate at room temperature, too!  Check out their video explanation of how they plan to approach the challenge of making this work at room temp and higher powers.

Let us know if you think we should be doing a replication ourselves.

This is my first time pay a quick visit at here and i am
genuinely pleassant to read everthing at one place.

I always used to read article in news papers but now as I am a user of net so from
now I am using net for articles or reviews, thanks to web.

That website has since been taken down. :( They decided not to do their research openly in the interest of being able to secure private funding and guarding against getting patented out of the game by onlookers is what I heard.

From ICCF18 Celani presentation: www.lenr-canr.org/acrobat/CelaniFfurtherpro.pdf

the nanoparticles may be seen as Maxwell's daemons able to transform part of thermal energy of the nanoparticles into valuable high potential chemical energy due to the splitting of the hydrogen molecule. The second principle would only apparently be violated, but in reality, since it is a statistical principle, it simply cannot be applied to systems consisting of a relatively small number of atoms.
The non-applicabili ty can also be extended to a macroscopic system consisting of relatively isolated nanoscopic structures.
In order to verify this hypothesis, a stream of molecular hydrogen could be send over an appropriate catalyst functioning above a critical temperature T1, and then part of the monatomic hydrogen formed in the catalyst could be recombined in a second time and/or place, thereby generating a temperature T2>T1.
This system, thanks to the strongly endothermic nature of the decomposition of molecular hydrogen, would also allow to cool intense and localized heat sources.

This is a very interesting phenomenon, one we suspected of being active in the Celani cell. The Paradigm experiment is similar to the H2 dissociation test MFMP did last year, with important differences of much higher temperature and detailed attention to physical symmetry.

The first paper (at Springer) is also available open-source at the Paradigm web site:
