Pre-ICCF Excitement [UPDATE#1 - More evidence of team excitement]

on .

The folks at HUG put this together because they are so excited about ICCF.  While it is unfortunate we couldn't get the rest of the MFMP team on video for this, rest assured that we are all excited and eager to learn, share, network, and even hobnob a little.

 

 

With all the interesting things that are planned to happen next week, what are all our readers most excited about?  Anything you want us to specifically seek out or ask about there?


UPDATE#1 - More evidence of team excitement

Here you can see Robert Ellefson is barely able to contain himself in his lair

And Mathieu is visibly ecstatic!

HI, GUYS, SUPER LEAD IN VIDEO, HOPE OUR QUANTUMHEAT TEAM ARE HAVING FUN, I KNOW I WOULD BE.
GUYS, EYES WIDE,EARS ON, LOTS OF GOOD INFO FLOWING.

@Ryan Hunt:

> I hope they stun everybody with a super compelling demonstration. I chatted with them last spring and they are keeping a very tight control on their technology. I doubt they will let anybody not tightly legally bound to be able to touch it till the product is released.

According to hearsay information at my disposal (so don't rely at all on it) it seems that DGT secrets on their HENI process are not that secret anymore, apparently. This might mean that they filed a detailed patent which is about to become public or that they plan to release relevant scientific information (other than theoretical ramblings) soon/during ICCF18.

@All

Anyone noticed, we all have beards... that is how hard these guys work, either that, or they can't afford a razor!

Ask the "veterans" if this iccf is different from the previous ones. Talk to first time participants and ask for their impression.

@ Ed - We just packed up two of those calorimeters, so you can definitely pop by and see them at a display table we'll have. Our first few hours of playing with them has shown us that the time lags in the heat flow will make the control a bit noisier than we had hoped. I think what time lag could be optimized in a derivative design, though.

I'm excited. For me the best paper/poster is Takahashi and Kitamura's 14W from 4 grams of nickel. They are doing real science and showing the data. They give the chemical formula of the powder (maybe not the exact preparation details).

The guy who is doing sonar to measure the time and spatial distribution of events is cool. SPAWAR did this in the past.

I hear there is a guy bring an IR camera :) like SPAWAR super cool.

The Navy Research lab guy will be good IF he says they see an effect.

Defkalion's demo could be very exciting but it will not be science more marketing and investor relations, but fun no the less.

I am looking forward to Ryan and Bob explaining what the net result of the MFMP data is.

The Chinese gas flow through thin Pd tubes should be good science. I wonder if gas flow through PD/Ni causes single atom vacancies? I also wonder if Godes' current pulses cause single atom vacancies? Likewise high gas loading and high surface area lower the energy of formation for single atom vacancies. Maybe single atom vacancies is a unifying theme.

Don't know if I will be lucky enough to see the new zero temperature change calorimetry from HUG.

I think Defkalion GT are definitely going to steal the show.

Would they be open to public live tests by independent parties such as the MFMP?
I wonder if they have plans releasing detailed scientific information about the basic working principle of what they call HENI, or in other words to allow other researchers to independently replicate their effect at a low (non-commercial ) level to make science in this field finally progress.
