Cold Fusion: How it works

  • Published on Aug 12, 2010
  • Cold Fusion. Explain this, if you can.
    This was gathered April 20th 2009, roughly 20 years after the initial 1989 press conference where their findings were shot to shreds, instead of the scientific community pulling together and trying experiments to make it work.

    So what is this? Does it work only in theory and not praxis? Or doesn’t it work at all? We know fusion is a thing, but I never saw it working like this. This just looked like the next step of electrolysis.

      +daniel_960_ Praxis was a moon orbiting the Klingon home world in Star Trek 6. It contained an energy production facility that blew up and destroyed the entire moon. So, technically, nothing works on Praxis.

    Any physicists here to comment? This vid does NOT explain how it is possible to overcome the repulsive forces between the ions at low temps, nor what happened to the neutrons or why this simple method has failed to revolutionize the world. Cold fusion obviously does not work as much as we'd all love to believe it.

    If you make a video designed to convince a nay sayer of the validity of cold fusion, it would be best to demonstrate this with an actual cold fusion reactor. Instead of some sciency; atomy, timey wimey video editing software to give the illusion of evidence to the audience.

    It takes about 4 eV to break molecular bonds. 24 MeV of energy release would break 6 million bonds per occurrence, if just 0.5 nanograms of deuterium fused, that would release enough energy to break 2 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 bonds... That is enough energy to destroy the "fusion" cell, kill everyone in the room and get international attention.
    That did not happen, therefore fusion did not occur.
    This is why the findings were shot to shreds and why the scientific community DID pull together and pursue more feasible routes of fusion energy production with research facilities such as ITER.

    What will work then nick canning?

  • nick canning
    nick canning Year ago

    There is a source of systematic error in the calculation of excess heat generation in
    electrochemical cold fusion experiments which seems to have been overlooked.
    Both platinum and palladium are excellent catalysts of the highly exothermic
    reaction O2 + 2H2 > 2H2O . If any oxygen
    produced at the anode, reaches the cathode it will react with hydrogen there
    and produce heat. The rate of the reaction will depend on the surface area of
    the cathode and the concentration of oxygen there. This accords with the
    observation that excess heat generation only occurs for cathodes with colloidal
    Pd black surface morphology but not for flat crystalline surfaces. It also
    explains why the excess heat generation is so difficult to reliably observe
    since any variation in anode-cathode distance and shape will affect the oxygen
    concentration at the cathode due to diffusion and bubble transfer through the
    liquid.

      That cannot happen. I do know of another, older method of cold fusion, but the particles it uses (called muons) to fuse the hydrogen nuclei take more energy to produce than the machine outputs. Also, the Hydrogen needs to be solid or a very cold liquid for it to work. I wod say our best bet for useful fusion power is the torus machine the French are building.

    • Erik Cothron
      Erik Cothron Year ago

      grumpystiltskin It sounds like you are saying 2 atoms of hydrogen can occupy one interstitial site. This should not be possible, unless there is and extra force to cause a cascade of displacements which increases the energy of the hydrogen. In this cold fusion assumption, nothing would cause this. Furthermore, interstitial atoms don't move in an organized method described in the video so I am consisted about that concept. Lastly, there is no explanation to how they actually fuse, atomic movement in a saturated lattis will never be sufficient enough to cause a high energy process like fusion. I'm am just trying to understand the thought process behind this explanation, and investigate it's gaps. Please help if you can!

    • grumpystiltskin
      grumpystiltskin Year ago +1

      Pd uniquely can be loaded with more than one atom of H per atom of Pd. So you have a crystal that has a H submatrix. That means for H to move a whole lot of other stuff has to get out of the way. Like Checkers... can't have two in the same "square". (You have to be a very good electrochemist to get that much H in though.) That makes an odd material and when under stress from cracking as it changes size etc, high energy levels are produced. But a lot of researchers use Nickel which doens't load as high but still supports the reaction.

      Erm.....no. Deuterium-Deuterium or D-D fusion has 3 variants, all of them emit radiation. You either get Helium-3 + a neutron, Tritium + a proton or Helium-4 + gamma radiation.
      That being said I'm by no means convinced as to how this would actually work, as the video gives no explanation as to how the deuterium is somehow able to overcome the Coulomb barrier from its mutual electrostatic repulsion in order to get close enough for the strong force to kick in and for it to fuse. Being "cold fusion" it's obviously not going to exceed the Lawson's criterion, and there's nowhere near enough atoms to rely on random-chance quantum tunneling, so what....? Magic? Hopes and dreams?

    Cold fusion possible but at 25°C, it will take 40 years to generate 1 kg of hydrogen fusion.Here is how:
    If you have 250°C of heat in your hand you get to have a fire.
    If you have 1500°C of heat in your hand, you get to melt iron.
    If you have 1.6 Million °C of heat in your hand you get to have fission bomb.
    If you have of 13M°C of heat in your hand you get to fuse hydrogen atoms.
    If you have 100 Billion °C of heat in your hand you get to make gold.
    You see you need heat or energy input. Room temperature fusion of course possible. It just Heat vs time, how long will it take to generate 1 kg hydrogen fusion at room temperature? First let's compare different fuels. Burn time is the time it takes to power steam engines in power stations which used to generate electricity.
    1 kg of coal = 8 kWh, burn time: 15 minutes
    1 kg of petrol = 24 kWh, burn time: 45 minutes
    1 kg or uranium fission= 112 MWh, burn time: 4 months
    1 kg of hydrogen fusion = 1.12 GWh, burn time: 4 years
    Conclusion:
    It will take 4 years to generate 1 kg of hydrogen fusion at 250°C. If room temperature is 25°C. It will take 40 years to generate 1kg of hydrogen fusion. Puff, who wants to wait the long for an energy? So COLD FUSION possible but will be a waste. Go to a other different possible direction.

    guys, cold fusion works. i demonstrated it with my dog.
    i hooked up my dog to my electric generator (electricity is needed to ignite the reaction). when i ran enough electricity through my dog for an extended period, he incredibly burst into flames which created an intense heat...cold fusion! he burns at higher temperatures and with more energy than the generator. when i took the temperature of the generator, is was 200 degrees less than my burning dog! 200 degress less! i created over 200 degrees of heat from a cold generator! i went and repeated this process with my neighbor's dog. same results!

    the failure of many experiments does not mean something is not possible. that is why we keep trying. any result, successful or not, is still a result. what I've heard is it requires a very pure palladium, and many sources are contaminated ever so slightly, which makes the experiment difficult to reproduce. there are secret groups with near limitless resources, such as the us government. if they figure it out, they wouldn't necessarily make this public. it may very well work in the future, but wait, it is the future. time never stops passing, and technology never stops progressing. the real question is, when will it be available to the average joe at a cost less than their house.

  • Barry Kort

    Do you see all those bubbles forming on the surface of the electrodes and then sloughing off? What that does is produce a random time-varying resistance in the circuit.
    It is well known (from first principles in electric circuit theory, as well as in telephony) that when you drive a time-varying resistance with a regulated current (whether regulated DC or SuperWave), the load generates its own AC current that has the characteristics of burst noise.
    Because the regulated power supplies are trying to maintain a regulated current, they have to work hard to suppress and cancel these noise signals that are being transmitted out of the cell. In doing so, the regulated power supplies must inject an equal and opposite signal, so as to maintain the specified regulated current profile (whether DC or SuperWave).
    In the reports that I’ve had access to, I found the experimenters were relying on an energy budget model that ignored the additional energy being pumped into the cells so as to maintain a regulated current in the face of a rapidly fluctuation load resistance.
    In the cases where the experimenters had published enough data for me to apply the correct model from AC circuit theory, I found that the “anomalous excess heat” was exactly accounted for by the overlooked AC power injected into the cells to countermand the noise power being transmitted out.

    Why can't you use regular water, instead of heavy water, as I understand D2 is heavier and bigger than H2, but I see it to be problematic as D2O costs about 12$ per gram, not a lot, but you would need to pay like 900$ for a gallon, and if this would go out on the market that's a tad bit too much for a simple electrolyte. Also, how to generate electricity using this technology? Of course you can use cold fusion to boil the D2O, and have heavy water steam turn a turbine, but again the losses of expensive D2O would be more money lost than earned through electricity generated

  • Nikola Tesla
    Nikola Tesla 3 years ago

    This fusion process does not produce neutrons, helium-3, tritium (or, presumably,
    hydrogen), but instead produces only helium-4. The fuel gas from long-term runs has been
    analyzed by a large, magnetic-sector, mass spectrograph to contain very roughly 100 ppm of
    helium-4, which was not present in the research-grade D2 fuel.
    The reaction is: 2D → He-4 + 24 meV. The energy thus produced is enormous, and
    because deuterium is very cheap in the form of heavy water (less than $l/gm.), the fuel cost
    for this process is very low indeed (much less than 1 cent per KWH).
    This process has promise for low cost production of heat and power on a large
    commercial scale, and the oceans contain enough deuterium, as heavy water, to satisfy the earth's
    energy needs for many millions of years.

  • Aphobis

    Ok, two things:
    1. what is the superwave principle and how exactly does modulating the current improve the absorption of deuterium?
    2. How does confining the deuterium in a lattice cause them to fuse? Deuterium-deuterium fusion requires even higher temperatures/pressures than deuterium-tritium fusion and I don't see how that can be replicated in a metallic lattice.

      a cloud chamber can not only be triggered by cosmic rays or other radiation.... just sprinkle in some dust or some powdered salt, that should be quite effective at triggering the condensation in the cloud chamber. so how would it produce energy when triggered by a cosmic ray, when you can also trigger it with some dust? im sorry, i dont want to sound condescending, but i really dont see where this is going. similar thing with the scintillation counter.... just let in some light, with a bit of light pollution it will be going off constantly, and not just when a cosmic ray hits the crystal.
      the only detectors that actually take energy out of the cosmic ray particle and measures that energy in the form of heat is a calorimeter. when it gets hit hard, its temperature increases by a tiny tiny amount, and thats what you measure. it still wont catch enough cosmic rays to heat up so much that you can turn the heat into electricity, but compared to the other methods, at least it DOES take some real energy out of the particle.

    • Count Wes

      Actually, cloud chambers consume energy when you use a peltier cooler.
      Unless you make your own dry ice then it's not as much..
      I've gotten myself a few tricks an a few ways to make the research go further.
      Don't worry, because I'm also aware of the energy loss with Scintillation Counters.
      I have a few tricks up my sleeve I will try.

    • kurtilein3
      kurtilein3 3 years ago

      +Count Wes
      so basically you use detectors that can detect cosmic rays, and try to get energy from the signals that you get in these detectors?
      i hate to tell you this, a scintillation counter actually loses energy with each particle it detects. you need to apply the right voltages to the different parts of the photomultiplier, and that voltage gets carried away whenever a particle triggers it. and cloud chambers constantly consume energy, to maintain the unstable super-saturated gas. solar panels work best when you have lots of electromagnetic radiation, like sunlight.
