At National Institute of Nuclear Physics, Frascati National Laboratories (INFN-LNF)-Italy, studies about Cold Fusion started on March 26, 1989. We found, since the beginning, that non-equilibrium situations are key-factors to get any “anomalous effect” (thermal/nuclear): mostly, they are forced reactions, not spontaneous. The present abstract is: A...

Following the efforts to find simple procedures to activate the specific material we developed (since 2011; based on surface-modified Constantan in the shape of long and thin wires, Joule heating), able to produce measurable values of AHE we reproduced them. Made new specific tests to investigate also isotopic effects. Moreover, according to our in...

Anomalous Heat Effects (AHE) have been observed in wires of Cu55Ni44Mn1 (Constantan) exposed to H2 and D2 in multiple experiments during the last eight years. Improvements in the magnitude and reproducibility of AHE, and improvements in wire preparation and reactor design were reported by the authors in the present and previous papers. The oxidatio...

Our group has been studying LENR phenomena in Constantan (Cu55 Ni44 Mn1) since 2011. In fact, this alloy captured our attention since it promotes efficiently the dissociation of molecular Deuterium (D2) or Hydrogen (H2) to the atomic state, followed by a remarkable absorption capability. Under certain conditions, this absorption is associated with...

In 2011, we introduced the use of constantan alloy in LENR, in the form of long and thin wires as a hydrogen dissociation promoter. We disclosed for the first time the reason for the choice of such material at IWAHLM-12 Workshop (2017), hypothesizing it was the initiator of the reaction in Andrea Rossi's experiment. We developed a specific treatmen...

] Since 2011, at INFN-LNF, we investigated the behavior of Constantan (Cst) alloy (Cu 55 Ni 44 Mn 1 ; ISOTAN44) as concerns Hydrogen and/or Deuterium (H 2 /D 2) absorption and generation of Anomalous Heat Excess (AHE) at High Temperatures (HT, i.e.>>200 °C). To further improve the intrinsic, excellent, catalytic proprieties of Cst toward H 2 2H di...
Conference Paper

Since 2011, we introduced into the LENR Research field, the use of a Constantan alloy to absorb and adsorb proper amounts of H2 or D2 (concentrated and/or mixed with noble gases of low thermal conductivity) and to generate thermal anomalies even at low temperatures (>200°C wire temperature). Based on this idea, we developed a reactor with a core of...

the improvements on Constantan-related experiments, started in 2011, in order to study the feasibility of new Nickel based alloys that are able to absorb proper amounts of Hydrogen (H2) and/or Deuterium (D2) and that have, in principle, some possibility to generate anomalous thermal effects at temperatures >100°C. The interest in Ni comes in part b...

At the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (Frascati National Laboratories), we focused, for over three years on methods to generate anomalous excess heat at temperatures (T) well over that allowed by unpressurised traditional electrolytic environments (by light or heavy water; T < 100°C). Our goal was to develop a device able to generate heat at...

Large excess heat is measured in a Pd wire coated with nano-particles. A long (65 cm) and thin (50 m) Pd wire is coated with thin layers of Pd nano-particles, stabilized against self-sintering by the addition of selected chemical elements: the coating is adhered to the wire surface by heating it in air up to over 800°C. The wire is then heated wit...

* Following our previous experiments (since 2011) using Constantan (CNM) wires, with surface sub-micrometric, to promote Anomalus Heat Effects (AHE) under H2 or D2 atmosphere at high temperatures, we made several efforts to increase the reproducibility of the effects. * We found, among others, that some specific glassy surface increased the values of AHE because glass absorb large amount of H2. Also addition of Fe at the wire surfaces was effective. * Since 2014 we found, by chance, that some voltages and currents are SPONTANEOUSLY generated at the ends of CNM wires, kept at the same temperatures, one absorbed proper amounts of H2/D2. Several composition of wires were developed to increase the value of such electrical anomalies. After 2 years, we improved the Voltage and Current values over one order of magnitude (i.e. 100 in power).
