    Hank Mills:
    In your question there is the answer. Obviously I cannot comment. Our Team is making all the necessary work to make the E Cat operate.

    Dear Andrea,

    The requirement for AC makes me think an magnetic field, altering in polarity, may be needed to stimulate the reactions until they reach a certain level at which they become self sustaining. Another possibility is that the resistor coil acts like a helical antenna emitting an RF signal into the reactor. This second possibility seems less likely, due to the possibility that red hot resistors might have such a great resistance they may not transmit well.

    Can you elaborate at all on this? As always, I understand if you cannot. But after following this saga for years now, I’ll be thrilled when we can learn a bit more about what is happening: rather than only reading speculation that is probably 90% wrong that has been rehashed over and over on internet E-Cat forums.

    The E-Cat is a dream of an ideal energy source made manifest. I’m not a doubting Thomas, but perhaps a bit of a Zacchaeus, with a great curiosity , climbing up the “tree” of the internet to hear an explanation of whats happening that allows the E-Cat to work it’s wonders. If you were a prophet and the E-Cat was a barrel of water turned into wine, the situation would be so much easier. But since you are a scientist having to deal with patent laws, unsavory characters, and IP issues, the whole situation is much more complicated.

    Interesting issue, never thought about that. I will talk with out electronic experts to check what you write.

    Wladimir,

    How is the creation of two new corpuscles for the two particles of a divided photon different in essence from hadronization which also involves an act of creation of particles from the vacuum (or aether, as you believe)?

    All the best,
    Joe

    Dear Andrea,

    How about making your E-Cat reactors (both domestic & industrial) resistant to EMP (electromagnetic pulse). I mean to hide all electronic components inside metal shielding of reactor (Faraday cage) and maybe some extra fuses to protect against currents induced in external cabling. This might be very important in case of possible “Carrington Event” or human triggered EMP:
    http://www.wired.com/2012/02/massive-solar-flare/

    Such feature will make your reactors even better when comparing with classical energy sources which cannot be secured like this.

    @Wladimir Guglinski

    Now I have some doubts that asked her (and still waiting for reply)
    1) What happens if NL2 is put before D2 (after b)?
    2) Why do you need to put the infrared beam (that hit O) before NL2?
    3) Whats happens if you reduce the distance between D3 and D2?
    I thing that you should maintain some reasonable doubt about this experiment till Gabriela answers these questions.
    =========================================

    Silvio,
    we have to wait Gabriela to make the experiments suggested by me.
    I even dont know if she will undertake them

    @Wladimir Guglinski
    If I well understood your thinking, the photon behaviour approaching a polarizer should be deterministic (its sub-particles have a determined distance between them) and not probabilistic (as QM says).
    So what should happen when a laser beam of vertically polarized photons approach a 45degree polarizer (or a beam splitter)?
    According to a deterministic approach all photons should get the same way…
    But experimental results say they get two different ways: 50% pass and 50% absorbed (or deviated in a beam splitter).
    Have I missed something?
    How your model explains the different behaviour of identical photons (same polarization)?
    I think that this is the core concept of QM, we must agree on this point before discussing about entanglement or Aspect experiment.
    =====================================

    Silvio,
    two photons with the same wavelenght can have different distances “d” between their particle and antiparticle.

    Suppose two photons A and B with the same wavelength, but in the photon A the distance is “d(a)”, and the distance in the photon B is “d(b)”.

    Both the photons A and B can be polarized vertically.

    So, suppose both them are polarized vertically (90º)

    Now suppose they both hit a polarizator 45º

    Their chance to be polarized 45º depends on their distances d(a) and d(b). For each one of them the chance is 50%.

    Only two twin photons (as created in Gabriela experiment) will have the same behavior, because they both have the same distance “d”.
    If one is polarized, the other is polarized too.
    If one is not polarized, the other also is not polarized.

    regards
    wlad

    Hi Andrea,
    Lets not talk about controllability of the E-cat, can the Rossi effect be initiated by any heat source (gas, Dc, Ac, animal fat, coal,gasoline….)?

  9. Andrea Rossi

    Mark:
    No, only with AC, so far. R&D is on course for gas operated E-Cats.

    Eric,

    Your suggestion about recreating a missing part of a particle by using the environment may be true. One example of such a speculated process is called hadronization:

    “In particle physics, hadronization (or hadronisation) is the process of the formation of hadrons out of quarks and gluons. This occurs after high-energy collisions in a particle collider in which free quarks or gluons are created. Due to postulated colour confinement, these cannot exist individually. In the Standard Model they combine with quarks and antiquarks SPONTANEOUSLY CREATED FROM THE VACUUM to form hadrons.” (capitalization is mine) (Wikipedia, Hadronization)
    ============================================

    Joe,
    there is a confusion here.

    in high-energy collisions there is collision between matter with matter, at high energy. As energy is converted to matter following Einstein’s equation E=mc² , the creation of quarks occurs.

    A similar phenomenon occurs when a photon is divided in the Gabriela experiment. The particle takes a direction, and as the photon cannot be formed by one unique corpuscle, a new antiparticle is created, and together with the particle they form the first new twin photon.

    The same happens with the antiparticle of the original photon. It takes another direction, and a perticle is created, and together with the antiparticle they form the second new thin photon.

    It is not the case in the entanglement between photons. They have to interact through a very long distance.
    And it is not the case of formation of a new photon. It is actually the case of change its polarization.

    regards
    wlad

    Andreas Moraitis:
    Gas powered E-Cats are still in a very primitive R&D status, therefore I am not able to answer to your question. Sorry.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  12. Andreas Moraitis

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Could the gas-powered reactors use a DC source (for example, a battery) as electrical input?

    Best regards,

    Piergiorgio Mongioj:
    I meant that the E-Cats can work properly “from the electrical point of view” if the frequency is either 50 or 60 Hz, I was not referring to the other data.
    Warm Regards,

  14. Piergiorgio Mongioj

    Dear Andrea, you say “50 Hz or 60 Hz are frequencies at which the E-Cat can work properly”. So The E-Cat works properly… Very good news!!! Negative or positive? ;-) “Hot” regards. Piergiorgio Mongioj

  15. Andrea Rossi

    Greg Leonard:
    Yes, 50 Hz or 60 Hz are frequencies at which the E-Cat can work properly. As a matter of fact, in the USA we have 60 Hz, while in Europe we have 50 Hz.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  16. Greg Leonard

    Dear AR
    Will the ecat work just as well with the American 60Hz and the British 50Hz mains electricity?

  17. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    No, we need AC current: the E-Cat cannot be operated with DC current.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  18. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You say that the E-Cat needs AC current to operate. My understanding is that the electricity is needed to run an electric resistance heater — could not DC current power a resistor and achieve the same effect?

    So what is additional purpose behind the need for AC?

    Many thanks,

    Could it be posible that if you split a rotating object then the two rotating objects will by means of the free aether be able to re-create its missing partner if it only needs one or two aethers. Could this explain the Gabriela experiment or am I completely off the mark. Regards Eric Ashworth

  21. Eric Ashworth

    To Wladimir and Joe, Thanks for your reply to my questions regarding QE. I will be following your comments which I enjoy on this blog. The subject of aether regarding its existence is, I believe, an important missing link in physics which if ever proven will provide major advances in the understanding of a complex subject. My understanding of aether is that it is a grainy substance with no gravity value because it lacks a dimension of volume but represents a value of size energy i.e. not volume energy. It will respond to gravity because gravity has to sit within a volume. Maybe aether can only make so much volume energy/ matter within a given volume and any remaining aether has to fill the empty space between the manufactured volumes and thereby the free aether will never be at rest as it takes straight line projectories to cover as much distance in the shortest possible time. Could it be posible that if you split a rotating object then the two rotating objects will by means of the free aether be able to re-create its missing partner if it only needs one or two aethers. Could this explain the Gabriela experiment or am I completely off the mark. Regards Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In considering the size of the nickel particles, it seems to me there must be an optimal nickel particle average diameter for the Rossi effect to work for industrial applications such as the Hot eCat. Assuming the eCat reactor is at temperature with the internal fuel close to but less than the melting point of nickel, then too small a nickel particle diameter and the particle will melt due to the nuclear event. Likewise, since the LENR effect appears to be a function of surface area, too large of a particle diameter will reduce the likelihood of an LENR effect. So there must be a “sweet zone” for the Rossi effect in terms of nickel particle size. Do you agree?

  24. Andrea Rossi

    Dan C.:
    Thank you for your intelligent comment. Obviously you refer to the Hot Cat. As a matter of fact the issue you raised is correct, anyway the images you have seen were not related to an industrial plant, but to a bench prototype.
    Thank you for your attention and your suggestion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  25. Dan C.

    DR. Rossi

    From images I’ve seen, it appears you still employ the flange on the reactor with the studs protruding out.

    This would indicate that the reactor would be positioned inside a boiler with the flange pressing against the wall squeezing the seal tight against that wall. As opposed to the flange being on the outside pressing the seal apart when under pressure & increasing the odds of springing a leak. Or worse, the reactor being jettisoned like a safety plug should the studs break off.

    Could one assume then that with the above configuration of the reactor mounted to the inner wall of the boiler, that the reactor core itself can be removed through the center of the flange without removal of the outer casing. This could involve just the hermetically sealed charge/insert or include the resistor coils imbedded in the ceramic insert should they need checked or replaced.

    I ask because in a comment you posted “When charges have to be changed the system is fast.”
    This configuration would be fast & possibly even done without shutting down the entire system to change a single dead reactor.

    Also with this design, The outer reactor shell could be built robust enough to last years or decades & become a physical part of the boiler. The reactor itself would then just be the core charge & resistor assembly.

  26. NCY

    Would it be possible to hook up a thermoelectric generator to an Ecat (with the Ecat as the heat source), produce electricity and with the aid of a small battery for a buffer, loop the electricity back into the Ecat for a demonstration device? Thermoelectic seems the simplest for this as they commonly have efficiencies of 5-8% which may be plenty for this application.
    NCY

  27. Andrea Rossi

    NCY:
    Any electric energy source is good for the E-Cat drive, provided :
    1- it must be alternate current ( the E-Cat cannot work with direct current)
    2- it must be e very elastic source, due to the control system technology
    3- it must have an efficiency enough to save the economic convenience of the E-Cat
    For these reasons the integration of the Seebeck Effect with the so called Rossi Effect does not work: so far the efficiency of the Seebeck Effect is too low ( max 5%, more likely 3%, minus the loss to convert DC into AC).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr Rossi:
    Do you think that gas will substitute electric power to make the E-Cats work?

  34. JCRenoir

    Dr Rossi:
    Can you explain better the “five sigma” thing?
    JCRenoir

  35. Andrea Rossi

    JCRenoir:
    The classic example is the case of flipping a coin: you have a 50% chance that it will be face 1 and 50% that it will be face 2. Obviously if you flip 100 times the coin, it is unlikely you get 50 F1 and 50 F2, most likely you will get 45-55 times either one face or the other: this interval 45-55 is in this example “sigma 1″; means that if you find from 45 through 55 times a face flipping 100 times, there is no event at all, because it is normal. If a stretch of 10 is sigma 1, we will have a stretch of 20 = sigma 2, a stretch of 30= sigma 3, a stretch of 40= sigma 4, a stretch of 50= sigma 5; this means that the higher the value of sigma, the higher the possibility that there is something, that you are looking for, that makes a work: in the case of the coin, can be a trick that makes the coin fraudolent, in case of Physics can be a force that breaks the symmetry or something else. If you get a sigma 5 the probability that there is a break of the normality is very close to be certain ( in Physics nothing is certain, everything has a higher or lower grade of probability).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  36. Roberto

    Dear Andrea, two questions:
    The current international situation is affecting the delay of the report release?
    Without Focardi and the fantastic Italian academic world made ​​of humble people would have the E-Cat existed ?
    Regards, Roberto

  37. Andrea Rossi

    Roberto:
    I do not see how the current international situation could affect the report release. The Report of the ITP has been delayed by nothing but the necessity of a proper review. All Physicists know that the publication of an important paper can take from 6 to 12 months.
    Prof. Sergio Focardi has given a strong help to the development of the E-Cat.
    Many Professors from the Italian academic world have given an important contribution. The E-Cat is the result of an international team work without which the E-Cat probably could not have been born.

    Andrea Rossi,

    Sigma can be two different things:
    1- a boson of the family of Barions, inside the Hadron system. Is a virtual particle, can have positive, neutral and negative charge.
    2- a probabilistic interval that measures statistically the probability that an event is real: for example, sigma 1 makes the extraordinary event unlikely, sigma five makes the event close to certain.

    About the Gabriela’s experiment I finally got the setup schema:

    1) What happens if NL2 is put before D2 (after b)?
    2) Why do you need to put the infrared beam (that hit O) before NL2?

However, i would like to see alive the Rossi-Focardy effects creation of energy in the Ni-H systems and show this fact for my friends and students. Even simple and without the resources to long working model of a power of several watts. As an example, is a model internal combustion engine for school . They twisted and smoked, they can be taken apart and repaired, but for commercial engines are not competitors in any case, and not threatened anybody’s patents or business. Also the question of finance for the purchase of large E-сat will be perceived our potential sponsors much closer after meeting with the current model

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you please explain now, after a few years, the reason why 1 MW was the minimum size of output that you offered to customers ?
    As people know, the (original) 1MW plant consists of modules of +/- 30kW.

    Since your R&D allows to have better control on the Rossi-Effect, nowadays it may be possible to have a continuous and guaranteed output with units smaller than 1 MW. Do you think that smaller units are a viable option ?

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

    Dear Andrea,

    Good news about the movement of the 1MW plant from your factory to the customers’ factory! Is transporting the plant a difficult procedure? I hope it is not something that is easily damaged.

  59. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    It seems to me there must be an optimal size for the nickel particles used in the Rossi effect. I suppose too large a particle and the surface area effect decreases. Too small a particle and the small particle melts by the generate energy before the thermal energy can be conducted away. Comments?

  60. Andrea Rossi

    Mark Saker:
    The 1 MW plant is in the factory of a Customer of IH. As far as I know, the Customer will not allow any video for the time being. IH has not jurisdiction in the factories of the Customers as for what is related to videos to be published. Eventually specific visits, as I already said, will be allowed, but it is too soon to talk about this.

    Dear Andrea,

    ‘If’ the report is positive, will you be able to supply at least some video or a photo of the new 1MW plant running to release at the same time

    At the very least, it will give the media a nice video-bite to play on the news? Perhaps you could speak with IH marketing (although I would hope they have thought of this already)!

    I really hope the report is released soon, I’m getting far too anxious! :)

  69. Hello Andrea,

    Recently people who follow news about the ECat have been discussing William McDonough, who has collaborated with Tom Darden in various projects. Mr. McDonough’s “Cradle-to-Cradle” site encourages industry to develop and enrich ecosystems (as opposed to minimizing harm).

    It would seem to be a Phenomenological approach to the industrial process.

    Are you familiar with William McDonough’s work such as “Cradle-to-Cradle”?

    Only for sake of truth, the “simple” explanation is based on QM, the “less simple” is a complete reformulation of phisics from the fundamentals as you ask, so in contrast with QM and Relativity. ======================================

    Dear Silvio,
    by reformulation of physics I mean from fundamentals agree to the logic.
    In my oppinion go back in the time is not agree to logic.

    I dont see advantage in replacing an old theory as Quantum Mechanics, developed from some absurd postulates as the Bohr Principle of Complementarity, by other new theory developed from new absurd postulates.

    Wladimir,

    Since you believe that aether and space are identical with each other, how would it be possible for you to know that there is a greater density of aether near a star since the measuring rod that exists near the star is contracted due to gravity to the same degree that aether is condensed? In other words, the greater density would look average (d=1) when measured using a contracted rod. (The only solution, of course, is to consider space as nonphysical and therefore beyond the influence of physical processes.)
    =============================================

    Joe,
    the fact that the physical properties of the aether cannot be measured by experiments does not mean that they do not exist.
    It is only a limitation of the technology available.

    Michelson did not succeed to detect the existence of the aether with his experimment, but today new experiments made via new technologies are proving its existence.

    Dear Andrea, always you are telling of “negative or positive” … This is good for ITP and NDA, but… you must know how the e_cats – warm and hot ;-) – operate and what they are producing… What about this? I think you may be more affermative… all in your clear responsability… I apologize for my poor english and… good luck for your R&D… and busyness!

    For sake of truth, in Reciprocal System time is ONLY an ASPECT of motion, 3Dtime is a deduction from postulates, not an ad hoc postulate. Material sector (3Dspace+clock time) and Cosmic sector (3Dtime+clock space) are ONLY PROJECTIONS. As you say Time and Space are mental objects. The only real thing is Motion.

    Silvio,

    Let us assume that time is physical.
    In that case, it would be described as linear since we observe events evolving in one temporal direction. But a linear dimension also implies a potential negative direction – a going backwards in time. But since we do not observe such a backwards evolution of events, we can safely and scientifically (since science is based on observation) conclude that time is therefore not a linear dimension. And what is more, if it is not a linear dimension, it is most certainly not an entity consisting of three linear dimensions. The Reciprocal System by Larson is really just an enforced symmetry on what we popularly call 3D space and 1D time, rendering a 3D time and 1D space. But such an act is gratuitous, a mere concoction that will most certainly fail in predicting physical phenomena. Any theory that is solid is derived from first principles – built from the bottom up. The Reciprocal System was built in a lateral movement – a horizontal work rather than the needed vertical one.

    All the best,
    Joe

    Dear Andrea,

    1 – Are there any E-Cat reactors in China at this time?

    2 – As Chief Scientist, do you get to choose who is hired to head the Chinese research project?

    3 – Where will the funding for the Chinese research project originate?

    4 – Have you considered opening an E-Cat acadamy for when the tech starts entering the market in a big way? Those who enrolled could study theory, operation of reactors, construction, safety, etc. Then they could be certified to work E-Cat related jobs in manufacturing, maintenance, servicing, inspecting, etc. I’d be interested in enrolling.

    Thank you.

    The two objects must have the same identical resonance. What would Wladimir think of this. As I have said this subject is fascinating. Regards Eric Ashworth
    =========================================

    Eric,
    my friend Dr. Claudio Nassif is the author of a new version for the Theory of Relativity, by introducing the concept the aether in the Einstein’s theory.

    Nassif already published 4 papers in the most prestigious journals of Physics, as for instance in the International Journal of Modern Physics D.

    His theory is named Symmetric Special Relativity – SSR.

    In his theory Nassif shows that there is in the aether a sort of propagation of longitudinal waves with speed several times faster than the speed of light. They can cross the universe in few seconds.

    And Nassif supposed that such very fast interaction could be the cause of the entanglement in the Alain Aspect experiment.

    However such explanation supposed by Nassif cannot work, because such very fast interaction propagates itself LONGITUDINALLY along the aether.

    But in order to change the polarization of a photon there is need to apply a rotation in the photon. In order words, there is need to change the angular momentum. But the longitudinal propagations faster than light are not able to produce a change in the angular momentum of a photon, because they are longitudinal.

    That’s why your idea (similar to that supposed by Nassif) cannot explain the “apparent” entanglement in the Alain Aspect experiment.

    Quantum Entanglement has interesting explanations at the cost that you exit from the mainstream phisics…
    A “simple” explanation is that the entangled particles are connected THRU time… you find details in Transactional Interpretation o QM by John Cramer.
    A “less simple” explanation is that space and time are not phisical containers but only aspects of the real constituent of whole universe: scalar motion. We live in a projection of scalar motion in a 3D space+clock time reference system, but there is also a reciprocal 3Dtime+clock space reference system… You find details in Reciprocal System of theory by Larson.

    COMMENT

    Silvio,
    500 years ago Galileo said that science and logic cannot be divorced. If somebody creates a theory divorced to logic, you can be sure that his theory is wrong, because the Nature does not work divorced to logic.

    The problem of Modern Physics started when Einstein proposed a theory divorced to logic, where an empty space can have contraction and dilation.
    Following the Einstein’s example, the creators of the Quantum Mechanics, lead by Heisenberg, developed a theory divorced to logic too, because they supposed be impossible to create a theory in the field of quantum physics compatible with the logic.

    The origin of the crisis in the Modern Physics was the empty space proposed by Einstein.
    Because of the elimination of the physical space (aether) in the Theoretical Physics, many hidden mechanisms used by the Nature in the production of the phenomena were neglected by the theorists. And this is the reason why many of them used the desperate resource of trying crazy theoretical solutions.

    So, the physicists were induced to believe that Nature is no logic, and such conclusion opened the door for all the sort of theories based on several crazy hypothesis.

    In such a panorama, along the years, when a new paradox appeared defying the current theories, the theorist used to propose solutions divorced to the logic.

    Many experiments published along the 5 last years are showing that Quantum Mechanics was developed from wrong foundations. And the experiment published by the journal Nature in 2011 showed that Einstein’s theory of empty space is wrong.

    Therefore,
    it is not now the time to keep the crazy solutions adopted by some theorists along the years with the aim to explain paradoxes not solved via the current Quantum Mechanics and the Theory of Relativity, because all those crazy solutions are based on the wrong foundations of Quantum Mechanics.

    It is now the time of starting everything again, from the zero, by introducing the concept of aether in the Relativity, and by introducing several new principles missing in the Quantum Mechanics.
    This is the only way.

    The Nature is not crazy.
    But crazy theories sometimes are proposed when some theorists develop them by starting up from the assumption that Nature is crazy.

    Wladimir,

    Aether (physical) and space (mental) are not identical with each other. How can you ascertain the dilation or contraction, i.e. the change in density, of aether without a FIXED space in which the aether could operate, and against which the aether could be measured?
    =======================================================

    Joe,
    I call density d=1 of the aether those regions far away of the presence of matter (for instance, the intergalactic space between stars).

    The density of the aether around a star could be established via the gravitational field of the star.
    Suppose that only one star was existing in the universe.
    The regions very far away of the star, where the gravity is practically zero, would be regions with density d=1 of the aether.
    In a point near to the star, the density of the aether would be changing proportional to the square of the distance between that point and the star.
