A process (international patent publication n° WO 2009/125444 A1) capable of producing large amounts of energy by a nuclear fusion process between nickel and hidrogen, occurring below 1000 [...]
It is well known that in chemical reactions, and more specifically in processes used to obtain energy, as for example oil, gas and carbon combustion, only some electronVolts (eV) can be obtained for every couple of atoms involved. This depends on the fact that binding energies of external atomic electrons are in the [...]
In this paper we report the results obtained with a process and apparatus not described here in detail and protected by patent in 90 countries, consisting of a system whose heat output is up to hundred times the electric energy input. As a consequence, the principle of the conservation of [...]
Proton capture by Nickel nuclei obviously requires the overcoming of an electrostatic potential barrier which opposes the process. For Ni58(the more abundant Nickel isotope), the maximum potential energy Vmax occurs at a distance R between Ni and proton nuclei centers equal to the sum of their radii, that is R ≈ 6,1 [...]
In conclusion, our process and apparatus is the first and unique system, existing today, able to obtain energy from nuclear fusion reactions; furthermore, because the ingredients are Nickel and water (to obtain Hydrogen), this is an endless energy source for the planet, without emissions in atmosphere.
