  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Dr Valerij G. Kiselev:
    To answer your question a precise theory about what happens in the reactor is necessary. As for me, I am still working on it, using the empirical data we get from the perations
    The only thing we know for sure is the amount of mass we lose starting from the amount of delta energy.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • Enrico Billi

    How much is the period for the maintenance? There is a scheduled time when you need to stop the system to change some parts?
    E.B.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr William Collis:
    Thank you for your contribution,
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Daniel Zavela:
    Watts in: 400 wh/h
    Watts out: 15,000 wh/h
    Yes, we can turn off the input current, but we prefer to maintain a drive and the reasons are very difficult to explain without violating my confidentiality restraints.
    The reaction becomes self sustaining.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Huggins:
    The sound ( kind of tac, tac, tac…) is made by the water pump, which is a precision dosator .
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Guy Parent,
    You are correct, but I distinguished between the mass of Ni which reacts and the mass of Ni that you need in the reactor to obtain that the necessary mass reacts. The efficiency is very low, due to the probabilistic issue.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    YES, SOON the report of prof. Levi will be ready.
    Sì, Presto
    Cordialità,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    EXCUSE ME, BUT WE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE SERVER, SO YOU GOT A BLACK OUT, NOW WE FIXED IT.
    Dear Enrico:
    For those kind of inquiries the address is
    info@leonardocorp1996.com
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Enrico Billi

    Dear Andrea,
    if i wanna buy where should i call?
    Enrico Billi

  • Bruno Galvan

    Congratulazioni per l’esperimento. Il prof. Levi pubblichera una relazione con gli esiti delle misurazioni?

  • Guy Parent

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    One picogram is 1/1000 of a billionth of a gram. Why do you refer to picograms as they are many orders of magnitude smaller than grams?

    According to your figures (.1 g per 10 kwh), 1 Kg of Nickel would deliver 10 kW for 10 000 hours, roughly 14 months. Is this correct?

    Regards

  • ahuggins

    We hear a pulsating sound in the video of the operating catalyzer. What is causing the sound?

  • Greetings from California and congratulations on your successful work!

    Can you simply state what the Watts IN are versus Watts OUT?
    Can you turn off the input current? Does the reaction become self-sustaining?

  • I’d like to answer chrismb’s comment on how Nickel can produce energy whilst its isotopes have the highest binding energy. The answer is that a proton has zero binding energy per nucleon and consequently the binding energy of a composite proton / nickel (excited) nucleus will be appropriately higher. What counts is the energy of the reaction. Almost all proton captures by natural isotopes are exothermic (exception Heliium).

  • Enrico Billi

    The picogram estimation is for every hour?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Rich Murray:
    In the cell there are several milligrams of Ni
    To make 10 kWh/h the consume of Ni and H is in the order of several picograms, but considering that not all the Ni in the reactor reacts, the actual consumption, to make 10 kWh/h is of about 0,1 g of Ni and 0,01 g of H
    Yes, other elements are used, upon which we have to maintain confidentiality until the patent pending becomes a patent
    The dimensions of a unit like the one you are thinking of, of course not considering the authorization issues, could be about one cm 50 x 100 x 50 with the present technology.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • Valerij G. Kiselev

    Dear Colleagues,

    Do you understand the mechanism of the reaction on a quantitative level?

  • Giorgio R.

    Regarding hot water production, could we know the exact amount (in liters) of hot water that was produced during the 30 mins of the test?

    What was the longest run you made with your apparatus to date? Hours? Days? Weeks?

  • Enrico Billi

    So how much is your estimation of gramm/KW ratio? How much is for your specific system the ration OutputEnergy/InputEnergy?

  • George Pappas

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Which radioactive Cu isotope do you find in the most abundance during your process and is it true that at this time you are unable to provide the identity of additional ingredients in your process?

  • I just realized you were now accepting and answering questions on your blog.
    How much Ni is in the cell?
    How much total energy, heat and radiation, is produced per hour for a gram of Ni?
    Are some other elements used to facilitate the reactions?
    How small can a working cell be made — for instance, for home power units buried in the yard?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr William:
    What you are requesting is contained in our patent application. Other Scientists already have reached the effect using the informations contained in the patent application, which is published also on the Journal Of Nuclear Physics.
    But you must be careful about this: this work must be done only in professional laboratories and with respect of all the safety requirements. Hydrogen is highly explosive and nickel powder is very toxic. To make such experiments without the necessary experience and professional instrumentation can be lethal.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Kerob ( or Whatever):
    Thank you very much for your suggestion.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Thank You,
    Andrea Rossi

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr William Collis:
    Thank you very much for your participating to this conference: I particularly appreciate your presence here.
    1- the vidence of copper production in past has been found using an atomic microscope in the University of Bologna. The same we will make now: we will bring the sanple of the Ni we used to the lab of UNIBO and detect Cu
    2- in past we found them by means of the secondary ions mass spectrometer of the University of Padua. We will do the same now
    3- just as you turn on and off your television set
    4- yes, by an analysis. To measure the difference of mass you have to use the charge for months, because what you consume in a day is in the order of picograms
    Thank you very much,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Paul Neilson:
    Your question is important. The pressure of Hydrogen gas in the tank before the test was 80 bars and at the end of the test was 80 bars. The consumption of Hydrogen is in the range of picograms, not enough to determine a delta P in the tank.
    Thank you and
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    This information is confidential. I am very sorry, but our patent is still pending, therefore there will be some data that we cannot release, to avoid heavy legal issues with our licensees.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Enrico: we estimate the consumption of Ni and H has been in the order of picograms.
    We do not use W.
    Warmest Regards,
    Andrea

  • Enrico Billi

    A question for the conference: how much nickel is used? If the nickel is spread on the tungsten: how much is the estimation about the power released by the system for unit of surface or unit of volume?

  • What is the ratio of hydrogen isotope to metal atoms you reach at your preferred operating level?

  • Paul Neilson

    I read the 22 steps of love blog on your press conference demo today. It is unclear from the translation as to the amount of H2 consumed. Next big future has a picture of your apparatus and I can see the pressure gauge on the H2 tank but no flowmeter on the H2 line.

    So my question is what was the gas cylinder pressure before the demo and after the demo?

    We are very excited over this demo and would like to put to rest any doubt we have about the amount of H2 consumed during the demo.

    Thanks

  • Just to get the ball rolling may I be the first to ask some questions for Press Conference.

    1) What is the evidence for copper production?
    2) Is there any evidence for isotopic anomalies?
    3) How is the power switched on and off?
    4) Is there evidence of consumption of a fuel?

    I see the demo went well!.

  • GOOD LUCK !!!
    I WILL OBSERVE YOU DIRECTLY FROM ZÜRICH (SWITZERLAND).
    SINCERELY,
    DR.KATHRINE M. (IBM RESEARCH LABORATORIES).

    Nickel-62 has the highest nucleon binding energy of any matter in the universe, at 8.7946MeV/nucleon *

    Yet it seems to appear in the claims that 62Ni has some net nuclear-energy production possibility.

    As 62Ni has the highest binding energy of all known matter, surely the only way to get energy from 62Ni is as a chemical reaction?

    *(It isn’t 56Fe – a common mistake! It is the binding energy that is the thermodynamic end-point, not the lowest per-nucleon mass of 56Fe. 56Fe has a higher proton:neutron ratio than 62Ni, this is why it has a lower per-nucleon mass. 56Fe binding energy is 8.79025MeV/nucleon.)

  • kerob

    I hope you have taken measures for this live press conference broadcasting. I can assure you your bandwidth won’t be enough for the amount of people that will be watching this unless you are using a service like livestream. At least you will be recording it and putting it back online afterwards.

    And good luck.

  • William

    The following is my question.

    Sergio Focardi and Andrea Rossi,

    Would you please provide a diagram, a material list, and instructions for the simplest possible version of your cold fusion cell that can generate a self sustained reaction? I am sure there are hundreds or thousands of individuals on the internet that would be thrilled to replicate and confirm your technology.

  • Giorgio R.

    Will you show the working machine during the press conference?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Sorry, the test in Bologna is restricted to a selected number of experts. You will be able to participate to the press conference online logging in the Journal Of Nuclear Physics.
    Warm regards,
    Andrea Rossi

  • Giorgio R.

    Is it possible to attend to the presentation directly in your lab in Bologna?

  • kurt9

    Dr. Rossi,

    I’ve been a skeptic of “cold” fusion for a long, long time. However, I have always wanted cold fusion to be real.

    I got to tell you. I really, really hope you guys are right, that you are successful in this endeavor, and that you go on to make tons and tons of money.

    I will definitely watch your presentation this Saturday.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Rothwell: to join the press conference of Saturday January 15th you can go to
