    I wonder if an Ecat XQ becomes more stable, and therefore easier to control, if she has been working for a while.
    A first runtime could therefore also be part of the production process.

  • JPR

    Do you still have one or more Ecat QX in continuous operation?

  • Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    As time goes on, I feel that my understanding of what’s happening inside the Quark my be improving — if I’m not mistaken on many issues or deluding myself.

    Here is my latest step by step thought process (my personal best estimate at this time).

    Note: First, to understand the fundamental electron cluster generating effect, I’ll consider a scenario in which the electrodes are either not hydrogenated (loaded to the point of embrittlement) or somehow protected by a barrier such as a diamond like carbon film to reduce the energy required for field emission. I’ll propose how hydrogenation could enhance energy production near the end.

    1) A high voltage pulse of DC current is applied to the cathode. This application of current is carefully controlled (by the use of a resistor and the basic parameters of the device) to push past the point of ordinary glow discharge into “Abnormal Glow Discharge” without moving beyond to a high current “arc discharge.” At some point before an arc discharge is established, an “EVO: Exotic Vacuum Object” (a torodial structure composed of a flow of electrons) is emitted from the cathode.

    2) The emitted EVO — likely with heavy ions trapped inside the body of the torus — formed starts to move forward towards the anode. At this moment multiple phenomena are occurring.

    a) The heavy ions in the core of the EVO are being anomalously accelerated towards the anode. This is probably due to the manipulation of the zero point energy field by the seemingly impossible concentration of electrons, producing a “warp drive” like effect that can screen the properties of mass/inertia.

    b) A spray of nano-particles, likely metal nuclei from the “ecton” explosion on the cathode surface, is anomalously accelerated forward. This is due to a longitudinal force or LINEAR “magnetic vector potential” imparting a powerful motive force towards the anode.

    c) A powerful anomalous acceleration of ions onto the cathode (in the opposite direction of the EVO and spray of nano-particles) takes place. This is due to a motive force or vector potential in the opposite direction.

    3) We have one large (still a small fraction of a micrometer in diameter) or many smaller (perhaps hundredths of a micrometer in diameter) moving towards the anode. Likely, as described by Kenneth Shoulders, they are being guided along by the dielectric wall of the reactor (likely quartz in this case). Because of the hydrogen/lithium gas mixture in the capillary tube forming the reactor, they don’t usually travel along the walls and etch channels in the surface. (Of course, if they did, they would continually use these channels on each subsequent cycle.) They are now being accelerated even faster to potentially a fraction of the speed of light, with the KE of their entrained heavy ions much higher than the input energy used to accelerate them. The longitudinal, linear magnetic vector potential they are generating is still being directed in the forward direction. This re-enforces the movement of negatively charged ions, single electrons, and other EVOs towards the anode.

    4) The EVOs crash into the anode. Not even considering the multiple ways that the anomalous KE could induce fusion reactions, the electrons released creates a pulse of current. Likewise, only a brief moment before, other ions (including protons) were accelerated into the cathode. This could also produce a pulse that could be picked up on an oscilloscope. From this reactions, energy extracted from the active vacuum can be turned into real world power in the circuit. Sometimes, these overunity pulses may be in the form of an alternating current (depending upon which electrode is being impacted) that can be rectified into direct current.

    5) This overunity electrical energy could potentially be the source of the overheating in your control box. I expect the engineering to reduce the overheating is challenging because the electrical power being generated is of a strange nature due to fast rate of change (powerful spikes) and the magnitude of the current produced.

    6) In addition to the power in your circuit leading back to the control box, I expect that longitudinal wave emissions (magnetic vector potential) or what’s called — using the slang-like jargon of the free energy field — “scalar waves.” If you placed an appropriately designed antenna near either end of the Quark (perhaps a hollow metal sphere or linear length of conductive rod) you could pick up even more power that’s being produced but is currently escaping collection.

    7) If the circuit is properly setup with the proper impedance to prevent an arc discharge from forming, trains of repeating EVO generating pulses can be produced from a single trigger event. If they start to decline, another can be applied.

    Addendum #1

    I’d like to add that utilizing hydrogen embrittled electrodes and lithium in the interior of the reactor may change everything — dramatically enhancing power production. This is because the powerful impact of anomalously accelerated heavy ions on both the cathode and anode (sprayed out of the cathode towards the anode, carried in the interior of the EVO towards the anode, or accelerated in the reverse direction onto the cathode) may induce powerful nuclear reactions. Here are the types I see being possible.

    0) There are papers online indicating that while !ACTUALLY IN FLIGHT BETWEEN ELECTRODES! EVO’s may pull in positive ions, accelerate them to high energies in the MeV range, make them collide with other ions in their interior, and produce nuclear reactions. This energy may help sustain or even grow the EVO in size, but the majority of the KE would not be deposited until impact on the anode when the structure of the electron cluster is destroyed. Note, the high magnetic fields inside the body of the torus where the positive ions are contained during transit may somehow screen the coulomb barrier.

    1) Upon impact with the anode or cathode, the anomalously accelerated heavy ions (even those not contained in an EVO) may have enough kinetic energy to produce traditional nuclear reactions on the atoms they impact.

    2) Upon impact with the hydrogen embrittled anode or cathode, structural damage inflicted upon the brittle metal lattice may cleave bonds that result in fracto-emission of electrons resulting in the production of additional EVOs! These EVOs will produce structural damage in both directions, ahead of them and behind them, thus, doing more damage to the lattice. This creates a self-sustaining cycle of additional EVO production, extraction of energy from the vacuum that may be thermalized, and continuous nuclear events.

    a) Some EVOs produced by fracto-emission in the lattice may accelerate easily available protons and produce nuclear reactions by simple collisions.

    b) Some EVOs produce by fracto-emission may be small enough borough through the electron shells of nickel atoms (because the protons are being disguised by the electron cluster), get close to the nucleus, and when not ejected produce fusion reactions.

    3) The use of very highly loaded and embrittled, perhaps even supersaturated, nickel-manganese electrodes would increase the production of energy in the reactor. The one drawback to this could be the production, depending upon the fuel components utilized, of unwanted radiation (for example if you were utilizing a deuterium atmosphere instead of light hydrogen). By minimizing hydrogenation of the the electrodes, zero point energy could be tapped with less radiation emitted. Or, maybe, you have tuned the reaction to maximize the fusion of protium and lithium, resulting only in alpha particles with only a low incidence of other reactions.

    Addendum #2

    Here I’d like to express how marveled I am at your invention. If my thinking is correct, which it may or may not be, you’ve created a device that harnesses vacuum energy to catalyze the production of nuclear reactions — with the energy extracted from both processes expressed as heat, light, or electricity. Moreover, with proper configuration, the reaction force against the cathode could easily be made into a source of thrust for space craft propulsion. And, as I’ve said before, I think most of your output energy is being lost to the environment in the form of longitudinal broadcasts of magnetic vector potential that are not being captured.

    If this is the case, Bravo!

    Sincerely,
    Hank

    PS: This was written quickly, so I’m hoping there aren’t too many typos or errors.

    Dear Andrea,

    If you recall our discussions in June 2016 about the QX reactor based Remote Area / Emergency power plant that I planned to build in 8ft containers. Please refer to the discussion on ECW: https://e-catworld.com/2016/06/22/remote-area-disaster-relief-acdc-power-heated-air-warm-water-and-clean-water-e-cat-quarkx-system-concept-engineer48/ and the plant schematic: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/aee048a84a8998a39ebced0c5ead6fc90504f58983946fd90df23c257890acd0.jpg

    I’m still keen to move forward with this project as I believe these plants can deliver life saving energy and clean water to many of the world’s population that are energy and clean water poor. I’m sure many storm damaged areas of the planet would also benefit from drop in QX reactor based power plants delivering electricity, clean water, hot water and steam.

    Back then you shared the QX could output 10% of total energy as electricity and that you had a goal to achieve at least 20% by product launch. Is the 10% still available and have you achieved the 20% goal?

    I look forward to receiving my 1st QX reactor and building a pilot plant.

    Rodney Nicholson, I cannot agree more as the world does evolve and this is something that the teacher was totally unaware of. Similarities of vibration, group together and consequently form two antagonistic groups that cannot agree with regards that of intelligence which verses consciousness . However, fortunately for the the forces of nature positive penetrates the negative and is able to wave it good bye. It is the time transition that is aggravating but also it can be looked upon as the comical situation. Would you jeopardize your source of income for nothing other than an idea even if the idea was grounded in common sense. This is the problem but life is a challenge and this is what makes it exciting, especially from the intelligent dimension. Regards Eric Ashworth.

    In response to Hugh Maguire’s December 13 at 3:06 AM: “…. This characteristic alone is basis enough for an attack from the academic camp, as it demonstrates nonconformity, an incorrigible act.”….

    The quote reminds me of one of my father’s school reports as a young boy. The teacher wrote: “This boy shows signs of independent thinking, which must be supressed at all costs.”

    For anyone not familiar with Ken Shoulders, your time will not be wasted by googling his name.

    Dear Andrea, My thoughts are that to try and explain the LENR process as a unique stand alone process that requires an understanding outside of known physics is a detriment to its acceptance within the academic establishment. Therefore, to project the LENR phenomena into the accepted world of physical phenomena will help clear many of its present day obstacles. This I believe can be done but only by the study of certain phenomenas outside of the LENR process. I will attempt to explain what I mean. My source of study is the Wikipedia web site but I am sure there are other places of equal value or more.

    There are two dimensions of existence. There is the dimensionless state being the ‘Time Crystal’ from which no energy can be extracted whereas the dimensional state is able to donate degrees of energy. By keeping these two dimensions in mind we are able to explore the many avenues regarding various phenomenas that originate as a direct result of the existence of these two states.

    For instance:- Fraunhoferlines – Dark lines in the Solar Spectrum (could be termed ‘Time Lines’) – Telluric currents Telluric corrections – Contaminates/corrections and there effect, being the producing of a vibration.

    Any substance that enters a ‘Time Crystal’ or a Fraunhoferline can be considered a contaminant and thereby subjected to a degree of force which can result in a very minute vibration/hum to that of a crackle or as in some instances a very loud bang. This phenomena depends upon the specific degree of intensity i.e. whether on the micro scale or the macro scale of existence.

    The current understanding with regards what is termed the ‘world hum’ is none existent because there is a lack of knowledge regarding the full understanding of these two distinct dimensions with regards how they can come into being both in nature and by artificial means and how they interact. I suspect the ‘world hum’ is caused by natural voids within the oceans. Islands and land masses create deep voids between them that contain a soft energy content/water. Obviously some people are susceptible to these vibrations whereas others are not. This is because it depends upon the density of the receptor. The Earth is an evolving entity that responds to the forces it encounters on its path of evolution.

    If we can investigate these phenomenas without just blindly accepting them as an occurrence, the LENR process could become recognized and accepted as just another avenue of a known cause. These two dimensions I believe are the foundations required in the understanding of physics and can I believe be represented using geometry and I am sure mathematics but it needs specialists willing to collaborate which of course requires finance. This could be something to consider but in the meantime I wish you all the best.

    Regards Eric Ashworth.
    P.S. I am sure there are more phenomenas in existence that I am not aware of that could help unravel this LENR paradox.

  • Martyn Aubrey

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    There has been much discussion (here and on E-Cat World) about whether the RF signal across the QX is generated in the control unit box or originates within the QX itself.

    Is it possible that the frequency of the signal is dependent on, or is caused by, the distance between the two opposing faces of the nickel electrodes of the E-Cat QX, in much the same way that the frequency of a crystal oscillator is decided by the distance across the two faces of the slice of crystal?

    I hope that you are able to answer this (Please not publish this if it asks too much).

    Good luck for your path towards industrialisation into the New Year.

    Kind Regards,
    Martyn Aubrey

    Arjen:
    My role so far has not been only R&D. I directed the construction of the industrial 1 MW plant and the factories of Bondeno, Bologna, Ferrara, Miami. In my life I directed factories arriving to have more than 200 employees in Milan from 1972 through 2007, when I turned my job 100% to the LENR field of operation.
    Now my focus is 100% on the industrialization of the product, together with all the members of out Great team, along two main threads:
    1- upgrade the control system ( we already made importantant progress from Nov 24th 17 through today )
    2- make the production robotized lines
