    Dear Andrea

    Whilst looking at and trying to understand the spectrum from the January Presentation ( http://www.ecatskdemo.com ) I had some probably wild thoughts about what signatures it might contain. I respect you maybe can’t talk about the details about that spectrum. However it led me down a path that gives me some ideas that are maybe for use of PV technology..

    Since those thoughts originated with your spectrum I thought I should share them with you.

    1. The first of these is what I mentioned yesterday about integrating with metal halide curing lamp technology these lamps shift the UVA spectrum for mercury vapor lamps to more useful and manageable longer wavelengths. And include compounds such as Iron Halide, Galium Halide etc. they are used to stimulate certain frequencies useful for curing. I suppose the UV from the e-Cat SK could be similarly converted.

    2. Vanadium is apparently very responsive in the region of interest.

    3. Vanadium doped Titanium Oxide can be used to further extend the spectrum down to optical wavelengths particularly useful to agriculture etc.

    4. Vanadium Oxide is a known material used for smart glass that can insulate from IR. Is reflective above a certain temperature and transparent bellow that temperature. This reflective/ transparent property can be switched on an off by applying an electrical current!. It very interesting.

    5. Yesterday I suggested putting the Metal Halide and perhaps by implication the nano particles Vanadium doped Titanium Oxide in a bulb surrounding the e-cat. But if the concept works then perhaps it could also be enabled with coatings on the PV cells.

    Rather than finding a PV cell that’s sensitive to UV it would then just be a matter of matching the fluorescence with the optimum sensitivity frequency of the PV cell.

    Perhaps rather than a flat PV surface say textured surface of micro rods would be optimum at capturing fluorescent light generated at the surface. Perhaps a reflective surface would transparent to UV but reflective to longer wavelengths would trap and reflect the fluorescent light radiated set from the coating back towards the cell. It would also maybe insulate the cell from heating from IR.

    Thanks for sharing the spectrum and allowing the thoughts it provokes. I hope these thoughts give something back

    Another idea would be to approach companies making OV cells for satellites. These are used out side the atmosphere do may be better suited to UV environment. I have no idea what optimisatiind they make but they may have some good ideas.

    Best Regards

    Stephen

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    in your recent posts, you are saying that you are already working with your Customers and that you are under NDA therefore, rightly, you can not give any information about them.
    I am sure you are aware of how much interest there is on this whole affair by all those who are following you for so many years.
    There are many blogs in which some write: “So much chatter, no visible results, so the E-Cat does not exist.”.
    Others say: “It is necessary to wait for at least one client to show up, and it can also take a long time.”
    I know that these opinions do not interest you at all, while you are working according to your plans.
    But here, in the world of those who follow you, there is all a ferment of impatient expectation.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

    Dear Andrea,
    From your answers I understand that what you are doing to make electricity is not a P.V., but something that makes e.m. directly from the core of the reactor. Am I right?

    Sailmenn,

    The corollary to your question is whether the photovoltaic could be fine tuned to match the output of the eCat-SK?

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Are you working on the PV E-Cat by yourself, or with people who have experience expertise in the photovoltaics field?

    Thank you,

    You think about PV, is it something like a mini sun surrounded by PV.
    The minisun fine tuned to the most optimal wavelength for the PV electro conversion?

  • Stephen

    If so and it can be down converted to optical wave lengths it could enable a wide range of other technologies too. From agriculture to conventional lighting sources etc.

  • Stephen

    I wonder if you put the ECat SK in side another larger bulb that contains metal halides if it would act as a stimulating UV source in that bulb that could be down converted to managegable or specifically matched or useful wave lengths by the metal halide.. Perhaps this could be better matched to existing PV technology and also perhaps allow its usage for UV curing lamps and screen printing technologies.

    Just an idea. Maybe a wild one.

  • Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    The impact of climate change will grow, with all the consequences that everyone knows well now. There is little time left for humanity to avoid reaching critical thresholds:
    Dr. Rossi, do not you feel a certain duty, to deploy your technology massively and quickly?
    From my point of view, the best way to achieve this goal would be to sell your patents to a leading manufacturer as it is done every day in the world of biotechnology.
    Regards,

    Michel

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The direct eCat-to-Photovoltaic conversion is very appealing for the following reasons:

    1. No moving mechanical parts in the energy production portion of the system.
    2. Conversion efficiency approaching or surpassing that of the Carnot cycle.
    3. Simpler concept – implies better reliability.

    The engineering challenges I foresee:

    a. Obtaining of high efficiency photovoltaic cells matched to the eCat-SK output spectrum.
    b. Adequate and simple thermal control to keep the photovoltaic cells sufficiently cool for high efficiency operation.
    c. Output stability/interactions between the eCat-SK and the photovoltaic cell electrical power generation.
    d. Packaging/geometry issues – size, shape, maintainability, etc.

  • Bob Belovich

    Dear Andrea

    Congratulations to you and your team for undertaking research in the production of electricity from an ecat.

    1. Does the ecat you employ for this effort operate at

    a. a higher temperature

    b. a lower temperature

    c. the same temperature

    as the commercial ecat sk?

    2. Are you working on developing an e-cat sk

    a. smaller in size than the one shown in the demonstration video?

    b. lower in power than the 20kw ecat sk

    c. Is a hand held ecat (exclusive of heat shielding) feasible?

    Thanks

    Bob Belovich

    Giuseppe:
    We are still in an early, albeit very promising, phase of our R&D on this issue. I am not able to answer your questions so far.
    Your considerations maybe right, but may also be wrong.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea,
    Reading your comments you look very positive versus the direct production of electric energy helped by PV cells and probably preferring it to the Carnot Cycle.
    But, what about dimensions?
    I can image the 20 KW SK you showed in January just a little bit bigger if coupled with a turbine and generator; in the same time I can image it very bigger if coupled
    with PV cells that has standard Quantum Efficiency.
    One other doubt is ‘efficiency’; is it correct to talk about efficiency (regarding Direct production vs Carnot cycle) regarding something that you have almost for free ( I mean the thermal output)?
    Best Regards, Giuseppe

    For the Clifford algebra this is an introductory paper, well done and simple to read:
    “A brief introduction to Clifford algebra” by Silvia Franchini, Giorgio Vassallo, Filippo Sorbello. February 2015

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    in your paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_ECat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    I noticed that the mathematical structure is derived from the Clifford algebra and from the Aharonov Bohm effect. Can you suggest a simple text where to understand more about these issues?
    Thank you if you can answer,

    Dear Andrea,
    1- is the schematic published on http://www.ecat-thenewfire.com with the seal of Leonardo Corporation and your signature authentic?
    2- if yes, is it complete ?

    Orsobubu:
    He,he,he…original is prohibitive, also because that kind of money must be spent for mankind…but my precise reproduction is still very beautiful: it is the exact reproduction in real dimensions, exactly as the original, with very intelligent comments. Got many ideas hyperwatching the drawings and the explications written first hand by Leonardo Da Vinci.

    Dear Andrea, I like hanging out at street markets to look for and buy illustrated books for childs with animals pictures and other naturalistic and technical themes, they were widespread in Italy in the 50s, 60s and 70s (when I was a child, Edizioni Piccoli, AMZ, ecc); they are worth between 1 and 5 euros each; an original nineteenth century edition of the explorer Von Humboldt, with scientific color renderings of birds and other Amazonian animals and plants, I could dream it costs several thousand euros. I smile at the idea that you can have an original by Leonardo, if things actually work out well…

    Prof:
    Intriguing question!
    During these days I am re-reading “Il Codice Atlantico” ( The Atlantic Codex ), the immense book that collects all the main folios of Leonardo Da Vinci: I am among the fortunate fellows that own an integral copy of it. Well, I found in this wonderful book evidence of the fact that at the beginning of the 16th century Leonardo Da Vinci made a project to use solar energy to make work for industrial purposes ( around the year 1510 ). I love this book, all the six thousand pages of it, because it spurs clouds of ideas.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    About your answer to Enea Romagnoli,
    I think the high loud of rock and roll is not due just to fear, but also to envy.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    My “secret dream” is an eCat-SK coupled with photovoltaic cells and a battery/inverter, suspended by cables off the ground, generating heat and/or light for months with a continuous output and no input. A test to show the “trolls” the technology.
