Laser-driven technique for creating fusion is now within reach, say researchers

A laser-driven technique for creating fusion that dispenses with the need for radioactive fuel elements and leaves no toxic radioactive waste is now within reach, say researchers.

Dramatic advances in powerful, high-intensity lasers are making it viable for scientists to pursue what was once thought impossible: creating energy based on hydrogen-boron reactions. And an Australian physicist is in the lead, armed with a patented design and working with international collaborators on the remaining scientific challenges.

In a paper in the scientific journal Laser and Particle Beams today, lead author Heinrich Hora from the University of New South Wales in Sydney and international colleagues argue that the path to hydrogen-boron fusion is now viable, and may be closer to realization than other approaches, such as the deuterium-tritium fusion approach being pursued by U.S. National Ignition Facility (NIF) and the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor under construction in France.

"I think this puts our approach ahead of all other fusion energy technologies," said Hora, who predicted in the 1970s that fusing hydrogen and boron might be possible without the need for . Rather than heat fuel to the temperature of the Sun using massive, high-strength magnets to control superhot plasmas inside a doughnut-shaped toroidal chamber (as in ITER), hydrogen-boron fusion is achieved using two powerful lasers in rapid bursts, which apply precise non-linear forces to compress the nuclei together.

Hydrogen-boron fusion produces no neutrons and, therefore, no radioactivity in its primary reaction. And unlike most other sources of power production - like coal, gas and nuclear, which rely on heating liquids like water to drive turbines - the energy generated by hydrogen-boron fusion converts directly into electricity. But the downside has always been that this needs much higher temperatures and densities - almost 3 billion degrees Celsius, or 200 times hotter than the core of the Sun.

However, dramatic advances in laser technology are close to making the two-laser approach feasible, and a spate of recent experiments around the world indicate that an 'avalanche' could be triggered in the trillionth-of-a-second blast from a petawatt-scale laser pulse, whose fleeting bursts pack a quadrillion watts of power. If scientists could exploit this avalanche, Hora said, a breakthrough in proton-boron fusion was imminent.

"It is a most exciting thing to see these reactions confirmed in recent experiments and simulations," said Hora, an emeritus professor of theoretical physics at UNSW. "Not just because it proves some of my earlier theoretical work, but they have also measured the laser-initiated chain reaction to create one billion-fold higher energy output than predicted under thermal equilibrium conditions."

Together with 10 colleagues in six nations - including from Israel's Soreq Nuclear Research Centre and the University of California, Berkeley - Hora describes a roadmap for the development of hydrogen-boron fusion based on his design, bringing together recent breakthroughs and detailing what further research is needed to make the reactor a reality.

An Australian spin-off company, HB11 Energy, holds the patents for Hora's process. "If the next few years of research don't uncover any major engineering hurdles, we could have prototype reactor within a decade," said Warren McKenzie, managing director of HB11.

"From an engineering perspective, our approach will be a much simpler project because the fuels and waste are safe, the reactor won't need a heat exchanger and steam turbine generator, and the lasers we need can be bought off the shelf," he added.

hydrogen-boron fusion is now viable
Huh? The hydrogen-boron fusion requires one hundred-times higher temperatures for ignition than deuterium-tritium fusion, which failed at NIF in spectacular way. I suspect, the innocent tax payers are cheated once again, especially in the light of cold fusion research. For example Unified gravity Corp (Morgan Hill, California company) fuses hydrogen with lithium by using only 1000 volts, i.e. the energy accessible by every microwave oven. Work smarter, not harder - and cheaper too...

one exception as the ideal clean fusion process – without neutron production – is the fusion of hydrogen (H) with the boron isotope 11B
Only in theory: in reality this fusion generates 2 - 3% of neutrons anyway, particularly because it results helium which fuses with protons too under formation of neutrons. That means, the reactor will still generate deadly neutron flux, which would make all metal parts of it radioactive. Whereas the results of Unified Gravity are perfectly reproducible, reliably free of any neutrons and published in mainstream journals (1, 2, 3). The way in which nuclear lobby systematically ignores these results on behalf of futile and expensive hot fusion research should be prosecuted like every other scam and public embezzlement of tax payers money.

The sweet secret of fusion is, these lasers can be way less intensive. For example Lief Holmlid achieves production of neutrons, muons and another fusion products just with common pulse laser. The trick is in utilization of directional energy of laser in "Astroblaster effect", not in formation of chaotically colliding plasma, which essentially wastes this energy in myriads of random collisions. But I don't consider laser fusion useful from long term perspective, as it works in pulse regime and it wastes lotta energy anyway.

Every formation of neutrons, charged particles or even muons during fusion indicates, that we introduced too much of energy into collision of atom nuclei. The energy required into their acceleration and subsequent braking gets essentially wasted in similar way, like the traveling with single car across hill, which represents the activation energy barrier for fusion reaction.
The cold fusion evades this problem by sending whole train of atom nuclei across hill: while one part of train is still climbing, the second one drags the train down already and it helps the rest in climbing. It's mechanism similar to principle, in which Cooper pairs overcome potential barriers and resistance within superconductors - just many of them get involved at the same moment. Not surprisingly cold fusion and superconductivity effects often come together.
mackita

Therefore the cold fusion never collides an isolated atoms, but whole lines of atom nuclei at the same moment, usually utilizing the highly ordered geometry of crystal lattice for it. The formation of chaotic plasma is strictly prohibited during it, as it wastes the input energy in random collisions. The long trains of atom nuclei have relatively low speed, but high inertia so that they serve like anvils or pistons for squashing and fusing individual protons between them. Their inertia also dissolves the resulting energy and momentum of collisions, so that it gets thermalized without release of radiation of X-ray or gamma. And even if some neutrons get occasionally released, they're always ejected along axis of collisions, so that they're effectively reabsorbed back with dense chains of colliding atom nuclei. In this way the cold fusion reaction remains "clean" and "nonpolluting ": i.e. recoilless and neutronless all the time.

From these scientist procedures, it is evident that they did not yet understand the causes of fusion. Natural fusion comes from hydrogen atoms that unite and form their isotopes (deuterium and tritium). This means that hydrogen atoms should be forced to approach each other and that neutrons are formed by certain processes.
The fundamental cause of the release of energy from matter is the formation of gluon. When he understands it, he should ask, what to do with these gluons, and where to send them to get energy. There is a much simpler way to gain energy, using magnetism, but science has not yet figured out who provokes the appearance of magnetism.

Heh, fusion in ten years again.

I don't see why someone doesn't go throw a couple billion dollars each at the cold fusion guys, the Bussard polywell guys, the Lawrenceville Dense Plasma Focus guys, and about ten billion at the stellarator guys, and stand back and see whose works. The only people who seem to get the money are the petawatt laser guys and the tokamak guys-- the two most expensive ways to do it.

If you want my guess, the polywell seems to be doing the best, but I'm willing to argue it. The stellarator seems to have good theoretical chops, but doesn't have the track record of the polywell.

If none of them works, oh well, we wasted a hundredth of the money being spent on ITER. This is duh.

If it is known that something is done, then it is easy to separate it with reverse interactions. Likewise, the same thing should be done with every attempt to get something from the chain of the formation process of anything. But the problem is that science does not know how matter forms and from which it forms, and in particular is ignorance of the origin of magnetism and gravity, which are the basic factors of all phenomena and matter of various forms and energies.

Mills is actually as unreliable as Rossi - recently he just switched his research paradigm once again: from Suncell reactor to exploding wires, where whole the cold fusion research actually started before one hundred of years. Once you already have complex and expensive reactor, which is supposedly able to work in continuous regime - why to waste time and research capacity for some exploding wires? If I would be investor of BLP, I'd demand an explanation to say at least. With compare to Quark-X reactor of Andrea Rossi we can at least see an advance in level of control of nuclear reaction by electricity and introduction of plasma discharge approach of Lipinski fusion, which is mentioned above. BTW Rossi has WON the IH lawsuit and IH wasn't his supporter, once he tried to cheat him and not to pay for licence. Your debtors are only rarely your supporters, you know..

The problem with cold fusion is actually somewhere else: with compare to hot fusion research, where the investments into research facility don't go bellow one billion of dollars, the cold fusion research is one thousand-times cheaper and yet it's still ignored despite thousands of confirmations and practical results.

One must therefore put the question, who is responsible for it? Why the cold fusion must be driven only by enthusiastic and unreliable private researchers, once we are already forced to pay billions for equally uncertain hot fusion research?

Exploding wires?? Mills had understandable problems with obtaining high temp pv components. That configuration has taken a back seat to heat capture for the moment, but it would be the best ultimate setup as his purported hydrino reaction gives off most of its energy as light. Hence 'brilliant light power'.

These things necessarily take time. You don't like it just because it doesn't fit into your dense aether fantasies.

I'm confident that if it does pan out, your theory will miraculously be able to explain it. And further you will claim that 'you knew it before some time already since'.

Ha no, all you see is some mysterious operation taking place inside a box with rossi fiddling with it during the demo.

He did not explain what he was doing at the time, nor did he show the observers what was inside that box.

The easiest explanation after all this time is that something inside the box was heating the reactor, and that he turned it off when someone went to take a measurement that would have revealed it.

Let's stick with the real cold fusion guys, shall we? Mills and Rossi are the comedy fraudster corps. And this is the big problem with cold fusion; it's ripe for fraud because of the lack of scrutiny. From a technical standpoint, the big problem is lack of reproducible results. Unless or until someone gets reproducible results it will continue to languish. And nobody appears to know how to do that.

Like I said, the exploding wires experiments have long history. Also the detonation experiments with underwater blasts routinely exhibited overunity. LeClaire even got so much of neutrons during it, he was forced to interrupt these experiments from safety reasons. All brute force impulse techniques are rough and primitive, not worth of utilization in industrial or even domestic scale. So that once Mills claimed to have SunCell reactor working in stable continuous regime, such a sudden regression is a bit suspicious. His spectrum based "calorimetry" is also suspicious. The fudge factor can get very high there, because it depends on emissivity.

Nobody would buy the table-top technology, which doesn't generate energy with respect to naive water calorimetry, which is very easy to check. The cheating is literally impossible there. On the contrary, you can get lotta money by promising results in neverending hot fusion research, which consumes thousand-times more money without any warranty of success in near decades. This is the right place for frauds at large scale - not cold fusion.

ITER could cost as much as 50 billion dollars - an it will never lead to commercial viability. It drains not only resources for cold fusion - but also for alternative hot fusion research.

I already provided the data - the proton-boron fusion is one of most difficult to run. It requires at least one-hundred times higher temperatures and plasma density than the deuterium-tritium fusion, which has been tested ten years with NIF laser facility for ten billions dollars - without any success. So that once someone comes and says, he needs another ten billion dollars for new laser which would handle the both, then I feel somewhat insecure with cash.

The point is, the cold fusion can run from minimal scale. Why the laser fusion would need so high investments from its very beginning? Why not to demonstrate it first with some table-top laser and microscope? LeClair generated neutrons with common pulsed laser and bit of water. Why not to replicate his results first? I see, it looks like not so good business - what if it would work at the end? It could ruin whole the future hot fusion business.

The contemporary occupation driven attitude, which is willing to release billions dollars blindly instead of replication for one thousand dollars is fascinating bizarre sociologic phenomenon for me. It's based on the fear, that the success of cheap experiment would ruin the opportunity/evasion for much higher volume spending. The perspective of huge spending simply prohibits the responsible people in checking the cheaper option first: why they should ask for thousands of dollars, if they could get one billion at once? Who would resist such an incentive, once the money are already at the table?

The yield of production of microprocessors at their beginning was often lower than 20% and they were still produced and utilized in minimal scale. Russians manufactured their microprocessors with 5% yield only - and it worked! And many arrangements of cold fusion are already highly reproducible (Lipinski, LeClaire). Last year Japan physicists replicated cold fusion on palladium with 100% reproducibility. The reproducibility therefore isn't already problem for cold fusion - the scope of research and replications are.

What exploding wires and LeClaire experiments have in common? The formation of jets. I already explained the main trick of cold fusion above: the shaking of sands inside closed vessel doesn't generate sparks even at high velocities, but the shaking of pebbles can. So that the collisions of large chunks of atoms instead of single protons can work. But the atoms are very sparse objects, their nuclei cannot collide with high density or they find a way how to avoid each other. The only option is to collide long stacks of atom nuclei moving along single line. We can utilize crystal lattice, linear laser beams or various plasma and condensed phase jets or their combinations. The problems with jets is, they're transient short-living phenomena, the products of fusion have no time to thermalize, which manifest itself with high production of neutrons and low production of equilibrial 2He2 and waste of input energy. Therefore the explosions are neither good neither efficient way for cold fusion.

All of the prolonged delays in experiments to form a cold fusion, or any other, is evidence that science is still unaware of how energy gets from matter, but naturally. The energy state of the matter is free of gluon, found in a 3kg (3 quark and 3 gluon binder) particles. When matter is formed from Aether substance, 3kg of particles and especially free gluons are formed. When the gluon enters the 3kg particle, a neutron forms.
If thermodynamic conditions change, the gluon in the neutron disintegrates and emits an electron, and a neutron forms a proton. Now, the electron, for the sake of energy balance, begins to circulate around the protons and this is a hydrogen atom.
Call out the Tokamak experts and get this done. They will understand that in their way they do not lend themselves the possibility of obtaining free energy.

@Otto, the guys down at SPAWAR were doing fairly serious research, but were never able to get consistent results. And they published, though not very much. The results look more like LENR than what one would call "cold fusion." Since no one knows how it really works, it's kinda hard to figure out how to make an energy source out of it, but it's clear that there are cold neutron reactions taking place, at this point.

I don't think we're going to figure this out very quickly. It's obvious there's something going on here we don't understand well enough to get a handle on it.

As usually, Einstein was who invented it first.. But he was already ignored by mainstream physics as senile schizophreniac, who looks for orgone in his times.

This mechanism of cold fusion has interesting way how to demonstrate it. The Rossi experiments are just based on fact, that protons shotten into molten lithium induce cold fusion just at low energy (above 200 Volts or so). But this effect persists only tightly (some twenty fifty degrees) above melting temperature of lithium. Which is fascinating effect by itself: megawatt scale nuclear reaction modulated by so minute changes of temperature! My explanation is, the surface of molten lithium remains in oriented semicrystalline state at these temperatures.

On similar mechanism the fourth phase of water formation near its surfaces of dr. Pollack is based, BTW. For cold fusion with lithium you must have lithium surface molten, so that it doesn't gets clogged by hydride and the protons can be easily shotted into it. But it also must be arranged and crystalline, or the Astroblaster/Mossbauer lattice mechanism of momentum amplification cannot apply - it requires collinear atoms. The working temperature scope can be expanded if you leave lithium soaked at the surface of inert porous material in thin layer, which elevates the melting temperature of lithium and it increases the physical surface area of it - this is essentially the route of Andrea Rossi and his Quark-X reactor.

Your conversation is distracting, as you have absolutely no clue about subject. You're like an Aboriginean who is trying to discuss microprocessor architecture - sorry.

He does low voltage/high current arc between molten silver electrodes inside the graphite sphere, which is the basis of his advanced (and expensive) SunCell reactor. If he molted tungsten (actually molybdenum) electrodes, then just by short accident. But recently Mills switched into a trivial exploding silver wire, which everyone of you can replicate.

Note the formation of long smokey trails after explosions. They're probably formed by particles of silver but Mills is claiming, the dense Rydberg form of hydrogen, so called hydrino is responsible for it. Recently another researcher Leif Holmlid reported the formation of similar dense Rydberg form of hydrogen filaments consisting of H7 clusters. The fudge factor is rather high for both researchers, but someone could look at these filaments, as they're easy to prepare.
In dense aether model the entanglement of particles should get greatly enhanced in their collinear orientation - the more, the more dense and compact these particles are (it's sorta Cassimir force on steroids). We already have another indicia of these effects (dark matter filaments between collinear galaxies, Allais effect during eclipse or recently so-called Hungarian boson). After all, the cold fusion itself could be enhanced by similar effects between collinear atom nuclei.

BTW Quite recently physicists confirmed the existence of stable tetraquarks. This tetraquark is actually agglomerate of two mesons, which are formed by quark pairs revolving itself at distance, so that they're also linear of sort. In recent past the indicia of many anomalies were observed at LHC. But because the physicists were not aware of their common nature, they averaged them with another collisions in an effort to improve the statistical significance of these results. And because most of particles don't form dimers, these results were consequently dismissed as they didn't pass the five-sigma criterion of significance of physical results.
These examples just illustrate the need of cautiousness in judging of anomalies. Until we don't know, which effect may be responsible for it, we shouldn't average them with another results and to throw out them prematurely like statistical fluke.

At any case, the overunity at graphite, cold fusion and many other physical anomalies attributed to dark matter effect could be manifestation of extradimensions and time reversed scalar physics. It's not accidental, that the key to HIGH dimensional "New Physics" are just LOW-dimensional compact artifacts: layers, stripes and chains of particles in alignment: they're manifestation of shielding nature of gravity (LeSage model) at various distance scales. Until we're doing physics with easy statistically most probable arrangements (spheres, random plasma collisions etc.), we may not be able to spot these anomalies at all.

@mackita,
Why do you and science so complicate the attempt to find out the truth in any phenomenon that we want to explain. You are in love with the "scientific results" that you believe that you have discovered some new particles, and so from the natural quark you make a fake quartz and other particles. Science now argues that everything is derived from nothing, and they always get some new "products" in particle collisions. How do these "fruits" form and how? Clear out this enigma and you will all return to the path of understanding the true causes of the phenomenon. The basic natural law formed Aether from matter, and in various forms it has a "family relationship" with Aether in the form of two basic phenomena, which are gravity and magnetism. If the process of creating magnetism is unknown, science will never come to the truth in any process. Fusion can not be accomplished using lasers, because light occurs after the breakdown of quark gluon plasma (magnetists and more ...).

Researchers from Nissan Motors Co., Kyushu , Tohoku , Nagoya and Kobe university in Japan have published a paper in which they report excess heat in reactions between hydrogen and various metals. With 120g samples, they sustained 10-24W excess for a month at 300C. Results were confirmed at two different labs. At 200 W/Kg, a 100 Kg pack (replacing a battery) would deliver up to 20 KW, which is about the power needed to drive a Tesla on flat ground at 65 MPH.
The system studied could find its usage as a replacement of expensive and toxic plutonium for satellites. But it also demonstrates the blindness of mainstream nuclear physics, which ignores the cold fusion for so long time. And it would inhibit the huge public spending into research of hot fusion - which is the reason, why these results will be probably ignored anyway by mainstream physics.
