The 21st International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science ICCF-21 was held June 3-8, 2018 at the Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, US. The conference hosted two presentations by Edmund Storms as well as a Poster by Thomas Grimshaw presenting a documentation project of Storms’ early work in cmns.
The Materials session began Wednesday morning June 6 with Chair Jirota Kasagi of the Research Center for Electron-Photon Science at Tohoku University introducing Edmund Storms’ The enthalpy of formation of PdH as a function of H/Pd atom ratio and treatment (from originally scheduled Loading and De-loading Behavior of Palladium Hydride).
Also, in the Poster session, Thomas Grimshaw of the Energy Institute at University of Texas Austin presented Documentation of Dr. Edmund Storms’ 29 Years of CF Research: Lessons Learned for Long-Term LENR Researchers [.pdf] by Thomas Grimshaw University of Texas at Austin and Edmund Storms Kiva Labs.
This is a project that catalogs and compiles valuable LENR research, including early data sets, for future review. See the poster and the article 29 Years of Cold Fusion Research.
The Journal of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science JCMNS Vol. 20 [.pdf] has published Anomalous Energy Produced by PdD and How Basic Behavior Can Guide A Search for an Explanation both by Edmund Storms, LENERGY, LLC.
Anomalous Energy Produced by PdD on pages 81-99 reports on the “production of anomalous energy using two different samples and the behavior of this energy when temperature, deuterium content of the material, and applied current are changed.
“The observed response gives additional insight into the possible mechanism and corrects some previously incorrect conclusions about this behavior.”
Storms has determined that high-loading is not a necessary condition to initiate the reaction, and that the single greatest factor is temperature.
The second paper How Basic Behavior Can Guide A Search for an Explanation pages 100-138 is a systematic narrowing of LENR models as examined by their assumptions and logical consequences. Jettisoning all ideas that rely on imagined events, the theoretical field is pared down with only the most robust theoretical elements surviving.
An attempt to provide a reasoned approach to an explanation continues the further evolution of Nanocrack Theory, where experimental evidence is supreme.
