E-cat, Defkalion, Nichenergy, JET Energy and Berkeley company called Brillouin have all claimed real world or approaching real world level cold-fusion technologies. Brillouin is saying it understands the process and can run it smooth with out spikes for long periods, adjust levels and turn it on or off at will.
From this interview: Brillouin: "Understanding How LENR Works Will Enable Us to Be First"
| "We Know How It Works" |
Though they are latecomers in the public eye, they are not newcomers to the science; and they think they have an advantage that will make all the difference to enable them to actually make it to market first in a major way: They understand how it works, thanks to the work and inventive intuition of Robert. And because they understand it, they can optimize the design more rapidly, complete with the ability to turn on/off the reaction, govern it up and down, and run it in steady state -- capabilities that none of the competitors have yet had to the same extent.
For example, when I was watching the data emerge from the Defkalion set-up, when I was in Greece (story), I was expecting to see a steady curve, but instead what I saw were intermittent spikes from the nuclear events. The Brillouin curve would be steady.
Speaking metaphorically of the competitors' technology, Robert said: "They have a carburetor, but we know how the spark plug works (and the glow plug)."
| Independently Validated |
They have had two significant independent validations of their scientific model and claims. One of those was by Los Alamos National Laboratories. The other was by Dr. Michael McKubre of Standford Research International (SRI), who subsequently joined their board of advisors. McKubre was especially impressed by the consistency of the results. This was the first time (in the LENR experimental arena) that he was able to repeat something every time, without exception.
McKubre is best known as the primary professional interviewed in the 60 Minutes piece on cold fusion that aired April 19, 2009 -- exactly three years ago today.
SRI is a highly respected laboratory involved in cutting-edge technology.
