Composition measurements and imagery of nanoparticle gas loading experiments as an investigation of LENR reactions
Metadata[+] Show full item record
A key issue for the development of a LENR power unit concerns the changes in nanoparticles during runs. LENUCO LLC is working on such power units and this work on nanoparticle changes is being done in support of that effort. Our experiments have used pressurization of various different nanoparticle alloys with either deuterium or hydrogen. The principal elements in the nanoparticle alloys are Nickel, Palladium and Zirconium with different percentage compositions. We will present the results obtained from study of surface aspects and composition changes in the nanoparticles following runs by two techniques, SEM and SIMS, respectively. The results reported here are from various run times including an extended run that accumulated 40 hours run time.
