Heat generation from hydrogen/deuterium pressurization of nanoparticles : composition and temperature effect on heat output
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Research in support of small distributed LENR power units is reported. Findings will be discussed from studies of heat generation resulting from pressurization of various nanoparticles with either hydrogen or deuterium, depending on the composition. The effect of composition was studied using three different particle alloy compositions, composed of various amounts of nickel, palladium and zirconium. After pre-treatment, the particles were pressurized with hydrogen and/or deuterium. Results for the peak power density from these runs are presented. The runs were conducted at room temperature with 2 g of the particles but the results are normalized to a per gram basis. The results are presented for each particle type and are the average of multiple runs for each composition.
