Reviews of Past Colloquia
August 2007 Colloquium on Lattice-Assisted Nuclear Reactions in Deuterated Metals

Scott Chubb and Christy Frazier

Excerpts from Issue 75; Sept/Oct 2007; Infinite Energy Magazine - More in that issue 

The 2007 Colloquium on Lattice-Assisted Nuclear Reactions in Deuterated Metals was held on August 18, 2007 in Room 34-101 at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The event was organized by MIT Prof. Peter Hagelstein, Dr. Mitchell Swartz, Gayle Verner, and others from JET Energy Advanced Systems and Concepts, and conducted with the MIT Electrical Engineering Energy Production and Conversion Group, and jointly sponsored by JET, Cold Fusion Times, and the New Energy Foundation. Helping throughout the day were Jeff Driscoll and representatives from aljan Multimedia (Alan Weinberg, Al Signore, Sarah Lavallee, and Joe Lavallee). The jam-packed day began with an hour-long meet and greet coffee and continental breakfast session at 8:00 a.m., giving attendees a great chance to catch up with old friends, researchers, and presenters before the intensive program began.  .... Dr. Scott Chubb gave a brief overview of the events at the recent (June 2007) ICCF13 conference, held in Russia. ... Prof. Peter Hagelstein presented a “Review of Experimental Findings Involving Deuterated Metals.” Dr. Mitchell Swartz discussed “Excess Heat Measurements in Deuterated Palladium,” specifically related to his own work in cold fusion going back to 1989, and involving several types of materials, configurations, and developments leading up to the Phusor devices. ... 
After the lunch break, Dr. Peter Graneau spoke on “Hydrogen Binding Energies and Their Role in Hurricanes.” ... Dr. Michael Melich discussed “Some Thoughts on the Creation of Useful Models of CMNS Systems,” including experiences he has had associated with convincing other people that something “real” is involved in cold fusion. "

"Dr. Larry Forsley presented on “Gamma Emissions from CR39 Films Near Codeposited Deuterated Palladium.” Dr. Ludwik Kowalski and Rick Cantwell also presented on the topic. Dr. Forsley’s and Dr. Kowalski’s presentations related to work they presented during the March 2007 meeting of the American Physical Society—replicating effects that have been observed by Stan Szpak, Pamela Mosier-Boss, and Frank Gordon. ... Dr. Mitchell Swartz then spoke on “Optimal Operating Point Operation and Tardive Thermal Power in Deuterated Palladium” and taught some of his methods of improved calibration, including how dual-ohmic control (DOC) systems [which he first introduced at ICCF10 in the open demonstration] can identify excess energy given off after driving electrical input power is shut off, but calibrating for the calorimeter, too. ... 
Dr. Brian Ahern presented his ball lightning-related work with Jeff Driscoll, “Search for Magnetic Monopoles by High Energy Arc Explosion in Liquid Water.” Ahern described a number of experiments that he performed involving extraordinary effects that were related to experiments with highly non-linear forms of electromagnetic interaction. .... Prof. Peter Hagelstein’s second presentation was deeper theory, on “Phonon Theory Involving Deuterated Metals.” He gave an overview of his idea that because of potential coherent forms of coupling, involving vibrations (phonons) in an approximately ordered lattice locally at a particular lattice site, deuterons can potentially collide. ... Dr. Scott Chubb ended the session in the early evening with his presentation, “Symmetry and Finite Size in the Quantum Electrodynamics of Lattice-Assisted (d)-d Fusion.”

2007 Colloquium on Lattice-Assisted Nuclear Reactions (LANR, Cold fusion) at MIT

Wired Coverage of the MIT "Cold Fusion" Conference

"I've been attending conferences on Cold Fusion (also called Low Energy Nuclear Reactions and Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reactions) since the 10th International Conference (ICCF10) held in Cambridge, MA in 2003. 
From last weekend's presentations and conversations with several participants, I believe that the LANR community has now identified the principal conditions and operating parameters under which cold fusion reactions take place. These conditions were either largely unknown to Pons and Fleischman or they failed to communicate sufficient details in 1989 to enable easier replication by others. LANR has been replicated now in many labs in many countries. 
If harnessed, Cold Fusion can be productized in any number of directions. Product ideas include home water heaters, electric power generation, desalinization, and transportation. The work done to date has largely been on the basic underlying science. What's needed next are concerted efforts to do the practical engineering work that leads to products. Such a multidisciplinary effort would include engineers with backgrounds in solid state physics, metallurgy, calorimetry and instrumentation, fabrication and manufacturing, failure analysis, and quality control, among other disciplines."
