In 1961 newly appointed physicist Otto Reifenschweiller infused 15 nanometer titanium particles with tritium and found a 40% reduction in radioactivity by cycling the material above 140oC(1). His mentor advised him that this result was heretical and advised burying the result in order to have a viable career. Indeed, he buried the result until after his retirement in 1998 as Director of the Laboratory at Philips Eindhoven ND, perhaps the premiere research laboratory in Europe. In 1995 VETC personnel identified a new class of vibrational properties in a narrow size regime between 3 - 15 nanometers(2). All materials processed in this very narrow size regime have unusually large vibrational modes. The modes are so unusual that they catalyze a wide range of new energy pathways. In 2008 Yashiaki Arata, Japan's most decorated scientist, made a major announcement about energy release from nanopowders infused with hydrogen(3). Arata and Reifenschweiller both used metal nanopowders below 15 nanometers and both observed a surprise in output. Reifenschweiler saw a reduction in radiative output. Arata saw energy output without any of the anticipated radiation. Clearly the chaotic movement of the dissolved hydrogen isotopes was profoundly affected. The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)(4) agreed to a replication effort of the Arata experiment that began in July 2009. The Arata reports of continuous thermal energy output with no electrical energy input were achieved with full reproducibility. Arata used nanoscale nickelpalladium islands encased in a matrix of zirconium oxide and infused with hydrogen gas. On January 15, 2011 Sergio Focardi and Andreas Rossi(5) demonstrated commercial scale, 12 kilowatt power output from nanomaterials in fused with hydrogen similar to the EPRI study. They used nickel nanopowders with an undisclosed promoter element to enhance the loading of hydrogen to ever higher concentrations. Romanowski(6) has suggested that copper is the promoter element best suited for dense hydrogen loading. These high loading conditions are believed to favor a new form of hyper-dense hydrogen at the interface between the metal islands and the dielectric ZrO2 matrix(7). The hydrogen atoms undergoing energy localized vibrations can interact with the host nickel lattice nuclei. This is the most direct physical process for chemical conditions to impact nuclear reaction rates. References 1. O.
