Specific experimental operation of the device Nichenergy:

  • Ignition of the process and activation of energy production
  • Isolation of the device from any source of internal H (storage systems) or external (H bottle)
  • The H internal working pressure is always below the atmospheric pressure
  • The method of multi sequential triggering allows the total removal of input power
  • Once the stationary condition of dynamic equilibrium is reached, the process continues in energy production for months and years without adding in any way H
  • A slow decrease of the internal pressure of H is measured.

Major achievements in over a hundred experiments

  1. Anomalous excess of temperature and power input vs time (two reactors are currently in operation; the one shown in the figure is operational from 2 years and 4 months)
  2. Fig. A shows the calibration curves (Temperature vs. Power input) and displays subsequent activations
    Fig. B shows the step-by-step reduction of the input power following a series of activations until the total elimination of power. The reactor (sealed) has been remaining at a T above 280°C for over 6 months without adding H2 and without interior H accumulations. Finally it was deliberately turned off.
  3. Fig. A shows the curve of calibration with external and internal controls
    Fig. B shows the temperatures measured on the outer surface and those detected by the internal sensor (Pt100) after activation. You can see a greater increase on the T2 denoting greater activation in area 2 to about 9 cm from zone 1 where the internal sensor is located
  4. Ignition graphs: Temperature, Power input vs. time
  5. Photo in Wilson chamber: tracks of charged particles (protons and alpha) emitted from a bar of 10 cm removed after shutdown. The number of emitted particles went pretty quickly diminishing
  6. Photo (done by Sem Edax) of a sample extracted from the cell after shutdown and left about 6 months in operation, with diagrams showing the non-uniform distribution of Zn and Cu (within the 1mm resolution). A control after a fortnight showed strong reduction of Cu. Zn is practically almost disappeared after about two months from the extraction
  7. Photos of various spectra (done by Sem Edax) of samples including many other transmutations, probably due to secondary reactions caused by p and alpha emitted with energies above the 3 MeV and therefore depending on the materials present inside the reactor
  8. The reported peak of 411 keV shows the transmutation of Au in Hg
    Fig. A shows the neutrons burst (spike) detected by 3He sensor occurred in a particular state of the particular experiment
    Fig. B shows the Au foil activation spectra (after exposure of 12 days following the registration of the spikes with 3He) demonstrating a certain emission of neutrons (which took place only in a certain reactor)
  9. Spectra A & B show the gamma annihilation peak of beta+ decays (detected 40 cm far from one reactor with Ge). The peak of 511 keV is clearly above the background. This rise in counts compared to the background spectrum takes place in the whole energy range, with a greater increase in the lower energy region. In the experiments the total sum of the counts ( 40KeV- 3MeV ) showed a value up to 4 times the background. The spectra do not show significant peaks (only sporadically) probably for the complexity of the phenomena occurring within the reactor with many possible overlapping reactions; due to this overlapping, sometimes you can see some peaks, sometimes you can see only a global increasing of the experimental counts. This fact suggests that it is really complicated to understand what happens within a reactor with a simple calorimetry due to the characteristic of integrability of the thermal energy. As a consequence it is not possible to discriminate the many phenomena inside a reactor by means of the calorimetry
