Hi Bob, Axil, Nick etc
Over on ECW Me356 made a very interesting reply to me that I think you might
I was asking about the materials in first pictures he sent but his reply gives
some interesting details:
Interestingly he says that brighter components are from heavier atoms and even
more interestingly that heavier are at the end of those tracks and lighter
atoms at the beginning.
I also had some thoughts about what might cause this, I'm quite curious what
Just some thoughts going through my mind right now:
I wonder if those tracks compositions are arranged like that due to some kind
of sorting of elrements in an electric or magnetic field or if they are due to
some kind of transmutation.
If it is sorting it is strange they form tracks and that the light elements are
at the beginning and heavier elements are at the end of the tracks I would
expect the heavier ones to be deposited first. Although I suppose the degree of
ionization would also play some role. On the other hand the tracks seem aligned
to some degree which might imply some kind of field I suppose.
If it's transmutations that's really amazing but I suppose it could be found if
unusual elements or isotopes are present.
I wonder if there is some kind of transmuting agent along The lines Axil
suggests or Bobs charge clusters or Some kind of dense Hydrogen if it is
initially traveling at speed then slowing down if it would have stronger
transmutation affects locally at slower speeds hence leading to heavier atoms
towards the end of the tracks.
One strange thing I noticed is that it seems that the apparent branching in
those patterned tracks are very often at close to 90 degrees even the smaller
patterns seem to show this effect. It almost seems to me they need to be
orthogonal. Could this tell us about something about the physical process... is
it implying spinning particles or something that need to be orthogonal to not
interfere with each other or some other vector property that has to be
orthogonal ? Or could it be an artifact of stresses in the carbon tape.
I wonder if he was also able to look at the composition of the spikes in the
later picture. Its interesting he attached them in reply to Axil after Axil was
talking about UDH but would such material show up in these images. On the other
hand can Nickel crystals form sharp spikes like this? very curious.i would live
to see their composition. At least if conductive I wonder if the affect the EM
environment strongly especially in a glow discharge.
Nick's images of marks on wood look intriguing to me too it's a good approach I
think to look for analogues.

The photos of ME356's fuel are fascinating. I don't know what to make of the
fractal growth on the carbon sticky tape. I would love to see an EDS of the
fractal growth. Ni crystals do tend to grow when there is sufficient heat and
in the absence of oxygen, but the Ni crystals are normally spiky spears (as is
seen in some of the photos). I can't believe that the fractal growth is
metallic hydrogen - just too far fetched Axil.
I can speculate about what ME356 does to prepare his fuel. Here are a few
* The fuel is Ni or Ni alloy wire wound into a coil shape that will fit
into a reactor tube.
* From what we have seen, it doesn't seem like ME356's reactor runs a
current through this coil - it is possible, but it is risks short term burnout
limiting the life of the reactor. My guess is that it is just a coiled up wire
fuel inside of a fused silica or ceramic tube that contains the fuel coil and
* ME356 talks of pre-treating his fuel. He says that the longer he
pre-treats the fuel the more active it is in producing LENR. I think the
pre-treatment consists of putting the Ni coil inside a vacuum chamber, that has
been evacuated to less than 1 micron. The wire is heated and cooled until it
stops outgassing. Then the chamber is filled with about 10 torr of H2, the
wire is heated, and the wire or an adjacent Ni electrode is driven with RF at
one of the ISM band frequencies. This will provide some sputter-like
activation of the surface.
* After the hot sputter processing, take the coil out and put it into the
reactor tube and heat in H2 for LENR.
