Higgins—Regarding your comments:

The spectrometer Rossi  is said to have  used, if connected via fiber optics, 
would be limited in its effective range of wavelength monitoring from 200 nm to 
about 2200 nm.  The peak of black body radiation
at 2300 C is in this range,  However, the peak as a function of radiance is 
fairly flat in this range.  The peak wavelengths that Rossi’s demo displayed 
were not associated with the black body radiation  temperature of

I would guess that Rossi does not want spectrum data publicized, since it would 
tell too much about the mechanisms at work.

The conducting medium within the plasma may be made up of Li ions, microscopic 
Li droplets, microscopic Al droplets and Al ions.  The H is either absorbed by 
the Ni or remains as a H2 molecule.  This assumption of the composition of gas 
is what I have called a “dusty” plasma expecting that the material is not  
strictly an ionic substance.  I have never heard of neutral plasmas,  which 
neutrality Rossi has indicated is characteristic of his QX reactor.

If the LENR produces alphas and results from a magnetic field with its 
directionality, the alpha emission may
also display a related directionality.

Finally the signal driving the reactor may be a quadrupole magnetic field to 
produce nuclear spin states that resonate with lattice electron  spin states. 
Such a driver may require significant energy to achieve the proper resonances 
with enough energy to change the nuclear energy states and allow nuclear 
transmutation.  To be useful as a heat source the change of potential energy 
and increase of the lattice energy or kinetic energy of emitted alphas would  
have to be substantially greater than the energy needed to create the signal 
driving the reactor.

As I understand it, Rossi is said to have recorded the spectrum using something 
like an Ocean Optics fiber spectrometer 
(https://oceanoptics.com/product/ocean-fx/).  A typical gas discharge spectrum 
will be a mix of blackbody for the plasma and lines from the key atomic and 
ionic species.  This spectrometer is capable of recording the full spectrum as 
a function of time so as to show the different stages of plasma formation, 
discharge, and turn-OFF.  It is highly likely that the spectrum will change 
significantly in each of these phases.  The stronger the lines are, the more 
likely that the gas is low pressure.  Stronger blackbody plasma discharge is 
characteristic of higher gas pressure.  The plasma will shut off quickly when 
electrical discharge is stopped.  There can be fluorescence during the 
discharge and afterglow (phosphorescence) in the system after discharge, 
depending upon the impurities in the glass tube (which could be implanted 
during discharge).  Afterglow does not per se indicate any LENR reaction.

Since alphas would have been emitted omnidirectionally, it would not produce a 
DC current through the tube of any significance.  The axial geometry of such a 
tube would mean that the side walls would get most of any alphas that might be 

There is no evidence that this is a dusty plasma reactor.  Whenever the tube 
cools off, the Li vapor would condense on the side walls taking any "dust" with 
it.  In a dusty plasma reactor it takes a great deal of effort to keep the dust 
in the plasma.  Suhas used ultrasound.  Egely uses an acoustically resonant 
reactor body.  In the descriptions I have heard, I see no evidence that Rossi's 
QX is based on dusty plasma technology.  Instead, it appears to be only a Li + 
H2 plasma.  It is possible that some Ni could be evaporated from the 
electrodes, but I believe it would condense quickly on the side walls of the 
tube near the electrodes - I don't believe it would stay in plasma.  These 
areas of condensed Ni on the side walls could be LENR active though.

Mats Lewan is said to have seen the QX produce deep blue color when running at 
100%. Even at 30%, the QX produces light at between 400 to 500 nm that I saw 
recorded with my own eyes recorded on the spectrograph as seen in the video. I 
don't beleive the info on light production that is coming from Rossi. That info 
might be self serving. Rossi might be  seeing what he wants to see. Rossi says 
that the light produced was measured at 1100nm. This is infrared light and is 
not even visible. How can Rossi get a valid blackbody heat reading when the QX 
is running at 30% power level? Those people at the Demo should have reacted to 
this discontinuity in logic during the demo in real time.

I agree with your comment about a high voltage (short) at the beginning of the 
reaction in the QX reactor.  It is consistent with the flash of light which can 
be seen at the end of the reactor upon the initial power application.

Your assessment does not address the source of energy during the off phases of 
the control circuit.  I would argue that the reaction producing heat is 
occurring in the Ni electrode with the Li acting as a good convective heat 
transfer agent from the electrode to the outer circumference  of the reactor 
where the water cooling occurs.

The electric current is generated by the net positive charge  that results from 
the reaction that produces energetic alphas that cross the annular space where 
the dusty plasma exists and charge the outer surface of the reactor.

I disagree with Axil that the suncell hydrino reaction is like the QX reaction. 
 The spectra of the two reactions are not reported to be alike.

The QX is a downsized version of the SunCell with the plasma ball reduced to 
the size of a speck of dust. You can understand what is happening inside the QX 
by looking at what is happening inside the SunCell. The metal used in the QX is 
aluminum whereas the metal used to support the plasma inside the SunCell is 
silver.Lithium is not a reactant and remains in the vapor form. The hydrogen 
pressure is very high because the amount of solid fuel that is placed inside 
the QX must be substantial in order for the fuel loading to be manageable. 
Rossi cannot work with(load) nanograms of fuel

In the experiments I am aware of, waveforms were only tried as applied to the 
heater coils (or in my case to a magnetic field coil).  There was no evidence 
of enhanced XH.  This could be because the waveform was not well "coupled" to 
the active medium.  These were heat driven Parkhomov-like experiments.  In the 
case of others that have seen benefit from such waves, the stimulus was applied 
more directly to the reaction medium - electrolysis or to the hydrogenated 
wires.   I believe there could be benefit in such stimuli, but it would have to 
be appropriately coupled to the reaction.

In a conversation I was having with MFMP folks, I had this to say about what I 
thought was described for the QX reactor and power supply:

Since it has been suggested/said that Li is present inside the QX, during a 
discharge it will be in gas phase; and when it is turned OFF, it will condense 
on the inside of the tube and conduct across the electrodes.  Then, upon 
re-start, the tube will be shorted with this condensed Li metal path and a high 
current will be needed to heat the Li to boiling.  Once the Li path evaporates, 
the tube will have to be run in gas discharge mode.  So initially the tube is a 
short and needs a high current, low voltage to begin, and then it has to switch 
into gas discharge mode which is low current high voltage.  Also, in the gas 
discharge mode, the supply will have to be ballasted as a current source.  This 
is why the supply is complex, the waveform is complex, and why it is also 
difficult to characterize what energy has been supplied over time to the tube.  
There is the claim that there is balanced electron/ion flow.  That would be the 
H+ & Li+ positive ions and e- negative electrons conducting bodies.

In a plasma tube, the plasma itself can be at 2700K while the glass itself can 
be kept cool with water cooling.  The heat is transferred by the plasma atoms 
striking the glass, and there will be a cooler gas buffer zone around the 
inside of the glass where it is too cool to be in plasma state - insulating the 
core plasma discharge.  The higher the gas pressure, the more power that must 
be added to the plasma to compensate for the cooling of the glass tube on the 
plasma.  This tells me that the gas pressure inside the QX is probably pretty 
low, probably under 50 torr, and maybe more like 10 torr.  The problem you 
would have is keeping the Li from condensing on the glass tube in that cool 
zone and shorting out the plasma discharge.  It may take care of itself - as 
the lithium condenses on the glass, the plasma will go to it instead of the 
electrodes causing the Li to re-boil (sort of like an arc discharging to a 
piece of metal wire brought into the gap between a spark discharge).

Rossi has not demonstrated that his tube produces XE to any of us.  We 
basically have to take the unreliable, untrustworthy word of a technically 
incompetent scoundrel that he is producing any XE - and on a waveform that 
would be very difficult to characterize by someone that is technically sound.

Have you (or MFMP) experimented with any variation of the Dardik superwave?

I think it is more than coincidence that Rossi, Brillouin, Kimmel, Energetics 
etc, etc have employed interfering waveforms as the input power.

Even if Rossi’s recent effort was a null result, it is true that his PS seems 
unusually lossy.

Sadly, that is the most hopeful thing that anyone can honestly say about it….

granted greater access to the data.  You and I should take it as a presumed 
null experiment since there was inadequate data shared to show any XE.
