I have decided to go public with my work and my claims this time. I am doing this for two reasons. (1) I now have a patent on file (filed Oct 19,1997) for the process and (2) The results to date have been less than expected. I could use some feedback.

Background: Cold fusion electrodes are room temperature superconductors. Ref. Physical Review Letters vol 35 # 214 July 1975. Refer to the work of work of Celani in Italy. Refer to U.S.Patent No 4043809 by Ruvalds

The process of cold fusion produces energy due to the vibration of a superconductor. Refer to the work of CETI and the preheater they use to start the process. The thermal energy of the preheater vibrates the beads in the IR spectrum at about 1 x 1013 MHz.

The process requires superconductive structures of a certain size. CETI's beads run in the IR spectrum and the films are about 1,000 angstroms thick. Chubb has just announced that fine grain structure palladium produces energy.

The larger the superconductive structure, the lower the frequency of operation. I have found this relationship. Freq. of oper. MHz = 37/(length of superconductor in inches)

I believe that NASA's Marshall's work on the "Downshifting of the Frequencies Theory" is related to these low frequency vibrational modes.

My patented process involves vibrating a ceramic disk of superconductive material in the radio frequency range. The RF energy is extracted and converted directly into electrical energy. The process absorbs vars and produces watts.

Tests were done with a resonant coil set adjacent to a superconductive disk. This resonant circuit was excited with a spark gap system similar to a spark gap transmitter. The tuneable range of its operation was from 1.5MHz to 50 Mhz. (changing taps and capacitors)

The disk and coil were placed in a Dewar. A circulating current of a few amps was induced in the disk. This circulating current was induced by passing one pole of an electromagnet through a hole in the center of the disk. This was done a number of times. The electromagnet was switched on upon insertion and off during withdrawal. After the circulating current was established in the superconductor, the interaction of the circulating current and the external current in the RF circuit induced mechanical vibrations in the superconductive disk.

The EM field was monitored with in Oscilloscope near the superconductive disk as the RF energy was applied. In two instances an anomaly was observed just above the noise level at 11 Mhz with a 3.5 inch disk. This anomaly showed up as a change ln the decay constant of the ringing RF coil. We cannot now repeat this. The latest tests showed no anomalous energy.

Is anyone else trying this? Anything in print about cold fusion, superconductivity, or vibration? If you run into any material related to these things please forward it to me. Is there any theory or any calculations on the subject. Has anyone else done this? Am I the first to file?
