Darden Upbeat On Other LENR Avenues

Tom Darden, founder and CEO of Raleigh’s Cherokee Investment Partners, an investor in Industrial Heat LLC, has stated he has “moved on” from Andrea Rossi and his E-Cat technology, despite ongoing litigation with Rossi and his partners.

Darden says he’s moved on to other possibilities when it comes to LENR technologies. Rossi’s research was just one of a dozen avenues Industrial Heat was exploring. Of those 12, Industrial Heat has halted or slowed funding on about half, he says, adding that the management team feels “increasingly good” about the remaining avenues. “Our triaging process is working pretty well to figure out which ones we want to continue to support and which ones we don’t.”

Abstract
A method is presented for the continuous production of heavy electrons with extra mass values such that they can be captured by hydrogen ions and give rise to the generation of a neutron flux which optionally can be used to trigger and sustain a low energy nuclear reaction.
This method is based on the physical phenomenon of Localized Plasmon Resonance (Local Surface Plasmon Resonance – LSPR).
Description
The present invention relates to a method for producing heavy electrons and the relative utilization of said production of heavy electrons in order to trigger and sustain a low energy nuclear reaction.

Making Metallic Hydrogen at Harvard

Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating metallic hydrogen. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamental questions about the nature of matter, the material is theorized to have a wide range of applications, ranging from room-temperature superconductors to powerful rocket propellant.
Breakthroughs such as this may be a sign of things to come regarding research into condensed matter and nuclear reactions with hydrogen at the atomic level; including LENR and other metallic lattice assisted nuclear reactions (LANR).
