Introduction — June 18, 2018
Suppressed since it was pioneered in the 1980s in the U.S., experiments with cold fusion power have been successfully replicated in India, Japan and now Russia too.
The technology and know-how to produce cold fusion power was buried as it threatened the more traditional means of generating electricity and the corporations that had a lucrative monopoly on it.
However, according to the reports below, experiments with cold fusion power have been successfully conducted in Asia and Russia. Will the Western corporate monopolies manage to bury these discoveries once again? Or will cheap clean power soon be available for all? Ed.
‘Cold fusion’ to power households
Chennai — The Pioneer March 26, 2018
A gadget of the size of a portable generator could fuel the entire energy requirements of an average household at unbelievably low rates soon. Courtesy- cold fusion, which created a sensation the world over in late 1980s. The technology is back with a bang and Japanese researchers have successfully proved that process is here to stay and the world is set to witness a revolution in energy generation.
When two scientists of the University of Utah proposed in March 1989 that it was possible to generate power in room temperature without threats of radiation or pollution, the scientific community guffawed.
Conventional scientists had total scorn towards the claim of the proponents of the cold fusion – Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons, even as hundreds of scientists across the world replicated their experiment. They had told the world that electrolysis of heavy water led to release of excess heat at room temperature. This experiment was replicated with success the same year at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Trombay. The then Director of BARC, P K Iyengar PK Iyengar and Director of the elite Physics Group Mahadevan Srinivasan were successful in generating surplus heat energy at room temperature by the same experiment which was reported by international media.
Since there was opposition from conventional scientists, Iyengar and Srinivasan could not sustain the momentum and Cold fusion was put in the back burner by scientists.
Still, there were some physicists like Srinivasan, who believed that there should be light at the end of the tunnel. The billion dollar question was how the excess heat was generated at room temperature and that too, without the release of radioactive by-products.
“There should be a scientific reason behind the generation of heat energy during such experiments. Let them explain it,” the then chief of Indira Gandhi Atomic Research Centre at Kalpakkam, Late Dr Baldev Raj had told this reporter when asked why the Department of Atomic Energy was not enthusiastic about the cold fusion project which has since been renamed as Low Energy Nuclear Reaction.
After 30 years, Japanese scientists have come out with reports that substantiate observations made during the cold fusion experiments. A research group including scientists of Toyota, Nissan Motor, Universities of Tohoku, Kobe, Kyushu and Nagoya have found that heat energy was released at room temperature. Professor Emeritus Akito Takahashi, who led the teams has an answer for questions raised by scientists like late Dr Raj. “It could be multi-body fusion occurring at an extremely small space,” said he.
Eminent cardiologist Dr B M Hegde has already pointed out that transmutation of potassium to sodium happening in human body is akin to release of heat energy during cold fusion. The research group expects that it was possible to generate 1 kilowatt of heat, which is two orders of magnitude larger than the present reactions, by improving the structure of the sample, increasing the amount reactant, devising changes to the temperature conditions. The attempt to develop a cold fusion reactor has resumed in India thanks to the efforts of Srinivasan. The BARC is in the forefront along with Swamy Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana (S-Vyas) in making this dream machine a reality. “I may not be able to give the exact date on which the cold fusion reactor would materialise. But it is around the corner,” said Dr Srinivasan.
“Scientific Breakthrough: Cold Nuclear Synthesis Became Managed”
Regnum March 26, 2018 — Machine translation from the original Russian
A long-awaited scientific breakthrough has been made in Russian and world nuclear physics. For the first time, a controlled nuclear fusion reaction is realized at room temperature.
In the laboratory, it was possible to start, regulate and stop the nuclear fusion reaction in deuterated polycrystalline titanium. This became possible only after the discovery of a new type of physical wave, the existence of which was predicted by the great Soviet physicist L.D. Landau in the 1930s of the last century and received experimental confirmation of Alla Kornilova a few years ago.
The final scientific publication on the results of the cycle of experiments is presented in the May issue of the journal “Engineering Physics”.

Video interview with Alla Kornilova from 5 June 2018 in Russian:
At the end of the interview, Alla Kornilova says she thinks that we can expect a real commercial result, use of both large and small cold fusion reactors at the latest in 3 years. Because of the vast amount of experience in the field of nuclear energy can be used, all technical problems have already been dealt with.
