Replication ProposalOutline of process to get widespread Celaniexperiment replicationsMartin Fleischman Memorial Projectwww.quantumheat.org
OverviewThe "Celani Cell" seems to be the most understandable and replicable LENRdemonstration to date.Our Goal is to validate the science of LENR and promote widespread,standardized, replications around the world.The steps towards that end are: ● Step 1: Build Apparatus (In Progress) ● Step 2: Initial Calibration (In Progress) ● Step 3: Initial Replication (In Progress in Conjunction with Celani) ● Step 4: Facilitate Widespread Replication Effort ○ Start with key research institutions around the world ○ Then, offer replication kits to the world
IntroGetting this effect validated is extremely timely ● Rossi has raised a lot of interest and hope ● Rossi still has not done anything to conclusively demonstrate he can create the effect, leaving the skeptics strong ● If Rossi, Defkalion are revealed to be scams, then the whole field could be shut down again. ● At this moment there is a lot of interest and a better network to tap into than ever before to help get this started.We need to seize the opportunity to get this effect proven to the world.To help make it irrefutable, the experiment, the procedures and theorganization must all be as transparent and understandable as possible

Step 1: Build ApparatusMust be clearly understandableLike Francesco Celanis original, this apparatus must be easily understood andopen to scrutiny at all levels ● Clear quartz tube for visual inspection ● Easily traced wires and connections ● Openly publish the engineering drawings ● Hunt Utilities Group is even willing to provide power supply, instrumentation package and release the hardware and software to the public domain as an open source projectMust be safe ● Well engineered to handle a rated pressure and temperature ○ Design to achieve 7 Bar, 300°C with appropriate safety factors ● Include a safety shield - 4.75 mm clear polycarbonate ● Pressure and temperature cycle each unit to ensure it meets design spec ● Include Gamma-Scout Geiger-Müller counter connected to a computer to monitor and log alpha, beta and gamma radiations
Design and Prototype -Instrumentation Package• Still a first prototype, improvements are planned• Engineered for maximum clarity on wiring and connections.• Switches for power out to each element wire• Computer controlled power option• Will ship with a laptop pre-configured for data collection and uploading to global data site
Step 2: Initial CalibrationMake 2 copies of initial apparatus ● Send one to team members in Europe - Nicolas and Mathieu ● Keep one at Hunt Utilities Group - Resilient Living Research CampusCharacterize thermally ● Load with standard NiChrome wire ● Perform initial power vs equilibrium temperature calibrations ○ Various pressures of Helium and Hydrogen gas ● Take thermal camera images of the glass surface to estimate validity of thermal radiation heat estimate
Initial Calibration: In ProcessInitial commissioning and calibration of first prototype is in process
Step 3: Initial ReplicationCritical goals: ● Conclusively prove to us that the effect is replicable with different samples of wire and attainable in our apparatus ● Develop a specific written procedure for other investigators to use in order to exactly replicate the experiment and findings ● Test the procedure in near real time via video connection and near simultaneous replication by Ryan in USAProcedure: ● Arrange to ship length of Celani Wire to Ryan in USA (on going) ● Nicolas and Mathieu bring apparatus to Celani ● Keep a video conference connection open to Ryan & Bob ● Possibly verify calibration of power vs temperature ● Replace one NiChrome wire with Celanis wire ● Load with Hydrogen ● ...record procedure
Step 4: Facilitate MassiveReplication EffortGoal: Orchestrate a large number of exact experimental replications thatunambiguously show excess heat. ● Survey all ICCF17 attendees for replication experiment suggestions ● Raise funds through crowdsourcing website, private donations, etc ● Announce the replication effort in all forms of media we can ● Solicit recommended and interested testing institutionsFirst round of replications - Small, exclusive group, to ideally includerespected organisations that have the highest capability for further study andanalysis of effect and research post experiment. These will be well documentedand publicized, including live broadcast, to raise excitement and credibility, andfirmly secure the "Celani Cell" as the defining experiment of the New Fire age.Second round of replication - Offer many, many "Celani Cells" for sale withappropriate instructions and liability waivers/disclaimers. Continue to documentthe successful replications in a global replication data repository.
First Round of Replications● Build between 5 and 10 apparati● Select 1 or 2 institutions on each continent to perform the replication experiment● Require conformance to initial test protocol● Ship the apparatus● Send a team to assist: ○ Technician/consultant ○ Videographer ○ Interpreter if necessary● After the initial replication, the investigating institution is free to experiment on their own, with a commitment to publish data and findings openly.
Global Data FlowData from the experiment will be collected with a pre-set up data acquisition system,synched to a central database, and shared in near real time with the world. World-wide audience Replication Experiments Web interface Unified Data Repository For a preview of the web interface, go to: http://www.hugllc.com/hugnetlab/
Second Round ofReplicationOffer copies of the cell for sale to any party interested in demonstrating theeffect or dummy cells to those wanting to have a piece of history. Thedrawings will already be published, and the instrumentation will already beopen source, but many institutions will want to start on this research path with aproven, reliable demonstration of the effect.Sale of each one will have to be accompanied by a liability waiver.Use the proceeds to continue promoting the validity of the effect and supportingresearch.
