While Lattice’s presentation at the American Nuclear Society’s 2012 winter meeting concerns production of significant, detectable LENR neutron fluxes during natural lightning discharges, the Widom-Larsen theory that helps us understand this experimentally observed natural phenomenon has potentially far-reaching implications for energy technology and national security writ large; URLs for two brief summaries and further discussion of this possible game-changer are provided.

Lattice Energy LLC-One Page Overview-ANS-LENR Neutrons in Lightning-Nov 20 2012

  1. 1. Lattice Energy LLC Commercializing a Safe, Next-Generation Source of ‘Green’ Nuclear EnergyLENR technology is potentially a game-changer for energy markets: involves a breakthroughparadigm shift in the physics of many-body, collective effects that may in turn enable development of truly‘green’ nuclear technology for power generation and other applications. This new LENR technology ispotentially revolutionary if successfully commercialized because it does not emit deadly ‘hard’ neutron orgamma radiation, nor does it produce biologically significant amounts of long-lived radioactive isotopes..Recent venue: American Nuclear Society 2012 Winter meeting, San Diego, CA:Wednesday, November 14 Session 11a (8:30 AM to 12:00 noon in Royal Palm Salon Three) - Discussionof Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions – Panel“Electroweak neutron production via e + p  n + ν and capture during lightning discharges”Lewis Larsen, President and CEO, Lattice Energy LLC, Chicago, IL USA15-PowerPoint slides + audio narration by Larsen (prerecorded version of what was presented live atthe ANS session #11a on Nov. 14, 2012 – total listening time is ~35 minutes)http://www.slideshare.net/lewisglarsen/audio-larsenelectroweak-neutron-production-and-capture-in-lightning-dischargesans-san-diego-nov-14-2012Tips for viewing and listening online: on Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012, we improved the timingsynchronization between the slide transitions and the explanatory audio track. At least with the MS-Internet Explorer browser, this SlideCast presentation should run by itself from start-to-finish with theslides being advanced automatically at the correct point in the narrative dialogue about each of the slides.That said, the auto-advance feature in SlideCast doesn’t always necessarily work perfectly in InternetExplorer and other web browsers such as Chrome or Firefox. Thus, if you hear an obvious transitionoccurring in the audio track (i.e., clicking and rustling noises in background indicating that we’re moving-on to the next slide; in some cases it is explicitly announced) and the next slide in the sequence fails toappear within 1-3 seconds, then please manually advance the slide currently being displayed by mouse-clicking on the right arrow button located just under the slide viewing window of the browser.Additional online summary information: while Lattice’s presentation at the American Nuclear Society’s2012 winter meeting concerns production of significant, detectable LENR neutron fluxes during naturallightning discharges, the Widom-Larsen theory that helps us understand this experimentally observednatural phenomenon has potentially far-reaching implications for energy technology and national securitywrit large; two brief summaries and further discussion of this possible game-changer are as follows:A public, concise one-page Executive Summary is available online at Lattice’s Internet presence onSlideShare as follows (it can either be viewed online in ‘fullscreen’ mode on a web browser ordownloaded as a pdf file after a decidedly perfunctory registration):http://www.slideshare.net/lewisglarsen/lattice-energy-llc-overview-august-15-2011A somewhat longer Company Vision document (only 11 PowerPoint slides) is available at:http://www.slideshare.net/lewisglarsen/lattice-energy-llc-company-visionseptember-11-2011Potential aerospace propulsion applications: Lattice has recently developed a concept for an LENRrapid-pulse-detonation propulsion system that could in principle be suitable for green atmosphericaircraft, energy-density-limited UAVs, and key spacecraft applications that are obvious. Radiologicallyspeaking, it would be totally clean and could provide tremendous weight/thrust performance advantagescompared to combusting fossil fuels or any conceivable chemical rocket propulsion technologies. Being‘clean’, it would also be totally unlike the late 1950s Project Orion. For a long-duration/range mission, theratio of the required mass of LENR fuel carried on-board divided by total aircraft/spacecraft system masswould likely be a minuscule number and thus potentially revolutionary if it is successfully engineered.Lewis Larsen lewisglarsen@gmail.com 1-312-861-0115 November 20, 2012
