Emerging Energy Technologies

Emerging hydrogen based energy technologies are now demonstrating potential to provide carbon-free energy, suitable for baseload and transportation applications.

Existing technologies can be characterised as either:
  • Super-Chemical, or
  • Low Energy Nuclear.

Super-Chemical systems involve energy release from electron transitions to below ground state, (e.g. Mills, 2016).

Low energy nuclear systems release energy from nuclear tranistions, typically by neutron capture reactions, (e.g. Widom & Larsen, 2006).

Subtle Atomics has identified a new "Combined System" energy process that integrates both these processes, recognising that a highly de-excited hydrogen atom can transition to a neutron in the context of a neutron capture reaction.

Excess energy observations have been extensively reported previously from many hydrogen and deuterium energy systems, including by Colman & Seddon-Gillespie (1956), Moray (1978), Herman Anderson (1980), Yasuhiro Iwamura, Mark LeClair,  Mills (1980's-2016) and many Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) experimenters.

"Combined System" Energy Process

The new "Combined System" process involves two distict stages:
  • Stage 1 - highly de-excited hydrogen formation, and
  • Stage 2 - neutron formation and capture.

 Stages of the New "Combined System" Energy Process for Hydrogen

The "Combined System" energy process is expected to be similar to the 's-process' identified in nuclear astrophysics, as occuring in Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars.

A similar "Combined System" energy process is also expected for deuterium. In the presence of specific catalysts, deuterium can also transition to a highly de-excited state (Stage 1).  Highly excited deuterium can then transition to a double neutron (Stage 2A) during a "double neutron capture reaction (Stage 2B). 

Energy System Prototypes

Subtle Atomics has constructed a number of prototypes to test the validity of emerging theory and to investigate the viability of energy systems based on low energy nuclear, super-chemical and "Combined Systems".
