High Energy Light Signatures

Electro-detonation light flash morphology with specific electrodes, shows high energy secondary reactions occuring away from electrodes that appear indicative of self catalytic, high energy micro reactions that differ from conventional chemical reactions.

High energy secondary reactions are observed during electro-detonation when electrodes containing certain catalysts are used.  The effect has similarities to light emissions from commonly available sparklers.

The intensity of secondary reactions indicates that the reaction mechanism may be different to conventional chemistry. Possible non-chemical explanations include:

(i) De-excited electrons
In the presence of specific catalysts, electrons may potentially transition to states below ground state, catalysing subsequent reactions and releasing additional energy, (Mills, R., early 1980's).

(ii) Heavy Neutron Formation and Capture.   
The formation and subsequent capture of slow, heavy neutrons has been proposed (e.g. Widom Larsen, ~2003), to explain high energy reactions, heat and transmutation events in electrical systems containing hydrogen isotopes. 

(iii) "Combined Process". 
Subtle Atomics has identified a combined energy process where highly de-excited electrons transition to neutrons allowing subsequent neutron capture and significant energy release.

Observed high energy micro reactions may similar to those that cause cavitation pitting degredation of pump rotors and turbine blades.

Method:  Fuel mixes containing hydrogen were detonated using electical discharge.

Observations:  Certain combinations of electrodes and fuels have been slown to produce very high energy micro- reactions, observable  as distinct star-like light signatures. These reactions are indicative of a localised high energy reaction mechanism. 

Conclusion:  High energy reactions that differ from conventional chemistry may be possible using relatively low energy trigger conditions by electro-detonation in the presence of specific catalysts.
