NEW ENERGY TIMES News Flash August 27, 2008

Purdue University has sanctioned nuclear engineering professor Rusi Taleyarkhan for research misconduct.

Taleyarkhan had appealed charges stemming from his claims to have discovered a new process for creating nuclear energy, which he calls bubble fusion.


Purdue administrators issued their report today affirming the charges.

Among the sanctions, Taleyarkhan will no longer be designated the Arden L. Bement, Jr. Professor of Nuclear Engineering. He loses all associated rights and privileges, including the allocation of discretionary resources.

Taleyarkhan's mentoring of graduate students will be monitored and reviewed for three years.

The sanctions follow a string of challenges he has faced in recent years.

Multiple government investigations into allegations of scientific fraud and fabrication by Taleyarkhan have come up null. The final charges were made public by Purdue several weeks ago. Taleyarkhan called the charges "trumped up" and appealed.

He told New Energy Times today that he was advised months ago by a Purdue administrator of this inevitable outcome, before the review process ended.

The misconduct allegations first appeared in Nature as a result of communications from Purdue professors Lefteri Tsoukalas and Tatjana Jevremovic.

On July 28, 2008, New Energy Times began to reveal information that supported Taleyarkhan's claims that the Purdue administration had threatened to intimidate and harm him. Taleyarkhan said today he has been made a scapegoat.

On March 7, 2008, Taleyarkhan filed a civil complaint against Tsoukalas and Jevremovic with the state of Indiana regarding events that occurred in the Purdue School of Nuclear Engineering.

The section of the complaint called "Nature of This Action" states, “This is a conspiracy involving certain individuals who made public statements to a worldwide magazine, Nature Magazine, through means that have falsely and maliciously defamed Taleyarkhan and have sought to harass, discriminate and intimidate Taleyarkhan on numerous occasions for the purpose of trying him and important scientific research, all with claims that have no merit."

Taleyarkhan told New Energy Times today that Darla J. Mize, former administrative assistant to Tsoukalas and a key witness in the case, said that she received threats today from Purdue administrators for her support of Taleyarkhan.

In her signed affidavit that is part of the Taleyarkhan complaint, Mise describes fraudulent behavior by Tsoukalas and Jevremovic in the School of Nuclear Engineering.

HOW CAN THEY DO THIS IN LIGHT OF THE FACT THAT BUBBLE FUSION HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE VALID AND REAL IN THE PEER REVIEWED NUCLEAR ENGINEERING JOURNAL?

It should be obvious that Fusion is being blocked from being investigated. Farnsworth invented it in the 50's from an earlier discovery, and he suffered dearly for it.

I just saw a program on the Science Channel about sonofusion and professor Taleyarkhan.  Attempts were made by other labs and researchers to replicate his findings.

The conclusion was that no fusion neutrons were generated.  Any neutrons that Taleyarkhan observed were likely to be from his own pulse neutron generator (PNG) used to inflate the bubbles in the first place.  This is a worse result than from IEC (which readily produces fusion, but doesn't produce more energy than it consumes.)

No mention was made of the academic misconduct charges.  It was a straightforward report of the attempts to replicate Taleyarkhan's experiment and the results thereof.

I think that there might have been some problems with the replication setup (as Taleyarkhan maintains) so perhaps this is a viable method of producing fusion, after all, but at this point it does not look good for Sonofusion.


Later.

[newenergytimes.com]Excerpt:

...On the other hand, The New York Times published a document allegedly written and signed by Adam Butt, a graduate student at Purdue. It was perhaps the most damning evidence, which caused great harm to Taleyarkhan's reputation. This alleged statement also formed the basis of Taleyarkhan's admonishment by Congress and punishment by Purdue.

Here is the version obtained by New Energy Times [newenergytimes.com]. Note that there is no signature, no notary stamp, no statement about a willingness to testify under oath, and no statement that the author wrote it "completely willingly and without influence and duress from any other individuals."

However, something about the text is peculiar. The first three paragraphs are written in third person. The remaining text is written in first person.

Here is the version located on the New York Times [graphics8.nytimes.com] Web site. It is the same as the version obtained by New Energy Times - the same unsigned document. Yet on May 11, 2007, Chang wrote [www.nytimes.com] in The New York Times that "Mr. Butt signed a statement...

Bubble fusion discoverer says his science is vindicated (Score: 1)

Purdue University professor Rusi Taleyarkhan who lost an appeal in a misconduct case last week says he is the victim of "blatant discrimination against Indian professors" by an errant administrator of the university.

The India born nuclear engineer and discoverer of 'bubble fusion', however, says the science behind his discovery has come unscathed after the ordeal he has undergone in the last two years.
