Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions Sourcebook
Date: Tuesday, August 19, 2008 @ 22:04:44 GMT
From New Energy Times Update/Aug 18, 2008: The 236th American Chemical Society national meeting and exposition begins today in Philadelphia with a breakthrough for low-energy nuclear reaction research.
Editors Jan Marwan and Steven B. Krivit received the first copy of the American Chemical Society Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions Sourcebook, published by Oxford University Press...
This book is a summary of selected experimental and theoretical research performed over the last 19 years that gives profound and unambiguous evidence for low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), historically known as cold fusion...
The American Chemical Society has commissioned a second LENR sourcebook, which will be based on LENR presentations at Wednesday's New Energy Technology Symposium.

Understanding this process is one of the most challenging and perhaps important issues in the scientific world. This book includes previously unpublished studies, new and controversial theories to approach LENR with access to new sources and experimental results. The book offers insight into this controversial subject and will help readers re-evaluate their perspective on LENR for a possible alternative energy source...
[Vlad: I'm particularly interested in the reaction of the the world's largest scientific society to the Thorsten Ludwig's presentation:
Concepts and experiments for utilizing van der Waals forces and Casimir effect for new energy technologies (ENVR 110)

In 1912 Max Plank upgraded his quantum theory realizing that the ground state is half a Plank's constant and not equal to zero. The famous chemist Walter Nernst expanded this concept to space itself, stating that the vacuum must be filed with energy in the form of quantum fluctuations. Feynman, Tomonaga and Schwinger formed the modern quantum field theory, in which empty space is full of energy. The sum of these quantum fluctuations is the energy density of space. These fluctuations give rise to a number of effects including van der Waals force and the Casimir effect. The author will present his measurements of the Casimir force and concepts how this vast energy resource can be tapped to power new energy technologies. The knowledge of this sea of energy that we live in is very useful for technologies such as catalytic hydrogen production, plasma-, magnetic technologies and advanced nuclear chemistry.]
