    I totally agree with you. The Renaissance will not be made by me, but by all the scientists like you and also by all the guys like me that make things that are assumed to be impossible by the logic of the Middle Age: “Eppur si muove…”
    Who says the LENR are impossible because are barred by the first principle of thermodynamics, obviously, either have understood nothing of the thermodynamic principles, or have understood nothing of the LENR (or both).

  17. E. FOX

    Dear Rossi,
    I am a physicist with white hair and I know that there are a sea of mysteries still to be explained. What is worse is that there are many normally accepted explanations that are just fantasies of convenience or inventions to put a patch to otherwise faltering theories. Very famous names have fallen into these traps. If it was used to defend a current theory or preconceived interests, many thorny experimental evidences were put under feet and sometimes even the principle of conservation of energy and the principle of causality, stifling all legitimate curiosity and progress.
    The reaction to LENR of the official environments was one of many evidences.
    My feeling, according to what Feynmann said, is that from 60-80 years we have been living an obscurantist Middle Age of theoretical physics.
    It now seems that a timid reaction to this situation is waking up, but it takes someone who is able to give a shoulder to the system and is able to make a decisive leap and open the door that can lead us to the stars. Could you be this someone?
    I believe that in the Dirac equation (mutilated by Heisenberg and others) and in its correct interpretation and application there could be a key to a very important step.
    What do you think ?

    Dear Andrea:
    I read you are damning yourself with the solder while inventing the control board for the direct production of electricity from the Ecat SK. I suppose you are not allowing this job to a professional solder for confidentiality reasons.
    Do you know the technology FPAA ( Field Programmable Analog Array)? I think it can help you. See here:

  21. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Can you give us a little insight in how you are trying to develop the ‘infinite COP’ Ecat:
    1. Trial and error method to improve the electrical output step by step or
    2. Building a device that must do the job, based on theoretical assumptions.
    And further:
    3. How is heat production going on?
    4. Any chance that a customer will publish some information soon?
    5. Is there more than one E-cat SK plant in operation now?
    Thank you for answering our questions.

  23. Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    A couple of years ago you discovered that it was possible to extract electric energy from the EcatQX.
    When you now work to tap electric energy from the EcatSK do you
    a) basically use the same principle.
    b) use the same principle but with much more improved electronics.
    c) use a different approach.

    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik

  24. Andrea Rossi

  27. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The Indianapolis 500 cars require the equivalent of 600kW of power. Theoretically, could an eCat-SK-Electric be sized to provide that much power? While fuel stops would be eliminated, stops for tire changes might be still required. Thoughts?

  28. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    We are far from that. Premature.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  29. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You missed my attempt at Biblically related humor where I posted “any scraps from the Master’s table will be quickly devoured”.

    See Mathew Chapter 15: 27-28

    27 “First let the children eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”
    28 “Lord,” she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Do you think that electron capture can be generated by the deformation of the k orbital of the electron?

  36. Enrich

    Are you informed that the US has reopened the Idaho Test Reactor ( TREAT ) to improve the testing of nuclear fuels to make them disaster proof, to avoid catastrophic events?
    In this facility, built inside an area of 2300 sq km, about 80 km far from Idaho Falls, they are making experiments to spur the nuclear power industry, because they say it is the sole way to reduce the global warming. What is your opinion?
    E.

  37. Andrea Rossi

    Enrich:
    Yes, I read of it. Very interesting. Whereas it is not true that nuclear power is the sole existing solution to the G.W., it is true that in the USA the 20% of the electric energy is made by means of nuclear plants; as a consewquence of this fact, to make R&D to make nuclear fuels safer is fundamental.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  38. Dear Andrea,
    on the ecat.com website we find the following estimates, referring to versions of ECat prior to QX / SK
    ECAT Energy Density> 100 000 x oil
    ECAT Power Density> 100 kW / kg
    ECAT Fuel Reserves> 10 billion years
    ECAT Fuel Cost <1/1000 x Oil
    Can you update them?
    I suppose that right now the processing costs are still significantly higher than the costs of the raw material.
    Don't you think that instead of talking about infinite COP would it be better to give a real estimate of energy purchase costs from future customers? Can you already promise a saving of at least 50% or is it premature?

  39. Andrea Rossi

  40. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    My previous posts was not an attempt to gather design information, although any scraps from the Master’s table will be quickly devoured. When I did prototype development, I used Expresspcb. https://www.expresspcb.com/. It provided free, easy to use pcb layout software including stand component patterns and they could turnaround a few pcbs in as little as one day. They were also reasonably priced.

    My other comment dealt with microcontrollers or microprocessors. I used the TI MSP430 as it had a wealth of built-in hardware (timers, D/A, A/D, etc.) and was easy to use. They also have inexpensive test boards to help learning their micro.

    When you are doing rapid prototyping and have a design pretty well set but are adjusting parameters, such as event timing or control logic, a micro can facilitate the ease of changes.

  41. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Our Team is using sophisticated softwares and simulation systems, but I thank you for your suggestions, as always.
    I can see you are quite skilled in the matter!
    Warm Regards,

  44. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Are you using microcomputers/microcontrollers in your control board? Once the board is designed, built and tested, many minor changes in timing, logic, etc. can be accommodated by reprogramming the micro. Or is the control timing so critical that discrete component implementation is required?

  45. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Sorry, field mined by confidentiality.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  46. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    I am glad to hear you are still positive about the Electric E-Cat. I remember at one point you said you were making control boards by hand, which I would expect is not the most accurate way to make them. Are you still doing this, or have you found a better way?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  47. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    We are still in an R&D phase, therefore I am still making by hand ( solder, board and components at hand ) the control box, correcting on the paper the schematic when errors pop up. It will be manufactured by robots when and if the system will work.
    I am very optimistic about the fact that it could work, but so far it is premature. The fact that making a board by hand is not accurate is not true. It is slower, of course, but, you know, robots are fast, but they do not invent. They make things faster after things have been invented. Fortunately, otherwise I’d be jobless, albeit I have a plan B: could play drums with you at the piano and Thomas Florek at the guitar. “The A.I. Fused”
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  48. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    How is work progressing with direct electricity generation from the E-Cat SK?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  49. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    We are working like dogs. The theory id sound, the reactor is OK, now it’s all in the electronics. The boards I made so far have not been so good, but we are progressing and I believe we are getting closer and closer to success. If we succeed, the COP becomes infinite.

  61. Colin

    Dear Mr Rossi, It is strange the current problems didn’t show up during the very long testing process you carried out to demonstrate 5 sigma reliability.

  62. Andrea Rossi

    Colin:
    Think to Boeing: isn’t it strange that the problem of the instrumentation didn’t show up during the 5 sigma reliability surely they did ?
    It is normal that when you pass from a prototype in the R&D lab to industrial applications many shortcomings show up due to specific situations that in a lab you do not have.
    And it is normal that the problems are resolved. Our Clients know it and signed a disclaimer related to the probability of initial malfunctions. For this reason it is necessary a back up.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  63. Chuck Davis

    @Peter:
    What has been discovered 1000 years ago that could be possibly compared with even the current Ecat design?

  64. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    When the eCat (whatever variant) is in a self-sustaining mode (SSM) of operation, and you command an immediate shut-down, what is the average time before thermal power generations ceases?

  65. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    It depends on the control system that the Client wants. To stop the heat exchange immediately a by-pass of the secondary is necessary.

    I consider it wise to give precedence to the problems that inevitably arise in all the first uses of prototypes.
    a) Do these problems have stable solutions?
    b) Your first-aid measures become less burdensome over time?
    c) During this phase do other possible customers require new contracts?
    d) Even in this difficult phase, is the financial balance sheet of your initiative positive?
    I follow you with ever-lively interest and sympathy, wishing you all the best.
    May God help you and bless your efforts.

    Dear John:
    My apologies for the late answer.
    I think that in this research line there is a substantial continuity, demonstrated by the evolutionary experimental process in the role of interactive atom boundary, in particular in the H atom: this thread could be classified as follows: crystal lattice and materials with static and dynamic interactions; oscillating electromagnetic fieldsinteracting by resonance; Coulombian and prohibitive electrostatic barriers; magnetic fields: border of the interactions and plasmas.
    My opinion is that Rossi’s innovation consists in havinf exploited the effects listed above to an experimental and technological level.

    Dear Andrea:
    I read the comment of a troll that says that what appears in the video http://www.ecatskdemo.com is not the spectrometry of a plasma, but of an astute light source or a laser.
    This obviously is an attempt to diffuse false information, because the idiot that wrote this ignores how is the image and a spectrum of a laser, how is the real ( not theoretical ) spectrum of a black body, and also pretends to ignore the part of your presentation in which you compared the calorimetric results with the results from the Wien-Boltzmann measurements.
    Not to mention the facts that a light source or a laser would consume an enormous amount of energy to produce the light of the plasma we can see in the video in real dimensions.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    News about the direct production of electricity by the plasma?

  108. JPR

    Mariana Heyes:
    You are wrong: the full readings are not 20 000: they are 20 180 in this very moment! I just checked on Researchgate , because it seemed to me the number was unbelievable…you are right, this figure speaks clearly about the interest that the theoretical-experimental paper of Rossi has raised in the scientific echelons.

  109. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    How is the performance of the industrial E-Cat SK these days, in comparison to when you started its operation?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  110. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    The performance is the same as at the start, but we have many problems that emerge now and again. Our constant attention is necessary. We are in a pioneeering phase.

    Hello A. Rossi

    With the good days coming, the first industrial E-Cat will no longer need to heat the industrial premises for which it is intended.
    1 – Will it be stopped until the next first cold of September?
    2 – Does it provide heat for another activity?
    3 – Will it continue to work to store experience and possibly make corrections?
    I wish you all the success in the R & D of E-Cat Electric and hope that you will soon publish on this subject
    Best regards

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I found this report made in 2004 from the US Army Corps of Engineers. It is a report of the good job you mde for them to evaluate your US patent related to the Seebeck effect, to make electricity by means of heat with thermoelectric devices you invented. Has this anything to do with the E-Cat SK-Leonardo ?
    Here is the very interesting link:
    https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a432046.pdf

  123. Andrea Rossi

    John:
    This link is related, as you correctly said, with my thermoelectric Seebeck Effect technology I developed between 1998 and 2004, it has nothing to do with the Ecat SK-Leonardo .
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    For hydrogen-hydrogen fusion, there should be neutrinos (among other products) generated.

    1. Have you tested for the presence of neutrinos in your testing?
    2. If so, have you detected any?
    3. If detected, does the activity rate correlate with output power?

    Dear Andrea:

    When I read of your pioneer market phase assessment of the ECat SK performance versus your one-year test started about 4 years ago, I recognize the very real change in how you, Andrea, are likely forming your opinion. First, there is the choice of the term “pioneer market phase”, a phrase suggesting you are being provided sophisticated advice, a perspective affirmed by this next point. Second, I think the 5-Sigma testing in 2017 makes an excellent demarcation point for “before” and “after”. You are is now focused upon your customers’ reasonable desire for 5-6 Sigma performance and so are very willing to say 6/10, reflecting this far more demanding customer driven yardstick.

    It is my hope that your mysterious global partner has contributed technical specialists in SPC, Statistical Process Control, having the full capability of analyzing and breaking down the pioneer phase problems into the different root causes. IMO, this will put you/Leonardo Inc. years ahead of all presumed competitors.

    Further, the ironing out of the production problems hindering 5-6 Sigma performance now will fundamentally and dramatically change Leonardo Inc’s ability to rapidly expand production. Expanding production of a 5-6 Sigma product leads to vastly different consequences at the production line and at the customer premises than rapidly expanding production of a 2-3 Sigma product. Of course, this directly improves financial and cash flow performance, the natural result of an expanding pool of very happy customers . . . a result that cements in the mind the Brand meaning of ECat SK (and ECat SKL) as being a superior technology (performing at 5-6 Sigma), an excellent example of building Brand Equity.

    IMO, this view reflects your spirit and character that is rooted in setting the 24 hour marathon record when you were younger. One can imagine the nature of Self that is nurtured and then forged so as to be capable of such a focused effort.

    Are you now aiming for 5-6 Sigma performance of the ECat SK at your customer premises.

    My best for you and your team,

    Buck

    Dear Andrea,
    This is a meta question.
    Why do you think that you are encountering some issues with your production ready E-Cat SK? Do you think there wasn’t enough testing before launch? Or are the issues specific to the environment of the clients?
    Regards
    Patrick

  138. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    I think it is normal for a revolutionary product, without a history of experience, to find problems when passes from the R&D to the commercial applications. We had many examples of technological giants that found errors made during the manufacturing of new products that generated dramatic consequences. We must be cautious.

    Dear Andrea, I have found the article written by Ch.Sremmenos very interesting and thought provoking. This is where your JONP is of immeasurable value in the modern age of investigative physics i.e. a platform where people can put forward views without being over ruled by those in positions of authority. I will be the first to say that physics is a subject that requires many minds to come together in order to solve what is probably the greatest mystery in the world i.e. energy, the origin of it and its destiny assuming that energy requires a container to be produced and by which to exist. Thereby the production is the input, the container is the energy and the total output/dissolution is equal to the input. A very simple none technical explanation upon which many questions can be asked, such as what is the container made from, can the container gain energy or is it able to lose energy? and thereby a multitude of questions and theories are able to be put forward. I have a few theories of my own, some from observations from an embodiment of ideas and some that I claim to be intuitive and thereby speculative but nevertheless I consider valuable towards this elusive activity that we call energy. Also gravity I believe to be a major player in this activity. In the meantime I will study the article and provide some thoughts on the subject in the near future. Regards, Eric Ashworth
    P.S. With regards to the mention of iter it is using common sense, not possible to push from a 360 degree angle to achieve fusion. It has to come from a pull, from a point but you have to understand gravity, unfortunately tax payers pay for this persistent distractive nonsense.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Based on your answer bounding the thermal to electric conversion efficiency of the eCat-SK Leonardo to between 45% and 95% we can note some projections. Assuming a 50% conversion efficiency, the 22kW eCat would produce 11kW of electrical power. For a 240 VAC output voltage, the current would be about 45 Amps. This would require 6 AWG copper wire, or the equivalent. I made this calculation to show how much power you are dealing with and the difficulty of your effort. Best wishes on your endeavor.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    1. Have you observed the presence of helium in long term operation of eCats? I know helium diffusion is a problem but it might help understand the nuclear reactions that are occurring?
    2. Are you seeing isotope changes in the long term operation of eCats?
    a. specifically in lithium?
    b. or nickel?
    3. Can we safely assume that for the eCat-SK Electric to be commercially viable, the conversion efficiency from thermal to electric must be greater than the typical Carnot efficiency (e.g., 45%) and limited to about 95% (due to electrical conversion efficiency to a standard (AC or DC) output)?

    Dear Andrea,
    I understand that you are not fully satisfied by the performance of the plant(s) in operation.
    Where do you believe lies the main cause of this:
    1. Automatic production of the ECats SK
    2. Integration of the ECats in the Ecat plant
    3. Reliability of the control of the plant
    4. Connection from Ecat plant to the customer (including control of heat needed by the customer).
    I am asking this because there are many, many readers willing to help you and make this a success, including me. I hope these problems (or challenges?) will be solved soon.
    Good luck to you and your team!
    Kind regards, Gerard McEk
    PS
    At this moment there is only one winner, it seems and that is your wife, but if you can get your plant(s) work at 100% of your satisfaction, you are the winner, once and for all!

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In the last few years you have focused, it appears, on stable energy output, always under linear control.
    1. Have you looked at rapid energy output conditions?
    2. Does it make commercial sense to have an eCat that can rapidly change output levels, such as the equivalent of an internal combustion engine?
    3. If you operated an eCat not in the self sustaining mode (SSM), could you achieve output change time periods in the value of seconds or sub-seconds, ignoring heat exchanger issues?

  188. Xavier Pitz

    Dear Andrea,

    First of all I want to congratulate you & your team concerning the latest achievements concerning the e-cat developments/improvements.

    Just a few weeks ago, after the successfull demo of the commercial e-cat SK, what would have looked like something belonging to science fiction (an electric e-cat), now sounds like something relatively likely to become a reality.
    I know that (F9) “The results of the test can be positive or negative” most certainly still applies again here but reading your comment “We celebrated it here with a substantial step forward toward the electric Ecat that generates also the electric power to fuel itself” leads me to believe that you witnessed another major milestone/improvement of the e-cat.

    You must understand that for all of us, that just saw the e-cat SK in video but couldn’t feel its real heat yet, even the e-cat SK still somehow relates to science fiction. With the latest electrical developments, you are two realities ahead of us Andrea 😉 .

    The kind of exiting working environment that you live in is probably the fuel that powers you & your team to achieve all of those successes. So please continue this amazing work you are doing, but also, as powerfull as this fuel may be and as much as you proved being able to control other kind of reactions, please also very carefully control the burning rate of this one…

    Now concerning the possible name of the electrical version of the e-cat, I’m just wondering, if you name it after one of the greatest inventor of the latest 5 centuries (Leonardo), 500 years from now, what kind of device will bear your name (Rossi) ? :)
    I bet on something related to teleportation, [faster than light (FTL) or time] travel…
    Who knows, only time will tell, perhaps we will be able to witness it ourselves if one those 3 “Rossi” devices becomes reality.

    Non-fictional regards :)

    Xavier

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    you have written, “When we will be allowed to.”
    May I ask who doesn’t yet allow you to show your installations?
    Does it depend on yourself, your customers, your partner or…?
    I understand if you cannot reveal those details, because they obviously are connected with your secret commercial and technical projects.
    But it really is a pity, because such an immense invention would deserve to be shown publicly to the world immediately, even though it may still have some operating problems.
    The world needs desperately your installations immediately, applied in millions and millions of applications.
    It is such an immense revolution that it seems impossible that it is still hidden behind NDA.

    Sincerely,
    Italo R.

  199. Andrea Rossi

    Dr. Rossi:

    It’s good to see that the EcatSK is now in production and customers are signing up to obtain heat at reduced prices. Is the factory that is fabricating the EcatSKs the same factory that produced the ECAT units that were used in the 1 MW Doral demonstration? Continued success and provide any delivery numbers when you feel you can.

    @Chuck Davis,
    Interesting technology. I knew that it was only a matter of time and a better battery than lithium would be invented.

    Since we are still talking of 10+ years for an ECat powered car, because of certifications, these batteries should be widespread for sure at that time.

    Regards,
    Marco.

    Chuck Davis,

    I enjoyed your post, but paraphrasing Andrea Rossi, the solution will be an integrated one. The battery (or capacitor) should be large enough to handle peak loads and transients. The eCat may not be running all the time (e.g., during high ambient temperatures, during idle times or low speed times when the eCat would produce too much excess power, during parked times inside an enclosed volume — garage). True, the amount of battery space can be reduced. What I was previously attempting to show is that even an undersized eCat (22kW) could extend the range of an electric car so that the limiting factor would be the human need to stop and get out of the car.

  206. Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    I am the author of the paper about the iron and nickel
    nuclear structures (Alan Folmsbee, MSEE degree). The nickel
    nucleus mock-up is shown in Figure 9, next to copper and iron.
    This paper shows details of the iron nuclear structure, and
    the nickel mock-up just has two protons added on top of iron.
    You are interested in nickel, so you may want to see my
    youtube videos about nickel’s nuclear structure. This is
    a static nucleus theory, where the spherical baryons are
    stacked to form a cube with its faces covered by piles of
    more baryons. Those rules result in nickel having two coaxial
    rings of protons, like Gd, Fe, and Co. Gd has 18 protons in each
    ring and Fe, Co, and Ni have 12 protons in each ring. All other
    elements do not have coaxial rings of protons. The periodic
    table of nuclear structure is in the paper on iron. It shows the
    silhouettes of 118 elements. The catalytic property of Ni and Pt
    is now being evaluated by observing nuclear structures.

    A static sphere stacking was found to provide credible shapes
    for nuclei to be consistent with many physical properties of
    many elements. It shows why uranium fission fragments have two
    mass modes that differ by about 27 baryons. A cube 3x3x3 in
    the core of U is the cause of that property. The cube goes
    with one fragment during fission. The radioactivity of Pm and
    Tc is explained by the use of a cube 4x4x4 there. That cube
    is unstable.

    Chromium is the only antiferromagnetic element, so it has been
    modeled. Cr has a unique nuclear structure, with its two rings
    of protons being non-coaxial to the highest degree of all
    elements. Each ring has 10 protons. I wrote a paper on that
    and it will be submitted to a journal this week. It has images
    of carbon, argon, chromium and iron. The evidence is
    abundant to support the pyramidal cube theory of nuclear
    structure. My evidence website is…

    @Chuck Davis
    A mix of batteries and supercapacitors should be necessary.

    A lithium battery can’t be recharged too fast, so you can’t sustain the 400+KW of power of regenerative braking with a little 5-10kwh battery: in a such powerful braking, most of the energy would be wasted and MUST be wasted, otherwise the battery could explode.

    You can’t put a too big ECat with a small battery for the same reason: too much waste heat and battery overheating, you will have to underutilize the ECat for most of the time, because the battery should be recharged not too fast.

    A small lithium battery can’t provide enough peak power to accelerate, for the same reason: if you are at 50-60mph, you are providing already about 20KW and to accelerate you need an higher power for some time.

    Also abrupt change in current flow are bad for the life expectancy of the battery.

    A mix of a small battery and a small supercapacitor should be used: the supercapacitor provide the peak power for acceleration and for fully recover of regenerative braking acting as a buffer and slowly charging or discharging the small battery.

    Regards, Marco.

    At 10k$/kWh supercapacitors, I don’t think so,

    @Chuck Davis
    Better are supercapacitors. They are less polluting to produce and recycle, are less inflammable and support way more recharge cycles and istantaneous power. The only disadvantage is the capacity, but if you do not want a car that should sustain indefinitely 100 or more mph, but only legal speeds, a 20-30Kw Ecat and a few KWh supercapacitor should suffice… Just for sprint and for peak power in regenerative braking: in an emergency braking, the power required to absorb by the battery is often too high and the efficiency in energy recovery is low. With supercapacitors this is not a problem.
    Electric regards,
    Marco.

  223. Chuck Davis

    @Steven N. Karels,
    The large number of batteries in current EV design is to extend the range. With an Ecat on board most of those batteries can be tossed since the Ecat will be constantly recharging the remaining batteries, which would result in a major reduction of weight and price.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    On electric cars – the newer cars have all electric ranges of up to about 200+ miles. If you could have a 22 kW output eCat and convert nearly all of the energy into electricity, that would be sufficient to run highway speeds, with rest stops for the driver and passengers, across the country. For example, my 2015 Chevy Volt has an 11kW battery and I get about 30 miles of range. So if I drove at 60 mph, a 22kW electric generator should keep up with the demand. My point being with the newer, longer range cars, a continually operating eCat, with high enough conversion efficiency, would extend the electric range significantly. And any thermal output would be minimized. If you can make the eCat-SK Leonardo work, this is a natural market. Who would not want a car that you only had to refuel once or twice per year and no carbon emissions?

  231. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Right.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Dr Rossi
    Maybe this article will interest you.

    Little-understood crystals called “strange metals” appear to dissipate energy at a maximum rate allowed by the laws of quantum mechanics. The effort to understand this fundamental speed limit and what electrons are doing inside the materials has turned up surprising connections to black holes, gravity and quantum information theory.

    Dear Andrea,

    Leonardo seems to me appropriate because it is also the name of your Company.

    If you are looking for an acronym, why not Ecat-LH where LH stays for Lion Heart, the origin of Leonardo name.

    Can you confirm the goal of an Ecat with no external power supply has been achieved ?

    Wishes of Heart,
    Riccardo

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations with your progress on the electric Ecat. If this Ecat is really able to power itself, the the name Ecat SK Leonardo is truly well chosen. Leonardo da Vinci, the formidable genius, who excelled in so many disciplines, which seems also the the case for the Ecat SK Leonardo.
    I am not sure if what you published today, also means that you now have strong evidence that the Ecat SK Leonardo indeed works. If so, how many days has it been in operation without taking power from any other source?
    Kind regards, Gerard

  243. Andrea Rossi
