New Interview with Alan Smith about his replication of the the LEC posted! Today we are proud to share with the LENR community the latest installment of our “Meet the Experimenters / Cold Talks” series in which we get a hands-on and frontline replication update from our very own Alan Smith at his laboratory, who has teamed up with Matt Lilley to join the increasing number of researchers that has been able to independently verify the so called LEC effect (Lattice Energy Converter) being developed by Frank Gordon and Harper Whitehouse.

For those that may be new to the concept, the LEC is a relatively simple to build experiment that produces a baffling effect: the creation of an spontaneous, small, but sustained and steady voltage and current, between electrodes co deposited with hydrogen by electrolytic means (so far has worked with Palladium but also with Iron!). The effect is consistent and very repeatable, but it has so far eluded a complete explanation. Join Ruby Carat and David Nygren as they interview Alan Smith about his recent participation in last months 14th IWHALM (held from August 29th to September 1st in Assisi, Italy), where Alan presented the concept and his early work on the LEC, and where the LEC replication (which was also presented in parallel by Jean Paul Biberian) took a centerpiece role, specially because of the relative simplicity and the high repeatability, which makes this effect potentially one of the most important breakthroughs in the field. One that can be verified and repeated by everyone interested. Alan Smith, talking directly from his laboratory, presents to us one of the stages of the LEC experiments he and Matt Lilley have been performing, and attempts a brief demonstration that seems to momentarily produce 350 millivolts…showing again the robustness of the LEC effect, even in the precarious conditions of an onscreen experimental demonstration. Alan then proceeds to provide us with an overview of his current thoughts on how the LEC works. His main hypothesis is that the hydrogen co-deposited under strain within the metallic lattice, is producing some type of low energy nuclear reaction that, in turn, gives rise to the production of a weak radiation emission robust enough to ionize the gases between the electrodes (separated by a very narrow gap), thus creating the voltage that is being measured, which can then be harnessed to perform work. Alan also discusses the chances and possibilities of this ever becoming an useful system for energy production, and -with some engineering improvements, some potential uses in the short term. We also get a brief but encouraging review of the ongoing replications, including the increasing number of LENR researchers that have already replicated the experiment, and explains how this number could increase significantly in a very short term. Some other very similar, and potentially linked and paralell developments, as Fabrice David’s “Fusion Diode”, are also briefly mentioned and discussed in relation to the LEC.
