Sonofusion

Room temperature fusion using sound frequencies

Overview

"Sonoluminescence arises from acoustic cavitation -- the formation, growth and implosion of small gas bubbles in a liquid blasted with sound waves above 18,000 cycles per second. The collapse of these bubbles generates intense local heating." (PhysOrg; Mar. 2, 2005)

  • Sonofusion Just Now Starting to Go Mainstream - Considering the recent media fawning of the Purdue bench top fusion results, Leslie R. Pastor points out other sonofusion research as well as other energy alternatives that are being overlooked, similar to the AC v DC controversy of Edison's time. (PESN; July 14, 2005)
  • Thermonuclear Squeeze: Altered method extends bubble-fusion claim - An overview of the present status of the field, touching on the recent reports, one up-coming report, and the skeptics. (Science News; Jan. 21, 2006)
  • The new sound of fusion -  State-of-the-art science is capable of tapping sources of infinite energy and has been since the 1950s. The problem is, it has so far proved impossible to control this process. The energy is released in titanically destructive bursts. (Business-Standard; Mar. 18, 2004)
  • Sonofusion Going Mainstream - Can a collapsing bubble unleash huge amounts of energy? (ZPEnergy / New Scientist; Jan. 25, 2005)
  • How to Wean America Off Fossil Fuels in 15 Years - A review of the Arlington Institute Report: 'A Strategy: How To Move America Away from Oil.'  "Wild card game changers include everything from over-unity devices to cold fusion to sonoluminescence." (EV World; Mar. 20, 2004)

Research

Taleyarkhan's experiment
  • Purdue Findings Support Earlier Nuclear Fusion Experiments - Researchers at Purdue University have new evidence supporting earlier findings by other scientists who designed an inexpensive "tabletop" device that uses sound waves to produce nuclear fusion reactions. (Purdue University; July 12, 2005)
  • Bubble Fusion takes next hurdle - Haiko LIetz says the potential for cavitation to induce nuclear fusion lets physicists think in new directions of energy production. (ZPEnergy; July 18, 2005)
  • More Evidence for Tabletop Fusion - Slashdot post about Purdue University's statistically significant evidence that their tabletop fusion experiments were successful.  Notes that it still doesn't surpass a break-even point. (Slashdot; July 17, 2005)
  • Bench Top Sonofusion at Purdue and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute - IEEE reports apparatus that produces nuclear fusion inside tiny vapor bubbles may one day give us cheap, clean, and virtually limitless energy. (PESN; April 28, 2005)
  • Evidence Bubbles Over To Support Tabletop Nuclear Fusion Device (ScienceDaily; Mar. 3, 2004) - Inexpensive process generates nuclear reactions by creating tiny bubbles, which implode with tremendous force. New York Times and Physics News opine, "many scientists [see] uncomfortable resemblance to 'cold fusion' which has now been discredited." Actually "cold fusion" has been proven soundly.  PES review pending in a few days. (Submitted by Marc Plotkin)

  • Temperature inside collapsing bubble 4x that of Sun - Using a technique employed by astronomers to determine stellar surface temperatures, chemists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have measured the temperature inside a single, acoustically driven collapsing bubble. "We used to talk about the bubble forming a hot spot in an otherwise cold liquid.  What we know now is that inside the bubble there is an even hotter spot, and outside of that core we are seeing emission from a plasma." (PhysOrg; Mar 2, 2005)
  • Students see the light: ISU pair succeeds in creating sonoluminescence - The extreme energy present in the experiment has been compared by researchers to processes occurring in the sun. (Idaho State Journal; Mar. 15, 2004)
  • More Bang From The Bubble? - "Sonofusion" may one day outshine other nuclear methods in generating energy. (Business Week; Mar. 29, 2004)

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
