BUBBLEGATE: Sonoluminescence - and Sonofusion - Acoustic Inertial Confinement Fusion - DARPA/UCLA/Oak Ridge Lab/Purdue Univ. - Coverup
This is kind of a big deal. Google keyword: BUBBLEGATE

UPDATE

It seems that a group of scientist DID use the idea of sonoluminescence to create fusion. It is called Acoustic Inertial Confinement Fusion. When they successfully produced results in France at NURETH-11 for peer review, they shortly afterward got hammered by the 'institutions'.

DARPA's involved, UCLA, Oak Ridge National Lab, Purdue University, and a few science journals.

Initially one of the scientists did experiments of Sonofusion at Oak Ridge National Labs, but they couldn't get a good enough ratio of repeatable results. I think the story goes like this...so, they went to Purdue University. They used a variation in techniques and became successful. This is when they decided to go to NURETH-11. A lawsuit was brought into the mix, and all funding got cut off and they got caught up in legal issues, which resulted in the main scientist getting debarred and discredited (no funding, etc.), though affidavits out the butt proved otherwise.

See below for the articles etc.,

Holy shit. I hit a motherlode...

Lahey Letter to Physics Today
Feb. 20, 2009
Response from Marty Hanna is below Lahey letter

You write, “Independent research groups have so far failed to confirm the result of Taleyarkhan’s group.” Indeed, this is at the heart of much of the controversy concerning bubble fusion. However, this is false. Edward Forringer, William Bugg, Adam Butt, and Yiban Xu have performed and reported independent confirmations of bubble fusion. This is in addition to on-demand public demonstration of successful outcomes of bubble fusion on two occasions.

Lahey Affidavit

To the best of my
recollection, I received from Taleyarkhan summary documentation of successful sonofusion
results in June, 2005.
How in the world could someone surmise that DARPA-UCLA funds,
which arrived into the Purdue financial system in June, 2005, actually contribute to the intense
underlying research to find a way to self-nucleate in a totally different fluid-mixture of vastly
different properties, in a differently designed test cell, with random vs timed nucleation, conduct
a large array oftests, including careful control experiments, within "seconds" of receiving
funding from a new source? The mere thought of suggesting the use of such funds for something
already largely accomplished (and only requiring publication) is totally bizarre.

Evidence bubbles over to support tabletop nuclear fusion device

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Researchers are reporting new evidence supporting their earlier discovery of an inexpensive "tabletop" device that uses sound waves to produce nuclear fusion reactions.
Rusi Taleyarkhan

The researchers believe the new evidence shows that "sonofusion" generates nuclear reactions by creating tiny bubbles that implode with tremendous force. Nuclear fusion reactors have historically required large, multibillion-dollar machines, but sonofusion devices might be built for a fraction of that cost.

Bubblegate Testimonials and Affidavits

Back to Bubblegate Portal



Before Lefteri Tsoukalas was removed as the head of the Purdue School of Nuclear Engineering, an extra-legal committee that he organized produced the Feb. 23, 2006, Statement from Adam Butt. Someone provided this document to Kenneth Chang of The New York Times. Chang has declined to confirm or deny whether Tsoukalas provided the document. Chang has confirmed that he received other related documents from Tsoukalas. Chang made the decision to publish the unsigned, unnotarized, unsworn, unverified document.

The Statement from Adam Butt caused severe problems for Rusi Taleyarkhan, a professor in the School of Nuclear Engineering. In response, numerous people came to Taleyarkhan's defense with testimonials and affidavits. A number of the affidavits accuse Tsoukalas of serious grievances. Some of them are now part of the public record in legal proceedings.

external neutrons). The second experiment involved self-nucleation for which Ken Suslick of
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign himself was invited to and did indeed randomly select
neutron detectors for mounting on the test cells and for use as controls. He also insisted on doing
the experiment in a particular way and we accommodated each of his requests during setup. At
the end of the day, the detectors showed positive signatures of neutron emission as evidenced by
several people in the audience. Neither I, nor anyone from Purdue engaged in misconduct of any
kind and in fact went out ofour way to assist the visitors engage in a successful review.

Recent Advances and Results in Acoustic Inertial Confinement Bubble Nuclear Fusion
R. P. Taleyarkhan

Abstract

This paper provides an update on developments since the first announcement of the discovery in 2002 of acoustic inertial confinement (a.k.a bubble) nuclear fusion. A theoretical foundation for the supercompression of acoustically driven deuterated bubble clusters has been developed and published. Initially, bubble fusion experiments used external neutron sources for nucleating bubble clusters, and despite compelling evidence, lingering doubts remained because of the use of external neutrons to maintain neutron production. This was overcome using a self-nucleation method. In those novel experiments, seeding of nanometer bubbles was accomplished using nuclear-decay recoils from dissolved uranyl nitrate. Bubble fusion experiments have been replicated successfully, and confirmatory results were reported at least five times since 2005. Moreover, speculations and controversies about the discovery related to our bubble fusion experiments have now been conclusively addressed, rebutted, and dismissed.

A standing wave of sound creates a bubble in liquid. When the bubble implodes, light is emitted. This is called: Sonoluminescence. Awesome.

Sonoluminescence is the emission of short bursts of light from imploding bubbles in a liquid when excited by sound.

In 1989 a major experimental advance was introduced by Felipe Gaitan and Lawrence Crum, who produced stable single-bubble sonoluminescence (SBSL). In SBSL, a single bubble trapped in an acoustic standing wave, emits a pulse of light with each compression of the bubble within the standing wave. This technique allowed a more systematic study of the phenomenon, because it isolated the complex effects into one stable, predictable bubble. It was realized that the temperature inside the bubble was hot enough to melt steel. Interest in sonoluminescence was renewed when an inner temperature of such a bubble well above one million kelvins was postulated. This temperature is thus far not conclusively proven, though recent experiments conducted by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign indicate temperatures around 20,000 K.

:sonoluminescence:

Sonoluminescence can occur when a sound wave of sufficient intensity induces a gaseous cavity within a liquid to collapse quickly. This cavity may take the form of a pre-existing bubble, or may be generated through a process known as cavitation. Sonoluminescence in the laboratory can be made to be stable, so that a single bubble will expand and collapse over and over again in a periodic fashion, emitting a burst of light each time it collapses. For this to occur, a standing acoustic wave is set up within a liquid, and the bubble will sit at a pressure anti-node of the standing wave. The frequencies of resonance depend on the shape and size of the container in which the bubble is contained.

~ The light flashes from the bubbles are extremely short—between 35 and a few hundred picoseconds long—with peak intensities of the order of 1–10 mW.

~ The bubbles are very small when they emit the light—about 1 micrometre in diameter—depending on the ambient fluid (e.g., water) and the gas content of the bubble (e.g., atmospheric air).

~ Single-bubble sonoluminescence pulses can have very stable periods and positions. In fact, the frequency of light flashes can be more stable than the rated frequency stability of the oscillator making the sound waves driving them. However, the stability analyses of the bubble show that the bubble itself undergoes significant geometric instabilities, due to, for example, the Bjerknes forces and Rayleigh–Taylor instabilities.

~ The addition of a small amount of noble gas (such as helium, argon, or xenon) to the gas in the bubble increases the intensity of the emitted light.

Bubble Fusion

Bubble fusion, also known as sonofusion, is the non-technical name for a nuclear fusion reaction hypothesized to occur during a high-pressure version of sonoluminescence, an extreme form of acoustic cavitation. Officially, this reaction is termed acoustic inertial confinement fusion (AICF) (see ICF) since the inertia of the collapsing bubble wall confines the energy, causing an extreme rise in temperature. The high temperatures that sonoluminescence can produce raise the possibility that it might be a means to achieve thermonuclear fusion...

...US patent 4,333,796,[2] filed by Hugh Flynn in 1978, appears to be the earliest documented reference to a sonofusion-type reaction.

In the March 8, 2002 issue of the peer-reviewed journal Science, Rusi P. Taleyarkhan and colleagues at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) reported that acoustic cavitation experiments conducted with deuterated acetone (C3D6O) showed measurements of tritium and neutron output that were consistent with the occurrence of fusion. The neutron emission was also reported to be coincident with the sonoluminescence pulse, a key indicator that its source was fusion caused by the sonoluminescence.[3]

Shock wave simulations seem to indicate that the temperatures inside the collapsing bubbles may reach up to 10 megakelvins, i.e. as hot as the center of the Sun. A 2008 study has provided data demonstrating bubble temperatures exceeding 100,000K and a pressure dependence that indicated temperatures above 106K could be expected under sonofusion conditions.[4] Although the apparatus operates in a room temperature environment, this is not cold fusion (as commonly termed in the popular press) because the nuclear reactions would be occurring at the very high temperatures in the core of the imploding bubbles.[1]

Excellent article on Sonoluminescence and Fusion.



Sobering Thoughts from a Beaker: Fusion Anomaly Reported in Non-{Science} Magazine

March 5 Evidence showing that nuclear fusion can occur in a beaker of liquid excited by sound waves, has produced a new flurry of press activity reminiscent of that around the 1989 announcement by Pons and Fleischmann that they had achieved fusion in an electrochemical cell. The new evidence, reporting on experiments by a team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, is reported in an March 8, 2002 article in Science magazine that was released yesterday. As then, the prevailing popular delusions about what science is dominate the discussion, even by the scientists themselves.

As the announcment of the 1989 cold fusion anomaly came under attack from lying establishment physicists, discussion unfortunately, degenerated into practical arguments over whether or not, and how soon, a cold-fusion cell in every basement could replace the gas furnace or oil burner.

Whether the results announced in the 8 March Science article, ``Evidence for Nuclear Emissions During Acoustic Cavitation,'' prove sound or not, we are reminded again that scientific progress can result only from the posing and resolution of true paradoxes in the mind of an experimental investigator. The important subject in this case is sonoluminescence, the emission of pulses of blue light from the collapse of air bubbles in a liquid that has been excited by sound waves, first studied in Germany in 1934. How a light wave could be produced by a sound wave was the unsolved paradox.

Instead of a 'fluid', what if the containment of the bubble was a magnetic field?

The emphasis is on looking for a link between the various forms of SL observed and the severity of bubble collapse or implosion. A simple energy analysis is also presented to enable the search for an appropriate parameter space and an experimental technique for achieving energy densities required for triggering fusion reactions within the bubble.

Sonoluminescence is an extraordinary nonlinear oscillation in which a bubble concentrates acoustic energy density by 12 orders of magnitude to make a flash of ultraviolet light which can be as short as 35.picoseconds. Time resolved spectra reveal the formation of a Planck blackbody spectrum even when the photon- electron mean free path is much bigger than the micron plasma which forms inside the imploded bubble. These measurements will be explained in terms of a phase transition driven by Debye screening. While sonoluminescence has not yet created conditions for nuclear fusion, triboluminescence the mother of sonoluminescence- is a source of nanosecond xray pulses, and the phonon spectra of ferroelectrics provide a route to a palm sized neutron source.

Taleyarkhan's group presented their sonofusion results at a meeting of the Acoustical Society of America.
Evidence for nuclear emissions during neutron seeded acoustic bubble cavitation
Taleyarkhan, R. P.; West, C. D.; Cho, J. S.; Lahey, R. T., Jr.; Block, R. C.; Nigmatulin, R., The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, vol. 112, iss. no. 5, p. 2269-2269
In cavitation experiments with deuterated acetone, statistically significant tritium decay activity above background levels was detected. In addition, evidence for statistically significant neutron emissions near 2.5 MeV was also observed, as would be expected for deuterium-deuterium fusion. Control experiments with normal acetone did not result in tritium activity or neutron emissions. Hydrodynamic shock code simulations supported the observed data and indicated compressed, hot (106-107 K) bubble implosion conditions, as required for thermonuclear fusion reactions. Separate experiments with additional fluids are under way and results appear to support those observed with acetone. Scalability potential to higher yields, as well as evidence for neutron-tritium branching ratios are presented.

Holy shit. Look at these figures of energy and pressures that can be attained.


The maximum possible extent of pretensioning prior to onset of cavitation for a properly prepared liquid such as water and mercury can be quite large and can reach close to -1,400 bar (-20,000 psi) and -17,000 bar (-250,000 psi), respectively (2-6). These tensile states are metastable and may be viewed for analogy as placing a spring under intense tension prior to snapping and explosive vaporization. The triggering of metastable fluids gives rise to explosive vaporization and release of stored energy which may be permitted to grow uncontrollably or induced to collapse to produce very high localized pressures and temperatures.
This process, if conducted with suitable fluids, can possess the capability of producing enormous energy density (factors of 106 greater than that from CHNO compounds like TNT).

I've been told that I need to look into this, and finally got my mind wrapped around it. It is fascinating the energies that are involved.

How is it emitting light though? How are the photons generated? They must be generated and emitted through vibration and compression. This is so interesting to me.
 Quoting: SickScent



Light is photons. Photons are energy. Energy is neither created nor destroyed. Smashing a bubble in a medium using sound releases light. Therefore there is energy in the bubble translated into photons. Therefore there is energy in 'empty space.' Therefore there is ether; there is ZERO POINT ENERGY. There is infinite energy all around us in all matter and all gases, etc. Everything is ultimately energy. It is a matter of 'acceleration' that causes mass or energy. By Lorenz's transformations, at light speed any mass would become infinite, time would stop, and length would become infinite OR, ultimately, mass cannot become light -- yet, we know it can by E=mc2. Tremendous energy exists in all mass. Mass is only subluminal energy -- frequencies. Speed of ossiliation = frequency. Slower ossilation = lower frequency. Zero ossilation is incredibly rare to non-existent. Time is infinitely fast (i.e., is quickly expended) in slower frequencies; zero ossilation of the electromagnetic spectrum = infinitely fast time expenditure.

The consequences of zero point energy is that in this incredibly slowly ossilating energy (i.e., the mass of the bubble) include rapid time expenditure of the lifespan of the bubble -- it is reassumed into the 'ether soup' rather quickly. Capturing the bubble in a standing wave can speed up its frequency, thus slow down its time, increase its mass, and translate its mass into energy. At a point of extreme compression, the bubble appears to cease to exist -- it does not, however... it is converted into energy, i.e., photons which are rapidly disbursed into the quantum etheric soup.

Your intuitive interest in the bubble is, indeed, profound. You have a sense of the existence of quantum-level zero-point energy and its existence all around you.

Every Class II civilization has learned this. We know this in my civilization (I'm not from around here). May you continue your studies. I suggest you look to Dr. Thomas Bearden and 'Zero-point Energy' for more information.
