The LENR-CANR.org ChatGPT is back!

Last year we hosted a custom version of OpenAI’s ChatGPT here. Unfortunately, it cost too much to maintain, and it had some technical problems finding papers. Two groups of researchers are now developing new ChatGPT bots dedicated to cold fusion. They are using the papers from LENR-CANR.org. The first one is now on line here:

LENR ARA By Diadon G Acs


“Assists in CMNS research, offering theoretical insights, experimental analysis, and innovative applications.”

This is a customized version of the OpenAI ChatGPT. When you ask it a question, it sometimes searches the web and downloads a paper, usually from LENR-CANR.org.

ChatBots have made a great deal of progress. This one works much better than last year’s version. It finds papers that relate to the answers it generates, so you can easily confirm the answer or find more information. Here is an example of an inquiry:


INQUIRY: What does Storms say about activation energy?

CHATBOT RESPONSE: Edmund Storms discusses the concept of activation energy in the context of cold fusion extensively in his works. Here are some key points he makes:
  1. Temperature and Reaction Rates:
    • Storms notes that the initiation of LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions) in materials like palladium and nickel often correlates with temperature. Specifically, he states that the amount of power generated in these reactions increases exponentially with temperature, indicating that the activation energy is related to the source of deuterons available to the nuclear process​​.
  2. Role of Activation Energy:
    • Storms emphasizes that understanding the activation energy is crucial for designing experiments and achieving reproducible results in LENR research. He discusses how various conditions such as high deuterium/palladium ratios are sometimes necessary to initiate nuclear reactions. This initiation often requires overcoming a certain energy barrier, which is the activation energy​​.
  3. Mechanisms and Catalysts:
    • According to Storms, the mechanisms that lower the activation energy are pivotal in making LENR feasible at lower temperatures than traditional nuclear fusion. He suggests that specific conditions within the metal lattice, such as the presence of nano-cracks and the precise loading of deuterium, play a role in reducing the required activation energy for the reaction to proceed​​.
  4. Theoretical Insights:
    • In his theoretical models, Storms proposes that a novel active environment within materials can facilitate nuclear reactions at low energy. This environment helps to lower the activation energy, making the reactions more likely to occur under the conditions used in LENR experiments​​.

Overall, Storms’ work underscores the importance of activation energy in LENR studies, particularly in terms of how it influences reaction rates, experimental design, and theoretical models. His insights into how activation energy can be managed and reduced are central to advancing the understanding and practical application of cold fusion.
