LOW-ENERGY NUCLEAR REACTIONS (LENR) - COLD FUSION - CMNS; PRESENT AND PROJECTED FUTURE STATUS: Dr. Michael C.H. McKubre, SRI International

We have arrived at an interesting time and there are several indications that 2015 will not be “business as usual” in the CMNS field. I have commented often that it would not take much outside interest to convert our field from “resource limited” to “talent limited”. I think we are about to see that occur. How we proceed will depend on how we convert this “once in a quarter century” opportunity. Those of us in the field are well aware that data sufficient to motivate significant, serious, scientific and technological interest have existed for a very long time but with few exceptions (one being the US DoD) this has not occurred. What has changed?

Dr. Michael McKubre began his undergraduate studies at George Washington University and completed his B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Chemistry and Physics at Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand.  On completing his Ph.D., he was granted a two year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Southampton University, England. Dr. McKubre joined SRI as an Electrochemist in 1978 and was appointed Manager of the Electrochemistry Program in 1982 and Director of the Energy Research Center in1992. He is an expert in the study of electrochemical kinetics and was one of the original pioneers in the use of ac impedance methods for the evaluation of electrode kinetic processes. In the last decade, as Director of the Energy Research Center, Dr. McKubre has applied himself to the discovery and application of potential new energy sources, particularly those associated with the deuterium/palladium system.
