Dr. Stanislav Adamenko is the director of Proton 21, a Ukrainian nuclear research lab experimenting with nucleosynthesis, the process of building atoms from the ground up. They’ve devised a new process for nucleosynthesis that’s initiated by accelerated electrons to create a shockwave in teardrop shaped sample targets. The shockwave generates pressures normally found only in a nuclear detonation, overcomes the Coulomb barrier for target atoms, and generates what Adamenko claims are synthetic atoms.
Adamenko is a firm believer in measurable results, and describes the careful analysis of test samples that his team has done to learn the full extent of nucleosynthesis generated by their research. He claims that his team has identified and documented trace amounts of an array of new elements in the target samples that were not present before testing, and that the new atoms being created are appearing in proportions similar to the distribution of atoms created by solar processes.
Proton 21’s research is absolutely fascinating for a couple of reasons: first, because they’re doing nucleosynthesis with electrons, which shouldn’t be possible. The energy levels aren’t high enough, but then again they’re using the electron energy and the shape of the target to create a shockwave, which is exactly how nuclear events are traditionally initiated in radioactive materials.
There’s something even stranger: Adamenko reports that Proton 21 researchers have carefully documented the creation of “black spots” as a product of their nucleosynthesis reactions. According to Adamenko, the spots don’t generate any kind of spectral return that would let the researchers identify what they are: he says they absorb energy from the measuring device without apparent change. I wondered if this could be a form of neutronium, but I got the impression that Adamenko is looking for a more plausible explanation.
“We spent 3 months trying unsuccessfully to make a confined plasma fusion scheme successful, and it led me to an epiphany: we could use a beam of accelerated electrons to initiate a collapsing soliton-like wave-shell of particle density in the surface layer of a target. The day of our first attempt to generate shock compression in the target material was one of the most delightful days of my life. Our experiments were immediately successful. For several days after that, we succeeded in getting a 100% repetition rate for the axial explosion in targets manufactured from a variety of different materials.
Over the course of several months, we determined that up to 20% of the mass in the target sample underwent nuclear transmutation into a variety of elements not found in the original sample. We used X-ray spectrum microanalysis and mass-spectrometric studies to determine this. We’ve collected samples and test-measurements from tens of thousands of successful laboratory experiments, and performed over 30 thousand measurements using a variety of different methods to accurately determine the element and isotope compositions of the products of the target explosions.
Our theoretical studies and experimental research not only give the hope to generating Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR), but also significantly clarify the physical mechanisms underlying the LENR process. Thus, our work should allow researchers in the LENR field to understand the mechanism of these nuclear processes in order to optimize them for eventual use in commercial energy generation.” — Dr. Stanislav Adamenko
