  Yes, the info from that interview with Parkhomov is very encouraging.  (See bottom of page 1.)

  I did some further checking on nickel - like some other metals, sitting in air  it develops an oxide layer that inhibits hydrogen penetration into the metal.  This oxide layer breaks down around 600C - which may be why "interesting effects" (LENR reactions presumably) "go critical" around 600C according to Parkhomov:

Quote
The system begins to produce anomalous heat at around 4-500C (as far as can be determined) but starts to ‘go critical’ and produce a more rapid thermal output at around 600/700C. then the thermal output takes off until you reach around 1000C. At this point the reaction may go ‘supercritical’ with a very rapid temperature rise until the fuel melts at around 1450+ . Even this is not guaranteed to stop the LENR process and there is a possibility of containment meltdown. Best to keep the temperature in the lower zone, perhaps 800-900 C


There may be other ways, like sanding the surface (of a nickel wire or foil) just before beginning expts, to lessen the oxide layer and allow hydrogen to "soak" into the metal...

In my experiments using the reactivity of aluminum with water I found that sanding only increases the surface area. That alone may improve performance. Should Nickel form the same instantaneous initial oxide layer as aluminum don't plan on cleaning the surface before use as the reason for improvement.

having delt with these Oxidation issues in the plating industry ,it might be interesting to see if the "chamber"
can have an "etch" run in a sealed environment and flush with inert gas prior to the test run??

Sooo many very good things to try here.

  Interesting videos regarding experiments by a group called "MFMP" -- they did Parkhomov-style experiments during the Padua, Italy, cold fusion conference:

Yes similar methods will need exploration IMO.
thx
