Previously it was announced that Brian Ahern would give a presentation that would describe his theories about the basis for Cold fusion / Low energy nuclear reactions. However, I understand that he will not be presenting.
Here is some information that describe the foundation of Brian Ahern’s theories for Cold fusion – low energy nuclear reactions.
A method includes amplifying an energy release from a dispersion of nanoparticles containing a concentration of hydrogen/deuterium nuclei, the nanoparticles suspended in a dielectric medium in a presence of hydrogen/deuterium gas, wherein an energy input is provided by high voltage pulses between two electrodes embedded in the dispersion of nanoparticles.

The medium for amplification of energy is hydrated/deuterated nanoparticles are of a dimension between 3-20 nanometers (nm) and suspended in macroscopic particles of a dielectric composition.
High voltage pulses used are between 150-15,000 volts.
Brian Ahern gave a presentation at the 2011 Lattice-Assisted Nuclear Reactions/Cold Fusion Colloquium at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, Massachusetts) was held on Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12, 2011
Amplification effects for countable nanoparticles in the 3 to 12 nanometer range can also be seen with larger beads as shown above. The effect is similar to putting energy into a hose or rope to get a section of it to move with more energy like for a jump rope.
Dr. Brian Ahern presented on “LANR Nanomaterials and Anharmonic Systems.” Such energy localization evolves as a result of a feedback mechanism that enhances vibrational amplitudes in materials that have a characteristic dimension that varies between 3 and 12 nm. He believes the LANR excess heat results from energy localization produced by nonlinear (anharmonic) motions and forces in nanometer sized materials. He said these kinds of effects produce bursts of energy and he again showed unusual behavior. Ahern has identified and focused on a novel energy exchange mechanism that results in a new form of energy that was demonstrated in three Japanese laboratories in 2009. Last year, he demonstrated this mechanism at the 2010 CF/LANR Colloquium at MIT with a multiple pendulum to illustrate the effect. This year he demonstrated it with slides of anomalous anharmonic behavior. The anharmonic, newly-discovered vibrational modes at the nanoscale release nuclear binding energy from hydrogen. Hydrogen nuclei dissolved in certain metals initially undergo large amplitude, low frequency oscillations that bring the nuclei into close
By nanostructuring such metals at the 3-12 nm size regime, those vibrational modes are further increased to a chaotic level where this new class of “nuclear-inspired”
LANR reactions result. Th energy released can be amplified by external excitation methods such as ultrasonic agitation and/or high voltage discharges and other methods. Ahern believes that a theory proposed by retired MIT Prof. Keith Johnson helps to explain both CF/LANR and the superconducting properties of PdD, which are related to each other through anharmonic effects that are present in both PdH and PdD and which create what is referred to as a “Jahn-Teller” effect and the anomalous isotope shift in the critical superconducting temperature Tc, and the anomalous diffusivity of D over H, that both occur in PdD.
