At ICCF-7 conference in Vancouver in 1998, Mizuno, Ohmori, and Akimoto reported[1,2,3] on electrolysis experiments in which Pt and W cathodes becomeincandescent under certain electrolytic conditions. Quoting from the abstract of reference 1 pertaining to a Pt cathode, “High heat output of the order of several hundred watts was observed from input power of tens of watts.” In other words they report a power gain of order 10 for the Pt experiment.
Then, in a subsequent issue of Infinite Energy magazine, it was reported that several other groups have succeeded in replicating the incandescent W experiment and that they, too, have observed evidence of excess heat production.
We endeavored to replicate both the W and Pt tests. As far as we could tell, our experiments functioned exactly like that of Ohmori and Mizuno. We repeatedly observed the incandescent cathode effect but we observed no sign of excess heat.
