Advances in IR Photon Radiation Detection for Solid State Fusion


Japanese Nuclear Physics has a new paper being reviewed on Photon radiation calorimetry for anomalous heat generation in NiCu multilayer thin films. Leading figures like J. Kasagi and Y. Iwamura, along with Clean Planet Inc., are pioneering this field, using condensed matter nuclear science with Hydrogen to generate what appears to be Solid State Fusion events in/on a metal catalyst.

Historical Context in Japanese Nuclear Physics

Following the Fukushima disaster in 2011, Japan pivoted from nuclear fission to other renewable energy, significantly reducing nuclear power usage and increasing renewable energy to 16% of its power generation by 2017. This transition was driven by a reassessment of energy strategies, focusing on safety and environmental sustainability. Japan’s commitment to a sustainable energy future is underscored by its significant investment in energy R&D, making it a key player in global renewable energy advancements.

Technical Innovations in Japanese Condensed Matter Nuclear Science

Researchers J. Kasagi and Y. Iwamura have significantly advanced Japanese Nuclear Physics at Tohoku University. Their collaboration with Clean Planet Inc. led to establishing a Condensed Matter Nuclear Reaction (CMNR) research division in 2015, focusing on ultra-low-energy nuclear reactions.

NiCu multilayer thin films in solid-state fusion research offer a practical alternative to traditional methods of plasma confinement, exemplifying the innovative spirit of Japanese Nuclear Physics.

Future Directions in Japanese Nuclear Physics

Recently, Japan held The 24th Meeting of Japan CF-Research Society at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan. Here is the book of submitted abstracts for this recent conference that was held December 1st and 2nd, 2023.

Ongoing research in Photon Radiation Detection in Solid State Fusion at Tohoku University is helping to shape the future of Condensed Matter Nuclear Physics. This research offers promising technologies for sustainable energy solutions. The Japanese have been on the forefront of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions since 1989 with esteemed scientists like Yoshiaki Arata and Takaaki Matsumoto. Many Japanese researchers continue to lead the way in Solid State Fusions research and development.


The achievements in Japanese Nuclear Physics, especially in Photon Radiation Detection in Solid State Fusion by J. Kasagi, Y. Iwamura, and Clean Planet Inc., highlight the ongoing integration of scientific research and practical application for a novel commercial systems. Clean Planet aims at delivering its Quantum Hydrogen Energy (QHe) systems by 2030. Time will tell if they will achieve this delivery goal, but we will be supporting them in there endeavors for a more sustainable and abundant energy future.
