12 11 Abstract of the second patent owned by the National Research Council about the neutron production by ultrasound nuclear reactions, see the web site

13 12 Abstract of the first patent owned by the National Research Council about the quenching of redioactive materials by ultrasound nuclear reactions, see the web site

14 13 Abstract of the third patent owned by the National Research Council about the endothermic and esothermic piezonuclear reactions for making an ultrasound reactor, see the web site

15 14 Bubble Detectors The nuclear energy generated by ultrasound reactor is visible as bubbles entrapped in a neutron sensible gel

16 Bubble detectors of various type
15 Bubble detectors of various type

17 Flux of neutrons versus time implulsive emission is evident
16 Neutron dose rate versus time

18 17 The nuclear energy generated by the ultrasound reactor is visible as a thick track on a Boron corrected polycarbonate chip (CR39 type)

19 18 The nuclear energy generated by the standard Uranium nuclear reactor at ENEA - Casaccia Rome is visible as a thick track on a Boron corrected polycarbonate chip (CR39 type)

20 (2) (1) The energy generated by the ultrasound reactor (2)
19 The energy generated by the ultrasound reactor (2) is twice as that of the energy collected by a neutron channel of a standard Uranium nuclear reactor working at 3 Watts (1) (2) (1)

21 20 Thorium alpha radiation tracks are highlighted by rings.
First column: the four samples of Thorium without ultrasounds. Second and third columns: the eight samples of Thorium with ultrasounds. The ratio of tracks shows that the alpha radiation is halved after 90 minutes of ultrasounds. Moreover in the ultrasounds samples there is no increase of other types of radiation.

22 Analysis of Thorium without Ultrasounds
Counts Concentration Sample 1 2871 0.0200.01 Sample 3 1671 0.0120.01 Sample 4 3631 0.0260.01 Mean Value 2721 0.0190.01 Analysis of Thorium with Ultrasounds Thorium Counts Concentration Sample 1 2311 0.0160.01 Sample 3 571 0.0040.01 Sample 4 791 0.0060.01 Mean Value 122.33 0.0090.01 21 Analysis by a mass spectrometer measuring the counts and the concentrations of Thorium with and without ultrasounds showing that the Thorium amount is halved (from volume “Deformed Spacetime, chapter 17)
