13 12Abstract 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 13Abstract 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 14Bubble DetectorsThe nuclear energy generated by ultrasound reactor is visible as bubbles entrapped in a neutron sensible gel
16 Bubble detectors of various type 15Bubble detectors of various type
17 Flux of neutrons versus time implulsive emission is evident 16Neutron dose rate versus time
18 17The nuclear energy generated by the ultrasound reactor is visible as a thick track on a Boron corrected polycarbonate chip (CR39 type)
19 18The 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) 19The 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.
