General Theory and Experiments on Low Energy Nuclear Transmutations [LENT]

When: Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 12:00 pm
Where: EG 306
Speaker: Yogendra Srivastava
Organization: Emeritus Professor of Physics, Northeastern University, INFN & Department of Physics, Director Project Preparata, Universita Perugia, Perugia, Italy
Sponsor: SPS

The general subject of low energy nuclear transmutations [LENT] shall be reviewed along with its turbulent history. Concrete evidence shall be presented showing that LENT can and have been induced by all of the four fundamental interactions: (i) (stellar) gravitational, (ii) strong, (iii) electromagnetic and (iv) weak, both in Nature and in the laboratory. Hence, the reality of LENT is no longer up for debate. The challenge now is to develop practical applications of the Standard Model of Particle Physics using modern technology. This is the aim of Project Preparata.
