Title: (EN) Method to fabricate and stimulate an electrode to evolve heat with increased electrode power density
Abstract:
(EN)

An electrode fabrication method, electrolytic cell and laser stimulation system for producing heat and elevated electrode power densities in a water-based liquid electrolyte. The electrode fabrication process involves using a Hydrogen absorbing metal that will form a hydride, cold working said metal, etching said metal, polishing said metal, ultrasonically cleaning said metal and annealing said metal. The electrolytic cell of the system has a pair of external magnets adjacent to the cell providing a magnetic field across the face of the cathode. The electrolytic cell also has a secondary anode of Gold capable of providing Gold ions to plate over to the cathode during the course of electrolysis. The system also has a laser under computer control capable of tuning the laser to specific wavelengths capable of triggering heat evolution and elevated electrode power densities.
