In 2010, New Energy Times began an investigation into SRI International electrochemist Michael McKubre’s experiment “M4.” In the preceding decade, McKubre had presented this experiment as the best proof for “cold fusion.”
In our investigation, we found that McKubre gradually changed, added and deleted data points and values in “M4.” McKubre made all these changes without scientific explanation, most without notification.
McKubre is one of the most qualified electrochemists who has worked in the field of low-energy nuclear reactions. He and his former group set the standard in the 1990s for precision measurement of excess heat in LENR experiments. They designed first-principles calorimeters and performed meticulous, temporally correlated measurements of helium production in LENR cells.
