About Leif Holmlid

Research and development

We have studied Rydberg Matter formed by hydrogen atoms in detail, and discovered both dense (metallic) and ultra-dense hydrogen H(0). This latter material is the most stable material that exists in the Universe. It has bond distances in its molecules of a few picometers. Despite this, it is easy to start nuclear reactions in it by for example laser impact, and energy generation above break-even was published in 2015. The nuclear processes generate mesons (kaons and pions) and a large number of muons in each pulse. An intense muon generator working on this principle has been patented. This is the base for building reactors of the muon-catalyzed fusion type. Technical development is now done in a company which is partly owned by me and partly by GU Ventures. We plan to have the first reactor in operation in two years.
