The pictures below depict Prof. Santilli at the initiation of the year in his main capacity as originator, Chief Scientist and Chief Executive Officer of the U. S. publicly traded company
Magnegas Corporation. In particular, the pictures refer to the final construction and extensive tests of a 200 Kw Magnegas Refinery delivered to the shipper for Magnegas Italy on May 5, 2010.

On Monday, January 11, 2010, following fifty years of mathematical, physical, chemical, experimental and industrial research (see the five volumes of
Hadronic Mathematics, Mechanics and Chemistry)`, Prof. Santilli achieved the primary objective of his studies: the first known truly controlled and truly clean nuclear synthesis of nitrogen from deuterium and carbon, via a new process he called Intermediate Controlled Nuclear Fusion (ICNF). In fact, the fusion occurs at threshold energies (minimal energies needed to verify conservation laws), thus being intermediate between cold and hot fusions. As a result., there is no sufficient energy for the fission of any nucleus and the nitrogen is synthesized from the deuterium and the carbon without the release of any possible. harmful. massive radiation. The fusion is truly controlled via the control of the power, pressure, flow, trigger and other engineering means. The pictures below provide a pictorial documentation of this achievement. The results were published in the refereed journal Advances in Physics, see the paper
Experimental verification of the controlled fusion of deuterium and carbon into nitrogen without harmful radiations

A picture of Prof. Santilli on January 11, 2010, with the equipment actually used for the synthesis of nitrogen, showing: the deuterium pressure bottle; the hadronic reactor with internal carbon electrodes; and the Miller Dimension 1000 AC-DC converter. The test consistent in running a 40 Kw DC arc in the deuterium gas at 100 psi for two minutes at which time the test had to be interrupted because of the scorching of the paint of the reactor due to excess heat.
A visual evidence of the fusion: the scoring of the carbon electrode. In fact, the deuterium gas cannot combust when traversed by an electric arc due to lack of oxygen inside the hadronic reactor solely filled up with deuterium, gas following a vacuum. Consequently, the whitish scorching of the electrodes can solely be produced by extremely high local temperatures that cannot be possibly achieved via the sole use of the DC arc in the absence of combustion.
The new chemical species of Santilli magnecules has a cruciall role in the new ICNF, In fact, the new species created by the DC electric arc first of all exposes in a controlled way the nuclei of the deuterium and the carbon via a toroidal polarization of their orbitals. Without such a controlled exposure of the nuclei, no nuclear fusion is evidently possible except at random, as it is essentially the case for the cold and hot fusions. Additionally, the new chemical special of magnecules properly couples the deuterium and carbon spin also in a controlled way, without which no nuclear fusion can be truly controlled. Finally, an external action called trigger overcomes the nuclear Coulomb repulsion causes by the positive nuclear charges, and brings the two nuclei to one fermi mutual distance at which distance nuclear forces are activated, thus rendering the fusion inevitable. The need for a basically new chemical species, the first since the discovery of the molecules since the mid 1800s, illustrates the reason Prof. Santilli had to spend years of research in chemistry as a necessary pre-requisite to reach his ICNF. In turn, this illustrates the dimension, implications and diversification of the discovery. For chemical aspects, see Foundations of Hadronic Chemistry,

Prof.Santilli's new clean controlled nuclear fusion depicted above is centrally based on deviations within physical media from special relativity and, consequently, from quantum mechanics that have been notoriously established solely in vacuum. In the 2009 website we have provided a pictorial documentation of the experimental verification of this momentous scientific event. In the pictures below we provide a documentation of the first presentation at an international conference of experimental evidence establishing deviations from special relativity and quantum mechanics within physical media.
