Andrea Rossi claims he is working closely with what he describes as a “major nuclear physicist” who is a professor of physics at a university on his low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology. Unfortunately the ecat inventor did not identify the physicist or the university.
In a series of posts on his blog Rossi claimed that he is having regular Skype conversations with the physicist about the test of the ecat in Lugano, Switzerland in October, 2014. Rossi did not say what the two were talking about but he gave a strong hint at the next stage of ecat development and publicity in this intriguing post:

He is a mainstream scientist, a University Prof of Physics, with whom I am writing a paper regarding the Lugano results and the possible reconciliations, to which is also interested in. I am learning from him more than he is learning from me, for sure.
Hopefully the paper will come out soon and the identity of this mysterious collaborator will be revealed. One has to wonder who this person is and where or she is working.
Rossi has worked closely with mainstream physicists associated with major universities before including Giuseppe Levi and Hanno Essen from Sweden’s Uppsala University before. Essen and Levi were among a group of physics professors who worked on the Lugano Test.
An intriguing possibility is Dr. Brian Josephson the Nobel Prize winning physicist who taught at England’s famed Cambridge University. Josephson has met with Rossi in the past and has been an outspoken defender and promoter of Rossi’s work. Another professor Rossi could be working with is Judith Driscoll a Professor of Materials Science at Cambridge who coauthored a letter asking for more university research into ecat with Josephson. Driscoll is also a visiting at the Los Alamos Laboratory in New Mexico, one of the US government’s top research institutions.
Rossi could also be working with Dr. Alexander G. Parkhomov the Russian physicist who claims to have managed to replicate some of the work with ecat. Rossi has called Parkhomov’s work important.
The Ego Out Blog and the Martin Fleischman Memorial Project are both reporting that Parkhomov’s LENR device reached a temperature of 1200 degrees Celsius on March 18. It only required 600 watts of electricity to achieve that initially and an hour later was reaching the same temperature with 330 watts of electricity. The reactor burned out on March 20 but Parkohomov managed to get it up and running again the next day.
It looks as if LENR and Rossi might be close to gaining mainstream scientific acceptance. Hopefully Rossi and this physicist will provide some hard evidence to verify the claims about this technology.
