Nuclear Fusion in the Quran

September 24, 2010

In a BBC documentary [http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/4270297.stm] about nuclear fusion and sonoluminescence [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonoluminescence] a new nuclear reaction was induced by bombarding a gas bubble inside a special liquid inside a glass container with very high intensity sound waves until the bubble collapses resulting in a brilliant flash of light due to extreme pressures and temperatures in the range 10-100 million ˚C.

Energy companies were quick to kill off the idea of Prof. Rusi Taleyarkhan* [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rusi_Taleyarkhan] by forcing the programme makers to conclude that although flashes of lights were produced and excess neutrons were detected, the reaction is not a nuclear reaction because the detection was not at the same nanosecond as the flashes totally overlooking the resultant energy. They did not even try to look for a constant time gap between the flashes and the detections to prove any correlation between the two events.

This immediately reminded me of Quran 24:35 which may be a recipe for a very similar method of producing clean and cheap energy at home:

أعوذ بالله من الشيطٰن الرجيم

بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

ٱللَّهُ نُورُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ ۚ مَثَلُ نُورِهِۦ كَمِشْكَوٰةٍۢ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ ۖ ٱلْمِصْبَاحُ فِى زُجَاجَةٍ ۖ ٱلزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌۭ دُرِّىٌّۭ يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَةٍۢ مُّبَٰرَكَةٍۢ زَيْتُونَةٍۢ لَّا شَرْقِيَّةٍۢ وَلَا غَرْبِيَّةٍۢ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِىٓءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌۭ ۚ نُّورٌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍۢ ۗ يَهْدِى ٱللَّهُ لِنُورِهِۦ مَن يَشَآءُ ۚ وَيَضْرِبُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْأَمْثَٰلَ لِلنَّاسِ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَىْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The Parable of His Light is as if there were a Niche and within it a Lamp: the Lamp enclosed in Glass: the glass as it were a pearl-like planet: Lit from a blessed Tree, an Olive, neither eastern nor western, whose oil is almost luminous, though no fire touches it: Light upon Light! Allah guides whom He will to His Light: Allah sets forth Parables for men: and Allah knows all things.

I have contacted Prof. Taleyarkhan and he personally confirmed that four more successful experiments showed that nuclear reaction (not cold but hot fusion) was indeed taking place. Soon after, he was forced to abandon his research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory due to alleged research misconduct without evidence and was instead restricted to teaching duties at Purdue University.

Humanity ought to study this verse very closely in light of the above sonoluminescence experiments and perhaps use olive oil as that special liquid as per the Quranic recipe, that is neither eastern nor western which may mean isotopes of the compounds of whatever olive oil is made of, and Allah guides those who seek Him.

I have tried to find out more about olive trees and have come across this interesting research done by a Prof. Abdelmajid Belabed* showing light-emitting olive seeds

Another investigation of sonoluminescence using olive oil mixed with other solutions [http://oas.ucok.edu/96/T96/Mkline.htm] confirmed its effectiveness at prolonging the bubble lifetime.

While a newly formed company, AquaPhotonics [http://www.aquaphotonics.com] has commercialized Prof. Taleyarkhan’s research and used olive oil for potential nanotechnology skincare, cosmetic, ophthalmic pharmaceutical, and eye-care products using their Aquaphotonics technology. Here is what they say on their website at [http://www.aquaphotonics.com/technology.html]:

Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Russian Academy of Sciences have reported results that suggest the possibility of nuclear reactions during the explosive collapse of bubbles in liquid, a process known as cavitation. The bubbles, which grow in the presence of sound waves, collapse to produce locally high pressure and temperatures. When a sound wave propagates through a liquid, the molecules in the liquid are subjected to positive and negative pressures. During the negative phase of the wave, tiny bubbles in the liquid can grow dramatically (up to a factor of 1000 in volume), since the pressure is below the vapor pressure. When the positive pressure phase of the sound wave passes, the bubble collapses, and the energy accumulated in the bubble during growth is released. This process is known as “acoustic cavitation”.

Temperatures in the collapsing bubbles can reach 10,000,000 Kelvin, sufficient to influence chemical reactions. These pressures and temperatures can be sufficiently high to result in light emissions, called sonoluminescence, from the collapsing bubbles. This suggests the possibility of producing densities and temperatures necessary for nuclear reactions. In particular, a long-sought goal of sonoluminescence research has been the possibility of achieving nuclear fusion reaction conditions.

NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration meanwhile summarized its findings regarding Sonoluminescence as a star in a jar [http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/20050217027_2005218573.pdf]:

Sonoluminescence: A Galaxy of Nanostars Created in a Beaker

As part of basic and applied research on advanced instrumentation technologies, the NASA Glenn Research Center is examining applications for sonoluminescence: ultrasonically produced glowing bubbles that are hotter than the Sun. In the last decade, those outside of the ultrasonic community have become interested in understanding sonoluminescence and in using some of its more interesting properties. First discovered in the 1930s as a byproduct of early work on sonar, the phenomenon is defined as the generation of light energy from sound waves. This glow, which was originally thought to be a form of static electricity, was found to be generated in flashes of much less than a billionth of a second that result when microscopic bubbles of air collapse. The temperature generated in the collapsing bubbles is at least 4 times that of the surface of the Sun.

Theories for the cause of the glow from a collapsing bubble range from black-body radiation, plasma ionization, quantum vacuum fluctuations, or coherent optical lasing. Even as these theories are being explored, applications for the effect are taking shape, from fusion containment to thin-film deposition systems. Glenn has begun an in-house examination of sonoluminescence to develop instrumentation and measurement techniques that could ultimately use the phenomenon to enable safer, lighter, quieter, and more fuel efficient vehicles for aeronautics and space transportation and exploration.
