TARPON SPRINGS, Fla., June 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Ruggero M. Santilli, CEO and Chief Scientist of Thunder Energies Corporation, a publicly traded company with stock symbol (OTC:TNRG), announces the development for production and sale of real time detectors of natural elements in mines via the use of the source of neutrons synthesized from the Hydrogen gas. See the short movie on the operation of Thunder Energies neutron source http://thunder-energies.com/docs/MagnaPower.mp4, the neutron counts per seconds from the Ludlum detector model 375 remote sensors http://thunder-energies.com/docs/Ludlum-Alarms.mp4, the confirmation of this detection by the Berkeley Nucleonics neutron detector SAM 940 http://thunder-energies.com/docs/Sam-Alarms.mp4 and the confirmation of neutron detection by the detector Polimaster model PM1704 http://thunder-energies.com/docs/polimaster-reading.pdf.

Dr. Santilli states: "The presence and concentration of natural elements in mines is currently done by sending soil samples to analytic laboratories, thus requiring considerable time. It is well established in physics that natural elements irradiated with low energy neutrons are transmuted into other elements by emitting photons, also called gammas, with a characteristic frequency which is different for different elements. Therefore the detection of the characteristic photons identifies with precision the presence of the irradiated natural element, while the number of photons detected per seconds, when calibrated over the background, allows the identification of the concentration of the natural element. As an example, when irradiated with low energy neutrons, the Silver isotope 47-Ag-109 is transmuted into the Cadmium isotope 48-Cd-110 by emitting a photon with the energy of 236 keV, and similar emissions occur for Gold, Lithium and other natural elements."

"Following decades of research I initiated at Harvard University under DOE support in the 1980's, and continued with private funds," Dr. Santilli continues, "Thunder Energies Corporation is in production and sale of a low energy neutron source (patent pending) producing a flux of neutrons synthesized from the Hydrogen gas, whose existence and operations have been confirmed by a team of scientists from the U.S.A., Europe and Asia http://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2017/05/30/1000034/0/en/Scientists-Confirm-the-Synthesis-of-Neutrons-from-a-Hydrogen-Gas-by-Thunder-Energies-Corporation.html. This neutron source is precisely what is needed to irradiate walls in mines, by merely adding a variety of gamma detectors to identify the frequency and number of photons emitted per second, by therefore identifying in real time presence and concentration of a desired natural element. Our Company is now seeking funds to organize production and sale of this cutting edge American technology. It should be indicated that this application of our neutron source is in addition to its main application, that for the detection of fissionable nuclear material that may be smuggled in containers or suitcases." http://www.b-tv.com/thunder-energies-nuclear-corporate-video.
