Edmund K. Storms is a leading researcher in the field of LENR. He obtained a Ph.D. in radiochemistry from Washington University (St. Louis, USA). He worked in the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL, USA) for 34 years and did basic research in the field of high temperature chemistry as applied to materials used in nuclear power and propulsion reactors, and also studied LENR. Over seventy reviewed publications and monographs resulted from this work as well as several books and two patents. [1] [2]

He was active in teaching, lecturing at the University of Washington, the University of California at Los Angeles, and the University of Vienna. He was one of the few researchers at LANL who successfully replicated the claims made by Prof. Fleischmann and Pons. [3] [4]

After retiring from LANL, Storms continued cold fusion research at a private laboratory in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. He has used with success most of the methods for achieving the cold fusion effect. This work has resulted in dozens of presentations to various conferences (including the American Chemical Society, the America Physical Society and the ICCF cold fusion conference series). In addition, over 100 papers have been published including four complete scientific reviews of the field. He presently possesses the most complete library of LENR publications in the world.

Dr. Storms is widely considered one of the foremost researchers in the cold fusion field. In May 1993, he was invited to testify before a congressional committee about the cold fusion effect. In 1998, Wired magazine honored him as one of the 25 people in the U.S. who is making a significant contribution to new ideas. [5] He was awarded the Preparata Medal by the International Society of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science and the Distinguished Scientist Award by The University of Missouri.

He is the author of the books, The Science of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction: A Comprehensive Compilation of Evidence and Explanations About Cold Fusion, [6] and The Explanation of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction. [7]

He has also developed the theory of the Nuclear Active Environment (NAE) as an explanatory mechanism for Low Energy Nuclear Reactions.[8]
