  • Scott Chubb: A Bright Light Has Gone Out (2011) [Updated 1 decade ago]
    by David J. Nagel, Scott R. Chubb   read the paper:

    The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has a remarkable number of remarkable people. But even the best of scientists are distributed in their characteristics and impacts. Scott Chubb stood out immediately after his arrival at the Lab as an NRC postdoc, and for long after that. As the leader of the Condensed Matter and Radiation Sciences division at the time, I did not interact extensively with all postdocs. But, before long, Scott and I were talking details about the surface science computations he was doing at the time. His knowledge and infectious enthusiasm made it fun to talk about science and other things with him. We never published together, but for the past 22 years we have worked in the same field. These reminiscences are not a thorough account of Scott?s life, but rather a tribute to a fellow who was remarkably good both professionally and personally. He lost a two-year battle with cancer on 25 March 2011 after extensive chemotherapy, then many radiation treatments, and finally surgery for over 10 hours.


  • Questions and Answers About Lattice-Enabled Nuclear Reactions (2009) [Updated 1 decade ago]
    by David J. Nagel   read the paper:

    Asking questions is basic to many human functions. Without questions, the learning process in schools and universities would be vastly more difficult and less effective. FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) are a standard part of many websites now. The posing of questions is also an activity fundamental to diverse planning activities, ranging from the formulation of programs to the design of cities. And, questions, commonly driven by ?mere? curiosity, are the driving force behind science. So, one can ask: what questions are applicable to the field of low energy, or alternatively, lattice-enabled nuclear reactions (LENR)? That is one of the motivations behind this compilation of some questions, which are asked because they seem significant. The answers are largely the opinions of this author...
