- "System for Electrolysis," USP #5,494,559 (1996).
The first U.S. "cold fusion" patent with claim of excess energy (2000%) granted. The Patterson cell contains hundred of submillimeter beads made by electroplating multiplt, alternating, thin layers of very pure nickel and palladium. It uses a light water electrolyte. It is considered the best of the electrolytic cold fusion type of experiments with complete repeatability and a record gain of over 1000 in one demonstration.
