This paper is a report on an experimental re-examination of the data reported by Westinghouse Laboratories on the work of Walter Russell. Nikola Tesla was so impressed with the theories and experiments of Walter Russell that he advised Russell to lock his knowledge in the Smithsonian for 1,000 years until mankind was ready. * Recent research has been conducted by the authors in order to verify Russell's theories and experiments. The experiments that Russell conducted in 1927, which were verified by Westinghouse laboratories have been repeated. Russell reported at that time that he had found a novel way to change to ratio of hydrogen to oxygen in a sealed quartz tube containing water vapor. ** The use of magnetic fields was shown to produce this effect. The end result of the experiments was to demonstrate a cheap and efficient method of hydrogen production for a hydrogen based fuel economy. Experiments performed to repeat these results have met with some success. This paper will present the theory and results of experiments performed in an attempt to duplicate these tests.Russell's work also involved the assembly of a device to produce energy from the background flux of fields designated by some researchers zero point energy.*** Recent research has uncovered experiments that were conducted by Walter and Lao Russell in conjunction with Raytheon Corporation in Colorado Springs and General Chapman of NORAD. The blue prints were discovered to still exist in Colorado Springs and the “Russell Optical Dynamo Generator” was found last fall in a basement, intact after 30 years. Documents to be presented will show that Russell reported anomalous effects generated as a result of his circuit configuration and magnetic field interaction.
